Beeliar News: Celebrations, Welcomes and Reminders

NAIDOC Day

On Thursday 5th November, all of our students participated in NAIDOC Day activities. We started the morning with an outdoor assembly in Possum Glade. This was hosted by year 5 and 6 Beeliar P.S Aboriginal students. Levi from TA4 wore a kangaroo skin and spoke alongside his Great Grandfather, Mr Neville Collard. Levi you did a fantastic job and spoke so confidently in front of the school. Three students from Lakelands Senior High School performed a Yonga (kangaroo) dance which was excellent and enjoyed by all. We ended the assembly with a smoking ceremony to ward off the bad spirits. After a break to refuel, our students participated in a range of activities including making damper with Errol, throwing the Kylie (boomerang) on the oval with Jacob, making a Mia Mia using sticks, learning about the lifecycle of frogs and turtles and various art and craft activities. At recess, the children were given a bush tucker biscuit which was flavoured with Australian native lemon myrtle to eat. At lunch time the children were keen to have a feed of kangaroo stew and damper. Yum!  Finally we were very lucky to have a story telling session with Mr Neville Collard in the undercover area.
