No Gonski 2.0 in the bush

Funding the NT's remote schools the same as those in Canberra is ignoring the vastly different needs, writes TABBY FUDGE (pictured), President of the NT Council of Government School Organisations.

 

Gonski dollars don't add up for NT schools

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

 

It is obvious the sums do not add up in favour of the Territory signing up to the Gonski education reforms, writes Chief Minister Adam Giles.

Labor would spend as much on a third set of footy oval lights as it would on the rest of Alice

 

The Territory Government, if re-elected next week, will spend as much on a third set of lights for Traeger Park as it will for the rest of the town.

Announcing election promises for Central Australia, Chief Minister Paul Henderson said in Alice Springs today it will cost $2.5m to upgrade the lights to broadcasting standard, so that AFL games such as the Indigenous All Stars can be broadcast nation-wide.

The same amount will be paid to the Town Council for the enhancement of the CBD and community parks.
