SUNDAY OCTOBER 27 2019 NEWS 07 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA Teachers get top nod THE unsung heroes of NTs education system have been recognised at the annual Teaching in the Territory Awards. Educators from across the Territory attended awards ceremonies held in Darwin, Alice Springs, Nhulunbuy, Katherine and Tennant Creek on World Teachers Day. The award for the NTs Principal of the Year went to Brenda Jolley from Larapinta Primary School. The titles for NT Primary and Secondary Teacher of the Year went to Dane Russell from Wagaman Primary School and Chin Huan from Tennant Creek High School respectively. Gunbalanya Schools Hagar Nadjamerrek was named Aboriginal Educator of the Year and Jingili Primary Schools Larelle Gilbert won Special Educator of the Year. Rate cuts no use: Keating PAUL Keating has weighed in on the economic debate, telling the Morrison government to drop its promise of a surplus and stimulate growth as monetary policy has run its race. The former Labor prime minister and treasurer has told the Weekend Australian the quest for a surplus should not be regarded as sacrosanct. Instead, the government should embark on productivity-enhancing infrastructure spending and turbocharge vocational educational training. Monetary policy has run its race. There is no more that central banks can do, Mr Keating told the newspaper yesterday. Even if the Reserve Bank of Australia moved into the Australian version of quantitative easing, the impact would be so economically marginal as to be not worth doing. Hildas a big hit for our Jessica KATHY MCCABE GIRL power rules the Australian music charts this week with Jessica Mauboy debuting at No. 1 with her Hilda album and global pop force Tones and I landing for the 13th week on the ARIA singles summit. Its the first time Mauboy has achieved a No. 1 with a record of all new songs. She did create chart history three years ago when the Secret Daughter soundtrack became the first album by an indigenous artist to debut on top of the ARIA album charts but it featured mostly covers. Its always been the dream for this album to connect with people, and for Hilda to be at the top of the charts is so special to me, Mauboy said. I love Tones so sharing this with her is triple times sweeter. The deeply personal album was inspired by the stories of her family unlocked during an emotional homecoming trip to Darwin in the quest to discover more about her grandmother Hilda. Mauboys middle name was in honour of the woman she never met, whose life was cut tragically short by an accident at a party. Well, I think if music means as much to them as it does to me as they have seen the ins and outs of me making music over the years and understand how much this means to make it to #1 and to share what music does to people, Mauboy said. This record is a dedication to all the women in my family, to my grandmother and mother for being fierce and strong and how they have helped me to pursue this life and become a woman. I am because of them. The song, which has more than half a billion song and video streams globally, has now equalled Ed Sheerans Shape of You, Coolios Gangsta Paradise and Despacito from Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber to spend 13 consecutive weeks at No. 1 It is rare for two Australian artists to claim No. 1 on the ARIA singles and albums charts in the same week. Jessica Mauboy has scored an album No.1 with all original songs based on her familys women and their history Picture: JAMES GOURLEY/THE SUNDAY TELEGRAPH Contact us on: 08 8981 6868 or info@peewees.com.au WATERFRONT RESTAURANT AND FUNCTION COMPLEX IN DARWIN
