On Tuesday of Week 10 a group of students and staff organised a NAIDOC celebration held in the W block quadrangle. Traditionally NAIDOC celebrations are held in the holidays so we thought this year we would hold something before the term breaks (even though NAIDOC week will now be celebrated in November). The lunch kicked off with two Torres Strait Island dances led by Samuel Sailor and performed by the middle years Pathways boys class. Students then enjoyed a delicious lunch prepared by the MY pathways team and browsed the stalls purchasing icey cups, gifts and damper. There was also face painting available and a photo booth.

The celebration finished with a 100m sprint race for all girls and all boys. The girls race was won by Jazmeralda Mundal and the boys race by Jamahl Mathews. Well done to all those who ran in the race.

A massive thank you to all the stall holders and cooks who made the NAIDOC markets possible. It was fantastic to see the school come together and celebrate NAIDOC week.

KHS NAIDOC Celebration, 2020

We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians on whose land we live and work: the Jawoyn, the Wardaman, and the Dagaman peoples. Recognising their continuing connection to land, water and the heavens. Thanking them for their continuing welcome. We pay respects to generations past, present and yet.

As Term 2 draws to a close, we as a school community have much to reflect on. Despite all the distraction, we all have pulled together, strengthening our resolve and commitment in the face of adversity.

The school will be celebrating NAIDOC 2020 on Tuesday (23/06/20) of Week 10. We will use this Day of Celebration to reflect and remember, to never give up in the face of adversity.

Theme: Always Was, Always Will Be
