Reconciliation Week Major Event - Wednesday 29 May 10am- 10.45am. Unley Town Hall, Oxford Terrace, Unley.
This free event is for all ages, introduced by the Mayor and will be a mixture of traditional greetings, their cultural significance and fun education with Katrina Ngaityalya Power and her family. We have also asked schools attending to prepare presentations on the theme of Reconciliation.
All welcome to attend. This year continues to build upon the work we have done in recent years.We have been actively involved with Reconciliation Week since 2007 and have held many similar events over the years attracting over 150 people each time.
National Sorry Day acknowledges and raises awareness of the history and continued effect of the forced removal of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from their families, communities and culture.
Flying the Indigenous Flags on National Sorry Day and throughout National Reconciliation Week recognises the significance of these events for all Australians and is a sign of respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and culture.
We currently fly both the flags permanently on our poles on Unley Road ( one of the few Councils to do so) and have them on display at the back of the Council Chambers.
