Providing a launchpad for jarjums to walk tall in both worlds

Hymba Yumba, prides itself on being an innovative school deeply committed to the traditions of Indigenous culture, spirituality and identity.

Hymba Yumba’s unique teaching philosophy is to instil in our jarjums a sense of empowerment and cultural familiarity, providing them with a launchpad to successfully commence their lifelong journey of learning.

A host of unique facilities and experiences in a unique environment is what makes Hymba Yumba one of a kind and enables all jarjums to reach their goals and succeed in whatever path they choose post school.

18 of our Year 9 and 10 Jarjums visited QUT to complete against other schools in a series of Science and Engineering challenges. Some of the challenges included: building Mars Rovers, water turbines and towers & bridges; creating morse-code style systems; and designing transport and power networks. The Jarjums showed critical thinking and resilience in the face of difficult challenges and successfully completed each one. It was wonderful to see their creative and innovative minds in action, and we at HYIS are so proud of what they achieved. Thank you Miss Lizzie and Mr Richard for taking us!
