NAIDOC DAY     2000

Malanda High School celebrated NAIDOC DAY 2000 after the school holidays, on Monday the 31st of July. The Ngadjonji elders were invited to become 'school grandparents' and planted the first of the trees in the school's nascent Bushtucker Garden. Aboriginal rangers from Lake Eacham National Park will co-ordinate with the school to tend and expand the native garden.

Helped by Aborignal Ranger Warren Canendo, Miss Jessie Calico plants a River Cherry and looks forward to the day all the children can try her native fruit.
