National Reconciliation Week 2023
27 MAY TO 3 JUNE
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 live, work 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!
Toast for Kids Charity Inc. has furthered its efforts to foster a culture of reading aloud everyday to children by partnering with radio ARN – Tasmania from 1st May to promote the message:
“There’s a simple, easy way to help your children learn – read aloud to them every day. Studies have shown that reading aloud can help your child develop language skills, learn more, and enjoy reading. By reading aloud every day, you will be investing in their future. So be proud, read aloud! An initiative of Toast for Kids Charity and the Help Babies Learn project. For more information, head to the Toast for Kids Facebook Page.”
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!
