their skills and experience in a positive way. (Ref: volunteeringwa.org.au). Volunteers are wanted at the Woodlupine Family and Community Centre in Forrestfield.

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. 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. For The VALLEY Reporter’s “Inbox Letters to the Editor” full list of guidelines go to; www.thevalleyreporter.com.au/letters.

On behalf of the Leukaemia Foundation in WA, I would like to thank your readers who participated in and supported the World’s Greatest Shave 2014. Thousands of brave children, adults and seniors from WA signed up to shave, colour or wax their hair to help fellow Western Australians affected by leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma and related blood disorders. As the Leukaemia Foundation receives no

ongoing government funding, the funds raised by the community and corporate sector are vital for the continuation of our free support services for families affected by blood cancer. Each year, the Foundation supports thousands of people and their families by providing free services including: information, education, emotional support, transport and accommodation for regional families required to relocate closer to city hospitals. We also invest millions of dollars each year into vital blood cancer research. In WA we hope to raise over $2.95 million. Thanks to all of our supporters, we are on our way to reaching our goal. There is still time for people to sign up or make a donation by visiting worldsgreatestshave. com. For the 23 Western Australians projected to be diagnosed with blood cancer or a related blood disorder every week, your readers’ support of the World’s Greatest Shave will make all the difference. On behalf of these families, we thank you. Yours sincerely, Andrew York, General Manager WA Leukaemia Foundation.

I want to ask for some respect from the owners of our four-legged friends, who need to take responsibility, and ensure that their neighbours are not continually annoyed, upset, and distressed by having to listen to constant barking from first morning til night, day after day. This is not only irresponsible of the owners, but simply unkind to our four-legged friends, as their continuous barking creates agitation, anxiousness, and sore throats within their own bodies. Please consider those who are shift workers, the aged, the unwell, and others who happen to be at home daily, because your pets create disturbances to the unique and tranquil area which we have the privilege to be a part of. That’s all. It’s simple. Stop being selfish, and consider all creatures great and small, including your neighbours. Name and Address Supplied.

It has been a year since the tragic death of Ryan Birch, a death which spurred his family members, Russ, Ruban and Lu Lu, to compete in the 2013 Dunsborough X Adventure Race, in his memory. On Sunday the 23rd of March 2014, Ryan’s family members Russ, Ruban and Adelle once again entered the X Adventure Race. Ruban took the first leg of the 1.5km ocean swim, struggling against 2 metre high swells, high winds, and plenty of cloud cover. Despite the unfavorable conditions, he managed to make great time (29 minutes and 28 seconds), and gave his sister Adelle a good start for her 12km run. Adelle ran over the rocky beach, into the ocean, back to the beach, and up and down the hills. Unfortunately she took a hard fall in the 4kms, but managed to get past the pain and finished strong, giving Russ a good start to ride his 22km mountain bike ride. Russ took over a few people on the upward stretch, racing through to the finish line in 1 hour, 26 minutes and 33 seconds. The Birch family came in 12th place, in a field of 49. It was a tight race, with the winning team finishing in 2 hours and 56 minutes, and the Birch gang finishing at 3 hours and 31 minutes. Once again, the Birch family gave everyone a run for their money! The Roleystone Girl Guide unit is looking for an amazing lady to help nurture, guide, and lead this group of charismatic young ladies. Girl Guides is an organisation that helps build confidence, skills and independence in girls and young women. It is fantastic that we have a Girl Guide unit here in Roleystone, but one leader is not enough to keep a unit going. If you would be interested in volunteering, or know of anyone who would be interested in volunteering, we would love to have you on board. There are so many places that guiding can take you as a leader! Seniors are very much welcome as well! Check out this link to learn more about what is involved: www. girlguideswa.org.au. Please feel free to contact me, Janice Mclean, at roleystone.girl.guides@gmail.com.

“Heaven in the Hills… An extraordinary garden in a breathtakingly beautiful setting”

THE PERFECT SCHOOL HOLIDAY ACTIVITY at Araluen Botanic Park, Roleystone Araluen Botanic Park, Roleystone is the perfect location for indulging the kids in a fun, wholesome, educational and environment-friendly adventure during the autumn school holidays. From 10am to 2pm on the Tuesdays, 15th and 22nd April, our dedicated team of qualified volunteers will conduct a range of “Tulip” - themed activities, including Discovery Trails, Clay Modelling and Craft. “The fantastic value remains with fees at just $3 children and $4 adults. This includes Park entry and all materials,” says Rod Ross, General Manager, Araluen Botanic Park Foundation. This popular program features: • Between 10am and 11.30am – the opportunity to participate in 3 discovery trails; • Between 12.45pm and 2pm - clay modelling and craft;

• Educational activities to explain important environmental issues. Children are required to have their own adult supervision and it is strongly recommended that closed in shoes, hat and sunscreen are to be worn. Araluen Botanic Park is open every day from 9am to 6pm.

The Kaarakin Black Cockatoo Reforestation Project involves the restoration of a 38 hectare site of black cockatoo habitat within Banyowla Conservation Park in the Perth foothills. The project will focus on native plant species known to be important to the feeding, breeding and roosting cycles of the three endangered/threatened black cockatoo species unique to the southwest corner of WA. By reforesting an old orchard and grazing property in Banyowla Regional Park the project also enhances local flora and fauna, and forms an important carbon sink. Area for Reforestation Carbon Neutral will reforest and revegetate cleared areas of highly degraded land with the Banyowla Conservation Park with a mix of native species that match the surrounding bushland. A priority will be placed on native plants and trees such as banksias, dryandra, hakea, grevillea, eycalyptus species (including sheoak, marri, jarrah and wandoo) that provide a long-term food source for black cockatoos. Volunteer Opportunities Only 40 minutes drive from Perth CBD, in an area of natural beauty with sweeping

views over the swan coast plain, this planting project offers excellent corporate volunteer opportunities. Groups will have a hands on experience getting involved with planting of revegetation areas in the winter of 2014 and will learn first-hand about the importance of biodiversity in Western Australia, Volunteers will receive a tour of the Black Cockatoo Conservation Centre situated adjacent to the planting area and learn how they will be directly assisting with conservation efforts to help black cockatoos. “The importance of restoring biodiversity cannot be underestimated - through the revegetation of degraded areas in Banyowla Conservation Park we are able to provide much needed feeding, roosting and nesting habitat which is critical for ensuring the survival of the black cockatoos that aggregate on our coastal plain.” Sonya Creese, Environmental Projects Manager, Kaarakin Black Cockatoo Conservation Centre.

Get up to awesome antics this school holidays

Now Available

The City of Gosnells’ Awesome Antics program will make sure young people aged 12 to 17 years won’t be bored this school holidays. With outings to places including the new Bounce trampoline centre in Cannington, Battlezone Laser Combat and Supa Golf and some in-house workshops, the program is a great place for young people to increase social and life skills and meet new people. City of Gosnells Mayor Dave Griffiths said the Awesome Antics program was always popular in the holidays. “This year we have some great workshops including video game making and a photography workshop explaining how to get the most out of your smartphone camera,” said the Mayor. The photography workshop, held by professional photographer Luke Thompson, will incorporate an outing based workshop which will give participants tips on how to improve their photography with whatever camera they’re using. They will then be taught how to edit the photos with software and share them on to social media platforms. The Awesome Antics School Holiday Program provides leisure activities for 20 young people a day, with five places reserved for people with a disability. The program is restricted to young people who live or go to school in the City of Gosnells. Staffing, travel and a meal is provided each day and the cost is kept low to ensure the program is accessible to all. Bookings are essential. Ref: www.gosnells.wa.gov.au.

adverse effects on the heart, and can interact with many medications (including heart and blood pressure medications). It is always best to consult your pharmacist. Sore throats are a common complication of the common cold. Use of aspirin gargles, antiinflammatory lozenges and iodine gargles can relieve symptoms rapidly. Again, check with your pharmacist if such medications are appropriate for you. Prevention is always better than a cure. Resting and avoiding close contact with others, as well as covering mouths and noses when coughing and sneezing, reduces spread of infection through the community. There are many natural remedies available which help to boost our immune system (natural defenses), so that we are less likely to succumb to cold symptoms. Included amongst the products are the herbs Echinacea, angiographis, garlic, as well as vitamin C and zinc. If you are unfortunate enough to catch a cold, always check with your pharmacist, and always tell them what medications you are taking.

news, and happily it meant that Ruby could chase her ball – her most important focus in her daily life. Over the next few months, there were some setbacks and at all times, my work with Ruby included ongoing discussions with her family as to how far we could help her to improve her quality of life. This is very difficult to determine when such a bright little bundle of kelpie seems so determined to just keep going. Shona expressed her gratitude for the extra time she was enjoying with Ruby, and the time which also allowed the family to prepare themselves to let her pass when she needed this. A combination of circumstances, including the onset of seizures, resulted in the decision to help Ruby pass to Rainbow Bridge. Rest in peace, Ruby. You were a bright shining star patient.

Last year I was asked to visit a very bright and active little kelpie called Ruby. Her Mum Shona asked me if I thought acupuncture could help Ruby, as she had reached the end of the conventional treatment options at the veterinary hospital, unless further diagnostic work up was done with a view to later surgery. Ruby was having a difficult time controlling her legs, due to a loss of control in the nervous system, which sends messages to and from her brain. It was likely that a possible injury to her neck about 2 years earlier was the cause of the symptoms, and the long term nature of the condition meant a poor prognosis for getting Ruby back to a normal gait. I videoed her most unusual gait, and thought how amazing it was that she was able to get around at all, yet her attitude and spirits were bright and enthusiastic. Keeping Ruby still for her acupuncture was a bit of a challenge, but with repeated treatments, this clever little dog worked out that she felt better after this strange process, and was more co-operative. One day she even presented her back to me, as if she was saying “I’m ready” for her needles. The first treatments brought the feedback of increased strength in the front legs, and overall improved confidence. This was good

MOSQUITOES: BIOLOGICAL CONTROLS

Research shows that natural predators for mosquito larvae in our waterways and wetlands are an effective way to manage their numbers. The problem we currently face in many locations is that very poor water quality plus chemicals have severely reduced many natural predators and allowed the mosquito numbers to reach unacceptable levels. There is a large amount of scientific investigation and trials being undertaken throughout the world to address biological applications as a component of an integrated approach to mosquito control. Some of our native fish eat mosquito larvae, but native fish are on the rapid decline due to poor water quality and degradation of waterways and wetlands. The introduced fish – Gambusia – doesn’t eat mosquito larvae but instead eats native macro invertebrates, fish eggs and some small native fish. Some frogs play a vital role, but like our native fish, they too are under pressure. One of the success stories in biological control is copepods, a group of very tiny crustaceans

CORNERSTONE

found in the sea and most freshwater habitats. They are typically only 1 to 2 millimetres with a teardrop shaped body and large antennae. While they generally tend to feed on a mixed algal diet, they also eat mosquito larvae. Copepods are very easily grown and therefore can be economically used in many areas to reduce mosquito numbers. Copepods have been effective in waterways in New Jersey and Louisiana USA, successfully trialled in north Queensland and currently trialling in South Australian waterways. In North Vietnam, where the use of chemicals has been prohibited since the war, rice growers place copepods in streams next to the rice fields, which have proven to be very successful in their fight against Dengue fever. SERCUL believe that, given the simplicity of growing copepods, they are worth trialling in WA, and is looking for partners to undertake a project to prove they are suitable to use in an integrated approach to mosquito control in this State.

The Year Six students at Good Shepherd Catholic Primary School in Kelmscott have just returned from the school’s annual Year Six Camp. The four-day camp started bright and early with a train ride to Fremantle, where students divided into two teams and participated in a treasure hunt around some interesting sites in the port city. These sites included the Roundhouse, Maritime Museum, Fremantle Prison and the Shipwreck Galleries. There was great excitement as the students examined the Welcome Walls in search of the illusive Robert Doyle,

learning that he travelled to Fremantle on a ship called the Himalaya. It was a weary group of campers that arrived at the very picturesque Point Walter campsite in the afternoon. Their tired walking legs were soon revived with a swim in the camp’s beautiful pool. The students revelled in three days of exciting activities such as paddling in canoes, testing their archery skills, zooming down the flying fox, reaching great heights in crate climbing and orienteering. The camp gave students a fabulous opportunity to challenge themselves and grow

as individuals through working together and supporting each other as a team. The Year Six class teacher Mr Chris Burns was exceptionally proud of the student’s fine behaviour and commended them on their willingness to embrace all the exciting opportunities that the camp had to offer.

Budget The City of Armadale has started its budget workshops and planning earlier this year. So far the main areas to be looked at are the Technical and Community directorates these hold most of the interest to residents because they are in charge of many of the obvious aspects of the Local Government such as the parks, footpaths, roads and community buildings for Technical and the coordinating services for art, tourism, events, libraries, rangers, volunteers, families, youth, seniors and more for Community directorate. So far some possible highlights for the next years budget include ongoing upgrades to the Jull Street mall - the lighting and paving needed upgrading, but the vision is for more finishing touches than just the “nuts & bolts” with preliminary reports suggesting some artwork (still in design phase). The Kelmscott CBD is still on the budget for landscaping and entry statements and there may be other landscaping works funded for other main highways and roads of the City of Armadale in an effort to continue to improve amenity. These are unfortunately more expensive than one would expect due to traffic management costs. There are also proposals to start funding public art projects both the classical statue/structure style and some urban art for underpasses.

Urban Development Institute of Australia Conference

I recently attended the Urban Development Institute of Australia Conference and was very impressed with the lineup of speakers. There was both the immediate past town

planner from New York City and the town planner who designed Singapore and many Chinese cities and further abroad. The common theme from these eminently qualified planners was how towns and cities must be designed - as silly as this sounds - for people - it means for pedestrians not cars and for communities not just individuals - public places where people do what we like best - being together - or at least amongst each other. Another interesting theme related to the densification of Australian cities starting obviously with Sydney and Melbourne they have finally reached the point where people would just rather be in a town house closer to town than the length of a gazillion freeways and highways away in a house. There were also interesting economic talks about the mining boom and of course China our main trading partner the reason for the boom. Some negative talks about the end of the boom and some more moderate so I was not left feeling totally confident the boom was over, slowing down or steadying. There were also some mentions of art, amenity and nature and their value in our towns and community, which was refreshing as many Australian places seem like they’ve been built in such a hurry there was no time for frills, so maybe that’s changing, maybe even in our own City of Armadale. Disclaimer: This represents the understanding of Cr Wielinga, for any additional information please feel free to contact the City of Armadale.

Do you go to your Doctor to get healthy or to get drugs? Dr Peter Dingle’s talk at the Roleystone Family Centre really made me think. He posed some questions about my health and how I am looking after myself. Do I go to my doctor to get healthy or to get drugs? Why is the air inside my own home 10 times more poisonous for me to breath than the air outside my home? Where am I going to get the minerals that my body needs to repair itself if there aren’t any in my water or my food? Why is it that I can’t lose weight despite lots

of calorie counting and dieting? Why are our children getting sicker with more serious diseases like arthritis etc? Approximately 60 other people enjoyed this very entertaining talk and I am really looking forward to the upcoming talks that the Roleystone Family Centre are hosting focussing on the answers to these questions and many more.

My partner and I moved to the hills above Kelmscott in November, and I’m pleased to receive this local magazine. I’ve noticed requests for information on people in our community. Well, this is a bit odd, because I’m writing to “nominate” myself, but my motives are right (I hope!). I’m an elite level ultra distance runner. I have represented Canada and Australia at international events in long distance running (e.g. 80km trail, 24 hour running). I have broken several national records. The primary reason I thought it might be good to get a mention in the magazine is because I really hope to promote healthy living and fitness. I don’t expect anyone to become a “freak” runner like me, but I started with the simple goal of running a few kilometres to burn off the wine and chips. I certainly never thought I’d be any good at it! I also run the Perth Trail Series, which conducts bushrunning events. Some of these are in our local area. So, if there is interest from the magazine’s perspective, I’d love to have the opportunity to try and inspire a few more people to get out the door into nature and run for a bit of fitness and fun. Regards, Bernadette Benson.

Join two of Australia’s best garden designers, Jenny and Neil Delmage, on Thursday 22 May for an evening at the Kalamunda Library as they talk about their stunning third book “12 Gardens: Creative Designs for the Australian Climate”. Their latest book features twelve new gardens from their highly successful business of creating waterwise, biodiverse and gorgeous gardens that fit the natural environment. The Delmages answer the question: in Australia’s dry climate, how do you create and maintain a beautiful yet waterwise garden? CEO Rhonda Hardy said, “We are delighted to have two of Australia’s gardening experts as special guests at the Library, as I’ve no doubt there are many gardening enthusiasts throughout the Shire who would enjoy and benefit from hearing Jenny and Neil’s talk.” “The Delmages’ unique approach emphasises soil preparation, waterwise and sustainable gardens, plant mix, range of garden types and budgets, and their authentic and innovative gardening style is reflected in this book.” “We invite residents to join us for this exciting evening, which will include time for questions following the presentation. Dymocks will also be present on the day and will have books for sale and author signing,” she said. “12 Gardens” features new, handson information about Better’ each garden, including plant lists, soil types, garden orientations, design plans, and client

briefs. Each garden is also shown in a simple yet stunning layout, with over 240 gorgeous photographs on display throughout the book. For the first time, the range of gardens in this book includes not only urban, suburban, coastal and country, but commercial and historic properties too. The evening will run from 6:00pm to 7.30pm and light refreshments will be provided. Dymocks Midland will have books available for purchase on the night. Bookings are essential. Contact the Kalamunda Library on 9257 9969, email kala.shire@kalamunda. wa.gov.au or call in to the library at 7 Williams Street in Kalamunda. Ref: www.kalamunda.wa.gov.au.

The RMC has a Big Outdoor Stage We just bought a massive 8m x 6m stage this month for outdoor gigs. A stage of this size would normally cost over $1000 to hire for a day - normally out of the reach for a lot of non-profit community and fundraising events. The plan is to make it available for member bands and the local community. It’s a big deal for us, as the Roleystone Musicians Club does not receive any grant money or any other handouts. We managed to acquire this asset thanks to the $5 door tickets. Thanks to www.antoniosplace.com.au for giving us a good price! If you need a stage for an event, contact info@rmcwa.com.au.

This May, Roleystone resident Patricia Bona will appear in a play from the author of the Academy Award-winning To Kill A Mockingbird screenplay. Written by Horton Foote and directed The VALLEY Reporter proudly supports the ROLEYSTONE THEATRE by Kim Martin at Roleystone Theatre, The Trip To Bountiful is a poignant story of an ageing widow unhappily living with her son and daughter-in-law in a small city apartment. She longs to return to the town of Bountiful where she grew up and finally manages to make the journey with the audience, discovering more about her early life and disappointments along the way. Originally written for television in 1953, The Trip To Bountiful made its Broadway debut the same year and scored Tony, Theatre World and Outer Critics Circle Awards.

“Mrs Watts has become strong-willed and determined. “She has a warm heart that has become more and more angry and frustrated, following years of interactions with her daughter-in-law, far away from her beloved home of Bountiful.” With 40 years of acting in various plays and musicals around Perth, Mrs Bona is a life member of Roleystone Theatre and sings professionally with Musicantes – a group that sings at corporate functions, outdoor concerts and backyard parties. The Trip To Bountiful appealed to her because of the variation of emotions needed to portray Mrs Watts. “It’s been a great challenge to grasp the frustration and depth of emotion she feels in re-living her life during her trip back to her home town,” Mrs Bona said. “And I’ve always enjoyed working with the director Kim Martin in the past in many productions over the years.” Mr Martin said he first saw the movie version many years ago, thinking it a beautiful and moving story. “The Trip To Bountiful deals with many issues that people face at one time or another in their journey through life, whether it’s lost dreams, lost love, disappointments or family tensions,” he said. “They’re all dealt with in a very compassionate yet realistic way – most audience members will find something they identify closely with.” The Trip To Bountiful plays at 8pm May 9, 10, 14, 16 and 17 with a 2pm matinee May 11. Tickets are $20, $15 concession. To book, please call 9397 5730 or visit www.roleystonetheatre.com.au. Roleystone Theatre is located at 587 Brookton Highway, Roleystone, opposite the Croyden Road junction.


Tensions run high in courtroom classic

This May, former Roleystone Theatre performer Warren McGrath will appear in the timeless courtroom classic Twelve Angry Men. Adapted from the Reginald Rose teleplay by Sherman Sergel and directed by Vanessa Jensen at Melville Theatre, the play is set in a jury deliberation room on a sweltering hot New York evening in 1957, where 12 unnamed men must decide the fate of a young man accused of murder. First created for television in 1954, Twelve Angry Men became a stage play the following year and then a feature film with Henry Fonda in 1957. McGrath plays juror two, a young mild-mannered working family man. “He lacks confidence and is easily led by strong personalities and detailed arguments,” he said. “Juror two is the sort of person who seeks the approval of the group and can lack the courage of his own convictions. “He’s a good person at heart and I hope I portray him as a rounded character with a number of redeeming strengths. “I want to ensure the part does not become a caricature and that the juror comes across as a genuinely real person who struggles with his confidence and conviction.” Performing on and off for the past

10 years, McGrath has appeared with Old Mill, Stirling, Melville and Roleystone Theatres. “Twelve Angry Men appealed because I have worked with Vanessa Jensen before and liked the idea of being directed by her in a more serious role,” McGrath said. “The opportunity to work in a strong male ensemble cast, in a serious play, was also attractive.” Jensen said she had wanted to direct Twelve Angry Men for years, after a production at the 2004 Perth International Arts Festival. “I studied the play at school and university because it’s considered a classic – it’s played in real time, which is unusual, and helps to create tension,” she said. “But the main appeal is that it remains a powerful and compelling play as relevant today as it was in the 1950s, despite more than 50 years of progress, bias and prejudice still colouring legal proceedings all over the world.” Twelve Angry Men plays at 8pm, May 2, 3, 8, 9, 10, 15, 16 and 17 with a 2pm matinee May 11. Tickets are $20, $15 concession. To book, call 9330 4565 or visit www.meltheco.org.au/Bookings. html. Melville Theatre is on the corner of Stock Road and Canning Highway, Palmyra.

MAGIC HANDS MASSAGE

The idea started when my three boys played State Rugby. I gave them each a massage or two after their games, and they thought I was very good. So, I took my course in massage therapy and now that the boys have left school, I have started my new career as a masseur. With council approval granted, I am now starting my own business from home. I love my work and feel as though I can bring healing to those that pass through

my door. My new company is called Magic Hands Massage. I massage both men and women. I am situated right opposite Roleystone Community College – why not treat yourself with a massage while you wait for your children to finish school? I hope the residents of Roleystone will try me out or even buy a voucher for someone they love. My phone number is 0431 118 244. Regards, Lu Lu.

EASTER FUN DAY Easter came early for Roleystone Community College's gorgeous students in the Kindy/Pre-Primary blocks on Tuesday 8 April with a fun filled activity day. It kicked off with an Easter Hat Parade, with some fabulous creations worn by some very proud looking students. All the colourful hats were made in class, with some of them sporting some yummy treats! The Parade was followed by a rotation of Easter activities, with a number of parents joining the fun and helping to run a station. It was a fabulous day and a great way to finish Term 1, with Term 2 starting for students on Tuesday 29 April.


RCC Expo Evening

PAGE 27 – © Kiwi Enterprises (WA) P/L as the Trustee of the Newland Family Trust t/as The Valley Reporter

The third annual RCC Expo Evening was an outstanding success, with hundreds of parents coming to the College and visiting classrooms in the Primary and Secondary blocks. All the rooms looked amazing - colourful, informative and interesting. In Block 5, Mr Tingey had the Cadet Bushrangers on show, the Gym was popular, and in Block 7, Ms Rajor was conducting experiments in the Science Lab. Many students were very busy using their Passport Activity Sheets to log their journey across the night. The Passports had to be stamped at each activity by the coordinating staff member, and once completed, popped into the relevant entry box situated outside the Library. The Roleystone Bendigo Bank has generously donated a prize for a lucky K-6 and 7-10 student. These will be drawn at the next student assembly early next term. The Theme of the Expo Evening was “Giving back to the Community”, with any money raised being donated to assisting the establishment of the Roleystone Youth Shed, which is led by Community Youth workers Joyce Arnott and Stuart Hight. To help generate more money, Mr Thatcher jumped on his spin bike and ‘rode’ for two hours. The Action Station was very popular, with many students and some parents trying to match his endurance. Riders will have their name published in next term’s Newsletter. Thank you for your kind donations and support of the Youth Shed and Mr Thatcher. The Library was a hive of activity on the night, with the Book Fair inside drawing everyone in. Most of our families took advantage of the wonderful books on offer to buy, with all purchases benefiting the College. More than $3,000 was raised! It was a fantastic night, with hundreds of families indulging in a yummy sausage sizzle dinner. Our wonderful P&C and staff volunteers were extremely busy cooking, serving and cleaning up. Thank you for all your hard work and cheery smiles at the canteen servery! During the school day, the students were allowed to wear free dress with a gold coin donation, resulting in a collection of more than $790, a huge amount to kick off our donation to the Youth Shed. The Expo Evening was a great way to finish Term 1, and we look forward to starting Term 2 on Tuesday 29 April.
