Ms Selena Uibo

Selena Uibo graduated valedictorian from The University of Queensland with a Bachelor of Arts and Education in 2010.

Taking up a teaching post in her mother's homeland of Numbulwar in the Northern Territory in 2012, Uibo set out to inspire her students and community with her own positive scholastic experiences.

She has worked closely with secondary age students, teaching them practical business skills, through the Second Chance Shop - a student-operated second-hand shop and Numburindi Arts - a sales and distribution hub for local art and craft items.  In 2013 Uibo won a Commonwealth Bank Foundation Teaching Award for teaching financial literacy to her senior students in Numbulwar with the Numburindi Arts project which was a creative arts subject.

Profits from the above two enterprises were used within the school for major supplements to both Interstate and Northern Territory educational excursions and even supported two senior students to travel on a two week volunteering excursion to Cambodia.

In 2015 Uibo was elected as the chairperson for the Numbulwar Local Authority which represents local issues and priorities at the Local Government Regional Council.

Uibo was elected as the Labor Member for Arnhem in the Northern Territory election held in August 2016.
