Narragunnawali News – NRW 2022: Be Brave. Make Change.

National Reconciliation Week is just around the corner!

Held every year from 27 May to 3 June, National Reconciliation Week 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.

In this edition of Narragunnawali News we focus on this year's theme “Be Brave. Make Change."

Reconciliation Australia challenges all educators to 'Be Brave' in their teaching and tackle the unfinished business of reconciliation so we can 'Make Change' in our classrooms, around our schools and early learning services, and in our communities.

We hope you enjoy this special NRW edition of Narragunnawali News.
