NATIONAL RECONCILIATION WEEK

This week sees a number of significant dates that acknowledge the history of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Australia.   Yesterday (Thursday the 26th of May) was National Sorry Day and from today until the 3rd of June is National Reconciliation Week.   The theme of this year's week is "Let's Talk Recognition".   It's a time to reflect and to consider how the past impacts on the current generations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.   There are events happening throughout Australia to recognise National Reconciliation Week.  Check out the website of Reconciliation Australia to find events happening in your local area, or to find out more about the work of Reconciliation Australia.
