BENIFICIARIES FOR 2019
In 2019, funds raised by the Blackville Arts & Market Day will be split between two beneficiaries.
Blackville Public School
Blackville Public School is a geographically isolated school located on rich farming land in the Liverpool Plains. The current enrolment of 9 students are drawn from the village and nearby farming properties. The school has a history of excellence producing confident, well rounded young people who have gone on to achieve great things. It aims to nurture lifelong learners who are never disadvantaged by their isolation. Blackville Public School is committed to providing a personalised and quality education within an inclusive and supportive environment. The school motto ‘Strive to Achieve’ is a belief that encompasses academic work, sporting successes and personal growth, all of which reflect 21st century learning.
The funds received from the BAMD enable the employment of a second staff member four days a week which reduces class size and ensures explicit quality teaching and learning addressing stage appropriate outcomes for our students.

Ronald McDonald House, Tamworth
Ronald McDonald House, Tamworth helps families throughout New England North West who have a sick or injured child be together. For many families throughout the region, there aren't many options when disaster strikes and their child is sick or injured as the medical treatment their child needs is often hundreds of kilometres away. Ronald McDonald House is a 100% community owned and operated charity, and relies on the support of the community to help provide families with an oasis of comfort in a sea of chaos.
Last year, Ronald McDonald House gave more than 771 families a ‘home away from home’, providing comfort, support and resources just steps from their child in hospital with 435 of these families from New England North West.
