Cooerwull Public School Grand Champion Award

Cooerwull Public School was placed 1st, 2nd and 3rd in many areas, and we were delighted to receive the Grand Champion award.

Students from 10B recorded their experiences in the Yarning Room on a marvellous poster. Students replaced words with images and symbols in their storytelling.


Cooerwull Public School received the ‘Outstanding School Award’. A school in this category has to demonstrate a commitment to improving the educational outcomes of Aboriginal students. Nominees must demonstrate that their school has developed and maintained successful partnerships with their local community that have impacted positively on school planning practices.

Nominees must also demonstrate an outstanding and innovative approach to Aboriginal education. The school has recognised the work of Uncle Owen and Auntie Kym for their positive contributions to Aboriginal Education at Cooerwull and within the local AECG Aboriginal Education Consultative Group.
