Our Students

Foundations 2605141Beauty in Diversity

Indigenous people come from all over Australia to study at Nungalinya College.

However, because of our location, the majority of our students come from communities in the North, the Sea People, or from the Deserts of the Centre, the Desert People.  Students are from both remote and urban communities and their cultural backgrounds are respected and included in campus life.

Many students are mature-aged and hold positions of authority in their own communities. Nungalinya College respects these elders and the traditional wisdom they possess. We recognise that they are best placed to pass on what they learn to their young people.

Most students already possess many skills and great knowledge in other fields. Their life experiences and insights are an important resource in the courses.
