Reconciliation Walk 2020 - Virtual Choir

Reconciliation Virtual Choir 

Since 2014 Bellambi Public School and local Aboriginal Elders, Uncle Richard Archibald and Aunty Sharralyn Robinson along with the local community have celebrated National Reconciliation Week by hosting the Walk for Reconciliation. This event is usually attended by approx 2000 students, staff and community members. Sadly due to COVID-19 this event is postponed. 

This year we have been innovative and creative to continue to celebrate Reconciliation and connect our students with one another, the staff and Aboriginal Elders.

The 2020 theme for National Reconciliation Week is ‘In this Together’. The Aboriginal Education Team ensured that the focus and importance of reconciliation wasn’t forgotten during this unusual time, here is where the team brought the Reconciliation Virtual Choir Project to life. Inspired by an idea originally from the ABC network, during our Phase 1 return to one face-to-face school day the students and staff have taken part in singing the chorus to ‘I am Australian’ as part of the virtual choir.
