SNAICC is thrilled to announce Shelley Ware as the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day (Children’s Day) 2017 Ambassador.
Shelley is well-known for her deadly role on NITV’s ground-breaking Marngrook Footy Show and has become one of the most respected and recognised female presenters of AFL football in the country.
Shelley is a proud Yankanjatjara and Wirangu woman from Adelaide, South Australia, who currently lives in Melbourne. Shelley is a proud mother and works part-time as a childhood educator in Melbourne.
We are humbled to have Shelley as our ambassador for Children’s Day this year; her passion, drive and experiences across community and education are greatly welcomed by our team at SNAICC.
We thank Shelley for leading the voice for our children this year and spreading the word on how to best celebrate our little ones on 4 August.
Children’s Day is the one day – and a fantastic day – for our kids to feel special and to celebrate themselves.”
