Education excellence, closer than you think

The Moree Plains community is invited to attend the launch of the Moree Secondary Parents and Citizens’ (P&C) Association’s new promotional video showcasing Moree’s own local high school as a place of educational excellence at 5pm, Tuesday 30 October 2018 at the Albert Street Campus.

Moree Plains Shire Council, through its financial assistance program contributed $3000 to assist with the school with a communication strategy to help change local perceptions and increase awareness of the high quality of school education available in Moree.

Mayor Cr Katrina Humphries congratulated the Moree Secondary P&C for tackling community perceptions and attitudes towards educating children at local schools.

“I am very proud of the P&C members who explored parental attitudes and community perceptions to order to develop a plan to change the current status of so many local children been educated outside of Moree.”

“The Moree Secondary College promotional video showcases that educational excellence is right here on our doorstep with state-of-the-art educational facilities and a supportive and academic-driven environment that allows local children to be educated in their home town,” said the Mayor.

P&C President Kelly James explained the video was produced locally by RabbitHop Films and freelance journalist Georgie Poole interviewing local and past students about their educational experiences.

“It was important to the P&C to foster a sense of achievement amongst students, parents and teachers and as a result, we invite the community to share the video through social media platforms and challenge parents to rethink their educational options for their children.

“The video demonstrates that Moree Secondary College has quality resources and a team of dedicated teaching staff who are interested in building a better future for local students who want to further their academic experiences,” said Mrs James.

The launch of Moree Secondary College promotional video on 30 October 2018 includes a school orientation of the woodwork, metalwork, dance, hospitality and senior learning centre rooms, and a chance to talk directly with representatives of the P&C and the teaching fraternal about the educational opportunities that are available in Moree.

Hundreds Of Items Saved From Entering Landfill

Garage Sale TrailLocal residents shared the reuse and recycle message at the inaugural Moree Second-Hand Market and Car-Boot Sale at Jellicoe Park last Saturday which was hosted by Moree Plains Shire Council.

More than 30 individuals registered for the local event as part of the National Garage Sale Trail – a nationwide waste management campaign that encourages community members to reduce the amount of unwanted, but usable items ending up in landfill.

Council’s Waste Support Officer, Dayna Kross explained this was the first year Moree Plains Shire Council had hosted a community event in partnership with Northern Inland Regional Waste (NIRW) and the Garage Sale Trail and deemed it a huge success!Garage Sale Trail 2

“Thank you to the stall holders and savvy shoppers who supported the event and made it a success – everyone’s a winner!”

“Stallholders were able to sell items they didn’t want and pocket some cash; buyers found some great bargains and a whole lot of pre-loved items were recycled in the community and did not end up at the landfill!”

“The Second-Hand Market and Car-Boot Sale really motivated people to declutter and having the event in a public space with lots of other stallholders provided a market atmosphere.”

“We are pleased that this event helped turned someone’s trash into another’s treasure and this is the basis of the reuse movement – the best way to recycle!” said Ms Kross.

Garage Sale Trail is a grass roots idea that was born in Bondi Beach in 2010 as means to encourage reuse, celebrate creativity and bring local people together, and Moree Plains Shire Council was proud to be part of this year’s Garage Sale Trail campaign.
