Message from Principal...
Yuendumu School is a Preschool to Senior Years school, with approximately 260 students on the current roll. We have a great team of committed and vibrant staff, both yapa (Indigenous people) and kardiya (non-Indigenous). 95% of our students speak Warlpiri as their first language.

Growing them strong in spirit.
Together we will create a safe, supportive and stimulating school that nurtures each student to help them grow up strong and successful.
Our mission and structure
We are focusing on explicit teaching (English and Warlpiri) in eight areas: sounds (phonological awareness), symbols (grapho-phonics / alphabet), words (vocabulary), structure (grammar), genre (which is culture-determined), fluency, listening and speaking, and comprehension.
