HSC exams done and dusted

Year 12 students have walked out of their school gates for the last time following the completion of the Higher School Certificate examinations last Wednesday, November 5.

The culmination of 13 years of schooling came down to just three and a half weeks of examinations.

While most students finished their final exam before last Wednesday, those unlucky enough to study information and digital technology as well as entertainment industry had to wait out the entire three and a half weeks.

Among those students was Picton High School’s Josh Monteforte, 16, Lorann McCann, 17, Hannah Wood, 18 and Will Thomson, 18.

It was a case of mixed emotions for Hannah.

‘‘I’m happy about it but it hasn’t really sunk in,’’ she said.

‘‘I’m excited too because it feels like it’s been a long time coming.’’

For 17-year-old Lorann it was time to hit the pub — but only for a meal for the under-aged local.

‘‘I’m glad it’s over to be honest,’’ she said.

‘‘I’m really relaxed and calm now.’’

The next challenge for Lorann will be deciding whether to pursue a career in the arts or teaching.

‘‘I always wanted to be a teacher but I have an interview with NIDA [the National Institute of Dramatic Art] for stage management,’’ she said.

‘‘Now I have all these options to choose.’’

For Josh, there is still one year left of schooling at least.

The 16-year-old, year 11 student sat his information and digital technology a year early.

He saw both the positive and negatives of one more year at high school.

‘‘It’s a bit annoying because I can’t do anything till next year but when you think about it, it’s one down,’’ he said.

‘‘I’ll have less of a load [next year].’’

2014 Remembrance Day commemorations

The Grenfell RSL will be commemorating Remembrance Day with a Service at Memorial Park on Tuesday the 11th of November 2014 at 11am. Members of the public are of course welcome to join us as we come together to remember the sacrifice of those who have died for Australia in wars and conflicts.
Nanjing Night Net

At 11am on the 11 November 1918 the guns on the Western Front fell silent after more than four years of continuous warfare. After the end of World War 11, the Australian and British governments changed the name to Remembrance Day, a title that is more appropriate for a day when we commemorate all war dead.

The Service will involve the Army Cadets, the Town Band Buglers and students from local schools. The Service will take approximately 30 minutes.

Poppies, pens and brooches will be available at the RSL street stall on Friday and Saturday morning and at Memorial Park prior to the Service.

The RSL will be having a Remembrance Day Dinner at the Bowling Club on Tuesday the 11th of November, commencing at 7pm. There will be guest speakers and Grenfell Cadet Platoon, Cadet of the Year.

Bookings are essential for catering purposes and can be made by telephoning before Sunday the 9th at the latest.

DON FORSYTH ON 63432374 OR RON HUCKLE ON 63432662.

All veterans, ex-serviceman and women, their relatives and friends, as well as relatives and friends of deceased veterans are welcome.



The RSL is now seeking the names of personnel from within the Shire who have qualified for

Inclusion on the Roll of Honour at Memorial Park.

Names already gathered are Sheree Bateman, Maurice Reynolds, K Rolls and James Forsyth.
