Stars across Australia celebrated National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day with a range of different activities and events.
This year’s theme was ‘My Dreaming, My Future’, which recognizes that First Nations children are born into stories of their family, culture and Country, and carry with them the Songlines of their ancestors and culture, passed down by generations.
It also acknowledges that the Dreaming of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children is part of First Nations history, while their futures are their own to shape.
At Chaffey Secondary College in Mildura, our Stars enjoyed some early morning games and a hearty breakfast to get them fired up for the day, before hosting school staff and other students for a special morning tea.
Later in the day, some of the students attended the local community celebration where they got involved in face painting, games, and many more fun activities
Happy Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day for 2022!
