Sorry Day


It took several Australian government administrations coming and going before an apology was officially offered to the Indigenous Australians, but it finally was made official, and actions are still being undertaken to this day to repair the damage caused by tearing native families apart. Our students considered the importance of this nationally important day and expressed their appreciation and understanding through art and literature. While learning about Sorry Day, students in 4A made hands with an image of the Aboriginal flag on them to represent all of us working together towards a better world for everyone.

In 5D the students read the story 'Sorry Day' by Carol Voss. They discussed the themes of the text and the importance of sorry day. The students’ teacher Chris Cook, said that there ‘ was a clear enthusiasm for the book and the discussion the students had.’
