With school returning at Gunbalanya today, Minister for Indigenous Affairs, Nigel Scullion, said it was a timely reminder of the need for children in remote communities to be ready for school on day one of the new school year.

Minister Scullion commended the community of Gunbalanya for its support and encouragement to get students back to school today. Schools in other remote communities will resume later this month.

"We all want the very best for our children and we know a good education is a key to giving them the best start in life," Minister Scullion said.

The community of Gunbalanya in the Northern Territory has a newly-refurbished community store, thanks to a $4.6 million grant from the Commonwealth Government’s Aboriginals Benefit Account (ABA).

This investment expands the range of healthy food options available in Gunbalanya while creating employment opportunities for the local community.

Minister for Indigenous Affairs, Nigel Scullion, congratulated the Gunbalanya community and the Adjumarllarl Aboriginal Corporation (AAC) on the store officially being opened today.
