First Nations Education for First Nations Peoples

Hymba Yumba is an innovative and inspiring First Nations school of excellence in Springfield, on the traditional land of the Jagera, Yuggera, and Ugarapul people in South-East Queensland. ‘Hymba Yumba’ means ‘Listening and Learning Place’ in Bidjara language.

Hymba Yumba provides an innovative co-educational Preparatory to Year 12 program for over 250 jarjum (child/ren)


Our school deeply embeds First Nations traditions of spirituality, identity and culture into a 21st-century education framework that focuses on the ‘whole jarjum’ and their education journey.

Hymba Yumba’s holistic approach to learning provides formal education coupled with a strong focus on the cultural, physical, emotional, and psychological well-being of our jarjum. This allows us to positively reframe the notion of what it means to be a young First Nations person learning, living and thriving in an urban community.
