St Kieran's Catholic School Mount Isa celebrated NAIDOC with a bit of a difference this week.
During this time, St Kieran's would have held their annual Minii Murri's Under 8s day however due to the COVID-19 limits placed on participants, the school limited their celebrations this year to just the students at their school.
The whole day of activities on Wednesday August 4 combined NAIDOC Week themes, National Aborginial and Torres Strait Islanders Children's Day and Townsville Catholic Education Eco Warriors week.
Students were broken into mixed aged groups and activities included: Caring for Country, Getting Deadly!, Chillin' and Moving the body!
Under Caring for Country, students were involved in making animal tracks in sand, rock painting and looking for bird life.
Students listened to the story and created environmental art of the Kalkadoon Totem - The Black Cockatoo.
Students also made bird feeders to go around the school. Get Deadly! was a combination of cultural activities that encompassed the 2020 NAIDOC theme 'Always Was, Always Will Be'. Students engaged in identifying how local landscapes have changed in the Mount Isa area to develop and understanding that country does not change and our Indigenious people have a long history of caring for country.
Other activities included bracelet making, plaited wristband, boomerang painting and looking at artwork.
Just Chilln' activities allowed the students to sit back and enjoy some Dreamtime stories on screen, work on indeginous puzzles and complete some colouring in.
Students' even participated in 'Move It Mob Style' dancing as a warm up before playing Indigenous games on the oval.
