Thank you very much to Jan Owen AM who presented a thought provoking and reassuring discussion on the future of work for young Australians, at the P&F term talk last week. A number of parents have asked for further links to the Foundation for Young Australians’ work so please visit their website at https://www.fya.org.au/. Our next P&F Term meeting and talk will be on 5 November in the Lecture Theatre, from 7.00pm.

My term as President of the P&F will conclude at the P&F’s next AGM in March 2020. The P&F is seeking candidates interested in taking on the President’s role. It is a two year commitment and I would be delighted to talk to any parent from SCEGGS who would like to find out more about the role. Please contact me on 0408 291196 or by email penny@gerstle.com.au.

Festival on Forbes Logo

Did you know our primary aim for this year’s Green Festival on Forbes on Sunday 25 August is to reduce rubbish going to landfill by 50%? There are so many ways the whole SCEGGS community can help us achieve this goal.

BYO Water Bottle and Keep Cup
Our wonderful Green Team have organised two Sydney Water refill stations for the Festival on Forbes plus all the school’s regular water bubblers to allow everyone at the fair to refill their water bottles for free!

Please remember to bring your own Keep Cup or reusable cup along for your coffees and hot drinks. There will be a free mug swap too, just pick up a clean mug from one of the baskets beside a coffee cart and hand it to the barista.

And don’t worry if you forget, there will be reusable water bottles and keep cups for sale. Single use cups will also be available, along with separate waste bins for the cups and the plastic lids.

Make sure to pop into our Enviro Stall where lots of interesting things will be happening all day, with great things to buy to help save our planet.

NOT SO FUN FACT: Australians consume more than 50,000 cups of take away coffee every half hour. An estimated 1 billion takeaway cups end up in landfill every year in Australia, taking more than 50 years to break down. Can you believe the plastic lids take 500 years to breakdown?

A big thank you to our wonderful Green Team – Ulrika Aroney, Juliet Schmidt and Sarah Stewart-Jones for all their hard work to date, you are doing an awesome job!

The P&F are proud to present Jan Owen AM Hon DLitt as the Term II Guest Speaker.

Jan Owen is the CEO of the Foundation of Young Australians, (FYA) a social entrepreneur, innovator, influencer and author ( Every Childhood Lasts a Lifetime and The Future Chasers). Jan will be discussing the future of work for young Australians.
For those not familiar with Jan’s work, her lifework work has been dedicated to unleashing the talent of young people, propelling social innovation and entrepreneurship and revolutionising education.

At the helm of FYA for the past eight years, Jan has led the organisation’s strategic mission to enable young people to create, lead and thrive into the future. This has included ground-breaking research about the future of work and education for young Australians, the largest in-school entrepreneurship and youth social enterprise programs in Australia and the launch of several new initiatives like YLab.

In 2018 Jan was recognised as one of Australia’s “True Leaders” and was the recipient of the Inaugural Australian Financial Review and Westpac “Women of Influence” in 2012. Adding to her accolades, are honorary Doctorates from the University of Sydney and Murdoch University in Perth and membership to the Order of Australia in 2000 for her services to the Australian community.

There is no cost for this evening but we do ask that you RSVP for catering purposes via https://www.trybooking.com/BDARR

So, join us from 7.30pm on Tuesday 11 June in the Lecture Theatre to hear from this game-changer.

As the year draws to a close, the P&F would like to thank Class Parents for all their hard work during 2018. We have seen a wonderful mix of picnics, parties, coffee mornings, community events, movie nights and  family sporting activities during the year and all have been organised by our dedicated Class Parents.  We cannot thank them enough for all they do to continue the SCEGGS tradition of warm and inclusive community get-togethers.  We have a full contingent of Class Parents for almost all Year groups for 2019 too and we look forward to more fun in 2019.

2019 is of course a Festival on Forbes year and work to organise the Festival is well underway. If you would like to join the organising committee, we still have plenty of roles to fill so please email me at pgerstle@optusnet.com.au or call me at any time on 0408 29 11 96.

Finally and most importantly, the P&F would like to thank the wonderful teachers and staff of our School for all their hard work during 2018. A SCEGGS school year is always so busy and staff across SCEGGS put in an extraordinary amount of time and effort to ensure our students have every opportunity to participate and learn.  We hope all the staff have a restful break over the summer holidays, and wish you all a merry Christmas and  the happiest of New Years.  Till next year, with deepest gratitude,

Penny Gerstle
P&F President
