A 13-slide editable PowerPoint template that provides an overview of National Sorry Day.
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:

- How does Australia commemorate National Sorry Day?
