This year our Year 11 Media students present NAIDOC WEEK Art Display at Stud Park.
National NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia in the first week of July each year (Sunday to Sunday), to celebrate and recognise the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC Week is an opportunity for all Australians to learn about First Nations cultures and histories and participate in celebrations of the oldest, continuous living cultures on earth.
Rowville Secondary College recognises that these are the stories of the Elders featured, and of the first Australian peoples. We do not speak for Aboriginal peoples and do not intend to represent them or tell their stories.
The students have gathered this information from publicly available secondary sources to celebrate NAIDOC in the spirit of reconciliation, education and healing.
We would like to thank Wurundjeri Elder Aunty Juileanne Axford for her support and guidance. We would also like to thank Shelly Ware for facilitating and running an Aboriginal education workshop in class with our students.
