Last Friday 26 May we observed National Sorry Day in the School, to remember and commemorate the mistreatment, injustices and pain that has been inflicted on Australia's Indigenous population since colonisation.
We had the pleasure of hosting several staff from UNSW's Nura Gili, who spoke to us about the functions and aims of Nura Gili in supporting and encouraging Indigenous students.
Nura Gili provides pathways to learning opportunities that embrace Indigenous knowledge, culture and histories.
There are currently 343 Indigenous students studying at UNSW, from undergraduate to postgraduate level. Nura Gili hopes to increase that number, and also aspires to increase Indigenous student participation in STEM areas.
We are very keen to work with Nura Gili into the future to help them achieve these aims.
