“We know that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children thrive in environments where they a have strong connection to culture and community.” Minister Ken Wyatt. August 2019
More and more of our students are participating in the Gawura programme through to Year 12 and the program is expanding. This year we have eight students in secondary school, but in 2025 we will have 29 students in secondary school on scholarships, meaning the cost of education those students will increase by $1.5 million annually. We currently do not have the funds to ensure the educational future of our students.
