Narragunnawali News - December 2022

It has been a momentous year for reconciliation – in education and beyond. 

We saw the election of a new Federal Government and Prime Minister Anthony Albanese’s commitment to implementing the aspirations in the Uluru Statement of the Heart. The introduction of the new Version 9.0 Australian Curriculum that has a stronger focus on First Nations histories and cultures and the permanent flying of the Aboriginal Flag on the Sydney Harbour Bridge were promising steps towards reconciliation.  

However, recent events, such as the killing of Noongar-Yamatji year 9 student Cassius Turvey, as well as high-profile cases of entrenched racism in public institutions tell us that there is a long way to go on our journey towards reconciliation. They tell us that our efforts to educate and empower our children against racism, inequity and injustice are more important than ever.  

This is evidenced in the newly-released 2022 Australian Reconciliation Barometer, which shows us that while support for reconciliation remains high, there are still ways to go on our journey.  

 With the help of supporters like yourself, we can and will make positive strides. 

Excitingly, the 2023 Narragunnawali Awards season is right around the corner! Nominations and Applications for the Narragunnawali Awards 2023 will open on Monday 30 January 2023. You can learn more by accessing the 2023 Narragunnawali Awards Info Kit

We look forward to continuing the work of reconciliation with you in 2023 and wish you safe and happy holidays.
