This term we are studying Australian History with a particular focus on Indigenous Australians.

This week as part of National Reconciliation week a special afternoon was organised and many

children and families from our school community attended.

The afternoon of celebrations startled with Uncle David Tournier welcoming us all with a traditional smoking ceremony.

Everyone then moved inside where a range of activities had been organised including, face painting with Uncle David, boomerang making and painting, aboriginal drawing using dots and symbols.

The photographs tell the story
