Type of paper: Abstract refereed

This research carried out for a PhD thesis submitted and achieved in 2016; assessed conditions for Aboriginal students who are achieving sound academic outcomes. Understanding these conditions provides tools for appropriate strategies to raise educational outcomes for Aboriginal students. The best way of ascertaining conditions which support high academic outcomes is from the students themselves along with their immediate stakeholders; student's parents, teachers, principals, and Aboriginal staff. This research sought to provide a voice for Aboriginal students and their stakeholders to elucidate their perceptions of the conditions which contribute to Aboriginal students' sound academic outcomes.
