YOUR Region. YOUR Magazine. YOUR Valley Reporter. There is bound to be something within this bumper December issue to tempt everyone’s tastebuds. Discover school holiday activities for the children, last minute Christmas gift ideas, end of year school events and school successes as well as Christmas well wishes from many local businesses. So sit back, grab a cuppa and enjoy the read! With modern technology at our fingertips, the WA Police recently launched a smart phone emergency app to encourage people to call the right number for assistance in emergency and non-emergency situations. Turn to page 7 for further details. The Roleystone Twilight Market was yet again a huge success. There are too many people to thank in my editorial, so go to page 12 for a list of acknowledgements and for some colourful snapshots, particularly of the man in red from the afternoon. Leadership roles are about to change at our local Roleystone Karate. Go to page 13 to read the full story. We have acknowledged the transition of Roleystone Community College Year 10 students of 2013 with a colourful centre spread (page 16 and 17) of their recent dinner dance event. The Valley Reporter would like to take this opportunity to wish each and everyone of them all the best in their future endeavours.

Turn to page 21 to see how the Roleystone Men’s Shed Youth Integration Program has been progressing. It’s great to see the community working together. Roleystone Netball Club has taken the December issue of The Valley Reporter as a final opportunity to thank sponsors for their financial contribution to the club in 2013. Without sponsor support, the club would not have been able to offer the best opportunities to all their members. A kind reminder for this holiday season and all year round to keep safety in mind whenever you’re on the road. Finally, with the approach of the festive season, it gives The Valley Reporter great pleasure to extend Season’s Greetings as we wish you all a New Year abounding with Health, Happiness and Prosperity.

OPEN Mon-Fri 8am-4pm

Inbox We are always hearing complaints about irresponsible dog owners and walkers. What about irresponsible horse / pony owners? Recently, there were three young girls riding their horses / ponies along the footpath in Jarrah Road. In Raeburn Road right outside the school entrances, the pavement was littered with horse manure. Should not horse owners have the same responsibility as dog owners? The least they can do is guide their animal off the footpath. Name and Address Supplied. REMINDER: 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.

Roleystone Community College Year 5 student, Callum Walmsley, is celebrating some fantastic sporting success this year. He is the proud holder of the title ‘Year 5 Champion Boy’ in all three sporting competitions in the Dale District interschool carnivals. In March, he won gold for swimming, in September he won the Cross Country competition and finally in November he took out the Athletics gold medal after competing in the long jump, triple jump, 400m, 70m and 200m. It is a wonderful achievement to have won all three titles in the same school year and was a goal he set for himself in February. Roleystone Community College congratulates Callum on his outstanding accomplishment and wishes him all the success for next year.

The most common complaint from neighbours is the level of noise at parties. In Western Australia, it is an offence to create ‘unreasonable noise’, but its definition is left to the police. Factors such as time, location and volume will be critical. If your party is judged to be creating ‘unreasonable noise’, then the police can order a noise abatement direction to stop the noise and heavy fines may be applicable. In Western Australia, there are restrictions

for the use of musical instruments and sound systems – common devices at parties. The restricted times are: • Monday to Saturday: 7pm to 7am • Sunday or Public Holiday: 7pm to 9am This does not limit when you can use such devices, but during these times you must ensure that the volume is low enough not to be heard in a habitable room of your neighbours. Ref: parties.

Artists wanted for City art awards Entries are now open for the City of Gosnells Community Art Exhibition and Awards with a total prize pool of $10,000, including a $5,000 overall award. The annual event, which will be held at The Agonis, in Gosnells, from Friday 7 to 14 March 2014, has continued to attract high quality entries in recent years. City of Gosnells Mayor Dave Griffiths said since its inception in 1992, the City’s Community Art Exhibition and Awards had been a much valued community event. “The awards and exhibition celebrate the wealth of creativity found in the City of Gosnells and the artists, both local and those from further afield, continue to overwhelm the judges with the quality of their work,” Mayor Griffiths said. Previous award winners include local artists Dave Barrett (2012), Wilma Williams (2011) and Merrilyn Ruka (2011). In 2014, artists, photographers and sculptors will compete for a share of $10,000 in prize money, including a $5,000 overall award,

which will be acquired for the City’s art collection. This year’s categories include oils, acrylics, watercolours, pastels, pencils and pens, digital media, mixed media, sculpture, local artist, student and the People’s Choice Award, which is sponsored by Centro Maddington. A new category, called The City in Focus, is being introduced for the 2014 competition to encourage artists to use the City of Gosnells as a theme for their work. Entries close 4pm on Friday 7 February 2014. Fees are $24 per artwork and $5.50 per artwork for students. To find out more about sponsorship packages or the Community Art Exhibition and Awards, please contact the City’s Arts and Culture Development Officer on 9397 3104 or email The Community Art Exhibition and Awards is part of the City’s Homegrown Festival.

Bittersweet success for Waroona farmer over clearing Canning MHR Don Randall has welcomed the announcement by State Environment Minister Albert Jacob that the WA Government will relax outdated laws on land clearing. Changes include increasing the area of native vegetation to be cleared annually for farming projects from 1ha to 5ha and allowing land managers and farmers 20 years to maintain land previously cleared lawfully without applying for a permit, up from 10 years. Mr Randall said the decision would bring some relief to Waroona-based farmer Peter Swift who recently won a three-year landclearing court battle over the Department of Environment and Conservation (DEC). Mr Swift fought against DEC claims that he illegally cleared vegetation from his farm

land despite possessing evidence of aerial photographs showing the land had been cleared prior to his acquisition. “Peter Swift has been the unfair target of bad government policy,” Mr Randall said. “He has been persecuted with the threat of bankruptcy and a jail term and fighting this issue has caused severe emotional stress. “Thankfully the WA Environment Minister has shown sense in this matter and actioned some changes that reduce red-tape and will surely be welcomed by farmers state-wide.” Mr Randall had written to Premier Colin Barnett on the issue of land clearing on behalf of his constituent, Peter Swift, less than two weeks ago. The State Government’s changes will take effect as of December 4th 2013.

Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 NEWS RELEASE

A new smartphone app, Emergency+ is now available to encourage people across the country to call the right number for assistance in emergency and nonemergency situations Tthe app will also help people understand what Is required of them when they make that call for help. The app, which was developed by the Triple Zero Awareness Work Group (TZAWG), a national body that represents emergency call-taking agencies and their Government and industry partners throughout Australia, was specifically designed in response to a number of problems experienced by emergency call-takers and emergency services officers The TZAWG identified that more than 66% of incoming calls to Triple Zero (000) are now made from mobile phones, however callers are often unable to identify their location, meaning call-processing times are longer and call-takers are unavailable to take the next incoming emergency calls, Determining a caller’s location is the most critical piece of information emergency call-takers require. If they do not know where an individual is; they are unable to send help. The Emergency+ app uses the existing

GPS functionality of smartphones to enable callers to provide emergency call-takers with their location as determined by their smartphone. When activated, the built-in accessibility features of a smartphone will describe aloud what appears on-screen, so a caller can use the app without seeing it. Research also suggests that many people are not aware of the State Emergency Service (SES) or Police Assistance Line (PAL) numbers, meaning their default action is to call Triple Zero; tying up emergency call-takers unnecessarily. The app includes the option of calling SES 132 500 and PAL 131 444 numbers, along with details of other relevant national numbers, such as Crime Stoppers and Health Direct Australia. The original prototype of the app was built with initial funding from Fire and Rescue NSW and 360 Entertainment, a software developer that also created the highly successful “Triple Zero Kids’ Challenge” safety game. Subsequent development costs have been covered by a National Emergency Management Project grant from the Commonwealth Attorney-General’s Department.

CAROLS BY TORCHLIGHT AT ARALUEN BOTANIC PARK On Sunday 15 December, Araluen Botanic Park staged its popular annual Bendigo Bank Community “Carols by Torchlight” Christmas event. “With the magical feel of Araluen’s amphitheatre setting, little wonder this stands as arguably one of the premier Carols events in Perth. It was a very special family night with a line up of quality talent and plenty of opportunities for community singing,” said Araluen Botanic Park Foundation general manager, Rod Ross. Blake Williams, a popular Mix94.5 media personality, introduced the evening’s performers commencing with the Town of Victoria Park Brass, which set the mood with a medley of Christmas music. The community singing of carols was led by the beautiful voices of the Carradine Choir and the Roleystone Community College Choir. A special guest appearance by the ever-popular and talented Jay Weston added to the evening’s enjoyment. Although candles were not permitted due to summer fire prevention measures, guests were encouraged

to bring torchlights or alternatively purchase the highly popular and inexpensive LED candles at the venue to illuminate the evening and enhance Araluen’s unique ambience. “We are delighted to acknowledge our event sponsor, Roleystone & Karragullen Community Bank Branch (Bendigo Bank). This partnership offered an outstanding level of support for this popular family event and clearly demonstrates this bank’s commitment to the local community,” added Ross.

White Ribbons A reminder to be safe on the roads this festive season Residents and visitors to the City of Armadale are reminded that they are responsible for being safe road users this festive season. With the holiday period approaching, the City of Armadale is joining forces with WALGA’s RoadWise Program to take part in the White RibbonsTM for Road Safety campaign. The City of Armadale Mayor Henry Zelones said the White Ribbons campaign is focused on promoting the Towards Zero vision in line with the state’s road safety strategy. “Our long term vision is of a road transport system in which no-one is killed or seriously injured,” Mayor Zelones said. “To achieve this vision requires shared responsibility where we all have a role to play in working towards a safe system. “To create a safe system we need to take a holistic approach by managing the interaction between road users, the road, travel speeds and the vehicle. “As part of the safe system, road users are

responsible for behaving safely, obeying the road rules and purchasing vehicles with key safety features. “I am urging residents to make sure they do the right thing on the roads - not to drink and drive, don’t drive tired, wear a seatbelt no matter how short the journey, and don’t speed. To help get the message out there, we distributed White Ribbons at this year’s Carols by Candlelight at Memorial Park, Armadale on Sunday 8 December. The White RibbonsTM for Road Safety campaign will run from 17 November 2013 through until 6 January 2014. You can help raise awareness of the importance of road safety by wearing a white ribbon. White ribbons are available free of charge from participating Local Government offices, police stations and commercial businesses. For more information about the campaign, visit

The inaugural Film and Television Showcase screening saw over 160 guests attend the twilight event held on the Roleystone Community College grounds. The night kicked off with some mingling and movie food provided by the P&C before guests packed into the undercover area, which had been transformed into a cinema to view projects completed by the Film and Television students. Along with viewing the many productions, the audience were treated to some question and answer segments, giving some insight into the student’s experiences throughout the year. Special guests, including Chris Watson, Nicola Renton and Steve Hooton, also added to the night with some great advice for budding young filmmakers. Overall, the evening was a huge success and a night to be proud of for Roleystone Community College. Year 9 Film and Television students did all of the groundwork to make the night a success, so a big thank you must go to them.

Smarter than Smoking Festival Winner - Live Life, Love Life, Don’t Smoke! Armadale Grand Cinema erupted with excitement on Wednesday the 13th of November with a sold out audience attending the Smarter than Smoking Young Directors’ Festival Gala Event. More than 200 community members, students, teachers and families attended the event, which debuted the first screening of youth made anti-smoking television commercials. Six schools participated in this year’s Festival and included Beckenham Primary School, Grovelands Primary School, Kingsley Primary School, Roleystone Community College, Willandra Primary School and Lumen Christi College. The winner of “Best Commercial” for 2013, as judged by a panel of leading WA heath agencies and a Smarter than Smoking youth committee member, was Roleystone Community College. “Live life, love life, don’t smoke!” is the tagline of the winning commercial. The commercial successfully communicates the social costs of smoking. It displays a teenage girl saving money to purchase a ball dress, but her smoking habit takes away from her savings and costs her the chance of attending the school ball. The television commercial will be screened at Armadale Grand Cinema before each movie during the summer. “Best Primary School Commercial” was awarded to Kingsley Primary School for their commercial with the tagline “Be Smarter than Smoking”. This commercial displays a humorous point of view to making the right choice about smoking. All youth made television commercials are now available for

viewing at www.futureinyourhands. Kingsley Primary School student Tyla Knight said, “It is important to send the message that smoking can damage our life. As more and more you smoke, less and less time of life you have”. West Coast Fever Netball Player and Torres Strait Islander rolemodel Josie Janz presented the awards at the Gala Event. Josie said, “I’m excited to be involved in this event again. I’m passionate about promoting healthy life choices for young people, particularly in my community”. Coordinated by the Smarter than Smoking Project and South Metropolitan Public Health Unit in Armadale, the Smarter than Smoking Young Directors’ Festival is an innovative approach to health promotion in the school setting. “In Australia, more than 80% of current adult smokers started smoking before they turned 18, with the average age of uptake just 16 years of age,” Heart Foundation Director of Cardiovascular Health Trevor Shilton said. “Education is vital in preventing youth smoking and the Festival is an innovative way for students to learn about the dangers of smoking”, Manager of Health Promotion at South Metropolitan Public Health Unit Ann Barblett said. The Smarter than Smoking Young Directors’ Festival acknowledges the support of Murdoch University in bringing the students’ ideas to life. If you or other youth would like to become involved in the Smarter than Smoking Young Directors’ Festival in 2014 please email SMART@

It is both a surprise and shock that we are already into December. Where has 2013 gone? This year has been a very busy year for seeing animal patients at home, and I’m delighted to have been able to offer this unique veterinary service. Throughout the year, it has been a great pleasure to meet new furry patients and maintain good friendships with existing clients. From my heart, I am very grateful for your wonderful support and encouragement. After many hours of study in 2012, I was relieved and pleased to pass the exams in Veterinary Acupuncture at Murdoch University. This was a very proud achievement which, combined with regular assessment during the program, completion of a detailed case study and the required hours of internship, leads to the attainment of certification as a veterinary acupuncturist. This program of study has been a time absorbing yet fascinating learning journey. It was the first time the Chi Institute offered this course in Australia. I have despaired of actually ever understanding all the complex theory of traditional Chinese veterinary medicine, but then I smile and wonder at the miracle of acupuncture needles. I am very happy with the results being achieved for small animal and equine patients at home. It is very encouraging and it makes all the hours of study worthwhile.

The Roleystone Market had its final market for the year on Sunday 8 December, and it was a huge success as usual. Coming to the end of our first year, the Roleystone Markets would like to say a big thank you. Thank you to the stall holders who had the courage to book in for our first one, and all the rest since; thank you to the food vendors for feeding us; thank you to the Roleystone Community Garden for ‘sprouting’ us; thank you to Bendigo Bank and Lotterywest for supporting us; thank you to the photographers; thank you to the Valley Reporter for printing us in each edition; thank you to the volunteers, who have directed traffic, marshalled parking, put up gazebos, packed up chairs and swept basketball courts; thank you to the Rev Heads who brought their cars along to show; thank you to the face painters; thank you to Halcyon Stables for your ponies at every market; thank you to our husbands for being forcefully volunteered into jobs for us; thank you to Fineline Signs for all the professional work you have done; thank you to the local shop owners for letting us put up our flyers; thank you to the entertainers who created a great atmosphere; thank you to the community groups for keeping the sausages sizzling and castles bouncing; thank you Santa for coming on such a hot day, thank you Santa’s Bikie Helper for getting him there; and thank you to every other person we haven’t mentioned along the way! But most of all, the Roleystone Markets would like to say thank you to the committee, a

tireless group of ladies, who started with nothing, dreamed big (very big!) and knew that Roleystone had a regular market in it. They have never stopped working, and each and every one of them has put their heart and soul into this successful event. Thank you Roleystone… we will see you next year!

After fifteen years at the helm of Kofukan Karate Roleystone, Sensei Darren Brooke has passed the leadership of the dojo on to one of his most trusted and successful students, Brooke Williams. Sensei Brooke started training at just eleven years of age with Roleystone Karate and has achieved Second Dan Black Belt and repeated tournament success, on both a State and National level. Brooke enjoys teaching karate just as much as competition, especially helping the junior students to achieve.

Darren made the announcement at our annual Christmas party and presentation function, held this year on December 7 at the Roleystone Country Club. He summarised his karate adventures over the years, including taking on the dojo in 1998 as a Brown Belt after the death of his Sensei, Mike Abreu, the days of competition training six times a week, and meeting his wife and fellow Black Belt, Stacy Brooke, that same year, who (thankfully) took over management of the club finances. Darren will be focusing more on his own kids’ activities in 2014, but he and Stacy will continue their active involvement with the club. Getting back to the Christmas party, it was a great success, with professional DJ Mark Hollings getting the kids (and many adults) out on the floor. There was also a bucking sheep, bouncy castle and loads of food. The deserving winners of the annual club trophies were as follows: Senior Mike Abreu Award – Grace Warnes Junior Mike Abreu Award – Maddison Kirby Senior Most Improved – Jack Warnes Junior Most Improved – Brandon Didsman Junior Most Improved – Melanie Pleysier Encouragement Award – Jorja Hancock Encouragement Award – Charlotte Kirby Encouragement Award – Caitlin Rowe The last gradings for the year were held the previous week, with the senior grading taking place on 1st December in front of a panel of association black belts. Kate McWalter deservedly achieved her 1st kyu brown belt after battling brain surgery in June this year, and juniors Kayne Watkins, Grace Warnes, Jack Warnes, Eve Williams, Maddison Kirby, Kias Young and Lochlan Mackay all earned their 2nd kyu brown belts. With so much up and coming talent, the future of Roleystone karate is looking great. According to Sensei Darren, the club is much better off with a new Sensei who is two decades younger, much better looking...and has a lot more hair. Pictured top: Kate’s kata-senior grading.

There was great excitement at Good Shepherd Catholic Primary School on the afternoon of Wednesday, 11 December as the students in Kindergarten through to Year Three gathered to present their “Christmas Celebration”. The festive season felt like it had truly arrived as the Pre-Primary and Kindergarten students performed a delightful presentation of Christmas songs with much vigour and enthusiasm. The stable at

Bethlehem was definitely the place to be. The students in Years One, Two and Three then presented a nativity play called “The Landlord’s Cat”. This interesting version of the story of the birth of baby Jesus was told by the landlord’s cat, who was expertly played by Travis in Year Three. A supportive audience of family and friends certainly helped encourage the students to perform magnificently and make it an afternoon to remember.

On Monday 9 December, Year Six students from Good Shepherd Catholic Primary School Kelmscott visited the residents at River Gardens Nursing Home. The students sang a collection of Christmas songs and carols to the residents. In addition to their choral performance, one of the students presented a cheerful rendition of ‘Frosty the Snowman’ on the flute. There were a few damp eyes as the residents sang along with two of

the students playing ‘Have Your Self a Merry Little Christmas’ on their clarinets. After their performance, the students enjoyed the opportunity to chat and mingle with the residents. In a week where the students were focusing on the excitement of graduation activities, spending time with the residents was an important reminder of how important it is to take time to value and appreciate the elderly members of our community.

St Vincent De Paul Good Shepherd Catholic Primary School in Kelmscott once again participated in the Saint Vincent de Paul food drive for people who don’t have enough at Christmas. The school Library Team, consisting of Year 6 students and Mrs Lucia Miller,

were in charge of the drive. They went around every recess to collect many donations of food and Christmas goodies from the classrooms. The school community is to be congratulated for their generosity and for helping others less fortunate in the festive season. Written by the Library Team

How the Roleystone locals like it

The Club continues to go from strength to strength. New member numbers continue to rise in leaps and bounds as more Roleystone families try out the newly refurbished Club premises and find the restaurant, bar facilities and live music on Friday nights to their liking. The Kids Christmas Party will be held on the 22nd of December featuring Drippy the Dragon, a huge bouncy castle, Father Christmas arriving on a fire truck, live music, face painting and a sausage sizzle with drinks and eats available. Make sure you put this date in your diary, with the fun getting under way at 11.00am and continuing on through the afternoon and into the early evening. The kids’ room is now the proud owner of a fantastic Disney mural, completed by our local artist Vicky Alchin, on the wall of the room. Come and check out this magnificent mural. With Christmas fast approaching, the Club will be decked out with the Christmas theme, and to complement this, our restaurant “Windows on Wygonda” has introduced its new summer menu. Ring up and book any Wednesday, Friday or Saturday to ensure you get a good table, as we are experiencing large numbers in the restaurant on each of these nights and we don’t want anyone to miss out. The number is 9397 5665. This month we also have many local organisations using the Club for their Christmas wind-ups and

others for Christmas drinks and nibbles. We also have the “Chase the Joker” Jackpot on Monday and Wednesday nights, which is now up to $2,900 with many members and guests hoping to win the money before Christmas. As this is our last newsletter for the year, we wish all our members a very Happy Christmas and a peaceful and prosperous New Year. For all information on the Club’s activities, check out our Facebook page or go to our new website at roleystonecountryclub@iinet. com. I look forward to seeing you at the Club.

The City of Armadale commenced the Keane Rd Public Environmental Review (PER) on December 9th 2013. A PER is an assessment level of the Environmental Protection Authority given when “a proposal is likely to have a significant effect on the environment”. In this case the City of Armadale is proposing a road through the Anstey-Keane Damplands adjacent to the internationally protected Lake Forrestdale. The Anstey-Keane Damplands were listed for protection by the State Government in 2000 under Bush Forever and Bush Forever encouraged “responsible authorities to undertake a review of existing road reserves that affect Bush Forever sites to identify the scope to accommodate bushland protection”, however the City of Armadale’s 2001 Southern River, Forrestdale, Brookdale, Wungong District Structure Plan still showed the road reserve through the Bush Forever Damplands. In 2005 the State asked the City of Armadale to initiate road closure procedures as part of the Jandakot Regional Park Management Plan, however the Council of the day directed the City not to because “If residents of this development [North Forrestdale] are forced to use Ranford and Nicholson Roads as access to Armadale, they will quickly look to other areas north and west in preference to Armadale for goods, services and community facilities” (Jan, 2005). So instead of encouraging the use of the major dedicated roads of the area (Ranford/ Nicholson/Armadale), the City of Armadale has prepared documents for the PER project that proposes a road through the Bush Forever Damplands, reducing the travel distance from North Forrestdale to Armadale by 1.95km and costing over $2million (April 2013).

As of Tuesday 12th of November, Roleystone Community Youth Workers, Stuart Hight and Joyce Arnott teamed up with the Roleystone Men’s Community Shed to bring the Men’s Shed Youth Integration Program. The Skateboard Build program lasts for six weeks, and has enabled youth to build their own premium skateboard deck and learn hands on skills in the shed from our local men’s shed members. For a small fee, youth have participated in the program and will soon own their personal, handmade deck. The Valley Reporter was invited along to check on their skateboard building progress. In conjunction, the Valley Reporter has recently been in contact with Ben Bowring, the WA State Manager from Skateboarding Australia. He has informed us that he is currently making some adjustments to the summer skateboarding rosters in an attempt to include Roleystone, which may result in changing some details of the Armadale clinics. So watch this space...

Without your support and belief, we would not be have been able to offer the best opportunities to all our members. Special thanks to Kab Seating, Tony Simpson MLA Member for Darling Range, Beaver Tree Services, Openica Logistics, Metro Mobility, Rainstorm Dust Control and Roleystone Branch of the Bendigo Bank, who will be helping to sponsor new equipment and new team bibs in 2014. After winter comes spring and our spring season is now coming to an end. Well done to all the girls who have committed to playing and umpiring for those extra few weeks. The KDNA spring season was rather short and finished with a sausage sizzle on the last day. However, Roleystone also had three teams competing in the Southern Districts Netball Association (SDNA) spring season in Langford. Since many of the girls played in both competitions (and umpired), you are all L-R: Caitlin Williams, Heidi Blackman and Laura Blackman. to be admired for your

passion and dedication! Once again, well done to everyone, and a special mention to our Junior 1 team who will play in the Grand Final next week. This is the third year these girls have played in the Grand Final (winners in 2012). Good luck girls! Finally, a very special mention goes to Caitlin Williams, Laura Blackman and Heidi Blackman. These three girls are representing WA at the National Indoor Netball Tournament in Sydney. Caitlin secured herself a place on the Under 16’s Indoor State Team, while Laura and Heidi are part of the State Indoor Junior Umpiring Squad. The girls have had their work cut out for them with long days at the Indoor Centre and some very intense, high-powered netball games. What an amazing opportunity for these young ladies. Fantastic effort girls!
