SCHOLORSHIP ICING ON THE CAKE

WOOHOOOOO !!!!!
Today we went to an introduction at Kalamunda High School for all the chidren that had been successful in gaining a place in the Academic Excellence Program.
All the kids received a certificate which was awesome.
Then they announced that there were 6 scholarships to be awarded. We had not been told anything about this so were very surprised.
And guess what - yep - CONNOR WON ONE!!!!!
I am currently one very excited mummy and Connor had the biggest grin on his face.
I am so proud of my beautiful boy - YOU ROCK SON!!!!!

ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE PROGRAMME

Hi Everyone
Well I know it has been a long time since I have blogged but facebook has gotten the better of me LOL.
But I wanted to brag everywhere I could about my news today.
A few weeks ago Connor went and sat some exams to see if he was eligible for the Academic Excellence Programme at Kalamunda Senior High School in 2011.
Well today HE WAS ACCEPTED!!!!!
They also give you your actual results which just spun me out.
Connor achieved better than 99% of children they tested from across Australia in the literacy test and better than 98% in the numeracy test. In the third test he received better than 89% of students. I was absolutely amazerd and needless to say very very proud.
Hope everyone receives some news as good as I did today.
Take care
Maursie xoxo

GENEROSITY BRAGGING!!!

Well I just wanted to share with everyone how proud I am of the people that I work with.
When the Victorian bushfires happened we were all given the option of donating over a two month period direct from our pays - and the company would match our donations cent for cent.
Today at work I read a progress report and can proudly say that staff have donated $90,000 dollars!!!!!
This being matched by the company our contribution to date is $180,000!!!!!!
I am so proud of those that I work with that have been so generous.
You guys rock.
