    Week 10 Thursday March 31st, 2011

    n Monday some of our Year 6 students attended the Young Leaders Day with Mrs Hage. The children told

    me they had a wonderful time and learnt many new strategies for coping with school life. We look forward to putting some of their ideas into practise next term. I would like to thank Mrs Hage for organising this event for her students, it was certainly an early morning for our travellers. Last night the P&C hosted a very successful disco. Thank you to all parents and staff who attended and helped on the night. Next week is the end of term and I would just like to remind all families that attendance at

    school is compulsory and our rolls are checked regularly by the Home School Liaison Officer. If your child is absent from school please remember that you can contact the school office by phone, or send in an absent note. Next week will be very busy with the District Athletics Carnival on Tuesday 5th April and Grandparents day on Friday 8th April.

    O Wakakirri Fundraiser A number of students from Years 2-6 have shown interest in taking part in the Wakakirri Story Book performance in Sydney, led by Miss Jago, later this year. To assist with keeping costs to a minimum we are holding a cake stall fundraiser at Grandparent’s day. We ask if all families would kindly donate a yummy pre cut cake or slice for us to sell during morning tea at Grandparent’s Day next Friday April 8th. We appreciate your continued support of our school, students and Creative Arts.

    Young Leaders Day Our journey began at KFC at 6.45am. I was so tired I

    almost fell asleep standing up!

    The first person to talk to us was Mike Martin he was the

    General Manager of Halogen Foundation of Australia.

    He has had four different careers. He told us to ask

    ourselves would they lead me well or be a really bad


    The second person was Greg Mullins. He started fighting

    fires in 1972 and now he is Commissioner of the NSW Fire

    Brigade. He is living his dream and he earned his position

    by treating people with respect, and they treat you with

    respect in return. He said never forget your family.

    Kurt Fearnley was next to speak to us. Kurt is in a

    wheelchair and yet he has crawled the Kokoda trail,

    something most people who can walk, find difficult. He

    told us that everything you dream is up to you to make

    happen and he also said no matter what is thrown at

    you to think of it as not a mountain but a hump.

    Jessica Watson the youngest person to sail solo around

    the world was the next to speak about her journey and

    the people who helped her prepare for anything the

    ocean and weather could throw at her.

    Our final inspiring person was 2009 So You Think You Can

    Dance winner Tarlia Fowler. Tarlia said to remember to

    always have fun and pass knowledge onto others.

    We had a great time and I learnt a lot from these

    inspiring speakers. Danielle Marsh Yr 6
