Help support Wontulp-Bi-Buya College in the development of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander church and community leaders through study programs leading to awards in theology, suicide prevention, addictions management and community development.
COVID-19 has led to innovations in the ways that Wontulp courses are delivered. This has included fewer residential teaching blocks in Cairns and more regional training sessions where College staff travel to regional hubs to gather students from specific areas.
One thing is clear to College Principal the Reverend Canon Victor Joseph, for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students from remote communities, face-to-face learning remains the right approach. The College has stood up to pressure to shift to online learning because of their deep understanding of the context and situations of their students.
Wontulp-Bi-Buya College has been established on an ethos of providing culturally grounded training, led by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and delivered in an appropriate way for a diverse student cohort. More than a training provider, Wontulp is a transforming community that empowers people with the faith, vision and skills, and to be effective in building up their people, their church and their community.
Wontulp-Bi-Buya owns no buildings and operates from a converted church hall in Cairns. College principal, the Revd Canon Victor Joseph, is an important theological leader in the Anglican Church of Australia and leads the college with much enthusiasm and vision.
Please support Wontulp-Bi-Buya College in equipping Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander church and community leaders.
