Principal's welcome

Welcome to Cape York Aboriginal Australian Academy. We acknowledge the traditional owners of the lands we work and live on, and pay our respects to Elders both past and present.

As the Executive Principal I speak for the entire teaching team in our commitment to effect long term change, and ensure that all students have all the foundations for a strong future.

A key component of our Academy model is engaging and empowering parents and families so that they are best placed to demand the best quality education for their children.

We invest in developing and implementing quality programs that respond to the needs of our students and continue to develop our highly skilled teaching team.

Since implementing our unique education approach, the Academy has shown significant gains in outcomes for students. National assessment tools show continuing progress, with more students attaining national minimum standards, and appearing in upper band levels.

Through our model of these high expectation relationships, our teachers and school leaders are always developing quality relationships with our students, our parents, their colleagues and importantly, with the school community. This enables our students to excel so they have the poise and capacity to 'get ready, work hard and be good'.
