Eels Celebrate National Reconciliation Week

On Friday morning, Eels staff gathered together in recognition of National Reconciliation Week.

National Reconciliation Week (NRW) 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. Reconciliation must live in the hearts, minds and actions of all Australians as we move forward, creating a nation strengthened by respectful relationships between the wider Australian community, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Elder, Uncle Greg provided an inspiring Welcome to Country that was followed by NRL School To Work Project Officer, Greg Waddell highlighting some of the success stories from the students involved in the program.

After the formalities, staff enjoyed a morning tea and listened to Uncle Greg reflect on his time as a young Rugby League player.
