This piece was a collaboration created by year 8-10 students at Coffs Harbour Learning Centre. CHLC is a School for Specific Purposes (behavior and emotional challenges). The piece represents our opportunity to contribute to an important story that is being written now- our story! The story of how we can face and overcome any challenges by working together, and change the narrative for young people in our community. The artwork has inspired a new uniform for our school- one that the students have ownership in, and will be proud to wear.
Reconciliation is acknowledging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the First Peoples and custodians of this amazing land. Reconciliation recognizes that these people were removed from country, oppressed and treated cruelly and unfairly as a result of colonisation. Reconciliation promotes the strengthening of relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous peoples.
