Education: Alice must lift its game.

Our first FOOD FOR THOUGHT panel member is
Kemy Ogendi
Year 10 student who blitzed the recent Desert Knowledge Q&A with her incisive description of generational conflict – and harmony – in The Alice.

In the spirit of Christmas, people are having parties. Many families, schools and workplaces are getting together to look back on the year that’s been, reward people for their efforts and perhaps, make amends for past mistakes. That is how a community moves forward and the same can be said for Alice Springs. Forums and meetings give us a chance to collectively examine the condition of this town. Events and celebrations bring people together from all across the community for one common, positive cause. Diversity in the citizens of Alice Springs is strength we need to build upon by having such gatherings all year round.
From a student’s perspective, Alice Springs has a weakness in its education. While many schools, resources and staff are of great quality, we cannot ignore the fact that we, in the Northern Territory, have lower performance standards than the rest of Australia. If we want our Alice "up to speed" now and in the years to come, we need to secure a sound future, academically, for the next generation. Thank you to the many already striving to do so. All of Alice needs to join the continual effort to bring every one of its students to their full potential.
So those are two ways in which Alice Springs could look to improve; more community events all year round and a solid effort towards educating the next generation.
With that said, here’s to the future!
“Happy Christmas to all, and to all good-night!”
