Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander program

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) students are supported at Northern Adelaide Senior College by a team of staff who focus on wellbeing and academic success.

Students are able to access a range of services within the school and local community in order to feel supported and successful with their SACE studies; including financial counselling, personal counselling, health checks, housing support, MetroCard assistance and Lunch Club.

Engaging in the SACE

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students at NASC have an opportunity to engage with their culture through a range of subjects and programs with an ATSI focus.

Subjects include:

  • English/Literacy
  • Maths
  • Research Project
  • Aboriginal Studies
  • Workplace Practices
  • Transition

The ATSI team works with students to support their transition back into education and assist them to engage successfully and complete their SACE.

Through the use of Independent Learning Programs, each student works with the ATSI team to plan and prepare their transition from school into the workforce, University or TAFE.
