Welcome to Term 3! We hope that your family had a lovely break and that everyone feels rejuvenated for the term ahead. As most of you would be aware, NAIDOC Week celebrations took place over the school holidays. However, our Primary Team has put together a series of activities to celebrate NAIDOC Week this week at St Stephen’s School 🙂.
To kick start our celebrations, I had the privilege of reading the beautiful story “Finding Our Heart” by Thomas Mayor at our Assembly this morning. Following the story, I have sent our Primary students on a mission for the week; they need to explore with staff, WHAT is the Uluru Statement and WHAT they need to learn from it, as well as HOW they can “help to find our heart”. Every year level is on a mission to study this beautiful book and together with the teachers, will complete several activities to broaden their knowledge and gain a deeper understanding of the Aboriginal People and their culture. I encourage you to have some conversations with your little ones this week. I think you would be surprised as to how much they know, will learn and in return teach you 🙂.
We look forward to an amazing Term 3, filled with wonderful, shared learning experiences!
