The Botha School has really been a hustling and busy place this month, which also includes their Christmas Concert, which will be held tonight, so please come on out to the Botha Hall and support all the students.

CAO Eric Jerrard will be sadly missed as under his doctor’s recommendation, he is forced to give up his position as CAO to our little community. Eric has done a great job leading the administration and advising council, so he will be truly missed in this profession.The village members would like to wish Eric all the very best in the future.

All the students and staff at the school plus all the village council would like to wish everyone a very merry Christmas and all the very best to you and yours in 2016.
