Understanding the Importance of Reconciliation
This year’s theme, “Grounded in Truth: Walk Together with Courage”.
During National Reconciliation Week 27th May – 31st May, all Australians are invited to learn more about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and histories, to share that knowledge and help us grow as a nation.
Ardtornish Primary School celebrated Reconciliation Week during week five. Many classes undertook their own activities to assist students to reflect on the meaning of the week and to acknowledge the way that all Australians need to work to continue to reconcile and come together in friendship.
The SRC Executives held some fun and educational activities in the library, which a number of children in the school attended. The activities highlighted the message of the week - Grounded in Truth, Walking Together in Courage. A sample was the head, heart and hand activities, we gave people paper hands to colour in and then write about how they would like to change or shape Australia’s future for the better.
On Thursday we had a special guest visit the school, Zena Buckskin, a Pre-Service teacher at Ardtornish at the moment. We would like to thank Zena for contributing her time to share with students the significance of Reconciliation Week and why it’s so important to her and how it supports aboriginal culture and history.
We would also like to thank all of the SRC executives for giving their play time to help and guide students in the library with the reconciliation activities this week. Tyson N & Asha D

The Parenting SA seminar ‘The secrets of raising beautifully behaved children’ which was presented by Jodie Benveniste on 22 May can now be viewed at https://youtu.be/wBYLdtTXj04 The seminar will be screened at the centre on Friday 31 May from 9am.
Following the success of the DIY wax wrap and biodegradable house cleaner workshop, we are thinking of having a similar session on fermented foods. Stuff we do not eat as commonly as our ancestors (I doubt wine counts) that grow healthy gut bacteria. If you are interested in knowing or sharing what you know about kombucha, olives, sauerkraut or yogurt, for example and doing some experimenting - keep your eyes on our noticeboards and Facebook page and call 82649828.
