Regarding the Peet Road intersection - I simply do not understand the logic behind the work carried out on the cycle crossing provided for cyclists. Due to these new developments, we cyclists now have to stop and give way to traffic, which, by rights, should be giving way to us! As a local, and as a cyclist, I believe this is sending the wrong message to motorists. We have as much of a right to be on the roads, and never in my 25 years on the roads (here, or in the UK) have I ever seen anything like this before. Frankly, it is ridiculous! I am convinced that someone somewhere has come up with this idea simply because of a lack of something better to do, and because there was probably funding available to do it. I can see no other reason for what has been done here. It seems unfair to me that cyclists who have just slogged it up the hill should have to stop and detour off the road and then rejoin it. So now, when I stand my ground and stay on the road, some drivers are probably likely to get abusive and target me because I have not followed a sign that tells all cyclists to follow the new cycle feed lane. Cyclists get abused all the time; shouted at, sworn at and so on and so forth for absolutely no reason. The works on the Peet road intersection have effectively increased this level of abuse and achieved nothing more than a waste of money. Sorry to be so blunt, but this needed to pointed out, and something needs to be done about it. Jason Scott. Collateral Damage In your May/June edition of this year, you exhibited a set of photographs that showed the complete and utter destruction of the concrete bus shelter on Peet Road as a result of the car accident. From what I could see in the photographs, the car, truck or tank that crashed into it

must have also sustained major damage. However, that wasn’t the only damage that was done, and I think one could be excused if they didn’t notice the collateral damage that was just ten metres further on. A beautiful acacia (acacia elata) or cedar wattle, collapsed from the severe shock waves or earth vibrations that were caused by the collision. When I saw it the following morning, it had split down the middle with half on the ground and half still standing. Eventually the complete wattle had to come down. What a shame! I spoke to the owner of the tree, who said that white ants were a contributing factor to the removal of the remains of the tree. The cedar wattle is a beautiful tree, which we are fortunate enough to have some of in the area. There is a magnificent one in Taree Close, and another one on Peet Road. While I’m sure the driver certainly had a severe shock and price to pay, the collateral damage in my view was another tragedy. Yours faithfully, In the Year of Forests Benjamin Seabrook. Note of thanks The family of the late Brenda Bell of Robin Road, Roleystone who passed away in March this year, would like to sincerely thank the community of Roleystone who supported their Aunt Brenda over the past years. This help and support allowed Aunt Brenda to fulfil her dream to live in her home until her death. Special thanks for the support Aunt Brenda received from Dr Ojo, Rachel and the staff at the Roleystone Family Medical Centre, Mr White and the staff at the Roleystone Community Chemist, her neighbours and friends. Aunt Brenda loved living in Roleystone, its environment and community. Jeffrey W. Oates, Leeming.

After a long stream of lobbying, petitions and verbal requests, the youth of Roleystone and Karragullen will be pleased to hear their Cross Park skate park has received Council approval to be upgraded. The Council will be engaging professional skate park designers to consult with our youth to make sure that the final design meets with their expectations. The funds of $380,000 for the skate park come from public open space money that has become available to the urbanised area of Roleystone. In addition, there is a $50,000 political donation courtesy of Alannah MacTiernan’s pledge to the community during the last election, given specifically for this purpose. We are hopeful that the initial process of determining an appropriate design will not take to long to commence. We will ensure that the communication process Front Cover of The Valley with our youth for the design will be Reporter Issue #32 March/April 20 well publicised to ensure all those 07, Community Youth Event wanting input will have the opportunity held at the Roleystone to give it. Ska te Pa rk on Sunday 17th March 200 Cr. Pat Hart & Cr. Caroline Wielinga. 7.

LABOR BUILDING AUSTRALIA’S CLEAN ENERGY FUTURE The Gillard Labor Government is taking action to tackle climate change by putting a price on pollution and assisting business and households transition to a clean energy future. Labor Senator for Western Australia, Glenn Sterle, today discussed how jobs and households in the Federal Electorate of Canning will be supported as Australia undertakes this important economic reform. “I’m proud to be part of a government that is taking action to tackle climate change and build Australia’s clean energy future,” Senator Glenn Sterle. “The carbon price is not a tax on households - around 500 of the biggest polluters in Australia will be required to pay for their pollution under the carbon pricing mechanism.” “And every dollar raised will go to support jobs, households and to invest in clean energy and climate change programs.” “Nine out of 10 households will receive assistance through a combination of tax cuts, higher family payments and increases in pensions and benefits.” The comprehensive plan announced by the Gillard Labor Government to reduce pollution and secure a clean energy future includes: • putting a price on carbon pollution; • promoting innovation and investment in renewable energy; • encouraging energy efficiency; • supporting the storage of carbon in our landscape. “The Labor Government has a plan to cut

pollution and lay the foundation for the clean energy future that all Australians deserve,” Senator Glenn Sterle said. “As I go around my electorate and meet with local families and businesses, they are telling me that it is time to take action to tackle climate change. “As a Labor Government, we will make sure households are looked after with tax cuts, higher family payments and increases in pensions and benefits to help meet the costs passed through by some businesses. Senator Sterle said that more than 24600 pensioners in Canning would receive an extra $338 extra per year if they are single and up to $510 per year for couples combined, in their pension payments, while more than 1700 self funded retirees in Canning will receive an extra $338 per year in assistance for singles and up to $510 per year for couples combined. In addition, more than 12300 families in Canning will receive household assistance through their Family Assistance payments. “Compare this to Tony Abbott’s absurd plan to make every household in Canning pay $720, which he wants to just hand over as subsidies to the big polluters. “I will continue to work hard for the people of Canning as we set about tackling the environmental and economic challenges of competing in a low pollution world.” Further information about the Gillard Labor Government’s plan for a clean energy future is available at www.cleanenergyfuture.gov.au.

13 July 2011 Dear Maggie, Jo and Patrick, After our house had been on the market with another agent for over 12 months, we called Maggie Burke Real Estate. Maggie is full of ideas and the team always kept us up to date after home opens and viewings. We appreciate everything that was done in selling our house, and we are now looking forward to a new chapter in our lives. A big thank you to Maggie, Jo and Patrick for all their ideas and suggestions in getting our house sold !!!

Vicky and Clint Thompson


Before Megan Blakeley moved to Melbourne, she studied full-time at two different Perth schools for 3 years, giving her a Diploma in performing arts as a dance major. In January 2010, she made the big move to Melbourne, where she took the opportunity to attend Jason Coleman’s Ministry of Dance full-time dance course. Megan spent 14 months there, learning hiphop, contemporary and commercial jazz, acrobatics, tap, ballet, musical theatre, singing and acting. With the help of the connecting agency, Megan had many auditions which she did very well in. As a matter of fact, she was even offered the lead role for a children’s musical, an amazing job offer which she turned down because of her desire to return to Perth. Megan wanted to come back and give the performers of Perth a little taste of Melbourne, by sharing with them all she had learned. She also came back with a fierce ambition to start fulfilling her life dream of opening her own dance school. Now, Megan not only teaches at several high schools as a specialist dance teacher, but also performs for TSC Productions and is in a hiphop crew called Femme Fatale. In addition, she is currently running her own classes at Cecil Andrews Senior High School after school hours, as well as an adults hiphop fitness class in Roleystone. As of next term, Megan will be starting jazz and hiphop classes for children. For more information please contact her on 0400 093 325 or email her on meganblakeley2@gmail.com.

You’re all invited to participate in our fantastic Wine Tasting Evenings From 6pm to 8pm every Friday night in July, we will be doing in-house wine tastings, so come along and book dinner at The Grape Gallery. You can help us improve our wine list by giving us your valuable opinion on the wines you’ll try. Come check out those wines you’ve been curious about, but not yet tasted. Damian Hutton a winemaker from Milbrook Winery was at The Grape Gallery on Friday 8th July. Diners were able to sample from the Barking Owl range, one of Millbrooks award-winning wines. Other local wineries have also been invited to come along and showcase their range of wines on the consecutive nights. We are also organising a Wine Appreciation Night, where the focus will be on education about wine as opposed to winery label tastings. Naturally, you will be able to savour wine and food served by our marvelous Chef Paul while there. Bookings are essential for the presentation, so please do so at the first opportunity. We plan to do it in midAugust, so our customers who come to the winery tastings will already have some knowledge to apply to what they hear from the guest speaker. For further information or to make a booking call our restaurant manager Michaela on 9496 0088, or email: grapegallery@bigpond.com.

Storytimes with Dad at City of Armadale libraries The role of Dads and important adult males in children’s lives is vital, so the City of Armadale Library Service is presenting special Storytimes with Dad sessions. All fathers, grandfathers and special male role models and their children are encouraged to come along! At these FREE storytime sessions, there will be stories with a Dad theme, singing of rhymes and craft activities. There are three Storytime with Dad sessions: Kelmscott Library, Saturday 23 July from 10.30am to 11am, Seville Grove Library, Saturday 6 August from 10.30am to 11am and Armadale Library, Thursday 18 August from 6.30pm to 7pm. The City’s Storytimes with Dad are being held to coincide with the Thanks Dad PhotoVoice Competition, for which Armadale Mayor Linton Reynolds is the local Ambassador in 2011. Competition displays with entry forms can be found in City of Armadale Libraries during the

July School Holidays. Share your special moment with us by bringing in your photo and completing an entry form by 27 August. The City of Armadale will be printing a local Early Years 2012 calendar featuring some of the photographic entries. Cr Reynolds urged local dads and granddads to join in the storytime sessions. “Making time to spend with your children and grand children should be a priority,” he said. “Kids benefit in many ways from having male role models – they learn practical skills and form wonderful bonds that can be lifelong. “It’s great to see the City’s libraries supporting such an important relationship through the Storytimes with Dad sessions.” Bookings are essential. Contact Kelmscott Library on 9399 0810, Seville Grove Library on 9399 0800 or Armadale Library on 9399 0125.


Armadale’s one and only coffee roaster, Bean to Heaven, is taking the humble cup of coffee to a new level at their roastery and café in Pioneer Village, which opened just last month. Owners Simon and Siobhan Tucci roast a selection of specialty coffee beans on the premises, which can be sampled by the customers at the café. They offer a wide selection of beans to take home, as well as two varieties to choose from by the cup - their Village Blend or the single origin of the day. They’ve been greatly encouraged by the local residents’ responses to having a specialty coffee roaster on their doorstep. “There are some customers who know all about specialty coffee and are pleased to finally have somewhere close by that can give them that variety and quality. Other customers hadn’t really ever thought about the origins of their coffee or how it is roasted, they’ve just come in for their daily caffeine fix, so they’re enjoying learning about it. We’ve got a graphic on the wall explaining the bean’s journey, which has been getting a lot of attention”, Mr Tucci said. The term “specialty coffee” does not have a clear definition, but according to Mr

Tucci, in order for coffee to be considered “specialty”, a certain degree of attention and passion must go into its journey from crop to cup. “It starts with Arabica beans that are picked when ripe, and then processed immediately in a particular way. The best of the beans are then roasted to an exact profile in a drum roaster by someone that has the skill to change the roast time and heat for different beans and brewing methods. Getting the beans into the hands of the brewer as soon as possible, with minimal exposure to air and light, so they stay fresh, is absolutely key. It’s a complicated process, not unlike winemaking. Even though coffee is drunk in huge quantities in Australia, most of us would never have given much thought to the process. It’s such a big part of why there’s such a difference in the quality of coffee we drink from place to place. Though Mr Tucci is quick to point out that the skill of the barista also strongly influences the resulting cup, many people at home and even cafes/restaurants are using stale beans that produce bland or bitter coffee. Fresh beans are definitely worth seeking out for the result they deliver, and the variety available means you can travel around the world in a simple cup of coffee. For supply of freshly roasted coffee beans, or some top tips on making the perfect cup, drop in to Bean to Heaven or Above two photographs courtesy visit www.beantoheaven. com.au. of Debbie Collins.

Property Values Trend lines are starting to show a leveling out of property prices across the metro area for both residential houses and land. Gavin Hegney from Hegney Property Valuers – one of Perth’s leading property market forecasters recently stated that we should see a stable property market (no further decline in property values) within 12 months with steady increases in property values from mid 2012 through the following 3 - 5 years to 2015-2017 (subject to no major external economic shocks or marked increase of interest rates). Interest Rates The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) is still talking a constrictive monetary policy e.g. increasing interest rates to control inflation. To the RBA’s surprise, inflation has recently eased off a little and with the retail sector struggling at the moment (think back to the recent David Jones and Myer profit results that were below expectations due to decline of sales) we may see interest rates on hold for an extended period of time.

THINKING AHEAD TO THE CANNING RIVER SUMMER FLOW

9497 1596

While it is really great to have an increase in the number of wet days, and to see and hear the river flowing strongly, I have real concerns about the coming summer flow. The dam level is still below what it was at this time last year, and that puts the situation at this time to extreme. As you would all be aware, the Canning River is 100% dammed, just like Churchmans Brook and the Wungong. The upper section of the Canning River has had scientific evaluations carried out on it and formal “Environmental Water Requirements” been established to govern the water releases. The first release site is in Araluen Botanic Park, and the last one is under the Gosnells Bridge. Last year the amount released was 50% less than identified due to the dam

levels, and with a few increases in some sites, the river flow was environmentally sustained. The Swan River Trust and Department of Water have recently been doing site inspections along this upper section of the Canning, checking out obstructions in the river, as well as legal and illegal water extractions from the river. I believe this could be a sign that we may have even less water released this coming summer. There are still a reasonable number of properties and riparian users who are licensed to extract water. Under the Rights in Irrigation Act, the riparian users may be required to cease extraction if the situation becomes critical. At the moment they are under the same restrictions for water usage as scheme water users. Cr. Pat Hart.

Internationally acclaimed Canadian film director Lee Chambers is now here in Perth, and has brought his award-winning Make It Short Film Project along with him. Sponsored by Canada’s Ontario Arts Council, this informative workshop series, which is heading into its 6th year, plays a unique role in educating remote communities on the art of film production. Following a successful 2 hour presentation to specialist film and television students at Roleystone District High School on June 23rd, an open seminar for the community has been scheduled for July 28th at 7:30pm. Lee’s entertaining and inspiring lecture series looks at the art and business side of filmmaking through a collection of humorous war stories about life on movie sets. “The workshop provided students with an opportunity to take their knowledge of filmmaking to a much higher level,” claims Film and Television Coordinator Andrew Pheasant. “This means our students, who are working on a number of important community based projects, are now much better equipped to produce films at a professional degree.” Chambers’ last film, ‘When Life Gives You Lemons’ has been selected by over 40 film festivals around the globe and recently earned him a Directors’ Guild of Canada Ontario nomination for Best Director. To learn more about the event, you can contact Andrew Pheasant at Roleystone District High School on 9397 7222, or on his email andrew. pheasant@det.wa.edu.au, www.roleystonedhs.det.wa.edu.au or log onto www.misfilmproject.com.

RDHS Bush Ranger Cadets Camp In conjunction with the Department of Environment and Conservation, the Roleystone District High School Bush Ranger Cadets have recently undertaken a valuable experience down south at the Perup Forest Environmental Centre in Manjimup. The Perup forest consists of 52,000 hectares of jarrah forest and wandoo woodland, and is home to 6 rare Australian mammals. During the night, the chuditch, wotlie, tammar wallaby, ringtail possum and southern brown bandicoot are most active, showing how the Perup forest is an ideal place for observing nocturnal wildlife.

The Bush Ranger Cadet students were involved in team work activities including nest monitoring, woylie monitoring and other environmental awareness programs. The four day camp was organised and coordinated by unit leaders Mr Holliday, Miss Curtis and Mr Huisman. The students came prepared for the colder weather down south, so nothing could dampen the enthusiasm of the students. Photographs courtesy of Travis Newland.

Rod Freckelton, a Roleystoner who has lived in the hills since 1978, has been a very busy man of late. Pictured above (top) Crossing the Pentecost River, Alongside his (bottom) The triumphant Chalkies at the end of the 4 mates Mike Challenge, sporting their Breast Cancer bandanas. Casley, Bryan Ferrara, Nick Lucarelli and John Puglisi, Rod Freckelton recently conquered the Gibb River Road Mountain Bike Challenge. The team of 5 men, made up of retired or working teachers, call themselves “The Chugging Chalkies”, most of whom have enjoyed years of fishing, camping and other outback exploits together. Despite it being their first go at the mammoth challenge, the amateur riders finished somewhere around 20th place out of a possible 72 teams. Organised annually by the Western Australian Police Legacy Inc, “The Gibb” is a 770km bike trek across Australia’s stunning Kimberley region, starting in Derby and ending in El Questro, one of this country’s most beautiful and unspoiled frontiers. From the 8th to the 12th of May, Rod, his team, and just under 250 other bike riders endured early morning starts, bouts of rain, hard winds and impassable river crossings that forced them to make a few slight detours along the way. Rod recalls that the wonderful scenery really made up for it, and described it as “The best I’ve ever seen it”. The striking views of the Pentecost River with the Cockburn Ranges in the backdrop were merely a fraction of what Rod experienced on the road to the finish line, but are definitely worth seeing. As part of the challenge, Rod and the rest of the “Chalkies” raised an astounding $12,000 to be donated to the Policy Legacy, which supports the families of deceased police officers, and to a Breast Cancer organisation, which gives help and support to sufferers of the disease. Since many of Rod’s team members have wives or mothers who have had brushes with breast cancer, this seemed to be a fitting cause to fundraise for. Rod says the generosity shown by friends, family and even Gibb Challenge participants caught in an outback traffic jam at the Pentecost River.


complete strangers left him absolutely “gobsmacked”. Rod described the sense of achievement and camaraderie amongst the bike riders as the highlight of the journey, and says that he and his team intend to sign up for the challenge again next year. The Valley Reporter congratulates Rod and the rest of the Chalkies for their efforts, and wishes them all the best of luck in the future. Well done! Elise Kelly.

Roleystone Bowls News from the Greens With the winter weather well and truly upon us, action on the bowling greens has only been possible when the rain has held off. Even though conditions have been cold, there have been a healthy number of bowlers turning out on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons, enjoying their sport and keeping their skills up in preparation for the coming season. Of course there is always the opportunity to take part

in winter competitions at those clubs which have synthetic greens that are not affected by the weather as much as our grass facilities are. We have two teams of four bowlers each competing in the Forrestfield Open Event, and we wish them all the best for a successful weekend. Apart from the bowls, work continues on the refurbishment of one of our greens with regular working bees coordinated

by Phil Deas being held over most weekends. I’m told that the highlight is the morning tea break with delicious cakes provided by our Ladies’ Captain, Shirley Thomas. I’m also reliably informed that the next time the boys make their tea and coffee, they’ll check the ‘sugar’ container before making their cups to avoid any mix up with the salt! Finally, we have our Quiz Night on Saturday 23rd July followed by the

The House of Representatives Committee on Social Policy and Legal Affairs is holding an inquiry into the response of the insurance industry to extreme weather events. Canning MHR Don Randall is encouraging people that were affected by the Kelmscott Roleystone and Lake Clifton bushfires to write a submission or conduct the online survey. Mr Randall said promoting the inquiry was timely as FESA’s report on the Lake Clifton, Red Hill and Roleystone Fires has recently been released. “The inquiry will investigate how insurance companies managed the processing of large numbers of claims in a timely fashion, the contracting of third party experts, and the resolving of disputes – both internally and externally,” he said. “Information gathering is a key way to document findings and provides a basis for recommended future actions. “The FESA report provides important information, the State Government’s Perth Hills Bushfires review will provide important information, and this insurance inquiry is another layer of how we can

gain knowledge on ways to better manage disasters and the issues surrounding those events, such as insurances practices. “I had constituents come to me with questions about insurance practices following the bushfires, so the inquiry is an appropriate way for people to have a say.” Both individuals and business policy holders can make a written submission to the inquiry or complete the anonymous online survey. The survey responses will count as a submission to the inquiry. The terms of reference for the inquiry include the detailed review of claims processing arrangements, the conduct of external dispute resolution processes and any other matters arising from 2010/2011 extreme weather events that would impact the claims process. To complete the survey visit www. aph.gov.au/insurance.

Blame has appeared at the Toronto Film Festival, Cannes and the Melbourne International Film Festival. The Hollywood Reporter wrote rightly that it’s a ‘well-crafted thriller.’

McAuliffe’s Wrought Iron Metal Art

Roleystone Lauded at Blame Premiere

Roleystone District High School Deputy Principal and Film & Television Specialising in Individual Designs Coordinator, Andrew For all your Wrought Iron requirements Pheasant, was recently • GATES • FENCES • BALUSTRADES invited to the West • SECURITY GRILLES • FURNITURE Australian Premiere of the • GENERAL FABRICATION & WELDING feature film “Blame”.

Mr Pheasant said that the writer and director of the film, Michael Henry, Jenny Whitney (A.M.A.N.F.) paid special tribute to the Dream Consultant Roleystone Community. Mobile: 0417 945 988 “Michael told the Phone/Fax: (08) 9496 1348 audience, which was a pillowtalk.zzz@bigpond.com who’s who of the WA Film Industry, that Roleystone offered him a superb location as a film maker. He thanked the Roleystone people for their hospitality and generosity.” “Blame” centres on a group of young vigilantes who seek revenge for a sexual betrayal, and in doing so, fall far from grace. When the truth is out, they find themselves on the dark side of justice. Mr Pheasant said that the film, a thriller, held the audience in suspense for the entire 90 minutes. “I was very impressed with how well the story and the actors maintained the tension from the Email: finelinesigns@bigpond.com start to finish.

story. He also said that the bush added a haunting quality to the film. The film stars Damian de Montemas, Sophie Lowe, Kestie Morassi, Simon Stone, Mark Leonard Winter and Ashley Zukerman. Roleystone District High School students Zan Bosman, Danyon Burge, Jake Fowler, Shae Larratt and Jordan Leske all earned credits in the film for their roles as student extras. The students were on set for over three hours for the shooting of scene one. Mr Pheasant, who is also the CEO of the Armadale Independent Film Festival, said that Blame will be shown on the opening night of the 2011 festival. “We are very proud that we have secured the rights to screen this film as part of our Festival opening on the evening of December 1. It will be screened at the Grand Cinema in Armadale and will feature a Q & A session with some members of the crew.”


Excerpts from Bushfire Prevention and Survival by Rob Forster.

Do we stay or go? Evacuation or protect in place handbrake firmly. Close all outside vents and windows to the vehicle. Select recycle air on the airconditioner and leave engine running. All occupants lie on the floor of the vehicle and place woollen blankets over themselves. Use the mobile phone to contact Emergency Services on 000 and inform them of your situation and exact location. Be prepared to elaborate to the Emergency Services Operators if required. Speak slowly and clearly, an emotional yelling outburst on the telephone will require the message to be spoken again, this will waste precious time. Take a few deep breaths, calm yourself, and think about what needs to be said and then say it. After the fire has passed exit the vehicle, preferably on the passenger side away from the road. Look for and avoid any downed powerlines. If it is safe to do so have all occupants exit the vehicle. Ensure children in particular do not touch hot objects. Do a systematic check of the vehicle and extinguish any hotspots. Check under the vehicle for embers or hotspots. Do not drive the vehicle until a detailed inspection of its condition has been carried out. If you have previously contacted Emergency Services and decide to continue on your original journey after checking the vehicle for serviceability, contact 000 and inform them that you are safe.

We featured an article on the making of “Blame” way back in the February/March issue of 2010, when The Valley Reporter was exclusively invited onto the set by producer Ryan Hodgson. We were invited to venture around the premises in which the majority of the film was shot, watching silently as directors, producers and actors filmed take after take for the morning in the familiar building. The film takes place in a secluded country house on the outskirts of the bush, where a piano teacher leads a strangely isolated life. Without warning or provocation, 5 immaculately dressed and masked intruders attack him, leaving him for dead. A faked suicide note provides the only explanation to the perfect crime. However, when the group’s best-laid but ill-conceived plans go awry, the already tense proceedings escalate with ferocious intensity. “Blame” is a mysterious and thrilling rollercoaster ride of a movie, cast with the crème de la crème of young Australian actors. Director Michael Henry utilises this fine talent pool to great effect, showing remarkable restraint and discipline in creating this tense, taut and devastating film. When it finally came to a cinema in Perth, we had to go and watch it for ourselves. At the Luna in Leederville, Jason and I watched “Blame” unfold before us, the memories of the day on set in 2010 still vivid. The film included scenery of the valley, the Canning Dam, and the picturesque Roley Pools. Yes, our little secret is now on the big screen for everyone to see! There were even a few several accidental shots of a WJ & KS Auto’s bumper sticker on the back of an old Landrover. This edge-of-your-seat thriller is classified MA15+ and runs for approximately 89 minutes. With 8 official selections from the Melbourne, Toronto, Chicago, CinefestOz, Victoria, India, Buenos Aires and The CPH Pix Film Festivals, “Blame” has proved itself to be a quality made film, which we can all proudly say was filmed in Roleystone. We thoroughly enjoyed it, and we suggest you take the time to see it in a cinema near you.

Driving in an Incident area Many families have been killed in an attempt to escape an area that has been under threat of bushfire. Firefighters and other innocent lives have been lost as a result of accidents involving vehicles on roads in incident areas. In the event of an incident or evacuation adrenalin levels will be elevated. People that are driving will be preoccupied with their own concerns. Couple all these factors together and serious accidents will occur. It is imperative that all road rules and any specific direction by emergency services personnel are strictly followed. Drive to the conditions at the time. Be courteous to other drivers. If smoke conditions are heavy this will mean that the speed of the vehicle will have to be significantly reduced. Low beam or fog lights should be turned on. Listen to the vehicle radio for fire condition updates. Parking vehicle if road under threat. If there is a need to park the car for whatever reason, try to do this in a specifically designed area such as a truck bay. If the truck bay option is not available do not pull off too far on the road verge particularly in sandy or soft ground as the car may bog. The vehicle should be far enough of the road as to not create a hazard for any other traffic. Choose an area that is free of vegetation. If the road and vehicle are overcome by fire; Do not obstruct the roadway. Turn on hazard lights. Leave engine running. Place vehicle in neutral. Apply


Roleystone Community Youth Workers are facilitating “How to Drug Proof Your Kids” sessions at the Roleystone Neighbourhood Family Centre, starting Tuesday 9 August 7-9pm Minister Mr Howard, and received considerable funding from the Department for Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs.

series of interview topics on “Today Tonight” and contributes articles to 47 magazines throughout the world. Barry’s first ARBA meeting covered topics relating to marketing, while the second was more of an interactive workshop for its members. Throughout the workshop he spoke of multi-channel marketing, competition from online shopping, extended trading hours, creating awareness and recognition, the six dimensions of merchandising, attitude of staff and that motivation must come from within. At the end of the workshop there was an opportunity for some question and answer time, with specific focus on certain industries. Everyone was able to take away something from the workshop for them to think about. I know that in today’s competitive market, small local businesses need all the help that they can get, and Barry Urquhart certainly delivered. Thank you ARBA!

Next year, the oval will no longer be school ground, and while a move up to the Roleystone Community College is plausible, the loss of this central location could be significantly detrimental.

Kalamunda District Bridge Club News July 2011 With the growth of the popular card game “Social Bridge”, the Kalamunda District Bridge Club recently launched a new marketing campaign to attract new members from amongst those already playing, and those wishing to learn. Featuring a series of four posters and culminating in a leaflet drop in conjunction with the Merchant Coffee House (with a two for one coffee offer) it is expected to generate substantial numbers for the new lessons which start in October. Club President, Andy Leal, said that now that the club is running Social Bridge sessions, there appears to be more people wanting to find out about it. After all, there aren’t many places where you can enjoy an afternoon or evening of entertainment with refreshments for just $5. The lessons have been specially

prepared for both beginners and for those with some prior knowledge who seek to improve their skills. The course materials, which now contain internet references, are completely free, owing to the generosity of a number of local sponsors. After the lessons, the learners can join one of the club’s Social sessions to play Bridge with hands specially selected for them. To help them at these sessions, we have experienced club members in attendance, acting as mentors. Lessons start October 3rd at 7pm. Anyone who is interested, please contact Anita Davis on 9397 9017.

Hundreds of cheerleaders and dancers from all around the world recently converged on the Gold Coast for the Aussie Gold International Cheer and Dance Championships. They were held on July 8th & 9th, making a weekend of funfilled competition across Cheer, HipHop, Jazz, Pom and Contemporary/Lyrical divisions. Cheerleading is one of Australia’s fastest growing sports, it combines gymnastics, dance and acrobatics into a fastpaced, spectacular routine, which the “F2C Swans” did spectacularly in. They really did us proud with these amazing results, Cheer - Level 2 Jnr; 1st - “F2C Swans”. Group Stunt - Level 2 Jnr All Girl / Coed; 1st - “F2C Swanettes” and 3rd - “F2C Swanees”. With the “F2C Swans” success, they are now eager to cheer and dance like never before! As part of their award the “F2C Swans” have received an invitation to compete at the Aloha Spirit Championships in Hawaii, for April next year. These events require a lot of fundraising, help and support along the way, so to inquire about sponsorship opportunities, contact Jakky Bolt from Fit 2 Cheer 0425 422 494 or by email: jakky@fit2cheer. com.au. The Valley Reporter congratulates the “F2C Swans” on their efforts, and wishes them all the best of luck in the future. Well done!

Dear Community Member, The Roleystone Community Alive Group has dedicated itself to improving the lives of local members through a combination of collective emotional support and financial donations to specific important community initiatives. The recent achievements of the group have positively affected both individuals and the public as a whole. Gatekeeper Training On the 18th and 25th of June, the Roleystone Community Alive Group (in partnership with Centrecare) held two “Gatekeeper” Training sessions at the Roleystone Family Centre Board Room on Wygonda Road. A “Gatekeeper” refers to a worker and/or community member who is able to identify and support people at risk of suicide. The Gatekeeper Training works on the premise that by developing a strong relationship with a person who is “at risk” and connecting them with appropriate support, their sense of hopelessness and loneliness is lessened. By implementing effective intervention, the likelihood of suicide is significantly reduced. One Life Gatekeeper Training is a comprehensive and modern approach to reduce suicidal behaviour, by promoting family, school and workplace environments as avenues of social support. Studies reveal that approximately eight out of ten people who take their own lives give definite warning signs of their suicidal intentions. This statistic makes it clear that if more people are trained to be alert to these signs, and are given the skills needed to take appropriate action, the rate of successful suicides should be much less. One Life Gatekeeper Training is a 2 day workshop designed to provide participants with a wide range of skills and knowledge that will improve their ability and give them greater confidence to work with suicidal people and the professionals who they may have to make referrals to. The workshop modules covered the following: extent of the problem, mental disorders, recognising warning signs, linking and raising the issue, intervention guidelines, intervention with lowmoderate high risk, understanding the problem, self-harm behaviour, understanding needs, framework for risk assessment, intervention with high risk and post-intervention. We are already looking at organising another round of training sessions for later in the year. Those

community members who attended and participated in the June sessions should be proud to be partaking in such a strong cause. Giving up your time to learn these life-saving or lifechanging skills will be a choice you won’t ever regret. Your community thanks you. Rock & Water Program Funding Cath Ashton, the network coordinator of the One Life Suicide Prevention Strategy at Centrecare has recently confirmed the requested $2000 funding for the Rock & Water Program at Roleystone District High School. Now that the funding has been approved, it will go towards valued training for the high risk age group in the community. This is the second time we have managed to pull funds for more of our teachers to be trained. The financial input from WesTrac as part of its Gold Standard Pledge in committing funding towards suicide prevention initiatives is greatly valued by the Roleystone Community Alive Group. ECU Surveys ECU students have been out to Roleystone on a number of occasions, doing group surveys at the Senior Football Club, the Roleystone Neighbourhood Family Centre, and at the homes of families who wanted to participate. There has also been a major letterbox drop survey orchestrated. Mr Peter Thatcher has agreed to invite the ECU research team to RDHS as part of the community surveys. Details of these arrangements will be confirmed next term. Dr Pam Henry, research director of the Sellenger Institute will liaise with Mr Thatcher in organising the surveys with pupils. Ethics has been approved by ECU for any research with people in communities. We all look forward to hearing back from Mr Thatcher and ECU regarding the ongoing prevention of suicide in our community. Celebrity Visit The Junior and Senior Football Clubs were each treated to a visit by Paul Hasleby (plus some of his special guests), who spoke to the groups about the importance of being resilient, knowing who your real mates are, and how to help a mate in trouble. Sincerely, Evie Molson Community Coordinator Roleystone Community Alive Group Mobile: 0418 956 519 E: evie.molson@hotmail.com.

We are currently looking for tutors to offer their services for only a couple of hours during the week or on Saturday mornings. If you have an interesting hobby or skill that you can share with others, please put your name forward.

On Saturday 2nd July, Good Shepherd Catholic Primary School held its annual Busy Bee. In a matter of hours, about fifty parents, students and teachers worked around the outdoor classroom and animals to beautify the surroundings, producing something truly astounding. A fruit orchard was planted, mulching around the new outdoor classroom and creek bed was completed, the Holy Hen House was given a makeover, and the green house was completely cleaned out. In addition, paving was laid out leading to the animal enclosures, the goat enclosure had new trees planted, a cairn for goats to eat off was installed, and to top it off, a lot of rubbish was removed from around the existing site. The morning concluded with a sausage sizzle and some light refreshments.


AUSSIE KIDS DON’T CLIMB TREES ANYMORE Experts urge children to get outdoors as new research uncovers a massive decline in outdoor play across the generations

Most Aussie kids don’t climb trees anymore, according to new research from Planet Ark. Once a symbol of an idyllic childhood, this natureloving pastime is so significantly on the decline that only 19% of Australian children enjoy a clamber in their local tree. Our children’s love affair with the great outdoors is waning so rapidly that 10% of kids today play outside just once a week and only 35% of children play outside everyday compared to 72% of kids a generation ago. Experts are urging Australian parents to help get our kids back outdoors to ensure the social, emotional and physical development of current and future generations. The findings and report released today are part of an independent study commissioned by Planet Ark and sponsored by Toyota, titled Climbing Trees – Getting Aussie Kids Back Outdoors, to raise awareness of National Tree Day on Sunday 31 July, Australia’s biggest tree planting and nature based event. The landscape of childhood has changed so significantly in just one generation that 73% of Aussie parents agreed that they played outside more often than indoors compared to only 13% of their children. The choice of outdoor activities

between generations has also changed with activities like jump rope, hopscotch and street games down from 66% to 29%, exploring nature down from 65% to 28%, and only 19% of children climbing trees today compared to 64% of children a generation ago. Furthermore, 73% of people stated that they played on their street as kids but only 24% of their children do the same. The barriers to outside play include crime and safety concerns with 87% of respondents saying they were worried about letting kids play games on the street like they once used to and one in four parents saying they simply don’t have enough time to play outdoors with their kids anymore. However, the research indicated that Australians overwhelmingly agreed on the benefits of outdoor play for the positive development of our next generation of kids, with 92% saying it allowed children to use their imaginations, 93% agreeing that it helped develop physical and motor skills, and 90% saying it provided a positive outlet for reducing stress. Professor Anita Bundy, an internationally renowned academic in the area of children’s occupational therapy and assessment from The University of Sydney is leading the charge to address the decrease in children’s play outdoors. Professor Bundy’s current research in this area focuses on the benefits for children of providing opportunities for unstructured play in schools to increase children’s activity levels and playfulness. She hopes the work will revolutionise school playgrounds, leading to the introduction of more natural play spaces and unstructured equipment that stimulate more creative outdoor play. “Our current research stems from the worry that children’s emotional wellbeing, creativity and social skills are impaired by the decrease in outdoor play. While parents understandably prioritise safety, what they seem to forget is that playing outdoors - especially with friends-- contributes to experiences and skills that promote safety ”, said Professor Bundy. Make this year’s National Tree Day the beginning of the push to get Aussie kids back outdoors to make - EVERY DAY Tree Day!”


Run Fundrais n u F er RPS

Friday June 24th saw the Roleystone Primary School students participate in over an hour of Fun Run activities that tested their strength, endurance and sense of fun. After weeks of fundraising, students from Pre-Primary to Year 5 managed to accumulate a total of $5876 to go towards the Year 5 Camp and Early Childhood equipment. A big thank you must go to all the students and families who collected money for the fundraising event, as well as to all the Roleystone Primary School staff who took on the extra responsibilities that come with the Fun Run. The day was a great success and we look forward to having an even bigger event in 2012 at Roleystone Community College.

Aboriginal Health Conference a Resounding Success

Rural Health West’s annual Aboriginal Health Conference was a resounding success, with over 170 health professionals attending the two day conference, which provided Held in Perth 2-3 July access to clinical research, professional development and projects focusing on improving Aboriginal health. Keynote speakers included Mr Mick Gooda, the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Justice Commissioner, who discussed his aims and goals for his term as Commissioner and discussed relevant information pertaining to the Human Rights Conventions. “He provided a great insight to the work that needs to be done,” stated Dr Akpo, from the Carnarvon Aboriginal Medical Service. Mr John Moriarty AM was also a featured speaker, who provided an insight into tribal interactions within Aboriginal communities through storytelling of his personal experience. “An excellent conference once again,” Dr. Balzarelli commented, “I particularly enjoyed the Aboriginal speakers and involvement.” The conference also included concurrent sessions which provided delegates with the opportunity to hear from a variety of presenters across a wide range of topics. Presentations were provided by the Sunshine Coast Division of General Practice on their model of Indigenous and This sporting group is proudly supported by The Valley Reporter

The conference highlighted for many GPs and health professionals that Aboriginal health improvements relied on a variety of components, such as education and social factors, and organisations were working in these areas, together, to bring about change. “Overall it was a great conference, that allowed health professionals working in the areas of Aboriginal health to network, and learn from each other,” Belinda Bailey, CEO for Rural Health West said. “It was encouraging to see so many people from different areas coming together to share and learn from each other, and work towards the common goal of closing the life expectancy gap for Indigenous people.”
