In collaboration with the Northern
Territory Department of Correctional
Services (NTDCS), Batchelor Institute
of Indigenous Tertiary Education staff
in Alice Springs recently delivered a
blended Certificate I in Conservation
and Land Management and Certifi-

of 19 pre-release male prisoners.
This is just another example of the successful
educational partnership between NTDCS and
All students worked on site at the Batchelor
Institute, Desert Peoples Centre (DPC) Cam-
pus, Alice Springs.
As part of the Conservation and Land Man-
agement (CLM) training, the students used
basic machinery and equipment to further
landscape the area outside the Conservation
and Land Management (CLM) building at the
northern end of the campus.
This was then broken up with time spent with
the Foundations Skills lecturer on the southern
side of the Campus where the students used
iPads to take video and still images of plants
The students have utilised the library daily
and engaged in their learning very success-
‘The education and training programs
provided the students with a strong focus on
‘hands-on’ landscaping work,” CLM Lecturer
Michael Walters said.
“Some of the electives count towards the
Certificate II in CLM if students would like
to continue studies.
“I am pleased to see the commitment of the
students in the project based learning, which
included support from Foundation Skills train-
ers around written work.’
Students have gained hands on skills in
areas such as:
• Work Health and Safety
• Maintaining the workplace
• Assisting with landscape construction
(installing flexible paving with steel edging)
• Operating basic machinery and equipment
• Planting Central Australian native trees
• Installing automated drip irrigation systems
• Installation of organic and rock mulches.
As part of the collaboration, Centre for Ap-
propriate Technology (CAT) delivered White
Card Training to 16 of the students in the last
two weeks of the program.
This gives all participants white card ac-
creditation in preparation for any employment
they may be successful in gaining upon their

Wellbeing to 10 women at the Alice Springs

ANYINGINYI Health Aboriginal
Corporation, along with the sup-
port of CatholicCare NT and
Lifestyle Solutions, will be cel-
ebrating National Aboriginal and
Torres Strait Islander Children’s
Day next Tuesday 4 August.
Children’s Day is a day for Aboriginal
and Torres Strait Islander families to
celebrate the importance that family,
culture, and community plays in our
children’s development and wellbeing.
It’s a day to help our kids stand tall and
feel connected and proud.
This year’s theme is Little People, Big
It is also about supporting and celebrat-
ing the services that empower our little
kids to have big futures, and ensuring
these services are adequately funded so
that we can provide security for the next
generation of our kids.
We know that Aboriginal and Torres
Strait Islander community-led services
provide improved development and
education outcomes for our children;
they’re more effective in creating safe
and welcoming environments that engage
our families and connect them to the
service supports they need.
This year’s Children’s Day theme aims
to provide a space for everyone to come
together to celebrate the achievements
of these services and the families and
children they support.
We welcome any service providers
and community members to come along
to Anyinginyi Sports and Rec Centre
on Tuesday 4 August at 3pm to help us
celebrate our children with lots of fun
Ensuring our children thrive is every-
body’s business. Make sure you’re a part
of Children’s Day this year.

people’s big futures
Paralympic champion launches
Desert Harmony Festival today
A THREE-time Paralympic Gold Medallist will be in
Tennant Creek today and tomorrow as the face of
this year’s Desert Harmony Arts and Culture Festi-
Kurt Fearnley (pictured) has competed in four Paralympics
as a wheelchair racer and is currently training for the games
in Rio next year.
In his spare time he has crawled along the Great Wall of China,
completed the Kokoda track, won world marathons and sailed
with a winning Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race crew.
Kurt is proof that a disability is no object to great success and
he’s looking forward to spreading that message throughout
“I’m really looking forward to engaging with people in Tennant
Creek,” he told the Tennant Times this week.
“There’s lots going on and I can’t wait to be a part of it all.”
Kurt, who comes from a small town in NSW, will be in Ten-
nant to help promote the National Disability Insurance Scheme
(NDIS) which is a major sponsor of this year’s Desert Harmony,
given the Barkly is one of the national trial sites.
He is a member of its independent advisory council.
“Disability is not an illness and the NDIS aims to make sure
things run as smoothly as possible for those with a disability,”
“We’re trying to make sure we have an enabled population of
people with disabilities and that’s why it’s important that the
NDIS is rolled out successfully.”
Anne Skordis, a senior official with the NDIS, will also be here.
