South Newman PS Special naidoc edition
Throughout this last week of term, classes have been participating in NAIDOC activities to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
Thursday was the official day for our school to recognise NAIDOC. Highlights of the day included the NAIDOC assembly, beautiful singing, storytelling, aboriginal dancing and the cultural spear & boomerang throwing on the oval.
We would like to thank our special guests for sharing their time and to everyone who participated in an amazing day!

NAIDOC - Classroom Doors
Each class created a door design inspired by NAIDOC. Miss Phyllis Lockyer and Mrs Melba Wallam were our special judges and had this to say about our doors:
"Judging the doors was a very special moment. To walk through and see, made me feel very proud and also brought tears to my eyes. To see what each child has put into it moves me. As an Aboriginal person, the paintings and pictures move me spiritually." - Phyllis Lockyer.
