FATSILC presents at NSW Aboriginal Languages Meeting PDF Print E-mail

Sone McKendry, acting manager of FATSILC, presented on behalf of FATSILC with Ken Walker and John Atkinson. The FATSILC acting manager and board representatives attended the Aboriginal Languages meeting facilitated by the NSW Aboriginal Education Consultative Group Inc and Aboriginal Affairs NSW for the NSW Aboriginal Languages and how they can further develop this policy and how other states and aboriginal organisations can assist or how the NSW can assist with this policy etc.
Workshops were more specific to the NSW policy, ie curriculum issues, linguists’ context. 


It was identified through a series of Aboriginal language forums, that FATSILC should be invited to attend the NSW Aboriginal Languages forum, to give community members a better understanding of FATSILC, its role and its history.

FATSILC received fantastic feedback from the participants at the forum and believe they were of some assistance and look forward to maintaining an effective and successful relationship with AECG.
