Happy NAIDOC Week!

Last week local schools had a wonderful opportunity to celebrate NAIDOC with the Eden Aboriginal Community at Jigamy Farm!

Over 430 students attended over 3 days and teacher and students loved the activities. The students were able to connect with the NAIDOC theme while eating johnny cakes, learning about yams, seed grinding and looking at the displays inside the centre.

Thank you to Monaroo- Bobberer-Gudu Culture Centre at Jigamy for hosting this wonderful event for the 9th year running!

Thanks also to National Parks and Wildlife Service for their support.
