Karmai community celebrates
THE Korumburra community came together for a special Christmas celebration at Coleman Park, Korumburra recently. More than 130 children, their families and educators converged on the park to celebrate together a wonderful year.
The occasion was also attended by a special visitor in red, arriving on the fire truck and handing out goodies and Christmas wishes to the children.
After Santa’s departure Bronwyn Beach, president of the board of Karmai Community Children’s Centre, gave a wonderful acknowledgement to more than 70 years of service by three inspiring educators.
Bronwyn first spoke of both Lyn Stein and Julie Osmond, who gave 41 years service and 21 years respectively, educating the children of Korumburra.
What an amazing impact they have had on the children and families of the town.
Lyn has even taught three generations of some families – an exceptional feat for anyone.
Lyn and Julie’s partnership has been one of synergy and Julie shared how, over the years, they have become so in tune they often finish each other’s sentences.
They are retiring to spend time with their families and explore the next adventures in their lives.
Bronwyn also thanked Ebony Knox, who has been working at Karmai for 10 years. Ebony has also been an integral part of the Karmai family and is taking on a new adventure in the city for 2016.
