Students from Our Lady of the Way Primary in Emu Plains participated in a powerful ‘stand up’ event for National Sorry Day on Thursday 26 May, in a show of solidarity with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Students and teachers gathered on the stairs and verandah of their school building, leaving a large gap to symbolise the gap between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous Australians that still needs to be bridged, as outlined in the Bringing Them Home report.

Our Lady of the Way’s Acting Religious Education coordinator Celia Carroll said this event was a way for the school community to commemorate the importance of National Sorry Day and to recognise that more needs to be done to close the gap.
