The Charles Darwin University community in Tennant Creek held its seventh annual presentation ceremony recently with a record 77 students completing qualifications.

Tennant Creek Centre Leader Kate Young said a mixture of flexible study modes and a broad range of certificates and diplomas had contributed to a year of academic success.

“Each student had their own challenges and demands, so to complete a qualification is something each graduate and their families can be proud of,” Ms Young said.

Qualifications were presented in the areas of hospitality, automotive, arts, electro-technology, business, community services, resources and infrastructure, training and assessment, and other areas.

Ms Young said visiting lecturers from Darwin and Alice Springs had provided strong support, as had long-term local Indigenous Academic Support officer Chris Rothery and administrative officer Helen Hargraves.

“Without their combined support, very few people in Tennant would be able to access CDU training,” she said.

“It has been a good year of steady growth and one on which I anticipate we will build next year.”
