Tristina Malka Winunguj

Malka is the youngest student we have ever taken into our program at the age of 13. Now at 14 years of age, Malka successfully completed Year 8 this year and has made a great start to Year 9 in 2020. Malka is from Elcho Island (Galiwin’ku) in North East Arnhem Land, although she has lived in Darwin for the last few years with her family and attended mainstream schooling.

Malka is a talented basketballer and has represented the NT in her age group. She will play football with St. Josephs Women’s U/14 or U/16 side in 2020. In 2019 she was selected to train in a U/14 Geelong Cats Academy which was a highlight for her in 2019.

Malka’s goal for this year is to improve her Maths and History at school. Her dream for the future is to finish Year 12 at Belmont High School and go to University. Let’s hope she is able to achieve that dream.
