Schools and teachers see such value in this programme that this is the third year WTAW has brought Burn Bright to the Upper Hunter, with Regional Australia Bankproviding the funding for today’s session which focused on Resilience, Relationships and Grit.

If you were one of the students who joined in today, we’d love you to post a comment about what the day meant to you or share some highlights.

If you get a chance tomorrow (Friday) morning, tune in to Mike Prichard on ABC Upper Hunter so you can listen to students speak about just how much today’s session meant to them.
