What a wonderful project! You are gifted to grow up in such a place and community and it’s great that Richard and the team are working with this amazing school. I hope and suspect that this will be the first of many solar projects that you will embrace.
A wonderful project; How did you think of it.
What a great project! Well done to Richard, Les and Two Men and a Truck for providing the opportunity. But particular congratulations to the students for seizing that opportunity. I look forward to future articles and information!
I would love to see images of your beautiful water falls and the flowers that bloom after the wet season.
You are so lucky to live in such an amazing place.
Great project! Way to go
Always look forward and never look back.
Thank you, Richard and team, for keep doing the good work out there.
Wonderfull initiative from Richard and his team. It is great to meet people feeling as passionate as us about solar energy. We are a student team from the Netherlands and we build a solar car to participate in the World Solar Challenge. Richard is a partner in the project and with that he and his crew enable students to race the world solar challenge and show the world the possibilities of solar power. By giving the Indulkana Anangu students the opportunity to work with th solar weather station they form a great example. It is never to early or to late to learn about solar technology! Hopefully the students from Indulkana Anangu will spread their knowledge and enthusiasm to their community. Good luck!
What a wonderful project Richard has put together and it’s good to see him giving something back to the community. If only there were more people like him! 5 stars!
Fascinating project, so different from here in England. Grandchildren 2 & 5 will like looking at pictures of the school. The 5 year old walks to school each day with his mother and sister along pavements next to roads. This time of year often in the rain and in December snow. A lot colder.
It’s a great pleasure to hear about such a project and the student engagement.
Well done to all involved.
This is an amazing project! A big shoutout to Richard and rest of the teams involved!
More power to you all! 🙂
What a wonderful initiative focused on innovation, jobs of the future and giving outback indigenous communities opportunities. Two Men and a Truck leading the way again, moving people in every sense.
Good luck and “Hut ab” as we Germans would say!
Greetings from Norway – on the other side of the world!!!! I must say — I can just imagaine the lovely weather you are having there at the moment? How hot is it there now? We are just starting to come into Autumn and it is getting cooler…. pretty soon there will be metres of snow lining all the foot paths and streets! It is a really big difference! I used to live in Melbourne but now live in Oslo, the capital city of Norway. A good summer day here in Norway is like a good winter day in Melbourne – I am not joking! Seriously — if it is 15 degrees – we are outside in t-shirts working on our sun tans! (some people like to lay naked in the park as well … but I am not that brave!!!)
In winter it gets really COLD! The coldest I have experienced is -27!!!!! but we have a saying in Norway that says, “there is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing”… so you just have to make sure you have a reallllly good jacket and gloves and a scarf! Things I bet you definitely don’t need where you live… though, it must be cold at night time there as well?
I have been to the ‘outback’ three times for school camps… once as a student and twice as a teacher … and omg!!! It was cold at night time!!!!!
Anyway, hope you are all having a lovely day! We are eight hours behind you here, so it is 10am in the morning… I am finishing my coffee before I start cleaning my house! It is reallllly messy! Hahahaha.
Be sure to write back, and I will write back too! I am actually a teacher… but I am on maternity leave right now, as I just had a baby… but when I am back at work… perhaps it would be fun to write/message some of my students here in Norway? We have lots of kids from all over the world at an international school… would be really cool to connect with you all!!!!
What do you think?

Hello to all. What a bunch of wonderful, caring people. Have a lovely day everyone.
G’day to you from freezing cold Ballarat, Vic. I love the idea of your weather station, I wish you could arrange to send us some warm sunny weather. I “liked” your Facebook page and will keep an eye on your progress and reports from there. Good luck and good job!
So happy to see this project up and running, well done to Richard and the school community in working together for the students to have this opportunity.
This is a fantastic project
