Harmony Week Community Gathering
Posted on 04 Apr 2022
Our Community Gathering was a big success. Seeing everyone make connections, sharing craft and warming up with coffee was a fantastic way to re-engage. The Smoking Ceremony led by Wiradjuri Echoes was a powerful way to cleanse and start anew. Our Year 2 leaders worked alongside Elder Duncan Smith OAM and his daughter Jakida in our Reconciliation Courtyard – they handed over custodianship of this significant place and championed us to get smarter about traditional ways of knowing and being. We are hopeful that this learning over time will create ceremony, interconnectedness and deep understanding across our community.
Thanks to all of the families and educators that made the extra efforts come along to play – we are grateful for the time shared together.
