RSAS & PaCE teams train over school break
Posted on: 2 October 2020, 11:27am
The Remote Student Attendance Strategy (RSAS) and Parent and Community engagement (PaCE) teams took a well-earned break from dealing with the parents and children from the Barkly regional schools this week with the start of the school holidays.
But there is no rest for these hard-working members who will undertaking training on Indigenous Money Health and Mental Health to enhance their skills in dealing with the many issues they encounter during their work day.
Staff from Tennant Creek, Canteen Creek, Elliott and Ali Curung will be attending the training which is arranged by the National Indigenous Australians Agency (NIAA) and delivered NESA People Solutions.
Prior to the end-of-school term, PAK teams arranged for supplies to be dropped off at communities for barbecues and breakfasts to be held to ensure children who attend school regularly have a well-deserved feed and some were lucky enough to receive rewards for great attendance.
Congratulations to Elliott School students for doing so well and having over 20 children reaching 80 per cent attendance or more.
A big thank you to our most senior worker, Alma Dick, who makes sure the children of Tennant Creek Primary School get their hearty breakfasts each morning.
