On 20 November 2018, nine of Western Australia’s rural and remote schools – some in the most isolated areas of the State – have joined the Kimberley Schools Project, an initiative that motivates children to regularly attend school and advance the progress of Indigenous students. It focuses on targeted teaching to students’ specific needs in literacy and numeracy, providing improved learning and care in the early years, strengthening regular attendance, and increasing student and community engagement.

The nine schools joining the Kimberley Schools Project in Term 1, 2019 are:

  • Broome Primary School (Public School);
  • Broome North Primary School (Public School);
  • Halls Creek District High School (Public School);
  • Kununurra District High School (Public School);
  • Muludja Remote Community School (Public School);
  • Ngalapita Remote Community School (Public School);
  • Roebuck Primary School (Public School);
  • Wananami Remote Community School (Public School); and
  • Warlawurru Catholic School (Catholic School).
