Marrung: Aboriginal Education Plan 2016 to 2026

The Marrung strategy ensures that all Koorie Victorians achieve their learning aspirations.

Marrung has been developed by:

  • Department of Education
  • Victorian Aboriginal Education Association Incorporated (VAEAI)
  • Victorian Aboriginal Child Care Agency (VACCA)
  • Victorian Community Controlled Health Organisation (VCCHO).

Strong partnerships with these organisations and with the Koorie community will be the foundation for the implementation and governance of Marrung.

Some of the Marrung initiatives include:

  • literacy support for primary school aged Koorie students
  • targeted research to achieve higher NAPLAN and ATAR scores
  • Individual Education Plans for Koorie students and their families
  • as well as Scholarships for High Achieving Koorie Students in years 11 and 12.
