Ms Kempe, former resident of Tennant Creek and now retired to Mt Riddock Station Satria Dyer-Darmawan was given a bespoke plaque as a result of her commitment to the people of the outback, and was the second person in the Territory to receive this award. You do these things and you dont think anything about them, theyre just part of life and you help people out and so it was really lovely, Ms Kempe said. Ms Kempe first came to the Barkly region 50 years ago to be a governess at Muckaty Station, north of Tennant Creek and since then, has continually contributed to the community and the surrounding pastoral stations through her work with many local groups and events. Its just a lifestyle, I enjoy the pastoral life, I havent been Support workers lauded CENTRAL Australian nominees and winners of the inaugural Flinders NT Supervisors awards were recognised for their outstanding contribution to student supervision within their region on Wednesday. Nominees were judged on their regular participation in the role of educator/supervisor, attention to best practices in clinical supervision and their willingness to go above and beyond to identify and meet the learning needs of students. Meg Simmons, Senior Dentist with Oral Health Services at the Flynn Drive Dental Clinic, was awarded the Outstanding Regional Supervisor Award and said the development of young professionals in the health industry was critical. A lot of students come from capital cities and they dont really know what its like to work in a small town, but by having the student placement here they get exposed to life in the town and how they work can be very interesting, Ms Simmons said. Weve had a very big success with recruiting new staff from our students who have been placed in Alice Springs. Ms Simmons said she would help mentor the students oneon-one, and helped them to develop their dentistry skills. They are in their final year and they get exposed to general dentistry but also to childrens dentistry and working with children, they have the opportunity to travel out bush and work on communities. They work with a lot of Aboriginal patients, they get to assist the visiting oral surgeons, both in our clinic and under general anaesthetic in the hospital, they get to assist our general dentists and work under general anaesthetics in hospitals. They work in the prison and generally get a wide range of exposure to general dental care, they have a lot of opportunities to diagnose problems for the patients in a supervised environment so they have the benefit of practitioners to advise them at the time. Its just been a real treat to work with the young students. Theyve all been extremely conscientious and ethical practitioners and they have added a lot to our clinic and practice. Satria Dyer-Darmawan one for the city and hustle and bustle. During her time in Central Australia, Ms Kempe has worked for the Department of Primary Industries, and has also built a strong connection with the Isolated Childrens and Parents Association (ICPA) and the Country Womens Association.
