The deadline for the Narragunnawali Awards has been extended, giving schools and early learning services extra time to complete an application.
The deadline for the Awards is now Friday 14 May 2021.
Reconciliation Australia CEO Karen Mundine said the Narragunnawali Awards are a chance for all to see the good work happening in schools and early learning services, and to be able to share and celebrate that work.
“We know 2020 was a very challenging year for everybody, with schools and early learning services being no exception,” she said.
“In the face of all of this, schools and early learning services have remained committed to their critical role in shaping Australia’s reconciliation journey and these are the stories we will see in this year’s Narragunnawali Awards.”
The Narragunnawali Awards are Australia’s first and only national reconciliation in education awards for schools and early learning services.
Winners of the awards will receive a cash prize of $10,000 each to go towards reconciliation initiatives.
Amy Shine, Director of Forbes Preschool—winner of a 2019 Narragunnawali Award—shared her insights on preparing an application.
“We’re a preschool, we’re always busy and it’s a big application, but once we started writing we found we had so much to say,” she said.
“Then we shared the application with staff so they could not only add to it but also so they could all see the big picture of what we are doing.”
To be eligible for the Narragunnawali Awards, schools and early learning services must have a Narragunnawali Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP).
