2019 Wangal Walk

Schools across the Diocese participated in a number of events throughout National Reconciliation Week (27 May - 3 June) taking part in Australia’s ongoing journey in achieving reconciliation and unity with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

The Wangal Walk program is designed to engage the students as they journey through the environments utilised by Aboriginal people up to 20,000 years ago. They learned about connection to Country, the natural indicators of Sydney’s six season calendar, life as a saltwater, bitterwater and sweetwater person and the role of Dreaming.
