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 We also, as a rule, do not publish unsigned letters.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.

On the 29th of June, a Quiz Night and Auction was held to help fundraise for the Ride to Conquer Cancer. The night was a huge success, with over 150 people in attendance. Over $5000 was raised, thanks to the help from Roleystone and the wider community. It was incredible and so very moving to see the outpouring of support from everyone involved. Thanks must go to the Roleystone Country Club for providing

a venue and such wonderful staff whom helped to make the night enjoyable for all. Also, we would like to thank our friends and family, who went above and beyond for us in the lead-up to and on the night. It’s less than 3 months until the Ride, so now it’s time for us girls to put our high heels away, get out our riding gear, and get to work on our bike kilometres.

Has your life, or the life of someone you know been changed by Breast Cancer? The National Breast Cancer Foundation is hoping that through the continual support of research programs, there will be no deaths from this terrible disease by 2030. Would you like to support an event which hopes to raise much-needed funds to help their cause? Girls on the Porch are holding their annual fundraising event of a luncheon on Sunday the 20th of October 2013. For $90, you can enjoy a delicious 2-course lunch at the Fremantle Esplanade from 11:00am, with the price of an arrival drink and entry into the door prize included. There will be a number of

raffles and other surprises during the event, so don’t miss out on your opportunity to get in! Tickets are now available for purchase, and can be bought by calling Wendy on 0417 983 695 or Melissa on 0422 352 187. Don’t forget to grab a raffle ticket too!


I often get asked how often you should clip your pooch, and the answer changes almost every time. It really depends on the breed, on how quickly the hair grows, and how active the dog is. If a dog is very active, and likes to roll around in dirt and get wet, then matting will occur sooner. If you have a Shih Tzu or Maltese toy dog, then the hair grows very quickly and will require a lot of work and regular grooming. When looking for signs that it’s time to get out the clippers, keep an eye out for: • Thick hair close to the skin; • Matts behind the ears and under the legs; • Hair growing out from between the pads of the feet. If you notice any of these, it is time to get your dog groomed. It is important to keep

on top of this, especially if you like your dog looking a certain way. If it is left too long, it is impossible for clipper blades to get through matting, and your pooch will get a very short haircut! Grooming is just one of the many things that are important to keeping man’s best friend happy and healthy. Rose-Hip Vital Canine is a 100% natural anti-inflammatory that may be beneficial towards improving the joint health and general well-being of active and aging dogs. It is a powerful antioxidant, a rich source of vitamin C, and is safe, scientifically proven and registered by the APVMA. The unique property of Rose-Hip Vital Canine is the special patented compound which is activated during the patented drying process, causing it to act as natural antiinflammatory. It is made from 100% pure and natural Rosehip fruit, with no additional additives. I have several customers who swear by this product, so I’d like everyone to know about it. I sell this a lot cheaper than retail to my customers, so get in now to save yourself some money! You want the very best for your dog, and we’re prepared to give it. Call me on 0404 485 137 to book an appointment today. We’ll show you why Blue Wheelers is Australia’s first choice in mobile dog grooming.

doz The most talked about events for local Government are the mergers and boundary changes which will SPIT HIRE AVAILABLE take effect from July 2015. The State Government is creating a number of mergers between various suburbs, the pairings of which are as follows: The City of Armadale with Use our Online Booking Form to book your car in for a service today, go to the Shire of Serpentine-Jarrahdale, Gosnells with Canning, Kalamunda with Belmont, and Cockburn with Kwinana. Mergers were meant to help financial viability of Councils, by balancing residential areas with commercial. For example, predominantly residential areas like Kalamunda and Gosnells merging with mostly commercial areas like Belmont and Canning will be quite optimal. In the case of Armadale and Serpentine-Jarrahdale, there are arguably similar amounts of mostly residential/rural/non-commercial areas, so the benefit to each may not be quite as evident. Both Armadale and Serpentine-Jarrahdale have been working towards creating industrial and commercial hubs, but they are not yet so economically successful as Belmont and Cannington, who are too far away for us to merge with. Services and facilities should not change for residents living within merging suburbs. In terms of restructuring the organisations, obviously all the same work has to be done, so it is not likely to be much change Comprehensive Vehicle Maintenance in the positions of most Officers. The biggest change will be the number ✓ Maximise Fuel Efficiency ✓ Maximise Safety ❍ ❍ of Councillors. The maximum number of Councillors allowed per local Government is 15, so several positions will be going. From the ✓ Maintain Existing Warranties ✓ Minimise Breakdowns ❍ ❍ Karragullen/Roleystone/Bedfordale North perspective, this growth in local Government size will mean a growth in ward size. Previously, two MECHANICAL REPAIRS, BRAKES, STEERING, Councillors represented Karragullen and Roleystone, but it may increase SHOCKS, EXHAUST, TYRES & WHEEL ALIGNMENTS further. This could also be relevant to Serpentine-Jarrahdale, which previously had a whole Council for the region, which may possibly be Motor Vehicle replaced by a few wards in a Council of several. On the positive side, the Industry Board hills/rural wards may relatively increase. Repairers & Business Nos: From a planning perspective, my understanding is that the Town Planning Lifetime Warranty Tyres MR1776 & Schemes and Planning Policies will initially all remain the same for MRB2417 each area. These documents are reviewed periodically, and will be kept, expanded, and/or diminished depending on each one. Any specific questions about the merger should be directed to the City Officers at the City of Armadale, on 9399 0111 and at You 11 Wygonda Rd, Roleystone (United Service Station) can also approach the Department of Local Government, on 6551 8700 Eddie Worsnop Servicing Roleystone Since 1999 and at Caroline Wielinga.

ELECTRICAL Domestic Jarrahdale Walks Sunday 25th August 2013 Views & Rambles; Two interesting walks on offer both ending on Baldwin’s Bluff above Serpentine On Sunday the 25th of August, I will be taking interested people on two guided walks through the Serpentine-Jarrahdale area, specifically Baldwin’s Bluff. For the easy one, we’ll be driving up to the top of the scarp (in convoy, so we don’t lose any of you), and walking along the flat ridge, where you can admire the spring flowers and picnic on the rocks way above the Serpentine plain. For the hale and hearty, there is a really steep climb up the scarp, which has the great reward of the views at the top, and will finish with joining the walkers for a BYO picnic. Both walks will take about 2 hours, plus half an hour for the picnic. The walks will begin at the Old Post Office Museum in Jarrahdale, at 10:30am. There will be signs to guide you if you feel lost. Why not make a day of it, and visit the Jarrahdale Country Markets to get your fresh produce? They start at 8:30am, so it all fits in well together. After your walk, why not drive up to the Millbrook Winery or to the Serpentine Dam? Jarrahdale is a super place to spend some time, and the kids will love it just as much as you. We look forward to welcoming you all. If you would like more information, please call me on 0417 357 352, or go to the website www. Warmest regards, Dr Sheila Twine President Jarrahdale Heritage Society.

Melissa Matheson was able to be with us to tell the 50 walkers all about her Turtle Creek project. We then walked ‘round the bridges’ and back to the Centenary Log, and through the new clearing of the park which was duly admired as the dead trees and weeds are gradually going. The rain kept off till after we had sampled lots of different teas, from ginger to peppermint.

New beginners’ courses at Armadale meditation group The local meditation group at Armadale Hospital has been packed to the rafters recently, according to Roleystone resident and the group’s co-ordinator, Rachel Green. “We are having a series of three Beginners’ courses, each lasting four evenings and each taught by the same teacher. Usually we have a different teacher each week, but this can be unnerving for beginners, so this is a new approach for us. The response to it has been excellent.” This is not the only change being introduced within the meditation group. Usually the teachers are all men, specifically the Buddhist monks from the Bodhinyana monastery in Serpentine. However, since they currently on three months retreat, the group has decided to introduce a series of female teaching. Rachel explained, “It is a new development which so far has been well-received.

I am teaching the first beginners’ course and it has been packed, which is very exciting. There is plenty of stress in the Roleystone, Armadale and Kelmscott areas, so I am focusing on how to use meditation to reduce and manage stress and anxiety. The group provides a wonderful and much-needed service to people, which is also free, so everyone can afford it!” Rachel’s course started on Tuesday the 30th of July, and will continue on the 6th, 13th and 20th of August. The second Beginners’ course will begin on Tuesday the 27th of August, and will continue on the 3rd, 10th and 17th of September. The second course will be taught by Sister Hue Can, a Buddhist nun from the Vietnamese Zen Buddhist tradition. She is quite popular. The third course will start on Tuesday the 24th of September, and will continue on the 1st, 8th

and 15th of October. “It is taught by the lovely Pauline Shield, a long time meditation practitioner. She used to be a nurse at the Armadale Hospital, but she’s been retired for many years. She is a delightful person with a very positive outlook, despite all the trials of being a pensioner with rheumatoid arthritis,” said Rachel. The group meets in the Community Health building in the Armadale Hospital grounds, at 7:00pm each Tuesday evening. Sessions usually finish at about 8:35pm. The group has been running for 26 years now, and has many Roleystone residents attending. Everyone and anyone is welcome to come. There is no need to book, and you don’t have to bring anything. If you need any more information, you can email Rachel at armadale@, or call her on 9390 1188 between 9:00am and 1:00pm from Monday to Friday.


“I won’t neglect Canning like Labor and Liberal have,” says Wendy Lamotte Wendy Lamotte, the Palmer United Party candidate for Canning, says her seat is one which is constantly neglected by Labor and Liberal, even though it is championed during their campaigning. “Both Labor and Liberal have a lot to say about Canning in the lead up to an election, yet they never follow through with their promises,” Ms Lamotte said. “The seat needs someone who understands the changing dynamics of the area, and will fight for change in the community. I stand to fulfill that role. I am a third generation Western Australian who has lived in the electorate for over 15 years. I am a mother, a business owner and active community member. I want to do more than just listen, I want to bring positive change to our community by addressing issues which need fixing.” The Palmer United Party aims to: • Ban paid political lobbyists from becoming party officials; • Abolish and refund the carbon tax; • Revise the current Australian Government's refugee policy, to ensure that Australia is protected, and that refugees are given opportunities for a better future and lifestyle; • Create mineral wealth by adding value

through downstream processing in Australia and exporting products at a higher dollar value, thereby creating more revenue, jobs, tax and more facilities for all Australians; • Invest $20 billion into Australian schools and make non-government school fees tax deductible; • Create an NDIS which cares for everyone and does not discriminate on age; • Establish a system whereby if a particular region creates wealth, a significant percentage of that wealth should go back to the region. “During this election, we have the chance to make real change, by voting for a party and a candidate who will deliver,” Ms Lamotte declared. Wendy Lamotte would like to hear from members of the community on any issues that affect the seat of Canning. She can be contacted via her webpage www.

Treating Wobblers Syndrome with acupuncture

By Dr Judith Congrene Early in July this year, I was asked to visit a dog at home for possible treatment with acupuncture. Spencer is a 6 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback, who has been diagnosed with Wobblers Syndrome. Wobblers Syndrome is a severe condition in which there is compression of the spinal cord in the neck region, resulting in a lack of coordination in the back legs. It is usually found in middle-aged large dogs breeds. Spencer had the usual symptoms of wobbly gait and neck pain, as well as weakness in his limbs, with difficulty in getting up and down, and moving around in general. The condition had progressed to involve his front legs as well. Although he has been treated medically at a local veterinary clinic, his owners were

aware that alternative treatment options such as surgery and acupuncture are available, so they sought my assistance to assess and treat Spencer at home. It was very confronting for Spencer’s owners to see their beloved pet in such a distressing physical state. Their first consultation with me involved the physical examination of the patient, assessment of the severity of the symptoms, and how the medication previously prescribed was helping Spencer. In the process, a treatment plan was developed to address the pain and wobbly gait. It’s all very well, having a great treatment plan in theory, but in practice it comes down to whether the patient is willing to cooperate with my plan. Spencer was a star patient for his first treatment, and his owners noticed an immediate improvement. Over the next week, they were delighted to be able to start reducing his medications. Spencer’s medication is now down to a maintenance level, and his owners report that his walking is the best it has been since his original diagnosis. What a great result!

City buzzing about The Hive City of Gosnells’ youth website The Hive was launched on Monday 5 August 2013. The website, which gives under 25s all they need to know about what’s happening locally, has been re-designed with the assistance of several students from Thornlie Senior High School. City of Gosnells Mayor Dave Griffiths said the students’ input had given the website more relevance to young people in the area. “The Thornlie High School group joined the consultation workshops with the web design company to assist in the new format of The Hive,” said Mayor Griffiths. “The result is a more relevant, contemporary and user friendly website that should be a great reference for young people – together with our Facebook page, it gives the City’s Youth Services team a better way to connect.” The Hive will be updated regularly to reflect the City’s range of youth programs and events and will also feature a youth resource page, local films, photographs and stories.

Boy and Head Girl, Liam and Elouise carried the School flag in an entrance procession with students from other Catholic Schools. The Mass was a very special occasion and a fitting beginning to this year’s Festival.

Year 4/5 Theatre Excursion On Monday the 5th of August, the Year 4/5 class from Good Shepherd Catholic Primary School in Kelmscott, went to the Perth Concert Hall to see the production of Shakespeare Shenanigans by the Black Swan State Theatre Company. We had a really long bus drive, but it was all worth it when we went inside the theatre. It really was such a sight! The two actors, who were both men, performed a number of Shakespearean fight scenes. It made us all laugh when they dressed up as women for a fight scene, complete with fluffy skirts and bras over their shirts. After going to the production, the class enjoyed lunch and some play time at Heathcote Point Park. Everyone loved the sea breeze and running around the pirate ship playground. This is a world class playground, and we had a great time!

Time Travelling Students

This term, the Year One students at Good Shepherd Catholic Primary School in Kelmscott are entering an exciting area of the Australian National Curriculum. They will be focusing on Australian history, and looking at distinguishing between the past and present. They have been exploring the differences between schooling in the ‘olden days’ and the present. The students cringed, when they found out that a cane was once used in schools! This week is special for the Year One students and their families, as they kick off News Week. It will be a wonderful opportunity for them to discover what happened to their parents before they were born. The Year One’s are loving being able to use their creativity and imagination as they think about the future. When asked what their homes would look like in the future, Harrison said, “My house becomes a rocket house and is able to go wherever it wants”. We are excited to see how the children’s learning will progress this term.

Over the month of August, more than two thousand entries from Catholic schools all over Western Australia will take part in the Festival. The Performing Arts has a strong emphasis in the curriculum at Good Shepherd, so each class from Year One through to Year Six will participate in the Festival. The school will present a variety of items including choral speech, percussion ensemble, choral singing, and a performance by the School Band.

Roleystone’s Netballers have certainly been busy! Our Under 12’s recently participated in the KDNA Carnival, our JUMP girls Alure Dunsire, Elle Connor, Jamie Hodges and Rachel Charlesworth took to the courts with umpire whistles instead of netballs, and several of our squad umpires will soon be assessed for their National C Badge. Good luck to Sophie Boughton, Kate Bunten and Savannah Prince. In addition, special congratulations must go to Jamie Hodges, Elle Connor and Eleni Arotis for making it into the 12/13 year old Darling Range Regional Squad, and to Caitlin Williams and Kate Bunten for making it into this year’s Darling Range Academy. Awesome effort! The Roleystone Netball Club would like to belatedly welcome Kayla Holroyd and Coral de Snoo to the KDNA and Roley Umpire Squads. Well done girls! A reminder to all our teams that our up-and-coming annual club sausage sizzle/cake stall fundraiser will be held at Ray Owen on Saturday the 24th of August. Parents, please

support your Club in this once a year event. Also don’t forget that team photographs are being done on the same day, so you girls had better come looking your best, and wearing a smile. The Club would like to take this opportunity to thank Ken Walker for auditing the books for 2012. We really appreciate all the time and effort you have put into this time-consuming task. Furthermore, thanks must go to all our fantastic sponsors, who continue to support us. As the season will almost be finished before the next issue of The Valley Reporter goes to print, the Club would like to congratulate all of our teams who will have made it into the finals. Win or lose, you are all winners in our eyes. It’s been an excellent season, thanks to everyone. For enquiries, please contact Club Registrar Sharlene Warnes at, or on 9496 0452.

The experience was rawly confronting, but it was so rewarding to see the excitement and joy that the children got out of it. Drumming is a wonderful medium to interact with children who have special needs. It is so humbling working with orphans who have such a vast range of special needs, and are still so appreciative of the time you spend with them. Students who are willing to practise their areas of study (eg. physiotherapy, social work, occupational therapy, speech therapy, education, etc.) would be ideal candidates to volunteer, but we would still encourage any person who is willing to spend 3 months working with these children to apply. Your time and dedication would be greatly appreciated by both the children and the Thai staff, who are constantly under-manned. Many of the children have the potential to learn new skills, but sadly lack the opportunity. Sometimes it is only with the help of volunteers that the children are able to receive individualised one-on-one learning opportunities so that they may develop their skills. I would like to thank my family and friends for supporting me in this venture. I must also acknowledge the kind support of various local businesses and enterprises, including Genesis Health Club, John Calvin High School, Mulberry Tree Roleystone Daycare, Roleystone Hillbellies, Roleystone Country Club, Roleystone Courier, The Valley Reporter, and WA Treeworks. Together, we have managed to raise $2000 for C.C.D, which will be used to buy drums and other musical instruments for the children. Photographs from our trip can be viewed on C.C.D. Thailand’s Facebook page, and more information can be found at To make a difference to both your life and a child, contact C.C.D Australia’s representative Jill Reitsema at Petra White.

Like it or not, our Council will be amalgamated with the Council of Serpentine-Jarrahdale in about 2 years time. It is hard to know what the exact implications will be for us, but a picture is slowly forming. Serpentine-Jarrahdale is a rapidly growing rural shire, and one of Australia’s fastest growing localities. Their current population is 21,502, and is forecast to reach 50,000 by 2031. Back in the late 1990’s to early 2000’s, by metro standards, the City of Armadale’s rates were very high, since the needs of the community were being financed with very little money coming in. Our roads were being kept at a high standard, but many of our council buildings and other infrastructure were unable to be maintained at a level that was expected. In addition, many other reasonable community requests were unable to be met. In the early 2000’s, the Southern Wungong Structure plan was released, and suddenly we were on our way. Today, the only item that has not yet been fully met in regards to final upgrading is the Armadale Aquatic Centre. I believe Serpentine-Jarrahdale is now at the same stage the City of Armadale was in around 2000. The Serpentine-Jarrahdale Shire will without a doubt be amalgamated into our

area, which has raised some real concerns by residents on both sides. Must we in the City of Armadale, who have already gone through the main financial pain threshold, be forced to take on the additional rate burdens, or accept lesser new facilities and less upgrading of our assets and services, in order to meet the demands of one of the fastest growing locations in the state? Those who will be elected to the new Local Government entity in approximately 2 years, will be working at a much more strategic level due to the areas involved. Roleystone, Karragullen and Bedfordale are the key rural areas represented by our two Councillors, but with the amalgamation of Serpentine-Jarrahdale, (which stretches out to Pinjarra, Kwinana and Rockingham), we will be components of a vast area of the Darling Scarp. Perhaps there will be the need to set up Residents’ Associations, so as to ensure information, issues and concerns are addressed in a timely manner. I believe that since the State Government is going to impose this amalgamation onto the City of Armadale, they should formally agree to commit real significant funding to the new entity for at least 10 years, to ensure that we will not be financially disadvantaged. Anything less is not acceptable. Pat Hart.

Roleystone ‘Spring Clean’ Market & Car Boot Sale The Roleystone Markets is a notfor-profit initiative, which has gone from strength to strength since its humble beginnings. Five local Roleystone women met, planned and began marketing to stall holders and punters alike. The first Roleystone Market was held in March this year, and was an overwhelming success. Held in conjunction with the City of Armadale’s Concert in the Park, the markets had over 1500 people attend throughout the day. The following Winter Market was even busier despite the torrential downpours, with even more people braving the rain. The number of stall holders doubled too. There’s been a wonderful response to the call for volunteers by locals, which is wonderful to see. The Roleystone Markets are now held quarterly at the old Primary School oval, on the corner of Jarrah Road and Robin Road in Roleystone. “We didn’t want to run the markets too frequently,” said stall holders coordinator Catherine Schaefer. “We felt that holding then quarterly would keep them small enough for a volunteer group to maintain, and keep them interesting and new for the public to attend.” The markets offer a distinctive mix of quality art, craft, provisions and produce, most of which is locally made and produced. The last market saw the first “Unique Machine

Display”, with people from all over bringing their unique and interesting machines along for the public to see. This was such a success, that we have decided to open the gates and hold the display again. “We make sure there is plenty for everyone to do, with a bouncy castle for the children, a small animal farm, pony rides, face painting, musical entertainment, delicious food vendors, and all the wonderful stalls.” The next Roleystone “Spring Clean” Market will be held on Sunday the 8th of September, from 9:00am to 2:00pm. It will feature a car boot sale, with bays available to anyone with treasure to sell for only $10. To book a bay, contact Maria Ford on 0407 985 319. Applications to have a stall at the next Roleystone Markets are still being accepted, and they can be obtained by Liking our Facebook Page “Roleystone Markets”, or by emailing roleystonemarkets@

ROLEYBUSHCARE 2013 Volunteer lunch

Roleybushcare – We Salute You I just had the pleasure of reading through an overview of the history of the Roleybushcare group, who were originally set up as the Roleystone Dieback group 19 years ago. The first site they treated for Phytophthora Dieback (DP) was at the Roleystone High School, which was quite successful. The injectors that they had at the time were so cumbersome that the late Mike Beilby designed and manufactured his own hydraulic injector from various engine parts, which proved to be very useful for a good decade. Roleybushcare now uses the commercial tree injectors which have became available. Unless you have been involved with this wonderful group, I do not believe you would fully comprehend their amazing environmental commitment and innovations, as well as the great benefits they have given back to our natural environment. They have ensured that all the Roleystone reserves are named, and have designed and implemented strategic plans to protect every bushland reserve in Roleystone. They have developed a data base to record all aspects of work undertaken on each reserve, and to ensure they are treated against PD every 5 years. Roleybushcare has made certain that every reserve has a custodian to watch over their specific site, report on any concerns, and assist in their management. Since Roleybushcare began, there have been no reported incidences of Phytophthora dieback tree deaths on these reserves.

When conditions are not suitable for the trees to take the injections, Roleybushcare members undertake weeding instead, and have planted hundreds of thousands of trees, transforming our reserves into the wonderful natural assets that they are. In and under storey and have transformed these reserves into wonderful natural assets for us all. By undertaking the weeding programs, they have also assisted in fire management. The Roleybushcare Group holds information days, gives assistance to community groups outside of Roleystone, teaches about PD in schools, works with industry to show how to treat trees, hold fields 11 months of the year, and has created many pamphlets and other information brochures. The Group works closely with the City of Armadale, who own these reserves, and they have a great relationship with the Council Bushcare Team. The community have responded with great support to the groups advertised field days, which always have great turnouts, rewarded by morning tea. Last year they recorded 2320 volunteer hours. As you can see, we are very fortunate to have the Roleybushcare group in our community, safeguarding our natural environment for future generations. Pat Hart - Chairperson, City Armadale Bushcare and Environment Working Group. Pictured (below) Roleybushcare 10th Birthday, includes Mike Beilby.

Roleystone Theatre has had a busy three months. In early June, the Theatre held its second event as part of it’s 80th Birthday celebrations. Our Vaudeville Night attracted a small but lively audience, and featured the talents of Mr Paul Treasure, Ms Donna Williams and Miss T Falls. In July, we held our latest production, a locally written pantomime called “Unwanted Wishes”. Directed by Linda Rhodes, this was a tale of music, mystery and romance. The show introduced several new members to the theatre, and welcomed backed current theatre members Joshua Mitting, Rachael Wright, Jack Barker and Kim Fletcher. This August, we hosted a series of teen workshops, focusing on acting for the screen. The workshops, run by Hayley Parker, are aimed at teens aged 12 and up. In case you missed out this time around, we are hoping to continue to run similar workshops, so keep an eye out for further information early next year. Early in August, we also held auditions for the theatre’s final production of 2013, the much-loved classic “Peter Pan”. We are please to announce casting in the following roles: Peter Pan - Celeste Underhill, Captain Hook - Brad Towton and Mr Smee - Andre Steve’s Unique Victor. Please watch out for further information regarding this show over the next few months. Our next season is Eco Handmade currently in rehearsal, and is a selection of one-act plays and a melodrama, directed by Sherril Wallis, Brad Towton and Gerry Chapman. The performances are for a limited season, on the 6th and 7th of September. Book now at Art & Handycrafts Roleystone Theatre’s Open Day will be on October the 6th, and we’re so looking forward to seeing everyone there. “Storytime in the Hills” will be on the 9th, 11th and 12th of October. Keep an eye out for our November events as well, which will include the performance of “Peter Pan”, and our 80th Birthday Picnic.

La Clinica has a new range of products called White Brilliant, which targets pigmentation to create a luminous complexion. The White Brilliant products are formulated with tyrosinase inhibitors such as Oligopeptide-34 (a biomimetic peptide with growth factors), Vitamin C, Vitamin B3, licorice extract and ellagic acid. Tyrosine is an amino acid involved in every protein of the body, which acts as a building block for important neurotransmitters. Tyrosinase is an enzyme that catalyses tyrosine into melanin, and in some cases, pigmentation. Tyrosinase inhibitors prevent the overproduction of tyrosinase, helping to prevent hyper-pigmentation of the skin. White Brilliant helps to reduce pigmentation caused by photo-aging, as well as dark spots and surgical or postblemish scarring. A combination of biomimetic peptides and polyhydroxy acids gently accelerates exfoliation, whilst stimulating skin growth factors

to reveal a brighter, more luminous complexion. The White Brilliant products are free from the harmful effects of hydroquinone, kojic acid, and other damaging mainstream ingredients usually used for skin lightening. White Brilliant can benefit all ethnic skin types, all skin conditions, and all ages. It is particularly good for dull complexions, and skin with signs of sun damage like uneven skin colour, rough scaly patches, and premature aging. People suffering from hyper-pigmentation, melanoma, secondary melasma resulting from chemical exposure, surgical scarring, acne scarring, post-blemish scarring, and excessive UV exposure, can all benefit from using White Brilliant. White Brilliant products are exclusive to La Clinica. You can buy them from Brackenridge Pure Indulgence, on Soldiers Road in Roleystone. To make an appointment, call 9496 2922.

As a result of both my PhD research and my personal support for bird conservation, I have created a short education animated film and webpage about Baudin’s and Carnaby’s cockatoos, called “A Tale of Two Cockatoos”. As part of my studies, I have been investigating how Australian society values Baudin’s and Carnaby’s, and have discovered why Carnaby’s cockatoos are favoured over Baudin’s. The findings form part of my thesis, which will be published in the near future. This research was funded by The Nature Conservancy Applied Conservation Award 2011, and it is my hope that I can use some of those funds to develop a communication strategy to raise public awareness of the plight of the two cockatoo species, and to help people find practical ways to get involved in conservation efforts. A Tale of Two Cockatoos is the result. On the webpage, I have included links to a number of key conservation and research groups, with brief details on the ways they are helping to conserve the cockatoos.

I have asked these groups to support distribution of the film via their networks. My hope is that people will watch the film, go to the webpage, and be inspired to take some action via these organisations’ activities. The Nature Conservancy is also promoting the film and webpage on their international science blog and Australian Facebook page. This will help to get the film out there and promote Baudin’s and Carnaby’s research and conservation activities to new audiences. Please consider including the film in your own communication strategies, by distributing the webpage URL to your networks, and/or embedding the video on your website or social media page. I will also be distributing “A Tale of Two Cockatoos” via my websites, social media and other networks. I hope you will support the film and look forward to hearing from you. The link to “A Tale of Two Cockatoos” can be found here: au/. Gill Ainsworth.

Five-dollar school holiday fun in the Hills A fun and affordable time for children of all ages will be waiting at Roleystone Theatre during the October school holidays. For only $5, you can treat your children to “Storytime in the Hills”, a performance which features two short plays written and directed by local music teacher Nicole George. “The story called ‘Kyle’s Rainbow Day’ is about a young man named Kyle who decides to wear his favourite shirt to school for free-dress day,” she said. “Along the way he learns it’s okay to be yourself and a little different, as well as some nifty songs about different colours. ‘Caramel’s Sweet Tooth’ is about a lovely, fluffy sweet bear called Caramel, who likes to eat sweets, and nothing else! When he eats one too many sweets at Pretty Dolly’s birthday party, they have to call the Toy Doctor.” A long-time member of Roleystone

Theatre, George also appeared in the Australian premiere of the Southern American comedy “Second Samuel” at the Subiaco Arts Centre in 2010. “I think ‘Storytime in the Hills’ came about last year when we recognised there was a need for theatre shows for our little ones,” she said. “A lot of Roleystone Theatre members have young children, but we were limited in what we could take them to see in the area, so it was suggested we write our own short plays to meet this need.” “Storytime in the Hills” will play at 11:00am and 2:00pm on October 9th, 11th and 12th. The Roleystone Theatre is located at 587 Brookton Highway, Roleystone, opposite the Croyden Road junction. All tickets cost $5, and include a light snack (children under three are free, but must sit on an adult’s lap). To book, call 9397 5730 or go to

Calling all Young Reinventors The Young Reinventor of the Year competition is back, and better than ever. This year’s theme is plastic fantastic and aims to give old plastic a new life by turning it in to a useful invention or beautiful artwork. The Young Reinventor of the Year competition is open to all school aged students in the Cities of Armadale and Gosnells and the Serpentine Jarrahdale Shire. Armadale Mayor Henry Zelones said participants will find out interesting information about recycling and reuse, and learn to think differently about waste and how they consume. “Young people are encouraged to work

as a group to collaboratively create a sculpture, invention or other creative masterpiece from predominantly recycled plastic materials. “This year the competition is online, so it’s even easier to get involved. Just build your creation with your community group or school, get a teacher or group leader to register on the website, upload the photographs and go into the running to win some great prizes from REmida, the Creative Reuse Centre. “The website also includes great ideas and video tutorials on creating with recycled plastic, and you can see last year’s winning entries from St Jude’s Primary School and Southern Hills Christian College,” said Mayor Zelones. For more information or to get involved please visit www.switchyourthinking. com/young-reinventor-of-the-year or call Switch your thinking! on 9397 3208.

Get rid of junk for free There are a number of items the City of Armadale’s Landfill and Recycling Facility on Hopkinson Road in Hilbert will accept free of charge. Items which can be dropped off at the Landfill free of charge: Cardboard boxes (flattened), Scrap metal, Aluminium cans, Batteries, White goods including fridges, washing machines, dishwashers, ovens etc. Glass bottles, Firewood – Eucalypt 400 millimetre blocks Motor Oil (first 20 litres). Armadale Mayor Henry Zelones said the items which the Landfill does take it for free are recyclable. “Items such as fridges, washing machine and ovens can be

recycled. This ultimately reduces waste going into landfill. “This is a great way to get rid of your unwanted items and hopefully will reduce the occurrences of illegal dumping on vacant blocks, reserves and bushland areas. “Residents can also use their free e-waste passes which come with the annual Junk Collection notice to dispose of electronic items such as computer or televisions, which can also be recycled. If you don’t have an e-waste pass you can use a tip pass or your electronic goods can be disposed of for a very reasonable cost,” said Mayor Zelones.

Over the last couple of months, the new 2013/2014 committee has been hard at work, preparing for the start of the season in early October. Last week we had some very successful tee-ball and baseball clinics (in between the showers) at Roleystone Community College, thanks to the coordination of Roger Mills. We would also like to thank Owen Reid, Guy Bellair and Adam Millson from Perth Heat, who came along to the baseball clinic. The children enjoyed the clinics immensely, especially when they got to pitch to the radar gun. Our Registration Days will be held on the here listed dates and times at the Roleystone Shopping Centre. New players, please bring your birth certificate. We look forward to seeing some new recruits, and would encourage anyone with an interest to also attend our Have A Go Day and Meet the Coach Day. We are hoping to field both a Little League and Junior League Baseball team this year, but this depends entirely upon getting coaches, scorers and umpires. Umpires are paid weekly, and a free Umpires course is being held on the 29th of September. We would like to encourage parents to be active with their children at
