     What's On @ Star of the Sea



    Celebration of Learninghttp://www.staroftheseacleveland.qld.edu.au/Latest News/Pages/Celebration-of-Learning.aspxCelebration of Learning<p></p><div><p>On Wednesday we hosted our second Celebration of Learning for the year. It was a great opportunity for parents and families to visit their child’s Learning Area and look at the schoolwork they have completed throughout the term. These celebrations encourage students to reflect on and articulate what they have learned, questions they answered, projects they have conducted, and areas of strength and struggles. There is nothing more powerful than young learners receiving positive encouragement regarding their learning and a chance to display and demonstrate their learning to others. </p></div><div><p>Thank you to all parents and grandparents who attended our Celebration of Learning. We look forward to our next showcase in Week 10 of Term 3.<br></p><p><br></p><p><img src="/Latest%20News/PublishingImages/CelebrationOfLearning2022T2.jpg" alt="CelebrationOfLearning2022T2.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:561px;" /><br></p></div>

    NAIDOC Weekhttp://www.staroftheseacleveland.qld.edu.au/Latest News/Pages/NAIDOC-Week.aspxNAIDOC Week<p></p><div style="text-align:center;"><img src="/Latest%20News/PublishingImages/Naidoc2022Small.png" alt="Naidoc2022Small.png" style="margin:5px;" /><br></div><div><br></div><h3><strong>What does NAIDOC stand for?</strong></h3><p>NAIDOC originally stood for 'National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee'. This committee was once responsible for organising national activities during NAIDOC Week and its acronym has since become the name of the week itself.<br><br></p><div></div><h3><strong>What is NAIDOC Week?</strong></h3><p>NAIDOC Week celebrates the history, cultures, and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC Week is celebrated by all Australians and is a great opportunity to learn more about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.</p><p><br></p><h3><strong>When is NAIDOC Week in 2022?</strong></h3><p>NAIDOC Week will be held 3 –10 July 2022. NAIDOC Week is usually held in the first week (a Sunday to Sunday) of July that incorporates the second Friday – which historically was celebrated as ‘National Aboriginal Day’. <em><strong>As this falls in the school holidays, we will celebrate NAIDOC Week in the first week back Monday 11 July – Friday 15 July.</strong></em></p><h3><strong><br></strong></h3><h3><strong>Why was the NAIDOC Week 2022 theme selected?</strong></h3><p>Getting Up, Standing Up, and Showing Up can take many forms. The NAIDOC 2022 theme – Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! – was chosen by the National NAIDOC Committee. It recognises the history of getting up, standing up, and showing up – from the Frontier Wars to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities fighting for change today, and the courage not to lose momentum for change.</p><p>Sourced from SBS Learn<br></p><p>​</p>
