Gawura School

Located within St Andrew’s Cathedral School, Gawura is a unique K-6 day school for First Nations children from inner Sydney. You can support one of these students with a fully paid scholarship for secondary school at St Andrew’s Cathedral School.

Gawura’s purpose is to close the gap in educational disadvantage of First Nations Peoples. Gawura is an environment where students feel safe, have access to wonderful teachers and an education that is culturally informed and authentic. A strong focus on literacy and numeracy sits alongside cultural learning. Gawura’s recognition as Australian School of the Year at the end of 2020 was an acknowledgement of many years of hard work.

The school now has Elder in Residence, a teacher’s aide for Year 7 to help ease the transition from primary to secondary school, and targeted intervention for students when needed in foundational K-6 years.

Your support of this project will help to provide a Gawura scholarship for a student in secondary school, making a world class education accessible to someone who wouldn’t otherwise receive this opportunity.

In 2022 we hope to raise for this project:
