Notes From The Editor

Another fairly big week for some of us, emotional and challenging, to say the least. 


St Francis Property Owners Association and the Non-Profit Company (SRA) AGM’s were held via Zoom on Tuesday 7 December. 

They were interesting and encouraging AGMs, with great feedback on just how much the SRA has achieved over the last year, especially regarding security and roads and where we are with the beach restoration project.

All the votes were For the NPC Resolutions, and the standing SFPO Committee was unanimously voted in.

For more information, please see the website Contact details are on the site.

Lamb Raffle

Talking about the beach restoration project, there is currently a raffle for two lambs on the go. 

Two lucky winners of this raffle will receive a whole lamb pack for the freezer, just in time for the Christmas table!

These lambs have been generously donated to raise funds for the acceleration of the St Francis Property Owners Non-Profit Company’s project to save our beach and spit.

The sooner we can begin constructing the first groyne, the sooner we will be able to save our spit from breaching and begin reinstating our glorious beaches.

At a hundred bucks a shot, it’s a good punt, knowing the price of meat these days.

St Francis College 

Wednesday 8 December was the last day of school for the year at St Francis College and the last day of college for the grade sevens. 

It was an emotional day, with many tears shed at the final assembly and very proud parents watching their kids win some inspiring awards. 

St Francis College is a great school and is growing in leaps and bounds, and next year looks like a bumper year for the school with so many people moving to the area. 

We at St Francis Today would like to wish all the grade seven learners the best of luck as they head to their high schools and good wishes to all. We would also like to compliment St Francis College teachers, acting headmaster and staff for a fantastic year coming out of COVID and homeschooling. What a journey.

Former Editor Colin Watt Is Well and Recovering

Finally, we would like our readers to know that former editor of St Francis Today and good friend of many, Colin Watt, is well and currently recovering in hospital. Colin has been suffering from ill health for a while now and was admitted last week for a rather serious medical procedure. The operation was deemed a success. 

If you would like to send Colin any messages or get-well wishes, please do it in the comments section. If you’re close enough and have his Whatsapp number, that could also be an excellent route to connect to him. I am sure that some positive comments and love will do him very well and give him strength in his recovery process.
