Claudia's rural experience

19 June 2019

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT

Claudia Rawat from Model Farms High School is experiencing a short-term change in lifestyle at Balranald Central School in the State’s south west with the Rural Experience Program.

‘When I came here on my first drive I saw emus and kangaroos, and I thought wow that’s amazing, look at that!’

The locals are more offhand about the local wildlife but for Claudia, it’s one of the fascinating things about her tree change.

I’m a city person, so I still go ‘Wow!!’ she laughs.

Principal of Balranald Central School, Gus Comi, believes the school benefits greatly from Claudia’s input into the school.

‘Having Claudia here as part of the Rural Experience Program has been wonderful for the school. She has added another dimension to the school in the learning support area.’

Placements commencing Term 1 2020 are open now and close Sunday 28 July. Check-out what’s on offer for 2020 by visiting the Rural Experience Program web page.

Rural Experience Program

Shay O’Day from Thirroul Public School, a suburban coastal school near Wollongong, took an opportunity through the Rural Experience Program to teach in one of 155 host schools located in rural and remote NSW.

‘I floated the idea with my family (my husband and two girls, 8 and 10) and we decided that it would be a great opportunity for the whole family to take a gap year from our regular lives in order to experience rural lives.’

Shay and her young family have settled in Narrendera, a beautiful town on the Murrumbidgeein the Riverina area of NSW, until the end of this year.

‘The staff at the school have made sure I feel settled and welcome, they’re great! I have been for meals with them and even joined their social volley-ball team. The kids have made some lovely new friends and are still connecting with their friends at home.

‘We are fortunate enough to be on a bit of land just out of town in a beautiful house with a horse and 8 sheep, so we are getting a true (or at least pretend) feel for farm life. I can definitely see the attraction a tree-change can bring.’

Rural Experience Program placements, commencing Term 1 2020, are now open. Applications close Sunday 28 July.

‘Don’t hesitate! It is a fantastic opportunity to experience an entirely different school and life setting. I’m struggling to see why you wouldn’t apply!’
