As term three commences it is pleasing to see almost 40 new teachers join our classrooms across the Territory, with more than half joining our remote schools including Ntaria, Jilkminggan, Ramingining, Amoonguna, Larapinta, Katherine, Canteen Creek and Tennant Creek. Welcome!
In this edition, we mark the opening of a spacious and modern new preschool in Alpurrurulam and launch Rising Star, an innovative new web series designed to engage families as their children’s first and most important teachers.
Rising Star is the first educational children’s program designed specifically for Aboriginal children and I encourage you to visit www.risingstar.nt.edu.au to watch the latest episodes.
I look forward to seeing you at Garma Festival next week to talk about how we can best build on the progress we have made to date under the Indigenous Education Strategy.
