NAIDOC (National Aborigines and Islander Day Observance Committee) Week at HHHS
05 Jun 2017
NAIDOC (National Aborigines and Islander Day Observance Committee) Week is an important time
for Australians. It is a week where we reinforce our commitment to learning and understanding our
shared history and officially celebrate the rich Indigenous cultures of Australia.
NAIDOC Week this year falls during the school holidays, so Hunters Hill High School has decided to
dedicate Week 9 (Monday 19th June-Friday 23rd June) to mark the occasion as a community.
On Monday 19th June the whole school will participate in a mufti day - wearing RED, YELLOW and BLACK out of respect for the Aboriginal flag. The gold coin donation will go towards the Indigenous Literacy Foundation - a foundation we have supported for several years.
The whole school assembly on the Monday will be opened by an Aboriginal elder who will do a Welcome to Country, and will be followed by a smoking ceremony and didgeridoo performance.
Year 7 and 8 will also participate in the painting of message stones later in the day with Koomurri tutors.
