Uncle Jim Ridgeway and his son, Tony  were among the first group to graduate with a Certificate I in Gathang. Throughout 2011, they drove many hours every fortnight Uncle Jim and Tony Ridgeway to attend the class in Taree, and still found time to produce an animated DVD of Gathang language stories, with Jeremy Saunders. It was so good to have these two enthusiastic language learners in the class, particularly when Uncle Jim  brought out the banjo! Uncle Jim and Tony are  shown here with team teachers Jeremy Saunders and  Julie Long.
