 NATIONAL RECONCILIATION WEEK 2020

This year’s theme for National Reconciliation Week is In this together.  A very timely theme in the face of COVID 19.  It reminds us, whe

ther in a crisis or in reconciliation, we are all in this together.  Reconciliation is a journey for all Australians.  We each have a role to play when it comes to reconciliation so that, collectively, we can build relationships and communities that value Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, histories,  cultures, and futures.  During Reconciliation Week, we are each challenged to gain a little more knowledge or a new insight into our First Peoples’ story – past and present.
