Milikapiti School is a safe and happy place for learning.
Around 80 children attend school at Milikapiti School. Over the past year, the community has been heavily involved in the development of Milikapiti School values.
Conversations have been based on the understanding that the kids of today are the Tiwi leaders of tomorrow. The community knows what is important and what sort of adults we want our students to grow into.
Our school values are:
- Be positive;
- Be respectful; and
- Be smart.
While attendance is pretty good, there are a few things that stop kids from coming to school, such as possum-hunting at night which means they’re up late. On school nights, kids need to get to bed a bit earlier so they have a good sleep and come to school ready to learn.
