I have been lucky to have had two years as President and it’s time to pass the baton. It’s great to see St Georges Hall finally being refurbished. I’m proud of the not-so-new school electronic sign and the parent school communications improvements being introduced. I’m proud of all the work that our subcommittees have done to support the school – from ebooks and stoves to drum kits and sound systems to gardening and pressure cleaning.

I’ve enjoyed meeting other parents at the annual World Earth Festival, at the Studio Theatre Café and laughing our heads off at Comedy for a Cause (who knew that Steve Martin was masquerading as Mr Shields who was pretending to be Mr Gray??). It’s been a privilege to get to know all the other parents on the P&C Executive over the years. It’s been wonderful to work closely with the school executive team. Finally a huge thank you to all those parents who get involved in big ways and small: from running or volunteering or baking for WEF, to helping out on working bees, to contributing food for lunches for the teaching and admin staff, to organising events, to volunteering on the café during Showcase or Orientation, to being a P&C year rep or involved in one of our sub-committees or on the Executive, to counting the cash or writing the minutes, to coming to our meetings or just responding on Google Groups to a request for a flute tutor. The P&C is a community, so thank you all for being involved and making it so strong.
