What is National Reconciliation Week?

What is National Reconciliation Week?

Each year National Reconciliation Week celebrates and builds on the respectful relationships shared by ATSI people and other Australians.

The dates that bookend the week are significant milestones in the reconciliation journey.

 

May 27—Marks the anniversary of the 1967 referendum which saw over 90 per cent of Australians vote to give the Commonwealth the power to make laws for ATSI peoples and recognise them in the national census.

3 June—Commemorates the High Court of Australia’s landmark Mabo decision in 1992, which legally recognised that ATSI peoples have a special relationship to the land—a relationship that existed prior to colonalisation and still exists today. This recognition paved the way for land rights or Native Title

The SRC did a wonderful job of raising money for Shave for a Cure on Thursday. They raised $860, enough to see the Captain and Vice Captain lose their locks, along with everyones favourite teachers assistant Mr Sherack.

Well done SRC and Dapto High School for supporting this great cause.

AIME Senior Program Day 

AIME Senior Program Day 

image image On Friday the 6th of May, two of our Dapto High senior ATSI students participated in the AIME Senior Program Day held at the Novotel in Wollongong. The day consisted of a range of interactive, facilitated sessions focusing on year 12 completion and transition/ connection to the next chapter of life. Throughout the sessions, students had the opportunity to have one on one mentoring with an AIME Mentor from the University of Wollongong. The Mentor helped students to discuss and write down their goals for the future and possible career paths they would consider exploring. It was a wonderful fun-filled, positive and inspiring day for all involved as AIME strive to build the idea that Indigenous can mean success. Our senior ATSI students will also be attending part 2 of the AIME Senior Program day on Friday 13th May.​

Also the picture attached will accompany the blurb.

Kind regards,

Natasha Bogovac

I am pleased to announce a new female Indigenous program which began this week at Dapto High, called Sista Speak. Over several years Miss Elizabeth Hodgson has consulted with the local Aboriginal community and local high schools to facilitate a program that addresses Indigenous culture while creating art projects. Each term a different group of Indigenous girls will be given the opportunity to work with Elizabeth. This week the girls produced some amazing Mother’s day cards for their first project.
