Little Yorgas is a program for Aboriginal girls in years 4 to 6 at Nulsen Primary School in Esperance. As Esperance is Noongar country the program has been given a Noongar name "Yorga" meaning Woman.
This unique program is designed to encourage and support our "Little Yorgas" with their school attendance, self-esteem, behaviour, respect and value for their culture and themselves.
The program runs once a week on a Friday afternoon by the schools Aboriginal and Islander Education Officer's (AIEO). As well as the AIEO's being a good role model teaching this program the Little Yorgas have the freedom to express and develop their own sense of self identity.
