Our 2020 school captain Jahmarlah Bonner visited USQ today with Aunty Viv to enrol in a Bachelor of Primary Education. It was great to catch up with the fabulous Miss Gerty in her new role as a First Nation Student Success and Support Officer who helped us complete the paperwork. We cant wait to see you teaching our jarjums at Hymba Yumba Jahmarlah! There are plenty of opportunities for community members who want to go to university- please contact Miss Tate if you would like any further information.
