Indigenous Education

A range of activities are run by our school to enhance the education of our Indigenous students. Programs are also run to enable our community to have a deeper understanding of the culture and history of our country's First People as well as creating respect for the Dharug people, whose land our school is on. Below is a list of some of the activities that our students have participated in. We would like to thank all the people and organisations involved in creating these learning opportunities. If you would like to see photos from events please go to the gallery.

Our Stories

The Our Stories project was created by students, staff and local Indigenous community. Sponsored by Fairfield City Council.

Hip Hop Workshop

A hip hop workshop organised by Aboriginal health, with a focus on safe practices - thus songs about STIs and domestic violence.

The mentors were from Last Kinection, Joel and Naomi Wenitong, were totally fabulous and really drew the talent out of the kids. All material is original. 

Domestic Violence is a Big Deal

Don't Go to Him

Don't Spread the Bug

Touch Football

Touch football days are held to raise awareness of HIV within the indigenous community. 

PEEL Inter-school Activities

As part of the PEEL inter-school activities students have the fantastic opportunity to learn some Indigenous dances. 

Indigenous Art

Staff from the Australian Museum and Fairfield City Museum & Gallery come out to do a two-day workshop with students. They are taught the history and significance of symbols found throughout Indigenous artworks. The students are able to explore their heritage through examples of culturally significant items and how to apply these techniques to create their own story. When completed, the artworks become part of an exhibition held at Fairfield City Museum & Gallery. The Talk the Change//Change the Talk exhibition brings together the art, stories and music of local Indigenous groups and celebrates a bright new future. 


We start the week with a Flag Raising ceremony which includes a PowerPoint presentation.
