Learning environment and curriculum
Gawura is a cultural hub where traditional context meets innovative learning. The high teacher/student ratio enables a focus on academic excellence and offers intensive literacy and numeracy support. Gawura celebrates Indigenous culture as a pre-eminent part of the learning environment. Students learn an Aboriginal language, Wiradjuri, and are given the freedom to embrace Indigenous heritage. Close collaboration with Gawura parents and families is critical to the success of this program and to the continued engagement of the students.
