The National Indigenous Education and Boarding Symposium is an annual event that brings together school leaders and educators, boarding managers, policy makers and Indigenous community leaders from across Australia.

The 2019 theme of Whatever it takes! shapes the urgency of the need to address the challenges of providing relevant, safe and quality education and boarding experience for Indigenous students.

The 2019 National Indigenous Education and Boarding Symposium  featured an exciting program of keynote presentations, interactive workshops, the inaugural Indigenous Boarding Awards dinner, a rich cultural program and a special announcement at the opening night function.


This is a rare event on the calendar to interact with a diverse mix of representatives of the Indigenous Education and Boarding sector from across Australia.

If your business interacts with the boarding schools and residences then the Symposium will facilitate exposure to providers across Australia. As a peak agency we connect with multiple levels within the sector from engaging with young people and parents through to boarding staff and local, national and international leadership in this space.

In 2019 there were sponsorship opportunities for naming rights of events and awards, trade table displays and more.
