Parking fee on way SHOPPERS who stay for more than three hours at Southland Shopping Centre will pay for parking from mid-October. Shopping centres operator Westfield has flagged the installation of a new parking system featuring licence plate recognition from 16 October. The first three hours of parking will be free and boom gates will rise automatically with no need for a ticket if a vehicle departs the centre car park within the three-hour time limit. The move to charge for parking if a vehicle stays on site for more than three hours comes as a new train station is due to be opened at Southland before Christmas this year.

Women of distinction honoured WOMEN “making a difference” were welcomed back to Mentone’s Kilbreda College last month for the school’s first annual “Past Pupils of Distinction Dinner”. Carol Gaston, Professor Judith Kinnear, Dr Mayumi Purvis and The Honourable Chief Justice Marilyn Warren attended the event on 4 August held in their honour. The four former students were chosen by a selection committee for “outstanding success in their lives and careers” and contributions towards “a positive difference in the lives of others” embodying Kilbreda College’s motto of “Strength and Kindness”.
Ms Gaston worked for the World Health Organisation and worked in several global nursing roles. Her services in health, nursing and humanitarian work in Australia and overseas led to a Member of the Order of Australia in 2008. Professor Kinnear is an author of several textbooks and prize-winning education software packages and held many senior university roles including Vice Chancellor of Massey University, making her the first woman to lead a university in New Zealand. Doctor Purvis is a criminologist, lecturer and consultant who has been pivotal in developing programs to manage and rehabilitate sex offenders. She is also
chairwoman for Headspace Bairnsdale. The Honourable Chief Justice Marilyn Warren is the first woman appointed Chief Justice in an Australian Supreme Court, having been the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Victoria for 14 years. In 2005, she was awarded a Companion of the Order of Australia (AC) for her service to the judiciary and to the legal profession. “The Kilbreda community is incredibly proud of all nominees and inductees who serve as wonderful role models for young women today,” Kilbreda College co-principal Teresa Lincoln said.
