Melbourne School introduces Yirara College in Alice Springs, for all your education and learning for your childs future, We invite you to explore and learn more about the quality 21st Century education with Yirara College.
Yirara College is a culturally diverse community, that strives to develop living skills and world views that enable people to respect and live out their Christian Faith and cultural identities. The educational program of Yirara College consists of two parts: An academic program which is carried out in the day school; and The boarding program which is carried out predominantly after school hours. The boarding program is an integral part of the complete educational program of a cross-cultural school like Yirara. Indeed, it would be accurate to say that the success of the academic program depends largely on the success of the boarding program because this program addresses the issues of western social/cultural understandings upon which the academic program is based, therefore affecting student retention.
Steeped in history, Yirara College is one of the popular school in the Alice Springs area. Our aim is clear and present in all aspects of the school. Respect, Compassion and Resilience are some of the qualities demonstrated towards the personal attributes we strive to gain and display in our community.
We endeavour to celebrate each other’s uniqueness by providing opportunity for all and to develop a culture that identifies that the journey towards excellence is often paved with trial and error, risk taking, learning from mistakes, flexibility and adaptability. We believe that encouraging students to take ownership of the learning is critical in achieving the best learning outcomes and that implicit in this concept is that students learn their own areas of strength and areas of development, through useful and explicit feedback.
