 Partnerships

The Durack School Community has established partnerships with many groups and entities to deliver services and programs to the students of the school.  We value these partnerships highly and greatly appreciate their contributions.

The Indigenous Elders of Inala are valued contributors to the education of both children and teachers at Durack. Beryl Meikeljohn.
our school Elder visits us on a regular basis, working with our students    

Albert Holt, nationally recognised for his community work, was our  Elder for many years.

 A meeting with the Inala Elders is an essential part of our Indigenous Education Induction Day for new school staff.

GLENALA STATE HIGH SCHOOL

Glenala SHS and Durack SS conduct a transition program for Year 6 students and involves our students in cultural activities.

 

The Books in Homes Australia project and, through them, AUSENCO contribute to our literacy program, with each child in Prep Year receiving several  books per year. We thank them sincerely.



With both groups vitally concerned with the youth of the local community, it is natural that Durack should form a relationship with the Inala PCYC in Swallow St.  Some groups attend activities there as arranged and the PCYC provided many Durack children with Before-School and After-School care.
