Pre-certificate Secondary Curriculum

Incorporated into the Two-way Science learning for secondary students is the Junior Ranger Program (JRP). This program is a natural extension of Learning on Country pedagogy and is based on the nationally accredited Indigenous Ranger Skills Guide (Caring for Our Country). It is a combination of Work Experience and VET working towards employment with the Kanyirninpa Jukurrpa (KJ) organisation which is the biggest employer of Martu through the federal government Working on Country strategy.

The JRP is organised into 40 Competencies, using some from the Skills Guide, some from the KJ Healthy Country Plan and some from specific Mathematics and Science content descriptors. This program is designed to develop the skills and understanding of students in their work-related learning and being able to track their own progress.

Currently, we have no students who have completed these Competencies. When students are ready, they will be introduced to Certificate 1, Conservation and Land Management.

The school has also organised for students to engage in work experience with a variety of tradespeople when work is done in the Parnngurr community.
