Marni Wingku

Marni Wingku is an immersive on-campus program for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander high school students, run by Wirltu Yarlu Aboriginal Education at the University of Adelaide.

In 2020 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in Years 7 to 12, from across Australia, will have the opportunity to participate in Marni Wingku.

Both students and teachers will participate in innovative, enquiry-based workshops from a range of University disciplines. These workshops are specifically designed to reinforce to students that university is a realistic goal that will enrich their lives; and empower within them the confidence and direction to pursue their ongoing education and career aspirations.

Participation is free to all students and school staff, with meals provided.

Attending students will receive a goodie bag and have the opportunity to win some great prizes.

Opportunities for rural and remote students

As accessibility to participate in on-campus activities is very challenging for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students from regional and rural schools, Wirltu Yarlu have created an opportunity to accommodate these students and their teachers/guardians while they participate in Marni Wingku.

As part of this arrangement, Wirltu Yarlu will pay the transport, accommodation and meal costs for your students and teachers/guardians.
