Lauren Moss MLA, Member for Casuarina, joined us for the Certificate II in Music Graduation recently. This was the second of five graduation ceremonies held this year.
"It was wonderful to see the students I had met earlier in the year complete this course. Their original songs were performed beautifully and the action dance was very moving. Well done!" said Lauren.
Two more graduations are scheduled for November. Certificate I will be held on November 6 and Certificate II in Media on the 13th.
Our largest group of Certificate III Graduates
Another record was established when 38 students graduated with a Certificate III in Theology on 30 October.
Awards were presented by the heads of churches or their representatives: Anglican Bishop Greg Anderson, Catholic Vicar General Father Malcolm Fyfe and Uniting Church Northern Synod Moderator Rev Thresi Mauboy.
The ceremony was followed by dinner for all who attended and an outdoor fellowship time with singing and dancing.

If you are short on time:
Give thanks for the Music and Certificate III in Theology students who graduated in October. May their skills and knowledge bring great blessing to their respective churches.
Please pray that our staffing needs for next year will be met and give thanks for new staff who are joining the team.
During November a number of staff will be visiting communities to speak to prospective students and accept applications for courses in 2016. Please pray for safety in travel, especially as the wet season can make roads impassable if it begins early.
If you have a bit longer:
Please pray for our Principal, Jude Long, as she prepares to speak at the CMS Summer Conferences in Victoria and Tasmania during January 2016.
Pray for the College as it seeks to become registered as an Indigenous Corporation as requested by the Federal Government. Pray the changeover process will go smoothly and a new constitution can be agreed.
Please pray that our buildings can be brought up to current standards in time for the June 2016 deadline.
Ola titja bin lenlenbat blanga tok Kriol
Nungalinya staff were hard at work during the holiday break. Not only were they busy getting ready for the final term of the year.
Every morning they gathered to learn Kriol, one of the most widely spoken languages across the Top End.
Among the teachers were Bishop Greg Anderson and Marlene Andrews, one of our Indigenous Assistant Teachers. The class is continuing during term and has been very helpful for teachers to improve their communication skills and understanding of aboriginal culture.
Please pass it around and help us maintain the College for future generations of Christian leaders.
Positions Vacant Nungalinya College has three vacancies for positions commencing in early 2016.
One is for a Foundations Studies teacher, another is for a Development Officer and finally, a Casual Weekend Host.

CMS Summer Schools
The Church Missionary Society (CMS) runs Summer Conferences in each state every January. In 2016 the conferences will feature updates on the Northern Territory by Bishop Greg Anderson, Anglican Bishop of the NT.
Dr Jude Long will also speak at the Victorian conference supporting Bishop Greg and will be the keynote speaker at the Tasmanian conference.
Various Nungalinya staff will also be present at the CMS Summer Conferences in their home state.
This is a great opportunity to hear first-hand about what God is doing in North Australia and to meet the Principal and staff.
You can view a video of Greg Anderson HERE and then visit the CMS website for registration details.
