Beginning their morning with an assembly, the school community took a closer look at this year’s theme and its link with the Uluru statement, “from the heart”.
Joining Gloucester for their assembly were a number of visitors from Strafford Public School, Barrington Street Preschool and other home care centres.
The students organised and ran a variety of activities for everyone to participate during the day.
Some of these included, icing biscuits, face and nail painting, bracelet making, tabloid sport activities, rock painting, creating a hand print banner and a quiet reading area where students could read books by Aboriginal illustrators and authors.
This was followed by a delicious barbeque sausage sizzle.
The school also had a visited from Uncle Jeremy Sanders, a Birpip man, who gave the Acknowledgement to Country, played the didgeridoo, taught the students some dance moves and also told a number of dreaming stories.
A big thank you to all the parents who helped out on the day.
