Bathurst's Towri MACS Centre has embraced NAIDOC Week with a series of fun activities educating children on core Wiradyuri traditions and values.
Based on the theme for this year's NAIDOC Week; Voice, Treaty, Truth; the children have been learning about Wiradyuri culture through art, music, dance and Dreamtime stories.
"We're making sure to document the voices of children into our programs to guide their interests and goals," Towri MACS director Courtney Glazebrook said.
"This includes acknowledging the diversity of our Aboriginal families at Towri and upholding their culture and values."
Yesterday saw the children take part in an acknowledgement of country and join in on a music performance featuring a didgeridoo and clapsticks.
The children were also treated to a NAIDOC luncheon, which was made possible thanks to a $500 grant from the state government.
Ms Glazebrook said the value of providing cultural experiences for children is paramount to ensuring they develop a sound appreciation for Wiradyuri history and traditions.
"We focus on ways where can strengthen our children's connection to culture, community and country," she said.
"It's all about building a foundation for these children to become strong and capable learners before they start formal schooling."
Towri MACS caters for 72 children each week.
The centre will host an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children's Day event on Friday, August 9, featuring a host of activities for the whole community.
