Hymba Yumba, (Bidjara Language) a Community Listening and Learning Place,
is an innovative education and community building initiative. Our Prep – Year 12
school is grounded in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures.
Students are encouraged to achieve academic, sporting and creative excellence
in a culturally affirming, dynamic environment. In the tradition of their peoples,
students are encouraged to show Respect for Self, Elders, Family, Community
Students build strong and proud Indigenous identities in a nurturing and challenging
school environment. The contribution of knowledge and wisdom by
the Elders, Families and Community are at the core of the education process at
Hymba Yumba. Our students are actively engaged in education and they achieve
solid academic outcomes. Their confidence and self-esteem is growing and their
pride in Culture is driving them forward.
Hymba Yumba provides seamless education and training from Birth to Employment.
Hymba Yumba also includes: Early Learning and Childcare (0 – 5 years), a
fully accredited school (Prep – Year 12), Vocational Education and Training (all
ages), health and wellbeing services, an Elders Bora Place and University pathways.
The knowledge and wisdom that Elders, Families and Young People bring
to the school community is valued and respected.
Our vision at Hymba Yumba Community Hub is for Jarjums to achieve their full potential
in a modern Australian Society and contributing to the spiritual, social, cultural political
and economic life of their family and community.
