Learn Guugu Yimithirr

Good to Great Schools Australia partners with the elders and speakers of the Guugu Yimithirr language to help revitalise their language.

The Guugu Yimithirr Language program uses a structured and systematic effective teaching methodology that incorporates an unambiguous and direct approach with every lesson.

Strengthening Community Through Language

The program harnesses the power of language for shaping a strong sense of identity, maintaining wellbeing and developing self-esteem and confidence.

GGSA has worked with the community to develop a suite of resources, including classroom-ready lessons, an assessment framework, Student Workbooks, Teaching Guides and online video tutorials.

This program has been designed specifically for Guugu Yimithirr bama. It is part of the work GGSA does with the Cape York Aboriginal Australian Academy (CYAAA) to ensure students have regular access to lessons in their own language.

Who Is The Guugu Yimithirr Program For?

The full program is only accessible to Guugu Yimithirr bama. If you are part of the Guugu Yimithirr diaspora or you are a school or community interested in using this program with your students, please contact us at info@goodtogreatschools.org.au.
