Abstract: Although parents and families have a significant influence on their child’s school attendance, teachers’ adoption of more culturally appropriate methods of engagement with the community is necessary. I do think the people of the remote Indigenous communities need to work in collaboration with their local schools (and vice versa) in order to make progress and positive changes to lower primary school students’ attendance.
