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
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'.
