Watch Izak talk about his family here
Izak who completed year 12 in 2019 is the first student to have started at Gawura in Kindy in 2007 when Gawura was established, and to have gone right through to complete the HSC. He has now commenced a medical degree at UNSW and when he graduates hopes to work in community.
Izak’s family are from the Ngarrindjerri & the Pitjantjara Nations. Our staff saw Izak mature into a wise and generous student who gives so much to other Indigenous students and to the community. He is the embodiment of reconciliation, just like his Great, Great Great Grandfather, David Uniapon the preacher and inventor who we see every day on the $50 note.
Izak’s brother Ivor was the first Gawura student to complete year 12, and has completed a business degree at university.
