Students at Brunswick Junction Primary School have commemorated National Reconciliation Week with a few colourful additions to the school.

The young learners took part in an art activity on June 2 as part of a week of exercises, painting pictures on blank tiles to show their understanding of reconciliation.

All students had discussions about their role in achieving reconciliation during the week and learnt about Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians’ shared histories, cultures and achievements.

The art activity was supported by paints and ceramic tiles supplied by Bunnings Warehouse Australind.

Principal Lauren English said it was great for students to build relationships with the wider community and learn more about reconciliation.

“We all look forward to displaying students’ representations of reconciliation around the school,” she said.

National Reconciliation Week, held between May 27 and June 3, marks the anniversaries of the 1967 Indigenous recognition referendum and the handing down of the Mabo decision in 1992.
