GALLERY: Students have all the moves for NAIDOC week

FROM cultural dances to traditional food, the NAIDOC celebrations at South State School on Tuesday were more like a festival than a field day.

Up to 300 students, as well as parents, teachers and the South school playgroup spread out across the school grounds to take part in a variety of arts and craft stalls.

Finger painting, football and hands-on Aboriginal and indigenous-themed arts were the favourites.

Dancers, students from Toolooa State High School, showed south students dances and taught the specific moves.

Jinalli Laing said she was glad her school hosted the event.

"It's fun because people are enjoying it and learning all about our culture at the same time,” she said.

NAIDOC week was held from July 3 to 10, however the students were on holidays at that time.
