Many small rural schools started life in the late 1800’s. They are at the centre of small communities and provide a focal point for support agencies, local business and government funding.

Australia is all about the diversity that abounds in small rural communities. Small schools provide great educational and social opportunities which are enhanced when these communities collaborate.

Twenty-two schools within a 30 minute radius of Shepparton have combined to promote their unique rural communities and the schools within.
