Issue 01 29 May


We are so happy to be back!

There was a lot of smiling faces and dancing in the car park when our P-2 children returned to school on Tuesday. It is great to have them back.

Reconciliation Week

National Reconciliation Week is 27 May to 3 June. The theme this year is 'In This Together' while being announced last year, holds special significance now.

Reconciliation Week is marked by two important events in Australia's history. It starts on the anniversary of the 1967 Referendum, and ends on the anniversary of the 1992 High Court decision on the Mabo case. One day acknowledges that Aboriginal and Torres Strait people were in Australia prior to European settlement, the other tells us that Aboriginal and Torres Strait people are still here. The time between those days are an opportunity to think about what these two things mean to us as Australians.
