Inspiring Halls Creek Boys Go The Distance To Learn

6 December 2011

William Clarke College, Pacific Hills Christian School, Wunan, Halls Creek District High School and Dural Baptist Church have come together to help provide a culturally appropriate family style boarding accommodation option for Halls Creek young people. It may sound easy enough but for many Indigenous youth it is mostly scary and sometimes confronting delving into an entirely new environment and facing the pressures; that is why these parties have come together to support these courageous kids. Sydney’s a long way from home but when it comes to education no distance is too far for these Halls Creek youth; armed with a positive attitude, thirst for knowledge and pride in their steps these youngsters are ready to take on the challenge of learning away from home.
