As the school year draws to a close I would like to wish you happiness and joy at this time when we focus on what really matters to us, the quality relationships we have with those we love and care for.

I am pleased to advise you that I have recruited high quality staff, so we are on track to begin the year with five mainstream classes and three support classes.

I am looking forward to seeing you all at our beautiful new school in January. Open times will be posted in early January.

Best Wishes Rose Manousaridis, Principal.

WHAT TO DO IF YOU BECOME A VICTIM OF MALICIOUS DAMAGE…

Malicious Damage is a senseless and often inconvenient and expensive crime for the victim. Below are steps you should take if you become a victim of malicious damage.

1/ PHOTOGRAPH the damage. Whether it is graffiti, an egging incident, or whether they have smashed a window or broken your letterbox. You can keep the photograph for your own records, if your insurance company wishes to see them, or if police contact you at a later stage to look at the damage themselves.

2/ CHECK if there is any CCTV Footage in the area where the damage occurred or if you have any witnesses to the incident such as a neighbour.

3/ CONSIDER if you have any suspects in mind. Has someone previously threatened to slash your tyres for example?

4/ CALL the Police Assistance Line on 131 444 (24/7) to make a report over the phone and obtain an EVENT NUMBER. You will need an event number to make an insurance claim.

You can also now easily and conveniently report instances of MALICIOUS DAMAGE through the NSW Police Force Community Portal at https://portal.police.nsw.gov.au/

Do you have information about MALICIOUS DAMAGE crimes that would help police? You can report online at www.nsw.crimestoppers.com.au or call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 (24/7).

Great to see the WP school starting to deliver for our community! It’s been a long time coming!













Our first Kindergarten Orientation session with the children was fantastic. While the children spent time with the teachers, parents listened to an information session from the Cancer Council about packing a Healthy Lunchbox. Afterwards they experienced some of the learning activities their children will be experiencing. They left with lots of ideas to try at home. Looking forward to doing it all again on Wednesday 6 December 9.15 – 10.45.

Our park was on the agenda in State Parliament this week.

8000 people in a suburb on a peninsula and without a park!

The plight of Wentworth Point is a familiar one to many people across Sydney who are witnessing rapid levels of development but without the services to support them.

ADF Counter Terrorism exercise at Sydney Olympic Park

The Australian Defence Force will be conducting an exercise named MARS OLYMPICS 2017 over the period 13 – 17 Nov 2017, which will involve venues at Sydney Olympic Park.

The 2 Commando Regiment’s Counter Terrorism’s Tactical Assault Group-East (TAG-E) will be conducting an exercise named MARS OLYMPICS 2017 over the period 13 -17 Nov 2017. This exercise MARS OLYMPICS will consist of several fall mission profiles utilising multiple venues throughout Sydney and is designed to facilitate the handover/takeover of domestic counter-terrorism responsibilities within the ADF. In addition, this exercise will involve the NSW Police and emergency services and the Transport for NSW. This exercise provides an invaluable opportunity to facilitate a combined government response to a domestic terrorism incident within the Sydney metro area.

The training is designed to test the capabilities and response options available to government and as a result will ensure that the ADF Domestic Counter Terrorism is exercised in realistic and demanding exercise scenarios. The following non-Defence training areas and civilian infrastructure will be utilised at Sydney Olympic Park for the conduct MARS OLYMPICS 2017:
– Spotless Stadium
– Olympic Park station.

Your support for this exercise is greatly appreciated in providing civilian infrastructure that is critical to this training activity and will allow the ADF has an operationally capable domestic counter terrorism option available to the Australian and NSW Government. The public should not be alarmed if they see low-flying helicopters, vehicles and military personnel or hear the associated noise of the helicopters, blank gunfire and pyrotechnics. Additional parts of this training will occur in the Parramatta, Holsworthy/Liverpool and Hunter regions.

The ADF is unable to provide media access or further information, including specific timings, regarding this training in order to protect operational tactics, techniques and procedures. Individuals with concerns should contact: army.contact@defence.gov.au.
