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.
