Talara Primary College will be celebrating NAIDOC WEEK during the first week of Term 3.

Why do we celebrate NAIDOC Week? Celebrations are held across Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. 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 organising 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.

Don’t forget to enter TALARA’s 2019 NAIDOC Dreamtime Writing Competition.

Look out for our Mural Displays inspired by Australia’s talented Indigenous Artist Sally Gabori.
