2018 Wurrumiyanga Men’s Activities
This year Tony Furness and his mens crew have been well underway with the courses and training preparing them for the working fields.
This year the farm participants started the year off with a 2 week course that taught the participants various tasks. From what to plant, where to plant it and when to harvest. Controlling of pets, proper watering and care were also taught.
Trainer Don has been showing the guys how to draw up piping plans where they learnt how to set a nursery.
The outdoor crew have been very busy with the community tidy up and helping make our community look fantastic. We thank these men for helping to make a difference. The timber productions will be back in construction shortly and we cannot wait to see what the next project will be.
Robert Cunningham and his special projects team have commenced milling timber last last week. The men will start to get a stock pile together in the coming weeks so that the men who have previously taken part in the Certificate II in Timber productions can continue making furniture.
2018 is looking to be a great year with heaps of great opportunities arising for the Tiwi people and the communities on the islands.
This year the men can look forward to taking part in the Wood Lathe course where they will be constructing pens and bowls, Fisheries courses in the dry season, white card training, first aid courses and driver training.
We look forward to seeing the production lines of the Wurrumiyanga Mens activities and following their journeys through TITEB.
