National Sorry Day walk at Kirton Point

A National Sorry Day event was held at Kirton Point on Friday for students to remember and recognise the mistreatment of Indigenous Australians during the Stolen Generations.

Students from Kirton Point Children's Centre (KPCC), Port Lincoln Children's Centre and Kirton Point Primary joined together to walk around the oval to reflect on Australia's history.

Although Sorry Day was on May 26 KPCC early links co-coordinator Carly Orchard, who helped organise the event with Aboriginal early childhood educator Leona Franklin, said they still wanted to recognise the day.

"It's all about the children joining together," she said.

"It's our third year and every year it has gotten bigger and bigger and this year we had a lot of families join.

"We really feel the need to teach them the history of Australia, especially in the lead up to Reconciliation Week."

Nanna Mary Ware said it was great to see the Aboriginal flag in schools and the teachings of the history but there was still more to do.
