Narragunnawali Awards for schools and early learning centres

Reconciliation Australia  have launched their inaugural Narragunnawali Awards that recognise 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.  Award winners will receive a fully funded celebratory event in the school or early learning service which might include a presentation ceremony, performances, catering, and creative workshops led by artists, dancers and musicians.

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

Nominations for the Narragunnawali Awards have been extended to 30 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.
