Dimathaya Burarrawanga

Dimathaya commenced the program at the very beginning in April 2011. He was one of the first four students to be part of the Marrma’ Rom Two Worlds Foundation. Dimathaya displayed great potential at school and did very well in his English classes. Dimathaya previously did attend St. John’s College in Darwin so being away from home was not new to him. Unfortunately for him he damaged his knee quite badly playing in a game of football for St. Mary’s. After some intensive physio and appointments at the hospital to try to plan a knee reconstruction, Dimathaya decided to go back to Yirrkala. It was a disappointing end for him and for his family as they had been really keen for him to complete his education in Geelong. Dimathaya returned to his community towards the end of 2011 and is now working. He startedplaying music with some other lads from Yirrkala and formed a band ‘Easy Five’. He has also since become a father. We wish Dima and his family all the best for the future.
