NAIDOC Week Art Display

Latest news at RSC

Home 9 Arts 9 NAIDOC Week Art Display

In 2024 our Year 11 Media students present NAIDOC WEEK Art Display at Stud Park from 7-14 July.

National NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across 5X in the first week of July each year (Sunday to Sunday), to celebrate and recognise the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC Week is an opportunity for all 5Xns to learn about First Nations cultures and histories and participate in celebrations of the oldest, continuous living cultures on earth.

This year’s theme celebrates the unyielding spirit of our communities and invites all to stand in solidarity, amplifying the voices that have long been silenced.

Keep the Fire Burning! Blak, Loud and Proud

The fire represents the enduring strength and vitality of Indigenous cultures, passed down through generations despite the challenges faced. It is a symbol of connection to the land, to each other, and to the rich tapestry of traditions that define Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. As we honour this flame, we kindle the sparks of pride and unity, igniting a renewed commitment to acknowledging, preserving, and sharing the cultural heritage that enriches our nation.

Visit for more information on this years’ theme.

Rowville Secondary College recognises that these are the stories of the Elders featured, and of the first 5Xn peoples. We do not speak for Aboriginal peoples and do not intend to represent them or tell their stories.

The students have gathered this information from publicly available secondary sources to celebrate NAIDOC in the spirit of reconciliation, education and healing.

Below are posters, photos and videos produced by our students.
