Owners Jake Hills and Nick Cunneen are set to revamp the music store business and bring a totally different experience to Pakenham. Jake and Nick met as students at Berwick Primary School, playing in the school rock band Teacher's Nightmare. But they were far from a teacher's nightmare. The mates were lucky enough to have a music teacher by the name of Ian Handasyde as their mentor. Ian instilled in Jake and Nick a love of

music that they have now turned into a business. Wanting to give back to the community and follow their passion, the pair has opened a retail store selling a wide range of instruments including guitars and drums. The store also offers music lessons, instrument hire and features a private air-conditioned rehearsal room for practise.

The Premiers' Reading Challenge has become an institution since is started more than a decade ago. Since the Challenge began in 2005, more than 2.5 million students in Victoria have read more than 45 million books. In his annual message to participants Premier Daniel Andrews said "these are numbers worth celebrating, with the Challenge serving as a cornerstone of our ambitious goal to get more kids reading". "Research shows that reading plays a vital role in a child's development, helping students develop their academic, social and emotional skills," Mr Andrews said.

Getting an early start at university Four Year 12 students at the Pakenham campus of Chairo Christian School are breaking new ground by attending university classes while still studying for their VCE. It's a first for Chairo, but Lilly Butler, Chloe Goodie, Hannah McCracken and Amy Hermans believe it's a highly beneficial opportunity. "There are advantages; it creates independence and gives you the chance to study in an area that you really want to explore," Chloe said. Lilly and Chloe are both attending Monash University at Clayton, studying History and Medieval Worlds and Psychology respectively, while Hannah is studying Understanding University Learning at Federation University. Since Year 10, Amy has had the opportunity to attend seminars and receive other support as the recipient of a Melbourne University Kwong Lee Dow scholarship. The girls taking university subjects attend tutorials just like everyone else has to in their chosen field, while also participating in group assignments with their classmates. "The learning is really up to you; you choose the way you want to learn and the teachers don't really follow you up, which is different to school," Lilly explained. Juggling school and university commitments does come with some challenges. Getting up extra early so they can catch the train for 9.00 am classes in the city is not always easy, while also missing a day of school each week means catching up on their school stud-

Homework help at hand The Department of Education and Training website has a number of tips for ways parents can support their child's learning. Helping your child with homework is a great way to get involved in your child’s education. Your child’s teacher will usually tell you about homework at the start of the year and give you a copy of the homework policy. The homework set for your child will vary depending on their age, the subject and the school’s approach to homework. The degree of difficulty and length of homework will also be set according to their age and ability. Homework will become more challenging in secondary school, in particular during the final years. Practice exercises give your child opportunities to apply new knowledge, or to review and reinforce recently learned skills. They include: completing maths exercises practising words or phrases learnt in a language other than English reading essay writing and other creative tasks practising and playing musical instruments practising physical education skills SchoolMate is a free mobile app for parents of school-aged children in Victoria. It breaks down what your child is learning at school in each subject and each year level, and suggests activities and reading that you can do at home to support your child's learning. To download the SchoolMate app, see: SchoolMate Connect Primary Students is a Department website that links you to a range of suitable websites for primary school aged children that contain information, activities, projects and games.

Life is all for the learning Pakenham Hills Primary School strives to create a learning environment where all students take responsibility for their learning in order to reach their personal best. The school fosters a belief that each student should be given the opportunity to learn social, emotional and academic skills. They aim to ensure each child develops the learning strategies, behaviours and attitudes of lifelong learners as well as the social skills needed to work, play and get along with others.

Staff collaborate regularly to analyse student data and plan a differentiated program to ensure all students’ needs are targeted. “Pakenham Hills use a positive school-wide behaviour approach to management whereby all of the members of the PHPS community know how to ‘be safe, be respectful, be responsible and be a learner,’” Assitant Principal Rachael Kimber said. “Student voice is an integral part of the Pakenham Hills culture and runs in several different ways.

“Students are consulted by their teachers to inform classroom practice and school improvement. Pakenham Hills also runs an additional fortnightly student voice team meetings where all grade levels are represented. These students work collaboratively with Cardinia Shire to provide feedback and make decisions around priority project areas within the school and wider community.” Pakenham Hills offers a range of programs including Pakky SEALS which is a transition to school program for Pre-Prep students.

“SEALS stands for social, emotional and academic learning skills development and allows students to develop and practice some of the pre-learning skills necessary for success at school,” Ms Kimber said. Information sessions for 2019 Pakenham Hills Prep students are on 5 June at 9:30am and 5:30pm. For more information, phone 5941 4436 or visit www.pakenhamhillsps.vic.edu.au.

Faces of war A thoughtful initiative by students at St Brigid’s Primary School in Officer have been described as “profound” and “life-changing” by veterans in the local community. Classroom teacher Michaela Anderson decided to set the Anzac narrative on a different path by using her personal connection to war to teach her students about the national day of remembrance. Ms Anderson is the daughter of a Gulf War veteran who served on HMAS Success in Kuwait and suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a result. Fed up with the glorification of war and hegemony of ‘heroism’, Ms Anderson decided to teach her students about the other, less glamorous side of the battlefield. “I wanted to teach my students about veterans and about the struggles they face returning to civilian life, using my Dad as an example,” she said. The students’ memorable effort is detailed in a report in our sister paper the Pakenham-Berwick Gazette.

Mr Brennen said the school ruled that they were unable to provide the level of education support the child needed, but were happy to help Ms King find alternate education. "Given the child's specific needs, the year level the child would be enrolled in, our current enrolment numbers in that year level, and the support the child would require, we established after careful consideration that we were unable to provide the level of education support the child required.

The disgruntled mother, who asked for her name to be with held, claims her application to send two of her children to Lakeside College have been denied due to her third son's disability. She said she initially went to the school to inquire about a place for her Grade 4 son who has Asperger's and ADHD, only to be told by the school that they weren't prepared to take on his needs.

Sod-turning for college’s new facility By Rowan Forster Officer's Heritage College is one step closer to developing a state-of-the-art multi-purpose facility, with staff and students hosting a sodturning ceremony on Monday. The centre - touted as a significant development for the Starling Road school - has officially entered its construction phase, with a price tag between $2 million and $3 million. It comes at the beginning of Education Week and follows the closure of tender listings in April. School principal Sonny Aiono intends to use the new building for a range of functions and activities. "It will be our sports centre for the secondary and the primary students from Officer," he said. "It'll also be a place for college meetings, end of year speech nights and weekly sports events."

Developers hope to complete the construction by early 2019. The project comes in two phases, with the second consisting of new learning areas and an administration office. Mr Aiono said the sod-turning was a long time in the making, and it has parents, students and staff excited. "Teachers have said they'll believe it when they see the first tractor come in, and now it's finally happening," he said. "It's been highly anticipated for a number of years". The ceremony concluded with a prayer of blessing from Heritage College staff and pupils, hoping for safety throughout the construction. It is hoped the facility will be available to community members as well as students and faculty.

By Cam Lucadou-Wells A man has denied he rammed a police car with a Mercedes Benz and fled in the car across a footpath in Cranbourne East, a court bail hearing has heard. John Brendan Persoons, 38, of Cranbourne East, told Dandenong Magistrates’ Court that his 19-year-old son was driving the car at the time on 2 May. “My son rang me that day in a panic. He thinks I will take responsibility for him,” Persoons told the 14 May hearing. “I’m no longer willing to take responsibility for him. “I have an alibi, I was nowhere near the scene.” Persoons had been identified with the support of sworn witness statements, including by the son, police alleged. Two officers had observed the lack of number plates on the white Mercedes Benz vehicle and followed with their lights flashing, Leading Senior Constable Gregory Carter told the court.

Police parked behind the vehicle after it pulled into a home’s driveway on Stately Drive. Persoons then allegedly reversed the white sedan into the police car, and sped off by crossing a public footpath. The car was found by police at Lawson Poole Reserve that afternoon. Persoons was arrested at the Stately Drive house on 13 May. He faced indictable charges including intentionally exposing two police officers to a risk to safety. Under new legislation, Persoons faces a minimum jail period of two years if found guilty of the charge, the court heard. He was also charged with reckless driving to cause damage to an emergency services vehicle and dangerous driving knowing that police had given him a direction to stop. Persoons also faced pending charges of breaching parole, as well as making and using a false document, Lead Sen Const Carter told the court. In opposing bail, police described Persoons

as an unemployed drug user with an extensive criminal history. He was extremely likely to reoffend to fund his lifestyle, Lead Sen Const Carter said. Persoons told the court he had suitable accommodation, was seeking drug rehabilitation and “trying to do all the right things”. “I’m not a criminal out to cause any harm. Drugs have been the cause of it, Your Honour.” Magistrate Jack Vandersteen asked Persoons why he had dropped out of contact with corrections officers for the past three months. He’d also had prior convictions for motorvehicle theft, failing to stop for police and dangerous driving - as well as 11 counts of disqualified driving, Mr Vandersteen said. In refusing bail, Mr Vandersteen noted the “very serious” charges, Persoon’s non-compliance with his CCO and that the prosecution case was “not weak”. Persoons told the court he was withdrawing from heroin, ice and morphine. He was remanded for a filing hearing at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on 18 May.

Aboriginal outreach success under threat By Cam Lucadou-Wells Casey's popular Aboriginal Gathering Place is weeks away from facing cuts of $205,000 in State funding. As a result, the Doveton-based facility hailed as "the perfect model" for Aboriginal community outreach - faces discontinuation of four youth programs from 1 July, Casey Council claims. The facility's opening hours would also be cut by about 10 hours a week, "profoundly impacting" on access to the service. Casey councillor Rosalie Crestani led an urgent business motion at a council meeting on 15 May for a funding extension. "I've seen first-hand the supportive and connected space for our indigenous sisters and brothers. "It is a positive environment." Cr Rex Flannery declared he would be "embarrassed" to meet at Bunjil Place if the programs were cut. The gathering place offers something for scores of visitors of all ages - groups for youths, gardening, women's crafts, playgroup children and primary-school aged children. It serves a substantial indigenous community in Casey and neighbouring Dandenong. Artist 'Uncle' Doug Brown, who attends and helped set-up the centre, said it was a place that people could come and go. "They can have a cup of coffee or tea and talk about their problems with the workers. "You don't have to make an appointment. You can just come in and talk." The centre was vital to address social isolation, he said. "Before it was set up, we didn't have anything like it around here." The $205,000 in ceased funding covers the

It threatens the gathering place's beforeschool sports programs with breakfast and school attendance, Dandenong and District Aboriginal Cooperative youth groups, a kids club and health promotions and weekly events. Cr Crestani said the Government was halting funding as it transitioned to a new 10-year Aboriginal health, wellbeing and safety plan. She said there had been "positive negotiations" with the Department but "we don't want the programs to be lost between now and when the 10-year-plan comes on board". Casey Council recently increased its fund-

ing for youth homework and school holiday programs in 2018-'19. The facility also receives $171,500 in federal funding, which expires in October 2020. Funds for a local justice worker program expire on 30 June 2019. Cr Crestani said the facility's success was proven since it opened in 2016. It has been recognised by the Department of Health and Human Services' principal Aboriginal advisor as the "perfect model" that should be replicated across the state, she said. The centre was a finalist at the 2016 LGPro Awards and a case study in the Victorian Aboriginal and Local Government Action Plan 2016.

By Cam Lucadou-Wells Six days after being put on a corrections order, a serial drug-trafficker returned to his old locale with bags of ‘ice’, measuring scales and $2870, a court has heard. Steven Wood pleaded guilty to his fourth drug-trafficking offence, at Dandenong Magistrates’ Court via a custody video link on 14 May. He had been arrested after being found walking on Mossgiel Park Drive, Endeavour Hills about 4.19am on 27 March, the court was told. Police seized 21.64 grams of methamphetamine in four bags of differing amounts. Wood also carried a gram of cannabis, two mobile phones, the cash and scales - as well as a “graffiti implement”. A defence lawyer told the court that the drugs were for Wood’s personal use, the scales were to manage his drug intake and that he had two phones because one of the phones was broken. Wood claimed he’d just won the cash mainly in $100, $50 and $20 denominations on pokies at Hallam Hotel. “It’s trafficking based on the amount he’s found with, not on buying and selling off to other people,” the lawyer said. Magistrate Jack Vandersteen noted the ice was more than seven times the minimum traffickable amount, the “significant” quantity of cash and the scales. “And so he’s carrying one (phone) that did work and one that didn’t work?” Mr Vandersteen said. “It’s not getting any better.” A week before his arrest, Wood had been sentenced to an eight-month corrections order for drug-trafficking in the same Endeavour Hills locale in August. The CCO followed a four-month CISP bail program - which included drug therapy and other social supports. “You obviously did quite well on the (CISP program) otherwise (the court) would not have put you on a community corrections order,” Mr Vandersteen said. It wasn’t appropriate to immediately release Wood on a CCO for what was his fourth trafficking offence in four years, he said. Wood was jailed for six months for trafficking and possessing the suspected proceeds of crime. The term includes 48 days of pre-sentence detention. When released, Wood will resume a varied corrections order including supervision and judicial monitoring.

THE LOWDOWN Q&A

with Robyn Murphy, volunteer firefighter with Pearcedale CFA fire brigade

How long have you been a volunteer with Pearcedale fire brigade? Almost 5 years. What have been some of the major bush fires you have attended? I haven't been able to get to faraway places much in the past due to needing to get kids to school and such, but I just recently went to Warrnambool to work in the Incident Control Centre for the Cobden fires. Closer to home, I've been at the Cranbourne and Carrum Downs Bush fires this year, and the Hastings, Somerville and Crib Point fires over the past couple of years. What keeps you interested in firefighting? The challenge, the variety, the CFA family. There's always something happening and there's always something new to learn, somewhere new to go, and someone new to meet. I love it.

What do you work toward in your free time? At the moment, it's preparing for my outback trip again. I'm heading back to Birdsville with a friend in July, so I'm busy planning for outback camping for about three weeks. I've got a lot of things still to do on the four-wheel-drive and just organising everything I need to take is pretty time-consuming.

What is your favourite book? The Eight, by Katherine Neville. It's an awesome and intriguing story that I first read about 25 years ago. But I also have (I think) 82 Stephen King books so I kind of like him a little bit as well :)

What is your favourite television show? I'm not a big TV watcher these days and I'm more inclined to stick a movie on Netflix when I want to watch something. That means I've ended up watching some real duds, and other times I've come across an awesome movie that I'd never heard of. 6. Favourite place to visit in Victoria? Hmm... Anything along the Great Ocean Road. I like chilling out in the coastal towns, and

driving alongside that part of the ocean is just breathtaking.

What is the most memorable moment in your life? It might sound a little selfish, but at the moment it's the trip I did to Birdsville and the outback on my own last year. I had a ball and met some awesome people; visited some amazing places and it was so nice just doing whatever I wanted when I felt like it.

THREE ‌ parks and gardens to explore in the City of Casey

What has been your most embarrassing moment? Fortunately, I don't think I really have too many of those as I'm usually the responsible one haha. But I must admit, when I was parking in South Yarra the other day, I managed to find out that my new four-wheel-drive with roof racks is over two metres, as I discovered when I hit the two metre clearance

Where would your perfect holiday destination be? Hamilton island! I've been there so many times and I absolutely love it. I've flown there, sailed there, ferried there ... each time I'm there it feels like a little home away from home. Just wish I could afford to go there every winter.

Rate rise warning decade. "This year's budget is ... a window into the future in which the cumulative pinch of rate capping is clear. It represents a tipping point where the future will be characterised by the increasingly difficult job of bridging the gap between the infrastructure and services the community expect and what Council can afford to deliver." With the help of State grants, the council still unveiled a $121.2 million capital works program for the coming financial year. Projects include a $4 million new pavilion at Jack Thomas Reserve, Narre Warren North, two new community centres at Clyde and Clyde North and a $7 million 'missing link' section of Glasscocks Road, Hampton Park.

12387579-CG20-18

A ratepayers group has urged Casey Council to not seek exemptions from rate-capping in future years. The draft 2018-'19 council budget lifts rates within the 2.25 per cent cap but mayor Geoff Ablett foreshadowed hard decisions down the track. Those hard decisions included either cutting services or seeking an exemption from the State Government's rate cap. Casey Residents and Ratepayers Association president Arvo Talvik said the group was against any move to increase rates above the cap. "I'd like to see the council reducing expenses.

It just requires better budgeting. All this rubbish about not having enough money for capital works two or three years down the track is a load of bulls***. They're just money-hungry." Mr Talvik said he didn't have much issue with the $28 average increase in waste charges proposed by Casey in 2018-'19. The council rose the levy after renegotiating its recycling waste contract with SKM Industries due to the China recycling import 'crisis'. CRRA is preparing a submission on the draft budget, suggesting possible savings such as cuts to Casey's $123 million wages bill. Cr Ablett recently said the rates cap was hurting growth councils such as Casey over the next

Whole class of kids missing out on school By Cam Lucadou-Wells Berwick 11-year-old Jack Ottens's deprivation from an education appears to be far from a oneoff. Unable to regularly attend school due to a life-threatening illness, Jack has not been able to access a teacher's aide or home tuition - as reported in Star News recently. He failed to meet the Program for Students with Disabilities criteria for such assistance. The criteria covers a "significant health impairment" but only those that require "regular paramedical support". The department has found Jack's illness is not significant enough. Since the report, Tynong single-mother Sharon McKail says her son, who is on the autism spectrum, also failed the PSD criteria. The Year 9 student was unable to qualify for a teacher's aide due to his language skills being too advanced and his IQ being above 70. "His IQ is below 80 but above 70," Ms McKail

Jack Ottens, centre, with mother Christine and brother Sam. 180392 Picture: STEWART CHAMBERS says. As a result, her son struggles to keep up with schoolwork despite the best efforts of his underresourced school, she says. It isn't a positive experience for him, so he often refuses to go to school, she says.

Ms McKail is part of a 300-plus member Facebook group Change the Criteria that has waged a campaign against the PSD rules since 2012. Many of its members have been unable to access funding to support children with autism spectrum disorder in Victorian public schools. Ms McKail says there's been little change, with Victoria well-behind her native New South Wales's inclusivity. "I really think the Government should re-establish special education units so the kids have the aides to help them." Likewise, Jack Ottens's mother Christine has waged a six-year battle for more help for her brilliant Mensa-listed boy, writing even to the Education Minister James Merlino to intervene. All Jack receives is an hour visit from a teacher each week to organise school work to be provided by his primary school. He was rejected from qualifying for the State's home-based education support program and the Program for Students with Disabilities.

As an aside to Cam Lucadou-Wells' article on detritus on the freeway (Star News, 10 May, page 7) perhaps it could have included the increasingly damaged bollards positioned to stop motorists driving on lanes that now appear to be quite drive-able left for months strewn over and alongside the freeway. Rather than spending more days off work than on, perhaps the clean-up crew/s could actually do their work more efficiently and productively as opposed to the sign erection teams that take great delight in the blocking off lanes for works being carried out some metres from the road and behind concrete barriers. And while you slowly wind your way to work or shopping, spare a thought to the Vic Road/Fulton Hogan team that have now seen fit to have erected something like 60-plus full freeway coverage overhead gantries between Chadstone and Pakenham. At what cost and what desired outcome is anyone’s guess. That does include several already positioned gantries (prior to the so-called road improvements designed to make it a safer and quicker journey) and several road flyovers used for signage and other VicRoads “initiatives“. You might note that some are placed rather close together, especially around Rowville and Dandenong for reasons best known to the design team given that they appear to be for the same intended purpose. I also note the “cheese cutter" damage that stays un-repaired and that they are now are a permanent part of the roadscape into and beyond Warragul, not only in the middle but on both sides of the freeway, effectively placing broken down and stopped vehicles and their humans at greater risk from “tail-enders“. I wonder if Vic Roads bothered to evaluate the effect of a myriad of road side signage (much of which appears needless replication) on driving safety and the incidence of tail-end accidents? I have a sneaking suspicion that our money at least in part could be better used on other infrastructure projects giving better bang for our dollars. Charles Harris, Pakenham

Two wanted Police are investigating two men who allegedly tried to buy more than $6000 of mobile phones using stolen credit cards at stores in Narre Warren. On 23 March, a man twice attempted to use a card at a store in a shopping centre on Overland Drive, police say. On the first transaction at 12.45pm, he tried to buy more than $4000 of phones. It was declined. He successfully re-attempted the purchase shortly after 5pm. Police say the man then unsuccessfully tried to buy almost $2700 of phones from a white goods store at Narre Warren at 8.30pm that night. The card was believed to be stolen from a South Yarra letterbox between 18 and 23 March. The next day, a second man allegedly used the same card to attempt the same purchase at the same store. The transaction was declined. He used a different card to spend about $2000, police say. On 2 May, the first man allegedly returned to the store in the shopping centre to make a purchase using an allegedly stolen card. He is described as Caucasian appearance, aged in his mid-20s and with brown wavy shoulder-length hair and a brown beard.

Hicham has clear vision By Cam Lucadou-Wells Hampton Park videographer Hicham Wahid has already got quite the highlights reel. The former Narre Warren South P-12 College student was recently awarded the top individual award at Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) Achievement Awards 2017. It effectively meant he was judged the state's top VCAL student. When he strode into the limelight and delivered his speech at the Deakin Edge ceremony, it suddenly felt real for Mr Wahid. "It scared me a bit having to do public speaking in front of a big audience. "I thought it would be just a simple award. It was a big deal. Before his two years of VCAL, Mr Wahid was unsure of his work direction. He explored teaching, sports, real estate and media without the dreaded pressure of VCE.

Car thief’s bail refused By Cam Lucadou-Wells A prolific car-thief has crashed at high speed with another vehicle while fleeing from police in Cranbourne West, a court bail hearing has heard. Christopher Matwiejewski allegedly sped away in a stolen gold Camry from pursuing police in Camms Road in November, Dandenong Magistrates' Court was told. The car travelled down the wrong side of South Gippsland Highway, crashing with an approaching Holden Barina. There was moderate damage to both vehicles, with both drivers escaping injury, police informant Acting Sergeant Gregory Kahan told the court. Matwiejewski fled on foot from the crash, failing to render assistance to the other driver. He was accused of stealing a Falcon advertised for sale on the internet in Croydon on 10 October. After test-driving the car, Matwiejewski drove off when the owner got out of the front passenger door. Police tried to intercept the stolen car being driven "at speed" on Western Port Highway, Skye. The pursuit was given up due to the car's "excessive" speed. He was also accused of stealing two further cars in 2017 - two traced to him by his fingerprints. Plus, there was a further "pending" cartheft charge, the court was told. He'd also failed to appear at court in November for breaching his corrections order. Police opposed bail due to Matwiejewski's

"unacceptable risk" of re-offending, failing to turn up to court and endangering public safety. Matwiejewski's prior offences included multiple car thefts, driving offences, burglaries, deceptions and correction order breaches, Act Sgt Kahan said. "My client has quite the criminal history," Matwiejewski's lawyer conceded. Matwiejewski applied for bail three days before he was listed for screening at Dandenong Drug Court. He had awaited the opportunity and intended to plead guilty since 22 January, his lawyer said. He had been in remand for the past 167 days, the court heard. The lawyer said Matwiejewski would live and work with a close relative, and accept a night curfew if granted bail. In rejecting bail, magistrate Jack Vandersteen said "there's nothing there, nothing to reduce the risk to an acceptable level". "It's too serious offending." Mr Vandersteen noted Matwiejewski was on a corrections order for 12 counts of car theft during much of the offending. It was lucky that the collision in Cranbourne West wasn't worse, Mr Vandersteen said. He added that a drug treatment order - with psychologists, counsellors, judicial monitoring and drug testing - was the "best thing" for Matwiejewski when released into the community. "It's probably the most supportive order for a person with a drug addiction. "He's just going to have to bide his time." Matwiejewski was remanded to appear at a Dandenong Drug Court screening on 17 May.

A man who threw a flaming rag onto the doorstep of his ex-partner's Cranbourne West home has been refused bail. After burning the front door, the 32-yearold man allegedly threw the burning material into bushes in front of the home during the 20 December incident. He then kicked in a security door and smashed a front window with his hand, Dandenong Magistrates' Court heard. The force of the strike scattered glass far into the lounge room, magistrate Jack Vandersteen noted. The uninvited visit in December was in breach of an intervention order protecting his former partner of 11 years and their two children. He made various threats that he wanted his children back, prosecutor Senior Constable Jaimie Jeffs told the court. Earlier that afternoon, the man - a junior

soccer coach - allegedly threatened the woman in her car at a soccer club car park. "Enjoy having sleepless nights," he said - telling her he knew where she lived and worked. The man told police that he'd drunk himself "silly" prior to his Cranbourne West attack after not receiving a response to his request for his children to sleep over. He didn't remember much about the incident, his lawyer told the court on 14 May. Mr Vandersteen noted that one of the primary-school aged sons had started sleeping with a baseball bat on-hand out of fear of his father's return. Mr Vandersteen deferred sentencing the man, pending a Forensicare psychiatric report into his behaviour. The man was remanded to appear at Dandenong Magistrates' Court on 13 July.

Councils on the ball The City of Casey will be the host of one of Australia’s premier football facilities if Team 11 is granted entry into the A-League in the 2019/20 season. Boys and girls from the south-east of Victoria will have a pathway to the professional ranks with the City of Casey committing up to $23.8 million to ensure Casey Fields has a training and administration base, which would house the region’s very own A-League and W-League club. Preparations are well and truly taking place at the Cranbourne East site, with the aim to have the facility ready to go by October 2019.

The Cake Stop

46-50 Old Princes Hwy Beaconsfield

The first stage will include a $18 million community facility, boasting three synthetic pitches, a main turf pitch, and an eight-change room pavilion. The City of Casey has pledged $13 million to stage one, dependant on a successful application to the Victorian Government’s Growth Areas Infrastructure Contribution (GAIC) Fund, which is nearing completion. If successful, the turf pitch would be scheduled for completion by July 2019 and the synthetic pitches and pavilion due to be erected by November 2019. Temporary accommodation will be on site by mid next year. Regardless of whether the region is granted an A-League licence, the community facility will be going ahead. The second stage is predicated to the success of the Team 11’s A-League bid, which would be the elite training facility hosting the men’s, women’s and junior academy sides. The high-performance centre, which will be the rival of any professional sporting base in the country, is projected to cost $20.8 million, with the City of Casey committed to matching dollar-for-dollar funding from either government or private sources. An application has been made to the Australian Government’s Regional Growth Fund, with a detailed design process currently underway. City of Casey Mayor Geoff Ablett said the funding announcement epitomised his council’s determination to see Team 11’s A-League and W-League bid succeed. Councillor Ablett said the Casey Fields Regional Football Centre would be of benefit to the entire community, with accessibility from all corners of the south-east far greater than other current professional pathways. “This elite standard facility is for the entire regions soccer community, to be shared by community clubs and schools, providing

It’s a large area, a lot of people and football is at the heart of it with a lot of different cultures and backgrounds represented,” Bolton said. The announcement comes off the back of Team 11’s plans to build a stadium in the heart of Greater Dandenong.

Cardinia Shire Mayor Cr Collin Ross said there were many benefits for local businesses to be a part of the awards program. “These awards are a great opportunity for local businesses to review and reflect on their business through the application process and to receive publicity, network and establish relationships and gain feedback from industry experts,” Cr Ross said. “The winners will share in $13,000 in prizes, so I encourage all local business operators to get their applications in."

FOCUS ON … MEDICALLY SPEAKING

Nurses head for Nepal St John of God Health Care actively seeks employees who can uphold the organisation's values of hospitality, compassion, respect, justice and excellence. So when nurses, Tess Matthews, Natalie Mason, Madeline White and Bridget Adams declared they were going to Nepal as part of a 30-day nursing program to help communities with limited access to medical services, St John of God Berwick Hospital got right behind them. "These young ladies not only uphold these values in the working environment, they are literally living them both professionally and personally as well," acting CEO of St John of God Berwick Hospital Lisa Evans said. "It's a testament to the good character of the caregivers we're fortunate enough to have working with us." In addition to flight costs and the $2300 they each have to pay to join the Nurses in Action Program, the nurses need to individually raise $2200 as part of a donation to Nepal's medical needs in order to participate. So far the team has raised roughly a third of their overall target with a little over $3000 raised to date. However, they are still a long way from the $8800 goal. In order to raise further funds, St John of God Berwick Hospital is hosting a Nepalese BBQ for its caregivers. They will also be raffling off a beautiful hand-made quilt which was donated to the hospital by a team of local quilters.

Nurses Tess Matthews, Natalie Mason, Madeline White and Bridget Adams are heading to Nepal to help communities with limited access to medical services. The Nurses in Action (NIA) program is a specialised, skilled volunteer program for qualified health professionals. The program's objective is to build local capacity in improving health services to rural communities living in extreme poverty who would not be able to access it otherwise. NIA volunteers work in local medical clinics, hospitals, mountain villages, women's shelters, palliative sheds, schools, children's homes, monasteries, juvenile prisons and orphanages. To learn more about how to help get these nurses to Nepal, please contact St John of God Berwick Hospital's marketing manager, Lisa Carman, on 8784 5000.

Keeping an eye on kidneys Urologist Philip McCahy of the Melbourne Urology Centre believes that kidney cancers are one of the more challenging areas for a modern urologist to deal with. Mr McCahy explained that before the readily available ultrasound scans that are seen today, many patients presented very late to their doctor. This made problems such as a painful large lump in the tummy and associated blood in the water a common issue. Nowadays, an ultrasound scan is performed for many reasons and the kidneys are routinely reviewed. Small lumps are being found and the question becomes how to deal with them. “By definition, a small renal mass is a solid lump less than 4cm in diameter,” Mr McCahy said. “We know that up to 80% of these will be cancers but the majority are very slow growing and in elderly patients may never cause any trouble.” Mr McCahy said a special CT with contrast is likely to be almost diagnostic. “In these circumstances, it may be quite legitimate to monitor the lump with regular ultrasound scans and only consider treatment if there is a major change,” Mr McCahy said. “In younger patients, or those with rapidly enlarging tumours, a biopsy may be recommended or surgical treatment offered. Most operations nowadays can be performed either through telescopes (laparoscopy) or with robotic assistance. “If possible only the lump is removed (a partial nephrectomy), though sometimes, either because of size or position, the whole kidney needs to removed (a radical nephrectomy). Fortunately, we have a backup kidney, so there is mostly no change to overall kidney function. “Surgeons are increasingly trained in sub-

Urologist Philip McCahy of the Melbourne Urology Centre. specialised areas and laparoscopic/robotic operations need dedicated skills. As a stone surgeon I do not get involved in these operations but my colleagues Tony De Sousa and Shekib Shahbaz offer a first class service at Casey Hospital and in the local private hospitals.” Philip McCahy is also a consultant Urologist at Casey Hospital in Berwick.

Early detection is key with skin cancer Sun Patrol Skin Cancer Clinic warns that two in three Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer before the age of 70. Sun Patrol Clinic's Dr Michael Safaie explained that Australia's harsh climate and exposure to UV rays can damage skin which can develop into several types of skin cancers. "Not all skin cancers are the same, however, there are three common types," he said. "Basal cell carcinomas - the most common type amongst people with pale skin are tumours in the cells that produce the top layer of skin. These are typically located in areas of high exposure to sun. "Less common, however, a more dangerous form of skin cancer, are Melanomas, which most commonly appear on the face, back and lower legs, with 1 in 29 Australians developing a Melanoma in their lifetime. "Lastly, Squamous Cell Carcinomas gener-

ally start to appear on sun-damaged skin from the age of 40 onwards and are tumours of the top layer of skin. If left undetected, these cancers can spread and become deadly."

Dr Fergin says that with summer over, now is the perfect time to repair the freckles or pigmentation that appear on exposed skin on the face, chest and hands.

Due to the prevalence of such skin cancers and the risks of these going undetected, annual skin checks are recommended.

“Photo rejuvenation is one of the newest therapies in laser, and gives great results with minimal down time.

"With early detection, 90% of cases can be treated under local anaesthetic at Sun Patrol," Dr Safaie said.

“Photo rejuvenation with radio frequency technologies applies small amounts of heat safely into the dermis leading to remodelling of collagen and elastin, which, in turn, leads to plumping of the skin.

"Qualified doctors at Sun Patrol can conduct thorough checks of the entire skin surface to check for signs of any skin cancers or areas of concern." Sun Patrol Skin Cancer Clinic in Officer is located within Arena Shopping Centre, T2 6/4 Cardinia Road in Officer. For more information, call Dr Michael Safaie on 1300sunpatrol (1300 786 728).

“The epidermis also tightens giving the treated skin a smoother, more youthful appearance."

SPORT

Rays rush past Ranges By Hayley Wildes The Dandenong Stingrays remain on top of the TAC Cup ladder with a 5-1 record after a dominant win over the Eastern Ranges at Shepley Oval on Saturday afternoon. The Ranges got off to a flying start, kicking the first goal of the game, but the Rays responded by kicking five of the next six majors. First quarter goals to Jake Frawley and Corey Ellison were critical in helping the Rays stay well within reach early and they went into quarter time with a two-point lead. After a tight first quarter, the Rays lifted their intensity in the second quarter and an early goal to Bailey Schmidt set the wheels in motion. While the Rays were controlling the play and locked the ball in their forward half, they were wasteful in front of goal, scoring three behinds before a Lachlan McDonnell major finally rewarded the hard work being done higher up the ground. Bailey Williams and Matthew Cottrell both slotted majors in the second half of the quarter to give the Rays a 22-point half time lead. To the Ranges' credit, they came out firing after half time and kicked the first two goals of the third to cut the lead to just 10 points. When Riley Smith launched a long bomb for the Ranges' sixth goal, it looked like the game was set up for a thrilling final 40 minutes of play.

Corey Ellison booted three goals in the Rays win over the Ranges. 180742

Picture: ROB CAREW

The Rays had other ideas though. Three goals in quick succession in the final minutes of the quarter had the Rays on top by 30 points at the final change. This late quarter burst zapped the energy and flair out of their Ranges opponents. Campbell Hustwaite and Hayden Young were asserting themselves on the contest as their composure and sublime skills shone through in the clinches. Three goals to none in the final quarter saw the Rays run out 52-point winners, 13.13 (91) to 6.3 (39). Six unanswered goals to finish the game once again showcased Dandenong's ability to run over opponents. Hustwaite and Young led from the front, while Jake Frawley was also impressive all day. Bailey Schmidt, Matthew Cottrell (two goals each) and Corey Ellison (three goals) were dangerous up forward and converted when it mattered most. The Rays' ability to respond when they were challenged in the third quarter was the highlight of the day. It wasn't just the stars who stood up either - the total team effort was simply too much for the Eastern Ranges. Next up, Round 7 presents an immense challenge to the Rays. A first versus second battle against the Murray Bushrangers, who also possess a 5-1 record, in Craigieburn on Saturday afternoon is a mouth-watering match-up

Richmond returns to play at Beaconsfield By Hayley Wildes

Jack Graham, who played a key role in Richmond's AFL premiership, in action at Holm Picture: ROB CAREW Park last year. 170314

The VFL Tigers are heading to Beaconsfield. Those who want a great day of football action will want to get to Holm Park Reserve in Beaconsfield on Saturday. The day begins at 9am with under-19 interleague action between the South East Football Netball League and AFL Yarra Ranges, before the seniors face off at 10:50am. Then Richmond takes on Sandringham at 2:10pm in what promises to be a cracking VFL contest. Richmond has built a strong connection with the Cardinia Shire over recent years and the team has fond memories of playing at Holm Park in 2017. The Tigers defeated Casey last season in Beaconsfield and Richmond coach Craig McRae talked about that experience. "We really enjoyed coming out to the Cardinia Shire - it's important to the Richmond Football Club." He said.

"Along with Melbourne, we've both got a lot of supporters in the Cardinia Shire and it's a good opportunity to come out and show our appreciation. We've got good memories and the facilities are awesome, so we're looking forward to it." The Tigers are off to a flying start in season 2018, much like the AFL squad, having dropped just one game. And there are plenty of stars lining up in the VFL for Richmond fans to watch out for. "We've got a lot of young, aspiring AFL players and there's some player's people would know like Brandon Ellis - a premiership player - who has played in the VFL the last two weeks, Anthony Miles and then our first year draftees." McRae said. "We'd love to think that in the last two years in particular, our VFL program has been a solid foundation for our AFL success - there are a lot of players developing, waiting for their opportunity. Last week we had 14 AFL players and there could be more potentially back from in-

jury this week." A big potential inclusion for the Beaconsfield match-up is premiership star and excitement machine, Daniel Rioli. Rioli hasn't played since the AFL Grand Final due to a broken left foot and has been listed as probable to play limited minutes this week. Richmond's AFL game plan is built around pressure and it won them a premiership in 2017. McRae said fans can expect that same manic intensity on Saturday. "Yes, every week [we want to bring that pressure]. We mirror everything that the AFL program does - we mirror our game plan, our preparation, our coaching structure - it's all the same as the AFL." He said. "We take great pride in that and if you come and watch the VFL, you'll see the same stuff." Richmond members receive free admission all day, while entry is $10 for adult non-members and $5 for child non-members. 12386576-EPJ19-18

Warriors claim a pair of Big V wins By Hayley Wildes The Pakenham Warriors recorded a pair of dominant wins and a tough loss in Round 8 Big V action. The Youth League 2 Women continued their impressive season with a clinical 91-55 win over the Sherbrooke Suns on Saturday evening at Cardinia Life. The Warriors took control of the game from the opening tip and were never troubled. Their defence was at its smothering best, forcing Sherbrooke into a whopping 43 turnovers. In her best performance of the season, Samantha Neil (23 points, 9 rebounds, 8 steals, 6 assists, 2 blocks) proved that she can take over games at this level. Ellie Coutts (20 points, 8 steals, 7 assists, 6 rebounds, 4 blocks) meanwhile, was simply sublime and is putting together a stellar season. Coutts' all-round domination is something that Warriors fans have become accustomed to. She has posted ridiculous stat lines all season long, including a triple-double in the season-opener against Frankston. The Warriors now boast a 7-1 record and sit second on the ladder, behind the undefeated Casey Cavaliers. The Youth League 2 Men took on the

Frankston Blues at home on Saturday night and were unable to extend their five-game win streak. Ned Weideman (21 points, 9 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals) did his best to get his team over the line, but Pakenham couldn't match the team effort from Frankston, falling 69-81. Gryf Pugh (18 rebounds, 10 points) and Josh Cleary (20 points) led Frankston to the win. The Warriors didn't dwell on that disappointment though, rebounding with a massive win over the Wallan Panthers the next day. They put together a complete performance and with six players scoring in double figures, Pakenham overpowered Wallan to claim a resounding 107-54 win on the road. Lee Belton (19 points) led the way in the scoring, while Weideman (11 points, 10 rebounds, 3 assists) backed up from his impressive performance a day earlier to post a double-double. The Warriors currently sit fourth on the ladder with a 7-3 record. The Division 2 Men had a bye in round 8 and will return to action on Saturday night at Cardinia Life against Craigieburn. The Youth League 2 Men also play on Saturday night at home, facing the Western Port Steelers from 5pm. The Youth League 2 Women travel to Blackburn on Sunday afternoon to take on the Vikings.

The preparations for Saturday’s massive Interleague clash with AFL Yarra Ranges are almost finalised, with the South East FNL reducing its squad down to 27 players. The final squad - likely to be named later this week - will be dependent on the VFL players in the squad and whether they will be selected for state level football on the weekend. South East coach Rhys Nisbet is thrilled with the squad he has assembled, and can’t wait to get out there and test the side’s mettle. “We can’t wait - we’ve had a really good response from the players and coaches this year, and we were conscience of picking the best side we could, and we got that, so it’s great,” he said. “We’re really keen to get out there and show our stuff.” In what looks like a high quality group of players, the most notable name on the list is that of Cranbourne champion Marc Holt, who got through his first game back unscathed on the weekend. Superstars Madi Andrews, Ash Smith, Brad Scalzo and Trent Cody all appear to be locks to line up on Saturday, as they look to bounce back from last year’s 18-point defeat to Hampden. But the most interesting and fascinating part of what is set to be a blockbuster clash is the fact that both competitions are likely to be one in 2019 as talks of divisional football ramps up, something not lost on Nisbet. “We’ve thought about it a little bit, it’s something playing on our minds - we’re trying to stay focused on what we’re doing and what we’re about and hopefully we can get the right result,” he said. The clash between the two competitions will begin at 10.50am at Holm Park in Beaconsfield, and is the curtain raiser for the VFL clash between Richmond and Sandringham.
