Woolaning Homeland Christian College - History
As a result of the sucessful 'Family Group Homes' boarding program for indigenous students at Marrara Christian College, the Associaiton entered into an extensive research project to establish the feasability of replicating this in a remote context.  With support from the Woolaning Community, a secondry indigenous boarding college was established on a block of land adjacent to Litchfield National Park (close to the well-known Wangi Falls).
 
In July, 2002, Woolaning Homeland Christian College commenced with 24 students from across the Daly and Cox-Finnis regions.  The college received generous support from the Federal Government in order to establish purpose-built accomodation and educational facilities, together with power, independent water supply and a store.  A feature of the construction of the college included training oportunities for indigenous young people.
