NAIDOC Week 2020 is just around the corner, running from November 8 to 15, and The Entrance Public School and Yerin Aboriginal Health Services have been provided with federal grants to help celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait excellence and Australia’s rich history and culture.
The Entrance Public School will receive $2,500 and Yerin Aboriginal Health Services $1,000 as part of the Morrison Government’s $1.4M program to support local organisations to celebrate the week.
Senator for NSW, Jim Molan, invites everyone to get involved, learn more about local Indigenous cultures, and share in the traditions that make Australia unique.
“NAIDOC Week is always a special event on the community calendar,” Senator Molan said.
The Entrance Public School is hosting TEPS NAIDOC Activity Day and Yerin Aboriginal Health Services is hosting the community launch of a new outreach dental clinic at Woy Woy.
This year’s theme, Always Was Always Will Be, highlights Australia’s ancient history and celebrates the traditions and cultures that endure today.
“We are privileged to have one of the world’s oldest continuous cultures, and through NAIDOC events, we can share in this proud history and contemplate our future,” Senator Molan said.
