Aurukun State School opened in 1974 and remains the only school in Aurukun. We cater for almost 200 Pre-Prep to secondary students. Our school is also known locally as Koolkan Aurukun Community School.
We acknowledge the traditional owners of the land, the Wik and Kugu People. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging. We recognise their connection to Country and their role in caring for and maintaining Country. We acknowledge that the education of children has occurred on this land for tens of thousands of years. May their continuing strength and wisdom be with us.
