There are many stories of extraordinary effort that lie behind these top marks, but of equal importance, are the stories that lie behind the many results which do not make the headlines.  Stories of incredible devotion by our teachers who spend long hours preparing for and teaching their classes, teaching additional lessons after hours and on weekends, and providing emotional support for young people who are struggling.  The stories also include young people who, against considerable personal or social odds, have achieved the goals set for themselves.  And the stories include the tremendous support from so many parents for their children.

We wish our school leavers all of the best for successful and fulfilled adult lives, and we trust that the values which they absorbed over the past five years will ensure that they continue to make meaningful and sustainable contributions to society.

This month our Interact committee held a National Women's Day Celebration for students, teachers and staff. Students signed their name, pledging to work towards stopping violence and abuse against women.

Women deserve our respect, love, acceptance and admiration for their roles as leaders, mothers, teachers, wives, sisters, coaches, aunts, grandmothers and friends.

Pinelands High School takes a stand against gender-based violence.

This week we celebrate reading with the Pinelands High Book Fair. Readers' Warehouse will supply their usual excellent selection of teen fiction and non-fiction, and you can also support Help The Rural Child who will be bringing a range of second-hand fiction and non-fiction to suit all ages.

This year we are working with Bergsig Primary School to help them set up their own library, and there will be a good selection of children's literature at low prices for you to choose from to help us in this endeavour.

Join us in the Reeler Centre from Tuesday to Friday this week to purchase a great read and help some great causes!
