NAIDOC Celebrations

​Students working under the guidance of the Yerongpan Dancers to produce a traditional artwork of the local area.
On Wednesday 31 July, Coopers Plains State School celebrated NAIDOC Day.
Opening our day, the Yerongpan Dancers welcomed classes to the hall with a Traditional Smoking Ceremony and Welcome to Country.
Following this, staff and students were immersed in the culture of traditional dance, art and tools of survival lessons and workshops. Further classroom activities throughout the day included history of culture, Dreaming stories, boomerang painting, necklace painting and other lessons to engage with understanding and appreciating the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures.
Our day closed with the Yerongpan Dancers sharing traditional song and dance,
the didgeridoo and the reveal of our traditional art school mural. It was a wonderful day of cultural celebration at Coopers and thoroughly enjoyed by all.
