Pupils from Crawford and Wooroolin State schools joined with students at Tingoora this morning to celebrate NAIDOC Day.

NAIDOC Week is celebrated nationally in July but South Burnett schools have been taking turns to hold their own special celebrations over the past few weeks.

The children enjoyed painting boomerangs and didgeridoos, listening to Dreamtime stories and learning more about Aboriginal culture.

The NAIDOC fun and games were also combined with “healthy living” messages.

The students learned about eating healthy foods, why they should drink water rather than sugary drinks, and all about healthy teeth from representatives from Queensland Health and RHealth.
