ABOUT US

Teachabout is a youth-led organisation that runs a school holiday program to extend and enrich learning through activities in remote communities.

Our program is currently run twice a year in Minyerri, a remote community 270km southeast of Katherine in the Northern Territory.

The idea for the program emerged in 2010 after four students from the University of Melbourne visited Minyerri over a number of years and wanted to continue the friendships they had made.

Teachabout ran its first program in 2011 with the eager Year 5s and 6s at Minyerri School.

Since then, we have developed strong connections with many community-based organisations all of which have been actively involved in ensuring Teachabout’s success.

Our name, Teachabout, closely aligns with the word tijimbat, a Kriol word from the Roper River region, which means 'teach your kids about everything'.
