May 22, 2018

national-reconciliation-week-2018

TAFE SA will be hosting a range of activities across the state as part of National Reconciliation Week 2018 (27 May-3 June), commencing at Regency Campus on Monday 28 May 2018.

Our speakers are in keeping with this year’s NRW18 theme - Don’t Keep History a Mystery – and will include presentations from Aboriginal staff and students and South Australian Aboriginal Sports Training Academy graduates. A BBQ lunch and Smoking Ceremony also a part of the day’s activities.

We invite all TAFE SA students to Learn, Share and Grow – by exploring our past, learning more about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures, and developing a deeper understanding of our national story.  We encourage all TAFE SA staff and students to get involved in a range of events, which are being held across our campuses and in the community, during National Reconciliation Week and to take the opportunity to learn more about Aboriginal history, culture and reconciliation.

We encourage our staff and students to share photos from the week by tagging @tafesa and using the hashtag #nrw18.
