Seymour College has established partnerships with the Local Indigenous Network and Closing the Health Gap Lower Hume Project which promotes good health and healthy lifestyles.
The LIN provides a voice for its community and identifies local issues and priorities and plans for the future.
Part of the Seymour LIN’s implementation plan is to establish sustainable partnerships with the school community including supporting youth, men’s groups, homework centres and cultural identity projects.
Seymour College services the most populous Indigenous community in the Mitchell Shire and works with Koori Education Support Officers and tutors to support the engagement of students throughout their schooling.
The college also delivers an inclusive curriculum where Indigenous and non-Indigenous students participate in a wide range of cultural awareness activities, events and forums.
Establishing a partnership with Seymour LIN and Closing the Health Gap project will provide Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and their families with information and resources relating to health and wellbeing.
