As part of our acknowledgement and celebration of NAIDOC Week, Ballykin Early Learning Centres has commissioned artwork for a new logo representing our belief in “Country & Community”.
The art was produced by Lani Balzan a proud Aboriginal woman from the Wiradjuri people of the three-river tribe. Lani is a nationally recognised Aboriginal Artist who has been creating art for over 10 years and has had enjoyed continued success across the country. One of her biggest goals and inspirations with creating her artwork is to develop a better connection to her culture and to continue to work towards reconciliation; bringing people and communities together to learn about what amazing culture we have here in Australia.
The artwork represents our soon to be three Ballykin Early Learning Centres at Rose Bay, Mosman and Cromer and our acknowledgement of the land in which they stand. It depicts our respect for nature and our strong connection to our Ballykin children, families and local communities.

Our NAIDOC Week at Mosman & Rose Bay
Both our Rose Bay and Mosman Early Learning Centres has jam packed week we celebrating NAIDOC Week.
This year’s theme encourages all of us to stand up and push for change. It’s also an opportunity to celebrate those who have already driven and led change in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities over many generations.
Here at Ballykin we are proactive in integrating First Nations culture, stories, music and language into our educational programs. We also collaborate with First Nations community members on an ongoing basis and enjoy regular visits which the children love.
