Oxley Vale celebrate achievements and honour women for NAIDOC week

The students at Oxley Vale Public School kicked NAIDOC Week celebrations off on Monday with a special assembly that paid homage to the women in all our lives, and honoured Indigenous achievement.

While Naidoc week officially starts on July 8 the students took the opportunity to celebrate their achievements before the school holidays start, and explore this year’s theme of  ‘Because of her, we can’.

Assistant principal Genienne Ellis said that NAIDOC week is one of the most important dates on the calendar for Oxley Vale, where 38 per cent of students are indigenous.

“It is a really good week where we take a look int cultural awareness and understanding, while also celebrating our achievements,” she said.

“The day was really well attended and we had some great special guests.”
