PSA marks NAIDOC Week

From 3-10 July 2016, Australia will mark NAIDOC Week, which celebrates Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and recognises Indigenous people’s contributions to our country.

Songline: A Living Narrative is the theme for the week in 2016.

Just over three percent of PSA members identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander, while many members work in departments such as the Aboriginal Housing Office.

NAIDOC has a useful website to visit for ideas on how to celebrate the world’s oldest continual culture.

Local councils such as the City of Sydney, Blacktown City and the new Inner West Council will be putting on community events to mark the week.

Check local websites for other council events.

The PSA has recently appointed Ann Weldon as Aboriginal Liaison Officer on a six-month posting.

Before then, she was at the Metro North Region – Parramatta Local Office and the Rosebery ADHC Office for Metro South Region.
