Wear it Yellow

On May 31st, students are invited to wear yellow casual clothes to school for a gold coin donation. When you donate to “Wear it Yellow” you are supporting a bright future for First Nations children while learning about our shared histories.

All funds raised will go directly towards supporting Children’s Ground and delivering self-determination, education, health and employment opportunities for First Nations people. 

Recognise our shared history and celebrate First Nations Culture.

Why yellow? Yellow is one of the vibrant colours of the land. It is the colour of the sacred orchre that First Nations People have used for generations, representing deep connection to Country, earth, the sun and the land.

What is orchre? Ochre is used to paint Australian Indigenous art. Ochres are natural pigments and minerals found in the soil. These natural pigments (colours) were originally used to create Dreamtime stories and maps. They were used in body painting, rock painting, on artefacts and sometimes even on sand.
