Wenona celebrated National Reconciliation Week at Assembly, welcoming Ms Susan Moylan-Coombs who shared the importance of taking personal action in Australia's reconciliation journey. 

After the Acknowledgement of Country, Brooklyn Doomadgee of Year 10 introduced Ms Moylan-Coombs who highlighted the 2016 theme of 'Our History, Our Story, Our Future'. As per the Reconciliation Australia website

  • 'Our History' reminds us all, that historical acceptance is essential to our reconciliation journey.
  • 'Our Story' reflects the fact that the journey towards reconciliation forms a significant part of Australia's story, as do the stories of both trauma and triumph told by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
  • 'Our Future' reinforces that reconciliation must live in the hearts, minds and actions of all Australians as we move forward, in the knowledge we believe in fairness for everyone, that our diversity makes us richer, and that together, we are stronger.
