On Monday the 28th May 2018, 12 students from years 3-6, participated in the Reconciliation School Flag Walk held by Shellharbour City Council. The Reconciliation School Flag Walk is an annual event, which celebrates National Reconciliation Week across Australia. The event focuses on engaging students with Aboriginal Elders and the wider community.
Students met at Beverley Whitfield Ocean Pool at 10am, and proceeded to walk to Little Park.
This year's flag bearer proudly held the Aboriginal Flag and led us down the pathway, alongside many other schools within the Shellharbour community.
