Aboriginal Education

With over 2500 Aboriginal students and more than 100 Aboriginal Teaching Assistants in our schools across Western Australia, and the system-wide key initiative of Transforming Lives: Strategy 2025, we are committed to creating an inclusive and outstanding learning environment for young Aboriginal people and their families.

The Aboriginal Education Team strive to ensure Aboriginal students have equitable access and participation in the Catholic schooling process, and every opportunity to achieve educational outcomes equal to that of their non-Aboriginal peers. Our dedicated Team stretches across the State, with consultants in the Bunbury, Geraldton and Broome dioceses. We are committed to supporting whole school improvement using an Aboriginal Education lens.

Aboriginal Student Bursaries

Applications are invited from Aboriginal families who would like their children to receive a Catholic secondary education. Parents/guardians of eligible students are invited to lodge an application with their selected school early, as the number of bursaries are limited in each school. Information and application forms are available from the principal.
