On the last Tuesday of Term 2, Beeliar LDC students joined with the Beeliar mainstream students to participate in NAIDOC activities for the day. The children dressed in the colours of the Aboriginal flag and were split into 5 groups, each taking turns at separate activities.
First was a whole school NAIDOC assembly with special guest speaker, Mr Len Thorn who gave a very interesting talk about the Beeliar area and surrounds.
A Bush Discovery Tour was held in the bush outside of the school next to Possum Glade. The children walked through the bush looking for and recording the different types animals and plants they found. They saw quenda holes, and possibly even snake holes!
Rock Art / Braiding – children did dot paintings on rocks using Aboriginal symbols like kangaroo tracks in the colours of the Aboriginal flag.
Leaf Art – the fabulous Beeliar mainstream art teacher made every child a clay leaf tile which the children decorated with paint pens. These will all be gathered and made into an amazing mural around the school. NAIDOC letters were also coloured-in to be used as decorations in classrooms.
Story and Dance – each group was given a native animal which they then got to make up a story / dance to perform in front of each other. They watched Aboriginal dancers beforehand and did a wonderful job of their own interpretations.
All Indigenous children gathered in the staffroom with AIEO Marie Lindon to make kangaroo stew and damper for all of the children and staff to sample at lunchtime.
