Students from the Secondary class worked hard all week at the Trade Training Centre. They worked together to learn about many areas of construction. On the first day they each built a wall frame, learning about measuring and levelling. The favourite words they learnt were "flush, plumb and square".
They learnt how to use saws, drills and attach gyprock. On the second and third day they learnt how to tile the wall. They cut tiles to a set measurement, glued them in place and grouted the wall. A big week of learning and some very promising trades people in the making!

The majority of students at Mimili are Anangu and their first language is Pitjantjatjara or Yankunytjatjara, as this is usually the language spoken at home. The students are only formally introduced to English when they start school.

A significant factor for Anangu Communities and Schools is the transient nature of the population. The School can have students who attend for periods of days or weeks and then return to their home communities.

The Anangu people tend to live in family groups within Mimili Anangu Community or on their Homelands.
