National Reconciliation Week - 27th of May to 3rd of June
National Reconciliation Week (NRW) is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia. The dates for NRW remain the same each year; 27 May to 3 June.
This year Lloyd Street recognised Reconciliation Week in a range of ways, culminating in a whole school assembly on Friday morning. Activities included storytelling, drinking bush tea, and the making of reconciliation arm bands in the library at lunch times or visiting the art room to contribute to the beautiful artworks, above, which are painted in Indigenous style.
Students also took action by creating hair scrunchies, in Indigenous print and donating the money they made to an organisation supporting Indigenous Literacy.
All students have been learning about Reconciliation Week and Indigenous Culture more broadly as part of the classroom program. It was fantastic to hear the students from level 2 to level 4 share their understandings at this morning assembly. It was also wonderful to hear from our Foundation students who shared a song.
We were fortunate to welcome Gheran Steele, CEO of the Boon Wurrang Foundation, Tom Moloney, Vice President of Reconciliation Stonnington and Jenny Goldsmith a representative of Reconciliation Stonnington to our assembly.
