The Yiramalay/Wesley Studio School brings about positive change through education to the children and families of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal communities who are part of the school.
The Studio School is founded on an equal partnership between two diverse cultures and communities: the Bunuba people of Fitzroy Valley and Wesley College in Melbourne. The Studio School delivers life-changing learning experiences that transcend culture and location.
Spanning two sites – the remote outback of the Kimberley region and Glen Waverley in Melbourne – the school provides new pathways for students from Aboriginal communities to access mainstream education, and for Wesley students to learn on-country from Australia’s First Peoples.
The Bunuba people are the traditional owners of the land upon which the Yiramalay/Wesley Studio School stands. Central to Yiramalay’s immersive education program, Bunuba instil a sense of ownership, cultural pride, understanding and respect for people, language and country in every student.
Leadership and governance
The Yiramalay/Wesley Studio School’s leadership and governance structure ensures the best possible environment and outcomes for students and their families, while also supporting the Bunuba community.
We are committed to the protection of all children from all forms of child abuse and demonstrates this commitment through the implementation of a comprehensive Child Protection Program designed to keep children safe.
