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.

We are committed to offering learning opportunities and experiences in a Christian environment enabling our students to develop their skills and abilities, to prepare them for a meaningful and successful life.

At Yirara College we are passionate about providing an education that encourages, challenges and inspires each student to learn about the world in which they live. We are determined to continually develop our facilities and resources to give students a range of rich experiences, and to make our College a wonderful place for students to live in, to interact with each other and to learn.

Above all, it is my prayer that each member of the Yirara College community will grow in the knowledge and understanding of God’s grace, rest in the hope we have in Jesus and live and work together as a community of faith and love, to honour and serve Him in all that we do and say.

Roger Ashcroft, Principal
