Aboriginal student support

Aboriginal Education Worker

Sharen Herbert is our Aboriginal Education Worker who opens her classroom for cultural awareness and craft activities.  Aboriginal students and any other students in the school are welcome to visit Sharen during lunchtime on a Wednesday, Thursday or Friday. They immerse themselves in a variety of activities to enhance self esteem and leadership qualities. Playing games, sharing, taking turns, home reading, art and homework are only a few examples of the wonderful activities they can participate in. Sharen offers support for academic, social and cultural aspects of our students and their families. Any questions at all, Sharen is more than happy to be of assistance.

Valley Schools Aboriginal Network Meetings

Staff from Wyoming Public School regularly attend monthly network meetings of the Valley Schools Learning Community. In 2017 the group are working together to plan cultural events and programs for our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students.

This group's major focus is to continue to improve educational outcomes for all Indigenous students and thereby increase student confidence and self-esteem.

NAIDOC Day

NAIDOC Day is a highly successful and culturally significant day. All students and staff participate in the day along with  positive involvement from the school's indigenous community. Indigenous students K-6 play an integral role showcasing their talents and cultural richness by speaking about their culture through our NAIDOC flag raising ceremony. Aboriginal students from Narara Valley High School attend our celebrations to provide support for our students as they lead activities throughout the day.

NAIDOC Day continues to be a significant part of the school year, enjoyed and valued by the Wyoming Public School community.
