Ngutu / ŋttu
Kaurna word for knowledge
Ngutu College is an independent, not-for-profit, socially-just K-12 college based in Woodville North. Learning programs acknowledge and engage the individuality of all children and young people in an experiential environment in which Aboriginal knowledges are seamlessly integrated with the formal curriculum.
At Ngutu we provide options and opportunities for children and young people to achieve success through positive academic, vocational and community outcomes. Ngutu College operates with Aboriginal Cultures as its ‘soul’, young people as its ‘heart’ and the Arts as its ‘spine’.
We welcome you to join Ngutu College and participate in the myriad of learning pathways created for children and young people.
We would like to acknowledge that Ngutu College has been developed on Kaurna Country and in doing so, we honour the Kaurna people as the custodians of the land and the Elders – past, present and emerging, who are the custodians of the culture, education system and philosophy upon which the College has been founded.
