School Land Sales

Pollies at School

Member for Mulgoa, Diane Beamer MP said a Daily Telegraph story relating to the Glenmore Park school land sell off was misleading. “The facts surrounding the sale of land at Glenmore Park were that the 7430 square metres of land sold at auction for $1.1 million in February 2009 was declared surplus to requirements in 1994 by the then Coalition Government Education Minister Virginia Chadwick,” said Ms Beamer. “The Land was not part of the school grounds and it had been approved for sale 15 years ago with the money from the sale being allocated for use by the Department on other infrastructure.” Minister for Education and Training Verity Firth said Government policy is that the Department only sells land where it is deemed it is not needed for educational use; and no school land can be sold without extensive community consultation.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Education Julia Gillard and Federal Member for Lindsay, David Bradbury, met with local school principals at Glenmore Park Public School recently to discuss the roll-out of the Building the Education Revolution program in the local community. Glenmore Park Public School is receiving $3 million for new classroom facilities.

Making Sense of Suffering How can you make sense of suffering? Suffering can come to us in all shapes and sizes and it almost always causes pain. What do we do with it? Laugh it off? Struggle through? Become angry with God? Give up in despair? Or make a conscious decision to trust God and look to him, trusting that he is a good God who is always working for our good and not for our harm? It is the experience of millions of Christians right throughout the ages, that even though from time to time,

some extraordinarily sad things have happened to them, they have found that their faith in our good and caring God has enabled them to persevere in even the toughest of times. One member of our Church, in her experience of great suffering, echoed the thoughts of many others, saying, “I can know I can stick with God because he will never let me down!” “Making Sense of Suffering” is the title of the next Coffee Night to be held at Glenmore Park Anglican Church on Saturday 29th August getting underway at 7.45pm. Come for the excellent desserts and the great coffee but more than anything come to find out how you can be equipped to “Make Sense of Suffering”. Would you like to know more? Give me a call or book your spot on 4733 1635. Rev John Lavender, Glenmore Park Anglican Church. Services on Sundays at 8.30am & 10.15am, 5pm & 7pm plus activities for adults & young people right throughout the week. www.glenmorepark. anglican.asn.au.

Take Advantage of fantastic Government Rebates NOW!

Solar water heating? Glenmore Park and Regentville home owners now have a new solution to soaring electricity prices which increased by 21% in NSW on 1st July. Solar hot water heating is the best answer to reduce your electricity bill. Solahart, Australia’s leading solar water heating company, has opened a new dealership in Wallacia with Louis & Melissa Pulo. “Depending on the system you choose and the location of your home, switching to solar reduces your water heating energy consumption by up to 75%” Louis said. The cost of making the switch is now even cheaper thanks to the combination of State and Federal Government rebates. Last month the NSW State Government extended its solar hot water system rebate for another two years, while the Federal Government has increased its rebate scheme and removed the means test. So now is the time to get into Solar. Together with their broad range of rainwater tanks “Above All Tanks and Pumps” is proud to offer Solahart Hot Water Systems so we can all play a part in helping reduce carbon omissions and saving on one of our precious commodities “water”.

• Tank packages • Installation packages • Our reputation is quality • Offering friendly, service advice and support of Solahart Hot water Systems and Rainharvesting Solutions.

Water Wise Rules New Water Wise Rules have been introduced for Greater Sydney, ending more than five years of tough drought restrictions. The Water Wise campaign new rules allow: • Hand-held hoses, sprinklers and watering systems on any day before 10am and after 4pm. Hand-held hoses must be fitted with a trigger nozzle when watering • Children to play under the sprinkler on a hot day • Washing vehicles using a trigger nozzle • Fire hoses for fire-fighting only • No hosing of hard surfaces except for health and safety purposes or emergency and construction activities • Automatic exclusion for nurseries, market gardeners, landscapers, garden contractors, bowling greens, cricket wickets, golf tees and croquet, hockey, tennis and racing surfaces. Fines of $220 for individuals and $550 for businesses apply for breaches of the Water Wise Rules. Minister for Water, Phil Costa said “Sydney’s dam levels have continued to rise over the past year and our 20 recycling schemes across greater Sydney are recycling about 25 billion litres of water each year. More than one in four households are using water-saving devices to save water in the family home. Recycled water will soon meet around 12 per cent of Sydney’s water needs while the desalination plant coming online this summer can provide up to 15 per cent of water supply.”

Inswim Champion Inswim Swimming Club representative swimmer, Michelle Bowd, 15, is competing at the Telstra Australian Short Course Championships in Hobart, Tasmania, in August 2009. Michelle has swum with Inswim Swimming Club for six winter seasons and competes in the 50 & 100m Backstroke and 50 & 100m Butterfly. For most 15 year olds the task of competing against Australia’s most elite swimmers would be daunting, but Michelle is taking it in her stride. “The first time I ever swam at those levels, I was pretty scared and nervous, but this time around I’m not as nervous, I’m more focused and training harder for it.” Training these days is six or more swim sessions a week and then an additional 2 gym sessions, and of course eating healthy “which is killing me!” Coach Steve Bricknell thinks Michelle is one of the most talented swimmers that Penrith has ever seen. “Michelle has represented Inswim at National age & National Open levels in the past. However, this year is special because Michelle is at her best and ready to take on the best Australia has got.” The Championships will be televised on Network 10. All the members of Inswim Swimming Club will be cheering Michelle on with every stroke! Enquiries for Inswim Swimming Club to John Amputch on 0414 351 923.

Deputy Prime Minister Julia Gillard and Federal Member for Lindsay, David Bradbury, with students at Glenmore Park PS

* See this photo in colour at: www.glenmoregazette.com.au

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Education Julia Gillard and Federal Member for Lindsay, David Bradbury, met with local school principals at Glenmore Park Public School recently to discuss the roll-out of the Building the Education Revolution program in the local community Federal Member for Lindsay, David Bradbury said ”This is the largest school modernisation in Australia’s history, and is helping to stimulate the economy by investing in much-needed infrastructure in our primary and secondary schools and supporting local jobs”. “I would like to thank Glenmore Park Public School for hosting the forum and to all the school principals who came along on the day, and I look forward to continuing to work with all of our local schools as the stimulus package funding is progressively rolled out.”

Free assistance with completing your tax return is now available at the Office of Federal Member for Lindsay, David Bradbury, through the Australian Tax Office’s Tax Help service. A community volunteer, trained by the Australian Tax Office, will be available to assist local residents on low incomes to fill out their annual tax return. “Tax Help is a free service provided by the Australian Tax Office to give eligible residents some assistance with their returns at tax time,” said Mr Bradbury. “I am pleased to be hosting Tax Help again at my office, and I would encourage all those who are eligible to make an appointment with the community volunteer and take advantage of this service.” Please call the Office of David Bradbury on 4732 1801 to check your eligibility and make an appointment.

On Tuesday afternoons, a group of students

is working with choreographer Shaun Parker to develop an original work using troupes from two other sites in the Diocese. It is a specially commissioned 30-minute Dance Theatre work that will be performed at venues such as Riverside Theatre and The Joan Sutherland Centre in September.
