Happy 80th Birthday SDN Mosman


—Speaker, I want to wish SDN Mosman a happy 80th birthday. SDN is a child-safe not-for-profit organisation, fostering and promoting wellbeing, learning and development. We know it takes a village to raise a child, and for the past 80 years, they have provided that village support system for the parents of Mosman. SDN Mosman was created during the Second World War to help ease the burden of childcare for the women working and helping with the war efforts. Today, childcare is so important to our society, with more women than ever in the workforce whilst raising children. The party was graced with a rendition of 'We Are Australian' sung by the children of SDN Mosman, which was followed by a birthday cake. Thank you to their dedicated staff, who work tirelessly to support local parents and give their children the best early childhood education and care. Special thanks to SDN CEO Kay Turner, Head of Communications Dianne Speakman, and SDN Mosman's Director, Sangeeta Konsam. These are three incredible women who have dedicated their careers to childcare. Happy Birthday SDN Mosman.
