I am delighted to announce that this morning Mount Lawley Senior High School was presented with the 2021 WA Premier's Excellence in Aboriginal Education Award at the WA Education Awards Breakfast held at Optus Stadium.

This award recognises schools that work actively to improve education outcomes for Aboriginal students. It acknowledges a primary or secondary school that demonstrates embedded and consistent practice in building a whole-school culture focused on improving the outcomes for Aboriginal students.

I would like to extend my congratulations and gratitude to all staff for their commitment and hard work to create a culturally safe environment for all students. I especially acknowledge the outstanding efforts and ongoing dedication of the team - Dr Philip Paioff - Aboriginal Excellence Program Coordinator, Ms Tina Deegan - Follow the Dream Coordinator, Ms Shania Cuthbert - Follow the Dream Administration Officer, and Ms  Tasmyne Doyle - Aboriginal and Islander Education Officer. This award is testament to your continued enthusiasm, passion and devotion to ensuring our students reach their full potential.

Congratulations and well done to the many students, parents and staff who contributed to the nomination.
