On Tuesday March 19, The 15th Annual Landcare Adventure was hosted in Bingara. More than 150 visitors from all over the New England/North West Region attended. The morning’s activities took place at The Living Classroom, the newly completed field studies centre in Bingara.
A contingent of students from Bingara Central School completed an induction session a week earlier and then put their Tour Guide skills to work, welcoming the guests as they arrived, and escorting them to the Registration Area.
These students; Dylan Butler, Chloe Butler, Jessie Laird, Victoria Abra, Kianhi Short, Bethany Forster, Rose Carr, Jorjah Coss, Nicole Flack, Jaime Rae Thomas, Brad Webber and Michael Frewen, delighted the guests with the warmth of their welcome, and their knowledge of The Living Classroom, as they escorted them from the site entrance to the registration area.
The students then waited patiently while the first series of presentations were made in the Classroom. The photo above shows the group posing with the wonderfully welded Murray Cod sculpture on the grass area.
That evening another group of students, Shannon McGarrity, Jorjah Coss, Dylan Butler, Ellen O’Dell, Jaime Rae Thomas, Nicole Flack, Matthew Hunt, and Gabbie O’Connor, acted as waiters at the Landcare Presentation Dinner held at The Roxy Theatre. The caterers, Erik and Noelene Ozols, and the dinner guests, were greatly impressed by the enthusiasm and expertise of these young people.
