Hands-on fun for Aboriginal Children's Day


Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children's Day is on this week


Mildura kids have the chance for some hands-on fun to celebrate National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day this week.
The National Day has been held on August 4 for 30 years and events are scheduled through the week to celebrate Aboriginal children, and for all young people to learn about traditional culture.
A pop-up celebration in Mildura’s Langtree Mall on Tuesday morning will bring together Mallee District Aboriginal Services Early Years’ service, Mallee Family Care and the ‘Little People Big Futures’ team from Mildura Primary School.
MDAS Early Years Education Liaison Officer Fiona Turner said the day would acknowledge the critical role that family, community, country and culture play in children’s development.
“The theme for this year’s National Day is ‘Early Years – we play, we learn, we belong’, so we thought it was an opportunity too good to miss,” Mrs Turner said.
“The focus of the pop-up event is on fun, with art and craft activities, Mallee Family Care coming along for their fantastic ‘Loose Parts’ activities and Little People Big Futures from Mildura Primary School joining in as well,” she said.
“The idea of getting out into the mall, is to raise some awareness about the day, perhaps reach out to some new families – but mostly, just to have some fun with the kids.”
The National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day in 2019 is promoting the importance of early years education and care for children.
Children’s Day is led by SNAICC, which is a non-government peak body providing a national voice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children (SNAICC). The 2019 National Day event ambassador is Nanna from the animated children’s series Little J & Big Cuz.
