Congratulations to the 5 Aurukun residents who have been sworn in as members of the Australian Army after participating in the Kapani Warrior program!

The team will learn basic soldering skills with further training to qualify for the opportunity to work with Maritime Border Command, the Royal Australian Navy and Border Force in detecting illegal activity within Australian waters in the Torres Strait.

Another 15 Kapani trainees from Aurukun have been recommended to the Army. We hope to see many more of these exciting opportunities in the years to come!!
