Education Week Celebrated with Formal Acknowledgment of Library Partnership with Moree East Public School
Moree East Public School celebrated Education Week yesterday with a formal ceremony acknowledging the school’s partnerships with numerous community groups and agencies including Big Sky Libraries. Mayor Cr Katrina Humphries had the pleasure of witnessing the event that celebrated student successes and the vital contribution staff and the community have towards supporting education.
“The rebuild of the school is providing the perfect platform to create a centre of learning for students and an opportunity for new beginnings.”
“There has been significant investment in infrastructure and coupled with the contribution from staff, parents and carers, community groups and agencies, there’s a bright future for Moree East Public School and its students.”
“The formal relationship with Big Sky Libraries encourages students to see the Moree Community Library as an extension of their continued education – a place to learn, to be engaged and to socialise,” said the Mayor.
Moree East Public School is one of 15 Connected Communities schools in New South Wales chosen to deliver a new approach that addresses the educational and social aspirations of Aboriginal children and young people living in a number of complex and diverse communities in NSW.
“The most touching part of the ceremony was a rendition of the National Anthem in traditional Gamilaroi language taught to the students by their Elders – it shows the school is connected to the community – it was beautiful!” exclaimed the Mayor.
