This year National Sorry Day kicks off our Reconciliation Week celebrations, giving us the opportunity to keep raising the awareness of Aboriginal history and culture.

National Sorry Day - 26 May

National Sorry Day is an opportunity for Australians to celebrate the monumental act of Acknowledgement and Apology by Prime Minister Kevin Rudd that took place on 13 February 2008. More information and suggestions on how schools and families can get involved are available on the National Sorry Day Website.

Reconciliation Week - 27 May - 3 June

Each year National Reconciliation Week celebrates the rich culture and history of the first Australians.

This year's theme is See the person, not the stereotype'.

It's the ideal time for all of us to join the reconciliation conversation and to think about how we can help turn around the disadvantage experienced by many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
