Student leadership at Hymba Yumba Independent School is based on the principles of learning together, walking together, and leading together. Student leaders’ model cultural respect and knowledge, academic excellence, and lead their Tiddas and Bunjis to walk in two worlds.
“Hymba Yumba is a school like no other in the entire world. It’s a place of unforgettable journeys, friendships and experiences. It’s a community that I’m proud to be a part of, a community that is stronger than what any other school could ever dream of. This place always pushed me to be the best that I could and as a school leader I want to give back to the school and push it to be the best that it can. My leadership is inspired by the friends I’ve made and by the staff who pour endless hours of effort into shaping this school into what it is.”
“To be a leader at this school requires us to be culturally and spiritually interconnected with our school community. As one of the many leaders and role models within this school, we are working to amplify the voices of the jarjums in this community. Our job is to influence and inspire jarjums to learn and lead in both worlds. We are all in this together.”
“To me being a leader at Hymba Yumba Independent School is to lead with courage and pride in myself and my culture. Hymba Yumba Independent School prides itself in being a culturally centred school, pathing the way for its Indigenous students in both education and culture awareness. It takes courage to lead a community but with the support system provided by Hymba Yumba, I believe I can achieve and thrive.”
