Reconciliation Event; 1st June 2012

Everyone is welcome to attend this event, I will be there in my capacity as both Councillor and as Aboriginal Education Teacher with a group of year 8 and 9 Aboriginal students from Urrbrae High.

This year the focus will take the national theme of "Let's Talk Reconciliation".  John Packham, a respected and experienced Indigenous Cultural Instructor from  Tandanya National Aboriginal Cultural Institute, will lead our event at Heywood Park on 1 June at 10.30am. We have invited schools to attend and some schools have taken up the offer of doing short five minute presentations on the theme of Reconciliation arising from their studies.

The morning will be a mixture of an Indigenous acknowledgment and its cultural significance, interactive storytelling, music and presentations by local schools. Invitations to all local schools have been circulated. We will attempt to retain an informality about the morning to evoke the spirit of togetherness.

Should the weather be inclement, the event will be held in the Town Hall.

Cultural Development Coordinator
