As the community helplessly watches on as bushfires ravage the country, local organisations and individuals alike have come together to raise funds for those impacted by the disaster. From a mass boot camp held in Beaconsfield to an Officer man pledging to walk over 50 kilometres and a call for farmers to donate hay, the community continues to shine, doing their bit for those needing it most.But it's not just the adults getting involved, with some of our littlest minds coming up with creative concepts to raise a buck or two.

amount of funding, being $1500, to be put towards additional IT resources, while Heritage was given the same amount to purchase new IT equipment. Emerald Preschool also received $1419 for additional IT resources. The Minaret Early Learning Centre and technology funding is part of the State Government's $33.6 million investment in the 2019/20 Budget for the Children's Facilities Capital Program and Inclusive Kindergarten Facilities Program. On top of the distributed funding, Pakenham Heights and Beaconsfield kindergartens will soon feature more inclusive playgrounds. Pakenham Heights Kindergarten received $94,000 to upgrade to accessible car park spaces so participants are as close as possible to the accessible public entrance which will feature widened internal and external doors. There will also be an access ramp leading to

the outdoor environment, an accessible path to the sandpit, and a sensory garden/seating area. With an $18,354 grant, acoustic wall panels will be installed in the two rooms at Beaconsfield Kindergarten on O'Neil Road, making the rooms quieter - providing a better learning space for all children. The Victorian Budget 2019/20 included $6 million for the Inclusive Kindergartens Facilities Program. "These upgrades will make a big difference in ensuring children of all abilities attending kindergarten in these locations get the support they need to thrive," Education Minister James Merlino said. "Making Victoria the Education State starts with early learning years, which is why we are making unprecedented investments in early childhood education." 12425088-FA36-19

Families throughout Cardinia will soon benefit from a kindergarten funding boost from the State Government. Bridgewood Integrated Children's Centre in Officer, along with a number of nearby early education centres, received exciting news from Premier Daniel Andrews at the end of last year. The new integrated children's centre received funding to provide at least 66 kindergarten places, integrated into long day care, maternal child health services, allied health services for early years, family services, and a range of other community centre offerings. The funding will come out of the State Government's Children's Facilities Capital Program which comprises of $21.1 million in capital grant funding. "Kinder is so important for a child's educa-

tion and their opportunities in life - but to get the most of it, they need good facilities," Mr Andrews said. It was also a lucky time for Minaret Early Learning Centre in Officer, which received a whopping $500,000 to upgrade its facilities. The project includes the refurbishment of the existing junior primary classroom to create an early learning centre for three and fouryear-old's, providing additional kindergarten places for local families. A further 400 kindergarten services throughout the state will benefit from information technology grants of up to $1500 to buy items such as desktops, laptops and tablets, including Bayles Kindergarten, Emerald Preschool, St Clare's Early Learning Centre in officer and Heritage College Early Learning Officer.

Mother-to-be turned away By Brendan Rees The family of expectant mother who was in pain and waited hours at Casey Hospital - only to be told to go home due to it being "totally full" - are fuming. Vanessa Haddad said she sat by her sisterin-law - who asked to withhold her name - in the emergency department of the hospital in Berwick for seven hours to see a doctor on 15 December. "The hospital was chockers; there were parents out in the corridor sitting with their children even on the floor," Ms Haddad said. "No one was moving; no one was moving in or out really." Ms Haddad said her sister-in-law had experienced a miscarriage and was hoping to get a prescription for her pain but waited between 7.30pm and 2.30am. "We did tell them our concerns that night ... she had a heaving feeling on her chest, she found it hard breathing and stuff like that. They weren't too concerned with her at all when triage saw her they told her to go back out to the waiting room," she said. At one point, Ms Haddad said her sister-inlaw "just looked at me and goes 'I just can't wait any more here.' She became very nervous like agitated a bit. "One of the doctors came out about two o'clock in the morning and said: 'Look, I hate to tell everybody but you need to go and find somewhere else or see your GP in the morning. We're totally full. We can't take any more patients ... there's only three doctors in rotation,' she said. Ms Haddad said their family were devastated by the ordeal. "They had already named the child; they told their three younger children ... the kids were very upset when they found out," she said.

A woman who experienced a miscarriage had to wait seven hours at Casey Hospital to see a doctor - only to be told to go home. Ms Haddad said she didn't blame the hospital staff but said the public hospital system was "unbelievably failing" due to a staff shortage. A Monash Health spokesperson said all its emergency department patients were seen in order of clinical urgency and apologised "for any distress experienced by our patients." Shadow Health Minister Georgie Crozier said hospital wait times had "blown out" under Daniel Andrews, putting "enormous pressure" on hospitals and placing the lives of patients at risk. "Daniel Andrews' mismanagement of the state budget is having real and tragic conse-

quences for Victorian patients," she said. Health Minister Jenny Mikakos said the government realised "there are times" when waiting in an emergency department could be stressful for patients and their families. "We are delivering record funding to each and every hospital in Victoria for doctors and nurses to care for record numbers of patients and we are getting on with completing the massive $135 million expansion of Casey Hospital," she said. "We won't be lectured to by Georgie Crozier and the Liberals, who delivered nothing for patients in Casey and continue to stand-by while their mates in Canberra rip $305 million out

of our hospitals for services our doctors and nurses have already delivered." Gembrook state Liberal MP Brad Battin has called on the State Government to investigate the incident involving Ms Haddad's sister-inlaw to "ensure it never happens again and give confidence to the community in the health system." Casey Hospital's redevelopment is reaching the final stages of construction and will consist of 128 new inpatient beds and the hospital's first intensive care unit in the new clinical tower, as well as six new operating theatres, a new day surgery unit, along with an upgraded pharmacy, pathology, back-of-house areas and expanded parking facilities.

Planning shake-up By Brendan Rees Casey councillors will no longer determine planning matters as they give up their rights to vote on planning applications in the wake of the IBAC corruption investigations. At an extraordinary special meeting on New Year's eve, councillors voted to establish a new Special Planning Committee and therefore relinquish their planning decision rights. It comes as the IBAC Operation Sandon inquiry alleged dirty deals at Casey Council in relation to planning and property development decisions. The Special Committee will include two independent members whose appointments will be considered at council's meeting on 21 January. However, councillors voted to have Cr Rex Flannery as the only councillor to act as council's delegate on the committee. Only seven of the 11 elected councillors attended the meeting as it seeks to "provide community assurance in the integrity of decision making". Mayor Susan Serey said the Special Committee, which would be established under the Local Government Act 1989, will have delegated decision-making authority under the Planning and Environment Act to deal with about four per cent of planning applications. The majority of other planning applications will continue to be decided by council officers under delegated authority. "It will not replace our role as councillors or take away the community's voice," she said. "This enables council to fulfil its obligations as a responsible authority in a timely fashion, protects applicant and objector rights and protects the integrity of decisions being made whilst the IBAC investigations are underway. "Residents will still be able to approach their ward councillors or Cr Flannery should

they have concerns around specific planning applications, which will be provided to the Special Committee. The right to object to VCAT for applicants and objectors means no one's voice or rights are silenced. "We need to ensure that we are meeting our obligations around planning applications being considered in a timely matter and are being processed in the quickest possible way, which the Special Committee will allow us to do," Cr Serey said. It is anticipated that the Special Committee will meet monthly, starting in February 2020. Meetings of the Special Committee would be open to the public. Cr Rosalie Crestani was the only councillor who opposed the new committee. "I believe all elected leaders have a right to speak as representatives for the people and my heart is to avoid causing offence in doing so," Cr Crestani said in a Facebook post. Casey Residents and Ratepayers Association spokesman Brendan Browne said the Special Committee was a "poor substitute for a properly functioning council." "We now have an absurd situation where public confidence is so low, that council is voting to remove 10 Councillors from planning decisions," he said. "At the same time they are trying to convince us that they are doing their jobs. "The only workable solution is for the State Government to dismiss the Council. We need administrators to start cleaning up the mess as soon as possible," Mr Browne said. A spokeswoman of the Save the Casey Foothills Association, Rosalie Counsell, said council's motion to surrender councillors' right to vote on planning applications was "far from ideal". "Who proposed a takeover in the first place?

And why did Casey's governance department recommend forming a committee with no details regarding size, make up, qualifications, transparency, powers, financial arrangements, checks and balances, or community input ramifications," she said. "The blatancy of this suspect move serves only to illustrate the urgency of government intervention," she said. Casey ratepayer Rita Menheere said the new committee had all the "hallmarks of a process designed to pull the wool over our eyes and keep control of the corrupted planning process." "We have to call it out ... the majority of wayward councillors get to decide everything about this committee, and can abandon it at any time if its members start making 'unwanted' decisions," she said. Meanwhile, Casey's manager of governance Holly De Kretser confirmed an incident whereby faeces had been mailed to one councillor. Cr Sam Aziz's whereabouts is also still unknown. He flew to Egypt late last year prior to the Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission hearings being held which alleged Cr Aziz pocketed $900,000 from property developers. Cr Aziz and Cr Geoff Ablett currently remain elected councillors and continue to receive a councillor allowance. Ms De Kretser said the approved leave of absence for Cr Aziz and Cr Ablett ended on 31 December and the next opportunity for the pair to apply for further leave will be at council's meeting on 21 January. IBAC public hearings into allegations of serious corrupt conduct in relation to planning and property development decisions at the City of Casey council will restart on Monday 2 March.

Tractors set to pull in the crowds By Brendan Rees Big rigs will tear up the track at Tooradin's popular Tooradin Tractor Pull and Truck Show on Saturday 18 January. Held at Rutter Reserve, organisers hope the event will draw more than 5000 people. The day will packed with thrilling activities including modified tractor pulling as well as vintage tractors, junior mower pulling, burnout car displays and more. "If the weather's good we've got a couple of new attractions," Tooradin Tractor Pull president Allyn Reeve said. "With a bit of luck it should be a bigger and better show," he said, adding "it certainly is a great family-fun day." "There are 38 tractors and we hope to have a bit over a 100 trucks. We hope to have about 70 to 80 cars," he added. The event will be held from 10am to 10pm. Tickets available at . www.ticketebo.com.au.

Man in hot water for fire ban blaze A 21-year-old Narre Warren man is among four people to be interviewed by Victoria Police for lighting fires during recent periods of total fire bans. The man was interviewed for lighting a fire in a campsite to cook a meal during a period of total fire ban in Paradise Beach and interviewed by police on Saturday 4 January. On Friday 10 January, a 70-year-old Longford woman was also interviewed for lighting a fire in a paddock to burn rubbish during a period of total fire ban in Longford. A 37-year-old Dromana man was interviewed for lighting a fire in a camp area to cook a meal during a period of total fire ban in Clydebank. A 50-year-old Golden Beach man was interviewed for lighting a fire in a fire pit during a period of total fire ban in Golden Beach. It's alleged the man became abusive towards CFA members when they attended to extinguish the fire. All four were released and are expected to be charged at a later date. Police wish to remind the public that no fires can be lit on a total fire ban day without a Section 40 permit from the CFA. Under the CFA Act 1958, it is an offence to light a fire during a total fire ban day without a permit. Penalties for lighting a fire on a total fire ban include maximum 2 years jail or a large fine.

Speed played part in crash Police are appealing for any witnesses or dashcam footage following a collision in Lynbrook on Saturday 11 January. Police believe a Nissan X- Trail with Western Australian plates had been travelling south along South Gippsland Highway from the Dandenong Bypass when it collided with a blue Toyota Corolla about 7.15 am on the South Gippsland Highway and Lynbrook Boulevard. "It is believed the vehicle was being driven erratically and possibly at speed when it collided," a Victoria Police spokesperson said. An Ambulance Victoria spokesperson said a man in his 30s was treated for pelvic and foot injuries and taken to the Aflred Hospital in a stable condition while a woman in her 40s was treated for upper body injuries and taken to the Alfred Hospital in a stable condition. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 or the Casey Police Service Area Eyewatch Facebook page with reference LSC/ 26036.

It’s a ‘band’ aid solution By Brendan Rees When seven-year-old Chanelle of Cranbourne saw the devastation of the bushfires on TV she knew she wanted to make a difference. So she went to her bedroom and began making rainbow lume bracelets to help raise money to support families involved in the fires as well as wildlife shelters. "Chanelle was in her room last Thursday making looms bands and my husband asked what she was doing," proud mum Danielle Frazer said. "Chanelle said 'I'm making loom bands to help the people who have lost their houses.' "As her parents we just had to support this act of kindness. We posted on Facebook and with support from family and friends she has raised $450." Ms Frazer said their minds were blown by the generosity of people. Chanelle will donate half of the funds to FoodBank and World Wide Fund for Nature.

This season's bushfires have been unprecedented in scale and is having a devastating impact on native wildlife and biodiversity. Mobile Wildlife Triage Units are now in place at Bairnsdale, Mallacoota and Corryong along with Wildlife Assessment Teams working on fire grounds based out of Bairnsdale, Orbost and the Budj Bim fire complex. The State Government is providing immediate support for wildlife shelters and foster carers to help cover the costs of food, transport, medicine and enclosures as animals are rescued from bushfire affected areas. Grants of up to $1,000 are now available to shelters and foster carers assisting with the care and rehabilitation of native wildlife impacted by the fires. This is in addition to $200,000 already made available to wildlife rehabilitators this financial year to support their operations Donations to the Victorian Bushfire Appeal can be made online at Community Enterprise Foundation or at any Bendigo Bank branch.

I won't go there now, I'll drive and hour to go to west gippy. Tracy Anne Johnson: It's disgusting, there should be more support, more concern for baby and parents. What a horrible experience. If a mother to be presents herself in emergency with pains in stomach then action should be made asap a separate room for them to sit. It's a very upsetting time. Marianne Mez: This happens at nearly ever hospital to be honest. Private and public. Carlos Mauricio Senel Moreno: That happened to my wife at the dandy hospital 2 years ago. Waited for two hours sitting in plastic chair pretty much baby was lost waiting until a bed become available apparently. It was the most painful experience by far. Disappointed how they treat women there and nothing I could do about it, Melissa Rana: Better to go by ambulance if in a lot pain. Abbi Mae: Not just Casey hospital!

programs to the community, primarily kindergartens and schools. "While the program attracts around 10,000 children each year, around 60 per cent of users are from outside the City of Casey. As the facility receives no other government funding, the cost of the service is being born by Casey ratepayers," Cr Serey said. In order to remain financially viable into the future, Cr Serey said significant expansion of the facility would need to occur. However, its location in the Casey Sports Complex, which is also the site for the proposed East Cranbourne railway station, meant this will not be possible. "The decision has therefore been taken to close the facility and transition to a schoolbased model that will be delivered directly to local schools. "Council remains committed to improving road safety for children, and resources will be redirected to developing the program during 2020 for commencement in first term 2021. We are in the process of contact all our local schools to inform them of this change and to inform them of the new opportunities that will be available for their students," she said. The CFA was engaged in the service review process and council will work with them to determine their future plans for the relocatable buildings they currently have at the site.

From the 2021 school year, the children's road safety program currently delivered at the Casey Safety Village will become an outreach program going directly into local schools. Following a service review of the program, Council resolved at the meeting on 3 December to close the Casey Safety Village, which has operated from its location in the Casey Complex since 2006. The program will continue from the current location for the next 12 months as it transitions to a new delivery model which will service Casey's 79 schools with about 5,000 prep students. The new program will be tailored to each school and include: production of a local Walk to School/Active Travel map and information Prep class Walk and Talk sessions on being a safe pedestrian around schools Prep/parent education sessions with the school crossing supervisor and Lottie (the school crossing Mascot) review of parking signage and school crossings.

Outside is the original homestead dating back to the early 1900s. The property also boasts a four bay machinery shed, 20’X30’ steel shed with workshop, hay shed, dog pens and yards. There are also manicured lawns, established trees and 6 paddocks, all within convenient reach of the Pakenham CBD.

Mains water is a massive plus, while the property also has a dam. With Dore Road soon to be sealed, this will be the premier location in the area. The privacy and tranquility will make you never want to leave. ●

Parks Victoria is inviting children and their families to unplug from technology and get into nature by joining a Junior Ranger activity this summer school holidays. Park rangers host the free program which offers activities for children aged 6 to 12 and their families. It is designed to give kids a healthy nature fix, inspire curiosity and teach them about Victoria’s wonderful plants, wildlife and amazing natural and cultural heritage. Kids and families can watch tiny critters through microscopes on a Minibeast Discovery, follow clues to discover animals in the bush as a Wildlife Detective, or find out what lies beneath the water in a Rockpool Ramble. Junior Rangers will get their hands dirty playing games, creating masterpieces, exploring streams, catching bugs and rummaging around the beach or bush. They may even visit places that few park visitors ever see. “The Junior Ranger program is a great way to get families outdoors having fun in na-

Kids can explore nature these school holidays by becoming a Junior Ranger. ture together. The variety of activities we run through the Junior Ranger program help teach kids about the natural world around them,’ said Parks Victoria Education and Interpretation Officer, James Adams.

“It’s wonderful to see kids getting out of the lounge room to explore and enjoy Victoria’s beautiful parks. At Parks Victoria, we believe that nature is essential for human health and wellbeing, and everyone should have the opportunity to connect with nature, especially children. “Spending time playing and learning outdoors provides children with developmental benefits such as improved physical and mental health and social connections. All the activities are designed to inspire curiosity.“ All activities are free, but bookings are essential, and children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all sessions. Be the first to know what’s on by signing up to the Junior Ranger Mailing List. Check the website www.juniorrangers.com. au in mid-December for activity locations and dates, and to register your attendance. For more information, call Parks Victoria on 13 1963.

Winner of Warragul Cup La Grand Quality and trainer Darryl Thomas.

Pictures: CLINT ANDERSON

Quality prevails in Cup By Gerard Guthrie and Molly Haines It was a case of second time lucky in a country cup for lightly-raced NSW speedster La Grand Quality when he careered away with the Group 2 Warragul Cup Final (460m) on Saturday night. It was an emotion-charged triumph for trainer Darryl Thomas and owner/breeder Kellie Fogarty, with La Grand Quality surviving two serious car accidents along the path to emulating his superstar sire El Grand Senor, which won the Warragul Cup in 2011. “He’s a tough dog,” Thomas glowed. “He’s pretty mentally strong; you have to be to win these races. “We’re just rapt. I’m pretty lost for words actually.” After breaking the Maitland 450m record in late October at just his ninth start, La Grand

A colourfully dressed local crew enjoying the night with Richmond champion Jack Riewoldt. Quality made a huge impression during the Ballarat Cup series, breaking the 390m track record in a trial, winning his heat and running a close fourth to Western Envoy in the final. La Grand Quality made his next appearance in the Warragul Cup heats and he earned a second crack at a Victorian provincial feature with a near-record 25.40s victory, the second fastest qualifying time behind Hooked On Scotch’s 25.34s.

The Cup Final then changed complexion dramatically with the scratching of Hooked On Scotch, which resulted in Melbourne Cup hero Whiskey Riot ($3.50), La Grand Quality ($3.70) and Bendigo Cup winner Crimson Vixen ($3.90) disputing favouritism. La Grand Quality came out running from box six and after settling second behind Crimson Vixen he had the leader in his crosshairs turning for home. La Grand Quality put paid to Crimson Vixen, drawing clear to score by 2 lengths in 25.63s, improving his impressive record to nine from 14, with Thomas praising his Victorian host Anthony Azzopardi, trainer of beaten favourite Whiskey Riot, which ran fourth. “We needed to beat Whiskey Riot out of the boxes because last time he barrelled us but tonight he didn’t,” said Thomas. “It’s been really good. I’ve got to learn a few

different things off Anthony and it’s been good for the dog. The dog didn’t settle for Ballarat too well but this time he was much better. “It’s not just Anthony. The whole team there took this dog on like one of their own and made it so much easier for me. “I’ve been in greyhounds my whole life. My parents were in the greyhound game but we got out of it and got into the trots. But once it’s in your blood you always come back. “We’ve just got to hope the dog keeps going. His next start will be Capalaba - that’s the plan.” The Warragul Distance Cup (680m) went to $19.50 outsider Seve Rose, trained by SharonLee Chignell, which stormed home to grab the $10,000 winner’s purse, grabbing Sandown Cup winner Rajasthan ($2.60) in the final bounds in 39.13s.

Pakenham push the boundaries for a wonderful cause By Tyler Lewis The Pakenham Cricket Club went to and over the boundary for well-needed relief. Before the first round back after the holidays break, Pakenham announced they would donate $5 for every four and $10 for every six one of its players hit on Saturday throughout the West Gippsland Cricket Assocaition to the bushfire relief that has touched the hearts of every Australian. In addition to the fours and sixes fundraiser, the club offered $50 for every win the Lions collected on Saturday. After a tremendous day for the cricket club, the Lions raised $1070 for the bushfires that had destroyed kilometres of homes, land and heartbreakingly taken the lives of Australia's trademark wildlife. First XI star, Dale Tormey blasted 70 on the weekend, which included four boundaries and three maximums, adding $50 to the kitty off his own blade. Pakenham Cricket Club president Phil Anning said the club had no hesitation in raising money for a cause that has touched the entire nation. 14 STAR NEWS

"We see ourselves as a bit of a community club," he said. "We decided we would come up with something that would be a bit more novel than making just a cash donation and try to raise money through incentive for the players. "I don't think there would be anybody who hasn't been affected in some way with what has happened nationwide, we just felt as a club it was important to show our support for the communities that have been affected." Anning said while the club was raising some well-needed funds for a great cause, players and clubmen found opponents within themselves to see which side was the most generous with bat in hand. "I think there was a bit of banter between the players from each respective side," he said. "It was a challenge to see which side could raise the most money through fours and sixes. "What we did to get the incentive for each side was for the side that raised the most money they all got a free drink on the club. "It gave them a bit of incentive to go out and have a bit of fun, firstly win the game, and secondly if the boundaries come then that was a bonus for our fundraiser."

Swans batsman Nathan Freitag once again found some runs but his side fell short of victory on Saturday against Footscray. Pictures: GARY SISSONS

Swans spearhead Nathan Lambden played his 100th Victorian Premier first XI match on Saturday, snaring two wickets.

Swans undone by Russ By Nick Creely Casey-South Melbourne suffered an untimely loss to Footscray on Saturday in Victorian Premier Cricket as it looks to keep pace with the top-eight. In a 32-per over match reduced off the back of rain the previous day, the Dogs had a bat first after play finally got underway at 1.30pm, and it was spearhead and milestone man Na-

than Lambden (2/37) who broke through off the first ball of the game. Lambden - playing his 100th first XI match at Premier level - removed dangerous opener Dan Sartori, but the Dogs, one of the most potent batting groups in the competition, quickly went on the rebuild through stars Dean Russ and Travis Dean. Combining rock-solid defense with still a mind firmly fixed on keeping the scoreboard

out, the Dogs just had the answers and the momentum on their side. With 11 points separating the Swans from eighth position, the group will be needing a victory against the struggling Monash Tigers on Saturday to stay in touch with the finals race. But there could be plenty of reinforcements if the Swans elect to shake up the side ahead of Saturday, with the seconds enjoying a dominant win against the Dogs at Casey Fields. In particular, important all-rounder Lachie Sperling (50 and 2/11) could be finally set to make his return after a slower than anticipated return from injury, talented opener Ash Chandrasinghe is banging down the door for a debut after notching up 44 not out, while spinners Jonah Serong and Ashvin Adihetty could help bolster the spin department if needed.

ticking along, the pair added 87 before Jordan Hammond (1/33) managed to snare Dean for 38, another prized scalp in a promising start to his career at the level. Despite the Swans - largely through the spin of Luke Wells (3/26) who continued his strong form with the ball in hand - finding regular wickets, the Dogs got itself into a strong position for the win, finishing 7/171 with Russ' 67 providing plenty of headaches for the visitors. Needing close to a run-a-ball in the chase, the Swans got off to a bright start through Luke Wells (23) and Nathan Freitag (36), but the required run rate and the strangling effort with the ball provided by Russ (4/24) - who backed up his starring effort with the bat - saw the Swans rolled for 153 with seven balls to spare. Despite the Swans managing to string together some small partnerships, with Joel Mitchell (22), Chris Benedek (22) and Jordan Wyatt (13) looking threatening before getting

AFL Gippsland has announced Gumbuya World as the official Academy partner for 2020. In conjunction with both the Hawthorn Football Club and Gippsland Power, the Academy operates across six satellite locations within the Gippsland Region. The program is revered as the most elite training program on offer across the under-12, under-13 and under-14 age groups, with the regions talent identification and development demonstrated recently, with Gippsland totalling eight local draftees at the 2019 NAB AFL Draft. Gumbuya World - an extremely popular eastern Victorian venue - represents a perfect alignment with the Academy, with many children already spending their school holidays attending the theme park. After a $10 million expansion and the doubling of the size of its water park, Oasis Springs, Gumbuya World recently recorded record-breaking crowds over the summer holiday period. The deal will assist Academy operations which have ramped up in 2020. On offer to participants is the opportunity for coaches to work with former Western Bulldogs coach Brendan McCartney, a full-time Academy operations manager to facilitate the program, additional game development staff to attend sessions and assist coaches in delivering training drills, additional equipment and the 2020 Academy player apparel. AFL Gippsland commercial and football

operations manager Don Harley said the Academy was excited to partner with the rapidly growing company based out of Tynong North. "AFL Gippsland and, by extension, the Hawthorn and Gippsland Power Football Clubs, are delighted to welcome Gumbuya World as the Academy partner for 2020," he said. "In addition to facilitating the development of the most talented children in Gippsland, we also recognise that junior football is about creating fond memories of playing sport with one's friends. "There is no organisation more synonymous with amusement and enjoyment in our region than Gumbuya World." The program will fall under the direction of the AFL Gippsland NGA coordinator, Brandon Milburn, Hawthorn NGA coordinator Nathan Foley, Gippsland Power talent manager Scott McDougal, Gippsland Power coaching director Rhett McLennan, and AFL Gippsland's Richard Black and Don Harley, and Football Development managers George Morgan, Paul Vaughan, Michael Roberts. The program will run across eight weeks between 10 February and 30 March. Clubs across all corners of Gippsland will be invited to nominate their most talented players across each of the age groups. The training program is set to benefit all participants of football in Gippsland after coaches and players return to their community clubs, after the program's conclusion, and pass on learned knowledge and skills.
