Grounded in Truth: Walk Together with Courage
Challenging conversations where we consider the truths in Australia's history will need all Australians to walk together with courage. We are celebrating Reconciliation Week with opportunities such as: films, welcoming special visitors, weaving baskets and making badges.
Students acknowledged the significance of this week by making and wearing badges.
The day provides us with an opportunity to deepen our understanding of the values of cultural diversity and the four goals of the UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions adopted on 20 October 2005:
International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Interphobia & Transphobia (IDAHOBIT) was launched in 2004 to celebrate LGBTIQ people across the world.
Today, we celebrate IDAHOBIT on May 17 to promote inclusion, and build a better world for the LGBTIQ community.
It reminds us all to challenge homophobic, biphobic, intersexist, and transphobic language or behaviour if you feel safe to do so.
The United Nations websiteUN Free& Equal explains the ways the UN is demanding justice and protection for all. You can sign up through this website for updates on their progress.
We are learning how to ask questions and use research processes to meet and understand the challenges and opportunities ahead of us.
