Yolnu teachers leading WCE activities
Four very dedicated Yolngu teachers from Yirrkala School started to embed WCE activities under the service agreement into the weekly school roster. It showed how important the WCE activities were to the community, even though there were difficulties in the process of moving teacher and class schedules around.
The Yirrkala School agreed to release Yalmay Yunupingu, a degree qualified Yolŋu teacher and Senior Linguist, to coordinate the WCE activities in Yirrkala for two days a week. This was supported by the NT Department of Education and was consistent with the WCE specific signed Memorandum of Understanding between CDU and NT DoE.
