The program is currently running twice a year in Minyerri, a remote community 270km/160miles southeast of Katherine in the Northern Territory.
"Teachabout" ran its first program in 2011 with the eager Year 5s and 6s (middle School) at Minyerri School.
Terry Graham, Co-founder, Let Kids Be Kids, has spent most of his life reaching out to those in need in Australia and throughout the Pacific. M Barrett Miller, Co-founder, Let Kids Be Kids, has accompanied Mr. Graham into the outback on a number of occasions to assist his work with various "Aboriginal" tribes.
The name, "Teachabout", closely aligns with the word "tijimbat", a Kriol word from the Roper River region, which means 'teach your kids about everything'.
