Sunshine Coast Grammar School’s Reciliation in Action

Sunshine Coast Grammar School community gathered together today to commemorate National Reconciliation Week at our annual Sorry Day Assembly, reflecting on the school’s Reconciliation Action Plan and recognising our First Nation Ambassadors.

Our First Nation’s Ambassadors, Lucas Brodrick and Alinta Tabuai were recognised for their commitment and leadership in our community and were proudly presented with Indigenous Scholarships by Presbyterian Methodist Schools Association (PMSA) Executive Director, Alan Swanson and Principal, Mrs Anna Owen.

Both students are committed to working with the school’s Reconciliation Action Plan Committee to promote reconciliation in all areas of the school and wider community and continue to promote the reconciliation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

To commemorate Sorry Day and National Reconciliation Week, our Ambassadors presented native bee hives to be placed in our Wunya Garden, a visual sign of our commitment to working towards a future of restoring and respecting culture and love of country.

During National Reconciliation Week, students have been learning about the meaning of Sorry Day and discussing reconciliation. Students have also created bracelets to share with friends and family, representing the school’s united approach to reconciliation and how we can come together as a community to enact change.

Sunshine Coast Grammar School was proud to unveil a new art piece last year commissioned by local artist and Bundjalung Country Woman, Amelia Rose. The art piece is a reflection on what is important in our Grammar community and captures our unique landscape and strong connections to community and country. The art piece continues to be a source of pride for our community, with the artwork being integrated proudly across various sporting uniforms.
