To acknowledge this year’s NAIDOC Week, the Greater Shepparton Lighthouse Project is inviting local schools and community groups to join us for the ‘Messages for the Elders’ community project.
We’ve designed a range of postcards so our community can share their thoughts, knowledge and respect for the Elders of Yorta Yorta Country. Participants are encouraged to write about First Nations culture, books or artwork, or simply to share some kind words or write about why respect for our Elders is important.
Completed postcards will be tied together to form a bunting which will be displayed for the ELDERS at various events and venues during and after NAIDOC Week.
This project has been developed as part of the Greater Shepparton Lighthouse Project’s Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). We are committed to reconciliation and acknowledge that it provides a powerful opportunity for the community to learn, grow and heal, which is critical if our young people are to reach their full potential and thrive. This project has been designed in consultation with the community and approval has been given for the use of the NAIDOC logo.
