National Sorry Day is a day of observance and healing for those impacted by the Stolen Generations. It is held on the 26th of May to allow for all Australians to acknowledge and recognise the impact of the forcible removal of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children from their family and community. This forcible removal of children happened over a period of 150 years.

Following the Bringing Them Home Commission report tabled in Federal Parliament on the 26th of May 1997, the first National Sorry Day was held in 1998. Since then National Sorry Day has been celebrated each year, which is a positive step towards our healing journey.  

This week the Jarjums continued to make cardboard Hands for our Sea of Hands that we displayed throughout the school.  The Sea of Hands symbolise community support for reconciliation, rights and respect. The Hands are the colours of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander flags and each Hand carries a signature of the individual that made their Hand.
