Celebrate National Reconciliation Week

5635 schools and early learning services have added this Action to their RAP.

Celebrate National Reconciliation Week (NRW) from 27 May to 3 June each year. NRW is a time to celebrate and build on the respectful relationships shared by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and the wider community. Talk about reconciliation in the classroom and staffroom, host and attend events and activities for everyone in your school or early learning service community.

National Reconciliation Week (NRW) is a great opportunity to organise an event and attend local, public events. Celebrating NRW is a way of building community understanding and pride in reconciliation. 

NRW is held from 27 May to 3 June each year, when all Australians can:

  • reflect on our shared histories, cultures and achievements 
  • explore how we can join the national reconciliation journey.

Reconciliation Australia develops a different theme for NRW each year. National Sorry Day is on 26 May, the day before NRW. The week then starts and ends with two important dates:

  • 27 May – in 1967, 90% of Australians voted ‘yes’ in a referendum, giving the Australian Government power to make laws for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and count them in the census.
  • 3 June – in 1992, the Australian High Court delivered the Mabo decision, recognising Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s special relationship with the land. This paved the way for land rights and Native Title.
