Can You Please Help with my School Assignment?

Hi my name is Amber Pye

I am a year 11 student at Riverside girls high school in Gladesville, Sydney.

I am studying geography. You may or may not know that in year 11 geo you must complete an assignment called the SGP (Senior Geography Project) which you have 3 terms to complete and can be focused on whatever you like relating to geography.

My SGP is all about what it is like to live on Scotland Island, hence the reason I am emailing :)

I have to gather both primary and secondary data about my topic so I will be making a visit or two to Scotland Island, to take photos and visit the community centre, within the next few weeks I was wondering if you could possibly get at least one name and number of an individual/family that lives on the island that I could possibly interview. (if more than one that would be great). This interview can happen in person on a weekend or over the phone if need be. These interviews are purely for me to get a better insight to everyday life on the island than web pages give. I would want my interviewee/s to know that they can be completely confidential if they wish. e.g I can change names to protect privacy.

Thanks you so much for your time,
Kind Regards

Amber Pye

Thank you for saving our Tinnie & Kayak

We would like to say thank you to the kind people who have saved both our kayak and tinnie over the last couple of weeks. Someone tied up our kayak on Tennis Beach to stop it floating away when the tide was so high a little while ago and while we were away this week my son got a call to warn us that our boat needed bailing out as the pump wasn't working. We don't know who you are but thank you so much for your thoughtfulness.

It's very much appreciated.
