We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land on which we live, work and learn, the Bunurong.
We pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
The Bass Coast Reconciliation Network is currently working on the calendar of events for this year.
Be sure to save the following dates:
NATIONAL SORRY DAY
Thursday 26 May, 11.00am at the Nobbies
We come together on this important day of healing and truth telling to acknowledge and raise awareness of the history and continued effect of the forced removal of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people from their families, communities, and culture.
NATIONAL RECONCILIATION WEEK
27 May to 3 June 2022
The theme, for this year is “Be Brave. Make Change.” This is a challenge to all Australians— individuals, families, communities, organisations,
and government — to Be Brave and tackle the unfinished business of reconciliation so we can Make Change for the benefit of all Australians.
3 to 10 July 2022
With theme of "Get Up, Stand Up, Show Up" is an opportunity to do just that alongside Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Peoples to amplify their voices and narrow the gap between aspiration and reality, good intent and outcome. The NAIDOC Art Exhibition officially opened on 3rd July at the Artspace centre in Wonthaggi.
The Bridge Walk for Reconciliation originally scheduled for Tuesday, 31 May had been postponed and was held during NAIDOC Week on Friday, 15 July.
