Alex Shain is the General Manager of Narragunnawali: Reconciliation in Schools and Early Learning. He trained as a primary school teacher and has taught in many different school settings, beginning his career in far western NSW and most recently teaching in inner city Sydney. Alex joined Reconciliation Australia to design Narragunnawali and he reckons it’s the best teaching job in the country.
Alex firmly believes that without those who have come before, we wouldn’t be able to have the conversations we are having today. The work of many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and non-Indigenous Australians has laid the foundation for the next generation to move forward together.
