A little creation goes a long way
BORIS the ram from the Agriculture plot is modelling for the drawing class, the school oval is full of stilt walkers and the corridor to the principal's office is blocked by the beading class.
As it has done every January for the last five years, Bellingen High School has morphed into the main campus for the annual Camp Creative, which this year has 48 classes sprawling as far afield as the Promised Land.
The week-long summer school has attracted people of all ages and as far away as New Zealand and Sweden to Bellingen this week to take up a new interest or develop an old one, make friends and enjoy the creative process.
Camp Creative vicepresident Gillian Helfgott said the January 17-22 camp was "going like a rocket" with record numbers of more than 850 students and 50 tutors and a great atmosphere around the camp.
Mrs Helfgott said organisers were keen to see as many mem- bers of the public as possible at the free Camp Creative street party in the park in front of the Bellingen Council Chambers on Friday night.
The two-hour street party will start at 6pm and will give everyone a chance to see some of the Camp Creative tutors performing.
