Inspiring children in Bourke about the importance of education
Amanda Leonard and Courtney Kelly from Bourke in Western NSW are passionate about supporting their community to create stronger and brighter futures for their children.
Wiradjuri and Koonya women, Courtney and Amanda are RSAS workers, working with local schools to help parents and families make sure their kids have what they need to go to school every day.
“What's made a really positive impact is that they can see either myself and Courtney identify as Aboriginal people. It's better to build relationships with community because we identify, and they can see the passion we have to improve school attendance,” Amanda said.
