National Reconciliation Week 2018

As Jon Black, our Managing Director said earlier this week, no matter where you are in NSW, you are on the traditional lands of an Aboriginal nation. We pay respect and acknowledge all the traditional custodians of the lands where TAFE NSW stands.

Our library network is a valuable resource for our indigenous and Australian history students with local cultural information available statewide. The collections include language maps, historical documents, stories, films and online sources.
Hunter Street Library celebrated National Reconciliation Week on Awabakal land with a cuppa, delicious treats and a treasure hunt to highlight our Australian collections. We learn so much from our ATSI Cultural Arts teachers and students while they explore culture and develop their art practice.

Visual Arts student “Megan” won our lucky number prize! Congratulations to our prize winners, and thanks for sharing Reconciliation Week with us.
