A day, a week of mixed blessings.
As always there are difficulties with work bases and staffing. At the moment the worst problem is the biggest community, Warburton.
I will go over next week and stay a few days to help the centre and to see what is going on, what is the problem. I have asked to employ a cook, I think this will sort a number of issues.
I have for a while had a thought bubble about a training program run in each of the work bases with the schools. It has not been easy to get good information or suggestions from the schools. If I talk to the senior teacher or the head honcho in warakurna, the answer is yes we would love to participate in such a scheme but if I ask for advise or suggestions about how this would work, I get a no response, no feedback. So, I have been doing a bit of research in to this as and when I have time. To day I actually got a call back and some positive feedback.
I have arranged to meet up with this person in august and we will thrash out a concept and see where it takes us. I am feeling a bit more position about the idea now.
