AAP logoAAP 9/11/2016

Brisbane-based principal Mike Ennis has been appointed to lead education in the indigenous community of Aurukun from 2017.

Mr Ennis, currently the principal of MacGregor State School, has previously worked in the town and will return after the local school was forced to close and teachers were evacuated because of ongoing unrest earlier this year.

"He will lead a quality teaching and learning agenda to ensure we have improved outcomes and achievements for the students in Aurukun," Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk told parliament on Wednesday.
