In Celebration of NAIDOC
Updated: Jul 15, 2019
For the past 2 weeks, children at Dragonfly's Early Learning have been very focussed on the Aboriginal Community and learning and gaining an understanding about all things Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander.
NAIDOC Week Celebrations are held across Australia each 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 all Australians from all walks of life.
NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islander Day Observance Committee. Its origins can be traced to the emergence of Aboriginal groups in the 1920's who sought to increase awareness of the status and treatment of aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians in the wider community.
The NAIDOC theme for 2019 is Voice, Treaty, Truth. Lets work together for a shared future.
The children have been particularly fascinated by the Aboriginal sign Language and have painted signs on the trees in their play yard.
The original people of the Coolum and Yandina Area belonged to the Gubbi Gubbi language group which consisted of a number of Tribes
