St Anthony’s Primary School student Anne is determined that her future won’t be limited by her postcode. “It also helps them to operate in the communities they’re in. “Parents comment on how much they enjoy coming here. “In the past we were lucky to get two to three parents come to a meeting, now 40 come in and have a say on what they’d like to see at the school.” She said outsiders had a negative perception of Dandenong but she found quite the contrary. “It’s full of wonderful people with a multitude of skills and stories. “I work here and I love it - it’s vi-

brant and it’s exciting. “I think I’ve got the best job in the world.” At St Anthony’s there are hopes to send 120 year five and six students to Canberra to see democracy in action. It runs a book club with Dandenong Library, an early-intervention program with Monash Health and English language classes with AMES. Ms Hansen said the school had been offering cooking, computing and English language classes to its parents - many of them being new arrivals.

Picture: ANDY DREWITT The Scanlon Foundation will next year fund the schools as sites for community hubs to help settle newly arrived families. The schools are also hoping for further funds and programs from businesses, governments and philanthropic groups to help make this project happen. “We hope people will give not just financial support but support in any way they can,” Ms Hansen said. Details are at itsjustapostcode.com. au.

The school has forged a partnership with Dandenong Hospital. Its students filmed a documentary to demystify the services at the hospital’s childrens ward as well as conducted fund-raising. It has also partnered with RACV to provide driving lessons for its parents, a women-in-leadership program with Rowville Neighbourhood House as well as Medicare Local, United Way, AMES, Rotary and playgroups. “If we support the parents we know we’re also supporting our students.

TWO primary schools are at the forefront of changing Dandenong and Noble Park’s reputations for the better. It’s Just a Postcode is a project that counters the assumption that a student’s aspirations can be shaped or hindered by where they live. Under the project, Bev Hansen of Dandenong West Primary School and Marg Batt of St Anthony’s Catholic Primary School plan not just to make a difference for their schools but to whole suburbs. “Where you live doesn’t determine what your destiny is going to be,” Ms Hansen said. “Our families have high aspirations and we are determined to support those high aspirations. “We want our school to be the centre of the community. “People will see Dandenong West as a place to be involved, to meet and be social.” Ms Batt said the project was about putting out the “good-news stories” to the wider community. “It will hopefully bring people to invest in the area. Project leader and education consultant Adam Smith said a postcode was classified as the “most powerful determinant” of student success in such papers as the Gonski schools funding report. “We want to change that perception.” The project works on the idea of building ‘social capital’. The two principals came back from a UK study tour bristling with ideas on how to give their students and the wider community more opportunities. At Dandenong West Primary School, there are plans for a community mens shed to teach men to use power tools, paint and to hone other home-handy skills.

Gold gala for Dandenong conference ST Vincent de Paul Dandenong Conference will hold a Gold Gala ball on New Year’s Eve. Helping organise the ball is president of the Dandenong Region of St Vincent de Paul, Annmarie Lochery. Annmarie had the honour of being the first female president of the Dandenong Conference. Dedicated to the cause, Annmarie has now been elected regional president. Veronica Gislingham is the new president of the Dandenong Conference. The friends were both educated at St John Regional College, Dandenong, by the Presentation Sisters and De La Salle Brothers. “I was born and raised in Dandenong and I love the greater city’s community,” Annmarie said. “Both (St John) orders have a passion for helping the poor and empowering people to be their best.”

MY VOICE A MOMENT WITH

MARG STORK Annmarie is seeking information on the history of the St Vincent de Paul Dandenong Conference. “This year we celebrated 88 years of recorded history in Dandenong in assisting people in need with Bishop Vincent Luong and the parish priest of St Mary’s Church in Dandenong, Father Declan O’Brien.” Devoted to helping the community in which she was raised, Annmarie served on the board of Wellsprings for Women for more than 10 years. Wellsprings, which operates out of premises in Langhorne Street, Dandenong, has been highlighted in A Moment with

Marg many times, and, when I was working in Dandenong was one of my regular ports of call to keep readers informed of the many vital services the centre offers women of different cultures. The Gold Gala Ball will be held at The Grand, 2251 Princes Highway, Mulgrave, from 7.30pm until 1am. Enjoy an authentic Sri Lankan buffet and delicacies after midnight while dancing the night away to the rhythm of In2groove. At each table will be wine, beer and a bottle of premium Scotch whiskey. Tickets, which are $80, are available by phoning Annmarie on 0400 970 451, Rodney 0412 664 192 or Christopher 0409 144 875. The proceeds will be donated to St Vincent de Paul Dandenong Conference to fund volunteer work supplying food for those in need in the community.

LOOKING BACK 100 YEARS AGO 9 December 1913 Letter to the Editor SIR - I WAS very much surprised and disgusted at the greed shown by the Picture Show Co. announcing a show on Thursday night when they know that the Church of Christ are holding a fair in the Town Hall. I think the company are showing a great want of taste and consideration in their grab. While on the subject I would like the Shire council to explain their action in refusing 35 shillings which was offered for the hall for Saturday night and let it to the

Picture Show Co. for two pounds for two nights for only five shillings for an additional night. Surely this company must have a “friend at court” as the council could have had 35 shillings for Saturday and 20 shillings for Friday nights or two pound 15 shillings for the two nights, instead of two pounds at present, a loss on the two nights of 15 shillings per week. You know that councillors are “funny coves;” still I do not know of one who would make the same deal in their private business. I think the sooner the ratepayers get the present men out and more practical men in the

council the better it will be for the shire. Yours etc. ANTI-GREED 50 YEARS AGO 9 December 1963 Workers’ club may get golf course THE Dandenong Workers’ Social Club has taken an option on the land occupied by the Forest Hills Golf Course, off Wedge Street, including the clubhouse area. Workers’ club officials announced this yesterday. The club intends to retain the golf course, and the club’s buildings will be erected on the land not used for golf.

20 YEARS AGO 9 December 1993 Royal Visit A MEMBER of the royal family will visit Dandenong early next year Prince Michael of Kent will be in the city for the Commonwealth lifesaving championships at the Dandenong Oasis Swimming Centre. Life savers from more than 20 countries will converge on Dandenong for the titles on 19-20 January 1994.

A hunger for justice begins A DANDENONG North man is threatening a hunger strike at the Springvale council offices. George Timis says he has been bothered by loud neighbours for more than four years and Greater Dandenong Council “has done nothing to help me”. “I am going to start a hunger strike out the front of the council and I’m not going anywhere until they do something for me,” he said.

Officer bridges the multicultural gap By CASEY NEILL “FOOD for the soul� is how Sergeant Joey Herrech describes forging ties between Greater Dandenong’s multicultural community and police. “You’re empowering people that have had a really bad experience with police in previous times in their life,� he said. “You’re showing them that policing in this environment is one of advocacy.� Last Wednesday he was the inaugural Police and Community Multicultural Advisory Committee (PACMAC) Multicultural Award joint winner at the Multicultural Awards for Excellence. “It was a bit of a highlight,� he said. “When you do a lot of work in the community it’s not for the accolades, but it was really good fuel for the fire.� The awards acknowledged 77 people and 23 organisations that have actively supported cultural diversity and promoted community harmony. Sgt Herrech, from Narre Warren South, has been in the multicultural field for 12 of his 18 years as a police officer. “Every day you come back from work and there’s been a proud moment,� he said. “It’s breaking the stereotype and

Sgt Herrech has worked with vulnerable people overseas through policing and volunteer work, and returned with strategies to support the community and fellow police. But he was quick to shrug off praise for his dedication and efforts. “Anyone who works hard in any field will get recognised,� he said. There were more than 200 nominees for the awards. Among other local Meritorious Service to the Community recipients were Raja Dib and Jessiee Kaur Singh from Noble Park, Springvale’s Binh Hung Huynh and Neil Yip, Mohamed Shums Deen Mohamed from Dandenong North and THE-HE Vietnamese Language Centre in Springvale. A Service Delivery to Multicultural Victoria award for Language Education went to Jing Cheng from Springvale and Jewish Aid Australia, which has a Dandenong office, received one for Community Services for Sudanese Communities.

Salvos step in to transport court accused A MAN accused of several violent attacks was released on bail and transported in a private vehicle for a mental health assessment due to a police resources shortage. At a Dandenong Magistrates’ Court bail hearing on Monday 2 December, Paulo Alexander Martins faced charges of assault, threatening to kill his landlord with a brick and recklessly causing injury to his partner over three incidents this year. A Salvation Army officer in the public gallery and Martins’ partner volunteered to take Martins to Dandenong Hospital’s

emergency department for assessment. Magistrate Greg Connellan said the transport was not “ideal� security but granted Martins bail on the basis that he would be unable to access timely treatment in custody. “He does urgently need to be assessed as to his mental health status. (Transportation) won’t be done by Victoria Police due to the resources. “That’s not a criticism. That’s just the situation they face,� Mr Connellan said. “While this situation is not ideal, I’m satisfied that he has shown cause (for bail).�

Mr Connellan ordered Martins or his lawyer to report back within three hours whether he had been admitted to hospital or not. The court was told that on 6 November, Martins, then a resident at a Noble Park boarding house, allegedly placed a brick against his visiting landlord’s head and said: “I will kill you�. He was also accused of swearing at the landlord’s wife, smashing two of her car’s windows with the brick. He returned to the property and was re-arrested on 19 and 21 November for breaching a bail condition of not returning within

200 metres of the boarding house. Constable Alexander Branting, who attended the scene on the latter occasion, used capsicum spray to subdue Martins. “I became fearful of imminent assault,� Const Branting said. “The accused (later) said he was off his medication.� As he awaited his bail hearing, Martins “apparently had a physical confrontation in the cells with another prisoner�. Martins is also facing charges of assault and recklessly causing injury to his partner in March. As a condition of his earlier bail, he

Police Christmas credit card warning A SHOPPING spree using stolen credit cards has prompted a festive season warning from police. Thieves entered a home in Corrigan Road, Noble Park, between midnight and 6am on Saturday 2 November while a

family slept. They took a mobile phone, laptop computer, wallet and handbag then fled undiscovered. Later that afternoon a man and a woman used the victims’ credit cards to buy mobile phones, phone credit, clothing,

sports equipment, groceries and alcohol at Dandenong Plaza. Detective Senior Constable Lee-Anne Clinton said police arrested the pair. She urged shoppers to report and cancel missing credit cards and take all valuables from vehicles.

GREATER Dandenong business, manufacturing, health and education representatives look set to return to China for an investment fair next September. Councillors were set to approve the trip to the municipality’s sister city of 17 years, Xuzhou, at their meeting last night (Monday) and seek expressions of interest in joining the delegation. Led by the city’s business group manager Paul Kearsley, the group will seek capital and private investment in Greater Dandenong and assess implications and opportunities from the coming ‘Asian Century’, which will see unprecedented trade between Australia and Asia.

Const Branting said boarding house residents were “scared� of Martins, and Martins’ partner was “reluctant to have him� at her home. “She was of the strong belief that the accused has mental health issues and doesn’t want him at the house,� he said. “He poses an unacceptable risk to the community. He shows blatant disregard for authority.� Martins’ defence lawyer said the boarding house was his only place of residence and the site of his belongings.

AN UNLICENSED rider who took an unregistered off-road motorbike for a joyriding circuit of Dandenong railway station’s bus terminal and then refused to submit to a blood-alcohol test will be unable to ride again for two years. Hapimana Kohu faced his fate in Dandenong Magistrates’ Court on Monday wearing a T-shirt, Hawaiian shorts and thongs and his hair tied into a plaited, tinted rat-tail. The court was told Kohu, who claimed to have been dropping off his cousin, was captured by the station’s Protective Services Officers about 10.20pm on 21 February. Police prosecutor Jodi Kellow said Kohu’s bike was unregistered and without number plates. Kohu and his passenger were without helmets, and Kohu had never had a licence for any type of vehicle. She said Kohu refused requests by Protective Services Officers to stop riding through the station’s bus terminal. After another lap of Foster Street and the car park, Kohu was captured by the PSOs as he slowed his bike to mount a gutter. Police said they detected alcohol on Kohu’s breath but Kohu refused a request to accompany the officers to Dandenong police station for a blood-alcohol test. Magistrate Tom Hassard said Kohu had made “a very bad decision�, facing a “litany of charges� and a minimum two-year licence disqualification for refusing the blood-alcohol test. “How is that going to affect you?� Mr Hassard said. “Not too sure at the moment,� said Kohu - who is employed full-time at a meat works. He was convicted, fined $1000 and disqualified from driving a vehicle for two years. - CAMERON LUCADOU-WELLS

Future fracking

Thumbs Up

I WAS reading the recent issue of the Time Magazine (25 November issue) and in the lead feature of the 25 Best Inventions of the Year, noticed an invention that has the potential to completely negate the current arguments against fracking in Victoria. Canadian company, GasFrac, uses gelled liquid petroleum rather than water to frack wells. The gel evaporates underground, eliminating the risk of contamination and the need for water. Upon further research on the company website, I noticed that it was claimed that the gelled liquid petroleum was also recovered following the process. With regard to providing all relevant options regarding the fracking process, I wonder why this development hasn’t been mentioned to date - seems to me to provide a solution that has the potential to satisfy all parties. Gary Saunders, Dandenong North.

TO Dandenong Club for sharing $20,000 in donations between five different charities.

Remembering God IN REFERENCE to Christmas decorations in the City of Greater Dandenong, I would like to suggest the following. That representatives of the major Christian churches in the City of Greater Dandenong (Catholic, Anglican, Uniting etc) be included in the deliberations for the city’s Christmas decorations for 2014 and onward. Australia is a Christian country and Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. However, there is a growing tendency to overlook or sideline the real meaning of Christmas. There was a time some years ago when the nativity scene was displayed outside the Town Hall in Dandenong. It is time for the City of Greater Dandenong to return to acknowledging what Christmas is all about. Christ came for everyone. His message is basically love, humility, compassion, joy and hope. This is what we are celebrating and as a Christian country we have a duty to acknowledge it. Peter Hartin, Dandenong.

Professionally, she runs rings around any of the younger journos with her astounding memory for names and facts, and her ability to talk to people and have them open up to her. Working alongside Marg for most of my 14 years with the Journal was a time I will always cherish. Terri Marley: What a Dandenong legend she has been, so knowledgeable

and connected to the people and her community. Well done. Michelle Sabau: (Writing about history) is important and also to encourage us to remember the past. Good on her.

SOCIALLY SPEAKING Pet responsibility THERE is no reason at all that a pet owner shouldn’t be required to desex their animal. If you can afford to own a pet, you can afford the one off cost of desexing. Council should similarly be cracking down on those that don’t register their pets. It is a responsibility you take on that doesn’t seem to be taken seriously. It isn’t expensive in the overall scheme of pet ownership. Have they visited a vet recently? Or do they not take responsibility for their animal welfare either? What is wrong with expecting people to take responsibility? Kim Reid, via web.

THOUSANDS of dollars worth of tools and equipment have been stolen from a Doveton business. At about 8pm on Sunday 17 November, two people driving a darkcoloured ute broke into a factory on Princes Highway.

CONSTRUCTION workers in orange vests are regarded as heroes when they walk into Springvale Park Special Developmental School. And for good reason. Up to 85 workers on the Springvale level crossing removal project each chipped in funds at their weekly Saturday barbecues on-site, saving up $1600 for play equipment for the school - an inflatable rolling cage, ten-pin bowling set and a giant beach ball. Students had been taking a keen

A COUPLE had a rocky start to married life thanks to a brush with a booze bus in Dandenong North. Police intercepted a learner driver, 34, with his passenger and new wife, 33, at a random breath test site on the Monash Freeway about 10.30am on Sunday 1 December. The couple had tied the knot the previous day and spent the night celebrating at their reception. Both returned positive preliminary breath tests - the man 0.108 and his wife 0.07. Police issued an infringement notice to the learner and immediately suspended his permit. The woman will face court for drink driving offences. Greater Dandenong Highway Patrol Senior Constable Michael Hannie said the incident was a warning to other drivers who consume alcohol the night before driving. “The only thing that removes alcohol from your system is time,” he said. “People who have had a big night and decide to wake up in the morning and get behind the wheel need to understand that they may still be over the limit.”

WHAT’S going on under the surface at Springvale railway station is set to make a big difference for the suburb above ground. Peter Fraser, general manager of the Springvale level crossing removal project, says work is at the half-way mark. The project team will be going “flat out” to have the $156 million project done by September 2014. As the Journal’s exclusive pictures of inside the project show, cavernous trenches up to 4.6 metres deep are being dug east and west of Springvale Road. There is still another metre yet to delve into the groundwater table, requiring drainage then sealing by concrete base slabs. These clay canyons will link into a 1.4-kilometre stretch bearing a premium railway station and railway trucks tunneling under the road. Mr Fraser said the elimination of boom gates could be a boom-time for the precinct north of the tracks. Easier links to Springvale’s southern shopping district will spell more development opportunities in the sparsely-occupied north.

Council won’t force desex By CAMERON LUCADOU-WELLS GREATER Dandenong Council will not follow the lead of other councils for mandatory desexing of pet cats and dogs due to a lack of “conclusive” evidence. Councillor Roz Blades said she was “a bit surprised” by the report’s findings, which stated there was no “scientificallybased research” the practice reduced numbers of euthanased unwanted animals in Victoria. It also found the subsequent extra registration cost - up to $64 for dogs and $43 for cats could be an “unreasonable burden” on low-income residents. It could lead to less pet registrations and perversely more euthanasia of lost pets, the report stated. Cr Blades was concerned by the high euthanasia rates for impounded cats, noting many responsible cat-owners who registered their pets also kept them in at night. In Greater Dandenong, more than 84 per cent of impounded cats are euthanased - about 75

per cent of those impounds are feral. About 21 per cent of impounded dogs are put down. “(Cats) can give birth almost as a kitten, from six months old,” Cr Blades said. “We really need a desex program. I think a 12-month review (of the report) is absolutely necessary.” The council report found in some of the state’s 16 ‘compulsory desexing’ councils, cat impoundments decreased by up to 52 per cent. However, one of the surveyed councils reported an increase by the same rate. Councillor Sean O’Reilly said the council won’t be “deploying resources at a hunch” but using evidence. Cr Blades responded: “The paperwork is not a hunch. What I said was based on the RSPCA’s position”. Mandatory desexing is supported by the RSPCA, Cat Protection Society and Animals Australia but opposed by the Australian Veterinary Association. Helen Cocks, animal services executive manager of RSPCA Victoria, said compulsory desex-

ing for pet dogs and cats prevented unwanted breeding, reduced unwanted animals and increased an animal’s long-term health. She said many of the 160,000 animals taken in by the RSPCA nationally each year were due to unplanned breeding. “The RSPCA Victoria recommends that puppies and kittens are desexed prior to sale from breeders or pet shops to prevent any unintended litters. “Research shows that desexed animals can actually live for longer as they are generally less likely to get diseases and certain illnesses.” Desexing also reduced behaviour problems such as roaming and aggression in males, and mating behaviour and false pregnancy in females, she said. The Australian Veterinary Association told the council that “owner education is the most effective approach to encouraging owners to have their pets desexed”. The association however supported the desexing of animals being rehomed from animal shelters.

Building a bridge to unity THE Bridge is the new name for Dandenong-based disability service provider Options Victoria. It officially unveiled the change at Drum Theatre in Dandenong on 3 December, coinciding with International Day of People with Disability.

CEO Phillip Toovey said the not-for-profit needed to be ready for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). “We wanted a name that united all of the different parts of our organisation together, solidifying who we are and

helping us to tell the story of what we do,” he said. The Bridge works with businesses and the community to create opportunities for people to achieve their goals, and has done since its birth in Noble Park more than 40 years ago.

Peace on Earth, goodwill towards men. Merry Christmas or happy Christmas? Over the years Christmas greetings have diminished to a mere ‘feel good’ sentiment that neither expresses the true meaning or reason behind the profound Christmas message. Perhaps a more appropriate greeting that reflects this wonderful occasion could be ‘joyous Christmas’. Joy because ‘unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given’ (Is 9:6). Let me explain. 3 Then God said, “Let there be light” (Gen 1:3)… Please note that God spoke words and the words became reality. Jesus is called ‘the Word’ (John 1:1, 12) …. God’s Word became flesh and dwelt among us as the only begotten Son of the Father. When Adam was created in the image of God, in the garden of Eden, he had everything he needed, he was given the world as his garden and he had dominion over all things. The one thing he could not do was to eat of the tree of ‘the knowledge of good and evil’. However, he disobeyed God, obeyed the devil and lost his intimate relationship with his Creator. After that, all of mankind was born in Adam’s image (Gen 5:3) subject to sin and death and doing what they thought was right in their own opinion. It was God’s plan from the foundation of the world to make a way for Mankind to enjoy the riches of heaven with His creation, but now all seemed lost …. Man had fallen to a state of selfishness and rebellion against a loving, merciful and gracious God. Being also, a God of justice, sin had to be punished, and that punishment was eternal separation from God in Hell, a place of torment and horror, suffering the consequences of His own actions. Mankind, because of Adam, was destined to condemnation. But all was not lost. God, in His wisdom, grace, love and mercy had a way to punish our sin and yet provide us with a way of escape. In order to reverse Adam’s transgression, a member of the human race who was without sin needed to be found, but who could be born without inheriting the sin of Adam? The only one righteous enough or able to pay for our sin was God Himself. Enter Jesus, Emmanuel (God with us) …. Born of a virgin (avoiding the Adamic nature), overshadowed by the Holy Spirit (God Himself). Adam was born into perfection, Jesus was born in adverse conditions …. Adam yielded to temptation, Jesus fully resisted and lived a life totally committed to His Father in heaven and at the appointed time, offered Himself up as a sacrifice for all the selfishness, pride and sins of Mankind ….. 16

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. 18“He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. [John 3:16ff]

Unto us a child is born (Jesus … fully man) unto us a Son is given (the Christ … fully God). Christmas … gathering in the name of Christ, the reason for much rejoicing and celebration, Mankind reconciled to a loving, holy and righteous God.

This is why Christians celebrate Christmas.

School shortfall strikes By CASEY NEILL

Fund cut call A CHRISTIAN leader has taken aim at Australia’s oldest interfaith network, calling on the council to strip the organisation of funding. David Owen, a pastor at Noble Park Christian Church, says Interfaith Network of Greater Dandenong receives “a lot of kudos as a very symbolic group but I don’t see that they actually do anything in the community”. “They also receive considerable support and funding from the council.” He said the Christian community, on the other hand, was little recognised by the council. “If Interfaith wants to keep going, they shouldn’t expect the council to fund them.” Mr Owen said council money was better spent going to community groups, including any

religious group, which provided community help including the pressing asylum seeker issue. He is part of the Christianbased Multi-Ethnic Support Network which helps about 170 asylum seekers to “learn English and to assimilate” in classes in Dandenong, Noble Park and Doveton four days a week. In 2013-14 the Interfaith Network has been allocated $15,500 from the council for organisational support and its annual gathering in October. This year, St James Anglican Church received $8615 for 150th anniversary celebrations, the Dandenong Eid Festival $5000 and African church groups got smaller grants. Greater Dandenong community services director Mark Doubleday said the council had a “long term partnership” with the network. He said the encouragement

of intercultural and interfaith communication was a “key strategic action” of the council’s draft wellbeing plan 2013/17. Mr Owen, who recently criticised Greater Dandenong’s Christmas celebrations, is a member of Dandenong Ministers’ Fellowship and a Christian organisation called Momentum. Interfaith member Helen Heath said the network was about what was common between people and faiths. In response to Mr Owen’s views that faiths should be “side by side”, she said “people can’t help being together as a community”. “We shop together, we work together and go to school together. We come together whether we like it or not.” The network holds regular tours of places-of-worship to promote “co-operation and harmony” between faiths.

A LACK of primary school places could force families to leave Keysborough. There was talk of a new primary school being in the works when Megan Bergic built in the area nine years ago, including “legal documents” showing the proposed site. “It all seemed very official,” she said. But her daughter is starting Prep next year and there’s no new school in sight. “There’s obviously two primary schools in Keysborough but they are a reasonable distance away from us,” Ms Bergic said. “The closest one to us is three and a half kilometres. “There’s a high demand for it (another school).” The Bergic family could pack up and leave over the issue.

offered to people who lived outside of their zone, but there wouldn’t have been many places,” she said. “There are schools like Kingswood in Dingley and St Marks that we actually can’t get into. Councillor Matthew Kirwan told a council meeting in July that Keysborough residents were calling for new primary and secondary schools to meet the suburb’s growing population. An Education Department spokesman said the department was aware of the increased population projections in the Keysborough area and had identified the need to plan for a site in this area. Does Keysborough need another primary school? Email journal@ starnewsgroup.com.au or share your thoughts on www.facebook.com/ DandenongJournal.

“We’ve considered moving,” she said. “We’ve attended open for inspections at Patterson Lakes, given that they have a great government school within walking distance of most of the houses. “The area has grown to such a point and there’s still really no progression towards putting a school in.” She said many young families called the area home, and the population had grown significantly in the past 10 years. “The kindergarten and the day care my children attend are fully booked,” she said. Ms Bergic’s son will head to school in two years, and her daughter will be at Dingley Primary next year after missing out on a place at Kingswood Primary School in Dingley Village. “The majority of the places went to Dingley residents, and then the spaces left over were

ASYLUM seekers are cooking up a storm in Dandenong each week. Men, women and children, mostly from Afghan, Iranian and Tamil backgrounds, come together at support centre Cornerstone every Monday and Thursday to create dishes for lunch, play pool or table tennis, or practise their English skills with volunteers. Dandenong Neighbourhood House runs Cooking With Diversity with help from funding from South East Melbourne

Medicare Local (SEMML). Its aim is to engage refugees and asylum seekers in Dandenong who are unable to work and are looking for activities to fill their daily routine, to reduce isolation and provide them with purpose. Dandenong Neighbourhood House chef Sharon Ramsay said the program was fast becoming a way for many people to socialise and share experiences and cultures. “I am learning from the asylum seekers each week about how they prepare food in their countries and they are all keen

to learn new things from me also,” she said. Cooking With Diversity teaches asylum seekers to cook cheap, healthy meals that are suitable for their weekly government allowance. Cornerstone is on the corner of Mason and Walker streets in Dandenong. The classes run from 9.30am to 2.30pm Mondays and Thursdays. Call Dandenong Neighbourhood House, 34 King Street, Dandenong, on 9792 5298 to get involved. 1110966-PB50-13

The idea came from a study trip chief executive Phil HayesBrown took across the United States last year. “I met with Trinity management and we talked about other ideas, how we could progress the relationship,” he said. “You often hear about schools doing international trips, but you don’t often hear about it in the context of a disability service. “My troops all agreed that

it sounded brilliant so we then set about choosing the Wallara service user.” Brent Chadwick was the lucky winner, and Wallara selected support coach Matt Ball to accompany him. “He’s someone that we felt was a future leader for our service and would really benefit from this international experience,” Mr Hayes-Brown said. “It was all funded by our Wish Foundation, which we started in 2011 to enable us to grant wishes for service users outside the scope of basic support needs.” Their adventure lasted 10 days and included a visit to Disneyland.

“The disability services go about their work in very different ways around the world,” Mr Hayes-Brown said. “But they’re all trying to connect to the community somehow. “Matt’s come back brimming with ideas about how Wallara can build on our progress.” Mr Hayes-Brown said Brent blossomed on the trip. “The first couple of days he was a little quiet but he just got more and more confident and both of them came back really buzzing,” he said. Wallara will return Trinity’s hospitality next year and is already planning to send another contingent overseas in 2015.

IT’S NONE OF OUR BUSINESS BUT… A SAUSAGE sizzle with mos on the menu raked in more than $500 for the Movember movement. The Maurice Blackburn barbecue in Foster Street brought the office’s fund-raising for the cause to $1634. Male staff were sporting a month of growth on their upper lips, while their female colleagues donned faux moustaches to show their support. DANDENONG residents raised $22,039 through this year’s McHappy Day. The cash will be donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) to expand its programs and help seriously ill children and

their families. Community volunteers played a big role on the day, with fire brigades, police and business people giving up time to help collect donations or provide items to be raffled. “THE only time it was dangerous was when I lost traction” was the comment to police investigators from a P-plater who wrote off his turbo-powered car. He lost his licence after the crash, where he careered off the road during an afternoon burnout session in an Endeavour Hills residential street. In Dandenong Magistrates’ Court last week he was handed a conviction and $1000

fine and disqualified from driving for eight months. RUMOURS of the ham sandwich’s death in Dandenong primary schools appear to have been greatly exaggerated. The Journal heard about a ban on the lunchtime favourite amid fears of lunchboxswapping between ham-free Muslim students and their classmates. But a couple of phone calls found adamant assertions that this was not the case. Do you have an example of political correctness gone mad? Email journal@ starnewsgroup.com.au.

THE hard part for many victims of discrimination is getting justice, says Victoria Legal Aid equality law program manager Melanie Schleiger. Ms Schleiger is part of a discrimination law roadshow which will be in Dandenong tomorrow (Tuesday). Ms Schleiger said the many people in Greater Dandenong who “sit on the edge of mainstream society” or in minority groups were most likely to be discriminated. “It’s been found that people who experience disadvantage are more likely to experience discrimination but they are also the ones less likely to ask for legal help. ‘‘We’re encouraging people to get in touch with us when they suffer discrimination. “Victoria Legal Aid has significant expertise in this area and can put people on the right track.’’ About 17 per cent of VLA’s “equality law” clients are from southeast municipalities including Greater Dandenong, Casey and Frankston.

VLA recently helped a young man who used a wheelchair. His mother carried him up to his second-floor apartment because the building’s owners corporation refused to install a lift. During an Australian Human Rights Commission mediation, he detailed his social isolation caused by not being able to access his home to the corporation members. While no lift was installed, the members underwent anti-discrimination training and wrote letters to seek further guidance. The man described the experience as “life-changing”. People with disabilities make the most inquiries. Complaints include employers failing to install large-print programs on computers or people being unable to access public and private buildings. The workshop is on 10 December from 3pm to 4.30pm at Dandenong Senior Citizens Centre, 10 Langhorne Street, Dandenong.

Awards FOR EXCELLENCE 2013

MASTERPLANNED DEVELOPMENT

winner

MARRIOTT WATERS VILLAWOOD PROPERTIES AND MARRIOTT FAMILY CREATING a genuine sense of community and place is the idea behind the Marriott Waters development in Lyndhurst. The joint venture between the Marriott Family and Villawood Properties is the winner in the UDIA Masterplanned Development category. The partnership has taken what was a flood prone problem site and a run of the mill development plan and transformed it into an innovative masterplanned design with interconnecting wetlands. Marriott Waters is now a highly sought-

after community, with many different housing choices for residents. The sustainable development includes 27 hectares of wetlands and parklands, recycled water as well as access to transport, education, fibre optic network, sporting facilities, retail outlets and a residents’ club. The site is located in a regional ‘low spot’ with a significant external catchment from the north, east and south. Creatively designed with extensive wetlands, there is a network of walking and cycling paths, playgrounds, picnic and barbecue facilities, unique public art

and sculptures, the exclusive residents’ only Club Marriott and the new Marriott Waters Shopping Centre. The design focused on achieving a network of roads, footpaths and shared paths to provide residents and visitors with safe, attractive and well-connected roads and paths linking the key elements of the estate. The vision for Marriott Waters was for high quality contemporary house designs and the design of the shopping centre precinct with its main street theory, complements the open space created by the wetlands.

RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT OF MORE THAN 250 LOTS

winner

MITCHELL’S RUN DACLAND PTY LTD MITCHELL’S Run is a development which successfully integrates with the natural landscape surrounding it. The site in Doreen is the worthy winner of the Residential Development- more than 250 lots category. The motto of ‘A Real Sense of Place’ perfectly describes the new community, which is characterised by picturesque views and informal parkland. From the entrance to the development, among parkland and river red gums, it is clear the focus of Mitchell’s Run is to establish an informal residential development with a focus on nature. Aboriginal scar trees, creek reserve, un-

dulating topography and views to the ranges have been retained in the development, allowing the surrounding landscape to provide the character of the estate. The developer, Dacland, has ensured that no residential lot is more than 300 metres from any number of the estate’s parks and open spaces and has been designed to link with neighbouring estates. Mitchell’s Run is pedestrian friendly from the front entrance to the network of quiet street and parks, and linkages are proposed with future developments to the north and south. A diverse mix of lot sizes (ranging from

30 DANDENONG JOURNAL Monday, 9 December, 2013

300 square metres to 2500 square metres) attracts a range of home buyers and encourages a wide range of building styles. Each home must meet a 5-star energy rating as standard from the commencement of Mitchell’s Run. The architectural styles are reflected in the objectives of the Mitchell’s Run Design Guidelines, focusing on diversity of materials and building styles. The estate is centrally located and is a key link for several north-south collector roads and public transport links for Doreen and surrounding suburbs. Connecting people and communities DJ

Awards FOR EXCELLENCE 2013

RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT 250 LOTS OR FEWER

commendation

OAKTREE RISE BERNLY INVESTMENTS PTY LTD OAKTREE Rise estate is a unique offering in the property market, providing home buyers with the opportunity to build sustainable homes at the centre of an established rural township. Set in the picturesque suburb of Narre Warren North, the estate consists of 149 elevated residential lots, a boutique retail strip and community hub constructed astride t he restored Troups Creek and new Central Park. The estate also provides local retail, active recreation opportunities and sustainable transport options servicing not only new residents, but the greater community of Narre Warren North.

HIGH DENSITY

Prior to the estate’s development, there was no clearly defined town centre in Narre Warren North. The development was instrumental in the realisation of local planning policy set out in the Narre Warren North Township Strategy. It is these aspects and many others that have seen the estate awarded commendation in the ‘residential development 250 lots or fewer’ category. The estate was designed with a key aim of blending the development into the existing township of Narre Warren North, while preserving and enhancing the existing feel. During the planning process, community

consultation was held with local residents, council and the developers. The feedback from the consultation process helped inform the overall design of the subdivision, gained community buy-in to the layout of Central Park and shaped the successful relocation of the heritage oak trees, from which the site gets its name, along the Avenue of Honour. In recent years, Narre Warren has experienced strong population growth across all markets and Oaktree Rise has been well received, with a waiting list for future releases.

WATERVIEW AND THE EDGE APARTMENTS

FIFTY ALBERT HAMTON FIFTY Albert’s unique design echoes the eclectic nature of the South Melbourne skyline. The High Density Development category joint winner is a 30-storey, mixed-use development which offers its residents a luxurious lifestyle in one of Melbourne’s most prestigious South Melbourne locations. Fifty Albert is a mixed-use development comprising 282 residential apartments, which range in size from 50.5sqm to 164.5sqm. This includes 84 one-bedroom apartments, 190 two-bedroom apartments and eight three-bedroom apartments - with two of the latter being double-storey. Fifty Albert’s apartments all feature luxury fit32 DANDENONG JOURNAL Monday, 9 December, 2013

VIEW APARTMENTS PTY LTD tings including stainless steel appliances and designer European appliances in the bathrooms. The kitchen consists of timber veneer with stone benchtops and splashbacks, while all apartment robes feature a grey mirror finish. Hamton Property Group, the developer, is focused on selecting great inner-city locations in Melbourne, and Fifty Albert is no exception. The building is located perfectly on the eastern entry to Albert Road from St Kilda Road, one of Melbourne’s most characteristic urban boulevards, within a rich and vibrant precinct.

WATERVIEW and The Edge Apartments defied all odds to be named joint winner of the High Density section of the annual UDIA awards, despite the initial opposition it faced. These apartments achieve a balance between density and liveability and capture both the city and water views. Each building entrance offers an expansive and well-decorated lobby area which creates an ideal first impression and adds to the comfort and liveability of these apartments. Throughout the construction of the apartments, developers gave huge consideration to the value of views from the towers. The layout and form strongly engage views such as Harbour

Park, Edgewater Lake and Jack’s Wood. It is conveniently located only a short walk to many Maribyrnong amenities. The site enjoys excellent pedestrian and cycling accessibility, with easy access between ’the apartments’ and key points of interest along Edgewater Boulevard. Extensive links along the Maribyrnong River are also a major feature of these apartments, including paths to Pipemakers Park and Highpoint Shopping Centre. Connections to the Federation Trail are located less than 100 metres down the road with a high quality bicycle track also close by. Connecting people and communities DJ


Awards FOR EXCELLENCE 2013 HIGH DENSITY

commendations

STRATEGICALLY located and wellestablished in the heart of the Melbourne CBD, Yarra Point apartments have been recognised for their excellence with a commendation award for High Density. Located on a 5200 square metre site, Yarra Point houses a diverse mix of bedroom dwellings and has sealed its place as one of Melbourne’s most elite waterfront communities. Following an eight-year break, Mirvac re-entered Melbourne’s apartment market with a bang when it developed Yarra Point apartments. The towers are now home to almost 2000 residents and in addition to its convenient location and unforgettable views of the city, the towers boast extra privileges such as a residents lounge, business centre, gym and herb and vegetable garden. Yarra Point is well connected to various popular precincts throughout the city, including South Wharf, South Gate and the East side of the Crown Entertainment complex. Throughout the design process of Yarra Point, a number of components were considered such as tower form, urban context and building footprint.

AVENUE Projects has touted 38 Camberwell Road as its benchmark marketing tool since its completion in May 2013, and not without reason. The building debuted on the market in 2011 and was sold to a mix of owner-occupiers and investors, with over 70 per cent of the apartments sold prior to construction in early 2012. The Hawthorn East development is situated on a prominent corner between Camberwell Junction and the vibrant shopping centres of Glenferrie and Auburn Road and offers 53 apartments over five levels. Each apartment enjoys high quality finishes, expansive indoor and outdoor living spaces and an envied location. The design also includes basement car parking for all units to minimise the impact of parking on the site plan, with access via Auburn Grove rather than the busy Camberwell Road thoroughfare. Avenue Projects has also integrated disabled access into the building’s design while also using architectural variation to break down the length of the building in both streetscapes. In addition, the development has enhanced the public realm through maintaining the alignment of the Auburn Grove footpath and retaining the existing trees adjacent to the site.

Awards FOR EXCELLENCE 2013 MEDIUM DENSITY

winner

BANBURY Village is an exciting new chapter in the remarkable history of Footscray. Property developer Cedar Woods has exceeded the local community’s and authorities’ expectations, in creating a vibrant village that is one with the surrounding community. The site was formerly used by the Olympic Tyre and Rubber Company and subsequently, South Pacific Tyres as its head office and factory, and presented an opportunity to deliver on state and local planning urban consolidation objectives - leading to the top prize in the Medium Density category, and a commendation for Urban Renewal. Banbury Village has established itself as the premier residential address in the inner west and has also been recognised by the former Department of Planning and Community Development as a notable example of industrial design heritage conversion. It features a major park that is unparalleled in the inner west, and key urban design principles include rear loaded dwellings on major thoroughfares to improve streetscapes, walk-ability and parking; strong design elements; and way-finding signage at key decision points.

A 59-UNIT apartment and townhouse project at 205 Gipps Street Abbotsford that blends social and private housing has been hailed a resounding success by tenants and owners. Using a co-operative housing model, not-for-profit developer Common Equity Housing Limited invests profits from the sale of the project’s 34 private apartments to ensure its 25 social housing apartments are affordable to low-income tenants. The result is five storeys of high-quality apartments in three neighbouring buildings - the penthouse storeys tastefully set back behind a reinforced heritage facade of the former boot factory/ warehouse. Deciduous trees in the complex’s landscaped internal courtyard shade the apartments in summer and allow more natural light in winter. At least half of the social housing dwellings are made available to people on the public housing waiting list. Six disability apartments were bought by the Transport Accident Commission and Summer Foundation. The rent is linked to income; residents pays no more than 25 per cent of their pension/income on rent, or more than 75 per cent of the market rate

ISLINGTON SILOS BLUE EARTH GROUP ISLINGTON Silos, a residential conversion of the former James Hood Malthouse and associated silos, in Collingwood’s iconic Islington Street has won the Urban Renewal award for 2013. The complex is protected by a Heritage Overlay in the Yarra Planning Scheme, and the statement of significance for the buildings attributes their historical value to their function and age, rather than aesthetic or architectural value. The Silos offer 21 three-bedroom apartments over 11 storeys. At ground level is a gymnasium and an apartment with a large terrace. Each of the 10 levels above provides two apartments separated by the central lift core. Two impressive glass penthouses are perched 34 DANDENONG JOURNAL Monday, 9 December, 2013

at the ‘crown’ of the silos, creating the illusion of floating forms. The soft curves of the building feature large glass walls, capturing stunning views and lending an ethereal juxtaposition. The spacious floor plans allow for generous airflow and an enviable 360 degrees vantage, ensuring apartments are filled with constant stream of natural light. Although not within an activity centre this site is very close to significant concentrations of commercial, recreation and entertainment facilities along Victoria Parade, Hoddle Street, Brunswick Street and other strip centres. It is also very convenient to a variety of transport routes, schools and community facilities.

commendation

BANBURY VILLAGE CEDAR WOODS PROPERTIES LTD DEVELOPER Cedar Woods had a responsibility to ensure the values and features of one of the western suburb’s best urban renewal sites were integrated into the final design and benefited the local community. Banbury Village, Footscray, integrates seamlessly with the surrounding area, while also delivering a variety of housing to meet market expectations. To achieve this, Cedar Woods had to deal with, and manage a host of issues including: a harsh interface on three sides; the condition of the heritage buildings and the extent of the hazardous materials to be dealt with; and a range of buyer profiles and the specific needs of an

eclectic community. The feedback Cedar Woods has had from its customers has been overwhelmingly positive, leading to many referral and repeat sales. The developer believes this is of enormous benefit in the long-run with referral sales, positive local council and government relationships, a high level of staff satisfaction through taking pride in their work and – of course – an enhanced corporate reputation. All of this has helped establish Banbury Village as the premier residential address in Melbourne’s inner-west. Connecting people and communities DJ

JUDGES AWARD

winner

HIGHETT MIXED USE DEVELOPMENT, WOLWORTHS (FABCOT PTY LTD)

DANDENONG LOGIS has transformed a contaminated, disused site into an environmental showpiece. The 154-hectare industrial business park has received this year’s Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA) Environmental Excellence award. The Dandenong Treatment Plant in Dandenong South closed in 1996, leaving behind highly-contaminated soil. In November 2005, the State Government announced a $150 million, four-year land reclamation project to transform the 180 hectares into a bustling commercial and residential hub. The first land at LOGIS South, to the south of Greens Road, was released in 2009 and LOGIS North land, between Dandenong Bypass and Greens Road, was first released in 2011. There’s a regional wetland for storm-

water treatment, rainwater tanks, native plants and mature trees to promote birdlife and wildlife access to Dandenong Creek, Class A recycled water to every lot, solar hot water and natural ventilation, and mulch made from recycled shipping pallets. There are more than 20 hectares of open space for recreation and LOGIS is the first industrial development in Victoria to introduce T5 energy efficient street lighting. Posts feature twin lamps that activate when the roads are busy and reduce to one active lamp when road usage decreases.

DANDENONG LOGIS ECO-INDUSTRIAL BUSINESS PARK PLACES VICTORIA AND MELBOURNE WATER

AN EXCELLENT model for future mixed-use development, the concepts used in this particular site have not been seen in the Awards for Excellence submissions before. The emerging trend of apartments above the retail environment has been done well with a clear delineation between residential and retail. Circulation and access have been well handled with the apartments having separate entry foyers and the loading facilities are entirely within the ground level built form. Rubbish zones were relocated to a concealed section and creating a landscape buffer to adjoining residences. Of particular note were the storage cages which, unusually, were located on the same floor as the apartments, with obvious benefits for residents.

LANDSCAPE AWARD

winner

NAPOLI PARK PROVIDENCE PASK GROUP NAPOLI Park is not only beautiful; it is a multi-functional space of 1.8 hectares which has been provided early in the development of the Providence Estate. It is infused with many contemporary Australian elements. It is broken up into active and passive areas with a mix of walking paths through gardens, seating, protected spaces and opportunities for community and family gatherings. While containing all the appearances of a rich, exotic and layered environment, Napoli Park is actually designed to minimise maintenance, for example galvanised steel roofing treated in ‘Liquid Rust’ paint creates a themed effect while being a simple installation. It features art by mosaic artist Davia McMillan, which sit comfortably in the environment.

MEDIA AWARD MELBOURNE WATER RECOGNITION (FABCOT PTY LTD) AWARD

winner

MARRIOTT WATERS VILLAWOOD PROPERTIES VILLAWOOD has worked hard to redesign a very basic stormwater system with a ‘bottom of the drain’ retarding basin, into a well integrated wetland and floodway system. They have taken drainage from two catchments beyond the site and created a major feature of the estate which now forms part of a larger walking path system. Delivery of Class A recycled water was brought forward through the developer’s negotiations with the local water authority. A temporary above ground tank was installed as a holding tank for residents during peak times until the supply of recycled water became a permanent facility. Over 20% of the site has been devoted to the waterways and parks, the wetlands significantly reducing the risk of flooding in the low-lying area.

winner

TRACT TRACT produced a study for The (Melbourne) Magazine which measured the liveability of Melbourne’s suburbs, according to 14 criteria. The article produce very interesting, relevant data and created discussion about planning issues, making some of the issues affecting the industry more accessible to the general public.

Practice perfect A SPRINGVALE nurse has been applauded for her dedication to helping women beat cancer. Van Dang took home the Quality of Practice award at the recent PapScreen Victoria Nurse Cervical Screening Provider Awards. The awards are held every three years and recognise the huge contribution nurse cervical screening providers make to cervical cancer prevention in Victoria, particularly in underscreened communities and regional areas. There were more than 50 nominees for the eight awards on offer, with an expert judging panel determining the winners. “I have an important role in Springvale in helping to share the

message about the importance of regular screening when it comes to preventing cervical cancer,” Ms Dang said. “Education is so important, especially with so many women from non-English speaking backgrounds in the local area. “I am able to spend time with them, provide advice and make sure they are encouraging their relatives to come along, too.” PapScreen Victoria program manager Hiranthi Perera said nurses like Ms Dang were integral to the success of the cervical screening program in Victoria. “We know that many women prefer to see a nurse, in particular a female provider, when having their

Pap test taken,” she said. “When a Pap test every two years can reduce the risk of cervical cancer by 90 per cent, nurses’ contribution to engaging more women in the program cannot be understated.” Ms Perera said about 80 per cent of women diagnosed with cervical cancer had either never had a Pap smear test or had not had them regularly in the 10 years prior to their diagnosis. “There’s simply no better reason for women to make sure they are up-to-date,” she said. For more information visit www.papscreen.org.au or call the Cancer Council Helpline on 13 11 20.

Van Dang has been recognised for her hard work.

Warriors share wise words STUDENTS from Dandenong High School shared water-wise words at a recent conference. They were among 450 Water Warriors from 47 schools selected for the Melbourne Water Kids Teaching Kids Conference. The internationally-recognised environmental event has kids teach their peers through novel, interactive, informative and fun workshops. This year’s theme was the urban water cycle and students were challenged

to think about their connection to and impact on all elements of the cycle - drinking water, stormwater, wastewater and waterways. The Dandenong students performed Willy Wonka and the Water Factory prior to a gala dinner on the conference’s first day. Day two had students attend an environmental project day at Collingwood Children’s Farm where they took part in activities including building a rain garden and tree planting.

BUSINESS SOUTH-EAST

Fulfilment lasts forever By CASEY NEILL AUSTRALIAN manufacturing has a huge future - but it has to change the way it treats customers. This was the message from guest speaker Brad Smith at the South East Business Networks (SEBN) Christmas industry breakfast at Sandown Racecourse in Springvale on Thursday 5 December. The Braaap Motorcycles founder said manufacturers overseas treated him as a partner, while to those in Australia he was “just an invoice”. The 26-year-old handed out plenty of wisdom belying his years, urging those in the room to embrace and understand growth. “Growth has no finish line. Growth happens whether we like it or not,” he said. “How do we control that growth? “Hope is not a growth strategy.” Mr Smith said there were 2.7 million small businesses in Australia. “We compete with people from all around the world for our customers,” he said. “Ninety-seven per cent of the 2.7 million never reach $1 million turnover. “They don’t know the activities that drive the results in their business.” He said today’s was the most privileged generation in history, but also the most spoilt. “Comfort wears out. Fulfilment lasts forever,” he said. “On the other side of challenge is accomplishment.” And Mr Smith, who grew up in

“Why am I the only one wearing my bon-bon hat?” asked guest speaker Adam Elliot, with SEBN manager Sandra George. 111667 government housing, urged parents to let kids build their own muscle. “I don’t think money can kill motivation,” he said. “But parents can.” Oscar-winning film maker Adam Elliot shared the excitement of finding out about his 2004 Academy Award

Joanne Warnecke from City of Greater Dandenong, guest speaker Brad Smith, council family day care field officer Melda Rasool and Brenda Robinson from Nature’s Blend. 111667 Pictures: CASEY NEILL

nomination for short claymation Harvie Krumpet, the awards ceremony process and the David and Goliath win no one saw coming. “Even my mum said we had no chance,” he said. “It’s almost 10 years to the day since we first got an inkling that we

were in with the chance to get nominated.” Mr Elliot said the best part of the win was he got to make more films including Mary and Max. He went from himself and occasional helpers to 120 staff, including Craig Ross who now works at Dande-

nong disability support service Wallara. He writes and produces one film every five years, he recently told group of eight year olds. One replied: “That means you’ve only got four left.”

Importer loses out after underpaying truck driver A DANDENONG-based grocery importer must pay a $128,700 fine for negligently underpaying a “vulnerable” delivery truck driver. The Federal Circuit Court issued the penalty to Lay Brothers (Wholesale) Pty Ltd and ordered the business to pay $124,816 in back-pay to the worker. The East Timorese immigrant aged in his 40s speaks English as a second language, and lodged a complaint with the Fair Work Ombudsman after he was underpaid while employed as a delivery truck driver. Lay Brothers paid him flat hourly rates of between $10 and $11.50 between 2007 and 2011, despite him often working more than 60 hours a week and weekends. He was entitled to at least

$14 to $16 for normal work hours and more than $20 an hour for overtime and weekends. In imposing the penalty, Judge Frank Turner said withholding such a large amount of pay from a vulnerable employee was a serious offence. “(The employee) was a cousin of the respondent’s managing director - he was entitled to trust him - that trust was breached to a very serious extent,” he said. “There is no proof that the underpayments were deliberate, but at best they must have resulted from a failure by the respondent to inquire about the correct entitlements, therefore they resulted from negligence. “Ignorance of the law is no excuse. An employer must ascertain the correct entitlements and accord them.”

Fair Work Ombudsman Natalie James said the court’s decision sent a message that underpaying vulnerable employees would not be tolerated. “We will not hesitate to take action to protect the workplace entitlements of vulnerable workers in the community,” she said. “Successful prosecutions such as this also benefit employers who are complying with workplace laws because it helps them to compete on a level playing field.” Employers and employees seeking assistance should visit www.fairwork.gov.au or call the Fair Work Infoline on 13 13 94. A free interpreter service is available on 13 14 50.

Tee off is hit for homeless By CASEY NEILL BUSINESSES will hit the golf course for Hanover Welfare Services next year. The South East Business Networks (SEBN) Take a Swing for Charity event is scheduled for Sandhurst Golf Club in Skye on 24 February. It’s raised more than $160,000 for the community’s most vulnerable over the past four years. Hanover Welfare Services CEO Tony Keenan said next year’s proceeds would provide a playground, laundry facili-

ties, a dental brokerage fund for children and childcare for mums returning to work. The service for the homeless will celebrate its 50th birthday next year and runs Bob’s Place in Dandenong, which helps more than 1000 people each year. Mr Keenan said most of the homeless people that Hanover helped in its early days were men but today 2500 of its 6500 clients across the state were children. He said family violence was the biggest driver for homelessness, with the housing crisis and

employment vulnerability not far behind. Take a Swing for Charity needs event sponsors, players, hole sponsors, auction prizes, financial donations and attendees for the after-game dinner. In other Greater Dandenong business event news, a race day at Sandown is scheduled for 22 March with a breakfast the day before. Businesses will have the opportunity to sponsor a race. Call SEBN on 8571 1576 or email sebn@cgd.vic.gov.au for more information.

NPL season a done deal By JARROD POTTER THE speculation is over - top tier Victorian soccer is confirmed for 2014. After another off-season full of controversy, this time with Football Federation Victoria (FFV) and its Victorian Premier League (VPL) clubs at loggerheads over the implementation of the National Premier League (NPL) model, the dispute has been resolved and all parties will now gear-up for the initial NPL season next year. Dandenong Thunder is set to put its name in the hat for the National Premier League in Victoria - after joining with the other 47 clubs to backlash against the FFV’s initial model. Thunder committee member Sezar Jakupi said the club is pleased with the outcome decided by the clubs, the league and Football Federation Australia (FFA). “We were always confident of getting the FFA to understand and pretty much that’s what it came down to - when the FFA finally came on board they realised what we were trying to do was reasonable,” Jakupi said. “We were just trying to ensure

that we could bring up the best model for everyone, so we’re very happy.” In a press release, FFA CEO David Gallop has commended Football Federation Victoria (FFV) and its member clubs for pushing ahead to get the NPL set up for 2014. “The NPL is an integral part of our national elite player pathway and a hugely important reform of the semi-professional tier of Australian football,” said Gallop. “FFV and its clubs have worked through many issues and agreed on an NPL model that’s now a benchmark nationally in many areas. “Australia wants to be among the elite nations in Asia and beyond, and that means developing the next generation of stars. I’m delighted to say that Victoria will be at the forefront of that challenge.” In other Thunder news, redevelopments on George Andrews Reserve have started with the renovations set to finish sometime around February. “It should be great, it really should… it will be a bit of a new look Dandy Thunder - the pavilion, facilities, coaches and players and so forth, so we’re looking forward to it.” Thunder’s Jakupi said.

Looming Waves no match By JARROD POTTER WHILE the result still went Dandenong’s way comfortably, from a league point of view the improvement of West Coast will be the biggest take away from the Rangers’ 79-58 win in Perth on Saturday night. After whitewashing West Coast last month at home 90-36, the Waves showed a lot more resistance this time around - pushing Dandenong all the way in the 21-point victory. The three-point game Dandenong has come to signify in the WNBL this season went missing as usual hot-shots only converted 2-12 from beyond the line. West Coast hassled Dandenong throughout the match as the Waves kept the Rangers to only 35 points after half-time, with Antonia Edmondson (17pts) and Natalie Burton (11pts) providing some scoreboard impact.

The Dandenong maestro Jenna O’Hea (19pts, 5ast) continued her rampage through the competition, snaring her stats off only 28 minutes, while Natalie Novosel (16pts, 4stl, 4ast) and Alice Kunek (15pts, 5reb) also rattled off crucial shots to help push aside the Waves. Mark Wright went to his bench to provide minutes to his full roster with Aimie Clydesdale (10pts) impressing on her return from a fractured finger, while Brigitte Ardossi (10pts, 5reb) also put some excellent numbers up for limited minutes. Leilani Mitchell (8pts, 5ast) also offered up strong numbers in the win. Dandenong maintains second spot on the WNBL ladder and hosts Sydney on Saturday night, the last home game of the year for the Rangers. Tip-off is 7.30pm at Dandenong Basketball Stadium.

By RUSSELL BENNETT HAMPTON Park 15-year-old Ngaheretia Kingi has taken the karate world by storm, playing a huge role in putting Dandenong’s Shukokai dojo on the map. She is fresh off returning from this year’s World Karate Federation Junior World Championships - held near Madrid in Spain - where she fought in the female 14-15 54-plus kilogram cadet class. Ngaheretia may only be 15, but she’s already an eight-year karate veteran with a fighting resume that stacks up against the very best. She won gold at last year’s Australian Karate Federation National Championships in a season that also saw her claim top spot in the Victorian Open, Sydney International and Australian Open tournaments. She backed that up by winning this year’s Victorian Open, along with top-three finishes in the Australian Open and National Championships. Ngaheretia made a reputation for herself putting in the long, hard training hours. In preparation for the world titles she trained for around 25 hours-per-week - more than a part-time job.

“We all want that gold medal,” she said. “We wouldn’t be here doing this otherwise.” But a world championship fairy story just wasn’t to be... she “got smashed” 4-0. “They’re always one step ahead at that level,” Ngaheretia added. “It’s a big jump up from the nationals. “We’re the best here but over there we’re at the bottom again.” The championships in Spain featured about 1300 competitors from 92 countries. Qualifying alone, was a massive achievement. Dandenong’s Shukokai has long had a reputation for producing world-class fighters. Chief instructor, Sensei Ennio Anselmi beamed when describing Ngaheretia’s effort in Spain. “There are two-minute rounds that are just hectic,” he said. “You’ve got no time to take it easy... all it can take is one point to lose a fight - a single moment can change everything and if you lose a point, you have to recompose yourself within seconds. “It’s such a rollercoaster sport but I’m so proud. “Only the best of the best make it to these big tournaments... just like the Olympics.”

Reckless Cobras downed Nathan King struck 71 to help push the Bloods to victory against Berwick. 111784 Pictures: JARROD POTTER

Tharanga Lakshita claimed two wickets for Lyndale. 111787

By JARROD POTTER FULL sunshine still couldn’t guarantee strong chases in the Dandenong District Cricket Association’s (DDCA) Turf 1 competition.

Buckley Ridges v Heinz Southern Dist. THE Ridges’ bowling group held on against a resilient Heinz Southern Districts (197), but the Cobras will rue their recklessness in trying to chase down the runs. Heinz started poorly with the openers and the number four dismissed for 3/19 as Jeremy Kuru (4/31) and Dan Haasbroek (3/38) got the ball to bounce and trouble the Cobras. Adam Semmens (60) proved the backbone of the innings as he flogged the ball about the postage stamp-sized Park Oval, striking seven boundaries and four sixes in his half century. Semmens and Matt Cox (38) combined for an 83-run partnership before Cox was forced back to the sheds by Kuru. Semmens was next to go, trapped in front by wily spinner Wes Nicholas (2/67). Justin Davis (27) and captain Trevor Davies (14) tried to hold the innings together, but the pair were broken by Nicholas. Travis Davis (11) held on while Justin Davis went the smack - belting three sixes - but Heinz was running out of

wickets while a mountain of time remained in the game. Eventually the Cobras would fall with 16 overs still in the match and only 27 more runs to get. Buckley Ridges now face Hallam Kalora Park away while Heinz hosts Coomoora.

Springvale South v Berwick KING by name, king by nature. Nathan King (71) led the Springvale South (8/155) run chase against Berwick (153), with the Bloods troubled by the Bears’ bowlers. Chasing a moderate tally, King charged past the half-century mark en route to a century, but couldn’t gain enough support from the top order. Steven Masterson (15), Dylan Quirk (7), Ryan Quirk (1) and Jackson Sketcher (10) all failed to ingrain themselves to the crease. Tim Ford (280 was the next man to stand up after King was trapped in front by Jarrod Goodes (3/38) with the Bloods still needing 40 for victory. Ford found resistance at the other end from Aaron Morrison (7no), holding on for 47 balls to help guide the victory. This week Springvale South battles Mordialloc in a second-versus-third showdown at Ben Kavanagh Reserve while Berwick hosts Dandenong West.

Hallam Kalora Park v Lyndale THE best efforts of the Booths - Leigh (95) and Cory (47) still wasn’t enough to knock off Lyndale (6/279cc). Finding themselves at the impressively horrific 2/0 following Michael Gallagher (1/16) and Tharanga Lakshita (2/47) ripping the openers out instantly. Hallam’s middle order showed backbone, with Byron (29) chipping in to support the Booths, as the brothers went on to pile up a 73-run partnership for the fourth wicket. Dale Tormey (5/44) snared his first as he found Cory Booth edging one just before his milestone and the procession started in earnest from there. Tormey snared the crucial scalp of Leigh Booth five-short of his century and from there Hallam couldn’t hold on against Lyndale’s wrath as Tormey ravaged the tail. Lyndale now faces Parkfield in a top-four battle while Hallam Kalora Park hosts Buckley Ridges.

Coomoora v North Dandenong COOMOORA (85) is risking relegation with its lacklustre start to the season, with North Dandenong (181) walking all over the Kangaroos for the Norths’ second win. Resistance was sporadic and inconsistent from the Kangaroos’ top

order - with Luke Wenke (21) and Rahoul Pankhania (16) the only fighters among them. Coomoora crumbled to 8/56 after Jake D’Atri (0) was run out for a duck, with Jurgen Andersen (5/27) leading the Norths’ attack. Some last ditch runs from Lance Baptist (26) pushed the tally towards 100, but the Kangaroos’ hopped from the crease for a meagre 85 off only 39.5 overs. This week Coomoora heads to Heinz for the last game of 2013 while North Dandenong hosts Narre Warren.

Dandenong West v Parkfield THE middle order response from Parkfield (8/200) was enough to best Dandenong West (121). Failing fast at 3/49, the attack was taken to the Bulls by Parkfield’s Jack Jones (49), Steve Spoljaric (27) and Samiddha Gallage (57). Gallage knocked in his second half-century of the season to guide the Bears to a comfortable win. Snaring the scalps for the Bulls were Andrew Harry (2/24), Peter Atkinson (2/37) and Walid Ghauri (2/49). Parkfield maintains top billing in Turf 1 and will now host Lyndale who is battling to stay in the four. Dandenong West heads to Berwick, who will unveil Sri Lankan test crick-

eter Thilan Samaraweera in his first two-dayer for the club.

Coming up THE DDCA faces the VSCA for a Twenty20 match on Sunday 15 December at Casey Fields from 2.30pm - with each team featuring one player from the Dandenong Women’s Cricket Club. An exhibition match between the Melbourne Stars Big Bash League team and a VCA All Stars team will precede the DDVA/VSCA clash at 10am.

Final home advantage DADNENONG Women’s Cricket Club hosts Essendon Maribyrnong Park in the Lions final home game of 2013. The Lions sit fourth on the Victorian Women’s Cricket Association (VWCA) ladder and a win against the second placed EMP will help create a comfortable buffer on the chasing pack. The Twenty20 match starts at 11am at Greaves Reserve.

Beefed up By JARROD POTTER IN VSDCA action, Noble Park duo Anthony Salomon and Issy Perera charged through Endeavour Hills’ (138) attack. Set 200 to win in lush conditions at Moodemere Street, the Eagles had their wings clipped early by some nimble Bulls’ bowling. Chris Peake (28) and Jarrod Russell (20) were the only Eagles in the top order to show some resilience at the crease as Salomon (3/32) and Perera (3/40) started working their way down the card. At 7/73 victory looked a long way off for Endeavour Hills, until backbone was finally applied by ‘father timeless’ himself Richard Saniga (43) - showing the young whippersnappers what batting aptitude resembles. Saniga found a useful partner in Shane Peake (22), with the pair adding 50 for the eighth wicket. Greatly resembling last round’s effort with Chris Pereira, Saniga held the tail together as the rest of the order failed to fire, but fell as the final scalp to Fernando on 43. Chipping in for scalps throughout were Noble Park’s Mevan Fernando (2/11) and new-ball bowler Dhanushka Ekanayake (2/28). The win secures Noble Park’s spot in the top-six and the Bulls finish their 2013 campaign with a two-dayer at Mount Waverley starting Saturday. Endeavour Hills hosts Croydon in its last match of the year before the Christmas break.

TASMANIAN greyhound Queen Ahmose made the most of her short visit to Victoria, claiming her first win on the mainland last Thursday night at Sandown Park. Springing from box three to lead the pack first time past the post, Queen Ahmose staved off a late challenge from Zipping Makka to record the best of the night time of 34.47 over the 595m trip. Queen Ahmose left the Apple Isle in outstanding form, having won eight of her previous 12 starts over distances from 580m to 720m before making the trip to Victoria. The win was just reward for the training partnership of Rodney and Alison Walker, who had trialled Queen Ahmose and kennel mate Bell Oh Moss at Sandown Park the week before. “They went really well, I was impressed” Rodney Walker said. “Bell Oh Moss lead early and Queen Ah-

mose run her down, she’s super strong this one.” The trip to Victoria was no vacation for the pair, returning to their home in the town of Bagdad - north of Hobart - on Friday night. However it won’t be the last time we see Queen Ahmose racing in Victoria. “We will be back - don’t worry about that.” There are a number of feature events coming up over the middle distance, including Australia’s richest provincial cup, the Group 1 Sale Cup. The win was Queen Ahmose’s 15th from 36 career starts and the $5750 first prize last Thursday night took her career prize money to $28,370 - highlighting the difference in prize money levels between the two states. The heats of the Macro Meats Laurels Classic will be run this Thursday night at Sandown Park. As greyhound racing’s version of the Victoria Oaks, the Macro Meats Laurels will feature some of the best female greyhounds in the country aiming for the $50,000 winner’s purse. The final will be run on Thursday 26 December.

Panthers’ pulverisation... twofold! By JARROD POTTER IT WAS 80 overs of pain for Dandenong as both Twenty20 clashes in this season’s Victorian Premier Cricket Bush Bash went against them. St Kilda (2/149cc) belted the Panthers first up on Saturday morning about Ballarat as Graeme Rummans (91no) hit the stuffing out of the Dandenong attack with only Nathan Lambden (1/28) taking a wicket. The dog morning continued for the Panthers as St Kilda smashed them all out for 65. Falling to 7/37 at one stage, Rob Hearn (25) was left to hold on for grim life at the death with James Wilcock (10) also showing a bit of battle. The resolve proved fleeting as the Panthers failed to bat out

their overs - succumbing in the 16th over for a scant 65. Their second effort for the day didn’t prove much better, with the Panthers making 7/112cc against Greenvale Kangaroos. Andrew Gale (43) was the key slugger for Dandenong - with Tom Donnell (18), Dan Doran (17) and Hearn (11) chipping in to push the tally towards a defendable mark. Greenvale took all but four balls to chase it down with Eric Ghasperidis (41) the best of the Kangaroos as Dan Doran (2/21) was the best of the Panthers’ bowlers. The next round of Twenty20s takes place this weekend as Dandenong faces Carlton and CaseySouth Melbourne.

MOTORING

Big sculptured shape By EWAN KENNEDY HYUNDAI i30 station wagon is a practical big brother to the i30 five-door hatchback that has already scored plenty of points in the sales race since it was launched early in 2013. Though it’s South Korean, Hyundai calls this i30 variant a ‘Tourer’ rather than a station wagon to give it a European flavour. This vehicle was designed in Germany and is very much aimed at that huge economic area in its chassis dynamics and overall performance. The front of the new Hyundai Tourer wagon has what its designers call Fluidic Sculpture. Potential buyers agree and say the modern lines really stand out from the crowd in what is generally a conservative market segment. Hyundai i30 Tourer is sold in two trim levels - Active and Elite. Ours was an Elite and we found it pleasing to drive and ride in. This really is a practical load carrier that offers excellent value for money, with a recommended price list beginning at $22,990. Unlike the now super-

Active 1.6-litre petrol five-door wagon: $22,990 (manual), $25,190 (automatic); Active CRDi 1.6-litre turbo-diesel five-door wagon: $25,590 (manual), $27,790 (automatic); Elite CRDi 1.6-litre turbo-diesel five-door wagon: $31,390 (automatic).

Stylish Hyundai i30 Tourer wagon will meet the needs of many families - and do so at a modest price. seded Hyundai i30 station wagon which had a longer wheelbase than the hatchback variant, the new i30 Tourer shares the hatch’s 2650mm wheelbase. While that’s a long wheelbase for this class, though the wagon isn’t as voluminous it might otherwise have been. However interior and luggage space are still pretty good and potential buyers we spoke to agreed it would usually meet all their needs.

That’s because the body of all-new i30 Tourer is 185 mm longer overall than the hatch. It has 528 litres of stowage capacity with rear seats up, a significant increase of 150 litres over the hatch. This volume rises to an impressive 1642 litres with the rear seats folded flat. Additional underfloor storage compartments are of a decent size and add to the Tourer’s versatility

Again following the Europeans, the new Hyundai i30 Tourer is sold with both petrol and turbo-diesel powertrains. The 1.6-litre direct-injection petrol engine puts out 99 kW of power and 164 Nm of torque. While peak torque is at a very high 4850 rpm, aimed at high-speed touring on European motorways, we found it was strong for plenty of the rev band below that high number. Making it much more suit-

ed to Australian driving. Both engines can have either a sixspeed manual or six-speed automatic, sitting beside it. The automatic transmission has a sequential manual mode, but we tended to leave it to its own decisions most of the time and found it to have good grunt in real life conditions. Fuel consumption was usually in the six to seven litres per 100 kilometres range in country and motoring running, rising to

Model range

a still reasonable seven to nine litres around town in heavy traffic and commuting running. All-new Hyundai i30 Tourer has an impressive range of active and passive safety technologies. Standard across all models are Vehicle Stability Management (VSM), Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Traction Control System (TCS), and ABS with EBD and Brake Assist. As will all Hyundai models sold downunder in recent years, the i30 Tourer has suspension tuned to Australian driving conditions and drivers’ desires. It’s slightly on the firm side compared with what we would have expected in the South Korean original, but follows the Australian (and European) handling and dynamic trends. We like it, but perhaps try it for yourself if your preference puts comfort over handling ideally over the sort of roads you will be using on a regular basis. If you can live without the image of a European car and the macho looks of an SUV, then you will get a lot of vehicle for a very modest price in the all-new Hyundai i30 Tourer wagon.
