Close the Gap Day

Thursday, March 21, 2019


National Close the Gap Day is an annual awareness-raising event that aims to close the health and life expectancy gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities in Australia. Today at lunchtime students and teachers showed their support for Close the Gap day by reflecting on what Australia has done for them and what they will do for Australia in return. Reflecting on the blessings we have received from Australia and being aware that we all have a part to play in making Australia a better place for everyone, especially Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, is a worthwhile and necessary activity and one we should not limit just to Close the Gap Day.
