Date announced for ARISE 2023

ARISE (pronounced uh-rize) Beach Retreat is happening for everyone ages 18-25 years from Monday 9 to Friday 13 January.

The venue is once again at Tahlee, a special place of natural beauty on Port Stephens near Karuah. The earliest inhabitants of this area were the Worimi tribe. Tahlee comes from the local Aboriginal word, Tarlee, meaning “sheltered from the wind and above water”.

St Johns Primary Baradine

Our Year 6 students hit the ground running on their recent excursion to Canberra.  On Day 1 they had a taste of culture at the National Gallery and then got to experience some of the facilities at the Australian Institute of Sport. Highlights on Day 2 included a tour of Parliament House and getting to meet our Federal Member of Parliament, Mark Coulton. Later, the children met the Governor-General, David Hurley, and got to look inside Government House. Evie got to sit in Mrs Hurley’s chair at the dining table!

They are now on their way home.
