Young celebrate ‘Reconciliation’

MORE than 400 students came together to celebrate the first recorded act of reconciliation between Aboriginal people and settlers, as part of a National Reconciliation Week (May 27 to June 3). The primary and high schoolers from 18 local schools enjoyed a range of Aboriginal educational workshops at Prospect Hill, Pemulwuy, at the Cumberland Council organised event. National Reconciliation Week celebrates and builds on the respectful relationships shared by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians.
