developing long lasting benefits for future learning
The Families as First
Teachers (FaFT) aims

supportive learning journey for
future progression of children
living in remote areas and:
» strengthens parents
knowledge about child
development from birth to
three years old

literacy activities in a fun and
» creates a friendly
environment which embraces
culture, identity and
everybody’s learning needs
» is embraced by Indigenous
families and provides rewards
to all community members.

David Ross said the applica-
tion was submitted in 2011 in
response to exploration license
“The traditional owners were
concerned about the protection
of sites and wanted to have a say
over exploration on their coun-
try,” he said.
“The court’s determination will
recognise the groups’ traditional
rights to hunt, gather and fish as
well as to conduct cultural activi-
ties, meetings and ceremonies on
“It will also secure their right
to negotiate over any future acts
such as exploration and mining.
“These rights will co-exist
with the pastoral leases which
will continue to be run as cattle

A WOMAN from Tennant Creek
has been selected to join a presti-
gious leadership program.
Barkly Regional Arts’ (BRA) Kathy
Burns (pictured), has received a scholar-
ship with the Australian Rural Leader-
ship Program (ARLP).
The Artistic Director from the arts or-
ganisation says she can’t wait to start the
course that will see her travel throughout
the country and to Indonesia.
Kathy is amongst 30 leaders from di-
verse industries, sectors and communities
to take part in the course, reputed to be
one of Australia’s premier leadership
Beginning in August, the first stop will
be an experiential session at the Kimber-
leys in Western Australia.
Over the next 15 months, Kathy will
be involved in immersions in regional
communities, Canberra’s political scene,
online learning and a visit to Indonesia.
She is the first person from Tennant
Creek to receive an ARLP scholarship
and the very first person from the arts
sector, thanks to the Australia Council for
the Arts coming on board as a sponsor.
Australia Council for the Arts Chief
Executive Officer Tony Grybowski said
the Council was pleased to partner with
ARLP on the successful leadership pro-
gram as it was an important part of their
commitment to supporting a vibrant arts
sector in rural Australia.
“The Australian Rural Leadership
Foundation has an impressive track
record in nurturing Australia’s most
promising and gifted leaders and I am
pleased that our inaugural arts leader-
ship scholarship has been awarded to
Kathy,” he said.
BRA Executive Officer Alan Murn said
inclusion of the arts sector into ARLP
was itself an overdue recognition of the
impact of the arts sector in regional and
“To have Kathy as the national repre-
sentative is a wonderful tribute to the
Barkly Region,” he said.
“Everyone at BRA is extremely proud
of the work Kathy has achieved on a
local level and to have her represent
the Barkly, and in particular Barkly Re-
gional Arts, on a national level is very
