‘What Works’ to support Indigenous boarding students
The Minister for Indigenous Australians, The Hon. Ken Wyatt AM MP, in his opening address at the 2021 Symposium in Cairns announced the funding for IEBA to create an online resource of ‘What works’ to support Indigenous boarding students.
IEBA is looking to use technology and create an easy to use engaging website. It will not just be a resource for excellent practice in boarding and the classroom, but will help parents and families prepare for a boarding education, links to the Indigenous cultural standard framework, and help school leaders set the right cultural tone and environment that will allow indigenous students to thrive.
