BOWRAVILLE Central School’s Stage 3 and 4 students have recently taken part in an exciting and innovative project with the Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation and the organisation’s ambassador, local Gumbaynggirr man and nationally renowned artist Tasman Keith.

The project involved songwriting and production of music sessions and culminated with a select group of students going out into the community to film a music video for two of the tracks they had recorded.

The project was an extension of the annual Artist in Residence Project involving Tasman Keith, which has been running for three years at Bowraville Central School.

The school was pleased to extend the project this year, with Tasman working in the school for most of Term 1.

“The goal of this project was to encourage student voice and it tied in fabulously with the current Stage 4 English program, ‘Powerful Youth Voices’,” a spokesperson for the project told News Of The Area.

“We were incredibly thrilled by what our student voices produced in this year’s project and a massive thank you goes out to Tasman Keith and the Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation, they are fantastic.”
