The old adage don’t cry over spilled milk is very wise indeed and the message is simple… the only time we have any power to enact change is before something happens.
Something is about to happen, the milk is spilling, but it’s not spilled yet! As we have shared before, it is important that the community stands up and shows their desire for a much needed proposed community facility precinct for Sippy Downs – by completing a letter of support which can be completed via the link below.
Submitted letters of support will be used to demonstrate community interest to the council.
This link also includes images and information on the proposal.

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 ( email@example.com ) or Chris Hey ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) on 07 5453 3222 or alternatively Chancellor State College P&C ( email@example.com ) on 07 5453 3241.
