Today we will be raising our flag to half mast to honour Senior Constable Brett Forte who was tragically killed whilst perfoming his duty. 

Congratulations to Mrs Kessell and her team for an amazing bush dance, it was a great event.

Next term I will be having Wednesdays off due to medical reasons, and if I do not do anything about it, this condition will come back, so I will be taking each Wednesday off to rest and recover, so Mr Guy will be prinicipal with Mr Good becoming deputy principal.

Todays parade focus is about tact.  Tact is about thinking beforing speaking as often it is not okay to say whatever pops into your head, we should learn to think before we speak and sometimes it is better to be silent and at times especially when we are being truthful make sure we are not getting to be hurtful to others feelings and be sensitive.  If you are going to say anything make sure it is true, kind, helpful, inspiring and necessary.  Our clip today reflects this thinking before speaking and as you watch think have there been times I should have thought about that before saying that, we all do it it is a very simple message but a powerful one.
