Students shine at Exit Art 27 Feb 2014
Exit Art showcases outstanding contemporary artwork created by NT Certificate of Education and Training senior students from government and non-government schools across the Territory. The artworks of 31 students are being showcased as part of this annual exhibition at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory. The exhibition features paintings, drawings, photography, sculptures, mixed media and printing techniques. Now in its 21st year, the exhibition enables us to glimpse the work from students’ eyes. It captures their unique ideas, influences and experiences, and provides a refreshing look at their motivations and inspirations. The exhibition is open to the public until 8 June 2014.
Have your say about a new Education Act for the Territory 27 Feb 2014
The Northern Territory Government is reforming the Education Act because it is outdated and no longer provides an adequate framework for delivering high quality, contemporary education to develop each student’s potential and maximise their educational achievement. A Discussion Paper has been released for consultation, as a first step in developing a new Education Act. No decisions have been made about what will be in a new Act. Parents, teachers, principals, students and other interested people are encouraged to comment on the ideas in the Discussion Paper and suggest other ideas to assist in developing a new Act. To obtain the Discussion Paper or to find out how to make a submission, visit www.education.nt.gov.au/educationact, e: firstname.lastname@example.org or ph: 08 8999 5648. Submissions to the Discussion Paper close on Wednesday 16 April 2014.
