National Reconciliation Week 2023



Keep up the momentum for change: the theme for National Reconciliation Week 2023 is Be a Voice for Generations.

The theme  encourages all Australians to be a voice for reconciliation in tangible ways in our everyday lives – where we livework and socialise.

For the work of generations past, and the benefit of generations future, act today for a more just, equitable and reconciled country for all.

National Reconciliation Week – 27 May to 3 June – is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.

Be proud, read aloud!

“There’s a simple, easy way to help your children learn – read aloud to them every day.

International Dance Day

Lindy hop, jitterbug, freestyle, tango, ballet, and more, the art of grooving and swaying our bodies is celebrated on International Dance Day on April 29.

Dancing is universal — woven into virtually every society all over the world. Humans simply love dance. It brings us together whether we are the ones on the dance floor or are watching the performance of others. Dancing is exhilarating and impressive. Let’s honor the world of dance today, together!

So put your dancing shoes on and get ready to wiggle and giggle together!
