At GSSC, our Ngarri Ngarri team of Koorie Educators work to support our First Nations students to meaningfully engage in education, be strong in their culture and feel connected and supported to aspire to great things.

But we cannot do this alone. Together with our families and community, our Ngarri Ngarri team have forged strong partnerships with external organisations including Ganbina, Rumbalara and GOTAFE.

Together, we work to improve outcomes for our young people and help them have the best future possible.


Lincoln Atkinson, Year 12

I've been with Ganbina for majority of my schooling years and they have really supported my academic aspirations and cultural knowledge. I'm really grateful for the support I have received from them whether it be financial support or participation in the leadership program.

Through Ganbina I have visited places such as Cairns and New Zealand, which really enlightened my perspective on other Indigenous cultures and communities. Their dedication to creating positive education frameworks for First Nations' youth is inspiring and I truly value their commitment. Next year I'd like to study a Bachelor of Film and Television at Melbourne University to expand my creative voice and fuel my passion for unique visual storytelling. As a career I'd like to pursue directing, screenwriting, and screen production.

Kirralai Boney, Year 11

I’ve been part of the Ganbina Leadership Program since the start of this year. I’ve enjoyed getting to know other people and building my leadership skills.

We get some great opportunities – earlier this year I attended a leadership camp in Sydney and these school holidays I’m going to Cairns. The group will also go to New Zealand later in the year.

I’ve enjoyed the guest speakers and mentors we’ve been able to meet and hear from at the leadership camps. It’s good to listen to other people’s life experiences and overall, the program has helped me to open up a lot more and build my confidence.

After school I’m hoping to become a journalist so another aspect of the program I found really good was attending the Ganbina Careers Night this year where I was able to speak to people from Melbourne University about my career goals.

Rumbalara Aboriginal Co-operative

Cody Fairless, Year 11

I’m undertaking a School-based Apprenticeship and Traineeship this year at the Rumbalara Elder’s Facility where I will gain a Certificate III in Individual Support. I attend a day a week and undertake a mix of theory and learning on the job.

After school I’d like to work in the social work field or with young kids – I also completed work experience in Year 10 with Gowrie St Primary School.

I’ve loved the experience so far – Rumbalara have been really supportive and encouraged me to take the lead on coordinating an activities program, which has been a good challenge. It’s a privilege to be able to listen to the stories of the Elders and work with a range of different people. I’ve also received a lot of guidance from the Careers Team at school and from Head Start who run the SBAT program.

GOTAFE Koorie Unit

Siona Atkinson-Solomon, Year 11

I’ve been interested in make-up since I was little, so at the beginning of this year I decided to do a Certificate III in Make-Up with GOTAFE.

I attend GOTAFE once a week where I do a mix of practical work and theory. It’s been really good so far – although there’s a lot of theory it’s very engaging, I am so involved the day goes really fast. We’ve learnt a lot of things, such as how to cater for everyone’s needs and work on different skin types and it’s something I am wanting to continue after school.

I’ve received a lot of support from the GOTAFE Koorie Unit. They’re always checking in on how we are and if we need anything and it’s great to know we can reach out if needed, they are always there for us, and work hard to empower us to want to be the best we can be. I am looking forward to progressing to a higher Certificate and setting myself up for the future.
