National Reconciliation Week, held from the 27th of May to the 3rd of June is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared cultures, histories and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.
In acknowledgment of Reconciliation Week, our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students put together a presentation for the Year 8 cohort. During this initiative, these students shared information about their culture and history, explained the significance of tapping sticks and the digeridoo, put on a self-choreographed dance performance and shared an original song written by Year 11 student Nehemiah.
Following the presentation, we asked some of our students and staff to explain what Reconciliation Week means to them. We hope you enjoy listening to their responses in the video below:
