Giant paper chain commemorates National Reconciliation Week

Students and staff showing off the National Reconciliation Week chain

Students at Warnervale’s Lakes Anglican Grammar School created a giant paper chain to commemorate National Reconciliation Week.

The person shaped chain was made by students from Kindergarten through to Year 12, reflecting the theme of this year’s National Reconciliation Week – ‘In this together’.

Students decorated the chain with art and messages of solidarity with First Nations People, with the unveiling the culmination of the school’s National Reconciliation Week activities.

Head of Junior School, Will Wallace, said the theme shows students how people with Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander ancestry, as well as all other ancestries, can journey together to listen and learn from one another and grow a stronger understanding of Australia’s history and its impact on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples both past and present.

“It’s also a reminder for us all to be involved in reconciliation so that all Australians can live in a better place and belong to a community which cares about and looks out for each other,” Wallace said.
