National Sorry Day - 29 May

22/05/2015

National Sorry Day is an annual event held on 26 May to acknowledge and recognise members of the Stolen Generations.

We support and understand the significance of Sorry Day and what it means for our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families and the wider Indigenous community.

The Aspley State School Cultural Group have forwarded an invitation to our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and there families to attend a National Sorry Day event at Kalinga Park, Clayfield on Tuesday 26 May. 

Morning tea will be available from 10am and a Sorry Day ceremony will begin at 10:45am. This event is also open to the wider community, giving all Australians the opportunity to recognise and reflect. If you would like to attend this event please RSVP using the information on the National Sorry Day invitation.

The term "Stolen Generations‟ refers to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians who were forcibly removed, as children, from their families and communities by government, welfare or church authorities, and placed into institutional care or with non- Indigenous foster families. The forced removal of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children began as early as the mid- 1800s and continued until 1970.
