Ernabella Anangu School is situated in an Anangu community on the Pitjantjatjara Lands in the north west of South Australia.
Ernabella Anangu School is governed by its governing body, but is also under the governance of the PYEC (Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Education Council) across the APY lands schools. Together with the PYEC, the governing council, site leaders and staff the schools priorities are set.
The school focus is literacy, numeracy, student well-being, Pitjantjatjara language and Anangu Domain. We have many other things that we continue to develop as part of our “building on successes” focus. These include ceramics, music , choir, circus, BMX and basketball. We have a strong and committed group of Anangu staff and teachers who work together with community to put these things together.
