Aboriginal Education

Rooty Hill High School is proud to be on Dharug Land.


Aboriginal Education in Rooty Hill works to close the learning gap. There is a strong commitment to providing support and opportunities for students to excel in a variety of areas. The school has developed a strong culture of recognising student achievement through applications for external scholarships, programs and awards.

  • AFL Indigenous Academies
  • Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience (AIME)
  • Compass – Year 8 & 9 Explore Uni Day (Sydney University)
  • Norta Norta
  • Bangarra Dance Company
  • Murama
  • NRL School to Work
