Abstract

Kormilda College is a day and Boarding school located in Darwin, the capital city of Australia's Northern Territory. A significant percentage of the students come from over forty Indigenous remote communities across Australia's Top End. In an effort to increase Indigenous educational engagement through student leadership opportunities, a review of the pastoral care model was undertaken from a social justice perspective. Through quantitative and qualitative research analysis, incorporating a model of Change Theory, significant organisational change was implemented at the commencement of the 2012 school year. This paper will explore student experiences through a case study approach.
