Celebrating NAIDOC Week 2017

Student putting handprint on wall with teacher assistance
​A prep student is assisted by one of our wonderful teacher aides to put his hand prints on the Mancor house panel.

​Kelso celebrated NAIDOC Week in the last week of term with a range of fun activities. All students rotated through a range of activities  including colouring, scratch art, reading stories and painting a banner to hang at future NAIDOC Week events. The highlight of the day however was creating the four large wall murals celebrating our house colours and names.

Earlier in the week the wall panels were painted in organic shapes that included symbols for each of our sporting team houses. Kelso State School house teams were created in the early days of the school to represent surroundings related to the Upper Ross and Thuringowa areas. Bibringa is green for the plants and the trees, Korowa is blue for the sky, Ross Dam and the river, Mancor is red for the earth and Tallaboi is white for the animals. Each child and all staff members put two yellow hand prints in their team panel. We now have a beautiful vibrant back wall.
