Ed­u­ca­tor awarded for 35 years ser­vice

Mansfield Courier - - Health & Beauty Guide -

LAST week lo­cal res­i­dent and Jamieson Pri­mary School prin­ci­pal Genevieve Bol­well re­ceived an award recog­nis­ing her 35 years of ded­i­cated ser­vice to the Vic­to­rian Ed­u­ca­tion Depart­ment.

The award was pre­sented by the re­gional di­rec­tor of ed­u­ca­tion Terry Ben­nett.

Her 35 year ten­ure saw Genevieve’s four chil­dren and four grand­chil­dren ed­u­cated at Jamieson Pri­mary School.

Prior to Genevieve com­ing to Jamieson Pri­mary School she was head of Woods Point Pri­mary School for three years.

Genevieve drove from Jamieson daily, through ex­tra­or­di­nary haz­ardous road conditions from snow over the road, tyre punc­tures, fallen trees over the road and rock slides the most alarm­ing of all was when the in­fa­mous jail es­capees were be­ing tracked, Genevieve was told to “windup your win­dows and drive with­out stop­ping” by at­tend­ing po­lice of­fi­cers, to men­tion a few.

Her in­domitable de­ter­mi­na­tion drove her to make sure the stu­dents at­tend­ing Woods Point Pri­mary School were go­ing to re­ceive a com­plete rounded ed­u­ca­tion.

A re­mark­able achieve­ment.

Con­grat­u­la­tions.

IT was with sad­ness the Kev­ing­ton and sur­round­ing com­mu­ni­ties were in­formed of the re­cent pass­ing of a much loved Eileen Poole, fol­low­ing ill­ness.

The Poole fam­ily are syn­ony­mous with the Kev­ing­ton Ho­tel.

Eileen and her hus­band Doug Poole resided in Kev­ing­ton for many years. She will be sadly missed. Eileen was an en­gag­ing and much loved mem­ber of the Poole fam­ily, son Wayne and daugh­ter in law Lyn-Marie are the cur­rent pro­pri­etors of the Kev­ing­ton Ho­tel.

A ser­vice to cel­e­brate Eileen’s life was held at Saint Joseph’s Church in Be­nalla on Mon­day.

Our thoughts and prayers are with her fam­ily.

In God’s Care.

LAST Wed­nes­day, the stu­dents at Jamieson Pri­mary School held a very ex­cit­ing expo the topic was, The Age of Dis­cov­ery.

A large num­ber of par­ents and friends of the school at­tended the expo and were en­thralled at the com­pre­hen­sive pre­sen­ta­tions, by the stu­dents.

The stu­dents cooked and pro­vided ship bis­cuits (hard tack) for the guests, to un­der­stand the di­etary pro­vi­sions for crew mem­bers at the time.

Apart from the hard­ship and pri­va­tions of sail­ing the high seas, the hard tack bis­cuits were the last draw no vol­un­teers to take on New Age Dis­cov­ery, with­out a de­cent chef on board.

THE Kev­ing­ton and Jamieson com­mu­nity are send­ing get well wishes to Irene Poole, who is re­cov­er­ing from an ill­ness, at Wan­garatta Hos­pi­tal.

Part­ner De­nis Tucker and Irene’s daugh­ters El­iz­a­beth and Bern­sie have been at her bed­side.

We wish her a speedy re­cov­ery.

A LARGE bright yel­low heli­copter was very ac­tive in Jamieson over the week­end,

The chop­per made a num­ber of sor­ties over the town­ship, it is be­lieved to have been a re­con­nais­sance of power lines in the area.

NEXT Tues­day there will be three meet­ings in the Jamieson Memo­rial Hall.

The Spring Ball com­mit­tee will meet at 4:30, Jamieson com­mu­nity group AGM 6:30 and Com­mu­nity Group meet­ing fol­lows at 7pm.

HE ski­ing classes at Mt Buller for Jamieson Pri­mary School will not be held this week.

The school prin­ci­pal and ad­min­is­tra­tive staff will be at­tend­ing a two day train­ing sem­i­nar ‘PTC’ Pro­fes­sional Learn­ing Com­mu­ni­ties, at Pin­na­cle Val­ley Re­sort.

THE clients at the Jamieson Brew­ery and Bistro have been de­lighted with one of Dar­ren Kerr’s brews.

The Irish Red brew is cre­at­ing an Irish fol­low­ing; it was heard “this is as close to Ire­land as we’ll be for some time”.

JAWBREAKER­S: Jamieson student Charley Gar­ito was mak­ing ‘Ships Bis­cuits’ for the pri­mary school expo.
