She held offi ce-based position as Numeracy Project Offi cer and Manager Visible Learning, Central Australia which allowed her to engage with educational initiatives at territory and national levels before becoming the Assistant Principal at Ross Park Primary School in 2017. As Principal of the school for the past 4 years, Ms Burgess has led a fantastic team of school leaders and teachers, working with engaged parents and students from diverse cultural backgrounds. She will be taking extended leave for three months next year and will be relocating to Darwin to be closer to immediate family. Ms Burgess has loved living in Alice Springs, having explored the beautiful areas surrounding the town, participating in the great sporting and cultural opportunities but it is the people she will miss the most. Thank you Suzi - you will be missed too! Alice Springs Reptile Centre In September, Leader of the Opposition Mrs Lia Finocchiaro MLA and I visited the Alice Springs Reptile Centre. It was fascinating to talk to Rex about all things reptile and tourism, not to mention the diffi culties COVID-19 has presented to his business. It is reassuring to see these small businesses are managing to prevail in such trying times. Australian Red Cross Blood Banks are what the Australian Red Cross are known for, but they are also involved in other humanitarian pursuits around the world. In Alice Springs, the Australian Red Cross are working to develop programs to support families, women and children. Emergency management is also a focus point as they work on community preparedness for natural disasters. It was wonderful to catch up for lunch with the local Red Cross Team and hear about the work they are providing to the local community. Diwali Celebrations in Alice Springs Diwali is one of the biggest and auspicious festivals celebrated by Hindus all around the globe. The festival of lights signifi es peace and joy, the victory of good over evil and light over darkness every day and is one of the most symbolic Hindu festivals. It was an honour to be invited and to share in the Alice Springs Hindu communitys celebrations. 0 0 P PO O BoBox x 17178,8, AlAlicice e SpSpriringngs,s, N NT T 08087171 On 28 October a book heralding the history of Alice Springs Town Library was launched.
