Abstract:

This report is a scoping study commissioned by The Fred Hollows Foundation in collaboration with the Jawoyn Association. It is the first stage of what is envisaged as a long-term project aimed at enhancing health, education and employment outcomes in the Katherine region through a community literacy program. The focus of this study is the Aboriginal community of Wugularr (also known as Beswick), located on country belonging to the Bagula clan of the Jawoyn people, 120 kilometres south of the regional centre of Katherine. The original research carried out by John Taylor and Neil Westbury provided a range of baseline demographic and employment data that are relevant to this study. One of the aims of this study is to update these data where possible and to augment them with additional quantitative information (e.g. about student performance) where it is available. These baseline data are intended to provide a series of contemporary snapshots which can be used by community members to assess their situation, identify needs and gauge future progress. In terms of data, the study focuses on 2002 and where available, data from previous years is used to provide some tracking of changes. The second aim of the study is to map out community perceptions of literacy and community aspirations for literacy through a series of community consultations. Third, the study provides case studies of perceptions about the role of government and other agencies in relation to education and literacy, and their aspirations and aims for increasing literacy levels.
