Tuesday, May 29 marks a significant event for the Indigenous community in Seymour with Indigenous Secondary students from across the Lower Hume region participating in a Celebration Day being held at Seymour Sports & Aquatic Centre, Chittick Park, Pollard Street, Seymour.
Approximately 100 Secondary School students will attend the Celebration Day to learn about a range of careers and pathways opportunities available to them including an opportunity to participate in ‘hands on’ workshops conducted by Goulburn Ovens TAFE and North East Publishing.
The day will have a strong cultural theme with a traditional welcome to country, a chance to create indigenous artworks, traditional games with the Academy of Sport, Health & Recreation (ASHE), and performance.
The overall aim of the day is to begin to close the gap for Indigenous young people in both education and employment sectors and provide opportunities to participate in training and further education.
In the spirit of reconciliation, students will be encouraged to bring a non-indigenous friend along to this event. Families and interested community members are also encouraged to come along.
Activities will run from 10am until 2pm.
