Today the OC received some special visitors to help us with our work on the Newcastle Herald writing competition. We were joined by several students from Islington Public school who kindly agreed to be interviewed by our students about their backgrounds, journeys to Australia and experiences in a new country. The students all come from refugee backgrounds and came to Australia to live in a country free from war, violence and poverty. We were very grateful to have these students share their incredible stories with us and I know Chris and Allan (our journalists) will do an amazing job writing this article for the Herald.
Look out for the Tighes Hill Tribune, to be published in the Newcastle Herald on Thursday 5th September.
