Walgett Community College, the 'worst school in the state' gets a fresh start. How are new buildings going to solve behaviour problems. Politicians don't or won't understand Aboriginal behaviour problems so they do the one thing they can: Build things. A school with a long and troubled history of violence and disadvantage has been given a fresh start as students moved into brand-new $9. 2 million school facilities. A viral video of teenage girls fiercely attacking a classmate in a classroom last year brought infamy to the remote north-western NSW school, Walgett Community College. Students at Walgett High say their school has seen a dramatic turnaround since a time when regular fights left them feeling unsafe. There were crisis meetings with the minister and education bureaucrats, more student fights during their visits and police were stationed in the school, which found itself thrust reluctantly into the media spotlight. This was after Education Minister Adrian Piccoli had declared it "the worst school in the state" over the ruinous state of its buildings and facilities. Attendance rates were abysmal, violent fights were common, teachers were subject to verbal abuse by students and the high turnover of principals had left a leadership gap and sour relations with the mostly Indigenous population in the town. The students were hurt by the video and the media coverage. "That was just embarrassing," year 9 student Abbey Ashby, 14, told Fairfax Media this week. But the school community celebrated a rare bright spot this week as they moved into brand new facilities built by the Department of Education under its Connected Communities Strategy, after what department officials say has been a stabilising year... Year 9 student Raylene Kennedy, 14, said "It's better than how it used to be, it's safer. Nobody used to feel safe, 'cos there used to be so many fights. Abbey, who wants to study nursing at university when she finishes school, said the new buildings were a major improvement on the old school. You felt real crowded in. ". The executive principal Karen McKinnon, who took over in October 2015, is being credited by the department for turning things around. in the school. She has worked in several remote and Indigenous schools, mainly in Queensland and the Northern Territory. Making the school safer, she said, is "about expectations and being consistent. There are rules and students know the rules and they know there are. Source: Australian Politics
