Scotland Island Kindy
Early Childhood Teachers Required
Our beautiful Community
based Island Kindy is seeking motivated and professional Early
Childhood Teachers to work on a casual basis.
We are a small, nurturing 20 place centre catering for 2-5 year olds.
We’re passionate about play based learning and the promotion of the
Early Learning Framework.
If this interests you please submit your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org or
call 0421526434 to find out more.
The Scotland Island kindy is part of the fabric of the off-shore
community and has been in operation through thick and thin for over 25
years. It is currently undergoing an exciting phase of re-development
with a new Director, new staff, a new committee and some inspiring and
fresh ideas to help bring it into the future. The kindy is a
community concern and relies heavily on strong cooperation from the
The Kindy’s Management Committee is currently in need of some more
members. You don’t have to have children attending the kindy to be on
the Committee, in fact not having children there would make you a
valuable and unbiased Committee Member.
Do you have a particular skill that could be of use to the kindy? Are
you a retired educator with a myriad of valuable information and
knowledge that would benefit the kindy? Perhaps you have a life skill
or an occupational skill which may be advantageous to the kindy.
Committee meetings are held monthly and typically last for 2 hours.
Please contact the Director Rebecca Tringham on email@example.com
or call 0421526434 to express your interest or find out more.
Thanks for all your
I would like to say a huge
thank you for the work done by the "boys" in clearing this year's
household clean up!
I am always amazed to see on how much "memories/junk" we can accumulate
over such a short time... it is wonderful though to see that a lot of
it can be "re-located" by passers by, around the island.
But the huge work done by the ones who have to dispose of it is really
amazing! Even working on weekends to make sure that our lives are back
to normal as quickly as possible is a huge task so, thank you again to
Matt, Scotty, "Waggs", Peter and all the others (sorry I don't know all
of their names).
you stay in the background, we appreciate your hard work!
If you have a problem
with where my boat is tied up please don't damage it - JUST talk to me !
I went down to Bell Wharf the other morning to find the bung had been
removed from my dinghy and one of the securing anchors untied.
boat, in accordance with SIRA and AUSGRID requirements, has been
temporarily re-located along the waterfront and at the time I did this
I made a point of speaking to any water resident who might be
effected. I also spoke with those inshore residents who also moor
there, and explained the position which appeared to be appreciated by
all concerned, so I don't believe it was any one of those who are
directly impacted by the boat's presence.
The problem of this temporary mooring is not of my making as
alternative moorings were not made available for the duration of the
AUSGRID repairs. During the last hiatus in AUSGRID's work I returned it
to the Bell Wharf mooring !
When I found my boat like this I was on an errand for a fellow resident
who is ill and needed supplies for the weekend. This is what for
30 years, I've appreciated about the island: helping each other
what Islanders are renowned for, while damaging mute items for some
perceived wrong, while a criminal act, doesn't resolve the situation in
any sense. If there is a problem tell me because it can't be
unless I know what it is. Although the boat doesn't have a motor
it, I do have one for it, but it is registered which is all that is
required by law for a vessel permanently in the water. I would
add that mine isn't the only dinghy around here that doesn't have a
