Award for Fresh Start

THERE are lots of names on the 2011 Nanga Mai winners list, and at the very top you'll find the Clarence Valley Industry Education Forum.

The forum's Fresh Start – Aboriginal Education and Employment package has taken out the prestigious state award for Outstanding Regional Innovation.

The annual NSW Schools Nanga Mai Awards celebrate and recognise innovation, excellence and achievement in Aboriginal education in public schools, school communities and Department of Education and Training regional and state offices.

The gong follows an announcement last month by Baillieu Myer AC, chairman of the Yulgilbar Foundation, who confirmed the foundation's backing of the Fresh Start initiative with $44,000 to assist with co-ordination.
