Yuendumu School is a Preschool to Senior Years school, with approximately 160 students on the active 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.
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.
