Aurukun Council supports new school head

AAP logoAAP 11/11/2016

Aurukun Shire Council has thrown its support behind the Queensland Education Department taking full control of the community's school.

Brisbane-based principal Mike Ennis has been appointed to lead education in the indigenous community from next year.

Aurukun Mayor Dereck Walpo says Aurukun's children deserve a school with an Australian curriculum, after the facility was shut down in May following increasing unrest which saw teachers evacuated.
