Educate your students about the importance of National Sorry Day with this informative PowerPoint presentation.

What is National Sorry Day?

National Sorry Day is an annual day of remembrance held on 26 May. The purpose of the day is to recognise and reflect upon the mistreatment of the First Nations peoples of Australia since the arrival of Europeans in 1788. In particular, we remember a group of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples known as the ‘Stolen Generations’.

Taking time to reflect upon and recognise our nation’s past mistakes

This teaching resource has been designed to address the concepts surrounding reconciliation in a sensitive and age-appropriate manner. The PowerPoint answers the following questions:

  • What is National Sorry Day?
  • Who are the Stolen Generations?
  • When did National Sorry Day become an annual event?
  • Why is National Sorry Day important?
  • How does Australia commemorate National Sorry Day?
  • What can I do to commemorate National Sorry Day?

A great addition to your collection of First Nations resources

This teaching resource addresses the cross-curricular priority of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Culture. It would be a perfect addition to a school assembly during National Reconciliation Week.

Disclaimer: All efforts have been made to depict First Nations peoples and cultures with sensitivity; however, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples should be aware that some images used in this presentation may depict deceased individuals.
