Thanksgiving evening in Nhulunbuy

Fabulous grazing food at the thanksgiving evening in Nhulunbuy

Flinders NT Nhulunbuy hosted an event to celebrate the contribution made by clinicians throughout East Arnhem Land in 2018.

Associate Professor Narelle Campbell and Dr Sarah Chalmers spoke to those gathered and acknowledged their exceptional contributions. They highlighted the importance of this work across all the student programs and how ultimately those being honoured contribute to better student learning experiences. They create opportunities for students to experience working in a remote setting and make for a well prepared and trained workforce for the future.

Chloe Lyons from CareFlight was recently awarded Outstanding Regional Supervisor (Top End Nursing) and Commitment to Clinical Teaching (Nursing) by Flinders NT.

As part of the evening, clinicians were presented with t-shirts commissioned from artist Djalinda Yunupingu Ulamari. Djalinda’s commissioned design was transferred to a 100% organic, ethically made and manufactured garment sourced by Bulpul Indigenous Designs Australia. The limited print run is an ongoing identification of the recipient’s contribution during the 2018 period. A truly unique gift and wonderful celebration.
