Bomaderry High is a modern country comprehensive high school on the south coast of NSW near Nowra, serving the educational needs of students living in the Bomaderry, Berry, Shoalhaven Heads, Cambewarra and Kangaroo Valley areas. 

Vincentia High School is a comprehensive community high school in Jervis Bay, serving a number of communities in the Bay and Basin, Tomerong and Sussex Inlet areas. 

The Project

With the support of Bundanon Trust, celebrated poet and hip-hop artist SOLO and The Red Room Company's Artistic Director, Johanna Featherstone, hosted a special edition of our creative literacy program, Red Room Education, at the Bundanon Homestead. Students from Bomaderry High School, Shoalhaven High School and Vincentia High School will create new poems for The Disappearing, a free app that investigates things people, places and things that vanish before our very eyes.
