The Kununurra Follow the Dream program caters for approximately forty students from Years 7 to 12. The program’s Enrichment Centre is located within Kununurra District High School and has strong ties with the school’s teaching and support staff.
At the after-school study sessions, students have access to specialist tutors who have a strong understanding of the school curriculum and the needs of each student. The dedicated Program Coordinator and tutors regularly consult classroom teachers to identify where targeted support is needed for each individual student.
As well as academic enrichment and mentoring, students have the opportunity to go on an annual Cross Cultural Camps held during Reconciliation Week where Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal students participate in a range of enjoyable activities, including swimming, team games and sunset walks. There are also a number of university visits, work place excursions, and other trips available to the students throughout the academic year.
Students come from a variety of language groups around the Kimberley region. The Miriuwung and Gajerrong people are the native title holders of large areas in the north of the East Kimberley region. The program also caters for a large variety of traditional language groups from all over the Kimberley and Australia.
