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.
The dates for NRW remain the same each year; 27 May to 3 June. These dates commemorate two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey— the successful 1967 referendum, and the High Court Mabo decision respectively.
Olympic Football Club proudly embraces Indigenous culture and promote it through our Nabei Indigenous Education program in local schools.
The program uses play-based learning to develop understanding, appreciation and respect of and for the Indigenous cultures that shape our shared history and lay the platform for progress in reconciliation.
Our 2020 playing kits feature an Indigenous ball device on the back of the jersey. Phil Canham, who designed the symbol explains the meaning below.
The stylised football in this design represents passion and unity through football. The ball itself consists of six x-ray style panels coming together to form the centre point of the ball, or the ‘heart’ of the ball, where passion is generated. The six panels represent the six parts of our club: senior football, NPL, community, Girls FC, Little Olympians, and the Ability Inclusive Program.
Today we launch #NRW2020 by coming together to acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the Land we are on.— Reconciliation Aus (@RecAustralia) May 27, 2020
