THE slogan "in this together" has applied to so many parts of life in 2020, but it also recently applied to another important cause.
Students at Leeton High School were among thousands across the country who marked National Reconciliation Week recently.
This year's theme for the event was In This Together.
With this in mind, all year groups at the school participated in activities to mark the week.
Year 11 created a footsteps collage that symbolised the 20th anniversary of the Reconciliation Week, while teachers Brad Green and Michelle Litchfield provided an insightful history of the events leading up to Reconciliation Week and National Sorry Day.
Leeton High principal Meagan Crelley said the theme for the week was announced last year, but it now resonated in ways that could not have been foreseen at the time.
"It is a great reminder that whether in a crisis or in reconciliation we are all 'in this together'," she said.
"All year groups participated in awareness activities to acknowledge and celebrate such an important occasion.
"Students are to be commended on their respectful response to the activities."
This year marks the 20th anniversary of Reconciliation Australia's work to shape Australia's journey towards a more just and reconciled nation.
This work continues today and there is still plenty to be done as had been seen and heard during protests surrounding Indigenous deaths in custody in Australia over the past week.
Leeton shire residents have been encouraged to inform themselves about this journey.
