Schools can play an important role during National Reconciliation Week.

Book-ended by two significant dates, it's an event that all Australians can be proud of – the anniversaries of the successful 1967 Referendum and the High Court Mabo land rights decision.

 Talking with students about the significance of this annual event is a great place to start. If you’re a teacher we’ve got some resources that can help.
