Beaconhills has launched its third Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) at a special Pakenham Campus event attended by 300 people.
The evening was a huge success with First Nation families and many members of the College community in attendance.
The celebration included a Welcome to Country and Smoking Ceremony with Elder Murrundindi, a special acknowledgment in Woi wurrung language by our Little Beacons children, performances by Djirri Djirri Wurundjeri women’s dance group and Berwick Performing Arts students, stalls and displays and sampling of food and tea made with Australian native ingredients.
All proceeds raised from the night will go Opening the Doors Foundation and VACCA (Victorian Aboriginal Child Care Agency).
This year’s Reconciliation Week theme was ‘Be brave, Make change’. Let us Be Brave and tackle the unfinished business of reconciliation so we can Make Change for the benefit of all Australians.
