Cathy and Rebecca have been facilitating the Journey of Hope Program at school for the past eight weeks. They remarked on what a happy and positive environment they felt was being created for the little learners and that, together with the community, a wonderful job of protecting the children from the many possible impacts of the COVID-19 world we are currently all living in. The focus has been on developing the children's resilience and this will benefit them for life.

The school is now embarking on the next four year School Excellence Planning Cycle, gathering information and evidence from all members of the school community about how they are tracking in areas such as student performance, wellbeing and community engagement.

More support for RSL
Old Bar RSL Sub-branch meat raffle ticket sellers again received a pleasant surprise last Saturday when they learned that an anonymous donor had paid for the meat tray prizes. This has happened on more than one occasion recently. The support from businesses and the general public is very gratifying as this sub-branch continues to grow and flourish.
