Our Reconciliation Week ceremony was very moving. Student’s reflected on what they had learned about reconciliation, we raised the Aboriginal flag and collaboratively worked on a whole school display. All students have placed a hand with their names on our flag to demonstrate our commitment to respecting the traditional custodians of the land!
