Two Wells Primary School celebrated Reconciliation Week last month with a range of activities including the release of 300 red balloons as part of the celebrations.

TWPS counselor, Judy Sanders, said the theme of this year’s reconciliation week was “Let’s Talk Recognition” and the students had been involved in story telling, literacy activities, cooking damper and creating artwork, with the balloon release held on Friday, May 31.

The balloons were tied the students in support of reconciliation. “The students had a wonderful week,” Judy said.

“They’ve been very busy doing lots of activities in the classroom and learnt a lot about different cultural experiences in their curriculum.”

Kaurna Aboriginal elder, Aunty Josie, also visited the school during the week to share her experiences.

Tomato chutney, made with produce from the school’s community garden, was incorporated into the damper-making activity and students also got to try a burger made from kangaroo mince.
