Students celebrate NAIDOC


FOSTER Primary School celebrated NAIDOC Week at the end of term, with the support of parent Kane Horvath and Koorie education support officer Anne Maree Stever.

This year NAIDOC Week fell in the school holidays so the school decided to bring the activities forward a week to recognise and acknowledge the time.

All week, Aboriginal music was played at the end of lunchtime and recess, using a CD supplied by Kane.

He and Anne Maree visited the school for a day, talking to students about NAIDOC Week, and the cultural and musical significance of boomerangs and clapsticks.

Children selected a boomerang or set of clapsticks to decorate with Aboriginal art.

Aboriginal students from Foster Secondary College helped younger students which made a connection between the schools.

Musical art: Foster Primary School students Zed, Josh, Vance and Noah had a great time decorating boomerangs and clapsticks in traditional Aboriginal art during their school’s NAIDOC Week celebrations recently.
