The Yiramalay/Wesley Studio School provides Aboriginal youth with a meaningful program that is unique in its ability to engage students through to Year 12 and improve overall educational outcomes that lead to employment and further education.
As a registered school, Yiramalay receives state and federal government funding, however an additional $20,000 is required per student, per year to cover the costs of the educational program. With 60 students currently enrolled, we are seeking to raise $1.2 million each year to secure the delivery of this transformative experience.
As well as the costs associated with delivering the Studio School’s rich educational program, donations and gifts are used to cover residential and travel expenses, pastoral care, industry experiences, and health, nutrition and wellbeing services.

"I have enjoyed my time at Yiramalay because it has made me more appreciative of my surroundings and my culture."
"As a mentor, I encourage the students to see that they have choices and opportunities at Yiramalay and in life."
"Yiramalay made me step out of my comfort zone and try different things like travelling overseas to China. I now work full-time as a jackaroo for Leopold Downs."
"The program has taught me to take every opportunity you get. I was a Prefect in 2016. When I graduate I hope to join the Navy or become a physiotherapist."
