Wiluna Remote Community School (5478)



School Overview



Wiluna is a culturally special and historically unique place, surrounded by desert, waterways and cultural areas. We are situated 1000km north east of Perth and 550 km north of Kalgoorlie. The Wiluna Remote Community School(RCS) caters for four year olds to Year 12 and has a population of between 85 and 115 students.
Our school staff are committed to connecting learning to the Martu Calendar, our local curriculum. The Calendar was created by local families over the last few years, and ensures that learning is connected to country and culture.
Most students come from the town and the largest community at Bondini about 6km east. Wiluna also attracts students from the Kutkabubba Community, 36 km north. A school bus provides transport to and from school for these students.
The Indigenous language of the area is Martuwangka however most students at Wiluna speak Aboriginal English. Wiluna (RCS) also has students from other places in Australia and the world, like Tonga and New Zealand.
The Wiluna community, staff and students are very proud of the school. Our staff have high expectations that our students will achieve greatness. All the artwork around the school has been made with and by students, and it reflects aspects of our two-way learning program. The school council have decided that language and culture, attendance and health are school priorities. We have music, gardening, cooking, sports and woodwork facilities to keep children happy, engaged and learning.
