RDHS Celebrates NAIDOC Week 2021
NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
NAIDOC is celebrated not only in Indigenous communities, but by Australians from all walks of life. The week is a great opportunity to participate in a range of activities and to support your local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community. Every year a theme is celebrated and this year was Heal Country.
RDHS held their Annual Flag Raising Ceremony and BBQ Luncheon with smoking ceremony on Thursday 8th July 2021, attended by representatives from the Robinvale/Euston ATSI community RDHS Board Members and Staff and Victorian Police.
The menu of Beef Stew, Kangaroo Stew, Johnny cakes, BBQ sausages and chicken steaks, shared around the campfire was a great way to connect with our community.
On behalf of RDHS we would sincerely like to thank Auntie Rose Kirby for her Welcome to Country and Johnny Cakes. Also we would like acknowledge the Food Services team for the lunch preparations, our AHLO, Ross Hensgen for preparations leading up to and on the day, and our maintenance staff for preparing the seating and fire pit.
