GUMBAYNGGIR students from St Mary's School, Bowraville had a taste of the spotlight recently when they were given the chance to sing on stage at the Xavier Rudd in Coffs Harbour. The students are becoming used to performing in public, having appeared previously at the Native Title Conference and the opening of the Indigenous Coordination Centre at Coffs Harbour.

Xavier was welcomed to the country by Martin Ballingarry and language teacher, Michael Jarrett, whose daughter Amanda provided the translation.

The students were given great support from Xavier and the audience of thousands, as they sang and told stories about their country.
