Djaaliny – Community Learning Program

Coeducation is education for life. Naturally

All Saints’ College is delighted to present Djaaliny – our community learning program. Launched in 2014, Djaaliny aims to provide the College and wider community with access to a range of local, national and international guest speakers and presenters across a variety of current and thought-provoking topics.

Djaaliny (Noongar for “flame”) creates the spark that lights a fire of curiosity, that kindles supportive partnerships and, importantly, flames lifelong learning.
