The Bourke-Walgett School of Distance Education has won first prize in a state-wide photographic competition.

During Term 3, the Department of Education, invited Bourke-Walgett School of Distance Education (BWSODE) to enter the “Looking through our Window” photo story competition.

Schools were asked to submit 10 photographs that gave those outside looking in, an insight into the way rural and remote schools operate.

More than 180 entries were received across five categories, and over 129 schools participated in the competition.

BWSODE offered the judges a look into a style of schooling that many people know very little about. The students gathered and submitted images that showcased what school meant to them.

BWSODE was awarded first place in the category of Other School Types.

BWSODE was advised by Mrs. Jones, Rural and Remote Education Officer, that their submission had “captured the hearts of the judging panel,” which was made up of a range of very important people.

BWSODE would like to share this story with the community.
