    So who is looking after the Cowboy from Queensland – a very SpiKe-E miscreant.
    S-L-im -EY Cotton dismantled and degraded teaching staff and anything likely to succeed at Shep College, Elcho Island for two years and left Assistant Principals to cop it from the media due to low attendance figures when he ran away at the end of Term 3, citing “health reasons”.

    The Countrymen, women and their children are not adverse to education but they smelt his hide and heard the jingle jangle of his spurs before he arrived on his high horse. They gave him a chance and realised they shouldn’t have bothered.

    Adding insult to injury after injury his wife was payed who knows what salary to coordinate the Yellow Shirts by demanding Yolngu staff not leave houses without dragging a child out with them to school.

    As it happened DOE didn’t know what to do with him because as soon as the smell of his raw hide hit the wind at Yirrkarrla, Eva LawLESS was told in no uncertain terms he wouldn’t make it past the school gate . . . so sad but lots more fun getting paid a Principals wage in an ST 1 position at Jabiru Area School until being placed as the Principal of Nhulunbuy Primary School.

    Back to business with his health issues looking up and back in the saddle crack’n the whip . . . NO FUN FOR NHULUNBUY’S Primary years daughters and son’s (and who cares about the Teachers).

    So, who is this poor example of a Principal and how did he ride rough shot over the recruitment process after others had been interviewed?????

    WHOSE BACK END IN DoE did he SUDDENLY APPEAR OUT OF and handed the job at Elcho back when??????

    Oh, and Jarvis Ryan liked to hang out at the Cotton’s while on NTEU business at Elcho Island.

    That must have given staff heaps of confidence … lol . . . NOT.

    Ah the old World Teacher’s Day awards again
    there was Eva spruiking at the big awards ceremony while Laurie was out at Kalkarindji trying to quell the communities anger and their instruction for teachers at that school to get out of their community

    • Your not in our club says:

      Did you see the photo on Eva’s Facebook page?
      Master of ceremonies Marion Guppy looking oh so pleased with her efforts.

  3. Oh my here we go again Eva. says:


    Kalkarindji School Principal writes a one line resignation on the whiteboard and runs away.

    Allegations of fraud taking place and teacher probation procedure not being followed.

    Teachers off on stress leave.

    School Principal missing and Senior Teacher hiding in his house.

    At a community demanded meeting with teachers, traditional owners told teachers they were just
    there for the money and to told them get out of their community.

  4. a victim says:

    It is interesting to read all the commentary now being posted on the net about the Harvey Weistein affair and to ponder on the lessons that we can learn from this so called “Weistein Factor.”
    Carvina Chocaro identifies Weinstein as a gatekeeper to Hollywood and asks “how did it end” and then declares “it was the critical mass that did it”.
    The Weinstein affair will be debated and examined for a long time, as it should be. I believe that lessons from this horrible person’s behaviour will be compared to behaviours of people of all gender and not just repugnant men like Weinstein, when a person with more power than another bullies another person with either sexual harassment, coercion intimidation or adverse action.
    As Chocaro identified, a critical mass had to develop, some call this a tipping point.
    Of coarse if victims or witnesses do not speak up then this tipping point will take longer to happen.
    The Paul Newmans of Australian Education are like the Harvey Weinsteins of the world and they will continue to damage people’s lives unless people have the courage to speak up.
    The other important point to be made about this horrible affair is the fact that those in positions of power remained silent and did not rock the boat. This is particularly pertinent to those masters of people like Newman. Newman is a product of the Northern Territory Department of Education and unfortunately is just another example of an educational bureaucrat abusing his position of power and his masters letting him get away with it. Unfortunately for employees of the Northern Territory Department of Education, members of the executive of this organisation continue to get away with bullying staff who speak about unethical behaviours by their principals. It is time the colleagues and political masters of these people act according to their responsibilities Eva.

      Check out Mr. Parker’s latest attempt to deal with bullying in his school.
      Well, he certainly is the pot calling the kettle black isn’t he!
      We wonder if the DOE will set up a BSUP for bully principals, especially those that threaten students with cattle prodders or resort to tapping naughty students to their desks!
      We are sure that the parents of students at this school would wish to be notified of his placement in this program and that he was being monitored for any further incidents.

  5. i cant believe it says:

    oh my god!!!
    is there something wrong with him or what

  6. bring it on says:
