On May 25th , we were proud to take part in the National Reconciliation Week Virtual Breakfast hosted by Reconciliation WA. The event, hosted by Dianella Secondary College, showcased the culinary talents of the Dookerniny Garbala Cooking Class from the Secondary College who used native ingredients such as lemon myrtle, wattle seed and finger limes to create a fantastic menu. A performance from students at the Secondary College was a wonderful opening before guests turned to the screens to watch the virtual presentations from Reconciliation WA.
National Reconciliation Week (NRW) provides an opportunity for Australians to discover and appreciate our shared histories, cultures, and accomplishments. It encourages individuals to contemplate their role in fostering reconciliation in Australia. NRW takes place from 27 May to 3 June, marking two crucial milestones in the reconciliation process: the significant 1967 referendum and the influential High Court Mabo decision. As we progress, reconciliation should become ingrained in the thoughts, sentiments, and deeds of all Australians, building a nation fortified by respectful connections between the broader Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
