New Leaves

'New Leaves' is a Production filmed and recorded with the current EAL/D Students at Harristown State High School in Toowoomba.
With most of the Students coming from war torn nations like Iraq and Afghanistan this is story about the resilience of the human spirit and how these incredible young people can enrich Australia and become an integral part of our future identity.
Personally I am so fortunate to have got to know these beautiful children and have been deeply touched and inspired by them. I am so proud to share and live in Australia with them.

This is it...the highly anticipated Music Documentary "Beyond Barambah" celebrating  the rich cultural diversity and community spirit amongst the 9 Schools in the Murgon and Cherbourg region. I'm so proud of this piece of work and really hope you take the time to watch it.
Thanks to all the children involved, it was fantastic to perform with several of you at the official launch. You are the reason I do this job

Murgon State School principal Daniel Bishop said participation in the Beyond Barambah music documentary had provided students with an opportunity to highlight education and success in rural and remote Queensland.
“Our rural and remote students have been shown that they have the capacity to go on and do great things no matter where in the world they live,” Mr Bishop said.
“Beyond Barambah has provided inspiration and unity for our students.”
The Small Town Culture project is funded through the Commonwealth Government's Higher Education Participation Program (HEPP) to improve the access, participation and success of students from communities under-represented in higher education.
USQ Acting Vice-Chancellor Professor Janet Verbyla said the Small Town Culture project highlighted country life and spirit through the creation of music and film.
“The project is building pride among young people from Queensland’s regional and remote communities,” Professor Verbyla said.
USQ’s Executive Director of Marketing and Student Attraction Helen Nolan said the Beyond Barambah music documentary was an opportunity for students from the Barambah cluster to showcase their schools.
“The music documentary is a journey into the heart of the nine schools in the Barambah cluster,” Mrs Nolan said.  
The Barambah cluster consists of Murgon State School, Murgon State High School, Cherbourg State School, Wheatlands State School, Moffatdale State School, Proston State School, Goomeri State School, Cloyna State School and Windera State School.
