This is my very last newsletter as CHAC P&F President. It has been a little tricky keeping you informed about school events since my young adults have left. However, through investigations, it seems like it's full steam ahead with planning for the Wetlands Festival in August this year.
A few things to update you on:
We have received approximately $300 in Container for Change funds, which will be provided to the Waste Warriors- our College's environmental group. They will discuss and vote upon initiatives. I am sure they will keep you informed about their great work in implementing environmental practices around the school.
Trivia Night date claimer: This year, our annual Trivia Night will be held on Friday 15 May and will be BYO food. However, a well-stocked bar will operate throughout the evening. Watch this space for more details, but for now, please mark this date in your diaries. At this stage, if you are able to provide any prize donations, please email us at either: PnF_President@chac.qld.edu.au or PnF_Secretary@chac.qld.edu.au.
I'll leave you with a recent image of Pauline Wyatt (Vice President) and I after completing the 10 km RACQ International Women’s Day Fun Run 2020. It captures a friendship formed through CHAC. I was accompanied on the run by some of my family and bumped into CHAC's Parenti family who was marshalling. Our CHAC families get about!
Thank you for all your support during my time on the CHAC P&F. Many friendships were formed, and I thank those of you who helped harness community spirit and were mindful of being inclusive to all families. To the wonderful students reading the newsletter, there is more magic that happens after school when you find your true career path, so keep that vision in mind as it might help you keep focused when times are tough.
