About Us - Principal Message

Welcome to the Alyangula Area School Community!

Alyangula Area School caters for a diverse group of children from preschool to middle years. Senior year's programs are offered through the NT School of Distance Education. Alyangula Area School, along with the other schools on Groote Eylandt have a number partnerships with local organisations to enhance programs and make use of the unique environment and community. Most notably is the Learning on Country program with the Anindilyakwa Land Council (ALC) Land and Sea Rangers.

At Alyangula Area School learning for life means becoming an autonomous learner. Autonomous learning is what is needed to prepare students for a future we cannot imagine. Autonomous learners can answer three questions about their learning: Where am I going? How am I going? Where to next? To support students become autonomous learners teachers are using evidence based practices such as formative assessment based on five key strategies: Sharing Learning Intentions (Clarifying and sharing learning intentions and criteria for success) Questioning (Engineering effective classroom discussions, tasks and activities that elicit evidence of learning) Feedback (Providing feedback that moves learners forward) Self-assessment (Activating students as owners of their own learning) Peer-assessment (Activating students as learning resources for one another)

We learn for life!
