Gawura

This season, we are focusing on Wiradjuri language and how it is taught within Gawura and St Andrew's Junior School.

What does the Christmas season mean to you?

Dhurinya (pronounced d-oo-rin-yu - the "u" sound is like "oo" in put) - born, to be born.

Dhurinya is not seasonal, can occur throughout the First Nations cycle (year), a re-start, a new day, a child, re-birth, continuing to be, a succession of being, a very sacred state.

This season we hope that you have the opportunity to be re-born, to start afresh.

To support our culturally authentic learning environment of Gawura, please donate if you can and "Give the Gift of Education this season".

Gawura

Did you know that Gawura turned 15 yesterday!

This week in 2007 Gawura was officially opened with a Smoking Ceremony in Sydney Square. What a milestone!

Thank you to the founders who were instrumental in the establishment of Gawura - particularly Pastor Ray & Auntie Sharon, Mr Phillip Heath AM and Mrs Cathy Miskovich.

We are incredibly grateful for your vision, determination and belief in Gawura & look how far we have come!

A thank you to all of the past and present teachers, staff, Elders, parents who had the faith to send their children to Gawura and to each and every one of our Gawura students. You have all contributed to the success of our incredible school.

Mandaang Guwu (thank you).
