On Thursday 23 May 2024, 14 of our Aboriginal learners participated in the North Eastern Nunga Tag carnival at Avenues College. This has become a very popular event with hundreds of students coming together for a fun-filled day of friendly competition and connection with culture. 🏉🎉

The students enjoyed the opportunity to connect with students from other schools and members of the community. They visited health, social, and employment stalls and were treated to a BBQ lunch. 🏫🤝🍔

It was a fantastic event and our students displayed unity, resilience, and teamwork throughout the day. 💪🤝👏

A SPECIAL REPORT: National Reconciliation Week ⚫️🔴🟡
📅 National Reconciliation Week (NRW) runs annually from 27 May – 3 June. These dates mark two milestones in Australia’s reconciliation journey: The 1967 referendum and the historic Mabo decision, respectively. These were significant steps towards equality and recognition of Indigenous rights, helping to correct years of injustice and discrimination.
📢 During Reconciliation Week, BPIHS is providing a range of activities to promote the theme for 2024 Now More Than Ever, as a reminder that the fight for justice and the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people needs to continue. As supporters of reconciliation, we stand up to defend and uphold the rights of First Nations peoples, to call out racism wherever we encounter it, and we actively reinforce the voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across this continent.
🙏 We are grateful for our PIRKU team who are hosting some fantastic activities during the week supporting the BPIHS values of unity, connection, respect, and reconciliation. 🌟 Wednesday is the highlight of the week including a Wear it Yellow Day! 🟡 Students and Staff are encouraged to wear yellow tops and accessories along with their school uniform. 🟡 There will also be a sausage sizzle 🌭, with gold coin donations supporting First Nations children and families via the Childrens Ground Organisation.
📸 We cant wait to share the highlights of the week with you!

A SPECIAL REPORT: Celebrating IDAHOBIT 🏳️‍🌈

Parents and caregivers have an ability to shape young people’s attitudes and beliefs, embedding values of acceptance, inclusivity, and respect for all.

The International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersexism, and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT), celebrated each year on May 17th, emphasizes the critical need to educate about diversity and inclusivity. Established in 2004, this day is a global call to promote tolerance and combat discrimination against the LGBTQIA+ community.

Instilling respect and acceptance for people of all sexual orientations and gender identities in young people is crucial. Celebrating IDAHOBIT helps families communicate a strong stance against discrimination, highlighting the importance of diversity and the damaging effects of stereotypes and biases. These prejudices often arise from the media, societal interactions, and peer influences meaning that proactive efforts from parents and caregivers are important to counteract and discuss these issues.

Creating inclusive environments supports diversity and plays a vital role in raising awareness and demonstrating solidarity with LGBTQIA+ students and community members. It is a commitment to creating a world free from prejudice and discrimination, instilling values of empathy, respect, and inclusivity.

📹 This video included in this Special Report will help foster acceptance and empower us to become compassionate and informed advocates for equality.

We hope you take time to reflect on the information offered in this Special Report, and as always, we welcome your feedback.

If you do have any concerns about the wellbeing of your child, please contact the school for further information or seek medical or professional help.
