Meet the Gerber Family Anthony Gerber, with his wife Katie, has recently joined the Ministry Team at our Church as the Minister responsible for overseeing our Young Adults as well as the Sunday@5 Congregation.

Anthony and Katie met in a school musical in the mid 1990s. Since then, they have got married, lived in 6 homes, had about 10 jobs between them, 8 cars and now have 4 kids and 2 pets! “Life has been busy”, says Anthony, “and it’s had its fair share of ups and downs. But we are feeling in one of the better seasons at the moment.” Anthony grew up in Doon-

side where he lived till he was married. After school he studied Industrial Chemistry, but decided to hand in the lab coat for a business shirt, and so worked for AGL & Smiths Chips in various head office roles. Katie’s family home is in St Clair where her parents still live. She studied Early Childhood Education at UWS Kingswood and worked in a school until she had her first child. “Leaving teaching came with mixed emotions.” Katie reflects, “it was so exciting to be having a baby, but I had 30 kids I loved a lot and it was sad leaving them”. In 2003, Anthony and Katie changed life direction by going to Bible College with the view of doing ministry in Western Sydney. After college, they worked at Kellyville Anglican Church for four years, and this January made the move to Glenmore Park. Anthony will have a key role amongst the 120 young adults at the church. He is excited about mixing with the young adults because of the life and energy they have. He is also looking forward to feeding into the big decisions they will face, such as, “what should I do with my life?”, “who should I marry?” and “does Jesus matter?” Katie adds, “It is such a privilege to be able to do a job like this. We really see it as one of the best jobs you could ever have

because we are building relationships that will last forever”. Anthony and Katie would love to meet you and have you & your family join us during the week or on Sundays, where you, like many others in Glenmore Park, have the opportunity to find real life by reconnecting with God and reconnecting with others. To find out more check out our website (see the details below), give me a call on 4733 1635 or simply turn up on Sunday – we’d love to see you! Rev John Lavender Glenmore Park Anglican Church, Cnr William Howell Dr & Pritchard Pl www.glenmorepark.anglican.asn.au Sundays @ 8.30 & 10.15am, 5 & 7pm plus activities for adults & young people right throughout the week.

Happy 60th Birthday Grandma We love you bigger than the mountains and as tall as the trees!

All our love Flynn, Kobhi, Mummy & Daddy

Have your say on Funding Our Future Penrith City residents are being asked to consider the community benefits of a proposed rate increase. “There are many very positive benefits of the proposal, Penrith City Council General Manager Alan Stoneham said. “Council attracting jobs and investment to the City has always been a high priority for the community and the proposal to renew the Penrith and St Marys City Centres will go a long way to realising these goals. This goes hand-in-hand with introducing a stronger focus on litter reduction in our City and ensuring that our parks and buildings are representative of our quality of life here in Penrith City.” For almost 90% of residential ratepayers the proposed total increase, phased in over 4 years, would be no more than $254.00. “If the community supports the proposal and Council decides to apply for a Special Rate Variation, a total of $15.2m would be raised over four years. This would enable us to deliver on a number of projects and priorities, many of which the community has been requesting for some time,” Mr Stoneham said.

A community hotline phone 4732 7650 will operate from Monday to Friday. the website is: www.ourfuture. com.au/fundingourfuture Consultation ends on 13 March.

Family Focus for swimmers The Daleys are a family of swimmers with both Mum and Dad experienced swimming instructors and their four children all brought up in the water. Brett and Keryn Daley have been able to achieve their dream by taking over the InSwim Aquatic Centre in Blakie Road, Penrith, now called DIVE IN Swimming Academy. The pool is heated and open all year round and there has already been some great improvements to the centre. Brett is experienced in water quality from his time as pool supervisor at Penrith Swimming centre and Keryn is very keen that all swimmers enjoy the pool environment. There are vacancies in the Mums and Bubs and pre school swimming classes and Keryn says “This is a fun way to spend time with your young children from 6 months old as well as teaching them a very important life

skill. Brett is a qualified lifeguard and says ‘Learning to swim is so important but parental supervision is still the best prevention of drowning accidents. Pool safely is a vital issue with so many backyard pools now, especially during the months they are not being used when parents might forget how important water safety is.” Learn to Swim classes are also available for school age children as well as adults. The pool is available for lap swimming as well as private tuition for adults and children who need that little bit extra guidance. There are three squad age groups and Brett and Keryn are keen to get more children learning the correct techniques and body positions as well as swimming fast! Brett is a qualified swimming coach and says “We focus on building a strong foundation of swimming technique and then if our students decide to swim competitively, we help them achieve their goals. Naturally, when the tecnique improves, speed can happen” Aqua Zumba and Aqua Aerobics are fun and effective ways to keep fit. Ring the centre on 4733 6666 for class times and more information.

Ebony has chosen to enrol in a Bachelor of Arts course at University of Western Sydney and plans to become a History teacher. Congratulations to all our 2010 HSC students. We are pleased with their efforts and wish them success in their future careers.

The school now has two Deputy Principals. Ms Gorick is responsible for Years 8, 10 and 12, and Mr Harvie who is responsible for Years 7, 9 and 11. Mr Harvie returns to Glenmore Park High School after working at Chifley College Senior Campus for three years.

The new five period day will allow more regular contact with staff and increase the flexibility in our curriculum. New families can find out what is happening at school through our website or better still come to P&C nights to meet staff and other parents in a friendly and informal gathering.

Baby & Kids Market back in Penrith

Ballroom Dancing for You

Mums (who control the household purse strings) have learnt a valuable lesson from the GFC. They have a canny knack for hunting down a bargain. The Baby & Kids Market is in its ninth year with quality pre-loved baby and kids’ items. This community-based event has grown to over 120 weekend markets serving over 100,000 savings conscious shoppers each year. “It’s no longer a closely guarded secret,” said Jennifer Harrison of Baby & Kids Market “mums have a habit of wanting to spread the word when they’ve had a great experience and thanks largely to this kind of word of mouth, we’re now getting queues outside our markets an hour before we open the doors! Who can blame them when you can literally save thousands of dollars by buying gently used items that look and feel brand new?” As one shopper put it “You’d be mad to spend a fortune decking your children out in the latest brands when they grow out of them in a flash. I shop at the Baby & Kids Market each season and find great brands like Country Road, Seed and Fred Bare for a fraction of the cost.” Be sure to come along and join in with the fun and bargains! Another secret weapon that mums have been quick to embrace is the sales alert newsletter, Mums Grapevine. Set up in 2008 by Melbourne based mum Caroline Taylor, the opt in email service delivers details of big sales events to tens of thousands of Australian mums every week. “Now, more than ever, mums know they can avoid paying retail by hunting around.” said Caroline “Whether that be through sales networks like ours or by buying pre-loved, there are just so many options available! ”

Glenmore Park Action Group Glenmore Park residents met at Floribunda Community Centre for the first GPAG meeting of 2011 on the 8th February. It was encouraging to see an increase in the attendance. Ken Innes, Chair of GPAG, welcomed Commander Ben Feszczuk who gave an update on crime statistics in Glenmore Park. Brendan Sheedy, Glenmore Park Town Centre Manager, gave an update on the new development application for the centre lodged before Christmas. It is now time to provide feedback on what is being proposed. The discussion about the road going through the town centre showed that no one wants it there, except it seems PCC staff. GPAG has lobbied Council since 2005 to have the road closed. Mary Cook, Secretary of GPAG raised the traffic problems on Mulgoa Road. With over 10 sets of lights between Glenmore Parkway and Penrith CBD and add the roadworks and road rage comes to mind. Mary had taken photos that she presented to the meeting when an accident had occurred at the new multi million dol-

lar lights at Jamison Rd intersection after nearly an hour that day to get from Glenmore Parkway exit to Penrith CBD. Mary said “One of the bigger concerns coming back into Glenmore Park is that people are turning right across Mulgoa Rd to enter the new 7-Eleven. There needs to be a barrier preventing this and people should use common sense and use the roundabout to do a u-turn and enter 7-Eleven safely” . Cr Prue Guillame gave her local council report as she has done each meeting since being elected to Penrith City Council. She is the patron of the Glenmore Park Brumbies and an update on the upgrades to the local playing facilities for both rugby league and soccer was welcome. Cr Guillame spoke of her involvement with GPAG and how proud she has been to have the opportunity to work with local residents. She has stepped down from her role as Vice President of GPAG as she is the Labor candidate for Mulgoa in the coming state election and GPAG is non political. Cr Guillame said “I am not going to make huge promises to the meeting, I will speak up for the community,

I have shown this through Council and I will continue if elected for the State Member for Mulgoa”. Lastly the local Glenmore Park Community worker from Nepean Community and Neighborhood Services informed the meeting of the upcoming events and activities. For more information please contact Domenica, 4733 1499 The next GPAG community meeting is 10th May, 7.30pm.

Prue Guillaume, the Labour candidate, lives in Glenmore Park . Prue has lived in Nepean Valley all her life, and was school captain of Caroline Chisholm Catholic College in Glenmore Park. She works for the MS Society of NSW. As a local councillor on Penrith City Council, Prue has spoken up for her area and fought hard to deliver results on issues such as: • Forcing the State Government to reject the proposed tip at Orchard Hills; • Forcing the State Government to back down on a plan to dump toxic waste at Kemps Creek; • Improving local sporting fields; • Cleaning up the Blue Hills Wetlands; and • Winning a commitment for a fenced off-leash dog park. Prue wants to speak up for her community in NSW Parliament. Telephone Prue: 0401 678 520

Tanya Davies, the Liberal candidate says “Serving our local community has always been important to me. For the last 11 years I’ve worked in higher education, including the University of Western Sydney and Western Sydney TAFE, supporting the training and development of young people. Prior to this I worked as a Physiotherapist in our public health system and learnt first hand what we need for better health care for our community. As a local councillor, I have successfully fought for local road safety improvements and, most recently, secured a commitment from Council to upgrade local playgrounds. I’m passionate about our area. My husband, Mark, and I are raising our three year old daughter, Laura, in Glenmore Park. As a mother, I have a genuine interest in making sure my daughter grows up in a strong, safe and caring community.That’s why I’m campaigning for more frontline police, improved public transport, the Erskine Park Link Road to the M7 to take trucks off our streets and muchneeded resources for Nepean Hospital. I know that by becoming your local member in a government led by Barry O’Farrell, we can make a real difference in our community and work towards Making NSW Number One Again”. Telephone Tanya: 0435 874 850 Patrick Darley-Jones, local business owner from Luddenham is the Greens candidate “I joined the Greens because I saw in them a progressive, grassroots, truly democratic party, a party that listens to people and is not biased by vested interests,” Patrick said. Patrick has been in manufacturing all his working life and is passionate about keeping manufacturing jobs in Australia; he has watched with dismay successive governments of both major parties turn a blind eye to the export of jobs to China and elsewhere. “Manufacturing is a true wealth creation industry where people add value to materials and items and so contribute to the economy of the nation,” Patrick says. “More than ever we need clean industry jobs in the Nepean region that focus on sustainability and technology, jobs that benefit both society and the environment.” Patrick believes there are fantastic opportunities for trades people, professionals and small businesses in building a ‘Clean Energy and Technology Hub’ here in western Sydney. “The long neglected Badgerys Creek airport site in particular, currently owned by the Federal government, would be the perfect site,” said Patrick. “The Greens will provide leadership for the future, jobs for our children, security for our way of life, indeed for the health of our planet,” said Patrick and he urged the community to “vote for change, REAL Change in 2011.” To help the Greens campaign email mulgoa@nsw.greens.org.au or call Patrick on 0416 528 455.

Tony Robinson is standing as an Independent. Candidate. He is a 41 year old delivery driver from Penrith. He is married with 2 adult children. He says “‘I am running for the seat of Mulgoa as an Independent because I am tired of the way the government is treating the people. Both major parties are to blame. They release promise after promise and I am not sure which ones they have honoured. Australians are way overtaxed. The government should stop giving so much money overseas. I was always told charity begins at home - what about our homeless and the people in trouble here?” Amongst other issues he believes the health system needs more nurses and hospitals upgraded, roads need major work, better public transport, tax reduction for farmers, better public facilities for rural NSW, reduce the import of food in half, Reduce the time people come to Australia to work with a work visa by half, abolish the point system for driver licences and reduce the length of stop over time on truck drivers.

Flood relief Tshirt ‘Riders through the storm’ Local illustrator Blair Sayer came up with the idea of a T shirt design to help relief effort after the tragic flooding in Australia. Brazil, and Sri Lanka were also included with an animal from each country represented in the design. The online community-driven design company, Threadless felt the need to do something to help fellow community members and their loved ones that were greatly affected by the devastating floods. Blair worked with 3 other designers from America, Brazil and Brisbane to collaborate on a flood relief shirt design. The resulting design, Riders Through The Storm, is now available for purchase through Threadless.com, and $9 from the sale of each shirt will go toward flood relief. Threadless has partnered with The Queensland Charity and Welfare Association (TAQCWA), whose

mission is to actively serve people by acquiring charitable capital, making philanthropic grants and providing services that contribute to the health, welfare and educational needs of the under privileged, and is actively seeking other charities in the affected areas to ensure their donation goes to the areas that need it most. For more information, or to purchase a t-shirt, visit http://www. threadless.com/news/680079/ Flood_Relief_Tee_Riders_Through_ The_Storm.
