We have been used to, in recent times, showing off our high-quality local schools to city educators, and another group went away from Narrabri Shire impressed recently.
The group of Sydney primary school teachers and Education Department officials, accompanied by Parliamentary Secretary for Education Gareth Ward, were in the North West on August 16 to see what they could learn from rural schools.
They visited Narrabri Public, Wee Waa High and Wee Waa Public Schools while in the shire.
Narrabri Public School principal Marion Tame said the group was interested in the “culture” behind country schools, and to see what they could use in the city.
And that might be quite a bit.
Mr Ward, also the State Member for Kiama, said the visits to see what local teachers were doing were “fascinating”.
“It’s been so inspiring,” he said.
