Author Talk – Jenny Old - Autobiography

Next week, author Jenny Old will share her autobiography “Back of Beyond” at the Moree Community Library on 2 July 2018 at 10.30am.

The book captures the life that Jenny and husband Rick had living in the Gulf of Carpentaria on their property “McAllister” and tells of their extraordinary story of love, adventure and hardship they endured and the important role women have in Australian farming life.

“I’m so grateful I wrote my book for others to share the beautiful property and home we had created, and the life we lead. The memories are irreplaceable in our hearts. I have passed on a legacy for others to read,” said Jenny.

Come and join us next Monday at the Moree Community Library, just booking through Eventbrite or at the front desk. https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/jenny-old-author-visit-tickets-46489540467



School-Based Trainee heads to Regional Awards

School-Based Trainee Emily Cosgrove will be representing Moree Plains Shire Council at the 2018 NSW Regional Training Awards night in Tamworth later this week.

Council’s Human Resources Officer Jessica Johnstone explained the Regional Training Awards celebrate the achievements of individuals and the efforts of employers to build regional skills and sustainability.

“Moree Plains Shire Council has a tradition of its employees being represented at the Training Award on a Regional and State level, and this year we proudly support Emily’s nomination,” she said.

Emily commenced with Council in early 2017 as a School-Based Trainee at Gwydir Daycare and Preschool and is completing a Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care whilst attending school and completing 800 hours on the job.

“Emily is a great ambassador for our organisation and has shown commitment to her studies and dedication in the workplace,” said Mrs Johnstone.

Moree Plains Shire Council has previously received national recognition at Parliament House in Canberra for its commitment and support and of its trainees and apprentice program.
