An excellent education is the foundation for a great life. This simple statement underpins everything we do at Djarragun College.
Djarragun College is a boarding school catering for day students and full-time boarders from remote communities across Cape York, the Torres Strait Islands, Yarrabah, Cairns and surrounds. The College is dedicated to improving educational outcomes for Indigenous students and providing a robust vocational education program that will lead to quality employment.
Learning programs are delivered using Direct Instruction in Prep to Year 9 and a senior curriculum operates in Years 10 to 12, preparing students for tertiary studies or work.
For us, an excellent education is different for every student.
There is no ‘one size fits all’ thinking at Djarragun. Every student is completely unique and our focus is on firstly understanding where each student is at in his or her education and their aspirations for the future.
From that, we tailor their path forward, a plan for success, and a step-by-step strategy that will support them toward their end goal – a great life. Of course, their plan will change as they move forward and upward.
That’s why we constantly refine our understanding of each student and their next steps. Djarragun is a unique and wonderful school, but what makes us truly unique is our dedication to creating pathways for every student. Again, the end goal is a great life for each student. For us, that is a life founded on academic achievement and cultural connection. At Djarragun College our students come first. Their learning, their safety and their wellbeing are our core focus.
