At St Agnes we celebrate diversity. Today we had an opportunity to celebrate this significant event. NAIDOC week is a significant part of our Australian identity as it celebrates the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People. NAIDOC Week is celebrated by all Australians and is an excellent opportunity for people to learn more about the culture, experiences and histories of indigenous Australians. At St Agnes, students had an opportunity to reflect on how they can Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up? It was a celebration of culture and the achievements of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Students were recognised during the Assembly. This Assembly was developed, and led, by our JAECG members (listed below). I would like to thank and commend them for their planning, organising and leading of this day.
