National Reconciliation Week 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. Reconciliation Week is 27 May to 3 June every year. During this time students, staff commemorated two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey – the successful 1967 referendum and the High Court Mabo decision. They read Indigenous stories, investigate the local Dahrug and Garingai languages and had yarns about the significance of the week but also paying respects to past and present and future Traditional Indigenous Custodians.
