Katherine High School students have gathered at lunchtime to share a meal and hear an address in recognition of Reconciliation Week which started on Wednesday 27 May, 2020. There were signs and banners on display made by students to communicate messages about the day.
Year 9 students Lathen Anderson said, “To have a day like this at school makes all the Torres Strait island and Aboriginal community think about themselves and the stolen generation so I feel good today.”
Teacher Kaltie Tabuai spoke about the development of the tradition, “We’ve expanded our Reconciliation Day event significantly this year, and we hope going forward the kids themselves will take more control over it and lead the day.”
The students formed a large circle to symbolise unity during the address which was delivered by Mr. Tabuai.
