10th Anniversary of National Apology Event at Kooly

Today is the 10th Anniversary of the National Apology to the Stolen Generation and Indigenous people of Australia.

Today we got together with our community at Kooly to reflect on the significance of this apology.

Thank you to everyone who came along today to support one another and share your stories.

We would like to especially thank Uncle Greg for his Welcome to Country, Uncle Wes for performing a smoking ceremony, Walan Mahlee for their performances and John for sharing his story about his experiences of the Stolen Generation.

Below you can find these highlights from the day:
