Ngalangangpum School, Warmun
Ngalangangpum School is a Catholic Kindergarten - Year 10 school with a current enrolment of 90 students and is part of the Warmun Aboriginal Community, located halfway between Halls Creek and Kununurra in the remote East Kimberley region. With a fluctuating population of up to 400 people, this is one of the largest Aboriginal communities in Western Australia, with the majority of its residents being members of the Kija language group.
Ngalangangpum School was established in 1979 in answer to a direct request from the Warmun Community whose members wanted to be in more control of the education of their children. The community decided on a Two-Way school based on Catholic beliefs closely married with the Narrangkarni (Dreaming). A community School Board continues to be responsible for assisting the school principal in the development of school policy and cultural procedures.
In 2011 the community experienced a flood that destroyed 80% of the community, including the school. The new school facilities officially opened in 2016 and include new classrooms, a Trade Skills Centre with a fully equipped kitchen that supports the school Café. Traditional aspects of education are also recognised; the aim is to equip students with an education that is contemporary but that is also cognisant of cultural identities. The school encourages the involvement of community members in the teaching of traditional culture and beliefs.

Coaching structures across the school provide a rich framework for professional development and growth of staff in an effort to have the most impact in improved learning outcomes for students. Throughout 2018 the Stronger Smarter approach has been implemented across the school which highlights no excuses and high expectations for all.
This role commences on 1 January 2019.

John Pujajangka-Piyirn Catholic School, Mulan
John Pujajangka-Piyirn Catholic School is situated in Mulan, close to Lake Gregory (Paruku) a remote area of the Kimberley region in northern Western Australia. The traditional owners of the land are the Walmajarri people, and in 2001 the area became WA’s first Indigenous Protected Area. While Mulan is set in the desert it’s close proximity to Paruku means that it takes in a vast desert wetland system of national and international significance with breathtaking scenery. As a Catholic school we follow the guidelines of the Broome Diocese and hold the gospel values of Jesus as our guide in all that we do.
The school and community were both established in 1979. The school, founded by the Sisters of Mercy and now run by lay staff, has three classes: Kindergarten - Year 1, Years 2-5 and Years 6-9.
