About this Event

Nikara's Journey is a two day workshop that provides carers of Aboriginal children with introductory knowledge and understanding to assist them in supporting the best interest of Aboriginal children who are in their care.

The training follows the story of Nikara and her foster parents as they learn how to support Nikara, keep her safe, respect her identity and keep her connected to her culture, family and community.

This training will run from 9:30am - 4pm on the 30th and 31st of October, 2019.

Ticket prices include catering.

VACCA's Carer Bag

VACCA has developed a Carer Bag packed with cultural resources to assist in engaging younger Aboriginal children, which is available to purchase through this course.

The Carer Bag contains:

  • A VACCA Life Book, where you can record photos, certificates, scrapbook and much more memories for a child to look back on in the years to come. The Life Book is a journey for everyone to share in.
  • Yarnin’ Up STRONG for our Bubup Affirmation Cards, a resource made by Aboriginal parents, for Aboriginal families, workers and carers of Aboriginal children. The intent of the cards is to reinforce to children that they are strong and deadly and help them feel positive and proud.
  • VACCA's Learning Poster Series Bundle, a set of 5 learning posters designed for early years and primary school Koorie kids to promote learning first words, colours, time tables, the alphabet and counting to 20. The posters feature Koorie designs and Koorie colours.
  • A Koorie Bear, VACCA's adorable teddy bears for children of all ages. The Koorie Bears have important numbers for children in need, which are printed on both paws.
  • A Narrun Yana Tote Bag, a deadly tote bag designed by the young people in VACCA's Art Collective, Narrun Yana.
