It's great to have the Gamilaraay language students as special stars on the front page of the newsletter this month.The students from the Boggabilla /Toomelah language program have been in touch with the newsletter almost since it started, and a group of their older brothers and sisters featured in one of the early editions.


Over the years, some of the most heartening feedback we're given is from communities where the children and their program have been made a feature in the Voice of the Land.

We're told that it gives an enormous boost to the young ones, and an added incentive to continue working, knowing that people all around Australia have read about them and seen their photos.

How about taking the opportunity to make a fuss of the young ones in your local program. Just give me a call or send in photos and a story, and we'll make sure they get to see themselves in print - to be `special stars' for a while.
