THE Department of Education was awarded a
Certificate of Recognition at the Defence Re-
serve Support Council NT/K Employer Sup-
port Awards night recently.
Sergeant Pam Dillon, who accepted the award on
behalf of her employer, said the award recognised the
Department Education’s support for her to take leave
to attend army training.
“The Department realises that skills I gain through the
army will benefit many areas of my job, schools and
students in my role as Barkly Region Sports Coordina-
tor,” she said.
Sgt Dillon said being a Supportive Employer meant
you became a part of a group of organisations who of-
fer their support to Reservists, who would thank you
whether they work for you now or in the future.
Tennant Creek supportive employers include Barkly
Regional Council, Remote Concrete NT, Karen’s
Kitchen, Top of the Town Café and the Department of
Education Barkly Region.
You don’t have to become a Reservist to become a
supportive employer, but if you do sign up and employ
a reservist, you will get:
• A great employee who brings Reservist skills to
• A free listing as a Supportive Employer online and
in our publications for everyone to see.
• If eligible, financial support when a Reservist you
employ is called for service.
• Opportunities for first-hand experiences of Reservist
training in an Australian Defence Force environment.
• Ongoing support from Defence Reserves Support
State and Territory offices.
If you’re interested in becoming a supportive employ-
er, contact Chris Cates at email@example.com

BARKLY artist Lindy Brodie
has been selected as a final-
ist in the coveted 2018 Galli-
poli Art Prize.
Her acrylic-on-canvas work titled
‘Going from Alroy Downs to Bor-
roloola (Anzac Day)’ depicts army
vehicles crossing the Barkly Table-
lands on training exercises.
Lindy said the work was a homage
to the Australian army that always
played an important role in build-
ing works on her country, sharing
their knowledge and promoting
their values within her childhood
Lindy has been invited to attend
the finals announcement in Sydney
where the 33 finalist works will be
on public display.
She said her painting was inspired
by childhood memories of watch-
ing army trucks cross her country
during training exercises.
“I remember watching the soldiers
train out in the bush near Alroy
Downs,” she said.
“I remember seeing them practis-
ing hiding in the bushes and shoot-
ing at each other.
“They had paint in their guns.
“I was ten-years-old at the time.
At that age, I didn’t know what was
going on. I wasn’t sure if there was
a war or if it was training. I had no
clue what was going on.”
Lindy won’t be able to attend the
presentation next Wednesday but
she said she would love to see the
works of other artists.
The winning painting will be ac-
quired by the Gallipoli Memorial
Club where it will be displayed at
its Circular Quay premises.
Now in its 30th year, the Gallipoli
Art Prize is open to Australian, New
Zealand and Turkish artists.
