His Royal Highness Prince Edward Visits Schools in Southern Tasmania

Thanks to St Aloysius Catholic College for the invitation to attend His Royal Highness Prince Edward’s visit to acknowledge the work of schools and volunteers who are delivering the The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award in Southern Tasmania.

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award promotes youth personal development through participation in community service, physical activity, expedition and skills.

Lovely to catch up with students and teachers from St Aloysius Catholic College, Fahan School Hobart Australia, Southern Christian College, Huonville High School and other groups.

Blackmans Bay Primary School Leavers Assembly

Always a pleasure to attend the end of year/Grade 6 leavers assembly at my children’s old school – Blackmans Bay Primary.
Awards recognising an astounding array of skills and talent across the board were plentiful. Best of luck for the future to all and a safe and happy Christmas to the whole school community.
That’s the last school assembly for me for 2017!

Illawarra Primary School Final Assembly

Second last school assembly for the year for me. Not particularly good photo but I had a lovely time at Illawarra Primary School this morning.
Best wishes and farewell to all the Grade 6 leavers. Thankyou to all the staff and the broader school community for the great work undertaken through 2017. Safe and happy Christmas to all.

Rowallan Park Christmas Lunch

It was a great pleasure to be invited to the Rowallan Park Christmas lunch yesterday. Thank you to the parishioners for such lovely food and company . It was wonderful to catch up with a number of friends. I also met (newish) Minister Michael and Sue…I think we might get on OK! You are an amazing inclusive community and I look forward to working with you as you develop further.
