Kip McGrath has begun working with the CEO Laurie Perry and the Wonnarua Board to help create a community literacy and numeracy profile. The report will help to determine whether the members of Wonnarua Nation need additional support to help them succeed at school or to gain basic literacy and numeracy skills to open more opportunities for tertiary studies or employment. The WNAC CEO Laurie Perry is working tirelessly to explore ways to help members of the Wonnarua Nation access educational funds to improve their educational achievements.

To help identify the educational needs of the Wonnarua Nation, Kip McGrath has been endorsed by the Board to assess each school aged member of the Nation. The educational assessment will test reading, spelling, maths and comprehension. The results will then be provided to the parents, carers, the CEO and the Wonnarua Board. The Board will then be able to use these results to determine whether remedial tuition would help to lift the standard of literacy and numeracy in the Nation.

A Letter will be sent out to Nation Members, and Kip McGrath will contact them to discuss if they want to be involved. For more information, open the PDF below:

The Upper Hunter coal industry recognises that as it has grown, it has brought both benefits and impacts. In response, the region’s coal producers – Anglo American, Ashton Coal Operations, BHP Billiton Mt Arthur Coal, Bloomfield Collieries, Coal & Allied, Muswellbrook Coal, Peabody Energy Australia, Vale Australia, and Xstrata Coal – commenced the Upper Hunter Mining Dialogue to get a better understanding of the community‟s concerns and to work together to address the challenges identified in a recent stakeholder survey.
