Report of Apology Day Event
Evan a wet miserable day could not dampen
the enthusiasm of the teachers, parents and pupils of Kingswood Park Public School
when it came to celebrating Apology day.
NSW Delegates Mary and Lily of the Stolen
Generations Alliance accompanied by the NSW Patron Valerie Linow went along to celebrate the day with the 260+ children assembled
there to hear and relive the celebration of the Apology.
We were greeted at the gate by the children
and ushered into the recreation hall where Mary introduced us to the children. The principle Mr Abby asked the children some
question on the Apology and then the footage of the Prime Minister giving was shown.
Mary then introduced Auntie Val who gave
a talk on her own experiences of being one of the Stolen Generations, children
gave a warm response to her and Mary, not only for their interaction with them but also for the unique and colorful Koori
clothes they were both wearing.
We then went on to have sausage sizzle,
cake and drinks for the whole school with everyone, enjoying the day and asking us back again for next year
