To achieve its aims and objectives Worawa Aboriginal College enlists the support of a wide range of specialist individuals, industry bodies, social organisations and educational and other institutions. From this wide and varied support base Worawa seeks to develop and provide innovative educational services to Aboriginal students effecting positive change and development in all facets of their personal and community life. We gratefully acknowledge the support of all who contribute to the operation of Worawa through either financial or voluntary support. We wish to acknowledge our funding partners, pro-bono and philanthropic supporters.
Worawa has teamed with the Australian Football League (AFL) to create the Worawa AFL Sports Academy. The primary purpose of the Academy is to utilise sport for enhanced educational outcomes for Aboriginal adolescents. The Worawa AFL Sports Academy is based on the philosophy of a holistic education utilising an integrated Education, Culture and Wellbeing format. Whilst Australian Rules football (AFL) forms the foundation ‘sport’ underpinning the development of the sports academy, the Academy program includes sports other than Australian Rules football ranging from team sports to individual fitness development and outdoor recreational pursuits. All activities however have a focus upon physical and mental wellbeing and consistent academic performance.
Worawa Aboriginal College is funded by the Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations.
