Yipirinya School is located in Alice Springs on Central Arrernte Land and provides bi-lingual and bi-cultural education to students from Transition to Year 10. Yipirinya School was an initiative of Elders from nearby Town Camps who wanted to ensure their children were receiving education that was inclusive of their language and culture within a safe environment. Yipirinya School is the only school in Australia which teaches four Aboriginal languages including; Central and Eastern Arrente; Western Arrente; Luritja and Walpiri.
