Thank you

Thank you for submitting your application for the National Indigenous Summer School 2023!

The next steps in the application process are:

  1. Our NIBSS coordinator, Dale Wandin, will email you shortly to confirm your application and seek any additional details from you.
  2. Each applicant will be assessed from your responses and your teacher nomination; if you feel you need to re-submit another application with additional information that may help us in assessing your interest in the program, please do so;
  3. As part of finalising your application, our team will seek the following documents from both your parent/guardian and teacher that you have nominated as part of your application:
    • a Parental Consent Form completed and signed by your parent/guardian/carer;
    • the Student Recommendation Form completed and signed by a current teacher;
    • you must also provide a Confirmation of Aboriginality with your application, alternatively if you are unable to provide a confirmation then you can complete a Statutory Declaration for your State;
    • a medical consent form completed and signed by your parent/guardian;
    • a travel policy and consent form completed and signed by your parent/guardian;
    • a rules and expectations policy completed and signed by both you and your parent/guardian.

These documents need to be signed and returned to our team before you can commence. Our NIBSS coordinator will contact your parent/guardian as well to ensure that all the required documents are submitted; please check your email for further instructions and information, as these forms and documents will be emailed directly to your parent/guardian.

If you do have any further questions and or queries about the program, please contact Dale Wandin via or call (03) 8344 3941

We really look forward to having you as a part of the program in the new year!
