Batchelor Graduate Jennetta Quinn-Bates a proud Baarkindji, Yorta Yorta women from Muswellbrook has this week been appointed to an ongoing position as a Multi-Platform Journalist for SBS/NITV.

Jennetta Graduated in Certificate IV in Screen and Media in 2019 under Lecturer Rebecca McLean and Senior Lecturer Evelyn Schaber. After Graduating Jennetta was successful in gaining a traineeship with the ABC based in Alice Springs. She went on to win the inaugural Walkley Young Indigenous Scholarship which included a placement at Junkee Media.

We are all incredibly proud of Jennetta and note the hard work she did at Batchelor to Graduate and the positive contributions she made to the class and the campus.  We would love to see her return one day deliver Master Classes and perhaps to continue studying through the Higher Ed program.

Congratulations Jennetta, you are an inspiration to all of our students showing how hard work and determination does pay off, and of course incredible talent helps too…
