Every Wednesday Playgroup visits Yandeyarra School providing educational programs for children aged 0-5 years and their parents and guardians. The kids have a great time learning to paint, making different animals and even cooking!
Yandeyarra School is sponsored by Northern Minerals, who fund our Books in Homes Program. Their support enables every school aged student to receive 3 new release books, 3 times per year for free! Books are chosen by students (book club style), and are taken home to promote literacy. There are some great titles, some coming with 3D glasses! Reading is Deadly!
Yandeyarra School currently receives a $5000 grant from BHP to support the operation of the nutrition program. This money goes towards providing fresh, healthy meals at recess and lunch.
BHP previously supported Yandeyarra School, through individual scholarship opportunities for students, and assistance in accessing programs such as YIC (Youth Involvement Council) activities and Life Saving First Aid Programs.
Yandeyarra and South Hedland schools have a MOU in place. This means that the schools support each other, in academic and sporting endeavours. This provides opportunities and benefits for both schools, students, teachers and families.
