Past Events

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day

Kurranulla proudly celebrated National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day (Children’s Day) held yesterday, 4 August.

In 2020, the theme of “We are the Elders of tomorrow, hear our voice” acknowledged the role that children play as future custodians of First Nations cultures, and the importance of their voices being heard.

Our Elders are the holders of traditional knowledge, working to uphold the rights and improve the lives of all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Passing on our traditions from generation to generation over thousands of years is why Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures are some of the oldest on earth.

Children’s Day celebrates the unique knowledge and wisdom of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, starting in childhood, and has been marked since 1988.

The date, 4 August, was chosen to communally celebrate the birthdays of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people taken from their families at a young age – the Stolen Generations.

We want our children to grow up strong, proud of their identities.

EORA Elders Olympics

The EORA Elders Olympics provides Elders with an opportunity to enjoy and participate in sport and recreational activities that promote good health and an active lifestyle. The event recognises the significant contribution Elders make to their communities, and promotes the benefits of exercise for both the body and mind.

Five teams compete in the Olympics: Kurranulla Aboriginal Corporation, Wyanga Aboriginal Aged Care, Australian Unity, Redfern Aboriginal Medical Service and Guriwal Aboriginal Corporation.

The teams compete in a day of competition with events as varied as Gorri, Pass the Footy, Quoits, Kee’an, Egg & Spoon, and more, with the day culminating in a 100 metre team relay race.

The event has been held since 2015 and aims to raise awareness of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture within south-eastern Sydney.

It also promotes healthy lifestyles and wellbeing, provides opportunities for engagement in social activities and encourages participants to develop ongoing networks.

Information stalls at the event also provide attendees with advice on disability services, health checks, nutrition and healthy lifestyle.
