Upper Main Arm Public School has come up trumps in the Mullumbimby CWA international competition for schools. Georgia Osborn won first prize with her PowerPoint presentation on Poland. Second prize was won by Satya Bollen.

The girls were presented with their prizes by branch international officer Diane Giddins at an ‘International Afternoon’ on May 22. The focus was on Poland, the country of study for 2018.

Guest speaker Maryanne Smith gave a comprehensive address and the CWA MusicMakers sang lively Polish folk songs. Mullumbimby branch also celebrated its 74th birthday on the day with a special cake. President Sue Constable invited CWA stalwart Elna Bostock to cut the cake, recognising Elna’s 54 years of service in the Mullumbimby branch of CWA.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
