Mission & Vision

To ensure that Indigenous children can access the Australian education curriculum from within the safety and security of their own cultural identity which they receive as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.

- An Aboriginal worldview is embedded into all aspects of education, teaching and learning.

- The curriculum is developed in partnership with local Indigenous communities.

- The students are fully engaged in and benefit from their schooling.

- The students are empowered to achieve strong academic outcomes.

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to save the world.”
