Yuendumu School is proudly bilingual and bi-cultural and keep this two-way approach as our guiding principle. Warlpiri literacy is emphasised in the first years of schooling and then there is a transition to more and more English at year 3 level onwards.
Our School Values
As a bilingual school it is important that Warlpiri values are also upheld and equally respected as with English. It is very difficult to translate from Warlpiri to English and convey the extent of meaning of each word chosen as a Warlpiri value.
Our school newsletter show all the great things that are happening within each classroom and special fun events that have been held.

Todays assembly was run by the teachers of Jajirdi class: Grianne, Levina and NC! They showed us a picture slideshow of what the class has been doing, stuff like bush trips, learning maths and reading. Jajirdi students made a role play video of their book they have been reading and it was awesome! We also said a sad goodbye to Lacey and Dakoda for their last day at Yuendumu school. We are all gonna miss you guys 🧡 We also have one of our senior girls Slyvanna going off to boarding school next week so we all said good luck
