A wonderful look into Yirrkala School’s strong and unflinching bilingual education program. The school is looking for new staff in 2017 and sends this message:

Yirrkala School is a proud Bilingual Two-way community-based school. If you are interested in working in remote indigenous bilingual education, please contact Stuart Bramston and Merrki Ganambarr at admin.yirrkala@student.ntschools.net
