Ginibi Dancers

The Ginibi Dancers are an Indigenous dance group who have been representing Southside since the schools inception.

In addition to this we take part in a number of community events that students are encouraged to participate. Activities have included running stalls, facilitating activities and general participation in events. NAIDOC Week celebrations; Sorry Day events; Harmony Day: Sunnybank Primary School Indigenous sporting events and FOGS Indigenous Employment and Careers Expo.

We acknowledge the Indigenous peoples of Australia as the first Australians, custodians of land and country, and we welcome Elders regularly to our school.
