Galuwa is a Sydney-area Aboriginal word meaning ‘to climb’. Galuwa is a joint initiative between the NSW Department of Education Tamworth Educational Services and Glencore.
At the 2016 Galuwa ceremony, held at The Great Aussie Bush Camp, Tea Gardens, ten Year 6 students received a Galuwa scholarship.
Four of the ten Galuwa recipients this year are students who attend schools within the Korreil Wonnai AECG area. Korreil Wonnai would like to congratulate the recipients, and Kitchener Public School and Kurri Kurri Public School, on this outstanding achievement.
This brings the total Galuwa recipients in the Korreil Wonnai AECG area to ten, from three in primary schools and three in high schools from Years 6 to 8.
