The SA Child Protection Awards celebrates the achievement of people and organisations who provide vital support to vulnerable children and young people and inspire others to support children and young people in care. Noarlunga Downs Primary School were nominated for the "Improving education and learning outcomes for children and young people" section. From this nomination we were named one of four finalists for our dedicated focus on fostering supportive environments so that children in care have every chance to thrive and succeed at school. A number of staff attended the awards breakfast on Wednesday this week, at the Adelaide Convention Centre. Unfortunately, we were not the winners however we are extremely honoured to have been nominated and made a finalist. It is reward and acknowledgement for the tireless work of the staff at NDPS.
