It was all happening at Wamuran State School today as the community celebrated their school centenary. We had students from as long ago as the 1920s and 30s, long serving former teachers like Mr Philip Forbes, former Principals (there has been 28 in all), a great welcome and smoking ceremony from Jinibara man BJ Murphy and the singing of the school song. We even resurrected the “Pineapple Queen” as a way of thanking Estelle Cuffe - Centenary Committee Chairperson - and Amy Wilschefski - who spent countless hours documenting the history of the Wamuran community and school. 🍍 🍍 🎂 🎉 ...

Last week we farewelled my friend, Annette Brodie. Annette was a stalwart of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, of the Beerwah Charity Sports Day and of the LNP - Liberal National Party. You’ve heard of “Charlie’s Angels”. Well, alongside her friends Mavis, Marlene and Coral, we often joked that Annette was one of “Andrew’s Angels”. Now she really is. Thank you, Annette. We love you. We miss you. Rest easy. 😞 ... See MoreSee Less

What a win for our region! Go the Dolphins NRL! 17th NRL team! Congratulations and thanks to Chairman Bob Jones, General Manager Terry Reader, Mayor Peter Flannery and the crew at Moreton Bay Regional Council. I’ve supported the Parramatta Eels all my life. But no longer. I’ll be signing up with the Dolphins. A truly wonderful outcome for grassroots community sport across our region! 🏉 🐬 ... See MoreSee Less
