STUDENTS were free to call on all their creativity during East Hamilton Hill Primary School’s Naidoc Day activities on Wednesday, creating bookmarks, shirts and dot art pieces.
Children also watched a performance by Aboriginal dancers, tasted Aboriginal food and tried their hand at learning Noongar words.
Aboriginal Islander education officer Cassie Mippy said it was pleasing to see students engaging in Aboriginal culture.
“We always do different activities on Naidoc Day, just to make sure they really have fun and learn more about the Aboriginal culture,” she said.
“Every year it gets better and better. I get better ideas, the kids enjoy it every year.”
Ms Mippy said she gained a lot from seeing students keen to learn.
“I stress at the start but it makes my day seeing the kids smile and enjoying themselves and having fun,” she said.
“It’s the best day of the year for me.”
