Our school

The Northern Peninsula Area College is a P - 12 College with three campuses. Injinoo and Bamaga Primary Campuses have Pre-Prep to Year Six grades while the Years Seven to Twelve secondary needs are met by the Senior Campus.  All campuses are managed by a Head of Campus, with the College Principal overseeing strategic direction.

The NPA communities consist of people who identify strongly with Aboriginal culture, Torres Strait Islander culture and non indigenous culture. Many local families originate from Saibai Island and Badu Island as well as many other islands in the Torres Strait.

The people of Injinoo are descendants of the original Aboriginal people of this area, while other Aboriginal communities have strong ties with Old Mapoon near Weipa or Lockhart River. There is a regular flow of family members visiting relatives and relatives visiting from throughout the Torres Strait and other mainland centres such as Townsville, Cairns and Weipa. This makes for a variety of cultural practices, experiences and expectation.
