Reconciliation is about building better relationships between the wider Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples for the benefit of all Australians.

To create positive change we need more people talking about the issues and coming up with innovative ideas and actions that make a difference.

Our staff and students attended the flag raising ceremony at the Campaspe Shire Offices.  Njernda Aboriginal Corporation’s Pastor Joe Day then gave a heartfelt speech on the meaning of reconciliation and the day’s symbolism.  ‘‘I’d like to think as we raise the flag today, we raise the standard in ourselves,’’ he said.  Students are pictured with Pastor Joe Day.
