Ruth and Karl are getting married!
A truly special ‘island couple’, Ruth and Karl have contributed to the quality and colour of our community over the past decade through such unforgettables as the Island Café, the Rocky Horror Show and Kindy Market Fair Day.

Their wedding is set to take place on our beautiful Scotland Island over the weekend 23-24 January 2010.

There will be many guests travelling to the wedding and they will all need a place to stay, some for one night some for two

Thus, dear friends, you are presented with a wonderful opportunity to contribute to this very special occasion by offering one or more wedding guests that place to stay.

This can mean:
  • Providing a room or ‘granny flat’ with or without charge
  • Let a couple or family ‘house sit’
  • House swap
  • Offer guests to camp on your land
If you think you can help, please contact Camilla Ryberg on 0435 182 567 or 9979 2231 or camillaethic@gmail.com.

All offers much appreciated!

English Tutoring on the Island

Do your children need extra help with their English schoolwork?

I am an English teacher from Pymble Ladies College, currently on maternity leave and available for tutoring on the island.

I have experience of teaching Year Seven through to Year Twelve, including Standard, Advanced, Extension One and Extension Two English modules.  I can work to support the individual needs of your child in your own home or at my place on Florence Terrace.  I love literature and I can help your children to embrace the wonderful world of words too!

I only realistically have time to take on three or four students, so book in early to secure a place.

Contact Barbara Labram on 0400 377 056 for more information.
