This Friday, 16 September, is our MRPS Indigenous Cultural Day. After experiencing a range of activities during the day, the whole school will sing the Reconciliation song, “Walk On”. Click on the MP3 arrow to start the music. Have fun while you practise, everyone!
WALK ON Walk On
We can learn from each other, put your arm round your brother
Walk with your sister as we head on down the road
The journey of our healing as a nation has begun
We’re all in this together
Let’s take these steps as one.
Let’s walk on, Sing a song
Let’s make this journey hand in hand
Together we will heal this land, walk on.
From the time of the Dreaming the first people of this land
Knew the sacred stories of the sky and sea and land
They understood the seasons and they painted up the songs
We can learn a lot from them
To make this country strong.
We can’t forget the past with all the suffering and pain
If we walk together, it won’t happen again.
We’re children of Australia, the Great Southern Land
We will walk together to hear and understand.
