Kyogle march to promote reconciliation

MURANDA Goodsell invites the community to join a Reconciliation March in Kyogle on June 17.

Part of NAIDOC Week celebrations, the march is organised by Kyogle Reconciliation Group.

“This is an opportunity for the community to show unity,” Ms Goodsell said.

A publicity officer for the reconciliation group and a youth worker in Kyogle, she said when the community worked together “the outcomes were better for everyone”.

The march begins at The Cenotaph in Memorial Park at 11am and will finish at Anzac Park (netball courts) where a free lunch will be available.

Aboriginal children from local primary schools and students from Kyogle High School have been invited and are encouraged to bring friends to the march to show reconciliation in action, Ms Goodsell said.

There will a jumping castle, live music, face painting, basket weaving, boomerang painting and a hip-hop dance workshop with Kulcha Jam.
