The 13th day of February is National Apology Day which marks the anniversary of the apology speech made by Kevin Rudd MP to the Indigenous peoples of Australia for the past mistreatment by successive Parliaments and Governments.
The Apology anniversary theme for 2016 is Heal our Past, Build our Future, Celebrating our Heroes. It highlights the importance of recognising and sharing the experiences of our Stolen Generations members and those in our communities who make a difference. Our Stolen Generations heroes and their experiences are unique to each region around Australia.
WE WILL HOLD A COMMEMORATIVE CEREMONY AT 3.00PM IN THE MPR THIS FRIDAY 19TH FEB
