Welcome to Djarragun College

Djarragun College shares the Cape York Partnership vision for children to achieve their full potential, talent and creativity and have the confidence and capacity for hard work so they can orbit between two worlds and enjoy the best of both.

We aim to develop a holistic knowledge about each of our student’s academic ability and physical health and wellbeing to be able to fully support each of them onto a successful future life pathway.

We recognise the traditional owners of Cape York and the Torres Strait Islands and pay our respects to our elders, past and present.

Our Mission

To develop proud, strong, educated Indigenous men and women, who walk confidently in two worlds, to be leaders, and to be role models for their families and communities.

Our Vision

To be the school of choice for students, parents and communities in Cape York and the Torres Strait Islands.
