Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith yesterday announced a $3,000 grant to Penrith City Council to help deliver their NAIDOC Week 2019 celebration.

“NAIDOC Week is an important opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the tremendous achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples here in Penrith and all across Australia,” Stuart Ayres said.

“Acknowledging and celebrating history and culture is at the cornerstone of NAIDOC Week each year and it is celebrated at all levels across the community. I encourage everyone to consider attending and participating in local events”.

Penrith City Council in partnership with Deerubbin Local Aboriginal Council will host an event at Jamison Park offering a variety of activities to participate in along with stalls offering useful information

The NAIDOC Jamison Park event will be held on Friday 12 July from 9.30am to 3pm.

NAIDOC is a nationally celebrated week dedicated to recognising and sharing the rich and diverse culture of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians and the contribution they have and continue to make to our society.

NSW Minister for Aboriginal Affairs Don Harwin says NAIDOC is an important platform to celebrate our First Nations people.

“This year the Government is supporting 127 NAIDOC events across NSW – more than any previous year,” said Mr Harwin.

“We are so lucky to live in such a culturally diverse community in NSW and I strongly encourage families and households to get out and enjoy this vibrant celebration of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

“I wish all successful applicants the best of luck with their planned activities,” said Mr Harwin.

This year NAIDOC week will run from 7 – 14 July 2019.
