CREEC TO COME ALIVE WITH CREEPY CRAWLY FUN OUTDOOR ADVENTURES ARE coming to Caboolture Region Environmental Education Centre, with animals, games and hands-on fun for World Environment Day. The centre will come alive with creepy crawly fun from 10am on Saturday 4 June for CREEC Enviro Explorers. Mayor Peter Flannery said visitors will be spoilt for choice with the huge selection of free activities on offer. “You can tackle the all-abilities playground, featuring a wheelchair accessible play area, sensory walls, flying foxes and slides - or get your hands dirty with a seedling planting workshop,” he said. An engaging line up of performers will take to the stage during the event, with children learning about our environment through song, shows and reptile demonstrations. Visitors can also download the Agents of Discovery app, unlocking an interactive educational bushwalk around the centre. Division 12 Councillor Tony Latter said he was looking forward to seeing the community come together and explore the natural environment and all it has to offer. “It’s a great way to celebrate World Environment Day,” he said. “Kids can explore native wildlife, snakes, reptiles and little critters with live shows and interactive displays. “They can choose from an array of enviro-themed workshops and the more adventurous explorers may want to tackle the huge rock-climbing wall.” There will be information stalls for parents and markets stalls offering environmentally-friendly products. Grab a bite to eat from one of the delicious food vendors or bring a packed picnic and blanket. CREEC Enviro Explorers will run from 10am to 2pm on Saturday 4 June at Caboolture Region Environmental Education Centre, 150 Rowley Road, Burpengary.

Kyle Irving Putting the Focus on Helping Kids Words: Sheree Hoddinett Photographer: Steve Baker

A PASSION FOR helping and encouraging kids is a big part of why Kyle Irving has ventured down the path he is on. With more than 17 years of experience working with kids in a school environment, Kyle, along with his wife Kylie, have created Kid Centric - a new business that puts the focus on providing in home behavioural support and counselling services for children and adolescents. Through his own personal experiences and a general concern for the overpowering nature of the outside world, Kyle wants to make a difference for as many families as he can, one child at a time. As the practice manager and behaviour management therapist, Kyle’s idea to start Kid Centric came to fruition late last year, gaining momentum in the first few months of 2022. He is currently studying psychology to further his skills and has plans to eventually grow the business to create an overall hub for families to get the assistance they need in one place. “My background is in education, I’m a teacher aide and have been for 17 years, so I’ve seen it all,” he says. “There are a lot of behaviour issues out there. “Basically what I’m working towards through Kid Centric is trying to implement something for kids before they reach the point of being out of control.” Working with children aged between three and 12, both neurotypical and neurodiverse, Kyle goes into the family home, taking the time to get to know the child and their parents, going over their background and strategies already in place to form an overall picture of how best to assist in the circumstances. “I also observe the child and the interactions between the parent and child and how they deal with any behaviours that may occur while I’m there,” he says. “Once I have all the information I need, I go away and come up with any visuals and charts that are specific to that child before going back in to implement those, set boundaries and rules and guide the parents in where to set those boundaries and how to enforce them with their child.”

who naturally just gets kids,” she says. “Kyle with kids is extraordinary. Kids have always gravitated towards him. It’s something that you either have or you don’t and he definitely has that ability to build the necessary rapport with them.”

them with the core underlying issue behind their behaviour.

For now Kid Centric is a mobile business, but the plan is to eventually settle in a business based location.

“For us, it’s more than just that one appointment, it’s understanding the child, the family and research as well,” Kylie adds. “Because we’re all about, there’s no one size fits all, every kid is different and we just want to be able to help specific to that child and that family.”

“I’m hoping to build Kid Centric to a point where we have an OT and a speech therapist in the same building and it becomes one central hub for all those early interventions,” Kyle says. “Parents don’t know where to go,” Kylie adds. “They don’t know where to start, so we thought if we had everything in the one place, they can come to us and we can help.” For Kyle, it’s about getting to know the kids, understanding them and their point of view and also working out the best ways to help

Currently operating as a mobile business within the Moreton Bay Region, Kid Centric is taking new appointments without a waiting list. No referral is necessary and NDIS customers may also be able to claim on their plan. To find out more visit www.kidcentric.com.au or email admin@kidcentric.com.au.

BRAKING THE CYCLE THE BRAKING THE Cycle program at PCYC Caboolture is urgently looking for volunteer driver mentors. Braking the Cycle is a learner driver mentoring program that helps disadvantaged youth get their mandatory 100 hours to obtain their licence. We match our volunteer mentors with program participants and supply all materials and training.

Kyle also uses emotional regulation games with younger children to help them understand their feelings and emotions and where they might stem from. He says this is especially relevant for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD and anxiety.

PCYC Caboolture Braking the Cycle Program Coordinator, Emma Hart, states, “obtaining a driver’s licence is a major milestone for most young people. Having a licence helps young people secure employment and access further education and housing opportunities.” The BTC program in Caboolture has had over 40 successful licence graduates since the program started in 2019.

“For a lot of young kids, a lot of their behaviour is very typical for their age, especially if it’s a first child, parents don’t always know what to expect,” Kyle says.

For thousands of young Queenslanders, completing their mandatory 100 hours of supervised driving is a major obstacle. PCYC Caboolture is experiencing this firsthand, with over 115 young people on the waitlist to access the program. To be a driver mentor, volunteers must have (or be able to obtain) a blue card, have held an open licence for more than one year and be able to commit at least two hours per week.

His sidekick in life and in the business, Kylie, who does counselling with ages 12 and up, couldn’t speak more highly of her partner in crime.

If you or someone you know may be interested in the program, give Coordinator Emma an email on emma.hart@pcyc.org.au or call 0400 538 565.

“He won’t say it but Kyle is one of those people

“Once you figure out the root of the problem, then you can start addressing that instead of the aggression or the outburst,” he says.

PASSIONATE ABOUT PEOPLE

WHEN IT COMES to childcare, Moreton Bay infants and toddlers deserve a positive and supportive experience. The key to providing this is in the people who encourage every step they take towards essential milestones. In recognition of their team's care and devotion, Sesame Lane is the first early learning service to win the coveted Customer Service Excellence Award in the Moreton Bay Business Innovation Awards. "Winning the award was a wonderful way to recognise how caring and devoted the team is to the children in their care and the families who trust their precious little ones to us each day," said Ms Kerri Smith, Head of Sesame Lane Care and Kindergarten. Sesame Lane prides itself on being more than an early learning service, providing a coffee station for that early morning drop off along with strong community partnerships

with businesses, schools, clubs, churches and charities within the region to benefit their customers, the children, the Sesame Lane team and the greater community. Children are involved in making meals using produce they have grown together in on-site gardens whilst parents no longer need to worry about missing their child's journey as regular photos and updates are provided via Sesame Lane's secure Storypark Parent App. In fact, the variety of programs available cover topics such as Japanese, Music, Yoga and Cooking. Employee of the Year Award recipient Therese Thomson said that her relationships with children and their families bring true happiness to her life. "I'm so grateful to work for such a caring company who are truly innovative but also values their employees," said Therese. "I love

every part of it because the children bring me joy. When I see children that are engaged and happy and the relationship with the educators is healthy and reciprocal, that lovely balance it has is really rewarding." These quality and meaningful relationships do not happen by chance, requiring a dedication to an investment in people. For Sesame Lane, this includes comprehensive training and development for all team members, including sponsoring diploma qualified educators to complete their Bachelor of Education to further their careers and deliver quality early learning. "Whilst our team consists only of those who are dedicated to providing quality and trustworthy childcare, the team also cares for the wellbeing of every parent as they strive to make the childcare journey a breeze." Said Ms Smith. "That's why we're the only award-winning early learning service in the Moreton Bay Region."

Merinda Coles Setting the Bar High

Words: Sheree Hoddinett

IT’S NOT OFTEN you find a teenager with a strong plan for their future. Merinda Coles is certainly the exception to that rule and her ambitious nature will lead her there. The bright and bubbly year 11 student has a strong passion for politics and law and has been chosen as the representative for the Kurwongbah electorate in Queensland Youth Parliament. It was a long application process but one that ultimately paid off in the end. “I’m very proud to be a part of something that could really change the way the youth of today are perceived,” Merinda says of her new role. “I feel genuinely privileged to have been accepted, especially in a year that was so difficult to get in due to the high number of applicants.” As part of her role on the portfolio for Justice, Legal Affairs and Corrections, Merinda will have the opportunity to work with other Youth Parliament members to write a Bill proposing a law reform they are passionate about. “I want to write something to do with vaping because I am very much against it and I want to protect the youth from it,” Merinda says. “It has dangerous side effects and it is such a waste of life if people my age are dying from such a stupid decision they make.” Merinda’s interest in the political field was sparked by her family dynamic, with her parents (who she speaks very highly of!) working in government fields. She hopes to

eventually work in criminal law with a potential venture into politics down the track. “I've always loved elections and I've always had strong opinions on politics,” she says. “I think it's important that young people have these opinions on things because it shapes our future and it impacts us down the line. “I wrote a proposal to a few ministers and government officials to get politics in young people's lives through school classes and websites which would provide information on how to vote and which parties offered what. This led me down a path on which I met the Prime Minister, the Deputy Prime Minister, the Health Minister and the Treasurer, all of whom I managed to get photos with.” There’s more to Merinda than meets the eye. Aside from politics, she has a love of music (particularly 70s and 80s such as Queen), movies, books, reading about and researching true crime and psychology. She’s also a prefect for Garawi at school. “I think human nature and how people react to things is fascinating,” she says. “I do debating, which really helps me connect with different grades and teachers. It also helps with my public speaking and ties in strongly to law and politics. I'm a mega nerd but I own it. I think people should just be who they want to be and not let people bring them down or get in the way of who they are.”

Educating Youth Against Domestic and Family Violence DOMESTIC AND FAMILY Violence (DFV) is a pervasive community-wide issue, with the Queensland Police Service (QPS) responding to an average of 330 DFV occurrences every day. The QPS works in partnership with PCYC Queensland (PCYC) and Queensland Blue Light to support the delivery of the RUBY and Elevate programs. RUBY—Rise Up, Be Yourself— was informed by the work of a QPS officer who had personal experience with DFV and discovered that physical fitness was a way to regain confidence and control over her life. RUBY is a free physical fitness program run by selected PCYC clubs across the state for women who are, have been, or are likely to experience DFV. It is designed to empower women by building physical strength and contributing to general well-being, emotional resilience, self-esteem and confidence through physical exercise in a safe, violence-free environment.

Sessions are facilitated by a qualified, female personal trainer and a female police officer attends and participates in the sessions. While RUBY has been running in PCYCs since 2016, Queensland Blue Light’s ELEVATE program has been developed more recently as a way of connecting with high school students who may be experiencing or witnessing DFV in their family or circle of friends. ELEVATE is a DFV primary prevention program designed to educate young people of the social, personal, physical and emotional harms of DFV and empower them to make better life choices in their relationships.

ELEVATE is also able to share some of the course content from the highly acclaimed Love Bites program. Collaborating with community organisations to deliver programs such as RUBY and ELEVATE is helping to empower and encourage victims to reach out for help, as well as educating community members on how to play their part in recognising the signs and preventing DFV.

It is targeted to Years 10, 11 and 12, with pilot programs running in four schools in south-east Queensland since late 2020.

If you or someone you know is being impacted by domestic and family violence, we encourage you to report it to police or access support services.

It is run in conjunction with Queensland Blue Light, with a QPS officer, a Queensland Blue Light worker and a school staff member attending each session.

Don’t be a bystander – everyone has a role to play in preventing domestic and family violence.

Flushable Products Standard Aims to Stop the block Don’t rush to flush…look for the logo… that’s the message to users of loos, latrines and lavatories across Noosa, the Sunshine Coast and Moreton Bay. Local water and sewerage services utility Unitywater is backing new national criteria for flushable products. Under the standard, shop-bought items will carry a distinctive logo, signalling whether the product is suitable for a lap around the s-bend at the end of its useful life. “We’ve always said: Please, only flush the 3Ps; toilet paper, pee and poo. Now, also take a moment to check household products for the flushable logo,” said Unitywater Executive Manager Customer Delivery Rhett Duncan. “Remember, even if a product’s packaging indicates it can be flushed, that doesn’t mean it has been tested for compatibility with our sewer systems. If there’s no logo, it needs to go in the bin. That product has the potential to block household plumbing and our sewer network. “When the system gets blocked, wastewater can overflow manholes and back up into streets, gardens and homes. And trust me, no one wants that. Please, don’t rush to flush – look for the logo,” he said.

Havn. Cafe

The four sessions include guest presentations from a police officer working in the DFV and Vulnerable Persons Unit as well as from a community member who is a survivor of DFV.

Wastewater systems are designed to treat waste, known as the three Ps (toilet paper, pee and poo), from toilets and urinals. However, increasingly other items are going into the toilet, due to marketing claims they’re flushable or simply because they are used in bathrooms. The blocked pipes caused by these items cost the urban water industry tens of millions of dollars annually. In the past 12 months, Unitywater crews cleared almost 900 blockages from the main sewer pipe network and the household connections which transport waste for a population of around 800,000 people across, Noosa, the Sunshine Coast and Moreton Bay.

June 2022

Wet wipes and paper towels, which were never intended to go down the toilet, are among the most common causes of blockages. Other items found at Unitywater’s sewage treatment plants include false teeth, pet toys, TV remotes, fishing lures, a floral dress, rubber thongs and a plastic python. Adherence to the Flushable Products Standard, administered by the nation’s peak standards authority Standards Australia, is voluntary. In addition to labelling, the standard provides test methods and criteria for determining whether products are suitable for flushing down a toilet. The new Flushable Products Standard (DR AS/ NZS 5328:2021) sets a framework, test methods and criteria for determining if products are suitable for flushing down a toilet. It also provides guidance and requirements for the labelling of products that are likely to be flushed down the toilet. It excludes toilet paper, liquids and soluble products. The symbol below means a product has passed the criteria and is safe for flushing.

or

The standard was developed by a technical committee including manufacturers, water utilities, peak bodies and consumer groups. What is a flushable product? A flushable product is one considered suitable for disposal through wastewater networks and treatment systems, including onsite treatment systems. It is flushable if it does not materially adversely impact those systems or remain recognisable in effluent leaving them after being through the wastewater treatment process.

I do really believe that keeping my mind active with what I do is very helpful because if you don’t use it, you lose it.

Bob Bristow:

The Importance of Adult Literacy Words: Sheree Hoddinett Photography: Contributed

FOR BOB BRISTOW, the opportunity to help others within the community was a big drawcard in joining Encircle’s Adult Literacy Program as a tutor. The program offers one-on-one tutoring to adults looking for support with reading, writing and numeracy skills. Along with helping individuals, Bob has also invested his time in the Conversational English Group which is available to support those individuals looking to improve their English speaking skills in a relaxed environment. It’s all culminated in a life experience Bob never expected but thoroughly enjoys and looks forward to each week.

people about. In that regard, I think it’s as beneficial for me as the people who come along.”

It was by chance that Bob came across the program back in 2018. Enjoying the benefits of retirement and looking for ways to volunteer in the community, Bob saw a sign outside the Encircle office in Lawnton seeking literacy tutors. He made an inquiry, completed the necessary training and the rest is history. Bob credits the program with not only allowing him to keep his mind active but also interact with and make a difference in the lives of others.

“It probably takes more time than I thought it Wwould, but I do a fair bit of lesson preparation. But that’s the way I am,” he says. “I like to be organised, I like to know how my lesson is going to run. I do a fair bit of prep work, so I’m confident in how it’s going to run.

“I think it definitely has been different from what I initially expected,” Bob says. “I do find, as an older person, it stimulates my thinking and I think it’s good for my brain health to think up things to talk to these

With his working background in the government sector covering mainly administrative roles, Bob says he didn’t require any specific skills for his tutoring duties, just to be literate and have an interest in assisting those who needed it. Although originally focusing on individual support and attending the group sessions, Bob now convenes the Conversational English Group at North Lakes and has one individual student for tutoring.

“At any one time it’s generally a pretty diverse group of people and also the interesting part of it is that there are people with a variety of abilities in English that come along. “Some have very basic skills and some are quite high level. I’ve found that you need to provide material that is at different skill levels

USC Moreton Bay Campus Ready for Stage Two THE UNIVERSITY OF the Sunshine Coast has appointed award-winning construction company BADGE to build the second stage of its campus at Moreton Bay.

lecture theatre, state-of-the-art learning technology, nursing simulation labs, engineering labs, a ‘makerspace’ and library facilities.

The buildings will be located opposite the campus’s large foundation building, adding 12,500 square metres to the existing floor space of 16,000 square metres.

BADGE has delivered commercial and industrial projects across Australia, last year winning construction awards for multiple university and school builds.

Facilities in the second stage will include additional teaching and learning spaces, research laboratories, an industry hub and event space, a student gym and sports hall, a sports science facility, student hub and breakout spaces, outdoor spaces and amenities, and multi-level parking.

USC Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Helen Bartlett said the appointment of a builder was a key milestone in bringing the USC Moreton Bay master plan and vision to life.

The foundation building contains a 460-seat

“We have the designs from Brisbane-based architectural practice KIRK, and we look forward to BADGE realising these plans over the coming months,” Professor Bartlett said.

June 2022

“Growth at the Moreton Bay campus has exceeded our expectations since it opened in 2020, and these buildings will provide students with more areas to study, collaborate and socialise.” With its student population expected to reach 10,000 students by 2030, the campus will become landmark infrastructure for The Mill at Moreton Bay, which Moreton Bay Regional Council has planned as a sustainable, mixed-use community for residents, students, businesses and industries, and visitors. Stage two of construction is expected to be complete in mid-2023.

for people with different abilities. It’s very enlightening and interesting but it’s been a fantastic experience.” Within the group environment, Bob says they have had attendees from countries including but not limited to India, China, Mongolia, Colombia in South America, Venezuela, Ethiopia, France, Italy, Iran, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Korea and Hong Kong “It’s good to be able to encourage them and see them improve,” he says. “I remember one particular lesson that I did was on Australia colloquial language so our slang words. How anyone makes any sense of that coming from another country, it amazes me! It was interesting and it’s always a fun group to be with.” Outside of his volunteer role, Bob certainly knows how to keep the boredom at bay. He frequently treks in Nepal (prior to Covid) but is keen to get back into regular walking again as well as bushwalking. He also enjoys gardening, growing orchids and he does lapidary work (cutting stones). He has a soft spot for his beloved grandchildren and of course reading features on his list of interests, particularly non-fiction science, history and economics. “I think keeping active keeps you busy,” he says. “I try to eat well and exercise. I do really believe that keeping my mind active with what I do is very helpful because if you don’t use it, you lose it.” Given the time he has spent volunteering with Encircle, Bob cherishes the opportunity and would highly recommend it to others wanting to take on a volunteering role. It also has a personal angle with Bob coming to Australia as a migrant himself when he was a child. “It gives you a sense of giving back to the community and being able to contribute. I’ve had the benefits of working in a good job in my time and it’s nice in retirement to be able to give a little bit back,” he says. “We came here from England, I spoke the language but even in that we still had issues settling into Australia. Coming from a different culture, even an English speaking one, it has it’s difficulties settling in a new country. “I think one of the great things about it was the friendly people who helped us at the time, so for me it’s an opportunity to do something of the same for other people and particularly those of another cultural background, because settling into Australia from a non-English speaking culture must be that much more difficult. “So for anyone else, it’s a great thing to do. You don’t need any teaching background. Marian our co-ordinator runs a little course and helps you get orientated towards the program and then she matches up students and tutors that will click. I encourage anyone to do it because I think it’s an amazing opportunity to help others.” For further information about Encircle and their programs, please visit encircle.org.au or phone 34653200.

Crime Rates Drop in Moreton Bay Words: Bruce Giddings

FEWER CRIMES HAVE been committed across the Moreton Bay Police District over the last two calendar years compared to the two prior years, according to official figures. For 2020 and 2021, the total crime numbers dropped more than 16%. A total of 72,214 crimes were reported in the area, compared to 86,588 for the prior two-year period. The years 2020 and 2021 were punctuated with Covid 19 lockdowns, with many residents confined to home. Numbers published on the mypolice website reveal a sharp drop in property crime including Unlawful Entry, Other Theft, and Other Property Damage.

The category of Other Theft reduced by more than 28%, from 5,890 offences during 2018-19, down to a total of 4,226 during 2020-21. Covid lockdowns in Queensland have largely ceased, being now restricted to only a few health and aged facilities. Despite this, the overall crime rates in the Moreton district have remained lower than the average reported over the last five years. The mypolice website reports a total of 633 offences in April this year, compared to 965 offences in March 2020, the month that Covid 19 movement and density restrictions began.

Unlawful Entry reduced by nearly a quarter, dropping from 1,456 instances down to 1,117 for the same period.

Social media and mainstream television and newspapers continue to carry stories indicating that crime rates are ever spiraling upwards. The figures published by the police service indicate otherwise.

The crime of Other Property Damage dropped by 933 offences over the same period, a 15.4 % reduction.

LENDLEASE UNVEILS ITS NEWEST MORAYFIELD COMMUNITY

WOULD YOU LIKE to make a meaningful difference to the lives of our older citizens and gain much in return? Volunteer for our Re-Engaging Volunteers into Residential Aged Care Program A call to fill a critical shortage of volunteers in residential aged care facilities (RACFs) hopes to inspire more Queenslanders to provide social support for some of the most vulnerable in our community. The Re-engaging Volunteers into Residential Aged Care Facilities Program is encouraging new and returning volunteers to experience the joy and satisfaction of giving back to the community. Volunteers are needed for non-clinical social support to help in aged care facilities, providing companionship and assisting with leisure activities to combat social isolation and loneliness. Volunteer numbers have fallen dramatically as a result of COVID-19. More than 70 per cent of volunteers were not able to assist during the pandemic. Volunteers are a critical life force in many communities and have been sadly missed. Queenslanders interested in making a difference to the lives of others are being asked to re-engage and experience the rich satisfaction and community connection that volunteering offers by bringing companionship and joy to residents of aged care facilities. Volunteers in metropolitan and regional areas will be matched with a local residential aged care facility that registers for the program. Volunteers will need to complete informative, helpful, accessible training and undertake a police check at no cost to volunteers. Volunteers will also be required to show evidence of COVID-19 and flu vaccinations, as relevant. CEO of Volunteering Queensland said: “Queenslanders are compassionate, generous, and supportive of their local and wider communities. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen tens of thousands join the Care Army to lend a helping hand to others who found themselves vulnerable and in need. With COVID-19 restrictions easing, we are seeing more and more volunteers come forward wanting to make a difference. It is heartening to see volunteers care for the wellbeing of our older citizens in aged care facilities across Queensland.” “These volunteers will provide warm and joyful companionship and social connection by sharing conversations, outings and entertainment, allowing residents to feel part of the community once more.” Ms Basanovic said. “Volunteers have long played a vital role in aged care, and we welcome all volunteers who would like to bring a little happiness to the lives of others through this mutually rewarding program.” If you are interested in volunteering for this fulfilling, meaningful program, register at www. agedcarevolunteering.org.au. This program is an initiative of the Department of Health supported by state and territory volunteering peak bodies.

LENDLEASE HAS UNVEILED its new $500 million residential community, Kinma Valley, which is expected to be home to more than 6,500 people, in one of Australia’s fastest growing regions for new home buyers. Located midway between Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast in the northern suburb of Morayfield, the new community is approved for up to 2,500 new homes alongside an approximately 31-hectare central green corridor. In a major collaboration, the masterplan was designed after extensive consultation, to consider all aspects of the future community with the views of local groups and community members incorporated into the final design. “After years of in-depth planning and extensive consultation, today marks an incredibly important milestone for Lendlease and the Moreton Bay community,” said Mr Matthew Mears, Lendlease Managing Director, Communities. “Our vision for Kinma Valley is to not only create a market leading sustainable community that meets the needs and aspirations of homebuyers but to build a sense of belonging and connection to our newest community. With healthy outdoor living an important focus, the community has plans for 12 parks, several adventure playgrounds and more than six kilometres of walking and cycling paths, all interconnected with the extensive central nature reserve. A vast variety of new homes will be available to suit a wide range of buyers, including first home buyers, young families, upgraders, and empty nesters. Larger lots, distinctive building materials, innovative street design and casual neighbourhood meeting spaces will be key features of the community. An innovative community hub will offer convenience shopping and dining complementing the existing wide range of shopping and other services in the area. “The natural aspects will be one of the biggest drawcards for home buyers with the development offering incredible views to the Glasshouse Mountains, family-friendly neighbourhoods and green open spaces,” said Mr Mears. The name Kinma comes from the Kabi Kabi First Nation Peoples language which translates to ‘awake,’ capturing the spirit of a community that promises new beginnings and the opportunity for happiness and wellbeing. The first lots are expected to be released soon with initial civil works expected to commence in the coming months. To find out more, https://communities.lendlease.com/queensland/kv-register/

Narangba Eagles Celebrates 30 Years Words: Sheree Hoddinett Photographer: Contributed

DOWN IN THE Eagles Nest, excitement abounds as the Narangba Eagles Football Club celebrates the milestone of 30 years as a club. While it may not seem like a massive achievement, considering where the club started and where they now find themselves, they have definitely come a long way. When the club first kicked off back in 1992, they fielded seven teams with a total of 62 players and were based on the same ground as the rugby league and baseball clubs in Williamina Court. Fast forward to 2022, they now have almost 700 registered players at their Harris Avenue home ground, a number which continues to grow due to popularity and community interest. A limited edition 30-year club polo shirt, naming teams after previous club presidents, a changed logo for the anniversary year and also in the works a celebratory dinner, are just some of the things the Eagles are doing to recognise and mark 30 years in the community. Club president Darren Magin, who has been with the Eagles now for seven years and has two kids who hit the field every week, has continued to watch it grow and maintain its focus on providing an outlet for young players. “We’ve come a long way as our club since our humble beginnings in 1992,” Magin says. “As Narangba, surrounding suburbs and our amazing local community has blossomed and established itself, so has our football club. “Initially, it was started as something for kids to do on the weekend as part of the community and that has just evolved to where it is today. For myself and the rest of the committee, it’s definitely about the kids.

“It’s about giving the kids a sense of community and something different that’s not sitting in front of technology and keeping them out of trouble. It gives them that social outlet that gives them a sense of teamwork and mateship outside of places like school.” The Eagles pride themselves on welcoming boys, girls, men, women, young and old to play football at all levels. “We very much encourage everyone to get involved in the game and we’re always pushing for girls to come and join us as well,” Magin says. “We feature a girls team in almost every age group this year. It’s very exciting for women’s football because not every club can say this.” Magin recognises the achievements by the club come from more than just the players and their families, but also the many internal and external groups that help keep the Eagles thriving. “Our limited edition 30-year polo shirt wouldn’t have been possible without the many businesses who came on board to sponsor it,” Magin says. “We’re pretty stoked with how it turned out. We now have most of our members proudly wearing them to games all over the region and that’s great for our little club.” The Eagles have highlighted 2022 as a year of celebration dedicated to those who have supported and volunteered at the club through thick and thin; through the good times and through the tough times. In recognition of past club president roles, each non-competitive team from U6 to U12 has been named after a former president to acknowledge their efforts

June 2022

and contribution to the club. “There was a gentleman by the name of Ken Short, he was the first ever president for the football club and he has a number of teams bearing his name,” Magin says. “We’d also like to put together a dinner where we want to invite former presidents and committee members back to the club to acknowledge 30 years of football in Narangba.” While many players may have come and gone over the 30 years, it seems some have had the dedication to remain. We have a player named Thomas Lundsgaard that's been with the club almost since the beginning. He's now in his 50s and still playing," Magin says. "Thomas was honoured with a life membership last year. He's the epitome of a club man. He's got three children - two sons and a daughter - and they all play at the club too...and so does his wife! It's pretty cool and we think it's an awesome achievement." Even though 2022 is being regarded as a year of reflection for the Eagles, they’re also looking forward to many more good times across the next 30 years and beyond.

Rising Interest Rates - What Can You Do? Vanessa Bragdon VB Home Loans

After over eleven years of a downward trend in the RBA Cash Rate, we have finally seen an upward swing in rates.

While there is no crystal ball, the general prediction from economists is that we will see multiple cash rate increases in 2022 with a total increase of somewhere between 1.2 and 1.4 percentage point. Some, or all of which, lenders may pass on to borrowers. So, what can you do to protect yourself against Pay extra and build up cash reserves rising rates?

Some other things to consider

If your loan is variable, start paying the equivalent of a higher rate eg. 4% to 5%. Not Now is the time to review your home loan. only will this mitigate the stress of rates rising There are still some great variable rates in the it will build up a cash reserve that will serve as market so if your current lender won’t reduce a buffer. I your rate to stay competitive, it may be time to Consider fixing your loan switch lenders.

As rates rise, this is going to reduce borrowing capacity for anyone looking to purchase or refinance. A buffer, currently a minimum of 3%, is added on top of the lending rate to ensure loan serviceability can be met even if rates rise. While this a good thing, to protect borrowers from overcommitting, it will also mean lower maximum borrowing amounts.

FINANCE

Review your interest rate

Refinance your home loan There are several lenders offering cashback incentives to switch. While this shouldn’t be the only reason to move, it can certainly sweeten the deal especially if you can achieve a much lower rate. If you increase your loan term back to 30 years you can also reduce your minimum repayment which can ease stress in a changing rate market. If this strategy was employed, it would be recommended to keep up your existing repayments and timeline, with the knowledge that if things got tight your minimum repayment is affordable.

Unfortunately, fixed rates went on the rise around 8 months ago and are now significantly higher than a variable rate. However, if the repayments on the fixed rate feel comfortable, and reduces stress in a rising rate market, this can be an option to consider. You can fix all or part of your loan. Talk to a mortgage broker Mortgage broker’s are legally bound by Best Interest Duty and are working to serve their client’s best interests. Banks are not governed by the same legislation. A mortgage broker can walk you through your options and land on a suitable solution.

Even though rates are on the rise, it is still historically very low. Many homeowners remember rates at historical highs or certainly much higher than the rates we have been enjoying for many years. Managing rate rises and repayments is an inevitable part of home ownership, however most would agree the benefits of owning your home is well worth it.

Abstract Art Gabrielle Turnbull

Lately, my students at Art So Lively Academy have raised an interesting question that is often accompanied by some confusion, `What exactly do we mean by the term Abstract Art?`.

THE ARTS

Art So Lively

This question arose last week as we commenced a series of lessons exploring the idea of nonrepresentational or, what is sometimes referred to as, pure abstract art. We looked at how it differs from its cousins, abstract art and realism or representational art. There is a sliding and very wide range of differences from slightly to vastly, so let’s look at how the three categories can be better understood.

from realistic imagery, but technically, reality is always the starting point with it then being stylised, distorted, exaggerated, simplified and changed to varying degrees. Well-known abstract artists are Picasso, Matisse, O’Keefe and Van Gogh.

Firstly, the art terms `Representational’, ‘Figurative’ and ‘Realism` are interchangeable as all are based on imagery (people, objects, places or events) from our real world. In other words, they are easily recognisable and understandable to us. Famous artists in this category are Rembrandt, Da Vinci, Manet, Goya and Millet.

Thirdly, what to make of `Nonrepresentational’ art? This art form does not aim to depict anything recognisable from our world. Instead, the artist uses the essential elements of line, shape, value, form, texture, colour and space to express an idea, emotion, or other personal concept. The beauty of this somewhat challenging form is the freedom of interpretation each person has. However, this is the very aspect that bothers some viewers. HIlma af Klint, Helen Frankenthaler, Bridget Riley and Mark Rothko are just a few representing this group.

Now let’s look at `Abstract’ art which is the beginning of Modern art. Abstract art grew from the movements of Impressionism, Expressionism and Fauvism (to mention just a few) of the 1800s. With a dramatically changing world, artists became less interested in depicting life as it appeared. Expressing how their world felt was more important. Yes, Abstraction sees a departure

It is important to note that these artists painted very realistically at the beginning of their artistic lives. Interesting.

I have included three of our students' works for you to identify which category they originate from. See how you go.

Multiple Sclerosis and Exercise Multiple Sclerosis, often referred to as MS, is an autoimmune disease for which the cause is unknown. The Moreton All

Body Care Team

HEALTH

MS is characterised by areas of demyelination, or plaques, within the brain and spinal cord. Damage to these areas can be seen to cause a wide range of symptoms due to the slow/ interrupted transmission of nerve impulses. Symptoms may include cognitive and physical disability, temperature sensitivity, extreme fatigue and depression amongst others. Many MS symptoms are found to be reduced through physical activity. Whilst managing symptoms of MS, exercise is also a crucial tool in improving health and wellness. Inactivity opens one up to consequences such as poor fitness, poor strength and fatigue, whilst also increasing the risk of developing other chronic conditions such as heart disease and diabetes. Research shows that in addition to reducing the risk of developing other conditions, exercise improves outcomes for individuals with MS. Those with MS that engage in exercise are seen to have better cognition, better brain health, increased cardiovascular health and mobility. These individuals often have a greater quality of life as they experience less fatigue, depression, anxiety and pain. Individuals with MS are encouraged to engage in 30 minutes of moderate intensity

22

aerobic activity two days per week, whilst also performing strength training two days per week, working towards two sets of 10-15 repetitions. Balance and stretching exercises are also recommended on most days of the week. If an individual is just beginning with exercise it is recommended to work up to this volume over a month or so and to seek guidance from an exercise physiologist if needed. Aerobic Exercise: • •

Can be performed as a group or individually, on land or in water Walking is seen to be the #1 choice aerobic exercise by individuals with MS. Intensity can be measured by counting steps over a period of time, walking 100 steps in a minute is seen to be moderate intensity for persons with MS. When there is a risk of tripping/falls the use of exercise bikes and elliptical trainers is preferable to the use of a treadmill

Strength Training: • •

Can be performed at home or in a community centre or gym Strengthening exercises can be performed with resistance or machine weights, body weight, water or resistance bands and should involve the major muscle groups To minimise fatigue take frequent rest breaks and alternate muscle groups during training

June 2022

Stretching and Balance Exercises: • • •

Stretching helps to improve posture and flexibility, whilst also relieving muscle spasms and cramps Stretching can be performed using gravity or resistance bands Balance exercises can be performed by challenging standing posture or sitting

It is important that individuals have the right support when exercising. Research shows that learning about exercise, identifying barriers and working with others to overcome barriers will make you more successful in increasing your physical activity levels. Involving friends and family in your exercise journey is one way of doing this. You may also seek guidance from an accredited exercise physiologist who can help you identify and overcome barriers whilst developing an individualised exercise program that suits your needs whilst also being enjoyable.

VIEWPOINT: Attract Wildlife to Your Garden Immediately on moving to North Lakes five years ago we removed all of the exotic garden plants Lawrie Smith AM and progressively planted Landscape Architect new gardens of regional native trees, shrubs and groundcovers endemic to or suited to the local environment.

LANDSCAPE

Our residence abuts the Melaleuca Lakes environment reserve and the garden is rapidly becoming botanically integrated, and as well is providing a very colourful and attractive home garden. We are pleased to host countless birds, who throughout the year are attracted to the honey nectar dripping from the various native flowers, and feasting on the many small fruits produced on others. We love the antics of the solitary Blue Wren as he protects his harem of females from some of the larger more predatory birds. The symphony of the bird calls provides a sound scape which enriches our time in the garden far more than any other music could.

It’s intriguing to watch the friendly Water Dragons foraging for grubs and insects among the mulch and foliage. The occasional Carpet Python and Keelback snake are not all that welcome but are tolerated as part of the natural cycle of nature. Local residents walking past observe and comment on the unique native garden display and sometimes ask for advice and cuttings. Unfortunately there are very few residential gardens in our suburb or any other for that matter, who embrace Australia’s flora for planting in their garden.

"If you replace all those exotic species in your garden ...... with a collection of Australian plants that do provide .... for our native wildlife, you will be constantly rewarded ...." Be assured that if you replace all those exotic species in your garden that do not provide support for wildlife, and replace them with a collection of Australian plants that do provide habitat and food for our native wildlife, you will be constantly rewarded a thousand times over.

PARK OF THE MONTH Osprey House Environment Centre Take a picnic to Dohles Rocks foreshore and visit Osprey House to observe the rich bird and marine wildlife of the Pine River estuary as you stroll around the surrounding wheelchair friendly boardwalks, bird hides and viewing platforms, all perfect for bird watchers or nature enthusiasts. Inside the interesting building learn about the importance of wildlife habitat and their reliance on native plants for food. Osprey House has a tall specifically built ‘raptor pole’ equipped with television cameras to allow you to watch the resident Osprey’s nesting high above the trees at the end of the carpark outside the centre. It is fascinating to see the resident parent birds arranging twigs to reform the nest to prepare for this year’s eggs and hatchlings. This visit will help you to make the decision to ‘Plant an Aussie Plant Today!’ to help attract and sustain wildlife in your own garden.

You don’t need to remove every exotic, as it is possible to have a ‘multicultural’ garden that benefits everyone! Do you have a gardening question? Ask Lawrie! Email editor@featuremagazine.com.au

ANTIQUES

Murphy's Antiques & Restoration

24

No longer are people looking exclusively for furniture, glass and china produced before 1900. Now we are just as interested in discovering the antiques of the future. Technology and design have made a bigger and wider impact on how we live and work. With modern interiors, even in the older homes becoming more popular, many people don’t want to clutter their living space with heavy antique furniture. This is why the middle of the twentieth century has become so popular due to its minimalism and simplicity of design. The 1960s Scandinavian style furniture has become so popular that a large furniture store chain is now reproducing this furniture style.

This fashion trend has now also extended to vintage clothing and jewellery. We, the licenced dealers, have struggled with this fashionable trend. It is as if because we buy and sell 1960’s Scandinavian goods, we can’t call ourselves Antique Dealers, as these goods aren’t 100 years old. I have always had a cut off to the Art Deco period of the 1930s as Deco is almost 100 years old. Now that the antique dealers in north Queensland that I wholesale stock to started to request 1960s items, I have started to purchase this period furniture and items in estates etc. As a knock-on effect, due to this period’s popularity, I would say that arguably 50% of the furniture we restore in our restoration workshop

June 2022

is 1960s furniture. We have adapted as a French polisher and now do Scandinavian oil finishes, sanding sealer base with 10% gloss lacquer finishes on this furniture style. We also do the Hampton style restoration and two pack paint finishes – we now see ourselves as furniture refinishers rather than just French polishers. The good thing about the Scandinavian style furniture is that when we put it up on our website or Gumtree for sale – it sells in a few hours or a couple of days. The downside is that I’m now what my Dealer’s Licence States – “Second-Hand Dealer”. Do you have a question for Meade? Email us at editor@featuremagazine.com.au

I don’t know The Cryptic Critic whether Covid 19 has anything to do with it. Still, since that wretched disease reached our shores, a plethora of loud music, drunken argumentative parties and burn-outs on our suburban streets have almost become the norm.

Now Jane, a live-alone widow and a quietly spoken lady, approached the

Interrupting her, the noisy neighbour let forth a torrent of foul abuse and said, “If you don’t f..king well like it, you can always f..king move to a retirement village!” And to make matters worse, this barbarian of a neighbour had only recently moved into the neighbourhood, whereas Jane had lived in the friendly, peaceful community for the past thirty-odd years. In desperation, she spoke to the local police about the noise problem. They were sympathetic, saying she should record the noise and bring the recording to them. Now I’m supportive of our police force. The terrible increase in domestic violence cases, uncontrolled kids crime and increasing

deaths on our roads are contributing to an overstretched police force, who understandably may put `neighbourhood noise` at a lower priority level. But that’s not much help to Jane and the many others like her. But all is not lost. A recent police communiqué shows that they are aware of the problem and are addressing it. Should the police be alerted to excessive party noise, they will enter the premises without a warrant. On finding the complaint substantiated, they will issue the offending person with a noise abatement notice, resulting in a $200 fine! If you do report excessive neighbourhood noise, you can remain anonymous. The Police link can be used and is available on the Apple App Store or through Google Play.

Our Sporting Nation

AUSTRALIA HAS LONG been recognised as a sport focused nation. Our successful record on many of the world’s sporting fields is the envy of others, and the game of cricket is one of those. The recent passing of three great Australian cricketers who generously contributed to that success and the subsequent attention given to their passing is a testament to that. The nation rightly expressed its sorrow at their passing, with tributes ranging from state funerals, erection of statues and naming of sporting facilities being just three accolades given, thus ensuring that their names will be proudly remembered for decades to come.

OPINION

I have played representative rugby union and cricket and understand the importance of sport and the participation and the winning of a game on the emotional psyche of communities and the nation.

26

However, I find it somewhat puzzling that when an internationally acknowledged, award-winning artist passes, whether they be a renowned painter such as Brett Whitely or a Margaret Olley or a world-famous composer/singer like Peter Allen, author Colleen McCullough, or a great entertainer such as Bert Newton or a movie star like Heath Ledger, little, excepting media coverage is done to record their deeds for future generations. We as a nation do not rate highly on the world’s creative scale, which is more the pity as we wonder why our children seem to consistently follow the well-worn sporting track and little else. Is it not time for our governments to put a higher price on creativity and encourage us to tread more boldly down our now overgrown creative path? And in so doing, Australia can find its true place on the world’s international stages, in the world’s galleries and in ours and our children’s mindsets.
