Gulgong Primary School

This year, under the theme “Because of Her, We Can!”, NAIDOC Week 2018 will be held nationally from Sunday, July 8 and continue through to Sunday, July 15.

As pillars of our society, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women have played – and continue to play - active and significant roles at the community, local, state and national levels.

As leaders, trailblazers, politicians, activists and social change advocates, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women fought and continue to fight, for justice, equal rights, our rights to country, for law and justice, access to education, employment and to maintain and celebrate our culture, language, music and art.

This week we will be celebrating NAIDOC week. The theme for this year is “Because of her we can”.

Gulgong school will have a special guest in their school this year with Mr Lewis Burns coming along to show our students how to throw and decorate a boomerang.

He is a local Wiradjuri man. Parents and carers are most welcome to attend our free lunch on Wednesday which will start at 12.30pm after their assembly with the High School. On Thursday night the students have their stage 3 Disco.

The students will be raising money for the year six excursion.

The BBQ dinner starts at 6pm and the Disco will start at 6.30pm. Finish time is 8pm. Friday will be the Athletics carnival.

Good luck to all students who will be competing in events on the day. Successful students will get to represent Gulgong Public School in the Cudgegong Athletics carnival early next term.

Hoping everyone enjoys their holidays and comes back refreshed and ready to learn for term three.
