The Human Pyramid Program was a four year program which ran in four remote Central Qld communities: Baralaba, Woorabinda, Eidsvold, Mount Morgan. 

Project goals were to increase student attendance at schools, provide positive learning outcomes for students and increase community engagement with schools.

The program culminated in a performance with young people from Baralaba, Woorabinda, Eidsvold, Mount Morgan and Brisbane in Yeppoon, 2015.
