On Friday 2nd June, Nuriootpa Primary School acknowledged the culmination of two week focus of learning about National Sorry Day and Reconciliation Week. The day began with an Acknowledgement of Country and a smoking ceremony, by Luritja Ngaurabana man, Kob Schmaal. The students then participated in a rotation of activities: Traditional games, Story Stones-Witjuti Grub, Making a Yarning Box, and The First Astronomers story and activity.
The Nunga group, students from Reception to year 6, helped plan and assist with the running of activities. I would to thank Daniella, demonstrating the value of being brave, when she stepped up to teach how to make the Yarning Boxes, when her video clip did not work.
The feedback from the students was positive and Brooke and I would like to thank the students and staff for helping to make the day successful.
