There is a wonderful African proverb ‘It takes a village to raise a child’. It recognises that parenting is a communal affair, much like the City of Burnside and Campbelltown City Council recognised the ‘Village’ feel Magill exudes.
This led the councils to collaborate and form the Magill Village Partnership, they recognised the area is rich in social and cultural heritage, which presented a unique opportunity to create an exemplar ‘Village’ model.
