The City of Canterbury Bankstown is kicking the school holidays off early, with events and activities set to begin next week.

Council’s NAIDOC Family Day event, to be held at Anzac Park, Campsie, on Tuesday 3 July (11.30am-1pm), will kick-start school holiday festivities.

The event promises to have something for everyone, including:

  • An Aboriginal cultural show;
  • Aboriginal dancing;
  • A didgeridoo workshop by Diramu Aboriginal Dancers;
  • Children’s art activities;
  • A reptile show by Australian Wildlife Displays; and
  • A barbeque lunch for all attendees.

Mayor Khal Asfour said he was looking forward to continuing the tradition of celebrating the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, during NAIDOC Week.

"We have more than 2,500 residents in Canterbury-Bankstown who identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander," Mayor Asfour said.

"Our City’s rich history, communities, families and land are intrinsically linked to the Darug people, and neighbouring Aboriginal tribes."

This year’s NAIDOC Week theme is ‘because of her, we can’, which is an acknowledgment of the contributions made by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women.

From Monday 9 July, when school holidays officially begin, Canterbury-Bankstown has an exciting line-up of activities, events and workshops. These include:

  • A self-publishing workshop, for writers aged 16 years and over, at Chester Hill Library and Knowledge Centre, on Thursday 12 July (6-7.30pm);
  • Active Canterbury-Bankstown, in partnership with Sydney Knights Basketball, is running a Come and Try Basketball Clinic, for children aged 13-17 years, at Morris Iemma Indoor Sports Centre, on Tuesday 17 July (10am);
  • NAIDOC Connections Festival, a FREE celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture, at Paul Keating Park, on Tuesday 17 July (noon-4pm);
  • An excursion to Luna Park, organised by Belmore Youth Resource Centre, for youth aged 12-18 years, on Wednesday 18 July (9am-4pm);
  • Beginners’ guitar lessons for children aged 6-10 years, at Bankstown Arts Centre, on Monday 9 and 16 July (4-5pm);
  • Pottery and sculpture classes for children aged 6-15 years, at Bankstown Arts Centre, on Wednesday 11 and 18 July (4-5.30pm);
  • The comedic Sean Murphy show for children aged 5-12 years, at Bankstown Library and Knowledge Centre, on Friday 20 July (3-5pm); and
  • Comic Con(versations), workshops for children over six years interested in comics and drawing, at Campsie Library and Knowledge Centre, on Saturday 21 July (11.30am).
