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.
