Local stories and knowledge shared at Reconciliation Week

Jun 12, 2024

MNCLHD Getting on Track In Time (Got It!) team participated in the 2024 Reconciliation Walk at the Eden Street complex in Kempsey in late May.

The event brought Macleay Valley Schools, service providers and the community together on Dunghutti Land to celebrate this year’s Reconciliation Week theme ‘Now More Than Ever’.

Kempsey South Public School and the Macleay Valley Aboriginal Education Committee organised the walk and associated activities, including a student concert to showcase local stories and raise the voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people across the Macleay.

The Got It! team provided activities including a fun sensory water beads experience and crafts, and the children made rainbow serpent breathers to promote and encourage deep breathing techniques.

The Getting on Track In Time Program is an early intervention wellbeing program for children in kindergarten to year two delivered in public primary schools across the Mid North Coast Local Health District.

The program is designed for young children and their families when early intervention is likely to be most effective to help identify social and emotional challenges and support parents/carers.
