EDUCATION Where reconciliation starts
Lewis Parter performed at Connells Point Public School on Tuesday 21st June, 2011. He was born in Bowen, North Queensland. His language was that of the Birri Gubba and his heritage is of the central Queensland Daranbal people. Mr Parter states "My heart is for my people and a better understanding of my people. I believe my presentation allows for what I call a "soft" approach to Reconciliation."




Below are some comments from our Kindergarten students.
