Small Schools Super Camp 2015

Ten small one-teacher schools from the Bourke area joined together for a super camp in Nyngan during March 2015. These schools come together each second year so that their students can have the experience of being with other students their own age and learning new things.

Three Uniting Church Schools, Pymble Ladies College, Knox Grammar and Ravenswood Girls School provided specialist teachers and senior students to run activities, Nyngan and Gordon churches did the catering and Bradon French, the Synod Next Generation Worker did the evening activities.

Wide Open Sky

Every Child should have music

Wide Open Sky is an uplifting documentary about a children’s choir in a remote corner of outback Australia. Out here, footy is king and music education is rare as rain. The children travel far from home to music camp to prepare for a big concert in Coonamble. They have three days to learn a demanding repertoire.
