Retiring principal leaves heartfelt leaving swing

ANEW Liberty Swing for the enjoyment of special education students at Passfield Park School in Minto has been unveiled by retiring principal Wendy Low and Macquarie Fields MP Anoulack Chanthivong. The new swing is an innovative piece of playground equipment at the school that enables local students, including those in wheelchairs, to experience the joy of swinging. Ms Low said she had “always wanted to make a difference” and on announcement of her retirement, the Liberty Swing was the “gift” to her students and their families. After a distinguished career as special education teacher, culminating in a tenure as Passfield Park School principal since 2017, Ms Low retires at the end of this term. “We’ve got to fight all the time to get equity for all students,” she said.

‘BEAUTIFUL PART OF THE WORLD’ Survey reveals Wollondilly love affair

THE rating on lifestyle quality in the Wollondilly Shire has just topped 95 percent, according to the latest community satisfaction survey.

The survey revealed how locals felt about “the rural lifestyle, peacefulness and sense of community have remained the most valued aspects of living in the Wollondilly Shire.”

Mayor Matt Gould said he was elated by the survey results which is one of the ways they are “understanding priorities and identifying ways we can continue to make improvements to our services.”

“It’s not surprising that 95 percent of the survey participants rate the quality of life in the Wollondilly Shire as good or excellent,” Mayor Gould said.

“This is a beautiful part of the world to live in and one we all love!”

Mayor Gould congratulated his fellow councillors and council staff for the survey results that rated them on the delivery of local infrastructure, facilities, and roads improvement.

The respondents rated the importance of improved roads, schools, hospitals and supermarkets that support their lifestyle in the Wollondilly Shire, one of the growth centres in the Greater Sydney region.

The respondents also rated their councillors 78 percent and council staff with 81 percent overall satisfaction with their performances, or nine percent up from 2023 survey.

The council holds the annual independent survey to “directly gather feedback and data from residents to help guide future direction.”

The Council has commissioned the independent organisation, Micromex Research in February 2024 to conduct a random telephone survey of residents

living in the local government area.

Roads, facilities including schools, hospitals and supermarkets, and infrastructure to support population growth were rated by respondents among other top three priorities for the Shire.

But it’s the rural lifestyle, peacefulness and sense of community that have remained the most valued aspects of living in the Wollondilly Shire, the survey showed.

“I look forward to working together with my fellow Councillors and our staff to maintain and continue this overall positive trend,” he said.

“These survey results are a great reflection on the progress made in the past year and the focus that has been placed on improving services and facilities for the community, right across the Shire.

“This is a good improvement and shows we are on the right track, but importantly there is more work to do.”

In response to this year’s survey feedback, Mayor Gould said they “continue to improve the condition of Wollondilly’s roads, investing significantly to repair our road network that suffered from recent natural disasters and underinvestment.”

To address a continuing population growth, Mayor Gould said they will focus on the development in state-led growth centres, while securing vital infrastructure for the town centres, small villages and rural properties.

Mr Gould urged residents to continue to share their feedback through the Your Say page on the Council website.

TWO local schools have together received $20,000 from the Albanese government’s Saluting Their Service Commemorative Grants Program, to improve veterans’ memorials.

More than $1.68M funding has been set aside nationwide for 91 community projects that pay tribute to the courageous Australians who served during World Wars 1 and 2 and those who continue to serve in conflicts around the world.

Locally, funding was granted to St Gregory’s College Campbelltown to restore and expand their current war memorial and to Ingleburn High School to refurbish their existing ANZAC memorial cenotaph to create a dignified space of honour.

The ongoing program provides community grants up to $10,000 and major grants up to $150,000 with the current round open until 20 June 2024.

Veterans affairs minister Matt Keogh said: “Local monuments and commemorative activities are a vital part of making sure the stories of service and sacrifice of local legends live on for generations.

“This funding will ensure our military history is accessible, helping Australians to engage with veterans’ stories.”

New projects are sought for the 25th anniversary of Interfet in September, and the 80th anniversary of the end of World War 2 next year.

"These innovative projects funded by the Albanese Government will ensure the stories of veterans from our community are remembered for decades to come,” Macarthur MP Dr Mike Freelander said.

“I’m proud that the government is committed to recognising and commemorating all veterans and their families, both past and present.

“I know our community has a strong desire to recognise local veterans, so I encourage everyone with an idea for a commemorative project to apply to the current grant round.”

Retiring principal leaves her mark

ANEW Liberty Swing for the enjoyment of special education students at Passfield Park School in Minto has been unveiled by retiring principal Wendy Low and Macquarie Fields MP Anoulack Chanthivong.

The new swing becomes an innovative piece of playground equipment at the school, enabling students, including those in wheelchairs, to experience the joy of swinging.

Ms Low said she had “always wanted to make a difference” and on announcement of her retirement, the Liberty Swing was the “gift” to her students and their families.

After a distinguished career as special education teacher, culminating in a tenure as Passfield Park School principal since 2017, Ms Low retires at the end of this term.

“We’ve got to fight all the time to get equity for all students,” she said.

“Our students in a wheelchair cannot get on to a normal swing and that movement is very helpful for them.

“We identified that [the Liberty Swing] is something that could be used by every student no matter whether they’re mobile or not.

“Everybody can be part of it. Everybody has enjoyment from it.”

Mr Chanthivong also welcomed the addition of the “simple but such an important piece of equipment” in the Liberty Swing that has gained Ms Low’s approval.

“Your passion and dedication to your kids and staff and is really something special, I’m so proud of what you’ve created here,” Mr Chanthivong said.

“They’re special kids and we want to make sure that myself as the local member and all of us pay them special attention that the kids deserve.”

Mr Chanthivong has paid tribute to Ms Low’s

exemplary leadership in special education in a speech at the NSW Parliament last May.

“Wendy has single-handedly devoted her career to enhancing the lies of kids with disabilities and their families,” he said.

Celebrating 11 bllion returns

RETURN and Earn in NSW has celebrated recycling 11 billion bottles, cans, and cartons since its 2017 inception. The scheme has returned $1.1B in refunds to the public and raised $54M for charities and community groups. It has helped alleviate cost-of-living pressures and supported organizations like Little Wings. The initiative, partnered with TOMRA Cleanaway and funded by the beverage industry, contributes significantly to Australia’s circular economy.

Surgical wait list reduced

The NSW Government is reducing the surgical wait list by embracing short stay and same-day surgeries. The Same Day and Short Stay Joint Replacement Program allows patients to go home the day after surgery when appropriate. Based on research, this program supports home recovery with prehabilitation and post-operative care. Early results show promising increases in same-day surgeries, improving patient experience and hospital capacity.

The pilot aims for faster recovery and reduced hospital pressure.

Urgent servicescaredeliver

SINCE mid-2023, NSW’s Urgent Care Services have had over 55,000 visits, reducing emergency department pressure. By April 2024, there were 10,628 visits to GP-led services and 44,555 to Local Health District-led services. The NSW Government has opened 16 Urgent Care Services, with

plans for 25 by mid-2025. Gregory Hills Urgent Care Service, open since February 2024, has had 580 visits, offering non-emergency treatment daily.

Pay rise for ATFE teachers

TAFE NSW teachers will receive their largest pay increase in two decades with a 4% salary and allowance rise, following the NSW Labor Government’s removal of the public sector wages cap. Starting salaries will increase from $88,842 to $92,396, and top-scale salaries from $105,362 to $109,576. This one-year agreement begins February 2024 and aims to address the skilled worker shortage and enhance TAFE NSW’s attractiveness for industry professionals.

Call for review of hardship

THE Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA) supports ASIC’s call for lenders to better assist customers facing financial hardship. ASIC’s report highlights lenders’ shortcomings in providing adequate hardship support. AFCA’s data shows a 25% increase in financial difficulty complaints in 2023, with a third related to home loans. AFCA urges lenders to offer individualized assistance and avoid “cookie cutter” responses. AFCA continues to monitor these trends to address systemic issues.

Seatbelt rules camera enforced

STARTING July 1, 2024, Transport for NSW will enforce seatbelt rules using mobile phone detection cameras. A new advertising campaign

launching Sunday will remind drivers of this change. Secretary Josh Murray emphasizes the serious consequences of not wearing seatbelts, citing 150 fatalities between 2019 and 2023 due to improper restraint. The campaign will highlight correct seatbelt use and the importance of driver responsibility for passenger safety.

Pizza Hut fined $2,502,500

PIZZA Pan Group Pty Ltd, trading as Pizza Hut Australia, was fined $2,502,500 for breaching Australian spam laws by sending over 10 million unauthorized marketing messages from January to May 2023. An ACMA investigation found that Pizza Hut sent 5.9 million messages to customers who had not consented or had withdrawn consent and 4.4 million without an unsubscribe option. Pizza Hut has committed to a three-year compliance review and regular reporting to ACMA.

Coles top ranked for inclusion

Camden businesses take the stage

HOLLYWOOD has the Oscars and the music industry has the Grammys – but for Camden businesses, the annual night of nights is July 23 at Wests Campbelltown.

That’s the date of the 2024 Camden Local Business Awards.

Precedent Productions Managing Director and Awards founder Steve Loe said: “There’s no doubt that local business owners and their staff work hard to provide the best possible service to their customers.

“That’s why the annual Camden Local Business Awards presentation night is always such a popular event.

“It’s a glittering event that gives finalists a chance to dress up and take a break so they can enjoy an evening of entertainment, good food, relaxed chat and celebration with their colleagues and people from other businesses from around the district.”

Mr Loe said being a finalist in the Camden Local Business Awards presentation night was an enormous achievement.

“It’s also a chance for businesspeople and their teams to reflect on their

successes with a fun night out,” he said.

"Making it to the finalist presentation is a great reflection on their efforts and everyone is always extremely proud to be there.

“All finalists in each category are announced, with their picture shown on the big screen.

“It’s heart-warming to hear the deafening cheers from the crowd as everyone celebrates the achievement of all the businesses in the room.”

Today is the day when nominees for the 2024 Camden Local Business Awards discover if they have made it as a finalist.

Mr Loe said the high quality of all nominees had made the job of judges incredibly difficult.

“The Macarthur Advocate, which has supported the awards as media partner for many years, will announce the finalists in each category with a special feature in today’s paper,” he said.

“This is a chance for customers and clients to see if the businesses they nominated have become finalists.”

The Camden Local Business Awards are only possible with the support of Camden Council, NOVA Employment and White Key Marketing.

“It’s with great pleasure that I congratulate all the finalists on their achievements, on behalf of the camden Local Business Awards,” Mr Loe said.

“I would also like to thank the Camden community for the huge support that they continue to show for their local businesses through the Awards every year.

“Without them, these outstanding businesses would receive the recognition which they deserve.”

Transforming the student experience

CUTTING-edge technologies for 21st century teaching has caused a school in Western Sydney dramatically grow its enrolments.

Australian Christian College in Marsden Park recently unveiled its high-tech learning hub wing with the latest features delighting its 650 secondary students who will be taught how to utilise them.

The hub has two film production studios where they can shoot and edit footages, two podcast studios, a Virtual Reality lab, separate Robotics and Mac labs – where students are shown every tech tool they need to produce media genres used in today’s world of digital technology.

Opening the hub is meant to upskill the students even before they start an arts or STEM degree at university, making the school attractive to families with enrolments “incredibly growing” three times since 2019, ACC principal Brendan Corr said.

“These new facilities put us in an ideal position as educators to prepare our students for the rapidly changing workforce they will enter,” Mr Corr said.

“They’ll have access to a teaching environment that will engage, challenge and delight them.”

The hub comes at a time when the world of education is embracing 21st century innovative teaching methodologies and integrating technology as tools into the classroom, Mr Corr said.

The school’s new hub became a reality through the Building Grants Assistance Scheme program funded by the NSW government.

At the opening, Mr Corr invited the NSW minister for education and early learning, Prue Car, Blacktown City Council members, school officials,

teaching staff and the excited students with their families to celebrate the opening.

Mr Corr toured them to the three-storey high-tech learning hub fitted out with a range of learning facilities to accommodate over 650 students enrolled in the secondary school section of ACC which caters for students from Kindergarten and Primary school levels.

The new hub building will accommodate secondary students and even younger students whose interests are include the innovative technologies at the school.

“While the Secondary building will

accommodate over 650 students, both are welcome additions to the community and will continue to ensure that students are well known, well-loved and well taught,” Mr Corr said.

“We’re thankful to the State Government for the funding assistance to provide our school community with these campus enhancements.

“Students will have access to the buildings immediately, getting their hands on high-tech equipment and brand-new classrooms with the support and oversight of fulltime industry professionals.”

The school applied for the grant to upgrade their teaching facilities

following the wishes of parents in Western Sydney surveyed by McCrindle Research in 2019, Mr Corr said.

More than 73 percent of parents whose children are enrolled in various schools in Western Sydney are “looking for the integration of technology and critical thinking skills into their child’s education,” Mr Corr said.

The school in Marsden Park is among the 13 campuses run by the ACC across the country which also accepts students enrolling in distance education pathways.

What is Diabetes?

Diabetes is a condition where there is too much glucose (blood sugar) in the blood. This is normally due to low insulin levels or ineffective insulin which normally helps break down the glucose. Over time, high blood sugar levels can cause long-term damage to your heart, kidneys, eyes and feet.

If people with prediabetes lose 2kg and keep it off, then one in three people will not progress to getting diabetes.

If people with diabetes lose 10% of their bodyweight, in the first six years of diagnoses, 80% of them can achieve remission.

The haemoglobin A1C (HbA1c) is a blood test used to assess how well your glucose has been controlled over the previous few months. If people with diabetes can keep their HbA1c levels less than 7% and other heart risk factors low, they can reduce their risk of complications from the disease, similar to those without diabetes.

There will be stage speakers and panels during these four days, as well as opportunities to check out the vast range of boats.

and those keen to get more involved.”

Nic Douglass, ‘Sailor Girl, is a threetime Open World Champion in fleet sailing with two Olympic Grade Ones in Match Racing and feels hopeful women’s participation in the marine industry will improve. “We had the first female, Elizabeth Hovey, win the America’s Cup this year. I think if you see it, you can be it. We must have open and inclusive conversations and say –hey come along? Or – have you ever thought about doing this? (sailing or boating in some capacity)”.

Tracy Souris, Marina Manager of Sydney’s largest Dry Stack Facility and Marina, Sydney Boathouse, also sits on the Boating Industry Association Board and Chairs the Women in Boating Committee, will be at the show and says, “This committee was established to promote female involvement in recreational boating and provide career pathways into what has been traditionally a very male-dominated space. The key is visibility, seeing women at marinas, on the water, getting involved and having a go.

“Working towards a valuemindset, will see the industry valuing women’s contribution regardless of experience, position or achievement. The committee hopes to build better connections between people already in this industry

David Kurchee from Freedom Boat Club (FBC) is thrilled to see female memberships slowly growing (75,000 members in 415 locations worldwide including Sydney). “Women are not just sitting beside their husbands anymore but driving the boats and enjoying the experiences.

I think because the process is made so simple, you join through the app and just show up and make memories out on the water. We help with everything from getting a boat licence to training, you don’t even need to clean up!” FBC has a stand at the Sydney International Boat show, so come and have a chat.
