Naidoc Week 2019​

 

 This feature appeared in the Spectator news magazine ( August 16  2019).

 

Woppaburra festival

The Woppaburra Festival event was designed to allow traditional owners/descendants to be on country and sign off on two significant agreements. The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority has signed a TUMRA agreement for the next 10 years whilst NKIEEC has signed a statement of intent.

Russell Reichel the chair of the GBRMPA , Bill Ludwick the local Mayor, Woppaburra Elders, 65 traditional descendants, GBRMPA staff and NKIEEC staff  were at NKIEEC for the signing of these historic agreements. A great event with much laughter, songs, workshops, reminiscing and banter about being on country. We feel  privileged to be part of the positive  journey with both the GBRMPA and the traditional owners.

The dining room steps have language displayed to encourage visitors to understand important information. Wonderful idea.​ 


 A whole school/centre  strategy is to make all visitors aware of the Indigenous history of this island. Indigenous students  are able to see the centre's high levels of respect.
