National NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia in the first week of July each year to celebrate and recognise the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. NAIDOC Week is an opportunity for all Australians to learn about First Nations cultures and histories and participate in celebrations of the oldest, continuous living cultures on earth.

National NAIDOC Secretariat

This year SGCS celebrated NAIDOC Week early as the official celebrations fall within our winter holidays.  Our Community Prefects and School Captain, Tom Ewels, addressed the Middle School and Senior School Assemblies about the importance of NAIDOC Week.

One of the aims of NAIDOC Week is to narrow the gap between good intentions and actions. Our Senior Students had the opportunity to put this into practice by participating in a mufti day fundraiser for the Nungalinya Bible College, situated in Casuarina, a northern suburb of Darwin.
