Bellambi Public School is well known for embedding Aboriginal cultural education throughout the whole school.
The school's annual Community Walk for Reconciliation attracts thousands each year.
But, Aboriginal education officer Sharon Hanlon feels "lucky and privileged" to be a part of a school where that Aboriginal culture is celebrated each day.
"We don't just celebrate significant dates, we embed Aboriginal education across our school every day," Ms Hanlon said.
Nevertheless on Tuesday the school held a special Aboriginal Education Celebration Day.
Stage 3 students in Years 5 and 6 were joined by Koori leaders and elders including Aunty Sharralyn Robinson. They took part in a range of activities including eco-printing, traditional Indigenous games, rock art and Dreaming storytelling.
"Today has been a celebration of a six-week embedded Aboriginal program that has been run in stage 3, which is our Year 5 and Year 6 classes," Ms Hanlon said.
"Today was about connecting back to Country and teaching and getting the children to learn about the importance of our Aboriginal history and our connection to Country, and why we need to look after Mother Earth and why Mother Earth is so important to us as a people."
Aunty Sharralyn felt the Department of Education "has definitely moved forward when it comes to teaching the true history of this country that we all share".
I also want to encourage all schools to let all children be proud of, by teaching and making them aware that Aboriginal culture and history is part of their history, it belongs to them as well.Aunty Sharralyn Robinson
"All children have a right to know the true history of their country and I'm a great believer that anybody that walks on Country, it is their country and when the schools teach Aboriginal culture and history, what they are actually doing is teaching the children about a history that belongs to them," she said.
"I'm very proud as an elder that I'm part of that history and I'm very proud that we were the first people of Country. I also want to encourage all schools to let all children be proud of, by teaching and making them aware that Aboriginal culture and history is part of their history, it belongs to them as well.
"I'm proud to be part of the history of this country but who wouldn't be proud of having the oldest living civilisation in the world belonging to your country, part of your history.
"If schools don't start at the beginning, the dreaming, then they are doing an injustice to all children because they are not really teaching them the truth about their history.
"I think it is great that we've moved forward and come this far and schools have embraced it and that it is being rolled out in all schools.
"Bellambi has shined in this regard and that has a lot to do with Sharon Hanlon."
