What this year’s Children’s Day theme My Dreaming, My Future means…
This year, Children’s Day is about asking Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children what Dreaming means to them, learning how they interpret this in their lives and identity, and hearing what their aspirations are for the future.
“Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children are born into stories of their family, culture, and Country. They carry with them the songlines of their ancestors and culture, passed down by generations. Their Dreaming is part of our history, while their futures are their own to shape.”
“This Children’s Day, we are asking our children what Dreaming means to them, learning how they interpret this in their lives and identity and hearing what their aspirations are for the future.” (SNAICC)
At NCNS we had two very brave students speak about what Children’s Day means to them. Angus and Jazara pictured below, thank you for being brave and sharing with everyone.
We also had plenty of activities from sand pits & castles, potting plants, playdoh, colouring into engage the kid in.
With a very special visit from Reptiles Up Close as a surprise for the kids.
