LETTERS TO THE EDITOR The Valley Reporter considers its “Inbox Letters to the Editor” section to be a very important public forum. We make every effort to publish all letters, with those from persons in our readership area taking precedence. However, letters must conform to some guidelines. The Valley Reporter does not publish letters that contain personal attacks or inappropriate/questionable language or content. We strongly encourage writers who do have a personal complaint about a business, individual or organisation to relay their concerns to the source instead of - or at least prior to - voicing them in a letter to the editor. In most cases, it is more appropriate to air those type of issues privately instead of publicly so that the subject may respond and the concerns may be addressed. We also, as a rule, do not publish unsigned letters. There is one exception: The writer must show an extremely compelling reason for needing to remain anonymous. The written request to have your “name withheld” must accompany the letter. All letters to the editor must contain the writers full name, home address and daytime telephone number so the editor may contact the writer if there is a question or concern. While we try to print as many letters to the editor as possible, writers must be aware that their publication is at the editor’s discretion. Timeliness, space constraints and the amount of letters submitted each month are three of the factors considered.

Footy Colours Day Friday September 6, 2013 show your true colours and help young Aussies living with cancer Footy Colours Day is the one day in September to have fun and help young people living with cancer. Footy Colours Day was launched nationally on Monday July 1. Football is about spirit, strength, courage and the fight to win. Those touched by cancer share a similar journey and need the same strength and courage to win their individual fight. Each year thousands of Australians unite, wear their favourite footy colours and make a donation to give young Aussies living with cancer a brighter future through the Fight Cancer Back On Track program. It’s a great opportunity to help minimise the impact and disruption cancer has on a young person’s life by helping them to stay connected with their schools and friends and continue to reach their full potential. Sydney Swans co-captain and Footy

Colours Day Ambassador Kieren Jack says, “We all need to look after our mates - especially those doing it tough. Footy Colours Day is a fun way to enjoy yourself and help young people living with cancer at the same time.” We encourage all Australians to get into the spirit of Footy Colours Day this year and have fun by wearing their favourite team’s colours, organising a footy breakfast or morning tea, decorate the office or classroom, have a casual day, fashion parade, footy trivia competition, treasure hunt, art competition or any other fun way to enjoy Footy Colours Day and support young Aussies living with cancer when they need it most.

The City of Armadale recently appointed two new deputy chief bushfire control officers to aid fire prevention in Armadale and surrounding areas. After 11 years in the position, Robbie van Uden has handed the duty over to Roleystone volunteer firefighter Matthew Plowman (pictured) and Bedfordale volunteer firefighter Gavin Fancote on the 1st of July. The officers will be required to work closely with the City in controlling and monitoring the use of fire and related activities throughout the year. For Matthew and Gavin, fighting fires runs in the family. Like father, like son, both men share the same passion for fire prevention as their fathers, who have volunteered their time in the past. Mr Plowman expressed his thoughts about following in his father’s footsteps as a deputy chief bushfire control officer. “It’s a position I’ve wanted to do for a long time and I’ve been interested in.

The City of Armadale has awarded a contract for landfill gas management services to Landfill Gas & Power Pty Ltd (LGP), which aims to design, construct and commission the landfill gas management project. LGP is the preferred Western Australian Local Government supplier and has installations at Red Hill, Canning Vale, Kalamunda and Kalgoorlie. Landfill gas (methane) is assessed as being more than twenty times worse as a green house gas than carbon dioxide, and hence its capture and conversion to carbon dioxide is seen as current best practice. Methane is captured, harnessed or flared where feasible. At the City of Armadale landfill site, there is estimated to be sufficient methane for flaring. Apart from the environmental

Greyhounds As Pets is a not for profit initiative of Greyhounds WA that is responsible for finding homes for greyhounds once their racing career is over. Gaze into their eyes and you will glimpse the love and loyalty that will be yours if you open your heart and home to a greyhound. When adopted, these peaceful souls soon settle in and become part of the family. Gentle and well mannered, they thrive on human companionship and form bonds quickly. Greyhounds require very little exercise; they’re more likely to want to curl up for a snooze in the sun than run around the yard all day. Each greyhound that enters the program completes a 4-6 week period in foster care to acclimatise them to life as a pet, so they’re already familiar with all of the sights and sounds of the home environment. The staff at Greyhounds As Pets will work with you to ensure that the dog you receive will fit in well with your individual home and family. Ref: Photograph courtesy of the Till Family.

DEVELOPMENT OF THE SKATE/BMX FACILITY AT CROSS PARK, ROLEYSTONE Following the community engagement for the master planning for Cross Park, Council approved the development of the new skate and BMX facility on 11 March 2013. Award winning skate park designer and developer Convic designed the park with valuable input from local young people. With the design work complete construction will be starting on 16 July 2013. The Cross Park facility is one of two skate park redevelopments currently underway in the City, with a new replacement facility also under construction in Forrestdale.

Do you have what it takes to complete the 1000km Munda Biddi Epic? The Munda Biddi Trail Foundation is calling for registrations from riders to take part in the Munda Biddi Epic 1000 cycling event in April 2014, a fully supported ride leaving from Albany and finishing in Mundaring.

On the 19th of July this year, a team of five Telethon Adventurers will be flying from Perth to La Paz in Bolivia to raise money and awareness for childhood cancer research. Jessica Hayes, Gavin Zimmer, Theo Wye, Gary Kingston and Baz Everest will be participating in a 20 day expedition, which includes climbing four classic peaks of the Andes mountain range in an attempt to raise over $80,000 for the Telethon Weekend in Perth later this year. A once in a lifetime experience, the participants will spend several days in La Paz and its surrounding districts to acclimatise and prepare for the climb of 5379 - 6462 metre peaks, including Alpamayo Pequeno, the right wing of the Condor, Huayna Potosi and Illimani. Along with tours of La Paz (the world’s highest capital city), the team will take part in basic mountaineering training to develop skills that will aid them on a rewarding and character-building experience. Raising awareness about childhood cancer in Western Australia is the key objective of the expedition, and donations are a necessary component for finding the cure to cancer, “We are making a difference, one step, one adventure at a time!” says Jessica Hayes. If you would like to donate to a worthy cause, the team encourages you to visit their fundraising page on the internet by following the link below: bolivia_2013/68.

are already sterilised at an early age, so the responsibility for compliance only requires micro-chipping and registration, as well as identification with a collar and name tag. The questions about micro-chipping from clients and interested owners usually reflect their concern about whether the process is painful for cats, and whether it can be done at home. I would like to reassure cat owners that the microchipping procedure is readily carried out at home, often at the same time as vaccination, and that there is really no distress for the cat. If you would like to book an appointment to have your cats micro-chipped at home, with or without vaccination, please call or text Dr Judith Congrene on 0433 2137 28.

It is timely to remind cat owners about the responsibilities imposed under the Cat Act 2011, which has been introduced in 2 phases. The second phase will take effect from the 1st of November 2013, which is rapidly approaching. This legislation has been quite controversial, but its intent is to encourage responsible cat ownership, reduce the number of unwanted cats being bred, allow for cats found in a public area or on private property to be seized, and to allow for the reunion of lost cats with their owners. When the entirety of the Cat Act 2011 comes into effect in November, all cats which are 6 months of age or over will be required to be micro-chipped, sterilised and registered with the relevant local government authority. Cats will be required to wear a collar and registration tag to ensure that owned cats can be easily identified and returned to their owners. Fortunately, many cats

As far as the Roleystone Men’s Community Shed is concerned, school holidays mean a dramatic increase in vandalism from a suspected group of students who spend time at the old school site after school and during the holidays. So far, there have been four attempted forced entries with theft. The last one occurred on Monday July 8, where an attempted arson took place as well. During this break-in, the intruders enjoyed the facilities of the pool table and dart board before trashing the place by spreading tea, coffee and biscuits around the tearoom. Unsatisfied, they proceeded to smash the clock and discharge a dry powder fire extinguisher around the office, covering a computer, photocopier and laminator. These were hard enough to acquire, and the members hope they aren’t damaged beyond repair. The sitting room, recreation room and tearoom were the next victims of the dry powder assault. The old primary school site is not public property. The Men’s Shed has

permission to occupy and use one of the school buildings. The Department of Education, who presently own the site, accept children playing on the oval, others walking their dogs through the precinct and normal, socially acceptable behaviour. However, in the last twelve months, there have been numerous broken windows, ripped up verandah floors, graffiti and unoccupied building broken into. The most disturbing of recent incidents has been the lighting of a fire in the school precinct. The damage over the past twelve months has cost over $70,000 to repair. Is this how we want our tax dollars spent? The police have been called several times and have collected forensic evidence. If you noticed your child return home Monday July 8 with white powder on his/ her clothes, you may not be aware of how that came about. We would be grateful if you, the parents, would take time to explain that their actions are criminal and are being acted upon by the police. Finally, members are concerned for their safety. One of our members has already had to care for a young boy who fell from the roof. Interesting to note, the adult in charge had dropped him at the school to ‘play’ with his friend!


Create an ad for Keep Australia Beautiful and win! Are you a budding Steven Spielberg? Keep Australia Beautiful (KAB) WA is urging video and film makers to get creative in the fight against litter for a chance to win some great prizes. Create a dynamic, catchy and funny antilittering advertisement and you could win a weekend trip for four to the Rottofest 2013 short film, comedy and music festival to see your ad on the big screen, or $500 cash. The ‘Did you just drop one?’ ad competition uses humour to sell the anti-litter message and is part of KABWA’s new ‘Bin it …You know it’s the right thing to do’ campaign. Chair of the Keep Australia Beautiful Council Mel Hay invited creative Australians to make their own 30-second anti-litter ad suitable for viewing online. “To have a chance to win, the entries must use the proposition ‘Did you just drop one?’ to deliver the ‘Bin it … You know it’s the right thing to do’ message,” Mr Hay said. “KAB hopes this competition and the ‘Bin it’ campaign emphasise that keeping Australia beautiful is something that we are all responsible for and that littering is unacceptable. “People who litter often see it as someone

else’s problem, or justify their action by saying that others do it too, or that items littered are only small. “Yet littering of any kind causes major environmental and social hazards and represents a significant financial burden for local governments and authorities that have to clean it up. “The aim of this campaign and competition is to appeal to Australians’ sense of what’s right…and to their sense of humour, while exploring creative ways to get the anti-litter message out.” The winning entry in the ‘Did you just drop one?’ competition will be shown at Rottofest 2013, a renowned short film, comedy and music festival at Rottnest Island on 6-8 September. The winner will also receive $500 cash, or a trip for four to the Rottofest weekend, valued at $930. Entries close on Monday August 19 at 5:00pm WST. For more information about competition rules and how to enter visit www.kabc., email: kabc@dec. or call 6467 5339.

On the 14th of July, the ‘Unplugged Acoustic Folk Root & Blues’ hit a new high, truly moving into the international musical arena. Mr Lin Zhong Jiang from China, here for a holiday, mesmerised everyone with the Erhu. It can be used as a solo instrument and in small ensembles or large orchestras. The Erhu is a two-stringed bowed musical instrument, and you can learn more about it by visiting the following links: wiki/Bowed_string_instrument, Spike_fiddle. The instrument is also known as a “Southern Fiddle” or a “Chinese Violin” in the Western world. It was a pleasure to welcome Mr Lin Zhong Jiang after an overseas trip to Scotland. The day continued to impress when Jim gave us a little French touch, being his birthday and Bastille Day, the National Day of France. First timer John arrived armed to the teeth with an array of instruments, one of those a beautiful double bass. John is originally from New Zealand and gave backing to every style of music played throughout the afternoon. John also played

WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF LEGUMES Beans Before you begin, all beans must be soaked for 12 to 24 hours in water. Add approx. 2 Tbsp of whey, buttermilk or yoghurt to the water for lactic fermentation. In warmer weather, the beans will ferment, which is a healthy and traditional process. Alternatively, you can soak beans in the fridge. Beans can take anywhere between 1-3 hours to cook, and must be covered in water/stock due to swelling (approx. 1 cup dry beans equals 2-3 cups when cooked). Beans cook the best with even heat distribution in a heavy based pot, cast iron pot or french oven (be careful of burning if using stainless steal). The beans will squish easily when cooked. Note: skim off any froth whilst beans are cooking. Hints: Adding a 2-3 cm strip of kombu sea vegetable softens the beans and improves digestion. Kombu is a great source of calcium that breaks down as it cooks and adds flavour: you can eat it or discard it. Avoid using salt during cooking as it toughens the beans. Leftover beans can be frozen. Aduki beans: 1-1.5 hours cooking time (1 cup = 1 serve) Aduki beans are easy to digest and have a hint of sweetness, making them a lovely addition to any meal. Take care not to over-cook them as they turn to mush. These beans make a wonderful dip or sauce over roast vegetables, marry beautifully with pumpkin and sweet potato, and can be sprinkled over salads. Aduki Bean Soup Aduki beans (or alternatively cannellini beans) make wonderful soups that are perfect for a low fat diet. With a deep red/ brown colour, the soup is delicious with sprinkled tamari seeds, pumpkin seeds/ pepitas or sunflower seeds and lots of fresh parsley. Ingredients: 1 butternut pumpkin, diced with skin 1 sweet potato, diced with skin 1-2 carrots (dependant of size), diced with skin 1 zucchini (2, if small)

1 cup aduki beans - soaked and cooked as mentioned above 1 leek (large) 1 red onion 1 knob of ginger (add as much as you like, the ginger goes beautifully with aduki beans and is great for your immune system) 6 cloves garlic 1 tsp. cumin 1 tsp. curry powder 1 tin coconut cream (enhances flavour and nourishment) Coconut oil Sea salt and pepper to taste Chilli (if you desire)

Method: Cook the aduki beans with kombu and 3-4 ginger coins/slices. Cover the beans well (around 2cm) and bring to boil, turn to medium heat cooking for 30mins. Meanwhile, sauté the leak in coconut oil, add spices, salt, grated ginger and garlic. When golden, add the vegetables and sauté. When ready, add this aromatic mixture to the aduki beans and stir well. Cover with vegetable stock or water (it will make its own) and bring to boil, turn the heat down and allow to cook for another 20-30 mins or until soft. You can blend this to a smooth consistency, have roughly mashed or leave as it is. Serve with a dollop of fresh yoghurt on top, some fresh coriander and pepper to taste. If you enjoy this soup, you’ll find plenty more ideas like it in the next Valley Reporter. If you have any questions, call me on 0410 421 213. To find out more about my raw and wholefood classes, call the Roleystone Family Centre on 9496 1115.

On Friday June 28, students from Years 4, 5 and 6 participated in the annual Lightning Carnival for football, soccer and netball. The clear blue skies and moderate temperature made it a beautiful day for sports. A number of schools from all over Perth competed with vigour and great sportsmanship, endeavouring right through to the final whistle. Good Shepherd Catholic Primary School entered four teams into the competition. The football team went through the rounds undefeated, eventually winning the grand final in a “come-from-behind victory”. The Year 6 netball team also went through their rounds undefeated, winning the grand final in fine fashion. The Year 5 netball team showed promise for next years’ competition, winning the majority of their games and finishing in third place overall. The soccer team

gave an impressive display all day long, winning one of their games and fighting hard throughout the rest. Thanks to the talent and perseverance of the students, Good Shepherd Catholic Primary School were crowned overall champions for the day! We would like to thank all the parents for their support, both on the day and during training sessions. A big thank you is also extended to the teachers involved, especially our Physical Education Specialist, Miss Shaw, who organised the carnival.

Good Shepherd Quiz Night A community that is able to laugh is one that generates joy and a strong sense of togetherness. At Good Shepherd’s inaugural Quiz Night, held on Saturday June 29, it was evident that the community surrounding the school is a strong and joyful one. The evening event was held in the gymnasium of Lumen Christi College, and was a tremendous success. Sincere thanks are extended to the Parent Group sub–committee for all their hard work, which included

collecting sponsors, donations, and equipment, setting up, cleaning up, and a myriad of other tasks that contributed to a fabulous night. The Quiz Night was developed from feedback given by families, who were looking for the Parent Group to lead “friend-raising” as well as fundraising events. The sense of friendship and community at the Quiz Night was, by far, the best prize of the night, and one that was shared by everyone present.

In Good Shepherd’s Pre-Primary, we have been very busy this term, learning about our wonderful world. We have been learning about how plants, animals and water are all important parts of our wonderful world. We grew flowers, made butter, explored water and did a multitude of other activities. After learning that God created our world, we created our own wonderful world in the classroom using collage materials, and even created a movie about how the world was made. Our assembly in week eight gave us the opportunity to share our learning with the rest of the school and our parents. We shared all our learning about our world, the alphabet, our families, numbers, and finished off with our favourite dance. It was great fun!

The school is now developing strong links with program developers ‘EduSolutions’ in Western Australia, ensuring growth and sustainability within the program in years to come. Roleystone Community College’s coordinator Mr Paul Huisman recently attended upon invitation the Advanced Trainer/Master Instructor program conducted in ‘the home’ of R&W, the Netherlands, presented by Founder, Freerk Ykema. In October 2012, Mr Ykema visited the College and gave an insightful seminar to parents and staff on the program’s goals and ongoing purpose. As a result of Mr Huisman’s additional qualifications, he will now be able to present smaller course offerings for both staff and parents at the College. Peter Thatcher, Founding Principal.

Great news, our official Children's Pedestrian Crossing on Brooks Road is finally complete. At this point Mrs Judge our crossing guard, will be employed by the Traffic Wardens Office and will once more be in her official attire complete with flags and whistle. This will mark the end of the P & C’s funding of the crossing. This provides a good opportunity to remind our community about the correct crossing procedure. Please go over these rules with your children: • Pedestrians must wait on the pavement behind the posts until the crossing guard has stopped the traffic and blown her whistle to signal that it is safe to cross; • Pedestrians must cross between the white lines marked on the road and should not cut across in front

On August 4, the group will have a revegetation day at Stonegate Reserve, Stonegate Road, Roleystone. There will be signs indicating the meeting point and revegetation will commence at 9:00am and finish at 12:00pm. Morning tea will be provided. Please bring gloves and a small trowel if you have them, although we do have some spares. If the weather is inclement, please check our website below to ensure the event is still being held. New volunteers are welcome. Extra information about the location can be found online and on the Roleybushcare notice board at the Roleystone Shopping Centre.


Have you looked at your trees and wondered how old they are? Well, there is a new way to estimate their age. Normally, counting the growth rings within the trunk can be used to age trees. This is a very difficult task that cannot be achieved without cutting the tree down. However, a Department of Environment and

Conservation research scientist has done all the work for us by counting the growth rings of around 200 trees and correlating the number of rings with the circumference of the tree. It is valid for both jarrah and marri, meaning that if you can measure the circumference of the tree, then you can estimate its age. Roleybushcare has simplified the process even more. We have marked-up two fibreglass tape measures so they read in 'tree years'. You can borrow one of the tapes from Roleystone Hardware (thanks to Ben and Sue for their help), then loop the tape around the tree at 1.3m height and read the age from the tape measure. We are hoping that our community will forward their results to us in order to compile a register of large trees in Roleystone and Karragullen. For more details you can visit our website and look in “Bush topics”. Mail: Roleystone Family Centre, 19 Wygonda Road, Roleystone. Email:, www.

These included updates Jo Roshkov. on the use of phosphite, which is currently our only effective means of preventing Dieback infection in susceptible trees. We also had a preview of an iPhone app currently in development, which will allow interested members of the public to report cases of diseased Marri trees.

The Department of Agriculture and Food is reminding importers of seed, plant materials, animals and other biosecurity risk materials of across-the-board quarantine inspection charges from 1 July 2013. Department Border Biosecurity director Greg Pickles said the charges would impact on private importers who had previously not been charged for quarantine inspections. “Commercial importers have long been charged for quarantine inspections of risk materials imported from other Australian states,” Mr Pickles said. “Charging for inspections for all imports levels the playing field and has been implemented because the new Biosecurity and Agriculture Management Act 2007 (BAM Act) doesn’t differentiate or discriminate between commercial and private risk creators. “The strict inspection regime will help ensure we maintain Western Australia’s high biosecurity status to protect our agriculture industry, natural environment and lifestyle and remain free of many pests and diseases found in other parts of Australia and the world.” The BAM Act and Biosecurity and Agriculture Management Regulations 2013 (BAM Regulations) came into effect on 1 May 2013. Under BAM Regulations, charges are being applied for quarantine inspections, assessments, examinations, tests, analyses, treatments, searches, monitoring or control measures made, conducted or provided under, or for

the purposes of, the Act. From 1 July, a minimum charge of $56 per consignment will apply to all inspections carried out on items imported from other states for commercial purposes and noncommercial purposes. The fees and changes are detailed in the Biosecurity and Agriculture Management (Fees and Charges) Determination 2013, published in the ‘Western Australian Government Gazette’ of 3 May 2013. Mr Pickles said in order to minimise the impact on private importers, interstate exporters (suppliers) had been provided the option to enter into a special arrangement and accept inspection charges on behalf of private importers, where individual consignments were received at the same premises on the same day. “Such an arrangement would enable Quarantine WA to treat the import as one consignment and charge accordingly, eliminating individual charges to each consignee, which the interstate exporter could include in the product price,” he said. “Eighty nine interstate suppliers have taken the opportunity to have special charging arrangements to minimise the impact on their clients.” Quarantine WA will continue its surveillance of mail and parcel centres to prevent the introduction of risk materials to Western Australia by post. Fines of up to $5,000 could be imposed on people who illegally import quarantine risk materials by post. Ref: Published: 25 June 2013.

Successful candidates with senior grading panel

On a very cold Saturday morning on the June 15, the mid-year senior grading for three senior students from Kofukan Karate Roleystone was held at Warnbro Dojo. We had two eager students attempting 1st Kyu and one very nervous student attempting Shodan. There was a very large contingent from Roleystone on the day to cheer the students on, giving them lots of welcome support to get them through their grading. A big thank you goes out to all who came and supported the guys. All of the candidates performed well on the day with their Bunkai (application of kata) and fighting being two of the many highlights noted. We are pleased to announce that Pam Thonell and Frank Van der Heijden were successful in completing their 1st Kyu Brown Belts and we now have a new 1st Dan Black Belt student in James Scott. Following a great grading, the Roleystone crew headed out to the Gosnells Hotel to share with and celebrate the success of our students. You can say you’ve definitely earned your black belt when you turn up to dinner with a black eye (debate still surrounds who was the culprit). Well done and congratulations go out to all three. To cap off another fantastic term for Koukan Roleystone, we are pleased to send a BIG congratulations to Sensei Brooke Williams and Gabby Purser on making the 2013 AKF National Karate Team. They are both headed off to Hobart in August to compete for our State. By Brooke Williams. Photographs courtesy of Jayne Pleysier.

Each year, National Farm Safety Week is held to raise awareness of farm safety issues across Australia. The Australian Centre for Agricultural Health and Safety Figures recently released figures that remind us of the importance of safety within agriculture. Reports have indicated that 28 people have lost their lives in on-farm incidents and a further 63 have been involved in non-fatal incidents. “These figures are similar to the same time last year”, said Centre Director Dr Tony Lower. “However, the figures are only a very small part of the issue, as behind every one of these cases there is an individual, a family and a community that has to manage the unnecessary loss of a loved one or friend.”

ensure a crush protection device is fitted, wear a helmet and follow basic riding safety practices.” Owners of quad bikes in rural areas such as Roleystone should not be discouraged from completing their required tasks, but rather take extra caution when riding such machines to ensure personal safety remains a paramount concern. “We know that there are highly effective ways to control the risks and prevent needless deaths and injuries. Hindsight is a wonderful thing, but we need to take these steps before issues arise. In this way we will not only save lives and serious injuries, as an industry we will be more productive.” Ref: Published 1 July 2013.

Among the deaths, quad bikes remain the leading cause with 6 onfarm fatalities (and a further 4 offfarm), along with 22 reported quad injuries. “While quad manufacturers always point to rider error to avoid any implications regarding the safety of their product, with over 60% of deaths in Australia involving rollovers, the lack of a lateral stability standard and crush protection means not only do they roll all too easily, but when they do, the consequences are often fatal. Because of these design flaws, the margin of error for riding quads is so small that it all too often ends in tragedy.” “We strongly encourage farmers to use other safer vehicles or if continuing to use a quad, then to

as hypnosis, we can communicate directly with the unconscious mind. In this safe state, your subconscious mind will help you solve problems.

How the Roleystone locals like it

Bickley – Western Australia © copyright 2013 Bureau of meteorology

Ruban Birch lives in Roleystone and is a year 12 student at Guildford Grammar School. He was chosen once again to represent WA in an interstate rugby competition this year in Sydney. Ruban played as part of a selected team for WA against NSW I, Combined Schools and Queensland II. The young man trained for many hours at school and made the most of a home gym to ensure he was prepared for the challenge. The selection started with 30 players. It was then cut three times before the final squad was decided based on the players’ performance during training. Commitment was a given while hours of training and dedication was a necessity. The team flew out with one-day rests between games. In a tough and competitive competition, Western Australia progressed to a seventh place play-off against Canberra. Although the boys from WA lost by a close margin of 2 points to ACT, the experience will be treasured and remembered in years to come. The final took place on Saturday July 6 with NSW I defeating NSW II by 8 points. At the end of the season, Ruban will have a shoulder operation due to the impact of previous rugby seasons. He has exhibited true leadership both on and off the field, regardless of the pain he has experienced. Ruban has played in the first team at Guildford Grammar School for two years and is the school first team Captain. We wish Ruban well in his chosen sport representing WA, and hope that he pursues his dream of becoming a professional rugby player. He is following in his brother’s footsteps, Lukas Birch, who also attended Guildford Grammar and is currently in the Western Force Rugby Academy.

The 8th of September in 2013 will mark an important date in the calendar of Kelmscott's Good Shepherd Parish as it officially opens its newly constructed church for worship. Father Leo Ryan built the original Good Shepherd Parish in Kelmscott in 1967. For nearly 50 years, the Parish has continued to serve the local Catholic community and faith on the same block of land. The Parish was built to accommodate the growing Italian and Catholic population residing in Kelmscott at the time, and achievements such as the opening of the Good Shepherd School in 1970 remain deeply embedded in the history of the

local community. Compared to most other Catholic parishes, Good Shepherd is unique in providing three forms of the Mass. These include Latin Mass (the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite), the curomary Mass to be found in Catholic parishes and the Mass of a relatively new movement in the Catholic Church known as the Neocatechumenal Way. Although the church has served the local Catholic population for a long period of time, the old building had started to reach its natural end. It was decided that a new church would serve the test of time and be more beneficial than spending a large amount of money on renovations.

In an interview, Peter Rosengren from The Record Catholic Newspaper said, “The old church represented the very beginning of the Catholic population in Kelmscott.” Although it remains undecided, the old church will probably continue to hold Latin Mass services while the new building will be home to normal and Neocatechumenal masses. Having two churches on one piece of land is relatively unusual, separating Good Shepherd Parish from most of its counterparts. “It is a coming of age. It is a big church that will allow growth for the future,” Mr Rosengren said. Sky O’Brien.

stepping down, a huge thank you to both for all their hard work and efforts over the last 12 months. Terry Walsh is now our Vice President and Alex and Tony have joined the Committee. Our Members would have noticed a lot of activity around the Club over the last month as we have been extremely busy with the refurbishment of both the internal and external areas of the Club.

system is about to be put onto the roof and extra reverse cycle air conditioning put into the Wygonda Lounge; • New lighting to replace current lights both internally and externally. Our refurbishment of the Club cottage is almost finished with both the internal and external areas repainted, floor coverings, new kitchen and re-modelled bathroom. Anyone who is interested in renting this three bedroom, lounge, dining and activity room cottage should send an email to r.meadows@hansenenviro. stating details and references, the cottage will be available for rent at the end of July. The ‘Chase the Joker’ continues to attract large crowds and is now up to $2,800 and is drawn at around 6:30pm on a Monday and Wednesday evening, so come along have a quiet beer or two and enter into the draw. Michael Hansen, President.

On Thursday the 11th of July, Larissa from Soulfelt Threads and I joined forces to bring the children of Roleystone an exciting and unique school holiday workshop with Yoga and Art. We had a great turnout, with over 25 super and bright little yogis coming out to play. After opening our circle, we started off with an exciting yoga adventure. I managed to use that great school holiday excitement to get the children’s energy levels pumping, before calming and focusing them. Larissa’s nature art activity was a big hit. The children combined plant material from our local bush with traditional craft, drawing inspiration from the organic shapes to build some amazing natural creations. In all, it was a fantastic group and we loved seeing so much amazing colour. If you missed out this time, be sure to check out the following link for more school holiday fun, www. Rainbow Pammy.

Positive Outcomes as Program Concludes The Roleystone Alive Program began in response to the tragic loss of too many young people in Roleystone. Funded through the State Suicide Action Program, it came to an end in June. The program was first coordinated by Evie Molson, who had advocated strongly with others for support to address the tragic issue that was impacting seriously on our community. When funding was identified, Evie facilitated the setting up of the program named ‘Roleystone Alive’ with input from many people in our community. Evie left the program after two years to have her baby. From then, it was taken over by Joyce Arnott, who has undertaken the various projects in the very successful One Life Community Action Plan. While Joyce’s role has been part-time, the success of the program is a credit to her commitment. With support from members of our community including the Roleystone Family Church, Joyce has without a doubt had a very positive impact on the lives of many of our young Roleystone community members, all of which should be congratulated. On the 22nd of July, Joyce will be holding a meeting from 7:00pm at the Roleystone Family Centre to give a presentation of her work. All those that have been involved through the committee are invited to attend and assist by completing a well being survey provided by ECU. This is vital in gathering information to assist in future suicide prevention programs. Joyce is currently working with others who are seeking funding to undertake further projects with young people and their families. Pat Hart, One Life Community Action Plan committee member.

With the assistance of our NEW CLUB Sponsor new club sponsors ‘Kab Seating’, the coaches and committee members are now proudly wearing their brand new, lime green, Roleystone Netball Club T-shirts! Roley 1 are also wearing their new bibs with the ‘Kab Seating’ logo while Roley 8 are sporting their new bibs with the ‘Openica Logistics’ logo. Thank you once again to our team sponsors. Congratulations to all the Roley girls who competed in the recent Kalamunda Carnival. Girls from Roley 1, 3 and 6 put a team together and competed in an intense day of highly competitive netball. All the girls showed an excellent display of sportsmanship and went home thoroughly exhausted but proud to have supported their club for the day. It was a fantastic effort from everyone who played for the club and umpired on the day. Good luck to all the under 12’s in the next Kalamunda Carnival. Have fun and enjoy your day. On Friday June 21st, the City of Armadale held a sundowner at the Champion Lakes Regatta Centre. Along with various local sporting clubs, the Roleystone Netball Club was invited to the event. The seminar was lead by leading world sports coach/teacher Ian Crawford and Mayor Henry Zelones, while various facilities/planning staff from the City of Armadale were also in attendance. Tania Conlin has been liaising closely with The City of Armadale, making the Council aware of the Club’s needs both in the short and long term. Of particular concern is the immediate resurfacing of the old unused netball courts. During the course of the evening, we had the opportunity to communicate with Council staff members and highlight the need to improve general facilities that the club is sorely lacking. For enquiries, please contact the club Registrar, Sharlene Warnes, at snswarnes1@bigpond. Roley girls at the recent Kalamunda Carnival. Sarah shooting, she has a unique style! com or call 9496 0452. According to insurance industry data, there are roughly 20,000 collisions with kangaroos each year in Australia. Such overwhelming statistics have encouraged Swedish car maker Volvo to develop technology that can avoid kangaroo collisions. Volvo is working on a system that uses radar and camera technology to detect rogue kangaroos, which results in an automatic application of the breaks regardless of the driver’s reaction. “It will be a challenge to detect kangaroos because they are not as predictable as livestock and other large animals,” Martin Magnusson, a leading Volvo safety engineer, told News Limited at a safety conference. “But we think we can come up with a way to detect them.” Although development is only in its early stages, “animal-detection” technology should be on the road within three years with the aid of computer simulations. In areas such as Roleystone and Bedfordale where kangaroo habitats coincide with main roads, it will provide drivers with peace of mind in knowing that a kangaroo’s life could be saved if it happened to jump in front of their moving vehicle. “We are starting with the large animals first, the ones that pose the greatest risk to drivers, such as a moose, a horse, or a cow, then we are working on ways to detect other animals, including kangaroos,” Magnusson said.

testimoniAl July 2013 Dear Maggie and Team, On behalf of Suzanne and myself, I would like to thank the team at Maggie Burke Real Estate for the flawless selling of our property in Armadale. As usual, the entire team focused on the smooth process of the sale, from the initial paperwork, to the feedback as we reached each stage, right through to the signing of the offer. Both Suzanne and I were impressed with the ease of the process, the professionalism of all and, well, what can I say about the outcome… the 11 offers on the first open day was nothing short of amazing!!! Thank you to the Maggie Burke Team for being our Real Estate Agents for the second time. This second experience was even better than our first. Regards
