Top class educators

THE CLARENCE Valley has been well represented at the fourth annual NSW Schools Nanga Mai Awards for Aboriginal Education Excellence.

The award ceremony, held on Tuesday night at the Australian National Maritime Museum in Sydney, saw not one but two awards go to the Clarence Valley.

The first went to Tanya Flanders, a teacher at the Induna School in South Grafton, who won Outstanding Contribution to Educational Achievement by an Aboriginal staff member for her dedication to Aboriginal education.

The second award was given to the Clarence Valley Industry Education Forum for its Fresh Start Aboriginal education and employment program, aiming to increase engagement and retention rates for young Aborigines.
