From The Principal

Yirara College welcomes you to our website. We are a secondary Lutheran Boarding College for Aboriginal students from Central and remote areas of Australia. At Yirara, Christ is central to all we do.

The Yirara

Yirara College is a vibrant and busy Christian educational community, providing a wide range of teaching and recreational programs for its students.

The College has two closely interwoven areas. One is the academic program; the other is the boarding program, both being equally important.
