NAIDOC Week is one of several videos we have under our Australian Celebrations and Commemorations video collection. See more below:

National Sorry Day

It is easy to feel overwhelmed when searching online. Often, we get millions of results, only a fraction of which will be appropriate for our research. A solution? Online databases. Using them is simpler than you might think. This program explains how you can level up your research skills by making the most of databases, which can save time and frustration.

Anzac Day

Discover why we commemorate Anzac Day, who the ANZACs were, and the important symbols and emblems of the day in this Miniclip. The significance of flowers, a brief history of Gallipoli and the role of flags are all highlighted in this clip, providing your students with a fantastic introduction into one of our most important days.

Harmony Day

Harmony Day is a wonderful celebration of Australia’s cultural diversity, held every year on March 21. The Miniclip above provides your students with an overview of the purpose of Harmony Day, what happens on the day, and how everyone can support it by wearing orange and treating each other with respect.
