Study at Worawa Aboriginal College.

Worawa Aboriginal College is a secondary school for young Aboriginal women in years 7-12. Students come from Aboriginal communities in urban, regional and remote locations across Australia.

The Worawa program is based on a combined education, culture and wellbeing model in a holistic approach to support each girl to meet her full potential. The uniqueness of every student’s needs is recognised in personalised learning and wellbeing plans that are monitored and developed as students develop.

Worawa is in a unique position to address the educational needs of our students. Its relatively small student cohort, low student-teacher ratio, tailored personalised learning plans, health and wellbeing support and supportive boarding environment enable the College to provide high levels of supervision and support. Students live and study in a supportive and caring environment. The boarding house is comprised of five cottages with a pleasant, homely living environment, each with their own Boarding Supervisor.

The College has a full time Health and First Aid Administrator to coordinate student health checks with a visiting female Doctor specialising in Paediatric and Adolescent health. Specialist services in speech pathology, psychology, physiotherapy are also accessed through special arrangements along with immunisation, audiology and optometry services.

Health and wellbeing extends to diet and nutrition in the dining room and boarding house. The College has qualified Chefs who prepares nutritious meals, junk food is banned and students receive education on health in an effort to prevent the onset of chronic disease such as diabetes. The College puts emphasis on sleep hygiene to ensure students have the right amount of sleep for adolescent girls.

The College’s physical education/sports and outdoor education program has an emphasis on individual participation in a diverse range of healthy and enjoyable physical activities. Girls have access to a qualified fitness instructor and are able to work on personal goals in the College’s well equipped gym. Netball, basketball, football and softball are just some of the sports on offer along with other recreational activities.
