With the NSW government not funding music education in schools, Goonengerry Public School has kicked off a Gofundme campaign to raise the $2,500 needed to make up the difference for their Creative and Performing Arts (CAPA) program.

Principal Tracey Barnes says, ‘Our community is super passionate about every single aspect of the performing arts and we are very proud of our incredibly diverse program that has been running for over 20 years. It encompasses dancing, singing, acting and general music.’

‘[The school] believes that there is a critical link between being better learners and fostering a love of the creative and performing arts.’

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
