One of the first things that hit me on my return was how busy the term has been and how much had been accomplished. When you are in the school environment all the time you just absorb that life is full on and it's not until you take a break away from it, and then return, that it hits you again about how busy everyone is and how many things we manage to squeeze into a short space of time.
Eurobodalla Leadership Dinner
Last night schools, both primary and high school from across the Eurobodalla gathered to celebrate leadership and learning. During the dinner, school leaders were presented with a gift and a certificate by Andrew Constance. Our school was represented by two of our captains Charlie Jones and Ruby Jacobs. Congratulations to both of these fine young people.
A special feature of the dinner involved the recognition of a Broulee Public School Ambassador. This honour was awarded to Mr David McCann.
David was introduced to our school in 2005 by his close friends Mavis and Syd Hayes who are our School Patrons. Since that time he has attended our school on a weekly basis volunteering his time in numerous ways. Initially he became involved in Community Tutoring, working with students each week in both Literacy and Numeracy. This entailed hearing students read, discussing all aspects of the text, as well as assisting students in certain aspects of Numeracy. David also involved himself in learning about the Multi-Lit program in 2006 and attended every week to implement this program with students. He has a keen interest in language and writing and has volunteered his time to assist some creative writers with extra writing opportunities. For all those 11 years he has been a valuable asset to our classrooms and our school and countless students have benefited from his assistance. His positive disposition and eagerness to enthuse and help students is priceless. Thanks so much David for the value you place on education and learning and for all that you do for our school and students.
