ALC 15 year Strategic Plan 6. Goal B: Develop Best Practice Service Delivery 85 ACTIONS: 88. Hold regular mine closure planning meetings with GEMCO to discuss what assets should be made available into the future and how to ensure these are well maintained and ready for future use. 89. Conduct a financial analysis to consider appropriate facilities to be developed within Alyangula versus current Anindilyakwa communities to be utilised by Anindilyakwa people after the mine closes. 90. Construct a major new jetty at the town beach picnic area (Old Boat Ramp) to service a local fishing, aquaculture and tourism industry post mining. 6.8 REBUILD ANGURUGU SCHOOL The physical environment of Angurugu School is a remnant of the 60s and 70s days of alcohol and petrol sniffing violence. A large program of rebuilding and refurbishment needs to be established. Youth in Angurugu have stated that they dont like to go to school because students from the other moiety (there are two on Groote Eylandt) tease and bully them. These non-attending students feel shamed by their illiteracy when they do attend the facility. It is recommended that infrastructure be planned around a more appropriate separation of moieties and sensitive to clan rivalries. There is also a strong logic to consider taking the classroom out to the clan housing enclaves to take the school to the students. There is also a view growing in the community that a residential college be established away from Angurugu for Year 5 and 6 students to break a generational lack of support to attend school. A potential site could be the current outstation area in Thompsons Bay being developed as a cultural camp area for youth from Umbakumba.
