AIM HIGH

The Zillmere State School (2002)

The Zillmere State School has a 30% indigenous population, a 20% Pacific Islander (Samoa, Tonga, Maori etc) as well as a significant ESL (English as second language) contingent. The school has a high proportion of single parent and low-income families struggling financially to cope. The area has extreme levels of public housing and unemployment.

The Aim High project was designed to improve the sense of community, self-esteem and resilience of the children and their families.

The CD & DVD film clip of ‘From Little Things Big Things Grow’ harnessed the insights and talents of 225 primary school-aged children and delivered an affirming message to their immediate communities and ultimately, via extensive radio play to the entire nation.

 

Short Song Samples

“Congratulations to all. I clock up many hours as an itinerant teacher travelling to support behaviour-disordered children, hearing your students sing on Triple J was certainly a highlight of my week, indeed of my year. All of the social skills
which I attempt to teach were beautifully demonstrated, co-operation, teamwork, inclusion, respect for others, and a celebration of faith in and hope for the future.”

(J. Smithhurst – Tuncurry NSW)

Aboriginal legend Kev Carmody worked with us on the Zillmere version of
‘From Little Things Big Things Grow’.
According to ABC Radio, the Zillmere version of that
Paul Kelly/Kev Carmody classic is their most requested song ever.
