Poverty & Disadvantage

The ABC Four Corners program entitled “Growing Up Poor” which screened in September 2012 asks children what it is like being poor in the midst of plenty. The children from five families in south western Sydney allowed Four Corners into their lives to show us the world from their point of view and what is being done to break the cycle of disadvantage.

Kingi Williams interview: Macarthur Chronicle, 3 August 2010.

 

"One of my students was suspended for four consecutive terms - mainly due to chair throwing and window smashing in class. Since his participation in Garden Club, he is into his third term without a further suspension. Garden Club has been the single biggest influence in calming his behaviour."
