  • ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “Bilingual education key to the success of Indigenous students from Arnhem Land in the NT | ABC News” – below is their description.

    It’s a school that offers education with a difference – blending Indigenous and western language and knowledge in its curriculum. And when a group of students from the Yirrkala and homelands schools in north-east Arnhem Land graduated year 12 last year, the “both-ways” approach was seen as integral to their success. Community-lead growth in this style of education has lead the Northern Territory government to rethink its approach to teaching in the bush.

    In This Story: Northern Territory

    The Northern Territory (aka NT) is a vast federal territory in Australia famed for its Outback desert landscapes. In the arid Red Centre lie the iconic sandstone monolith Uluru (Ayers Rock), the red-rock domes of Kata Tjuta and the sculpted cliffs of Kings Canyon in Watarrka National Park.

    Alice Springs is the gateway town to the Red Centre desert.

    The NT covers 1,349,129 square kilometres (520,902 sq mi). It is sparsely populated, with a population of only 245,353.

    The economy is based largely on mining and petroleum, which during 2018–2019 contributed 23% of the gross state product, or $5.68 billion, accounting for 92.4% of exports.

    The capital and largest city is Darwin. The population is concentrated in coastal regions and along the Stuart Highway.
