Ngutu College is an independent, not-for-profit, socially-just college on Kaurna Country based in Woodville North, South Australia. Learning opportunities acknowledge and engage the individuality of all children and young people in an experiential environment in which Aboriginal knowledges are seamlessly integrated with the Australian Curriculum.
We welcome all children and young people as part of a diverse community that is committed to fifty percent Indigenous enrolment. Ngutu College operates with Aboriginal cultures as its soul, young people as its heart and the Arts as its spine.
Our vision is to redesign schooling to be genuinely equitable, culturally informed and authentically child-centred.
We will achieve this through collaboration with our families, Kaurna Elders, community leaders, philanthropists and academics.
From 2023 we offer Kindergarten to Year 9, progressing year by year towards levels K-12 by 2026.
We believe in learners working in diverse groupings, including by age, interest and experience. The progress of children is supported at their next ‘point of nudge’.
Ngutu College is proud of its highly skilled and dedicated team. Our Board consists of a majority of Aboriginal members who bring strong governance, financial oversight, and cultural leadership experience.
Our staff strikes a balance between experienced professionals with extensive expertise and newer educators who relate to and inspire our young people, serving as role models for learning.
The success of Ngutu is intricately linked to the growth of our wider community.
This encompasses not only those who are present on-site daily and the dedicated volunteers, but also those who contribute valuable in-kind services and generously donate to our tax-deductible funds.
