Lakes Grammar recognises this important week in our nation’s public life. On Monday, National Sorry Day, we held our annual Aboriginal Culture Day. A visiting Aboriginal speaker met with Year 7 students, discussed Aboriginal culture, demonstrated some traditional tools and taught the students a dance.
At assemblies this week we are making an Acknowledgement of Country. This acknowledges that our school occupies land which forms the spiritual and cultural home of the Darkinjung people, their “Country”. The acknowledgement to be read is as follows: I would like to acknowledge the Darkinjung people who are the traditional custodians of the land on which our school stands. I would also like to pay respect to Elders both past and present of the Darkinjung nation and extend that respect to other Aboriginal people present.
Thank you Raymond Kelly for visiting our school and helping our students have an appreciation of the Australian Aboriginal culture and the significance of National Sorry Day.
Today's launch of our KidsMatter Program was a fantastic day for K-6 students. The day started with the official Launch of our KidsMatter initiative, including a skit by a small group of very brave teachers, two of which were in dress up. This was then followed by the making of a finger print tree, friendship bands and dream flags.
The highlight of the day was most certainly the wonderful smiley face created by our students and parents on the oval in recognition of our program motto "Every Face Has A Place". The implementation of this program in our Junior School builds on all the wonderful things we already do as a school around student wellbeing.
