Thanks for reaching out, and apology for the delay in answering. A few students have similar questions to yours, and we’ve responded to them here and here.
I found this excellent resource to help you find the stats regarding the schools in Cairns.
I’d love to know which specific project opportunity you are working on so I can better understand your questions’ context.
PS. EWB maintains this Discussion Forum, and we typically reach out to our community partner (Dawul Wuru) regarding student enquiries if we assess that their input is required.
All the best,
EWB Australia acknowledges the traditional custodians of country throughout Australia and recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and community. We pay our respects to them, their cultures and their land; to Elders both past and present; and to emerging leaders. We recognise that the Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people never ceded sovereignty of what we call Australia.
