Murawina is established

Murawina is established, an Aboriginal-run kindergarten in Chippendale by Norma Williams and Milly Ingram of the Black Womens Action Committee. The Dictionary of Sydney describes it as beginning as a breakfast program. At the onset of winter the women are allowed the use of an empty factory building. Esther Ingram also runs programs for women in the Murawina Multi Purpose Education Centre. Sylvia Scott (Ingram) and their mother, Auntie Louisa Ingram, are vital in the growth of Murawina. It becomes a model for other Aboriginal run pre schools around NSW.
