New student awards celebrate reconciliation

Friday, March 1, 2019

Bayside school students can win $500 in a new awards program celebrating reconciliation.

The awards celebrate the life of Torres Strait Elder Ellen Jose. Ellen Jose was a long-time resident of Bayside who passed away in 2017.

The awards program asks students to share ‘What reconciliation means through your eyes’, reflecting Ellen Jose’s inspirational commitment to building awareness of reconciliation in Bayside and beyond.

Primary school students are invited to create an artwork that reflects ‘What Reconciliation Means through your eyes’.

Secondary school students are encouraged write an essay or poem that reflects ‘What Reconciliation Means through your eyes’.

Two $500 prizes will be awarded in each category.

The top ten artworks and the top ten writing pieces will be displayed at the Bayside Corporate Centre, 76 Royal Avenue Sandringham during National Reconciliation Week 27 May – 3 June.

Finalists will be invited to attend the Bayside Flag Raising Ceremony on Saturday, 25 May 2019 at 9.30am at the Corporate Centre, when winners will be announced.
