Reconciliation Week 2016

National Reconciliation Week is an annual celebration and a time for all Australians to reflect on our shared  histories, and on the contributions and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.
‘Our Story’ reflects the fact that journey towards reconciliation forms a significant part of Australia's story, as do the stories of both trauma and triumph told by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.  It also encourages each and every one of us to make reconciliation part of our own story.
Over Reconciliation week students participated in daily reflections and students from a variety of year levels engaged in deeper conversations about reconciliation.  Whilst engaging in conversation students were invited to add to a canvas acknowledging reconciliation and the continued journey to reconcile our past.
Here are some students working on the canvas whilst discussing issues surrounding reconciliation. This canvas will be displayed at school for our whole school community to enjoy.
