Summary
For most Indigenous students living in remote areas access to secondary schooling, especially to the upper levels, means leaving home to go to a school which makes provision for boarding. This is not a new phenomenon. Some of the schools providing these sorts of opportunities have been doing so for more than 50 years, with well established links to particular communities and families. However the increase in the number of young people being born and growing up in remote communities and the higher levels of aspirations for their educational success being driven from a range of sources means that the demand for this type of provision is increasing. The Australian Government provides supplementary funding to support boarding schools as well as the families of students that attend these schools. In late 2006 a number of people, mainly principals, representing 17 boarding schools with a significant group of Indigenous students enrolled, spoke with the Australian Governmentâs Minister for Education Science and Training, the Hon. Julie Bishop MP, about issues that they were confronting. Understandably, some of these issues related to funding and administrative matters. Others focused on health and well-being and improving the interactivity between the relevant responsibilities of various government departments. [p.1]
