ALPA Higher Education Hub student uses her skills to teach Yolngu Matha.

Caprice Gaykamangu, a member of the ALPA Higher Education Hub in Ramingining, has started delivering weekly culture and language lessons in Yolgnu Matha to her Year 3 and 4 classes.

Caprice is a bright and promising student who is currently completing Certificate III in Education Support through Bachelor Indigenous Institute of Tertiary Education (BIITE), with on-ground support from Higher Education Tutor, Heidi Willans.

Thanks to the collaboration and support of the ALPA Higher Education Hub, Ramingining School Principal Sue Mcavoy, and Class Teacher Sharon Clark, Caprice is now utilising her skills and newfound confidence to develop and lead these classes.

Heidi also attended BIITE with Caprice and fellow student Daisy Banaka earlier in the year to support them. Daisy Banaka, one of Caprice’s colleagues at Ramingining School, completed her Certificate III in Education Support not long after the intensive.

With on-ground support now established, Caprice is hoping to continue her studies with the view of continuing into university one day.
