Spearwood Primary School celebrated with in-class activities yesterday under the theme of:
“More than a Word. Reconciliation takes action”
Reconciliation Australia’s theme for 2021, urges the reconciliation movement towards braver and more impactful action.
Reconciliation is a journey for all Australians – as individuals, families, communities, organisations and importantly as a nation. At the heart of this journey are relationships between the broader Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Students from Pre-Primary to Year Six rotated around three activities designed and led by the Cultural Committee. After a delicious morning tea supplied by the P & C and Cultural Committee using Bush Tucker ingredients, the students were broken into their faction groups so the older children could help and work with the younger children.
The factions rotated around so all children did: Hand Prints on the log in the Nature play area, Face Mask painting and Traditional Stories and Designs colouring in. Thank you to our very proactive Cultural Committee for this special day.
The Cultural Committee is driving our School Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). This committee are also working to enhance the learning opportunities of students in Aboriginal Cultural education.
