August out and about

This month the Payneham City Concert Band held their AGM at the Payneham Senior Citizens Club, with many members turning out to hear about the year so far.

As a proud patron of the PCCB I was pleased to attend the meeting, have a chat with many of the enthusiastic band members and discuss what the rest of year may hold. If you’re interested in learning more about what’s planned in the upcoming months,  I encourage you to visit the PCCB website and look at their concert calendar.

Well done to the PCCB!

On Sunday 16th August I visited the Payneham RSL to commemorate the Battle of Long Tan. Thanks to Reg and the rest of the Payneham RSL team for facilitating such a memorable service.  

It was National Book Week in August, and I was delighted to read to the youngsters at East Adelaide Primary School. I was impressed to meet such an enthusiastic group of students who were very excited about reading – it’s a credit to the school and parents.

The St Joseph’s Memorial School came into Parliament House for a debate and tour this month – the year 6 and 7 classes thoroughly enjoyed their time, and were a great group to show around. The Bill debated was A Bill for an Act to change the law to move Year 7 from primary school to high school.

Parliament resumes again in September after the winter break, and I look forward to updating you with the developments.
