Nominations now open for inaugural Narragunnawali Awards

30 June 2017 | General Interest

Reconciliation Australia is proud to have launched the inaugural Narragunnawali Awards, recognising reconciliation excellence in the education sector.

Two awards, one for early learning services and one for schools, will be awarded to recognise exceptional commitment to reconciliation in the classroom, around the school or early learning service, and with the community. The judging panel will comprise both Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous education experts.

Any school or early learning service that has commenced or completed a Narragunnawali Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) can be nominated for the Awards. Nominations must be supported and endorsed by the local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.

Nominations for the Narragunnawali Awards will be open until 16 July 2017. Be sure to nominate schools or early learning services that are doing inspirational work to increase knowledge and respect for the histories and cultures of Australia’s First Peoples.
