Why aboriginal education is our business

Education Programs


Manungurra Aboriginal Corporation recognises the importance of education and an active lifestyle, which includes sporting activities. Education is viewed as a foundation that provides Kunapa people and their descendants with opportunities to develop better living and working environments.

These opportunities will provide improved quality of life to Aboriginal people by:

  • Expanding job opportunities
  • Increasing financial wealth
  • Improving health & wellbeing

Funding is available to East and West Kunapa people, their children and descendants. Where government funding is available, Manungurra Aboriginal Corporation will pay a portion of the costs and other program funding. Parents are to settle the remaining amount.

Manungurra Aboriginal Corporation can provide support for schooling extras, including:

  • School uniforms
  • Travel costs for school holidays & school extras NOT covered by Abstudy or other travel schemes
  • School books & stationery
  • Sporting activities & events for participants
  • Emergency travel during the school year
  • Special education events
