Vision & Mission

The print, Terra Aequilibrium is used as a guide for the culture of Tiwi College. The ochre markings represent Indigenous country, the blue – non-Indigenous country. Both come together in the middle – a path used by both cultures moving into the future, in the spirit of parity and equality. This guides the Tiwi College approach at all levels. Tiwi and non-Tiwi work with one another, with respect shown to all cultures. We are here to learn from one another in order to move forward to a future of mutual trust and understanding; where "both worlds" are recognised and respected.
