​Last Saturday was National Sorry Day, a day to remember and commemorate Australia's mistreatment of its First Nations–our Indigenous peoples.

Our class made a combined artwork using handprints we designed using the colours of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander flags and symbols we found in paintings online to tell stories. Our individual SORRY artworks are on display this week in the office.

Sorry Day marked the beginning of National Reconciliation Week, which started 22 years ago. It was created to celebrate our Indigenous culture and history. First held on 27 May 1996, it 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.
