Reconciliation Australia – Narragunnawali

National Reconciliation in Education Awards: Entries open now!

Reconciliation Australia is proud to launch the third Narragunnawali Awards recognising exceptional commitment to reconciliation in education.

The Narragunnawali Awards are Australia’s first and only national reconciliation in education awards for schools and early learning services.

Cash prizes of $10,000 as well as media and promotional opportunities are on offer to the winning school and early learning service that displays exceptional commitment to reconciliation.

Reconciliation Australia CEO, Karen Mundine said the recently released 2021 State of Reconciliation in Australia Report consistently asserts the role of education as a driving force in the reconciliation movement.

“Education is critical to how we understand and think about the world and about reconciliation; the earlier we have these conversations the better,” said Ms Mundine.

“These awards will showcase the huge amount of substantive work occurring in schools and early learning services, not only through teaching about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures in the classroom, but also through building relationships across education settings and their local communities.
