Taroona Community Association news


As the days become shorter and the nights lengthen, we have time to reflect on all the jolly good things we have happening in our community. It’s time to sit on the couch with a cup of tea in front of a warm fire and read the winter issue of the Taroona News.


The most exciting news is about the inaugural Taroona Art Trail, an initiative of the Taroona Environment Network, which is to be held on Saturday 19 November featuring works by artists and community groups. This will be an exciting event not to be missed, which will build community spirit, stimulate creativity and celebrate Taroona’s beautiful coastal environment. Come along to an information session on 30 June to learn more! Did you know that the local Taroona under 11s Princes Soccer Team have featured in The Mercury recently after inviting Princess Mary of Denmark to be the team patron? They also invited Prince Christian to join them in a soccer game when he next visits Taroona. We’ll all be there to watch that game! The Chiton, our St Ayles rowing skiff, has been very busy hosting community rowing mornings off Taroona Beach. It was even seen at the New Norfolk Autumn festival with a hardy crew rowing in the upper reaches of the Derwent. I would like to say that they rowed all the way from Taroona, but it was the sturdy new trailer, funded by the Tasmanian Community Fund, that assisted in the boat’s transport to the event! Once again we have a diversity of news about events and Race you to the Alum Cliffs! happenings, from the Giant Book Sale in mid-July, a fermenting workshop, sports events and club updates, TEN working bees, school reunions, solstice events and more. This is what true community is about. Jill Hickie , Co-Chair, TCA

Taroona Coastal Rowing Update

Sweeping down the face of the season’s wave towards the shortest day, nature continues to fling a melange of flood, wind, massive swells, snow, rain and sleet and we lucky residents of Taroona realise that we have had it better than many. Not surprisingly Chiton has spent most of the past weekends out of the water, but we have still managed a few excursions of late to report on. Despite our Come

and Try Coastal Rowing event competing with the Kingborough Council’s Love Living Locally Festival we still managed to introduce three enthusiastic crew loads to the pleasures of coastal rowing along our beautify Alum Cliffs. Many thanks to TCA committee members who catered for the event. Enjoyed by all. The TCA Committee pulling together

Tasmanian Community Fund. We should point out that the extremely generous grant from the Tasmanian Community Fund has allowed us to attend such events in our new trailer, which now also sports a weatherproof trailerable PVC trailer cover sewn up by Channel Canvas of Margate. In the coming weeks we will start work on the third part of our grant – the construction of competition oars suitable for next year’s 2017 St. Ayles Skiff Regatta at Franklin.

St Ayles Skiff Regatta 2017 Franklin. Once again, Women on Water of Franklin are planning to repeat the success of the 2015 event which will follow the 2017 Wooden Boat Festival on the week end of 18–19 February. As further details are released, all are encouraged to support the highly enjoyable fundraising events. We will keep you informed of these in future editions of Taroona News.

St Ayles Skiff Community Rowing Association of Australia Incorporated. The efforts of a small team led by Patrick Groot of Warrnambool have now succeeded in registering a national organisation to further the development of Coastal Rowing in Australia. The association’s agreed purposes will now be included in the model rules for the incorporated organisation. As winter now takes full grip, we will still attempt a Sunday row when conditions are suitable. If you’re interested, let me know. Till next time – Damian Devlin,

New Norfolk Autumn Festival Once again, fierce weather was brewing in the lead up to this event, but the strategy of driving up to New Norfolk for a reccie paid off. Rowing upstream into a stiff westerly and current we found our way upstream like a minnow darting between the reed and boulder. Although we originally planned to travel in convoy with a piner’s punt and two steam powered craft from the Wooden Boat Guild, we eventually set off alone to see if the other craft could catch us. The 2 kilometre row from Millbrook Rise took us to Tynwald Park in just under 50 minutes where energy levels were restored by sampling the tasty treats from the stalls set amongst the poplars. This really was a sweet event on the day and we are sure to return next year. With the stiff breeze at our backs and now rowing with the current, the return trip took a mere 15 minutes. Rob measured our speed at 13kph at one stage!

The Taroona Princes seek royal patronage The Taroona Under 11 boys soccer team has asked Crown Princess Mary of Denmark to be their team patron. Princess Mary is an alumni of Taroona High school and, as her first-born child Prince Christian is the same age as the boys, they have also invited him to be an honorary team member next time he visits Hobart. You can see an entertaining You Tube video of Maxy Johnstone making the official request speech here: < watch?v=Js9QOvRwX4k>, and you can also read about it in The Mercury: Well done to the boys for pulling such regal faces (complete with mouthguards) and for being such photogenic ambassadors – how could the Princess and Prince possibly resist the request?? A signed request letter has been posted to Princess Mary and the Taroona Princes look forward to a royal reply shortly!

The group of 22 crown-wearing Taroona Princes perform a ceremony to publicly invite Tasmanian-born Crown Princess Mary of Denmark to be their patron, and her 11-yearold son Prince Christian to become an honorary team member.

Taroona Art Trail The inaugural Taroona Art Trail is a community initiative from the Taroona Environment Network to celebrate what is special about the Taroona coastal environment. The Taroona Art Trail will open on Saturday 19 November 2106 (10:00-10:00 pm) with works by artists and community groups. There will be exhibits which will be the culmination of community workshops supported by artists. Come along to the information night Thursday 30 June at the Bowls Club to hear more.

Page 5 – June 2016 Playgroup Tasmania membership provides support, information and training for leaders within groups as well as insurance for all those attending a playgroup. Taroona Playgroup welcomes new participants at any time. It meets every Tuesday at the Taroona Community Hall from 10am to 12noon every week apart from school holidays. The hall is heated, bright and spacious with an adjoining well-fenced outside playground and picnic area.

Tuesdays* 10am



At the Taroona Community Hall, Bachelor Way, Taroona A parent-run play session for 0-5 year olds and their carers. Toys, arts ‘n’ crafts and a hot cuppa!

Taroona Playgroup morning tea gathering

Taroona Playgroup There is something special about playgroups. Perhaps it is because they are run by the group itself so that parents all help put out the play equipment and everyone pitches in to store it away at the end of the session. Other tasks are shared around such as cutting up the fruit, washing and tidying up, helping to supervise each other’s children while adults change a nappy or feed a child. This all helps to foster a sense of community and cooperation. Conversations with other parents, carers and grandparents naturally occur while playing together with the children. These give opportunities for mutual support on a variety of issues and friendships are formed. Recently, for example, Taroona Playgroup has welcomed a wide range of culturally diverse members – from Japan, China, South America, Syria, South Korea, Malaysian Borneo, the UK and the Netherlands. Family membership of the Playgroup Association is only $30 per year or $20 concession. This allows members to attend any playgroup around the state as well as access to a toy library, a membership hotline, ePlaygroup news, discounts and special offers from local retailers and service providers, Playgroup Association voting rights, discount on venue hire of the Playgroup Tasmania premises for birthday parties and events, access to products and resources to promote our playgroups and PlayMap, an online resource to plan engaging play activities that suit the ages and stages of our children.

Have some fun, make friends and spend some special time with your child. New members always welcome. $3 per family plus a piece of fruit to share.

* During school terms only. For more information, please contact Amy 0417 55 1150

A Golden Opportunity:

Celebrate 50 Years with the Taroona High Students of ’66! Taroona High was only eight years old when the leavers of 1966 said farewell to their teachers and their school. Now, they’re meeting later this year to celebrate their impressive 50 year reunion, with a series of events over a weekend, providing lots of chances for the students of that year to get together and reminisce. Tracing all the students from the year has been a time-consuming and enjoyable project for the organizing committee, requiring creativity and investigative skills, with students spread far and wide across the globe, and following a wide variety of career routes (1966 is remarkable for producing – among many interesting professions – an opera singer, a guitar maker, journalists, teachers, lawyers and health professionals). One of the committee members, Hilary Cromer (nee Watts), says, “There were about 300 students in our year, and we’ve managed to contact approximately 100 people so far – so we’d love for others to help spread the word by passing on the details of the event to past students, or by providing us with their contact details so we can invite them as well.” The weekend of events includes a BBQ, school tour and reunion evening. To make the Saturday evening event particularly memorable and fun, the committee is asking attendees to bring along relevant memorabilia to be displayed during the night. Regardless of your role for the weekend, this is a not-to-bemissed chance to celebrate a special year group. “This is a fantastic opportunity to catch up with everyone from your year, find out what they’ve been up to over the past 50 years, and share memories,” adds Hilary. “We’re really pleased to be able to put on this event and look forward to seeing as many past students there as possible.”

Details: Tour of the school & afternoon tea – 1.30pm-4pm, Friday 28 October, Taroona High School Official reunion evening – 7pm-12am, Saturday 29 October, Southern Lights Hotel, Kingston (includes complimentary welcome drink and finger food) BBQ/picnic lunch – 12.30pm-4pm, Sunday 30 October, Taroona Community Hall (BYO food and alcoholic/non-alcoholic beverages; coffee and tea provided) Cost: $30 for the Saturday evening event (includes school tour and BBQ, free of charge). For those not attending the Saturday evening event, there will be a $10 per head charge to cover the tour and BBQ. If you want to find out more about the reunion or would like to contribute in some way, the committee welcomes your email at There is also a Facebook page for the leavers’ reunion (search for ‘Taroona High School 1966 Leavers Reunion’).

Those were the days!

News from the Taroona Football Club Taroona FC will be running their successful clinics in the July school holidays. The open clinics, to be held at Kelvedon Park on 7 July, are designed for junior and youth players and will provide children with fun, supervised activities designed to improve both football skills and enjoyment of the game. The emphasis on providing a supportive environment for young players is particularly strong at Taroona FC with half the club’s players being part of the youth program.

Taroona Scout Group TAROONA SCOUT GROUP AWARD WINING LEADER Once again the Taroona Scout Group leadership team has been recognised at the highest levels for service and excellence in Scouting Australian Scout medallion. The Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC, Governor-General of Australia awarded Janet Stephens with the Silver Koala award. This award is presented to adult Members for at least 14 years of distinguished service to the Scout Association. Janet was nominated for her services to the Kingborough Scouting District. This adds to Janet’s Silver Wattle medallion received in 2011 for services to the Taroona Group. Again the Group continued the tradition of participating in the Taroona ANZAC day dawn service. Each ANZAC day the Taroona Ex-Services Club awards one of our youth members the Spirit of ANZAC award. This year’s recipient was Jack Horrocs. The award recognises the attributes of scouts that may normally go unnoticed, such as willingness, friendliness and “Have a go” approach. The Taroona venturers have been taking part in the Amazing Race run by the southern region Rover crews. Most of the units in southern Tasmania have joined in six weeks of fun competition – which included a chocolate night – yes you can compete for chocolate, a scavenger hunt , coke run, mini olympics, iron gut (not eating onions this time) and a quiz night. Our team did very well, coming second on at least 2 nights. It certainly is as much about catching up with friends as competing for the prize at the end. Several have also been part of the Hobart College musical production either as actors and singers or as musicians. It shows great commitment and

Janet Stephens receives her award from the Governor of Tasmania, her Excellency the Honourable Kate Warner AM during the Tasmanian Branch Annual General Meeting they rehearse for months and still come to venturers. Most of us attended and it was very well received. Our venturers’ den, in the renovations at the hall is coming along and we hope we can celebrate that by the end of next term. Thanks to parents and others for help with transport while the “venturer van” is having an engine reconditioning – we all miss it. After Action Builders completed their work the hall extension project moved into the final stagerequiring the Taroona Scout membership pave the front area and lining out the old storage shed to enhance its usability. The extension was possible due to a generous grant of $40,488 from the Tasmanian Community Fund that represents the majority funding of the nearly $52,000 project. After a great effort by parents and King Cat bobcat the ground surface was levelled and pallets of pavers moved in readiness for laying. The lining is well underway thanks to the expertise and building skills of parent Paul DiBenedetto. If you would like any information concerning the Taroona Scout Group or are interested in youth membership or a leader role please contact either Mike Green on 6227 9139 or Janet 0400 297 646.

The Club was delighted when its team won the grand final in its division. This year a formal agreement has been signed for the first time with a professional coach, Nick Martin. Nick can be contacted on 0447 293 582 and he will be happy to arrange coaching for people of all ages and standards. Later this year a significant upgrade will take place at Taroona.
