Parkview students enter their hall through the school's tribute to the Tent Embassy.

Parkview Public School has again celebrated NAIDOC Week in style, this year creating a tribute to the 40th Anniversary of the Aboriginal Tent Embassy as well as making contributions to the Leeton Shire Council's Flag Raising Ceremony and the Leeton Aboriginal Land Council's NAIDOC Week Celebrations in Mountford Park courtesy of the school's Wiradjuri Dance Group.

All students were engaged with the tribute to the Aboriginal Tent Embassy, adding personalised artwork to imitation tent canvas that served as entry feature to the school's NAIDOC Week Assembly. The assembly was also highlighted by the presentation of a brief history of the significance of the Tent Embassy from students Ziggie Vincent and Alanis Wortley.

Parkview's NAIDOC Week Coordinator Miss Paige Frazer complemented all students on their contributions to this years celebrations. "The students have really enjoyed learning about the Tent Embassy and its significance not only to Aboriginal people but its key role in helping to develop modern Australia."

Parkview's Wiradjuri Dance Group also performed at the school's assembly, one of three performances during a busy NAIDOC Week schedule for the children.
