Kelso High and Perthville Public schools team up for NAIDOC celebrations

KELSO High School students have been sharing indigenous stories, games and teachings as part of their NAIDOC celebrations.

The students, who are part of the Generation Now Mentoring Program, have visited five schools during the past fortnight, including Perthville Public School on Thursday.

Kelso staff members Rebecca Bosianek and Casey Mackay said around 80 primary schools students took part in the activities during the Perthville visit.

“They have worked with primary schools students to deliver a NAIDOC program which included painting boomerangs and murals, teaching traditional indigenous games,” Ms Bosianek said.

“Eleven students from Kelso High Campus lead the activities.

“The high school students were great leaders on the day and the primary school students thoroughly enjoyed themselves.”
