By: The Educator
Hymba Yumba Independent School has been included in The Educator's sixth annual Innovative Schools report, showcasing the fifty schools making the most profound and exciting impact in K-12 education.
"The Educator Innovative Schools report seeks to showcase those schools at the forefront of change and innovation,"
Hymba Yumba Independent School is implementing project-based learning which considers the needs and development of students and empowers them to showcase their unique connection with Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander heritage and culture.
Recently, HYIS students, in collaboration with local artists, designed and created a permanent installation of artwork – a contemporary depiction of the Rainbow Serpent. This community engagement activity allowed them to work and learn collaboratively as well as showcase the diversity of First Nation Peoples and their pride in the traditional arts and culture.
