Summary Note "Welcome to Canterbury Boys High, Sydney, Prime Minster John Howard's old school and the setting for this compelling 4 part documentary series. Filmed with unprecedented access over a year, "Our Boys" follows the lives of five students and their teachers at this cash-strapped government school in Sydney's inner west. Canterbury Boys has a rich mix of nationalities : 90 percent of the boys come from non-english speaking backgrounds, many are refugees or come from disadvantaged homes. Over four episodes "Our Boys" tells the inside story of today's public education system, a school 'starved of funds', boys 'at risk' and teachers going far beyond their traditional classroom roles." - DVD back cover.
