JUNE 2 - RECONCILIATION WEEK
Yesterday Lachie, Sophie and 1200 other students from local schools went for a walk around our amazing Blue Lake.
Our schools's students walked from the school up to the lake, others came by bus. We listened to a local aboriginal elder, the flag was raised then we began our walk.
This walk took a while as for some areas it was single file.
Children planted hands they had decorated.
Banners were judged and Sophie's class was a runner-up.
The weather was beautiful and we all had a lovely morning, it really is exhausting work keeping up the spirits of children that didn't want to walk the 5km but everyone made it and were happy to be back at school for a rest.
