Vale Mum T

With the passing of Maureen Trindle, also known as Mum T or Nanna T on Mothers' Day 2016 (08/05/16) was a very sad occasion for not only her family but so much of the Alice Springs community. She spent much of her adult life supporting, encouraging and working for a better education for all kids with a strong focus on Indigenous families. She was a no-nonsense person and everyone respected her for that. In the 1970's she worked at the local high school - ASHS (now CMS Campus) - as a Home Liaison Officer. In this time she looked after many students from all walks of life, and she remained close with them until her passing. They all referred to her as Mum T.

The Storyteller

An innovative approach to the teaching of narrative writing

CMS had a visiting artist who is popularly known as The Storyteller aka Glen. He brought to the students an innovative way of telling stories through song. The students and teachers found this approach quite effective as the students listened attentively. Year 7, 8 and 9 students all had a great time listening to inspiring stories, songs and having a go at telling their stories through music.
