Parents & Families

It is never too early for young people to start thinking about their future. The Wingara Mura – Bunga Barrabugu Summer Program is designed to support your child to explore their future options and consider a university education.

Program staff in conjunction with the wellbeing team, will provide students with a culturally safe and inclusive experience while facilitating access to information and resources that support them to make the choices that are right for them.

The program is free of charge to parents and schools – the University of Sydney covers airfares, food and accommodation.

Health and safety

Your child’s safety and wellbeing is our top priority. We adopt a one staff member to eight students’ supervision ratio at all times. All Summer Program staff operate under a Code of Conduct. All key Program staff are qualified in first aid, resuscitation and have undergone child protection assessment.

A dedicated wellbeing team ensure a culturally safe and supportive environment for students during their stay.
