ALPINE View Children’s Centre (AVCC) welcomed a visit from six indigenous students as part of National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day (NATSICD) last week.
The six indigenous students from Wadeye are currently attending Bright P12 College and Alpine View Children’s Centre’s Helen Crutchett said NATSICD was a great way to promote ‘belonging, being and becoming’.
“Belonging, being and becoming is of the framework we are currently looking at with the kids at the centre and having a visit from the indigenous kids is a great way to show our kids that we are all the same, no matter what we may look like,” she said.
The six students engaged in a wide variety of activities with the AVCC kids including, ice carving and play-doh.
AVCC student Elliot Ford had a great time sharing stories about family, Lego and football with Daniel Bitting and said he wanted the indigenous students to visit on a more regular basis.
“I’ve had a really good time playing with them and I want to come and visit every day,” Elliot said.
