National Reconciliation Week
National Reconciliation Week – 27 May to 3 June – 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. For the first time, Prescott Primary Northern attended the National Reconciliation Week Breakfast at the Adelaide Convention Centre on Friday 26th May. Our two school captains, Harleen and Savya accompanied Mrs Daian, Mr Allen and representatives from Prescott College and our southern school to be immersed in the event that encourages all Australians to be a voice for reconciliation in tangible ways in our everyday lives – where we live, work and socialise.
On Monday we were fortunate to have Aunty Michelle, a grandparent of one of our students come and share about Reconciliation Week in our assembly. Students have been involved in recognising National Sorry Day by creating a wall of paper craft desert roses to pay their respects to the members of the Stolen Generation as well as various activities planned by their teachers in their classrooms.
