Worawa caters for Indigenous girls in the middle years of schooling (Years 7-10). Students come from suburban and regional Victoria as well as from interstate.
Aboriginal families and communities select Worawa for the education of their young people as the College provides a holistic education program in a respectful learning environment which is founded on quality relationships. Families/communities see the benefits of both an all Aboriginal school and a boarding school.
A cornerstone of the Worawa educational program is the affirmation of the student’s existing knowledge and understandings. This starting point when linked to the Worawa values of Respect, Responsibility, Relationship and Rigour – extends and challenges students to strive to achieve their full potential.
Our students learn to succeed through a holistic approach that encourages their intellectual development and physical ability, as well as moral, emotional, mental and spiritual capacity.
Students live and study in a supportive and nurturing environment that fosters positive cultural identity and individual potential.
