The Napranum PaL Group (NPG), which has been selected as a finalist in Reconciliation Australia’s Indigenous Governance Awards, was visited recently by a panel of judges led by Professor Mick Dodson.
NPG is an Indigenous not for profit company that owns the Parents and Learning program known to the Napranum and Weipa communities as “PaL”.
PaL is an early learning program developed to equip Indigenous parents with the skills and resources necessary to support their children’s early literacy and numeracy learning.
Nominated Indigenous organisations from across Australia are assessed and short-listed by the Reconciliation Australia review committee based on key areas of good Indigenous governance.
NPG was selected as one of the four finalists after a successful two stage appraisal and examination of credentials and good governance practices.
Following all the site visits the judging panel will meet to select the national award winners.
The winners will be announced at a special presentation event in Melbourne on August 27.
Representatives from NPG have been invited to attend this special presentation.
