Awards for alumni FOUR former Kilbreda College students have been inducted into the past pupils of distinction program. The Mentone school celebrated the achievements of four of their alumni, Maggie Fitzgibbon OAM, Laura John, Dr Bridie Kean, and Katrina Leason. Ms Fitzgibbon found success as an actor and performer. Ms John is a lawyer who was a United Nations youth ambassador and Kingston youth of the year award winner. Dr Kean is a

paralympian who found success as a wheelchair basketball player and canoeist. Ms Leason has worked on inclusion programs for women in Australian rules football. Dr Kean said in her speech that “it’s quite surreal to be standing here in this hall, receiving this award, because I remember so clearly rolling around this very hall in my wheelchair as a year 8 student. That was the year I started playing wheelchair basketball, and it changed my life.”

THE funeral of St Kilda Football Club legend Danny Frawley will be broadcast on big screens for supporters to watch at the club’s Moorabbin headquarters. Frawley died in a single vehicle car crash on 9 September, aged 56. Supporters have been invited to the club’s training base to watch his private funeral service on Wednesday, 18 September. After the conclusion of the service, Frawley’s hearse will come to the ground for supporters to pay their respects. St Kilda’s Moorabbin headquarters is at 3 Linton Street, Moorabbin. The coverage of Frawley’s funeral starts at 3pm. St Kilda’s homebase has been flooded with flowers and tributes to the former captain of the club, known affectionately as “Spud”. His family has requested that donations be made to Beyond Blue in lieu of flowers and cards. Beyond Blue can be contacted on 1300 22 4636. Lifeline can be contacted on 13 11 14.
