Strelley Community School

History

History

 

The first of the fourteen schools currently operating in WA, Strelley has over the years supported numerous small out-station schools based on its main campus at Strelley and more recently Warralong Station. Founded on the principle of community control and a strong commitment to cultural maintenance, the Strelley school developed a number of innovative approaches to incorporate Indigenous languages and pedagogy into the school program.

Since the school was originally established at Strelley, the Community has requested that annexes be established in response to moves by family groups within the larger Community. The most recent of these moves was in 1991 when a number of families moved to Woodstock and more families followed during the latter part of the year
