I am delighted to be able to share with you the final amount raised by the wonderful Twilight Festival an incredible $35,000 which will be used to fund the purchase of a new lighting bar in the Cultural Centre as well as microphones, and towards the refurbishment of a reflection space at the rear of the Mansion.  I reiterate my thanks to everyone who supported this fantastic event.

It is that time of year where we say goodbye to a number of people within our community.  The following staff will be finishing their time at Lowther Hall at the end  of 2014.

Sue-Ann Bruhn
Belinda Burrill
Charles Cobbold
Nick De Dear
Anthea Holub
Hanae Iwamoto
Vikki Killackey
Nick Levy 
Gail McCredden
Cheryl Milburn
Lloyd Mill
Helen McNeill 
Maggie Morgan
Sean Sherlock
Hazel Tsolakis  

Each one of these individuals has made a special contribution to our School and will be greatly missed. Mr Lloyd Mill will be recognised for his 36 years of service to the School at a special event including past staff and Old Grammarians next week. 

I am pleased to be able to introduce to you the staff who will be joining us in 2015, some of whom have already begun with us this week.  I am sure that they will each be a wonderful asset to our community. A brief profile of each staff member is included on the following page.   

I am looking forward to our forthcoming Christmas celebrations, particularly the Kinder to Year 3 Christmas service tomorrow and our annual Carols Service next Thursday where I hope to be able to catch up with many of you.
