‘With this award ceremony we recognize and celebrate different cultural heritages but we also emphasise our common future and view: to build Victoria as a united community with shared laws, values and resposibilites; a State where members of our community, regardless of ethnicity or religion, may express and celebrate their culture, religion and heritage’ he said.

In other publicity news, an article regarding the Excellence in Education award that RNLC received at the Multicultural Awards was also featured on page 9 in the Febuary 2013 edition of The Melbourne Anglican (TMA).
Great publicity such as this means that RNLC can reach an even wider audience which helps to gain further support within the community and importantly informs potential students about our program.
