A shared painting exercise titled the ‘Sea of Hands’ to represent the Aboriginal Flag for National Reconciliation Week was featured by Perth train operator METRONET.
METRONET recently marked National Reconciliation Week by hosting a number of events across their agencies and project sites.
This year’s theme focused on ‘More than a word. Reconciliation takes action’.
Celebrations took place across the projects – with the Claremont Station team facilitating story sharing by Robyn Collard and dancing over a morning tea, while in Bayswater the project team held an early morning toolbox where Lance Morich spoke to the team.
Ralph Mogridge spoke to the Mandurah Station Carpark team and George Walley delivered a Welcome and performance, and at the Railcar Procurement project the team delivered a morning tea with a shared painting exercise titled the ‘Sea of Hands’ to represent the Aboriginal Flag. And their delivery agencies engaged Nev Collard to facilitate language lessons among other activities.
National Reconciliation Week is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.
