Celebrations took place throughout the country last week for NAIDOC Week, which is held each year in the first week of July.
NAIDOC (National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee) Week is a time to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture and achievements and is an opportunity to recognise the contributions that Indigenous Australians make to our country and our society.
As part of the celebrations, the students at Margate Primary School invited family and friends along to terragomna (gathering) on Thursday, July 6. For the full story pick up a copy of this week's Kingborough Chronicle (Tuesday, July 11).
