TONIGHT, FRIDAY 17 MARCH
COME AND MEET
Moore represented New South Wales under-17s while in
high school at Stanthorpe, Qld. He moved to the North
Sydney Bears in 1989 and played in the club’s reserve
grade premiership side. With a radical change of the
guard the following year, Moore and a number of other
players (ncluding long-time back-row partner David
Fairleigh) became regular first graders the following year
and propelled the club from also-rans in 1989 to finalists
Although Moore damaged a jaw at the start of that year,
he played superbly in the first semi-final win by the Bears
for 39 years against Manly, scoring two tries. Moore was
first selected in Queensland’s State of Origin side in 1992.
Moore was the sole try-scorer in the Maroons’ 5-4 win in
the second match of the series at Lang Park.
Moore was a regular selection for the maroon jersey
for three seasons and famously yelled ‘Queenslander!
Queenslander!’ in an attempt to motivate an underdog
Maroons team on their way out of the tunnel in 1995.
Moore was reacting to the fact that New South Wales
players had said they would belt the first person that
said he was a Queenslander.
THE Michael Gunner Government
additional $20 million education
investment targets preschool,
transition, secondary students
and schools with high Indigenous
The majority of funds were distributed
through a student needs based funding
model where schools decided how ad-
ditional funding will be applied.
In total Barkly Schools will share in
over $1.2 million in additional funding
flowing now where Tennant Creek High
School has the ability to maintain staff
and support programs that are a key fac-
tor in engaging students at risk.
Tennant Creek Primary School, Ale-
karenge, Alpurrurulam, Borroloola and
Canteen Creek will experience a rippling
effect across their school communities
focused on enhancing quality teaching
and learning in the classroom.
Elliott School, Epenarra and Jilkming-
gan will see critical additional funding
supporting disengaged students and to-
wards Vocational Education and Training
engaging secondary students in learning.
Kiana Primary School a small one
teacher school will see a modest increase
in their school budget for additional cur-
riculum resources while Minyerri School
will employ a local Aboriginal person
to assist with the every-day operations
of school communications and office
Murray Downs School, Neutral Junc-
tion and Newcastle Waters will realise
the opportunity for purchasing Early
Years resources to improve the delivery
of Early Childhood programs and other
much-needed educational resources for
Rockhampton Downs School will see
additional funds assist with employing
staff to work with pre-school students
in the morning session while Robinson
River School will employ an extra
teacher to enable a smaller range of ages
in the upper class supporting improved
social and curriculum outcomes.
While this school funding is from the
additional $20 million a further addi-
tional $100 was added to the base rate
for every student in NT schools.
Essentially in clear contrast to the
previous administration NT schools that
would have continued to lose funding
under CLP Government policy now have
certainty and can continue to employ
hard working teachers and support staff
in their schools.
However, there may be further changes
to funding amounts due to an increase or
decrease in student enrolments therefore
critically important parents and families
support their children’s attendance for
improving the funding model.
I am also very proud of targeted edu-
cation investments like the $6.5 million
Tennant Creek Early Childhood Inte-
grated Learning Centre providing early
childhood education, care services, child
health and family support.
There also will be $2 million per year
for alternate pathways and engagement
programs for middle-years students
in the Barkly and Katherine Regions
including sports, the arts, culture, lan-
guage, learning on country and social
emotional learning and new Families as
First Teachers programs at Jilkminggan-
Mataranka and Minyerri in the Roper
It’s important for Government to have
a vision for education and more impor-
tant taking action to achieve the vision
because it’s critical every child receives
the best possible start in life!
