on the last Friday night of school term seen.
The joint Neon Disco was held at the Civic Hall under the watchful eye of
Papulu Apparr-Kari Aboriginal Corporation Remote Student and Attendance
Strategy team (RSAS – Yellow Shirts) and the Parent and Community
Engagement Team (PACE).
The event was attended by over 100 children and many parents.

support from the community was great to see.
A big thank you to all those who supported the event. A special thanks
must go to: Karen’s Kitchen, Chris Helmond, Hal Ruger, Tennant Creek

The local Yellow Shirts and PACE staff dressed in onesies and had as

IF Kevin “Bloody” Wilson and Sheryl
Crow had a love child, it would be
The 28-year-old blonde bombshell of po-
litical incorrectness, graced the Memo Club
stage last Saturday night with her sassy front
bar etiquette and a vocabulary that made
Kanye West’s performance at Glastonbury
Asians, dole bludgers, men, kids and gyn-
aecologists came in for a flogging from the
Lavington laetificate who started her stage
career as a teenage country singer before
morphing her musical talents with her acid
Around 70 odd punters looking for a good
belly laugh, some catchy tunes and dose of
obscenity therapy were not disappointed
when the star of the “Start Ya Bastard” tour
strutted her stuff in the Creek.
She even dragged some poor unsuspecting
bar fly up on stage and had him performing
like a seasoned veteran porn star, and ironi-
cally his name just happened to be Kevin.
Bloody good show I reckon.
Come again soon luv!...no pun intended.
