TENNANT AND DISTRICT TIMES FRIDAY 30 OCTOBER 2015 7
ONCE again the Mulga community has got behind school attendance.
This week seen the families of Mulga working together to get their children
up early and off to school to have a great day of learning and fun.
There were 27 children waiting for the school bus to pick them up by 6.58
am on Wednesday morning.
These great numbers of children waiting for the bus each morning
continued all week. Well done to all involved in the early morning wake
ups - PaCE and Yellow Shirts wake up crews, the children and families for
putting in a great effort all week to ensure the kids of Mulga are up early
and going to school. We still have some children that are hard to get up in
the mornings but with a little more effort by all we hope to get them up early
and attending school. Remember going to school every day is the only way.

Mr Ferguson praised the auxiliary and volunteer
“If this fire had occurred in a major centre there would
have been at least double the firefighters called out,”
“So I’m very proud of the job done by our team.
“There was no major property loss or damage to
nearby residences and that is a big credit to the effort
they put in.”
Mr Ferguson said the cause of the fire was undeter-
mined at this stage.
He said the incident was a timely reminder to everyone
to ensure that combustible fuels in yards were cleared
as summer took hold.
“It’s already very hot and current high fire danger
conditions means it takes just one spark to start a fire,”
FROM AFAR: GARY SULLIVAN captured
this view of the fire from Two Tank Hill.

HALF CUT: NT Police, Fire and Emergency Services Minister Peter Chandler and NT
Police Commissioner Reece Kershaw cut the ribbon as R/Sergeant Adrian O’Toole and
community members look on.
THE new police station com-
plex at Arlparra was officially
opened last Thursday.
Set on the Utopia Homelands, the
new station features custodial facili-
ties (the buzz word for a lock-up),
reception, office and multifunction
room, three houses to accommodate
police officers, four visiting officers’
quarters, a storage shed and com-
NT Minister for Police, Fire and
Emergency Services Peter Chan-
dler, who travelled to Arlparra for
the opening, said the station is now
equipped with similar state-of-the-
art facilities to their metropolitan
“The new stations and the progres-
sive facilities and resources they
provide, ensures our officers are best
prepared to uphold the safety and
security of community members,”
Mr Chandler said.
“Community members should be
very satisfied with these stations and
be assured the committed policing
staff members will continue to work
hard to keep their community safe.”
The new complex was constructed
under the Commonwealth Stronger
Futures in the NT National Partner-
ship Agreement to the tune of $10
An identical complex was con-
structed at Yuendumu.
