NAIDOC at NTSDE
The Northern Territory School of Distance Education [NTSDE] is using the NAIDOC Week poster as a virtual background.
NTSDE Innovations Project Manager Donna Murray said: “The virtual, rather than paper printed poster, is practical for a school connecting visually to remote students.
“It served as the backdrop in our daily video staff meetings, reminding us of the week-long NAIDOC theme Heal Country.
“Songs at the meetings were linked to discussions about the Wave Hill Walk Off, the Stolen Generations, and a federal government treaty with Indigenous people.”
The school’s IT trainee Naathan Smith said: “Music is a powerful medium for sharing messages.
“The songs have meanings that echo the importance of NAIDOC Week, and the preservation and protection of Country.”
