AEU NT Comments On Umbakumba Violence Nothing New

Comments made by Jarvis Ryan, the AEU NT President about violence at Umbakumba would hardly be news to the Education Department. Umbakumba has had ongoing violence for decades, sure it comes in fits and starts but it has been ongoing.

Usually the Education Department will blame the teachers. It must be the poor programing or not having posters on the classroom walls that has caused the violence. The Department would even blame the teacher if the classroom wall was not there because vandals ripped it out.

As for Local Decision Making, it is yet another symbolic policy that the NT Government will pretend is working.

Umbakumba has one advantage, the violence makes a great cover for corruption in the school.

OK kids get out your knives and start chopping up your desks!

Perhaps Tony Considine has a great program on knife making and stabbing that will get the kids to school? Just sayin.

THE NT EDUCATION DEPARTMENT WILL NEVER ADDRESS THE REALITY OF VIOLENCE AND CORRUPTION IN NT SCHOOLS

The Human Write-Offs Of The NT

And so we chuck another human being on the scrapheap, yes we write them off like a crashed car. Hopefully they will crawl away into obscurity even better still die. Problem solved!

Here is a de-identified extract from some sentencing remarks from 2021 in the NT.

While s/he was enrolled at many schools across the Top End, s/he rarely attended. S/He cannot read and write and her/his grasp of English is poor, mostly learned from other prisoners. The offender has never been gainfully employed.

Seems the attendance programs really worked for this young person. They really engaged! Congratulations to Karen Weston and Tony Considine.

Perhaps of our readers are now understanding why corruption in schools is no laughing matter.

How Many Disengaged Students Did Alf Leonardi Help?

It is something of an irony to read that Alf Leonardi creates a link between the Darwin Turf Club grandstand “rort” and the Milingimbi School “ripoff”. After leaving his master Michael Gunner’s Chief Ministers Department Leonardi returned to his old stomping ground in the Education Department. According to a newsletter titled EngageMeNT – Issue 2 Tony’s Message it is stated that Alf Leonardi was leading a team to engage indigenous students and get them back at school. LINK 1

It must have been a bit of a let down for Leonardi after being such a “high flyer” in the Chief Ministers Department, talk about a fall from grace. But we guess Alf had to put his favourite wine and foie gras on the table.

Leonardi getting kids to school? Doubt it! Perhaps he used some of the alleged methods of former Milingimbi Principal Jennifer Lea Sherrington to massage the attendance figures? Just sayin.

Gunner Hijacked

Michael Gunner was recently hijacked. During a staged press conference at Karama Shopping Centre Gunner had to retreat to his car and speed off when June Mills hijacked the proceedings. This technique works well when you have advance notice of where our politicians will be.

Hijacking a Press Conference

Great move by June Mills. Congratulations.

“Are you insane?”

Chief Minister Michael Gunner cops a spray from Larrakia woman June Mills

NT News 24/10/2018

CHIEF Minister Michael Gunner faced a hostile reception at a press conference in Karama this afternoon.

Mr Gunner was at the Karama shops with local member Ngaree Ah Kit and Larrakia Nation boss Robert Cooper to promote his Government’s new plan to target anti-social behaviour.

But the press conference was gatecrashed by Larrakia elder June Mills, who gave the Chief Minister a lengthy spray about law and order, fracking and grog policy.

Ms Mills said the Gunner Government’s policy of putting cops on bottlos was a “continued criminalisation” of Aboriginal people.

Mr Gunner took the bollocking from Ms Mills quietly until he was ushered into a waiting car and driven off.
