ALC 15 year Strategic Plan 6. Goal B: Best Practice Service Delivery 60 that the message: These are essential learning steps and strategies to compensate for deafness and language learning difficulties, is not adequately getting through to all of the school community. BILINGUAL CURRICULUM-BASED LEARNING The community consultations have advocated for school curriculum to be bilingual. Anindilyakwa is the first language of youth and strong evidence supports English to be taught alongside the native language to yield optimal results. A bilingual literacy and numeracy program must be made available starting in early childhood right through to schooling, training and employment. The ALNF Early Literacy and Language program has developed tandem resources in Anindilyakwa to facilitate successful reading development in both English and Anindilyakwa in a manner that addresses hearing loss and learning challenges. The tandem resources provide a solid bilingual reading and writing foundation. ACTIONS: 36. Closely review and monitor education data on an ongoing basis. 37. Establish improved governance including the possible creation of independent schools 38. Establish a bilingual-based learning curriculum 39. Build on the strong start already provided in the ALNF Early Literacy and Language Program and link this in with an enhanced Groote Eylandt Linguistics Centre capacity to develop community-based capacity in bilingual educational and pre-employment support programs 40. Establish a link with community cultural centres and school learning curriculum 41. Implement the ALC Strategic Plan school-training-employment strategy 42. Work with community health centres and schools to address the difficulties associated with hearing impairment and learning 43. Investigate and learn from the success of residential school facilities across Australia, with the view to establishing an on-island residential school for Year 5 and 6 Anindilyakwa students 44. Lobby for a rebuild of Angurugu School 45. Complete school teacher houses in Angurugu 46. Conduct a summit on Substance Misuse and carry out identified actions.
