REGIONAL NSW is rousing the interest of its metropolitan cousins. Communities across NSW – from Bourke to Moree and the Clarence Valley – are inspiring the nation.
In Bourke, the community is driving a ground-breaking Justice Reinvestment process; at Moree East Public School the arts and school are joining forces, while Uncle Ron Heron was recognised for his work with the National Indigenous Science Education Program at Macquarie University.

Read our partners' stories and, like us, be inspired by their efforts for building better futures for our young Australians.

Bourke's community wants justice

BOURKE’s community is aiming big. Just Reinvest NSW – which is embedded in Maranguka – aims to reduce young Aboriginal people’s contact with jails and courts. Justice Reinvestment shifts money saved on prison sentences into stonger preventative community measures.      

Creativity engaging students

DANCE classes, multi-media photography and the excitement of Festival of the Brolga are all helping students come through the school gates each morning at Moree East Public School. Better school attendance is just one aim of 3Moree, part of the NSW government’s Connected Communities strategy. 

Congratulations Uncle Ron Heron

ESTEEMED lecturer and Aboriginal elder, Uncle Ron Heron, received an honorary doctorate of letters from Macquarie University last month. Read how Dr Heron’s profound work with the National Indigenous Science Education Program imbues Maclean High School students with confidence.
