Nerang

Nerang focused on developing middle managers working at the intersection of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education and mathematics education.

In the Nerang Cluster four schools were from the government sector and two from Catholic education. This allowed for valuable crossovers of ideas, skills and expertise within their learning community. The schools were (links go to school site):

  • St Brigid's Primary School (Key School 2009-2011) - 500 students, 6 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, 48 staff
  • St Peter Claver College (Key School 2011-2012) - 944 students, 58 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, 125 staff
  • Nerang State School - 406 students, 46 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, 41 staff
  • Gilston State School - 650 students, 9 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, 52 staff
  • William Duncan State School - 679 students, 36 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, 69 staff
  • Nerang State High School - 950 students, 40 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, 90 staff.

It should also be noted that while a commitment was given by each school to participate fully in the project circumstances conspired to impact on the capacity of some schools to commit to all initiatives.  This was most notably the case with William Duncan State School due in part to the change of leadership at the school and to the school’s decision to desist their involvement in 2012.
