Bollon

Welcome to the Bollon Branch!

Bollon is a small town situated on the Balonne Highway, between St George and Cunnamulla. Bollon has a rich history of commitment to ICPA. On the 6th April, 1971, Mr Bunny Powne attended the first meeting which was held in Bourke. In September 1971 Bunny convened a public meeting in Bollon, and the Bollon Branch was formed. He was the first Bollon Branch President, and in 1972 he stepped down from this position to concentrate on ICPA State and Federal Councils.

The achievements of ICPA are well known, however the ongoing issues of Access to Education for Rural and Remote families are still issues for the second generation branch members.
