Learning

Your Council’s aspiration is to make our community the best we can be. We are committed to helping our young people fulfil their potential through education.

Our educational facilities are available for all young people in our community. 


Bloomfield River State School 

Bloomfield River State School enrols students from prep, primary and high school age. The school is located at Rossville in the Bloomfield River Valley, about 8km from the Wujal Wujal shire.

Indigenous Outreach programmes – Red Earth & Jabalbina Rangers

Our Jabalbina Rangers work with Red Earth to welcome young people from across Australia to our traditional lands for in-country immersion experiences. This is a chance for valuable education outside the classroom where students can learn about Australian history through an appreciation of the connection to country and the culture of our First Australians. In our remote region, the experiences include camping, rainforest walks, fishing and a trip to the Great Barrier Reef.

You can find out more about the programme on the Red Earth website http://www.reo.net.au.

As well as teaching students from outside our community, the Jabalbina Rangers work with our local young people to provide opportunities for them to learn the skills needed to maintain our lands and conserve our wildlife. 


Digital and technology skills

Our local community radio station is networked with the Queensland Remote Media Aboriginal Corporation  The network allows students to study certificates 3 and 4 in remote broadcasting. Some of the training is conducted at a radio station in Brisbane, learning skills important for future employment opportunities. More information can be found at: https://qram.com.au.

The technology centre at the Binal Mangka Bayan Indigenous Knowledge Centre is available for everyone in the community and it provides training in digital skills.


Learning about our local history and culture

Locals and visitors alike can also visit the Indigenous Knowledge Centre to learn more about Aboriginal history and culture in the Wujal Wujal area and surrounding shires.

People who are interested in learning more about Aboriginal arts and crafts can also take up short courses and learn directly from local artists at the Bana Yirriji Arts and Cultural Centre.
