Past: Stolen Generation and Reconciliation

On Wednesday we delved into our past exploring the Stolen Generation and Reconciliation before venturing into the city for an excursion to the National Gallery of Victoria: Ian Potter Centre. In the morning we created our own societies and then simulated what it might be like being moved without warning to new societies where everything is different. Then, after some really excellent debates, we examined the policies of Australia’s major political parties before electing a new Government and giving its maiden speech on Indigenous policy.

In the afternoon we caught the tram to Federation Square where we visited the Ian Potter Centre and explored the topic of identity through art. Some really impressive observations were made and everyone had a good time finding works that meant something to them. Well done everyone!
