Aboriginal Education – Tirkanthi
Tirkanthi (a Kaurna word for ‘a learning place’) is a centre dedicated to Aboriginal students, parents/carers and visiting community members to support students’ learning.
Students R-12 are offered individual tutoring and mentoring to assist in their learning.
Students are encouraged to seek help with learning, engagement and wellbeing.
Tirkanthi is a welcoming place for parents to visit and seek support and assistance relating to family wellbeing and education. We have established a drop in centre every Monday morning from 8:30 – 11:00am. All are welcome.
Tirkanthi promotes cultural awareness, and actively celebrates special cultural events – Harmony day and Multicultural Week are highlights for Paralowie R-12.
