Sorry Day


This term our Inquiry topic is “Who Lived Here First?” and this week we have been learning more about the Stolen Generation. We listened to Archie Roach, watched a few interviews of Indigenous people of Australia telling their stories or their family’s story and then we watched a clip from the movie “The Rabbit Proof Fence” and wrote an imaginative recount of what happened. Check out our writing pieces below the videos.

What  did you learn about Sorry Day or the Stolen Generation? What does this make you wonder? How does this make you feel?

    Dear Miss m&m,
    When I watched the “RabbitProof Fence it was Soooooooooooooo scary and how white mentook the abouridgini’s from their homelands .I saw Sophia and Caitlin crying and I was just about to cry as well so was Yvonne.Apart from scary it was sad ☹️and heartbreaking and if that was me I would try to get back to where I was born .But I did enjoy learning about abouridgini’s and where they took place and stuff like that.

    Dear Miss Murphy,

    When I heard about the Stolen Generation I suddenly was sooooooo emotional about the Aboriginals that they were stolen especially when I saw the clip of the Rabbit Proof fence.

    Dear M&M,
    I feel really sad for aboriginal people. If I was one of them I would hide somewhere.
