The National Apology

The word 'Sorry' written in the sky

Activity: Discuss the National Apology to the Stolen Generations.

Read the National Apology and discuss the following questions:

  • Do you believe that the promises and hope of that day have since been fulfilled?
  • What unfinished business remains?
  • Do you think the National Apology went far enough?
  • Should it also have addressed other difficult issues apart from The Stolen Generations?
  • Should it have extended financial compensation to victims of dispossession?
