Creating a shared journey

The Hymba Yumba Foundation was established to raise funds to directly benefit every Hymba Yumba jarjum. Our vision is to inspire the Hymba Yumba community to partner with us in impactful fundraising initiatives in an effort to help shape our jarjums futures.

In the words of Uncle Albert Holt, “education is the key to everything”.

You hold that key.

Your support sustains Hymba Yumba’s vision to create endless possibilities and pathways for our jarjums to succeed beyond their schooling life.

Supporting investment in programs and infrastructure that deliver exceptional learning outcomes will open doors to futures shaped through education. 

Our priority programs for investing include World Class Arts facility, Year 13 Coordinator, Writers Toolbox and our Master Plan. You can find out more details in our Case of Support below.

 

Check out the video below about the Writers Toolbox, which was generously sponsored by Springfield City Group and their Chairman, Mr Maha Sinnathamby.

 

Ash Barty is passionate about providing opportunities for Indigenous children in sport and education, particularly in her local community of Springfield. Ash was therefore very proud to donate the new Prep-Year 2 Playground to the Hymba Yumba Independent School, which she opened on the 3rd of November 2021. Ash hopes that the playground will provide many happy days for the students and help encourage outside play, learning and development and most importantly be a place where the children can have fun. Ash has a strong connection to Hymba Yumba as her sister Ali is a teacher there and being local to the area, Ash is aware of the wonderful work the school does.

 

“It made me very happy to see the kids enjoying the new playground, they were all smiling and having a great time playing together. The Hymba Yumba school do wonderful work in our community and are nurturing the next generation. If I can make a small difference to the school and the kids by donating this playground then I feel proud of that.”
