Central Regional TAFE recognises 10th Anniversary of The National Apology

Students and staff came together at the Central Regional TAFE Geraldton campus on Tuesday 13 February to acknowledge the tenth anniversary of The National Apology.

Ten years ago, on this day, the nation stopped to watch Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, apologise to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people for the Stolen Generation.

Staff from the Aboriginal Learning Centre hosted the event that consisted of an informative display, the playing of Kevin Rudd’s apology speech on a big screen and a barbeque.

Central Regional TAFE Managing Director Bill Swetman said it was pleasing that so many staff and students come together to recognise the anniversary.

 “It is so important that we acknowledge the past and the Aboriginal Learning Centre staff have done a wonderful job coordinating this event to commemorate the tenth anniversary of The National Apology,” Mr Swetman said.
