NAIDOC Week 2020

NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia to celebrate the histories, cultures and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

NAIDOC Week is usually celebrated in July but this year it has been postponed until 8-15 November.

However the traditional week is also being marked by events in the department and in communities around Australia.

Events in July

On July 8 Aboriginal Education will launch an exciting new newsletter.

Some communities, like Parramatta, are holding events in the usual July week. The websites and social media of local governments and local land councils are good places to look for information on events.

November events

NSW public schools celebrate NAIDOC Week (8 – 15 November) with the theme ‘Always Was, Always Will Be’.

It’s a time to reflect and celebrate the history, culture and achievements of the First Nation peoples – recognising them as the traditional owners of the land.

NSW public schools will be connecting virtually to celebrate NAIDOC Week due to COVID-19.

Join the virtual celebration via video streams hosted by Aboriginal Education and Communities, each weekday morning, at 9am, during NAIDOC Week.
