NAIDOC Week is a nationally significant annual event that celebrates the achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. This module will provide early learning professionals an opportunity to consider how they engage with and celebrate NAIDOC Week in their local community context. It shares the stories of two services and their approach to NAIDOC Week, including how the week forms part of their approach to embedding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives in their everyday programs.

Engaging in this module will help participants deepen their practice by reflecting on the two stories and considering their own approach to NAIDOC Week.

In this webcast you will:

  • touch on the significance of NAIDOC Week
  • hear from two different early learning services about their approaches to NAIDOC Week
  • reflect on how your service might approach future NAIDOC Week celebrations.
