Programs and Events

Acknowledging and celebrating culture is a strong belief here at Renmark High, and several different programs and events run throughout the year. Some are only for our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to strengthen culture and identity, while others are for everyone to teach some traditional ways of learning.

  • Strong Futures Class – A class which embraces identity and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and builds strong futures. A class where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and those who are not, can learn together with their peers, where traditional knowledge and learning styles are upheld and valued. Led by Daniel Giles and Howard Lindsay.
  • SAASTA – ‘South Australian Aboriginal Secondary Training Academy (SAASTA) provides Aboriginal high school students with a unique sporting and educational program. The academy aims to give students the skills, opportunities and confidence to dream, believe and achieve in the areas of sport, education, employment, healthy living and connection with their culture.’ The SAASTA academy is run at Glossop High School each Thursday and transport is provided for students.
  • NAIDOC week – Celebrating the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples through a number of activities including; cooking native foods, traditional games, film and music.
  • Reconciliation week – Embracing and strengthening reconciliation throughout our school community by participating in events such as; cultural walks at Calperum Station, whole class discussions, arts and craft.
