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.’
