City to host bush schools conference

Saturday, 20th September, 2014

For the first time, the State conference of the Isolated Children’s Parents Association will be held in Broken Hill.

Organisers expect about 150 delegates from all over NSW to attend the conference on March 3 and 4.

Delegates will discuss educational opportunity for isolated children and will sample Broken Hill’s hospitality and cuisine at a number of different venues.

IPCA Broken Hill Branch President Jacinta Cullen said there would be guest speakers on a wide range of topics and visitors were welcome to attend.

State conferences give members, through their branch delegates, the opportunity to bring issues up for debate and a vote.

Conferences are convened by individual branches which volunteer to host them, Ms Cullen said. 

“We are seeking sponsors to ensure the success of our event. Sponsorship can take the form of cash or items for the fundraising activities such as raffle or auction.

“We are also looking for promotional items to include as gifts for our delegates in the conference satchels.”

The branch was also “thrilled” about their conference logo, created by local artist Jodi Daley.

The logo and theme, “Every outback child has a silver lining” was designed to encapsulate all that was good about educating children in the outback, Ms Cullen said.

“This logo is a great opportunity to showcase Broken Hill and our region.

“We have tried to use Broken Hill’s history and culture in the logo and feel we have truly reflected the wonderful resource we have in our children and the mining history of Broken Hill.”
