Our school embraces the fact that our community is diverse and that we can embrace that to learn from one another and focus on being inclusive and respectful.
Our student body is made up of students from 57 countries and which we celebrated during our Multicultural Day assembly with a parade of nations.
We also acknowledged the great contribution that Aunty Matilda Bani has made to the local community. This acknowledgement was fitting as this year’s NAIDOC theme is because of her we can. We can learn a lot from the way Matilda has led her life and contributed so willingly and selflessly to others.
The day featured assemblies for Junior and Senior students, games and activities at lunchtime, performances at lunchtime and food from many different countries. Performances at the assemblies were well received by the school and we applaud the dedication involved by staff and students to prepare the day. Items featured were: a parade of Nations; Acknowledgement of Country by Uncle Albert Holt and Aunty Matilda Bani; Welcome Dance; Australian, New Zealand and Japanese Anthems; Didgeridoo demonstration; Bollywood, Polynesian, African and Vietnamese dances; Japanese (Kinjo school) and Aboriginal song. #becauseofherwecan #prideinaction #inclusive #respect #welcomekinjo
