Jabiru supports National Reconciliation Week

14 June 2022

On Friday, 27 May, the Jabiru community came together in strong support of 2022 National Reconciliation Week #NRW.
Thank you to Traditional Owner Corben Mudjandi for delivering the Welcome to Country to begin a wonderful morning put together through a collaboration with West Arnhem Regional Council, Sodexo, Arnhem Land Progress and Community Care.
The Jabiru Childcare Centre also enjoyed a special storytime by Marcia Brennan who read 'Sharing' by Aunty Fay Muir and Sue Lawson.
Marcia also read out local bininj words for the young people to practice and learn.
Let’s all continue to stand together to ‘be brave, create change’.
The dates for National Reconciliation Week are the same each year 27 May – 3 June.
These dates commemorate two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey – the successful 1967 referendum and the High Court Mabo decision respectively.
