Tammy Anderson, DP, Aboriginal Education and Peta Grae, AP meet with the Aboriginal Community Liaison Officer and Indigenous parents in a Yarn Meeting to discuss upcoming events and supports for the  Indigenous parent community and their children. Discussion includes planning for a parent excursion to a site of cultural significance, a computer course for parents and the establishment of a homework centre.
The school is a co-educational primary school in a low socio-economic community in the outer south western suburbs of Sydney. All students live in social housing. Many students come from single parent families and unemployment is high. Approximately 26% of children are Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander and 17% are Pacific Islander. Other cultural groups are also represented. John Warby Public School provides many supports for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community including a cultural room for their use, strong links with Housing and Health, the local TAFE, an Indigenous student mentoring program and an  Indigenous  choir, dance and music group.
