Aboriginal Education

At Valley View Secondary School we are striving to support Aboriginal learners to achieve their best by providing wellbeing, achievement and post-school pathways through:

  • responsive learning environments that are inclusive of their cultural needs
  • increased engagement with families
  • increased access to learning and development programs
  • increased engagement with Aboriginal cultures and language programs
  • individualised learning plans that identify personalised support needed to participate and achieve in education and pathways to further education and employment

Families and communities play an important role in the confidence and success of Aboriginal learners. At Valley View we work alongside parents to support their child’s learning and engage Aboriginal communities to develop culture and identity of their children and young people through:

  • active participation in their child’s development through contributions to individualised learning plans
  • input and participation across our services, including within governance structures
  • opportunities to engage in the teaching and delivery of Aboriginal cultural knowledge and languages within education settings

The Department for Education has recently release a new 10-year Aboriginal Education Strategy with a vision to lift learning and life outcomes for all Aboriginal students.  For more information about the Strategy please click here.

Valley View Secondary School is committed to quality teaching and learning to ensure ‘Each Aboriginal child and young person is a proud and confident learner, and achieves their highest potential’.
