On Monday last week at the Principal Leadership Forum, each school received a beautiful
canvas of the Uluru Statement from the Heart. The Uluru Statement from the Heart is an
invitation to the Australian people. First Nations People ask Australians to accept their
invitation to walk with them in a movement of the Australian people for a better future.
First Nations People call for the establishment of a First Nations Voice enshrined in the
Constitution and a Makarrata Commission to supervise a process of agreement-making and
truth-telling about our history. This statement has been publicly endorsed by Archbishop
Mark Coleridge. The new government has also said that it will fully endorse the Uluru
Statement from the Heart. This canvas was presented to the school community today as we
continue to celebrate National Reconciliation Week.
