Last night was one of the best nights I’ve had. For the first time – YES! THE FIRST TIME – I saw the Tiddas perform. They performed as part of a special tour with Archie Roach releasing the album … They performed back-up for him for the majority of the concert and were fantastic, and then they did a solo set of Inside My Kitchen and Anthem.
We braved the Bunnings Saturday madness today – and at the check out I spied this – the empty box section! Talk about memories.
Tonight was the Annual Awards night. T3&4 received awards.
As I sat there listening to the Principal’s speech, I remembered how many conversations I used to have with (usually) mums at the primary school about Everton Park State High.
So like most folk with kids, for the past 17 years Christmas morning has been a massive ball of anticipation, excitement and joy (and occasionally disappointment). Three little boys and a little girl meant there were cars, tractors, Legos, dinosaurs etc usually strewn across the lounge-room floor in between metres of discarded wrapping paper.
The recent US-based debate about the HPV immunisation initiative has re-kindled some ideas I’ve been playing with in recent years (read a post from Feministe about reactions to the issue) around vaginas, sex, and reproduction.
I’ll be sending this letter to the Principal. Am posting here in case there are other parents who have the same issues at their children’s school.
