Reconciliation Australia’s Narragunnawali team would like to thank those across Australia who shared their reconciliation stories by sending through a nomination submission for the inaugural Narragunnawali Awards. We received a lot of outstanding nominations, and our Review Committee and Judging Panel (Geraldine Atkinson, Sharon Davis and Professor Peter Buckskin) had some very tough choices!
About the Narragunnawali Awards
Reconciliation Australia, in partnership with BHP Billiton Sustainable Communities, launched the inaugural Narragunnawali Awards in 2017 to recognise reconciliation excellence in the education sector.
