Comet Bay College’s radio aired music by Indigenous artists last week, to complement the school’s vast NAIDOC Week celebrations.
NAIDOC Week is traditionally celebrated across the country in July, but COVID-19 restrictions saw this year’s event moved to November.
Positive Culture Team (PCT) Dean Kelly Hulin said the College has worked within social gathering restrictions to deliver a diverse array of NAIDOC activities to students right across the year.
Students have created an Indigenous-inspired artwork on display at out PCT building, painted totems to add colour to our native gardens, enjoyed a visit from internationally recognised didgeridoo player Levi Islam, and been inspired by guest speak Maitland Hill from Kaarak Dreaming.
Students will also be working with local resident Mary Indich this week to redesign our House emblems to represent a stronger indigenous influence.
“What has been wonderful about this year’s activities is we have produced a lot of permanent artwork that enhances the College,” Ms Hulin said.
“We’ve worked very closely with our Aboriginal Islander Education Officer Lee-Anne Hay who has helped design activities that engage indigenous students, their parents and families and our broader community to develop an environment that displays and respects Aboriginal histories, cultures and language.”
