What fun the juniors had last Thursday as they participated in the Junior Aboriginal Cultural Day activities. We’d like to acknowledge the Wardandi people on whose land we stand.

We had Josh Whiteland doing dancing with students,

At lunchtime, everyone was invited to eat some roo which Ang had prepared for them.  All-in-all, there was something special for everyone to experience our indigenous culture.   Thank you to all the volunteers and those who led the sessions for making it such a successful day!  🙂
