Why Deadly Ed?
Originating from teaching backgrounds, we’ve witnessed first-hand a growing struggle for schools and organisations to deliver authentic Aboriginal Education for their students, staff and wider community members.
Our mission is to ensure anyone, in any location, can get access to quality and authentic Aboriginal Education.
With our team of experienced staff located across the NSW coast, we provide high-quality programs, experiences, resources and advice for all ages and sectors
