Last week, students participated in various reconciliation activities which was concluded by a showcase on Friday. In the showcase, students shared their learning and activities. 😍 Miss Hunt also shared a beautiful piece of our Aboriginal Education work - a Long Street Primary School Acknowledgement of Country featuring stunning footage of our students and local region. We warmly welcome families to our assembly in Week 6 (this Friday) to see it! 🎥
FYI - Reconciliation Week starts on March 27th which is the anniversary of the YES vote in 1967 for the Australian Government to make laws for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and recognise them in the Census ✅. Reconciliation Week finishes on June 3rd which is the anniversary of the High Court Mabo decision in 1992 for legal recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the Traditional Custodians of lands. This decision paved the way for Native Title. 🧑⚖️
The 2023 theme 📣 'Be a Voice for Generations' encourages all Australians to support reconciliation in tangible ways in our everyday lives – where we live, learn and socialise. For the work of generations past, and the benefit of generations future, students act today for a more just, equitable and reconciled country for all. See: youtu.be/l-2PerYfxoE for more!
