The South Australian Aboriginal Secondary Training Academy (SAASTA) works with schools to provide a unique educational program to support secondary Aboriginal learners.
The Mount Gambier Academy, based at Grant High School, works with school leaders and the local communitiy to enable government schools across South Australia to access culturally safe and responsive education programs where curriculum is connected to culture.
We give students the skills, opportunities and confidence to dream, believe and achieve in the areas of sport, education, employment, healthy living and connection with their culture.
SAASTA supports students throughout secondary school and helps set them up for successful post-school transitions to further education, training or employment.
Every SAASTA student is encouraged to aim high in the areas of attendance, participation, educational performance, and behaviour. As role models for their schools, families and communities, students support each other to achieve these high expectations.
