|The back bone of the week Nyngan and Gordon Uniting Churches Volunteers|
|Come and get it great food and fruit|
The food was from local shops or home- made. Drinks were water which was in high demand as Monday to Wednesday were in high 30's, the cool change was welcome but bit of a shock.
|this group made a record of the Camp|
|They made a maze in the yards|
|Singing and music lessons|
There were art lessons plus, in free time knitting. I helped with chess lessons and board games, plus they had games with the older students - running and footy -the friendships grew. This camp gave the group an insight into each other's lives. This applied to all there. In conversations I had with students, staff & volunteers, all were learning about each other's lives and dreams. The camp helped with those who wish to go to these Sydney schools after they finish Primary. There are some pathways for this to happen. The best thing is, it is the opening of the minds of those living on Isolated Stations and in isolated townships as to what is out there for them. I think for the Sydney students it also opens up for them life beyond their suburb. Service in the the small school towns teaches them of the fact that we are all the same - just some have been blessed to live in a culture and environment full of wonder and challenges. The towns folk never knew year 5-6 children are able to drive a truck and tractor. The last morning was a show of what they had learnt and their great talents.
