NAIDOC Day and Reconciliation Week
It is that time of the year where we celebrate NAIDOC Week, an emphasis on the Indigenous cultures of our country. This year’s theme is ‘Voice. Treaty. Truth. Let’s work together for a shared future’.
Please join with us on Wednesday, 3rd July as we celebrate with a combined Chapel to be held at 9:30am followed by morning tea for elders and community members.
Activities for students include: Face painting, Indigenous games, damper- making and various craft activities.
MAC also recently celebrated Reconciliation Week, with their first ever Sorry Day Chapel, with Torres Strait Islander Dancers and a special flag raising ceremony.
Special guest speaker, Joan Quinlan shared her families experiences dealing with the Stolen Generation and the effect that it had on her family and the Community as a whole.
Her message was, while it is important to remember the past we also need to move forward together. This message and challenge, which was given to her by her Nan, was passed onto the student body.
