2024 SSA Kimberley Tour

The tour provides a unique opportunity to witness a ground breaking remote residential learning initiative, led by Bunuba people. This tour would be of great value to Private and government school leaders, engaging with remote Indigenous communities throughout Australia.

The vision of Studio Schools of Australia (SSA) is simple

To provide opportunity and greater access for Indigenous students across Australia to a unique, new model of schooling for the secondary years.
The model is co-designed and co-led with Indigenous people.

Supported by seed funding from the National Indigenous Australians Agency (NIAA), Studio Schools of Australia (SSA) has built the business case for developing a new “system” of Studio Schools in remote communities across northern Australia. 

In partnership with local Indigenous communities such as Bunuba, SSA will build a “system” of Studio Schools based on the proven success of the of the Yiramalay Studio School in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. SSA provides opportunity and access for Indigenous students across the whole of Australia to a unique, new model of schooling for the secondary years.

The tour provides a unique model of learning which brings together two very different cultures and communities – One Aboriginal with 40,000 years of history in the Fitzroy Valley of the remote outback Kimberley of Western Australia, and the other, SSA.

The education program is immersive and residential comprising academic studies, personal development and work experience. Aboriginal students are prepared for opportunities in employment or further education.

For SSA partner school students such as Wesley college Melbourne, the real life experience of the bush in Australia’s remote outback teaches how much there is to learn from Aboriginal people, their culture and their respect for land.

Excellent tour guide in Joe with an incredible knowledge not only of tradition, country, geographical evolution but also his insight into indigenous life now/for him growing up and his ancestors and the changes in his lifetime what he aspires for the future.
