An exciting new venture for Coomaditchie, the Ngaramura Project provides a supportive pathway assisting young people to re-engage with education through a cultural learning framework. Ngaramura is a Dharawal word meaning "see the way".
Evidence shows that Aboriginal high school students are suspended in numbers disproportionate to enrolment numbers. The Ngaramura Project aims at providing an environment that is culturally appropriate and structured to provide students with opportunities to undertake learning of a cultural nature and also mainstream academic learnings. This project involves a range of activities and programs supporting cultural teachings, academic learning and living and social skills in collaboration with participating local high schools and partnering organisations.
If you are interested in volunteering and/or supporting this project, please contact Alyssa for more information.
