Gympie Central students took part in a number of activities, including cultural learnings, sharing of poems, songs and Dreamtime stories.
Students created a Sea of Hands to signify the people’s movement for reconciliation.
The first Sea of hands was created as a powerful, physical representation of the citizen’s statement on native title in 1997. It was recognised as the largest public art installation in Australia at the time.
Students enjoyed taking part in these activities and appreciated the importance of Reconciliation Week.
