You only lose a few minutes, but an animal may be saved from pain and suffering. Remember, wildlife is always around in our area and if you have friends coming from the suburbs remind them to drive carefully. If you are unfortunate enough to hit an animal, show some compassion and contact wildlife authorities, rather than having the attitude “it is only a kangaroo”. It might be a good idea to have the telephone number on your mobile if you live in a native animal area so that you can act quickly. Sonia Soans, Bedfordale.

If you’ve always had a pet, it’s difficult to imagine life without one, and this is where the Pets of Older Persons (POOPS) program can help. POOPS WA is a no-cost service which is all about keeping people and their pets together. And as such, it’s as much about human wellbeing as it is about animal welfare. Pets are vital to many elderly people. They provide loyal companionship, give their owners a purpose in life, enable them to remain in their own homes for longer and are particularly important for the socially isolated. However, age, medical emergency and disability can prevent many owners from being able to fully care for their pets and this is where POOPS can help. POOPS WA is an incorporated nonprofit association staffed entirely by volunteers. Our volunteers are police-cleared and provide a range of services including home visits, animal feeding, dog walking and transport to/from vet clinics or boarding kennels. We cater specifically for people over 65 years of age – or palliative-care patients of any age – who have no relatives or friends willing or able to take responsibility for their pets in times of need. POOPS WA has its own patron in Dr Penny Flett, CEO of Brightwater Homes. Penny was awarded the Centenary Medal for service to the aged and disabled community in 2003. She was Telstra Business Woman of the Year in 1998, West Australian of the Year in 2009 and was recently awarded the WA Champion for Seniors Award. Penny has been described as a “powerful advocate at all levels of the government for older Australians” and we are honoured to have her on board. Ref: www.poopswa.org.au.

Taking care of our local wildlife Just before 5 o’clock on Sunday 19 May, I heard the all too familiar and sickening sound of a vehicle hitting a kangaroo. What is so distressing is that the car that hit the animal apparently drove off, whilst a couple of passers-by did stop but failed to render any assistance to the kangaroo. It was a young creature and was left with a broken leg thrashing around by the roadside. I managed to contact a Wildlife Officer who attended, but the animal had already died. I thank him for his compassion and swift attendance. I know from experience that kangaroos are unpredictable, so let us give them room as most of us value their presence so close to our homes. I would also like to remind people driving at dawn and dusk to slow down and be watchful.

The Castaways Sculpture Awards is an annual event that takes place in the City of Rockingham and exhibits a range of artworks created by local artists. From the 11-19 May, over fifty sculptures were on display to the public in an outdoor exhibition that took place on the shores of Rockingham. The free entry event supports local arts and provides cultural opportunities for residents whilst raising the profile of recycling and environmental sustainability. To reinforce this positive message, artists incorporated a recycled component in their work, offering visually engaging pieces that expressed a variety of innovative ideas influenced by sustainability. The event also offered emerging artists with the opportunity to showcase their diverse artworks alongside professional Western Australian artists. The public was encouraged to vote for their favourite sculpture as part of the People’s Choice Award, with both the winning artist and voter eligible to receive $500 courtesy of the Rockingham Shopping Centre. The $5000 Alcoa Major Award Winner for recycled sculpture with an aluminium component was awarded to Susie Marwick and Tony Connor for the sculpture ‘The Owl & the Pussycat’, with seven other cash prizes awarded to

worthy participants. More than 15,000 visitors attend the exhibition each year, and if you happened to miss this year’s Castaways Sculpture Awards, make sure you mark it down for 2014.

The National Little League Championships have come to a close and the Perth Metro Central Firebirds are Australia’s first representatives off to the World Series. Completing the tournament with a perfect 7-0 record, the Firebirds defeated Adelaide South 8-2 in the Grand Final. Perth jumped out to an early three run lead in the top of the first inning and thanks to a dominant pitching performance by Chase Diggins, the Firebirds never looked back. Adelaide South put up a valiant effort and attempted a comeback scoring two runs in the fifth but Perth answered with three runs of their own in the sixth to secure the win.

Donate your old car and save lives! DFES Road Rescue Training WA Firefighters rescue hundreds of people trapped in vehicles each year, one way the community can help save even more lives is to donate their unwanted cars to road crash rescue training. A total of 208 people were removed by firefighters in Western Australia from crashed vehicles in 2012, and so far this year 61 people have been rescued. Department of Fire and Emergency Services Applied Training Officer Noel Buckland said all firefighters, no matter how long they had been on the job, completed regular extrication training including using the ‘jaws of life’ on vehicles. Mr Buckland said during training firefighters learned how to safely and quickly stabilise a crashed vehicle and remove the windows, roof or doors. They were also taught how to gain access to the engine or boot. “Being able to remove someone from a crashed vehicle quickly and safely is an essential skill for a firefighter – and it is also one that requires quite a bit of

Fifty Two Film and Television students from the Year 8, 9 and 10 specialist classes participated in this year’s extension camp on location in New Norcia. After months of planning and many script adjustments the two crews were able to produce some outstanding footage which is already being put through the editing process. The end product will be two short films, ‘Chained Freedom’ directed by Danelle Tilley and ‘Futures Past’ directed by Ciera Bayley. We have already received positive feedback from Dion Borrett, local Cinematographer who was able to deliver specialist workshops in New Norcia along with comments from Central Tafe on the quality of footage that our students were able to produce. Students filmed for two full days, scheduling their own production meetings, shooting times as well as choosing locations on the first afternoon. On top of the skills related to the Film and TV curriculum, students were required to use a range of leadership, communication, problem solving and teamwork skills to ensure the production goals were met. All students involved in this year’s extension camp were a credit to Roleystone Community College in the way they carried themselves throughout the four days. Visit the photograph gallery on the RCC website at www.roleystonecc. wa.edu.au to see some of the action. We are hoping to premier both films during Term 3. Phil Springett Associate Principal.

Man’s Best Friend (or a woman’s substitute for babies!) My name is Carol Powell. Raised in Roleystone, I now live in Armadale with my husband Rees. A few days after arriving back in Perth from our honeymoon, I took our dogs Olive (Chihuahua x Jack Russell) and Pickle (Jack Russell x Dachshund) to visit my Mum who lives in Roleystone on a 7 1/2 acre block. While visiting, I noticed Olive chewing on something. At first, I thought nothing of it, as she does this quite often with toilet rolls and socks etc. However, I began to worry when Olive regurgitated white pieces that she had swallowed. We realised she had eaten a whole macrozamia seed. I looked online and discovered that these seeds are incredibly toxic for many animals. Ten minutes later, Olive was visibly drained and vomiting constantly. I read about animals ingesting a number of seeds, and after a week becoming violently ill and eventually suffering liver failure. This broke my heart as Olive is so small, and I thought she wouldn’t survive. I took Olive to Railway Avenue Vet in Armadale straight away and explained what had happened. She was put on a drip and blood tests were done to see if her liver was being affected. That night, my husband and I prayed that we would see her again. Then at about 11pm, our dog Pickle became ill too. Pickle was vomiting and wandering around. We couldn’t bare the thought of losing both dogs in one day and took Pickle to Murdoch Animal Emergency. Pickle was put on a drip and stayed the night with the same blood tests. We were devastated. Our family had been divided, but we received good news the following morning, and brought Pickle home waggly tailed. Olive had also survived, but was so weak that she needed to stay in hospital for a few more nights. It took almost a week for Olive’s liver to be affected by the poison, but she

came home with a follow up blood test a few days later. Having our family complete again was definitely worth the vet bills. Our house is warm with life and we still have moments when we look at Olive and wonder what a miracle it is that she is here with us. I really just wanted to share our experience with everyone and warn people about the dangers of Macrozamia seeds.

I am very concerned at the rate in which the tree disease known as Marri Canker is destroying Marri trees in the areas of Roleystone and the Canning Valley. We recently lost a large Marri tree that I estimate to be well over 100 years old, and I notice signs of this disease on other Marri’s on my property. If you walk down Croyden Road, you will see signs of the disease and numerous dead trees. Heading up the hill on Brookton Highway you will notice more dead trees. There is even a dead tree outside the Roleystone Family Church property, with more in the vacant block next to it on Croyden Road. There is no known cure or support mechanism such as that used for dieback at this stage. Professor Giles Hardsy and Dr. George Matusick for the Centre of Excellence for Climate Change Woodland and Forrest

Health Murdoch are working with the local government and community in the Mundaring-Kalamunda area where the disease is spreading. They are also creating an App (to be released in July) that will be used to identify the location of dead trees, aiding the process of accurately documenting the disease’s devastating spread. This article aims to raise awareness about the current situation of Marri Canker in our local areas. We should be mindful of cutting down native trees that are still healthy, including the Marri trees that are a very significant food source for our Black Cockatoos. We must work together as a community and do our best to stop Marri Canker from destroying more trees. You can find a lot of information on Marri Canker and its effects on the Internet. Pat Hart.

The threat of bad weather wasn’t enough to keep the crowds at home for the second Roleystone Markets. The fare failed to disappoint as punters crowded the oval. There were seventy-nine stall holders offering a wonderful array of homemade and handcrafted products. We also made sure that the Dads (and some of the Mums!) were entertained with a great display of local machines brought along by locals. The favourite of the day was undoubtedly the little red two seater! Luckily, the bulk of the rain held off until just before closing time, so those who ignored the weather warnings were duly rewarded. There were a total of eight food vendors on the day, and as always, the food was delish. Also, the girls from Ride to Conquer Cancer put on a fab sausage sizzle; their bacon and egg rolls were a massive hit! They were over the moon with the support from the public, and were able to raise a nice sum for the charity. The next Roleystone Market will be held on Sunday 8 September from 9am until the extended time of 2pm. It will be a Spring Clean Market, while a car boot sale portion, open to public, will be located in the car parks across the road. Details on how to apply as well as costs will be advertised soon.

City of Armadale “Economic Development Strategy”

The Strategy aims to encourage new business investment, existing business development, regional workforce development, marketing of the region, industry development and improve infrastructure. With regard to regional workforce development, the City’s current education and employment profile, compared to the metropolitan average, shows the City has a lower educational attainment with a higher percent of technical/trade workers and a lower percent of professionals/managers. Hence, the City currently “exports” labourers and “imports” professionals - a situation that could be better balanced. The document lists numerous actions with time frames, and the priority actions are to prepare an investment prospectus for the City, undertake a City Centre Development Capacity study, attract State Government Department offices to the City, establish the City justice precinct, improve shortstay accommodation in Armadale, progress industrial development opportunities, undertake a transport infrastructure needs assessment and an infrastructure audit. The Strategy is to be reviewed annually and residents can monitor the City’s progress of this set action list. Caroline Wielinga.

Master Tomiyama spends six months of each year touring and instructing at Kofukan dojos around the globe, but nonetheless declared his Kalgoorlie experience ‘excellent’ and ‘very different’. Sensei Brian was also pleased with the success of Shihan’s first visit to our Kalgoorlie dojo, saying that, ‘Our Kalgoorlie members were able to experience training with a real Karate Master, Shihan Tomiyama. An important Shihan in a hard hat ready for the mines tour. aspect is that the members learnt  consistency in the dojo etiquette, discipline and material taught by Shihan Tomiyama and our Australian Instructors.’ Back in Perth, Shihan held a senior karate session at our Roleystone dojo, demonstrating how, with a few deceptively simple modifications, some of our most basic moves can be applied with awesome results.

Golf is a sport that has been steadily growing in popularity amongst younger generations in Australia, and now your son or daughter has the chance to pick up a golf club and test their swing at the Araluen Golf Resort in Roleystone. Matthew Stapleton is a PGA Member of Araluen Golf Resort, and he aims to develop junior golf at a grassroots level by taking a less serious approach when it comes to teaching golf to young children. As a Professional Golfer, Matthew’s time as a home coach to the Institute of Sport in New South Wales has left him with many years experience in the local development of golf

at junior level. Although he has coached state and national champions in the past, Matthew is focussed on introducing the sport through fun activities and laughter: beginners will start by practicing with tennis balls before they are introduced to golf balls. He emphasises the importance of children learning at their own pace minus the burden of pressure and stress. Whether they are confident or unsure of their potential ability, the aim is to develop social skills when dealing with adults. ‘Golf is a game you can play with your family, for the young or old, boy or girl’, he said.

In the coming months, Matthew will be targeting over 22 local primary schools, offering students with the opportunity to give it a try before inviting them to Araluen Golf Resort (a premium golf resort right on their doorstep) for further lessons. It is a wonderful opportunity for both girls, who are traditionally underrepresented in the golfing world, and boys to enjoy the sunshine at such a great location. The cost will be less than what you think, as the Resort supplies all the equipment. For all your golfing enquiries, Matthew Stapleton can be contacted on 0432 371 771.

Food Alchemy with Vanessa Jean

This is a beautiful warming dish that is simple and delicious. Using current seasonal organic eggplants and potatoes, it is a curry that you can make as mild or as hot as you like to suit your family, also serving as a lovely addition to your weekly menu. In joy and deliciousness, Vanessa Jean. Eggplant and Potato Curry Use a skillet or large frying pan. Ingredients: Butter or ghee or coconut oil for cooking 4 - 6 cloves of fresh garlic, sliced 1 large red onion or 2 small (this is optional, you can leave out or use golden if that is all you have, red adds sweetness to it; as an alternative spring onions are wonderful here!) If using spring onions use approx. 6, with the green stems 1 Tbsp. dry mustard black seeds 1 1/2 tsp. turmeric 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper (leave out if you do not want the heat or any pepper) 1 tsp. ground cumin or seeds 2 - 4 eggplants (depending on size and how many you are feeding!), diced 6 - 8 potatoes, diced Sea salt to taste Method: Warm your pan and when it is hot, add the mustard seeds. When they start popping, they are ready! Add your chosen fat, toss in the garlic and onions/spring onions and leave to soften. Whilst they are cooking, add your spices (and relish the aroma!) Add the diced potatoes and salt to taste. Stir well. Once they have browned, add the eggplant. Remember, like mushrooms, eggplants will drink in as much fat as you give them, so add some more if you desire to enhance the flavour, but not too much – a knob of butter would be perfect. When the potatoes begin to stick, add a small amount of water and mix through. Allow it all to cook for a little on medium heat so that the outside of the vegetables caramelise, then turn to low, add the lid and let it cook until the vegetables are tender. This is a lovely addition to any curry night, and is superb as a standalone with or without rice. It is also delicious served with quinoa. If you enjoy this curry, you’ll find plenty more ideas like it in the next Valley Reporter. If you have any questions, call me on 0410 421 213.

The Roleystone Netball Club’s season is now in full swing. With regrading now complete, it is a timely reminder of how proud we are as a club to have such a good reputation for being supportive, with all players and parents signing a commitment to uphold the Code of Conduct. Over the recent long weekend, our Roleystone Association girls travelled to Wanneroo to compete in the Netball WA Members Carnival, where teams from all over WA came to play competitive netball. We would like to congratulate the KDNA U14’s Gold (with Kate Bunten) and KDNA U12’s Gold (with Jade Hancock and Jamie Hodges) for making it to the finals. With some unfortunate injuries and tears along the way, the girls had an awesome weekend, with some even getting the opportunity to meet many of their Fever idols, such as Caitlin Bassett. Also, well done to our umpires Heidi and Laura Blackman for giving up their weekend to umpire (a special

mention to Heidi, who was asked by Netball WA to umpire in the finals). Up and coming events include the Kalamunda Carnivals on Sunday 30 June (13’s and above) and Sunday 28 July (12’s and under). Good luck to those girls playing in the 13’s and above, and to girls wanting to play in the 12’s and under, get your registration forms in as soon as possible. With the assistance of our new Club Sponsors Kab Seating, both the Coaches and Committee members will soon be wearing their brand new Club t-shirts for the very first time! We would like to proudly say thank you to all of this year’s Club Sponsors - Kab Seating, Tony Simpson MLA Member for Darling Range, Beaver Tree Services, Openica Logistics, Metro Mobility and Rainstorm Dust Control.

Don Randall supports World Blood Donor Day

It was World Blood Donor Day on Friday, 14 June. Canning MHR Don Randall ‘rolled up his sleeve’ in support of the cause and donated blood at the mobile donor service at Centre Mandurah Shopping Centre. Mr Randall said he had been moved by reports of people needing blood donations in his electorate and had donated himself many times in the past. “When I heard that the Red Cross Blood Service had less than two days supply in July last year it was very concerning” he said. “I encourage anyone who

is thinking about donating to contact the Red Cross Blood Service to discuss their eligibility and when and where they can donate. “This year marks the 10th anniversary of World Blood Donor Day so there has not been a better time to consider donating. Essentially, those who donate are saving lives.” Mr Randall said currently only 1 in 30 Australians gives blood, but 1 in 3 Australians will need blood in their lifetime. He said the Federal Parliament was also getting behind the cause with politicians and staff having an opportunity to donate at Parliament House during the last sitting week this year. Most people can give

blood if they are fit and healthy, aged between 16 and 70 and weigh more than 45kg. However there are some people who may not or will not be able to give blood, such as those with certain medical conditions, who have recently had surgery or have a heart condition. Full details can be obtained from the Red Cross Blood Service website where you can take a quiz to assess eligibility. A mobile service visits the Armadale District Hall on July 23, 24, 25 and 26. For more information or to make an appointment visit www.donateblood.com.au or call 13 95 96.

Here are four tips to get you started: Fruits and vegetables The best way to boost your immune system is to eat foods that are high in essential nutrients and enzymes. To do that, fill your plate with fruits and vegetables, especially those that are bright red, orange and green such as broccoli, carrots, spinach, berries and citrus fruits. Probiotics Probiotics are also known as the “good bacteria”. They are normally found in our bowel and it is important that there is a healthy balance between the “good and bad bacteria” for the health of our digestive and immune system. At least 80% of the immune system is located in the digestive system and is referred to as gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT). In most cases you will need to take a probiotic supplement to sufficiently boost your immune system. You can support this by

body tends to overproduce cortisol – a hormone that is linked to a wide range of diseases. To counter this, relaxation is important. You can choose to attend a yoga class, have a bath, watch a movie, take up meditation, or start a creative hobby – anything to reduce stress! Vitamin D A study from Finland found that people who lack vitamin D are one-and-a-half times more likely to acquire a respiratory disease. Although the main source of vitamin D is the sun, it can also be obtained from some food including cod liver oil, dairy products, and fish oil. You can also take vitamin D in supplement forms.

The Roleystone Recreation Centre held its Open Day on Saturday 25 May. The day was a huge success for the fitness centre and cafe. With the sun shining overhead, you could hear the sound of kids laughing with delight as they jumped and flipped in the bouncy castle with their cute little painted faces. Meanwhile, the parents and other guests were busy looking through the fitness facility, enjoying the various market stalls and cafe specials. A few of the day’s highlights included the kid’s Zumbatomic class. I gave it a go myself and, wow, it was so much fun and wore me out at the same time. The class is new to our Club and is designed especially for kids. It helps build self-confidence, co-ordination, fitness and problem solving skills. Parents can have a great time too by participating with them as the kids dance away, using the gym facilities or just enjoying a quiet cup of coffee and cake in the cafe. Zumbatomic classes are held every Wednesday at 4pm. There were many winning grinners on the day, with door prizes drawn every 2 hours. Prizes and winners were; One Month’s Gym Membership-Karin Feasey and Jorja Passamani, Tupperware Mystery Gift-Sean Campbell and Thermomix Thermoserve-Trehna Rouse. Many thanks to our wonderful team of helpers and to all those who came in to support the event. And special thanks to the beautiful market stall holders for making the day that much better; Arbonne Essentials by Kim Oates, Thermomix by Siobhan Palmieri, Tupperware by Jacqui, Quillows by Marian Meharry, Jewellery by Jennifer, Dragon Variety Homewares by Alan and Shirleen, High Tea Social Club by Bobbi Sui, Face painting by Qing and Richard and Qi Gong by Alex Lim.

Hidden away in the gorgeous foothills of Perth and bordered by the Canning River, a new French patisserie and café has opened its doors. Already attracting great local attention, De Blés is a family owned business named after husband and wife Debbie and Leslie, who dreamed of opening up a small café that provides high quality foods, excellent service and a memorable dining experience to customers. Currently obscured by the Brookton Highway road works, this hidden gem offers home cooked foods with a lunch menu consisting of freshly made rolls, burgers, soups and pastas. Locally sourced suppliers of tea and coffee Leaf Bean and Machine, as well as free-range eggs from Ellah’s Eggs in the Swan Valley add a lovely finishing touch to the menu; supporting the WA community is very important for Deb and Les. Customers can enjoy homely food, including gourmet French patè and chocolate (flown in from France), pastries, olive oils and teas, which can also be purchased and taken home. You can buy freshly baked bread made from French ingredients (flown in from France), giving you the truly delicious taste of authentic French bread. The picturesque surroundings make this location one to see and experience first hand. Not only can you enjoy a lunch by the river, but you can also gather your friends together and have a wonderful afternoon high tea, commencing at 1pm every weekend. Taste your way through the extensive menu of teas, or if tea’s not your thing, then the pastries are sure to please. The venue also doubles over as a wonderful place for functions, offering a ‘down south’ feeling without the journey. De Blés is located on 2 Mount Street, Kelmscott, and is the perfect destination if you are looking for a place to catch up with friends or venture out for something different. It is open 7 days a week, 8am-2pm including most Public Holidays, and for more information you can call 0423 213 734, send an email to info@ deblescafe.com.au or visit the website at www. deblescafe.com.au.

Perth’s newest veterinary hospital, Foothills Animal Hospital, has opened a custom-built hospital in Armadale designed to make pets and families feel at ease. An outdoor examination room for dogs, cat only consulting room, kids waiting area, and 24 hour remote monitoring for hospitalised patients are a few features that Dr Nathan Mannix and Dr Nicole Laurence have added to make visiting the vet easier. “If we make a trip to the vet less stressful for the animal and easier for the family, people will get more regular health checks, better preventative medicine, and we catch life-threatening conditions earlier,” says Dr Nathan Mannix, veterinarian and Foothills co-owner. “Plus, working with a happy pet is easier for us and our clients. As vets, we love animals - we want them to love their vet back!” Dr Nicole Laurence shares this sentiment, “We are so passionate about pets. We’ve put a lot of thought into what we can do to make the experience better for pets and their families. For instance, the outdoor consulting room has already been a big hit - some dogs are just more

comfortable outside.” In developing Foothills’ new petfriendly features, Dr Laurence and Dr Mannix drew on more than 30 years experience in veterinary hospitals in Australia, England and the US. Dr Laurence, a Murdoch graduate, has worked in veterinary practice in rural WA, England, and several years in the Armadale area. Dr Mannix, graduated the Royal Veterinary College in London before working as a general and emergency veterinarian in the US and Australia. Foothills Animal Hospital is not only pet friendly, but family and environmentally friendly too. The clinic has a kids’ waiting area, and will offer a class for kids’ on pet ownership. The clinic is also designed to minimise its impact on the environment. Foothills is seeking to become “green-tick” certified, to become the first vet hospital in Australia to achieve this goal. Call 9497 7488 or visit www. foothillsanimalhospital.com.au for more details.

Why choose Foothills Animal Hospital for your pet? • You can see the same experienced vet every time • New facilities with full surgical, labs and hospital services • Convenient location and parking • Extra touches to show we care

Emergencies till 9pm 7 days

Two Roleystone Junior Fire Brigade Cadets onboard the STS Leeuwin II My name is Brendan Nye. I’m 14 years of age, and I would like to share my recent experience on the STS Leewuin II with you. I have been a cadet with the Roleystone Volunteer Bushfire Brigade for two years, and last month I was given the opportunity to represent this community organisation aboard the sail training ship called the STS Leeuwin II. The participants included myself and thirty other cadets from around Western Australia. We met at the Fremantle Port and boarded the STS Leeuwin II. After breaking up into groups, we were introduced to our team leaders and given a run down on safety and basic training before leaving the port. We did not know our destination, as our journey depended on the winds. Every morning we had to be awake at 6am, and then at night each team had to do a 4-hour watch, looking out for craypots, other boats and land. Throughout the journey, we were involved in team building exercises and learned about the importance of safety for ourselves and other team members, especially aboard a ship. Whilst using the Leeuwin IPs dinghy, I learnt that sometimes the easiest and shortest route was not always the best for safety. The skills I acquired during team building exercises, such as using ropes to roll up the sail whilst on the mast, required patience and teamwork to successfully complete the task. Whenever someone was unsure or needed help, there would always be a helping hand. For instance, the job of cleaning the ship was made easier with a group of people, which also made you feel good about your achievement. On the voyage, we had the opportunity to leave the ship in one of the small dinghies: we were transferred to a beach at Rottnest Island where we explored, had lunch and went swimming. Later that night, we all helped to navigate around Rottenest Island. Our task was to notify the STS Leeuwin II’s bosun about the depth of water in our location, the distance from the shore and how many knots we were doing. We also had to plot our position on a chart. On one particular day, we saw a shark swim past the ship, which was about two meters long. I think my biggest achievement was climbing to the top of the tallest mast and

reading the words engraved into a plaque screwed to the very top. It was really exciting and adrenalin pumping. In all we spent 6 nights aboard the STS Leeuwin II. On the last day, after all of our training, we steered and manoeuvred the ship all the way back to Fremantle Port on our own. On arriving back at Fremantle, we received certificates of achievement for successfully completing the training program on board the STS Leeuwin II. We were allowed to invite our families aboard the ship and show them around the decks, where we slept, the galley, the engine room and also introduced them to the crew. I really enjoyed my time aboard the STS Leeuwin II. I met some really nice people with similar interests; friends I will remember forever. I would like to thank the Roleystone Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade for their support and generosity. I hope that I can use the skills that I learnt aboard the STS Leeuwin II to become a better cadet. I hope you have enjoyed my story. Brendan Nye.


On Sunday 14 April, I boarded the STS Leeuwin II. This voyage was the DFES voyage, which meant that everyone on board was a cadet. I was asked by the Roleystone Volunteer Fire Brigade to take part in this wonderful program, which I felt was a great privilege. Being asked to go on the STS Leeuwin II was one of the best feelings ever. I had the most amazing time. The voyage went for seven days and I got to learn so much from tying a rope to climbing the main mast and setting the sails. It was great character building. We got to have a beach day at Rotto and sailed around the island and deep blue sea. On the way we got to see some amazing things such as lightning storms and sharks! As the voyage came to a close, I felt extremely grateful for being able to go on the STS Leeuwin II. I met some amazing people and sailing was one of the best experiences I have ever had. Mason McGrail. The STS Leeuwin II is proud to offer 3-hour coastal sails open to the public, which operate from late October until late April. Get a taste of what it is like to be on board a barquentine tall ship - a truly unique and memorable experience. The sail includes a light meal on board served with tea and coffee, allowing you to sit back, relax and watch the stunning Western Australian coastline slip by. http://sailleeuwin.com.

Former Roleystone Theatre performer finds Twelfth Night a delight most of my lines are in prose and not blank verse,” he said. Shakespearean plays are often defined as modern or traditional – but Director Watkins says his production has “a bit of both.” “Based on texts of historical theatre, audiences typically wanted comedy, bawdiness, sexual innuendo, social ridicule and characters they could immediately relate to,” he said. “In that sense, we are keeping it traditional by giving the play a joyful and high-energy feel. We have applied modern-day acting concepts to create characters that will hopefully appeal to a modern audience.” Twelfth Night plays at 8pm, June 21, 22, 27, 28, 29, July 4, 5 & 6 with a 2pm matinee June 30. Tickets are $18, $14 concession – book on 9330 4565 or at www.meltheco.org.au/ bookings.html. Melville Theatre is on the corner of Stock Road and Canning Highway, Palmyra.

a classic, well known production, and do it justice,” described Danni of her attraction to this production, “With such a famous operetta as Pirates, I find that there is a fine line between reinventing the production yet staying true to its original design.

Former Roleystone Theatre performer Cary Hudson is getting the chance to appear in one of his favourite Shakespearean comedies this June and July. “Twelfth Night is one of Shakespeare’s best comedies,” he said. “I saw it performed many years ago for Shakespeare in the Park and wanted to do it myself.” Directed by Jeffrey Watkins, the play is about finding love and acceptance and follows Viola who, after surviving a disastrous sea voyage, has to assume the identity of a young boy to make her way in the world. Her plans are complicated when she falls for new boss Orsino, who loves Olivia – and Olivia then falls for Viola’s disguise. When Viola’s lost brother arrives, he is mistaken for the boy Viola is impersonating and a series of mistaken identities then threatens to bring everything crumbling down. Hudson plays Fabian, the mischievous servant to Olivia. “He likes to participate in the sport of teasing Malvolio and Sir Andrew Aguecheek but he’s by no means malevolent,” he said. Making his acting debut at university 23 years ago, Hudson has performed in a plethora of productions over the years with Roleystone, KAFF, Old Mill, Upstart, Garrick, Playlovers, Stirling, Harbour and Melville Theatres and has won awards at various drama festivals. “My main challenge with Twelfth Night is getting back into the spirit of delivering Shakespearean text, although thankfully
