Bibi Yungan commenced as an independent educational centre from Prep to Year in 2016. Bibi Yungan is a Djabugay phrase which means “Train up a Child.” and comes from Djabugay elders who attended the Kuranda Seventh Day Adventist church in the 1980’s. Establishing a culturally appropriate Christian place of learning for Bama children has been a vision of the Kuranda Mona Mona elders, the Kuranda SDA church members and community parents for many years.
Bibi Yungan is wholly supported by Ngoonbi Community Services, Kuranda Seventh-da Adventist Church and many other community members. Bibi Yungan teaches values and is culturally designed learning to grow strong resilient children who can take their place in their community and the world.
