  • We're really excited to be a part of the Macleay River Fesival tomorrow. Kempsey TAFE students will be running a Media Hub doing festival media coverage (on this page too!), a recycled clothing swap, a paper making demonstration and sales and the ESL students have recorded river and water stories from their country of origin which will screen in the film tent. We'll have an info stand, so make sure you come along and say hi- we're a friendly bunch :) #nctafe #expressyourself #macleayriverfestival #macleayvalley #kempsey
