NAIDOC Week will soon kick off all around Australia and Foundation Christian College in Greenfields will join celebrations with a community open day.

Wangi Aboriginal elder Aunty Josie will kick off the event with a storytelling session, after which visitors can take part in a dream-walk, taste a Kangaroo sausage sizzle in a fundraiser barbecue, get

up close with some Australian animals and add their handprint to a special commemorative banner.

There will also be an Xtreme Obstacle Course for those looking for a bit more adventure.

Principal Keith Newby said all local families were welcome to attend the event.

“We have changed the format for our open days to suit all families whether their children attend the College or not,” he said.

“The purpose of the day is to celebrate our College families and share what we have with the rest of our community.

“Not to mention it is the last day of term and what better way than to give children the opportunity to have some fun.”

The Naidoc Week community open day is on from 3pm to 5pm on July 5.

Naidoc Week runs from July 7 to 14.
