Dr Bat, who has worked with the Batchelor Institute for the past six years, said CDUs Northern Institutes research project into remote education aims to identify better ways to deliver remote education. She said: Its part of a broader strategy to invest in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, to redress economic disadvantage and strengthen communities. Dr Bat said the research project is run by the Cooperative Research Centre for Remote Economic Participation, a partnership organisation led by the umbrella organisation Ninti One. She said: The project will seek to identify education models that can achieve higher school retention rates, higher quality teaching programs that recognise local needs and culture, and higher retention rates of quality teachers and principals. I will be gathering the wisdom from previous research projects and distilling what has been shared, as well as seeking to understand the very complex education systems in remote communities today. It will be the biggest project of its kind in remote communities, my dream job. Dr Bat will start at CDU in January. First in best dressed Kerryn Pattison Steve Menzies THE first application to be a grid girl for the 2012 Finke Desert Race, from University of Newcastle student Kerryn Pattison, was received hours after the quest opened on Thursday. There have been seven applications received from the East Coast, Perth, Darwin and Alice Springs. Ms Pattison, 19, is studying to be a primary school teacher and has worked for a couple of years as a model doing promotional work and bartending. It was while working at a bar with friend Maddy Fowler, a 2011 grid girl, that Ms Pattison got excited about the race. She said: I had seen the pictures of the grid girls, who looked great, and the race on the web. Maddy said just go for it and I sent in an application but it was two weeks early so I had to count down the days and do it again on Thursday. I have been a grid girl at Bathurst but Finke is out of the ordinary and I am excited about the different ex perience if I am selected. Being a grid girl is an honour and with it comes the responsibility of representing Australias biggest events. Finke is one of the biggest races in sport. Its the adrenaline and the excitement of the rush of the off-road bikes and cars. This is the 10th year there have been grid girls for the classic desert race and the Memo Club has come on board as the naming rights sponsor for 2012 Memo Club Finke Desert Race Grid Girls. n Centralians who want to apply to be a grid girl c a n g o o n l i n e t o www.finkedesertrace.com.au or go to the open signon session at the Memo Club from 10am to 1pm on Saturday, December 17 where there will be a professional photographer to take the necessary portfolio pictures.
