Students wore colours representing their favourite football and soccer sides and also participated in cultural activities.

Acting Aboriginal Education Coordinator Kaitlin Taylor said the students joined in on a few different sessions throughout the day, including cultural games.

“Flinders block classes discussed what Culture means to them and made badges representing their ideas,” Ms Taylor said.

“They also made beaded jewellery which, in many cultures, is made to celebrate special occasions and there were sessions about Dreaming Stories held in the Library.

“The Spencer block students created dot painting, damper on the fire.

“We were very fortunate that Rahnee from Communities for Children and her team of helpers came in to work with our Spencer Block classes.”

Ms Taylor said there were many benefits in participating in the day for the students.

“Community is very important to Willsden Primary, the main benefit from celebrations like Culture Week is that students get to experience and discuss different aspects of their cultures and the cultures of others,” Ms Taylor said.

“All families were invited along to join in and celebrate the day with us.

“We had an opening ceremony/assembly where students received awards for the hard work they have been doing at school, and Miss Jess’s class shared their learning about Dreaming Stories and the school choir performed several songs.”

While the students and teachers were enjoying cultural activities they supported a good cause by wearing their footy tops.

Ms Taylor said gold coin donations were given by those wearing a top, with the money going towards the Fight Cancer Foundation.

“In total the Willsden School community raised $237, which is a fantastic effort.”
