A Sea of Hands has visited Dandenong South Primary School during National Reconciliation Week.

Staff and students signed and wrote messages of support for reconciliation on the hands, which were installed on Tuesday 28 May.

It was an echo of the landmark showpiece of about 70,000 hands outside Parliament House in Canberra in 1997.

The touring installations are organised by national advocacy group ANTaR.
