Sad News: The bottle tree at Canowindra Public School is deteriorating rapidly since a branch was removed last year. An arborist has informed the school that the tree is dying and it needs to be removed ASAP. It seems the wet weather a few years ago started the rotting process from within and the ramp may have undermined some of its roots. The tree will be replaced with another bottle tree in the school holidays. This is very sad for the school but safety has to
be the number one priority.

September Is: Brain Aneurysm Awareness Month. It is often called the silent killer because it is very difficult to know that you have an aneurysm. Your first symptom is often your last. Possible warning signs are a sudden severe headache, nausea and vomiting, blurred or double vision, sensitivity to light and a stiff neck. Read more in the Canowindra Pharmacy window display.
