National Reconciliation Week

issue1017-reconciliation-week-thissue1017-reconciliation-week-1

Last week, PLC Sydney students celebrated National Reconciliation Week. National Reconciliation Week marks the anniversaries of two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey; the first is the 50 year anniversary of the 1967 referendum and the second is the 25 year anniversary of the High Court’s landmark Mabo decision which paved the way for Native Title. As part of these celebrations, students were posed the question: ‘What does reconciliation mean to you?’ There were some wonderful responses including ‘Reconciliation means not forgetting the past and changing the future’ and ‘Reconciliation is a time to reflect, connect and say sorry.’  The students' answers were written on hands which will be used to create a mural symbolising reconciliation. 
 
All students also took part in a homeroom challenge quiz answering questions based on Indigenous history, art and culture. The winning homeroom, 9.1, all received an AIME (Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience) hoodie. A big thank you to all staff and students for taking part and especially to Allira Hammond-Purcell (Year 9) and Siale Sabatino (Year 11) for speaking about reconciliation at the school assembly.
