Over the past week, the School has celebrated National Reconciliation Week and the theme 'More Than a Word'.
At our Knox Prep campus, our students celebrated with a smoking ceremony and a visit by some of our Senior School indigenous students.
Former Prep student Charlie Anderson (Year 11) led an Acknowledgement of Country, with dance performances by the Senior School boys. The Prep boys had the opportunity to participate in a 'Djuralai' dance, which depicts four native animals.
At the Senior School assembly, Biripi and Gadigal woman Charlene Davison, CEO of the GO Foundation, shared her story, reflecting on the meaning of Reconciliation and the intent of the Uluru Statement from the Heart.
The assembly also featured dancing by our indigenous students and a powerful Acknowledgement Country led by Ngemba and Gamilaraay descendent Kyh Samuelsson (Year 12).
"The theme of reconciliation week this year is ‘more than a word’. Reconciliation Week is a movement; it is the time for all Australians, regardless of skin colour, to learn and get a better understanding of our country's cultural history, which will allow us to reconcile, come together and make the change that desperately needs to be made."
— Kyh Samuelsson
