Last week South Grafton Public School celebrated NAIDOC Week. This year’s theme was ‘Voice. Treaty. Truth, Let’s work Together for a Shared Future’ and it saw our whole school come together.
We held two special assemblies where our special guest Mr Brett Tibbett spoke to our students, our Academy Choir sung Amazing Grace in Gumbarrygir, two Aboriginal dance groups performed and our NAIDOC public speaking students read out their speeches. Kayden Skinner also played the didgeridoo at the infant’s assembly. Our staff looked amazing wearing their 2019 NAIDOC shirts (pictured), our students participated in NAIDOC games and classroom activities. We had students participate in the NAIDOC public speaking competition and our Aboriginal dance group travelled to Iluka worksite to perform but unfortunately the weather wasn’t kind. It was a great week at South Grafton Public School.
… the Independent would like to ask for your support. The community is reading our paper more than ever and embracing the content we produce, but advertising revenues across the media as a whole, are falling. Unlike other news organizations we do not charge for our publication – so, to keep our community connected and deliver the local news to your door we would like to ask for your help..... to keep the Independent bringing you all the local community news takes a lot of time, hard work and people power, But we do it because we believe our presence matters – who else tells it how it is, where it is, and what it is.
If you like our journalism, if you like the community news, if you like our sports coverage we would love it if you could help fund it, our future may depend on it.
