In 2021, we’re focusing on the importance of culture.

 

We’re doing this through the ELLA program, where the older children are learning French and engaging in activities to learn about French culture.

 

Duncan Smith and the Wiradjuri Echoes also regularly visit the centre to teach the children about Aboriginal culture.

 

The children love engaging in cultural activities and have shown their willingness to learn about different cultures both in our own backyard and around the globe.

 

Over the past few months, we have been working with the children to create artwork that represents our Acknowledgment of Country, which the educators’ say with the children each day. We recite the below acknowledgement with the children:

 

We would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of this land.

Together we touch the ground of the Ngunnawal Country,

We reach for the sky of the Ngunnawal Country,

And we touch our hearts for the care of the Ngunnawal Country.

 

This activity forms part of our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) and our commitment to

Closing the Gap.

 

Each of the rooms created a canvas to add to our display. This is now on display in the foyer for our families, staff and community to see.

 

The children are incredibly proud of their efforts and we hope you enjoy perusing the different artwork by each room.
