Don’t bring your lunch on Monday 29 May…
Instead, get over to the Ulumbarra Plaza as BSSC kicks off Reconciliation Week with a free BBQ lunch for all students and staff. You can even try some barbecued kangaroo.
On Tuesday evening (30 May), bring your beanbag, comfy chair or favourite rug to the BSSC Karrang Kunga (Language) Centre at 6.30pm for a special Reconciliation Week free-screening of ‘Bran Nue Dae’ starring Geoffrey Rush, Jessica Mauboy, Missy Higgins and Ernie Dingo. Free snacks, great company, and a feel-good film like no other—this is an event not to be missed.
This year’s Reconciliation Week theme, ‘Let’s Take the Next Steps’, acknowledges that it has been 50 years since the 1967 referendum and 25 years since the historic Mabo decision. But Reconciliation Week is not just a reminder that change takes persistence and courage, it is also an invitation for all Australians to be a part of the next big steps in our nation’s reconciliation journey.
The Indigenous flags in the college plaza flew at half-mast on Friday in recognition of National Sorry Day.
