Newest Elander Chia Blossom Ryan
Isn’t she lovely!
IT is said that the littlest feet make the biggest footprints in our heart and that is most certainly true of a young lady with very dainty feet who arrived last week.
The keenly anticipated appearance of our newest Elander occurred last Tuesday afternoon, and we’re absolutely thrilled to welcome her.
Chia Blossom Ryan chose very well when she picked Bree and Stevie as her parents, as she’s really struck the jackpot when it comes to two people truly loved and cherished in the community.
Due on Australia Day, she inadvertently distracted us from Triple J’s hottest one hundred and frankly, I can hardly remember who made it to the top ten, but who cares about the radio charts when we find an angel has landed amongst us. Congratulations beautiful Bree and Stevie, and the warmest of welcomes to Chia.
As you can see she is smiling at the world already and those lovely long fingers look like musician’s hands to me.
A work colleague of mine said “I really like the way you celebrate these events as a community,” and that made me feel so happy to be an Elander, and very grateful to announce the safe arrival of a new and quite irresistible addition to our village.
Elands school centenary next year
I COULD say that it’s crept up on me, but I’ve had 99 years notice.
Next year Elands Public School will celebrate 100 years!
2016 sees our centenary, and we’re seeking photos, stories and the input of previous students and staff to help create a really special celebration.
For a small regional school it has really achieved wonderful and wonderous things over the years, and it would be great to collect yarns and images of our kids and their mentors.
The nature of small schools means that the school community is made up of everyone from the teachers and students to the cleaners and bus drivers.
I remember well the surprise party held upon the retirement of well-loved bus driver Bob Cooper, who would wait patiently for the child running late, and loved the children like his own.
We, in turn, loved him for keeping our children safe each day, nurturing their respect and gaining their trust and affection.
It’s stories like these that we would love to hear, and I’m sure there are great anecdotes just waiting to be heard.
Please contact [email protected] to share your memories and book in for the big weekend next year.
In the swim
CONGRATULATIONS to all the Wingham High kids who went head to head at the annual swimming carnival this week.
It’s traditionally a time to dress up, dive in and make a splash, and that seems to me to be a great philosophy for life in general.
