National Sorry Day and National Reconciliation Week 2021

Date Published: 24/05/2021

National Sorry Day acknowledges and raises awareness of the history and continued effect of the forced removal of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from their families, communities and culture.

National Reconciliation Week is a time for Australians to learn about our shared history and explore how each member of this nation can contribute to reconciliation.  Following this idea, the theme for National Reconciliation Week 2021 is

More than a word. Reconciliation takes action.

Further information about National Reconciliation Week this year is available on the Reconciliation Australia website.

 

We have also created a playlist of videos on Clickview for staff and students who want to know more about this important topic.

On this day, staff and students at our college are invited to add their voice to our Sorry Book located at the Mount A Mob noticeboard.

The message can communicate:

What this day means to them

How they feel about the experiences of the Stolen Generations

What they hope for First Nations People and non-Indigenous Australians or

How they can contribute to making Australia a more generous and just nation.
