Mal­colm in the middle

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE - Education

DAIN­TREE State School stu­dents got up close and per­sonal with the Prime Min­is­ter Mal­colm Turn­bull dur­ing an af­ter­noon tea on Sun­day evening at St Au­gus­tine’s Col­lege, Cairns.

School cap­tains Tori Baird and Cassie Daven­port were cho­sen to meet the Prime Min­is­ter dur­ing his first jour­ney to the re­gion as the leader of the coun­try.

Both of the girls said they felt lucky to be given the op­por­tu­nity of get­ting a ‘selfie’ with the Prime Min­is­ter.

Mr Turn­bull, on a whirl­wind tour of North Queens­land, hap­pily posed with dozens of lo­cals af­ter ad­dress­ing the crowd for 20 min­utes.

His speech fo­cused on in­no­va­tion and the ben­e­fits of the grow­ing Asian mar­ket for mem­bers of the busi­ness com­mu­nity.
