To celebrate the 2023 NAIDOC Week theme For Our Elders we have put together a special photo gallery.
Elders are not only at the heart of every community, they are a driving force in our community-controlled adult literacy Campaigns.
Many participants are older students that missed out on education the first time around, or they are returning to learning to refresh their confidence and build new skills and connections. Elders also make up our community steering groups, network of supporters and fill key staff roles as classroom facilitators and coordinators.
Thank you to all those that have paved the way.
You continue to be our inspiration.
Please enjoy these wonderful images as we celebrate NAIDOC Week – For Our Elders.
