Kirrip Aboriginal Corporation and Hope Street came together on Saturday 27 May 2017 to celebrate National Reconciliation Week with the community.
National Reconciliation Week occurs every 27 May – 03 June and commemorates two important milestones in Australia's reconciliation journey: the 1967 referendum and the High Court Mabo decision. It is also an opportunity for everyone to learn more about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history and culture.
The morning began at Hope Street in Melton with a Welcome to Country, flag raising ceremony and speeches. A delicious lunch was then enjoyed by everyone at Kirrip House in Melton South.
