National Reconciliation Day 2024


A National Reconciliation Week message from a Year 7 student

As part of the 2024 National Reconciliation Week celebrations, Bemin Secondary College embarked on a heartfelt journey of solidarity and understanding through the power of art and empathy. Students and staff came together to create beautiful displays of unity at each campus, emphasising this year's theme of Now More Than Ever.


In the spirit of this significant week, our Year 10 students created an Indigenous flag adorned handprints in the iconic red, yellow and black, with each hand representing a commitment to reconciliation, understanding, and respect for Indigenous cultures and histories. Every handprint symbolised a pledge to walk hand in hand towards reconciliation, acknowledging the past, and working towards a harmonious future.

At our Everton Road campus, heartfelt messages of support and encouragement adorned a Now More Than Ever display in the junior school library, serving as a poignant reminder of the collective responsibility to honour and amplify Indigenous voices. Students penned down their thoughts, expressing their commitment to reconciliation and their determination to contribute positively to the journey ahead.


Year 7 'Now More Than Ever' Reconciliation Messages

National Reconciliation Week provides us with a vital opportunity to reflect on our shared history and commit to building stronger relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous Australians. We continue to strive to foster a culture of mutual respect, understanding, and inclusivity within our school community."


As the week draws to a close, the spirit of reconciliation will continue to resonate within each campus at Bemin Secondary College, inspiring ongoing conversations, actions, and efforts towards a more just and equitable society.
