Melbourne Indigenous Transition School

The Melbourne Indigenous Transition School (MITS) is an independent residential transition school in Richmond, Victoria, for Indigenous students from remote and regional communities in Australia.

Each year, 22 boys and girls in Year 7 go to MITS for one year. MITS believes that wellbeing is central to the continuing success of its students, and tailors its programs to reflect this philosophy.

After a year of accelerated academic learning, intense wellbeing support, and orientation to life in Melbourne, the MITS students move onto scholarships at excellent Melbourne schools to continue their secondary schooling through to Year 12.

For four years now, SSCBC has welcomed MITS students and graduates to a day on the water with SSCBC Members. Visiting SSCBC has very quickly become a valued and highly anticipated activity early in the school year for new MITS students and also their graduate students.
