Reconciliation Week 26 May - 3 June

Lachlan with one of my students

Last year this was a great event, I encourage you to attend. I will be going with some of my Aboriginal students to enjoy the morning.

Friday 31 May 10am
Heywood Park, Addiscombe Place, Unley Park.
Each year National Reconciliation Week celebrates the rich culture and history of the First Australians. It is the ideal time for everyone to join the reconciliation conversation and to think about how we can help turn around the disadvantage experienced by many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. (Reconciliation Australia website)
This year the focus will take the national theme of "Let's Talk Recognition". Eddie Peters, a traditional Torres Strait Islander man will lead our event at Heywood Park on 31 May 10am.
The event will be a mixture of traditional greetings and their cultural significance, interactive music and dance and presentations by local schools.
Should the weather be inclement, the event will be held in the Town Hall  Oxford Terrace off Unley Road, Unley.
All welcome to attend.
