NAIDOC Week at Holdfast Sensory Playgroup!
This Thursday and Friday Holdfast Sensory Playgroup will be hosting NAIDOC activities so that children & families can learn and celebrate aboriginal culture through play, songs, art and stories.
NAIDOC week is a great opportunity for our youngest generation to learn and celebrate our local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.
Playgroup coordinator Kim Mead says “It’s a great opportunity to engage the children and families to learn and embrace our country’s indigenous heritage. It is so important to engage with young minds so they can learn about aboriginal culture right from the start”
Aboriginal students from Immanuel College and Immanuel Primary School will be visiting to share Dreamtime stories, teach aboriginal songs play traditional music and share their culture.
Kaurna songs will be taught so that they can be incorporated into all of the sensory play sessions, including a welcome to country song so that children can recognise that they meet on Kaurna Land and honour Aboriginal Elders past and present.
Many different cultures are represented at the Playgroup including families who have recently moved to Australia from all over the world. This gives an opportunity for all of the Playgroup families, including indigenous families to celebrate NAIDOC week together.
Holdfast Sensory Playgroup meets Monday, Thursday & Friday mornings during school terms
