9 A MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRPERSON Distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen and graduates. Thank you very much for coming along today. This is the eighth graduation ceremony of the Tiwi Islands Training and Employment Board and we have another 80 students graduating today. This graduation was made possible through the cooperation of the many stakeholders involved. Our partners in training: Batchelor Institute of Indigenous Tertiary Education and Charles Darwin University have given up their time to be here today and we thank them for the excellent training they have provided. I would also like to acknowledge Steve Sunk and his colleagues from CDU for giving up their time today to once again do the catering for us! We also need to acknowledge the ongoing commitment of the employers on the Islands who employ and train our apprentices. These employers are a crucial link to our employment strategy and without their commitment we could not achieve our goal to place our people into real jobs with real pay instead of welfare. I would like to acknowledge all the hard work of the Tiwi Islands Training and Employment staff. Our new RJCP workers have done a fantastic job getting ready for today! We now have 29 staff working across different programs and 17 of these staff are Tiwi. Also a special thanks to our donors who are listed on the back of your graduation program. Today we have demonstrated yet again what we are capable of achieving when given the opportunity to manage our own affairs. I would like to thank you all for your attendance and invite you to join the graduates for lunch. Cyril James Kerinauia ChairpersonTiwi Islands Training and Employment Board
