National Sorry Day
Today is Nation Sorry Day.
It is a day for acknowledging the trauma and loss that continues to affect Indigenous communities, families and individuals, as a result of the wrongs done to Australia's First Nation's People.
Minimbah held their Reconciliation Week Assembly this morning, and we had Uncle Shane Clayton and his children, Lakeisha and Shane Jr from the Bunarong Land Council, welcome us onto country.
Woodleigh parent Brian Walker also spoke, sharing stories of his family's experience of the Stolen Generations.
National Reconciliation Week starts tomorrow, following the theme, Be Brave. Make Change. We look forward to sharing our reconciliation efforts throughout the coming week and at the Reconciliation Week Gathering next Wednesday, where we will launch Woodleigh's Reconciliation Action Plan.
