About the Barnardos Yurangai Centre
The Barnardos Yurungai Learning Centre was set up in 2009 primarily for local Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander children who attend primary schools in the local areas, to provide a safe, nurturing environment for the children, with a focus on education and cultural activities. The incredible staff at the centre intertwine Aboriginal learning practice with traditional learning so that children can better understand the underlying principles of their cultural development.
The staff at the Barnardos Yurungai Learning Centre are community elders, led by the incredible Aunty Viv, Senior Advisor, Aboriginal Services and Uncle Bruce, Senior Education Support Worker
“We are very grateful to sass & bide for their continued support for Barnardos through their annual campaign. The Yurungai children are incredibly creative and loved being involved in the artwork featured on the sweater. The opportunity to take part in the photoshoot was great for the girls confidence and the experience helped them to understand more about design”
