Warlawurru Catholic School is a K-7 primary school located on the outskirts of Halls Creek in the East Kimberley. It is part of the Broome Diocese and was opened in 1989. The school services the local Lunja Community and other areas of Halls Creek. A transient population means an ever-changing student enrolment with daily attendances currently between 40 and 60 students. The School Motto:"Ngawi ngan yura, kiningi ngan yura"-can be translated from the Jaru as meaning "Because of God's goodness our heart is good". Warlawurru Catholic School seeks to empower its students so that they may be independent and walk with dignity and joy in both Aboriginal cultures and the non-Aboriginal cultures with which they interact. Following the way of Ngawi we seek to nurture Gospel values and Aboriginal Spirituality. Warlawurru offers a broad curriculum including programs selected for their appropriateness to Indigenous Education. The Kimberley Companion to, and the WA Religious Education Guidelines, NALP (National Accelerated Literacy Program), PATHS (Promoting Alternative THinking Strategies), Bluearth (the development and integration of body, mind and spirit through participation in physical activity), and Primary Connections (Science) are all integrated into the curriculum offered.
