We are happy to announce that the Aboriginal Heritage Office (AHO) was the Winner in the Government category in the 2013 Building Inclusive Communities Awards presented by The Hon Barry O’Farrell. The award is from the Ethnic Communities’ Council of NSW and Macquarie University (Social Inclusion) and showcases individuals and groups whose work promotes harmony and understanding of others, and makes a significant contribution in helping to build a diverse and tolerant Australia.
Congratulations to all Councillors, Mayors and General Managers who have enabled the AHO concept to flourish. This award is recognition of the partnering Councils’ efforts in establishing the AHO and measures to ensure the protection of Aboriginal culture & heritage.
Please share this good news with the many, many others – staff, volunteers, residents and members of the community – who have assisted the AHO and Councils over the years and who have contributed to this formal recognition of the successes of the AHO.
