Learning on Country Program boosts community engagement and school attendance
A pilot program established in remote Aboriginal communities has been found to make great progress in improving Indigenous school attendance.
The Learning on Country program was established in July 2013 and delivered across five Arnhem Land sites - Maningrida, Yirrkala, Laynhapuy Homelands (Yirrkala), Groote Island and Galiwin'ku (Elcho Island). It was developed through a collaborative process involving the Australian Government, community development practitioners, educators, local Elders and senior Indigenous Rangers.
