Aboriginal Education

There are currently 33 students at Lambton High School who identify as Aboriginal. We are pleased that a significant number of these students perform  at or above the academic levels of our non-Indigenous students.

Programs and Initiatives

At Lambton High School we have:

  • Implemented the Norta Norta program to provide targeted learning support for Aboriginal students.
  • Monitored programs to identify Aboriginal perspective through the Teacher Assessment Review Schedule
  • Developed Personalised Learning Plans through the partnership of teachers, students and parents at a ‘Yarn Up’. These plans included goals and aspirations for Aboriginal students and were used to target appropriate assistance and resources.
  • Held an Aboriginal cultural performance with Ryka Ali for all Year 7 students.
  • Cross-referenced junior programs  with the syllabus to ensure that the mandatory Aboriginal perspectives are explicitly programmed.
  • Promoted Aboriginal students to attend Indigenous Job Market Day.
  • Organised a Wollotuka University of Newcastle visit for our Aboriginal students.
  • Provided an Aboriginal Cultural Learning experience at Mount Sugarloaf for our junior students. This was a Local Management Group (LMG) initiative with our partner schools, and with Kotara High and its primary schools. The day included a bush tucker walk where student learnt about all of the different plants available; a lookout walk and the Dreamtime; hunting skills and the Awabakal boundaries. They also had the opportunity to taste kangaroo, emu and crocodile.
  • Hosted Muloobinbah AECG meetings.

We have developed a strong partnership with the the Muloobinbah AECG and ensured their  involvement in school programs, merit selection panels and spending priorities.
