Comment on Little kids have the key to our future by Phil Walcott.

It’s great to see whatever can be achieved within our communities to help grow strong, healthy children from conception through their early childhood years. 80% of everything we ever learn occurs in the first four to five years of life (including in utero).
Best practice and next practice models of community engagement help us all to thrive. It’s a mindset that needs to change so that we embrace positive language and positive behaviours in all members of our communities.
If we all choose to work together in whatever capacity we are each capable of (a strengths-based approach), there are so many possibilities that can be achieved. Sharing skills with each other, growing our vibrant communities all over the NT and becoming the best we can be is a new paradigm we are capable of.

Leaving town: Centre, its creatures will miss Kaye Kessing
Such a tremendous thread in the rich fabric of our social tapestry.
Kaye has given so much with regard to her generous contributions to many of Alice’s people and organisations.
Her sensational talent with creating visual masterpieces is inter-generational.
Her bilby book trilogy is simply sensational and her many works that adorn various canvases around town are a remarkable testament to her creativity and passion for Central Australia.
Wishing you and Eleanor a most wonderful future together, Kaye, continuing to create physical and emotional artworks in the name of our first love … humanity. Journey well.
