As many of you know this week (4/7 – 11/7) is NAIDOC week.

Here at Sonas we acknowledge our traditional landowners the Whadjuk people daily but this past week we have celebrated Indigenous Australian culture with many specialised activities. 

We made tapping sticks inspired by listening to the Yerongpan dancer’s rendition of baby shark.  We played games using Indigenous symbols and spoke about their meanings and we emulated some Aboriginal Australian artwork.

We even made a loom so we could make some fabric celebrating the colours traditionally used.  

In addition to this we began our process of healing our shared country by planting a reconciliation garden starting with Lilly Pillys and soon to be added some Swan River Daisies and Everlasters.
