Saltwater, Freshwater and Land symbols have been included in each student portal. The art symbols used were provided by Bibi Barba, a local Aboriginal artist who authentically connected the students to Country.
Reconciliation is important to all of us in 5S. It is about two different lifestyles coming together and including everyone. It is about recognising that the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island peoples are the traditional owners of the land, and that their knowledge of the land must be acknowledged and respected. We must listen to each other, respect each other’s opinions, and learn from each other. Together, we must look after Australia, this wonderful country we call home and share the stories of all Australians – Indigenous, descendants of the first settlers and the migrants from many countries, who now live here.
