About the Community
Kabulwarnamyo outstation is now the headquarters for the Warddeken Rangers, an Indigenous ranger team managing 1.4 million hectares of country of global conservation and cultural significance. Kabulwarnamyo is an exemplary community, providing meaningful employment on country, family continuity and the opportunity to keep long-standing cultural practices alive. Kabulwarnamyo is also one of the very few communities to continuously hold "cultural camps" for its young people, run by the elders, during the dry season school holidays, when many children return home from neighboring townships and participate in intergenerational learning activities.
A School for Kabulwarnamyo
Under the leadership of passionate volunteers such as Rick Tudor OAM (former principal of Trinity Grammar School) and Hagar Bulliwana (A community elder and an experienced Indigenous educator) the project has made significant progress. At this stage, the school is entirely privately funded and has achieved over 70 per cent of its target for the first year.
Join us on our journey
By supporting the Nawarddeken Academy you will become part of a unique journey that will enable a remote Indigenous community to have a say about how their children are educated.
You support will help to ensure that customary knowledge and practices are kept alive in a meaningful way, thereby helping to sustain one of the world's oldest continuing cultures. The integration of traditional and Western knowledge in the Academy's curriculum will also enable children to develop strengths in both cultures and the skill necessary to pursue meaningful careers working on country.
