STATEMENT 21 March 2022. "NSW Education continues to fail to provide what’s needed for Walgett students to succeed at school.

We feel like we are in a one step forward and two steps back situation in Walgett with the NSW Dept. of Education."

Dharriwaa Elders Group (DEG) releases this statement in anticipation of stories that we hear are being prepared for release this week in the Sydney Morning Herald. This week DEG is busy conducting food and water security community surveys, embedding our new Youth Program and starting up our Walgett River Rangers team while battling the Covid19 emergency. We hope journalists will find information they need from DEG here.
