Warburton Ranges Community is the biggest of 11 communities in the Ngaanyatjarra Lands, Gibson Desert, WA. It is 1050 km SW of Alice Springs with a population of 500 people.
Over 30 Ngaanyatjarra ladies have been involved at Warburton Remote School since November 2008, making a healthy breakfast at the for 15-30 kids each day. Many other activities have grown from this, including a catering service and literature materials based on topics Ngaanyatjarra children identify with.
The Breakfast Story Book was developed by the women using photos of their activities and early reading words from the Salisbury List.
The Breakfast Women presented a workshop at the SNAICC National Conference, which was a conference highlight for some participants. Warburton Remote School staff say having the women at the school makes it more child friendly and develops school-community relationships. The program will soon be moving into a new building, the Family Place, developed for community activities on school grounds.
