Meet Izak and Biwali, grade six students at Gawura, Sydney’s day school for Indigenous students.
On average, Indigenous children have lower rates of school attendance, poorer learning outcomes, and complete year 12 at half the rate on non-Indigenous students.
Gawura tackles this challenge with a strong emphasis on literacy and numeracy, and provides urban Indigenous students with the right environment for academic achievement to take place. It’s also a place of belonging, where students are proud of their heritage.
Our Foundation proudly supports Gawura, so kids like Izak and Biwali can be the best that they can be.
