The students of Cobargo Public School had a tough start to the year.
When bushfires ripped through Cobargo in the early hours of the morning on New Year’s Eve, some lost houses, others lost family members and all have a story to tell about that day. Together, along with the help of their teacher Campbell Kerr, Cobargo Public’s Year Five and Six class have told their story – writing and illustrating a book titled ‘The Day She Stole the Sun.’
“I hope the book is read by people in the city, so they understand what the bushfires were like, and also in other small towns who were burnt, because they will relate to it.” Lila Herring (above left) “I hope the Prime Minister reads the book. I want him to think that when he came here first, (in the days after the bushfire) that was not the real us. The real Cobargo is nice, kind, thoughtful and strong.” Nate Miller (above right)
“The book has taught the students a lifelong lesson that positives can come from difficult experiences. ” Gillian Park, Cobargo Public School Principal.
“The story is a testament to the courage and thoughtfulness of the students.
And whilst we think we might know something of what Cobargo went through at Christmas, this story tells it in a mature, yet passionate way. Words and pictures come together to create some incredible imagery, this is a book for everyone, not just the people of a small town fighting back.”
