2nd Chance – Introduction to Electric Bikes group ride at Sippy Downs

2nd Chance – Introduction to Electric Bikes group ride at Sippy Downs

As published back on the 20th of September The Sunshine Coast Environment Council (SCEC) has scheduled an “Introduction to Electric Bikes” group ride at Sippy Downs as part of this year’s Bike Week events. We have received funding from the Sunshine Coast Council to deliver 12 monthly rides across the region, and they are part of SCEC’s commitment to encouraging more sustainable transport choices for some journeys.

The first Sippy Downs ride was cancelled due to the weather with a second opportunity now available from 8 am to 10 am on Sunday 11 November, departing from Windmill Park, Oxford Close, Sippy Downs with a lovely ride scheduled along the lake, and thence into Brightwater estate.

The rides are free to participants, and bikes and helmets are supplied.  SCEC Reps will commence with a technical and safety briefing and finish with a friendly morning tea.

There are a LIMITED number of positions with just 10 spots available so bookings will fill up fast.

Bookings can be made by emailing etherealcrew@gmail.com or telephoning 0407116105.

SDDCA President Matthew Druce said “We cannot urge the community strongly enough to get along to this community meeting and SDDCA AGM to get a true and accurate snapshot of exactly what is happening locally, especially the two presentations on proposed community facilities for Sippy Downs.

Establishment of much needed community facilities for Sippy Downs is welcome news. We are calling on residents to come along and be involved in the progression of these facilities.

Open to each and every member of the community from visitors to residents and business representatives, this evening always presents a fantastic opportunity for locals to stay up to date with what has, is and will be happening locally.

Chancellor State College | Bullying Info Session

Chancellor State College | Bullying Info Session

Bullying is an important topic and the upcoming Bullying Info Session is a great place for Chancellor State College parents to gain some insight into this troubling social issue. The consequences that can result from unaddressed bullying can and do have devastating, debilitating and lasting effects on the many young heart and minds who have experienced it and in the most extreme cases can end the tragic loss of life.

Over recent years bullying has been a focus of a considerable amount of research both nationally and internationally with data collected across 40 countries showing that Australian primary schools had the highest reported incidents of bullying in the world (Mullis, Martin, & Foy, 2008).

In recent months there has been what appears to be an increase in bullying at Chancellor State School based upon anecdotal evidence published by parents across a number of local social media groups so the announcement of an upcoming parent information session on bullying at Chancellor is a welcome opportunity for parents to get better educated.

The Session will be covering cyberbullying, cyber safety, responsible social media usage, safe social networking, how to beat a bully in addition to covering Australian law and the potential consequences of being a bully.

This event is to be held on Friday the 22nd of June between 2 and 3 p.m. at Chancellor State College Primary Campus ( Scholars Drive Sippy Downs ) library in the Blue Room.

In a post on the Chancellor State College Parents & Citizens’ Association Facebook Page on Friday the question was asked whether there are other sessions planned for a night time session with an official response stating that “… unfortunately the times of the session are limited due to availability of the presenters. However if there is an interest from our community we can look to hold an evening session on this topic in the near future…”

If you are a local parent with kids at Chancellor State School and you are unable to attend the upcoming early afternoon session due to picking up kids at high school, working or other commitments we strongly recommend you contact the school or P&C using the details listed below and express your interest.

For more information on this event please contact school management representatives Jamie Field ( jfield85@eq.edu.au ) or Chris Hey ( jfield85@eq.edu.au ) on 07 5453 3222 or alternatively Chancellor State College P&C ( pandc@chancellorsc.eq.edu.au ) on 07 5453 3241.
