Reconciliation Week at
St Dominic’s College
Our Indigenous students have been working together to construct a range of activities to celebrate National Reconciliation Week 2019 (27th May – 3rd June).
The activities have been designed to develop a stronger understanding of Reconciliation week among staff and students, including significant milestones in the process of Reconciliation.
The theme for 2019 is Grounded in Truth, Walk Together With Courage.
Week Commencing 20 May
Students will be provided with fact sheets outlining the 1967 Referendum and The Mabo Decision. Filled with valuable and informative information, the fact sheets will provide the basis for planned discussion sessions in Homeroom.
A short quiz (10 questions) will be made available on the College Canvas Announcement Page for students to complete. Students who answer each question correctly will be entered into a draw to win the following (prizes pictured):
1st Place: Indigenous All Stars Jersey
2nd Place: Indigenous All Stars Training Shirt
3rd Place: Indigenous All Stars Ball
*Quiz will close Thursday (Recess) and students may complete this either during Homeroom on your direction or within their own time.
Reconciliation Week Projects
Throughout the week Indigenous students will be working on two projects:
- A Reconciliation artwork that signifies the Colleges commitment to Reconciliation (with the assistance of former ‘Old Boy’ Kaylem McDonald and Jacquie Knowles).
- Connection to Country project- Students begin the process of retracing their Indigenous Origins.
College Reconciliation Assembly
The College will hold a Reconciliation Assembly on Friday, 31st May.
These activities have been designed to stimulate conversation and encourage students to further develop their understanding of the significance of the week.
