The theme for this year’s National Reconciliation Week is ‘More than a word. Reconciliation takes action’. Reconciliation relies on all of us to take action and work together with love and respect. We all have a part to play in this journey. Get involved in as many ways as you can, not just this week but always.
Last week, we took 24 members of the Kinship Group, from the Primary and High School, on an excursion to participate in a Reconciliation Week community event, held at the Chris Cunningham Park in Tweed Heads.
It was a privilege to spend time with these students outside school and the classroom environment and to watch them interact with each other and the wider community. There were games and activities, including yoga in local language, information stalls, a BBQ, live music performances and even some stingray searching on the shore. We picnicked in the sun, talked about important things like what reconciliation means to us and laughed and had fun together.
We’d like to give a special shout out to Kyah Lotersztain and Kate Constantine for joining us and helping to make it such a great day.
