NAIDOC Week celebration

A flag raising ceremony will again be held outside CGHS in Sale to mark NAIDOC Week celebrations.

The ceremony this Monday (July 6) will be led by CGHS Koori liaison officer Sandra Neilson.

NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee. Its origins can be traced to the emergence of Aboriginal groups in the 1920s which sought to increase awareness in the wider community of the status and treatment of Indigenous Australians.

NAIDOC Week is always held in the first full week of July. It is a time to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture and achievements and is an opportunity to recognise the contributions that Indigenous Australians make to our country and our society.

The CGHS ceremony will be held at the Guthridge Parade entrance from2.30pm. Afternoon tea will be available in the Lecture Hall following the event.

If you would like to attend, RSVP to Jude Deedman on 5143 8833 or jude.deedmnan@cghas.com.au by this Thursday.
