- Melbourne Indigenous Transition School – Edward Tutor
Tue 4th Dec
Every family wants the very best education for their children. For some Indigenous families in remote and regional communities, this may mean moving away from home to school in a big city; making that step can be hugely difficult. The Melbourne Indigenous Transition School (MITS) seeks to empower Indigenous students to make this step providing unique educational support. Ed Tutor is the founding executive director of the Melbourne Indigenous Transition School, The Melbourne Indigenous Transition School is a residential transition school for Indigenous students from remote Top End and regional Victorian communities. Each year, 22 Indigenous boys and girls (around Year Seven age) come to live at the MITS campus in the Vaucluse, Richmond. Each day they go school inside the Richmond Football Club, where they study an intensive curriculum focused on numeracy and literacy. MITS provides a warm home-style environment that celebrates culture and understands the challenges of transitioning from remote community to big city. At the end of their MITS year, the students move into scholarship positions at high-performing Melbourne Partner Schools. Throughout their MITS year, every student is involved in extra-curricular activities at Partner Schools, providing genuine transitional learning for both student and school.
