Bourke continues to play a role in opening opportunities for people looking to build their careers and the Bourke District Children’s Service has an enviable record in supporting people who want to build their working lives around children.

Ella Duff is the latest success story to come through the ranks at BDCS, gaining her Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care.

For Ella, it is a labour of love as well as a career, and her recent qualification is the realisation of years of hard work, dedication, and focus.

Ella moved to Bourke last year but was familiar with the town on a part time basis when she was a frequent visitor to the town for holidays over the past five years.

An opportunity came up at BDCS earlier this year when she was invited to turn her work experience since high school into something more substantial. Ella was offered employment in childcare at BDCS and proved she had the qualities required to gently nurture and guide Bourke’s littlest citizens through their very first steps in the classroom.

“I started in ‘the big room’ and then transferred to the babies and I absolutely love working in that field,” Ella said.
