On September 21 and 11 the Aboriginal Education Consultative Group met in Tenterfield for its State Conference at the Sir Henry Parkes Best Western.

Members of the AECG travelled from all over NSW from far as Sydney, Wagga Wagga, Wollongong, Central Coast and Coffs Harbour – to name but a few destinations. 

Local members of the AECG branch and community also attended the conference, where regional reports and updates were punctuated with school performances.

Tenterfield High School principal Sandra Rosner and Junior AECG president Jara Duroux each gave a presentation at the conference followed by principal Anna Starcevic doing the same for The Sir Henry Parkes Memorial Public School.
