Performance held for Naidoc Week
Pretty Beach Public School celebrated Naidoc Week on June 21, with a performance of Wadjiny by Mr Troy Allen.
"Troy used song, music and didgeridoo, dance and fire making demonstrations to tell the stories of his people," said principal Ms Deborah Callendar.
"It was an interactive performance and the students and teachers thoroughly enjoyed it.
"Students were asked to wear aboriginal colours and really got into the spirit of Naidoc Week, wearing red to represent the earth, black to represent the people and or yellow to represent the sun," she said.
The theme for Naidoc Week this year is Because Of Her We Can.
"This year's theme celebrates the essential role that women have played and continue to play as active and significant role models at the community, local, state and national levels.
"It is also a celebration of mother earth," Ms Callendar said.
Naidoc Week occurs during the school holidays from July 8 to 15.
