Mumgu-dhal tyama-tiyt is the Aboriginal name for Learning Pathways or Message Stick of Knowledge.

​These full time 6-month programs run over three days and are designed to re-engage local Indigenous students with learning. 

Mumgu-dhal tyama-tiyt comes from two Victorian Aboriginal languages: the Woiwurrung words ‘mumgu-dhal’ meaning ‘message stick-of’ in partnership with the Keeraywooroong word ‘tyama-tiyt’ meaning ‘knowledge’. Permission to use the words has been given by the Wurundjeri Council and South West Aboriginal Languages Committee.
 

Suitable for:
These courses are suitable for local Indigenous students aged between 15 and 17years of age.

Benefits of the Program
These courses aim to build learners' skills and confidence, provide personal connections, and give learners the literacy, numeracy and communications skills to a pathway to further studies, apprenticeships or employment.  This practical, hands-on program is a great way to reconnect with learning.
