Hymba Yumba Independent School named innovative school

Hymba Yumba Independent School has made The Educator’s Innovative Schools 2020 list

Online PR News – 05-December-2020 – St Leonards, NSW – A Springfield-based school has been recognised in a prestigious list of the best schools in Australia.

Hymba Yumba Independent School has been included in The Educator’s sixth annual Innovative Schools report, showcasing the fifty schools making the most profound and exciting impact in K-12 education.

“The Educator Innovative Schools report seeks to showcase those schools at the forefront of change and innovation,” says Editor Brett Henebery. “This year, the COVID-19 pandemic forced Australian schools to implement massive changes to their existing models as face-to-face classes shifted online. While this no doubt posed enormous challenges across all areas of teaching, parental engagement and student wellbeing, some schools saw some unique and exciting opportunities to innovative and improve the way they deliver teaching and learning, not just in 2020 but well beyond the pandemic.”

Hymba Yumba Independent School is implementing project-based learning which considers the needs and development of students and empowers them to showcase their unique connection with Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander heritage and culture.

Recently, HYIS students, in collaboration with local artists, designed and created a permanent installation of artwork – a contemporary depiction of the Rainbow Serpent. This community engagement activity allowed them to work and learn collaboratively as well as showcase the diversity of First Nation Peoples and their pride in the traditional arts and culture.
