Kinchela Boys Home and Cootamundra Girls Home are established by an amendment to the Aborigines Protection Act (1911) to take Aboriginal children removed from their families. Here Aboriginal children are taught farm labour and domestic work. Many end up as servants in the houses of wealthy city residents. Kinchela Boys Training Home has the same function as the Singleton Home: boys between the ages of 5 and 15 are sent directly to Kinchela or if they have been taken at a younger age they are sent to Bomaderry Children’s Home until they are old enough to be transferred to Kinchela.
