Jungdranung Remote Community School (5670)

School Overview

Jungdranung Remote Community School is located 132km south east of Kununurra in Kija tribal land in the East Kimberley, amidst the spectacular Ragged Range in the Mandangala Community on Glen Hill Station. Opened as a 'Special Aboriginal School' in 1984, the small school is an integral part of the community.

Named after a local elder and defender of the land in the nineteenth century, Jungdranung Remote Community School provides education that focuses on pride, achievement, values and empowerment in a caring and inclusive environment.

Jungdranung is well-resourced, with the latest technology available for children to use. Children enjoy individualised programs and a high teacher to student ratio. Behaviour is excellent and significant academic progress is evident in those who attend regularly. Our school has a strong focus on literacy and numeracy, embedded within all curriculum areas. Excursions to other schools and centres in the region allow students opportunities to engage in various sporting, cultural and musical events, and other special occasions.

The school is now part of the Kimberley Schools Project, a targeted teaching approach to promote early years learning. As part of the project, a Kindilink program is being developed to cater for children from 0-3 years of age.

Pastoral care is at the centre of our core business. Our staff have formed strong partnerships with the community and children show great enthusiasm for learning.
