More than a word. This was the theme for National Reconciliation week this year, and so we decided to put those words into action with our National Sorry Day Assembly. National Sorry Day recognises the impact that the Stolen Generations had on Aboriginal peoples, and in an act of solidarity, promotes healing and conversation among all Australians. Through engagement of the Southern Yamatji people and participation of all students and staff, we created an authentic cultural experience that acknowledged the past but also built connection and awareness for Reconciliation into the future.
