Dr Andrew Refshauge opens the new language centre which is being supported by funding of $1.2 million over four years
BARELY two years after the proposal to develop a State Aboriginal language policy was put to the New South Wales Government, the new language centre which was funded as a result of the policy commitment has been opened by the Deputy Premier, Dr Andrew Refshauge.

The Language Centre has been established at Tranby College Glebe, with Jaki Troy in the role of manager.

In another boost for language programs in that State, the Dept. of Aboriginal Affairs announced an additional $100,000 has been made available for grant funding for language projects for this year, which will be of particular benefit for small community initiatives.
