Nonngunu Wanambi

Nonngunu Wanambi

Nonngunu was one of the first students to commence the program in 2011. Nonngunu travelled to Geelong with the other 3 lads however there was always a different pathway for Nonngunu. It was intended that he wouldn’t attend St. Joseph’s College but instead undertake a work placement as a Ranger and enrol in a basic English and maths course. The goals for him were to improve his literacy and numeracy skills whilst working and learning skills out in the workforce. Nonngunu was doing well although the pressures from home pulling him back were too strong and he succumbed and made the decision to return to Yirrkala. He spent 3 good months down here and learnt some important life skills that we hope will benefit him in the future.
