Yours in Sport, Anne Goodman I am from Bontang, East Kalimantan, Indonesia. I lived in Indonesia for more than 25 years. I became a teacher in Indonesia because I love working with children and love to share knowledge with them. I retrained at CDU as a teacher when I came to Australia. What I love about teaching Indonesian is that it is a new challenge and experience for me as I only taught English in Indonesia. Teaching Indonesian is actually an awesome job because I have confidence teaching a subject I know really well. Ibu Evi, Indonesian language Teacher Please help us make sure all students arrive at school safely. The drop off zone located near the OSHC building on Wanguri Terrace is for drop off/pick up only. The Council carpark near the basketball court is available for parking if you wish to walk your child onto the school grounds. The staff carpark located on Gsell street near the school office is not for drop off/ pick ups. What is Kidsmatter?

It was developed in collaboration with beyondblue, Australian Pyschological Society and Principals Australia Institute, with funding from the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing and beyondblue.
