Rork Business Development Manager, Sara Blackley along with clients Rebecca Perry and Tracey Williams recently attended the 2016 Gawura Cocktail Evening, supporting the unique Gawura program of urban Indigenous education.
Gawura is a primary day school for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children living in Sydney. Gawura delivers an intensive programme of literacy and numeracy development in a vibrant environment that celebrates and strengthens Indigenous culture.
Set up in 2007 by St Andrew’s Cathedral School, in response to the overwhelming evidence of underachievement and social disadvantage among people of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander origin, Gawura was formed. The program represents the school and communities, including local business’ commitment to the national issue of Reconciliation and to improving equality between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.
Graduating students from the Gawura Primary program are offered scholarships at St Andrew’s Cathedral School for their secondary education, allowing these deserving students a quality education within an environment that is familiar.
