July was a busy month for us here at World of Learning Lilliput.
The month saw our centre celebrate two key events, NAIDOC Week and Red Nose Day.
NAIDOC Week 2017
On the 7th of July, we had some special visitors to our centre, who came to help us celebrate NAIDOC week. Our morning started off with our good friend Kendrea introducing us to the Elders. We were shown all the different indigenous animals that they eat when they are in the bush. After having a discussion about the animals, we were shown their national flag. The children then got to create and paint their own flag, using the indigenous colours. While the children were doing their art work, the Elders went around the room and showed the children their hand made bags, and the different indigenous artefacts. The Elders made traditional damper for everyone to try, and the children sat down and enjoyed it thoroughly. With all our tummies full, we all went outside and did a rain dance. During this day, the children engaged and enjoyed learning about the indigenous culture.
Red Nose Day
At Lilliput World of Learning, we celebrated Red Nose Day to help those families that have been affected by the Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.
During this day, we all come together and wore red to show our support for the community. We had fruit for morning tea, a sausage sizzle for lunch and pancakes fro afternoon tea that was prepared by the children, The event saw the centre come together to educate the children, to also build knowledge and awareness around the event.
