On the weekend, sporting teams wore the indigenous guernsey designed by Anton Fallo and Uncle Neville for our Indigenous Round. Last Saturday 28 May, on the Bourke Oval, Kaurna Elder Ivan Copley conducted a Welcome to Country and Smoking Ceremony before the First XVIII match against PAC. This week we had several lunchtime activities for the students and staff, including cooking damper and fish with Uncle Ivan. We are most grateful to Mrs Coxhill, our Aboriginal Education Coordinator, for all her work in organising activities for National Reconciliation Week.

The Christian holy day of Pentecost, which is celebrated on the eighth Sunday after Easter, commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the apostles and other followers of Jesus Christ while they were in Jerusalem celebrating the Feast of Weeks. In Christian tradition, this event represents the birth of the early Church.

At Friday’s Pentecost mass, we were reminded that, like the disciples at Pentecost, we are never alone – the Holy Spirit is always with us, transforming and empowering us again and again through the people who care for us and walk with us. Mrs Coxhill presented the reflection and spoke of how the fear of difference of others can get in the way of viewing each other as equally deserving of God’s love. The Holy Spirit works within us, opening our hearts to others during this time of reconciliation.
