Students from across the Barkly region were recognised for their study achievements at a presentation evening held at Charles Darwin University, Tennant Creek.
More than 40 dignitaries, guests and students attended the function which recognised students from certificate studies in a variety of subjects including music, information technology, horticulture and training and assessment.
Tennant Creek Centre Manager Kate Young said the ceremony was valued by the graduates, their families and the wider community.
‘It was a great opportunity for the students to share their success and dressing up in academic dress added to the occasion,’ she said.
Pro-Vice Chancellor, Community and Access, Mr Don Zoellner travelled to Tennant Creek to present awards to attending graduates. Mr Zoellner said he enjoyed the opportunity to participate at the presentation.
‘It certainly recognised the increased skills and training in the Tennant Creek community delivered by CDU and the university’s close relationship with other local organisations,’ he said.
CDU thanks Tennant Creek High School, Tennant Creek Town Council, Julalikari Remote Employment Service, ITEC Job Network and Papulu Apparr-Kari Aboriginal Corporation for their ongoing support.
