In 1978 disadvantaged primary schools in the Northern Metropolitan area of Melbourne received supplementary grants programme which provided funding with the aim to enable greater equality of opportunity and develop closer ties with parents and the community. Featured is Lyndall Hall, a sub-school of Brunswick East High School and a camp held at Halls Gap. The Northern Metropolitan area covers the muncipalities of Coburg, Preston, Northcote, Heidelberg, Broadmeadows, Whittlesea and Eltham. 79 schools in this region are classiified as disadvantaged. Includes interview with Phillip Chislett from Northcote High Scool, Jan Andrews, Jan Cleeland and Bruce Westerman from Camp Meadows Primary School.

There are some sound issues.
