Just a brief note to express a heartfelt 'thank you' to our Principal, Catherine, the entire school community and especially the wonderful ladies of the P&F, for the uniform-free day and sausage sizzle held recently which raised $550 for those continuing to be affected by severe drought in our neighbouring Gulf Savannah Parish. Angela, Alicia and I have just returned from a two week pastoral visit to individuals and families on cattle stations and in the various townships between Mt Surprise and Gregory Downs. This entire region remains drought declared. Recovery from this drought, even if it breaks during the forthcoming wet season, will take a number of years as many herds are slowly rebuilt. Some of the money which our school community raised was used to purchase fruit and vegie packs for family-held stations and the balance will be retained for subsequent visits. These packs are always greatly appreciated because they show our care and concern, albeit in a small way. Knowing that others care can make all the difference when things look bleak! So on their behalf, thank you once again to everyone involved. May God bless you all!
