Koorie Girls Academy

The Koorie Girl’s Academy was established in 2012. The purpose of the Academy is to provide support to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander girls enrolled at the Mildura Senior College. A Pathways class was established in 2014 to provide a more structured approach in support and monitoring of the girls.

The focus of the Koorie Girl’s Academy is to:
  • Provide support and advocacy on behalf of the Koorie girls
  • Promote an environment that is based on high expectations
  • Increase retention rates to Year 12 or its equivalent and beyond
  • Engage in training and employment opportunities
  • Assist with tutorial support
  • Ensure a culturally safe and secure environment for the girls
  • Provide a positive transition experience from Year 10 to 11
  • Increase confidence and self–esteem in young women
