Talara Primary College will be celebrating NAIDOC WEEK this week (9-13 November).
What is the meaning behind the 2020 theme Always Was, Always Will Be?
Always Was, Always Will Be recognises that First Nations people have occupied and cared for this continent for over 65,000 years.
Why do we celebrate NAIDOC Week? Celebrations are held across Australia each year (usually in July) to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC is celebrated not only in Indigenous communities, but by Australians from all walks of life. The week is a great opportunity to participate in a range of activities and to support your local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.
NAIDOC originally stood for ‘National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee’. This committee was once responsible for organizing national activities during NAIDOC Week and its acronym has since become the name of the week itself.
The National NAIDOC Committee invites all Australians to walk with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in a movement of the nation for a better future.
There will be various arts and crafts happening in the Information Access Centre (IAC) throughout this week.
