NAIDOC Week Activities in Middle School

In celebration of NAIDOC Week, our Assembly on Friday began with the Middle School Pipes performing with Charlie Thomas (Year 12) accompanying them on the didgeridoo.  Tomorrow we will have the Year 7 and 8 boys creating Sand Mandala with future Footprints.  On Thursday, the boys will have the opportunity to taste some bush tucker with our Scotch College Indigenous Network Students (SCINS) cooking BBQ kangaroo, emu and camel sausages.  We will also have some special guests visiting the College.  Kam Bin Saleh, an Old Scotch Collegian (OSC) and an artist, is creating paintings of the six Noongar seasons that will hang in the Chapel.  Yarlalu Thomas, OSC and a current medical student, will be working with the boys to design an Indigenous school tie and apron.
