Local identity’s sad passing WELL known fruit grower and community worker, John Corboy has sadly passed after a long battle with illness. John was aged 71. John started from humble beginnings to become one of the Goulburn Valley’s largest fruit producers with over 300ha of apple, pear and stone fruit orchards before his business met with failure. Mr Corboy was a strong advocate for a number of community charities in the region as well as securing major infrastructure projects to come to fruition. Jim Andreadis delivered a eulogy at his funeral in Brisbane recently. “I was lucky enough to meet John over 25 years ago when I first arrived in Shepparton and we hit it off immediately, we saw the world very similarly, and shared many values. We worked together to help establish the GV Community Fund, the Bridge Youth Services, Ladders to Success (an indigenous employment program) and countless other community initiatives. I also watched him battle to save the SPC fruit cannery, get funding to our region for the GV Highway widening and keeping New Zealand apples out due to Fire Blight, a disease that could have been introduced to the region. John advocated fiercely for funding to modernise the GV’s ageing irrigation, its success bringing $2 billion to our region. I’d call John a leviathan of our region. These were the achievements everyone saw, but I was privileged to see so much more. At times when business was tough, he’d tell me that “it mightn’t look like it, but I’m rich”, and then he’d proceed to explain why, I’ve got Kerry, three sons, daughters in law and however many grandchildren he had at the time. And I’m sure he meant it. John was always helping someone out- staff members who had fallen on hard times, going into bat for a farmer or business person being unfairly treated by financiers, government or bureaucracy. He was always able to come up with a cunning plan, a win-win, or lose the least outcome. John was the quintessential strategist and could always hatch a plan to make things better. And while he was saving the “World”, his business, his family and most likely his own needs were being kicked into the long grass. I never worked out if John’s appearance, unshaven, dressed in his customary flannel shirts with cut off sleeves and buttons in the wrong

Home gardeners essential to control efforts The 2020/21 Queensland fruit fly (Qfly) season has been longer and more severe than usual. You and your garden are part of the Goulburn Murray Valley (GMV) Fruit Fly Area Wide Management Program, funded by the Victorian Government. What you do now will impact fruit fly numbers in your garden next spring.

holes, was the result of how busy he was helping others, or a deliberate attempt to be underestimated. Peter Johnson, a great friend of both John and I, asked me to share his thoughts: he said, “John is one of the finest people I have known. In addition to my appreciation for everything that he brought to our community, I had the greatest admiration for his demeanour, and his calmness at moments of stress and crisis, and the fact that he treated everyone with respect no matter the manner in which they presented to him. Truly a wonderful man.” John was a staunch and true friend and a great human being, fighting the good fights and standing up for the underdog, and for what was right. The Goulburn Valley has had a decade to get used to John not being around. Those of us who were lucky enough to really know him will need considerably longer. Goodbye John, you are already missed.”

They have wings, but they sure walk a lot THE use of pigeons to transmit messages dates back at least 3,000 years when the ancient Egyptians used them to transmit messages over some distance. Staying on the same continent, in 2009, as a parody, a South African IT company based in Durban pitted an 11-monthold bird armed with a data packed 4 GB memory stick against the ADSL service from the country's biggest internet service provider. The pigeon, Winston, took an hour and eight minutes to carry the data 80km. In all, the data transfer took two hours, six minutes, and 57 seconds, the same amount of time it took to transfer four percent of the data over the ADSL.

Using pigeons to transmit messages is no longer being used however, the fancy of pigeon racing has been popular for almost 200 years. Members of the Goulburn Valley Pigeon Club are a small group of pigeon fanciers who breed and race their birds across distances ranging from 120km to 1,200km, which surprisingly, can be completed in one day. The club has rooms in Packham Street, Sheppa r ton a nd a nyone who m ig ht be interested in finding out more about breeding and racing pigeons can contact the president of the club, Tony Sofra on 0408 577 340.

Fruit fly hot spots Increased Qfly pressure has come about due to warmer and wetter weather than usual and the presence of more unharvested fruit still on-trees or fallen to the ground. Hot spots identified in the GMV between July 2020 and May 2021 are: • Nagambie • Tatura urban • Numurkah • Katamatite • Merrigum • Mooroopna • Euroa • Avenel • Congupna • Shepparton urban Ripe fruit still on the plant or ground can still be infested by Qfly right now in most areas of the GMV. Generally, from May onwards, eggs, larvae and pupae from these infested fruit will die due to prolonged cold nights. However, some fruit may still be on-trees or on the ground in warmer, more moist microclimates in and around backyards. It is important to pick, or pick up, and destroy unwanted fruit at this time of year, as adult flies may emerge from these fruit. These flies will hide in relatively warm spots in evergreen plants throughout winter and avoid traps due to the cold temperature, so won’t be detected until spring when the weather warms up and fruit get stung.

• Pick up and dispose of (place in a plastic bag in the sun for 5 days and then throw out with the weekly garbage/compost) any fallen fruit in your yard, on the nature strip, on nearby creek banks or parks. • Pick fruit still on the plant and use or dispose of as above. • Prune your trees to keep them at a manageable height for next season’s fruit picking or for netting. • Check ripe and ripening fruit for signs of fruit fly infestation – soft patches, brown to black sting marks, maggots. • Check traps are within the use-by date and replace or recharge with new baits if required. • Place traps around the house, especially in evergreen foliage near the house e.g. the lemon tree. • Netting around most trees can be removed now but should remain if you have ripe or ripening fruit still in your yard. • If you have fruit trees that you don’t use, consider removing them completely through the free Fruit Tree Removal Program and replacing with a non-fruiting plant.

Unify, a celebration of community Shepparton Festival launches winter fest program IT’S back. While COVID-19 erupted at the same time as the Shepparton Festival launch in 2020 causing the event to be cancelled as soon as it had started, this year we are past the worst of it and events such as this can once more be held. Accordingly, it’s time to reveal the lineup for U N IFY 2021, the 25th annual Shepparton Festival. Starting on the long weekend in June, the festival runs over 17 days, from June 11 to 27. For the first time in its history, the festival will be held during winter. Festival creative director, Jamie Lea, says, “This adds a fresh perspective. The cooler weather a nd longer even i ng s h ave prov ide d opportunities for different and exciting events that take advantage of the dark, as well as providing a cosy backdrop for our food and drink events. The trail of murals

and projections, and our spectacular event at the multi-storey carpark in the Shepparton CBD are particularly exciting additions this year.” Highlights for this year include Unify the Senses, a sound, light and movement spectacular, Converge on the Goulburn, one of Greater Shepparton’s largest free community events and Shine on Greater Shepp, a series of projections and murals, fe at u r i ng lo c a l a nd i nt er n at ion a l ly renowned artists.

a compelling blend of performance, story and conversation, this special evening will evoke further reflection about the position First Peoples, Song, and Story have in the present. W hen considering the theme for the 2021 Festival it was impossible to avoid reflecting on the year that was. Festival Creative Director, Jamie Lea says “Fear, isolation and uncertainty were all realities of 2020, but we also saw great strength, innovation, and unity rise up within both our local and global communities. It was from this contemplation that this year's theme arose.” Head to the Festival website for registrations and ticket sales and follow the Facebook page for further announcements.

BARMAH BRUMBIES GET A REPRIEVE... (Inset) Noel Wiltshire and volunteers from the Barmah Brumby Preservation Group work on fencing. Photos: David Lee

Victorian Gem Clubs Association Inc. Presents

Brumbies get a reprieve THE 66,000ha Barmah state forest is home to a couple of hundred brumbies, wild horses that have roamed free since they were retired and set free, predominantly on the conclusion of the First World War and on the dawn of mechanisation. In recent times, Parks Victoria have taken issue over environmental concerns in concert with further concerns of the Traditional Owners who regard them as feral animals. For the past eight years, the Barmah Brumby Preservation Group have been campaigning to preserve the herd ahead

of plans to exterminate them by Parks Victoria. It only this last week the group have obtained permission to rehouse up to 90 horses on a 45ha property they are leasing that adjoins the park. Beginning as a Facebook page now with over 11,000 members, they have raised over $90,000 to bring the leased property to a suitable standard to house the horses. The group also have access to another 70ha property on which they intend to sow to pasture that can be harvested to feed the animals.

Weekend volunteers join with the group to help construct the fencing and such that is required to be maintained before the horses can be repatriated. Notwithstanding, Parks Victoria still have plans to eradicate up to 100 horses each year. Julie Pridmore speaking on behalf of the group said, "There are only a couple of hundred horses in the park so if they do this, it won't be too long before they are all gone." For anyone interested in getting involved they can contact the group through Facebook.

Local author launches second novel

LOCAL AUTHOR... Di Walker and John Cortese with her latest novel, Every Thing We Keep. Photo: Supplied Dick Clayton

By Stephanie Holliday DI Walker, English teacher at Notre Dame College, has released her latest novel, Every Thing We Keep. The book follows the journey of 13-yearold Agatha as she struggles to work out how she can love her parents but not live with them. After a family tragedy, Agatha’s parents can no longer care for her. She has spent several years in foster care and wants to remain with her foster carer, Katherine. Di’s 10 years’ experience as a trauma and adolescent counsellor has garnered her insight into the complexities of the many issues faced by young people. “Reading fiction has always been a part of my life and I think it opens up the world, can help us see things from another perspective. Sometimes a character can say something at just the right time the reader needs to hear it,” said Di. In a world dominated by online platforms

and social media for entertainment, a love of reading and writing in young people can be reignited through written works which adolescents relate to and identify with, novels exactly like Di Walker’s. “I think there are a lot of young people who love reading and writing but maybe just don’t talk about it. That has certainly been my experience with my books – I have had a lot of conversations with people who are working on a story, or reading a series and want to talk about the writing process,” said Di. Di’s latest novel follows the success of her first novel, Unpacking Harper Holt. As to whether we can see more novels from Di in the future, “I have a few manuscripts on my computer that are a third of the way through,” she hints. Every Thing We Keep was launched at Collins Booksellers Shepparton April 17 and is available online and instore.

Fancy an extra $3K towards your new ZEV? A walk down memory lane

MOVE will open the doors to a brand new Museum experience in a few months and it is worth noting one particular collection. The late Dick Clayton was well known for many pursuits and much of his life was spent doing things for others in the community. Dick loved history and for many years was the historian at the Shepparton RSL. He started the Darwin Defenders branch on the Goulburn Valley and was also instrumental in establishing a memorial at the entrance to the Shepparton Showgrounds. The Rookies Garden commemorates the 2,500 Army and 37,000 Air Force personnel who completed their basic (rookie)

training there during World War II. What few people know is that Dick was also part of the original push to establish a museum for Shepparton. Dick donated his personal collection of radios, gramophones and telephones to MOVE and the new museum will finally see them properly displayed. Just reading the dials of the old radios, with the original call signs of stations that broadcast across the region, is a walk down memory lane and another way for people to explore our social history.

The intentionally built package, has been designed to assist us as a nation, to meet the ambitious target; of net zero emissions by 2050, which will reportedly be financed in full with the funds acquired by the zero and low-emissions road user charge. A portion of the allocated budget has been allocated to a total of 20,000 oneoff, $3,000 subsidy payments, available to all Australians to assist in their purchase of a new ZEV. The first portion of which saw the initial release of 4,000 subsidy allocations become available from Sunday, May 2, with further stages and allocations said to be announced as the program progresses. A further $5M of the budget has been allocated to an innovation fund, which aims to drive uptake of ZEVs in the commercial sector. The Federal Government intends to lead

the charge with an investment of $10M allocated to purchase 400 ZEVs which will be integrated over the coming two years, into the Government’s own fleet. Treasurer, Tim Pallas, provided further explanation of the intention of the initiative, “These investments will encourage more drivers to consider purchasing a zero emissions vehicle, and ensure Victoria leads the nation in zero emissions vehicle uptake.” To meet the expected need created by the increase of ZEVs on our roads, and provide drivers with more confidence to invest, the Government will invest $19M to roll out more charging infrastructure on major highways, at key tourist attractions, and locations across Melbourne and regional Victoria ensuring ZEV owners that they will have a charging station within manageable distance when they need it. Minister for Public Transport, Ben Carroll, added, “Electric and zeroemissions vehicles are the future of transport – and we’re making sure more Victorians can buy a clean, sustainable car as we prepare for this transport revolution.”

Shepparton multi-level carpark on the market OWNERS of the multi-level carpark in the Greater Shepparton CBD have put the freehold and eight other carparks across the country on the market while maintaining a long lease with each. Care Park is 75 per cent controlled by Hong Kong-listed conglomerate Far East Consortium. Car parking is a $1.2B industry in Australia, according to research house IBIS World.

SOLAR INSTALLATIONS ARE BOOMING... New installations happening every day. Photo: Supplied

AUSTRALIANS across the country are capitalising on our nation’s ability to convert sunshine into energy, with a recent report stating rooftop solar installations has seen a growth rate of 39 percent year on year for the 2019-2020 period. Approximately 2.6 million Australian homes now have panels on their roofs, 374,0 0 0 of which are installed on Victorian roofs. That’s an average of six panels per minute, states the Clean Energy Council, Australia’s leading renewable energy and energy storage businesses estimating an

average of 10 to 20 panels per-minute if large-scale solar projects are factored in. There seems to be quite a lot of confusion within the community around choosing reputable service providers and the best way in which to do so, the most valuable advice is to get informed before you make a commitment.

for their community. This accords with our previous research that has advocated for recognition at the policy level of the vital importance of the printed paper. 94 percent of respondents say they should be invited to have a say about government policies and decisions affecting the future of local newspapers. 61 percent of respondents say policies that affect the future of local newspapers would influence the way they vote at the next federal election. Audiences indicated they are five times as likely to go directly to a local news website for their local news than Google or Facebook, and almost 10 times as likely to go to the local newspaper website over a local council website for their local news and information. Surprisingly, just 5% of younger audiences say they mostly use social media to find out about local news. Audiences believe local newspapers should be collaboratively funded by a range of relevant stakeholders, including media companies, advertisers, subscribers, government and philanthropy to ensure their future. Audiences overwhelmingly (71 percent) indicate any additional funding for local news should be directed to employing more local journalists to report news. Almost 30 percent of Australia’s population, close to 8 million people, live outside major cities in rural and regional areas, and are less well serviced by the media than their urban counterparts.

WHILE it might appear to be self-serving, the future of local newspapers will be a key issue for regional, rural and suburban voters at the next federal election, a newly released national study has found. The biggest national survey of local news audiences in Australia, conducted as part of the Media Innovation and Civic Future of Australia’s Country Press project, reveals the passion people have for their local newspaper and has found they want a much bigger say about its future. The Australian Research Council-funded project involves researchers from Deakin and RMIT universities with support from Country Press Australia, the peak media body for independent news organisations. The survey findings come as country newspapers have struggled to survive during the pandemic. The survey asked almost 4200 Australian country press newspaper readers in rural, regional and outer suburban areas about the role of local newspapers within their communities and their ideas for innovation within the sector. There is continued strong demand (and passion) for the printed product in rural and regional Australia. In fact, the majority of audiences prefer a printed newspaper, with younger generations also part of this trend. Country Press readers overall are 2.6 times as likely to read their local paper in print than in digital format. Audiences overwhelmingly view a printed copy of their newspaper as an essential service

Every drop counts in 2021 WHILE summer is officially over, Goulburn Valley Water is urging people to continue their water saving habits throughout the entire year. Summer water usage peaked in January 2021, with GVW producing more than 3,710 megalitres, compared to 3,147 megalitres in January 2020. Managing director, Steve Capewell, said with consumption trends on the rise, it was everyone’s responsibility to use water wisely year-round. “There is only a finite amount of water available, and while we’re working to integrate smart, sustainable water reuse opportunities, it’s

our responsibility to be smart about water use.” People are being urged to focus on saving water indoors in the cooler months to keep making every drop count year-round. Key tips include shaving your shower time down to four minutes to save up to 40 litres per shower per day and save energy too, and turning the tap off while you’re brushing your teeth. Running dishwashers and washing machines only when full and on ‘eco’ cycles will help reduce water wastage. In the kitchen, catch running water while rinsing vegetables to use to water pot plants; and fix dripping taps, which can waste up to 12,000 litres a year.

Permanent Water Saving Rules are in place year-round to encourage water efficiency. They include watering gardens with sprinkler systems only between 6pm and 10am to reduce evaporation, using a broom or a blower to clean hard surfaces and washing vehicles with a

bucket or hose fitted with a trigger nozzle. You can find tips to save water indoors and outdoors, as well as a water calculator to find out just how much water your household uses - on GVW’s website: gvwater.vic.gov.au/ everydropcounts

Herbicide used for removal of native vegetation LANDHOLDERS who remove or spray native roadside vegetation are liable to be fined by Greater Shepparton City Council. Landholders are being asked to apply for a permit before removing, destroying or lopping native vegetation, which includes spraying native vegetation with chemicals. It is crucial the Greater Shepparton community follow guidelines and legislation in place to protect native vegetation, including trees, shrubs, herbs and grasses. Native vegetation provides habitat for our plants and animals and delivers a range of services to the environment and people’s wellbeing. Mapping shows there is less than 2.5 per cent of pre-European settlement native vegetation remaining in the region.

Page 12 – The Adviser Australia No.1:1559 Wednesday, May 12, 2021

It is illegal to remove or destroy native vegetation on any Victorian roadside, including the use of chemicals for suppression of weeds or for fire risk fuel reduction. As part of the investigation, Agriculture Victoria collected plant samples which were analysed to confirm the chemicals used. The fine recipient has agreed to revegetate the impacted roadside with low growing shrubs during the year’s revegetation season. The incorrect or improper use of chemical sprays on native vegetation can cause significant damage and loss. To report roadside weeds or for further information on obtaining a permit, contact Greater Shepparton City Council or visit the Council website.

Cultural Heritage Award winners announced WHILE the heritage within the Greater Shepparton region dates back thousands of years, European settlement has created some interesting examples of architecture that warrant conservation and recognition. Greater Shepparton City Council, in association with the Greater Shepparton Heritage Advisory Committee (HAC), recognised ten examples of cultural heritage conservation, research, education, promotion and interpretation at the 2021 Cultural Heritage Awards. Mayor, Cr Kim O’Keeffe, presented the awards to this year’s win ners, acknowledging the quality and quantity of nominations. “There is no shortage of outstanding c ont r ibut ion s to c u lt u ra l her it a ge conservation, interpretation and promotion in our municipality,” she said. “I congratulate all the winners and nominees on their outstanding commitment to cultural heritage conservation and look forward to the next Cultural Heritage

Awards to be held again in 2023. Greater Shepparton HAC chairperson, Marjorie Earl, said the awards were just one way the committee was celebrating the history and heritage of Greater Shepparton. “The committee acts as an advocate for all cultural heritage matters within the municipality and has an extensive program of community events, like the Cultural Heritage Awards, the Bruce Wilson Memorial Heritage Lecture and the Heritage Open Days, aimed at promoting places of significant heritage across Greater Shepparton,” she said. “Twenty-two nominations were received from across Greater Shepparton, including Tatura, Mooroopna, Shepparton, Dookie, Merrigum and Murchison, and it’s fantastic to see representation from each of these areas.

International Nurses & Midwives Week 2021 A celebration of care to the community

Year of the nurse and midwife

THE irony of 2020 wasn’t lost on Goulburn Valley Health chief nurse and midwifery officer Kellie Thompson. While it was the year of the nurse and midwife, it was also one of the toughest years health services faced as the COVID-19 pandemic brought everyday life to a halt. This year, ahead of International Nurses Day on May 12, Ms Thompson reflected on the challenge that was 2020 and said it showed the vital role nurses play. “Last year showed me new reasons why I think nursing is such a rewarding career,” she said. “Globally, nursing and midwifery has risen to the challenges the pandemic presented to us. “All nurses and midwives – in fact, all medical professionals – were called on and went above and beyond to provide healthcare.” “And to see the amazing work our nurses and midwives do every day at GV Health was a privilege.” AMAZING WORK BY OUR NURSES...

International Nurses & Midwives Week 2021 A celebration of care to the community

A very rewarding career THE Australian population is ageing, with older Australians a growing proportion of the total population. In the last census, it was reported that 15 percent of Australians (3.8M) were aged 65 and over, and this is projected to grow steadily over the coming decades. Aged Care, a sector so important to many people in our community, isn’t always the first career thought for nursing and care staff. But those who have a special spot in their heart for the elderly are among the most valued. Those are the sentiments that Shepparton Villages is putting firmly behind its recruitment and retention strategy, backed by the support and pathway options for both skilled and unskilled staff. “We are so very lucky to have nursing and

QR Code check in must now use government system THE State Government has today announced that all venues and businesses required to undertake electronic record keeping for COVID-19 contact tracing purposes must use the State Government’s QR Code system as from 28 May. There has also been a further easing of restrictions which means that, from 28 May, venues can have up to 200 people per space without any density limits, but larger spaces still need to observe density caps. Victorian Chamber of Commerce and Industry chief executive, Paul Guerra said, “The increase in density limits for hospitality and events

Page 22 – The Adviser Australia No.1:1559 Wednesday, May 12, 2021

is a step in the right direction but given today’s developments, we should be taking all the restrictions off and opening up COVIDSafe to full capacity, or 100 percent. If we are asking businesses to accept the inconvenience and disruption of swapping their record keeping systems, we need to let them operate at viable levels. “Business needs certainty and this constant chopping and changing is making it difficult to keep up. Mandated State QR code systems work well in other states and we are confident it will work well here too, as well as making it quicker and easier for customers and clients but this process has been confusing and disorganised.”

PRETTY LITTLE SCHOOL GETS AN UPGRADE... Member for Northern Victoria, Mark Gepp sees to new playground. Photo: Supplied

Upgrade for Undera Primary School BETTER facilities are on their way for students at Undera Primary School with works commencing on an important school upgrade. Member for Northern Victoria, Mark Gepp, recently announced the State Government has provided $168,665 to go towards upgrades to its playground, with new inclusive play equipment, 'soft-fall' surfacing and shade sails. Mr Gepp said, “We’re making sure that our schools have the best facilities, our classrooms have the best teachers and that every child is given every chance to succeed. “Undera families are a step closer to

getting the great local school facilities their kids need to thrive.” In the past five years, the Victorian Government has invested more than $9 billion in more than 1,600 school upgrades – creating more than 10,000 construction jobs – and is now ahead of schedule its commitment to open 100 new schools by 2026, with 48 new schools opening between 2019 and 2022. While much of this funding went on new schools and significant upgrades to help meet increasing demand, the Minor Capital Works fund is about delivering the small projects that make a big difference while also supporting local jobs.

New teaching and leadership excellence academy in Shepparton. It’s an exciting time for education in Shepparton. As we celebrate education and careers this week, I wish to congratulate those who have dedicated their lives to educating our next generation. The region’s teachers are being recognised as a vital cog in improving our education system with the State Government’s announcement of a new teaching and leadership excellence academy in Shepparton. The Victorian Academy of Teaching and Leadership will help the professional development of teachers in the region,

which in turn leads to higher educational outcomes for our district’s students. The academy’s one-year intensive program will cover core curriculum areas including English, Mathematics, Science and the Arts. The academy will also host other programs to support emerging leaders and those who wish to step into principal roles. Once teachers go through training at the academy, they will become recognised as state-wide leaders in teaching excellence. This is great news for our teachers, students and our entire community.

32, year 12 VCE students from Assumption College in Kilmore visited Dookie College and Goulburn Valley Ag on the Goulburn Valley Highway to take in some of the characteristics of some big machinery. Assumption College runs an agricultural stream that includes new and innovative technology in agriculture. D o okie C ampus of M elb ourne University has an operating robotic dairy that the students took in. Mark Lewis and Christian Barnett at

Goulburn Valley Ag showed some of the latest in broadacre ag machinery including the monstrous 620 Versatile, a track machine that has a 15l engine. Teachers Frank Pereira and Nicole Sanderson from Assumption College led the excursion. “Some of the students are from the

land and more than likely will continue on and return to the land once they have finished school and university should they go there, the course we run is to set them up for a career in agriculture,” said Frank. Goulburn Valley Ag put on lunch for the students as they took a look at some of the machines on show.

Tutors on track

TUTORS play an invaluable part in keeping students up to date on learning difficult concepts. More than 5,600 tutors are working across Victoria, including in Northern Victorian schools, to ensure no student is left behind in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. This is 1,500 more than the initial target set for the 2021 school year. Every school received at least $ 15 ,000 to ensure they could participate effectively, with the amount provided to each calculated on the number of enrolments and the number of social disadvantage-funded students in the school. Funding for each school was calculated on an evidence-based model of around 20 percent of students receiving two or three 45-minute

sessions each week, in small groups, for 26 weeks. Schools have employed tutors based on the needs of their students. Some work part-time and offer a range of experience and support levels, and some have deployed existing teaching staff to tutoring roles. While teachers did a remarkable job last year, having the extra support of on-site tutors in 2021 will ensure these teaching teams can provide dedicated and individualised support for students who need help. Evidence shows students who struggled most with online learning during the pandemic included those with low levels of English, those already at risk of disengaging from school, or those with home environments not conducive to remote learning.

Choose Shepparton for study

CLOSE TO HOME... Shepparton’s Tanesha Christopher is studying Business (Accounting) at La Trobe University’s Shepparton campus. Photo: Supplied

MOVING to Melbourne or another city is a rite of passage for many people who grow up in regional areas. Leaving home to study can be exciting but finding your feet without the support of your friends and family can prove quite difficult. Choosing to study locally has many wonderful benefits, and La Trobe University Business (Accounting) student, Tanesha Christopher, has found the positives to studying in her home town immense. “I decided to select the Shepparton La Trobe Campus to complete my tertiary education because it was a great transition for me to continue studying locally.” said Tanesha. Tanesha has lived in the Goulburn Valley her whole life, she was born in Shepparton and grew up on two acres of land out towards Undera with her parents and younger sister. She graduated from Notre Dame in 2017 and began her Business (Accounting) degree in 2018 at La Trobe University Shepparton Campus and currently plays for Undera Football Netball Club, granting her the ability to keep close to her family and social circles. For current high school students that are wondering whether they should study locally, there are many benefits to studying

locally according to Tanesha. “Studying locally means that you already know the surroundings around town, and you are also able to stay connected with family and friends,” she said. “Being able to complete my degree locally meant that I had all of my support from family, friends, and colleagues with me the whole way through.” Being part of a regional campus also has the benefit of smaller class sizes and

access to the numerous links La Trobe University Shepparton has with industry organisations for future job prospects. “There are many opportunities in Shepparton especially for business and accounting students to get in to,” Tanesha said. “In my first year of my degree I was lucky enough in getting a part time job in my area of study which has provided me with the knowledge and skills that are needed in the industry whilst still studying.”

Calling young community leaders I encourage Goulburn Valley youths to apply for the inaugural Bourchier Internship, a new parliamentary program hosted by myself and State Nationals MP for Euroa, Steph Ryan.

FEDERAL MEMBER FOR NICHOLLS

The internship offers one young person – aged between 18 and 25 years – the chance to spend a sitting week in Federal Parliament in Canberra with me and the Victorian Parliament in Melbourne with Ms Ryan to learn more about the parliamentary process. We believe the opportunity to represent your community in Parliament – whether it’s state or federal – is an enormous privilege and we want to skill young people in understanding how they can be a positive force for change in their own community. Experiences such as this are rare and invaluable, particularly for younger people who are looking to become leaders and advocates in their local community. The internship has been named after former Country Party leader Sir Murray Bourchier. Call my office on 03 5821 5371 to find out more.

AND THE BIG MEN FLY... Bears and Swans players in full flights. Photo: Supplied.

Football Tips R7 ROCHESTER V UNITED This should be a fantastic game of football between two teams which are both wanting to figure in the September action. Some would say that the Tigers are a little unlucky to not have a better win/ loss ratio given some admirable losses against the 2019 grand finalists. The Demons have been very strong down back this season. In fact, I would go as far as saying that has probably been their strength. Tip: Rochester.

SHEPPARTON V TATURA Shepparton will go into this game full of confidence after putting up a gallant effort against the undefeated Seymour last weekend. The Bulldogs have been competitive in every game they have played this season. Tip: Shepparton.

BENALLA V SEYMOUR

MOOROOPNA V EUROA

Benalla will be looking to rebound after a disappointing second half against the reigning premier last weekend while Ben Davey’s men will be out to avoid complacency which almost cost them at Deakin Reserve last weekend. There is no doubt the Lions would have learnt plenty from last weekend. Tip: Seymour.

Mooroopna is still a work in progress as it looks to find some consistency to make a genuine assault on the top six. The Cats have shown glimpses of what they are capable of, but on other occasions they have been a little flat. I think the Pies will win this game to consolidate their ladder position. Tip: Euroa.

KYABRAM V MANSFIELD

Echuca is really building into this season. For mine, the Murray Bombers remain the team to beat despite their opening day loss to Seymour. Tip: Echuca.

Kyabram returned to the winners’ circle in emphatic fashion last weekend. After a sluggish first half, the Bombers showed Benalla who was boss in the second half where it ran away with a strong win. I think the reigning premier will be too strong for the visiting Eagles. Tip: Kyabram.

SWANS V ECHUCA

Netball Tips R7 BENALLA V SEYMOUR

SWANS V ECHUCA

ROCHESTER V UNITED

Benalla is chasing a fourth straight win on the bounce when it welcomes neighbour Seymour today. The Lions were able to recover from a slow start last weekend to continue on their merry way. The Saints may find this challenge too difficult. Tip: Seymour

The Shepparton Swans face a massive challenge when it welcomes Echuca to Princess Park. I think the Murray Bombers are building with every win and I expect them to head home victorious. Tip: Echuca.

Rochester will have a huge challenge on its hands when it welcomes the hottest team in the competition today. The Demons are a well-balanced team with everyone playing their role. Tip: United.

MOOROOPNA V EUROA

SHEPPARTON V TATURA

Mooroopna is looking to extend its winning ways when it plays host to Euroa. Tip: Mooroopna.

Both are winless, but despite that, they have shown some glimpses of what they are capable of. If the Bomber can continue their good form and keep the Eagles at bay then they can chalk up win number one for 2021. Tip: Kyabram.

Shepparton will be looking to bounce back when it welcomes Tatura to Deakin Reserve today. The Bears led 11-9 at quarter-time last weekend against the Lions only to go down in the final wash-up. Tip: Shepparton.
