The Kimberley Training Institute (KTI) Halls Creek campus graduation ceremony was held at the campus on Friday 22 March. It was the first time KTI held an official graduation in Halls Creek.

KTI Regional Manager Rosemary Taffinder said that the support from community and town was outstanding. “Both the students, staff and the community really appreciated being able to have a graduation in Halls Creek. It was a terrific opportunity to acknowledge the students and the hard work they put into completing their qualifications” she said.

The KTI Halls Creek campus student of the year prize, sponsored by the Wunan Foundation was awarded to Marlene Skeen, a General Education student. Marlene was nominated by her lecturer Madeleine Bromley because of her commitment to her studies and her ability to take challenges in her stride. She participates fully in class activities, is consistent in her attendance and her work is always well thought out and nearly presented.

Graduates were from a variety of industry fields including Bilingual Work, Indigenous Environmental Health, Horticulture and Art.
