Western NSW public schools celebrate creating the future
Local public schools will be celebrating their role in creating the future during Education Week, next week (Monday-Friday, 1-5 August).
Western NSW Regional Director, Carole McDiarmid said this year's Education Week theme: NSW Public Schools creating the future captures the essence of today's education on many levels.
"One of the most exciting gifts that our public schools offer any students is an enthusiasm and love for learning," Mrs McDiarmid said.
"As we progress towards the future, learning and renewal are vital for success as the world around us changes at an ever-increasing rate.
"Today's students will play an important role in the future and it is our schools that are laying the foundation for that future."
Mrs McDiarmid said the love of learning that thrives in the Western NSW Region public schools will be on display at activities at local schools throughout Education Week.
Western NSW Region has been honoured in being chosen to be part of an innovative simuLaunch to raise the curtain on Education Week.
Mrs McDiarmid, education officials, teachers, students and representatives of school communities will be beamed in from Bourke to be part of the simuLaunch which will have around 5000 participants in Bourke and metropolitan Sydney.
Most schools across the region are promoting local activities to their community and Mrs McDiarmid is urging everyone to take advantage of the opportunity to gain an insight into what students are achieving.
Meanwhile students from Canowindra High and Dubbo College Senior Campus will be representing the Western NSW Region as members of the action team running the state student representative council conference in Sydney next week and senior executive in the Department's Sydney head offices will be working with students from Dubbo College Senior Campus and Mudgee High as part of the Director-General for a Day initiative.
