Year 6 stu­dents drop in for a bit of a chat

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

I am writ­ing to con­grat­u­late Ju­lia Leu for be­ing voted in as Mayor of the Dou­glas Shire in last Satur­day’s lo­cal elec­tion.

I have al­ready con­tacted her per­son­ally to con­grat­u­late her and to as­sure her that if there is any­thing I can do to help over the next four years she knows she only has to ask. Af­ter all it’s the Shire that mat­ters.

And fi­nally I would like to say a huge thank you to all the peo­ple helped dur­ing my cam­paign and to all the res­i­dents who voted for me.

We now have to join forces with the new coun­cil to help en­sure the Shire is the win­ner. On be­half of the Year 6 stu­dents at Port Dou­glas State School that vis­ited your of­fice on Thurs­day, March 10, thank you Shane Ni­chols for telling us all about the Gazette and how you com­pile the ar­ti­cles and pa­per for pro­duc­tion each week.

Thank you also to An­nette from the Dou­glas Shire His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety at the Old Court­house Mu­seum for in­form­ing us about Ellen Thom­son, the first and only women to be hanged in Queens­land. An­nette also told us about the bulb and mir­rors in the . his­toric light­house that were once on Low Isles. It was a great day. We had a fan­tas­tic time and you both re­ally im­pressed us all.
