Indigenous Student Life at Prince Alfred College

“Myrna, yalta, ngadlu tampinthi” “We recognise the people and their land.” (Kauna Yerta)

We acknowledge the Kaurna Peoples are the traditional custodians of the land that encompasses the Adelaide Plains, including Prince Alfred College. We pay respect to the Elders past and present of the Kaurna nation and recognise that their cultural and heritage beliefs are important to them and us today.

We seek to offer a welcoming and engaging space to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and their families.  Our students come from all around Australia and among them are proud Ngarrindjeri, Gunditjmara, Djugun, Kokatha, and Jawyon young men.

A sense of belonging. Inclusion in activities. Indigenous culture that is recognised, respected and celebrated.

Our Indigenous students bring an important cultural presence and contribution to our learning environment.  Some are quiet, some are out-going, but all desire leadership opportunities and the tools to make a positive difference in the world. We are honoured to be a part of their journeys.

At Prince Alfred College, we are able to provide high-quality education which might be unavailable in some students’ home communities.  This includes an outstanding academic program, a safe and stable living environment, strong on-going support and exciting opportunities for students to be involved with sports, music, drama and more. Our commitment to our students can be seen by the genuine investment given by our Headmaster Bradley Fenner, the College Council and the College community.

The Kaurna People are the traditional custodians of the land that encompasses the Adelaide Plains, including Prince Alfred College. We see our connection to Kaurna culture and history as very important in our journey of learning about reconciliation. In 2015 launched our own Narragunnawali Reconciliation Action Plan.
See our Vision Statement and Reconciliation Action Plan here.

We understand that positive relationships built on trust and kindness are the keys to success.
