Editorial

YOUR Region. YOUR Magazine. YOUR Valley Reporter. Fiona Newland – EDITOR/PUBLISHER This month’s issue has a particular focus on the great work people are accomplishing within our community, either academically or in volunteer roles. These wonderful achievements don’t just happen, but because of people like them, we are building a greater community. Congratulations to you all! One particular man is making a huge difference to a lot of lives with the last tool you’d expect to use for charity - a lawnmower! Read about his Rotary Ride for A Reason story on page 23. A lovely gesture has been made by local resident Erin McKenzie and a few other photographers, who want to help those who lost their homes in the Kelmscott/ Roleystone bushfires by filling their lost family photo albums again. They are kindly offering a photo session at NO COST. Sessions are limited, so if you know someone, make sure you nominate them soon! Erin’s contact details can be found on page 6.

Funky fashion from Peachy the ReStyle caravan, original music and an interactive art space are just some of the major attractions confirmed for Armadale’s exciting Evolution@Jull Street festival on Sunday April 22nd. The coordinators of the festival are aiming for it to be WA’s biggest and most spectacular National Youth Week celebration, so make sure you mark the date down in your calendars to be a part of it all. Within this issue of The Valley Reporter, there are two local job positions on offer. The Roleystone Junior Football Club is currently calling for expressions of interest to fill their Canteen Manager position for the up and coming football season, and Darling Range Electrical are offering an exciting opportunity for an Electrical Trades Person. If you think you’re the right person for either of these jobs, then don’t hesitate to contact the respective employer. See pages 6 and 14 for full details.

Deadline

If you want or need to get your children into a sport, The Valley Reporter has several Club’s promoting their registration dates and all their full contacts details. See inside for it all! There are several businesses new and old that we’d like to welcome, so please show your support by shopping smart and shopping local. These businesses are Roleystone Firewood, JK Legal, A Touch of Class by Tamukami, artist Susan Angwin, Habitat WA, Earthbound Organics and Care West Liquid Waste Recycling. Lastly, a big thank you must go out to the many people who have helped make Araluen Botanic Park a recognised International Garden of Excellence. With Araluen right on your doorstep, make sure you find the time to visit the Park sometime and see the camellias at their very best for yourself.

Roleystone Neighbourhood Family Centre Incorporated It was good to read about the upcoming partnership between the Roleystone Community College and the Mulberry Tree Out of School Hours Care, and also good to hear that the students will benefit from the income that will be generated. For the Roleystone Neighbourhood Family Centre however, the outcome is not so positive. After 20 years of providing the community with the facilities for an OSHC program, this aspect of our involvement in providing such services will cease. For the Roleystone Neighbourhood Family Centre, which is a community organisation, this means a significant loss of funding, as well as changes to our staffing and programs we are able to provide to the community. As a volunteer management committee, we are embracing this challenge and looking for new ways to source funds and thus allow us to continue to provide the community with programs and facilities that are currently regarded by the family centre organisation as the gold standard in WA. If any community members have ideas on how we can navigate this challenge we would welcome the input. We are located at 19 Wygonda Road in Roleystone, and you can contact us by calling us on 9496 1115, faxing us on 9496 1114, emailling us at manager@ roleyfamilycentre.com.au, or going to our website www.roleyfamilycentre.com.au, where you can also see more information about us and our services.

It has now been 12 months since the devastating fires, and I would like to say thank you to The Valley Reporter for being of assistance in the process of rebuilding our property. Through the ads and business directory, we have been able to locate and use many local businesses for things such as fencing, gardening, building, pool equipment, air conditioning, painting and carpets etc. Local trades people turned up on time, quoted on time and were also genuinely interested in doing the work. We were not always able to find exactly what we needed, but someone in the advertisements could always suggest someone that could help. We live on Buckingham Road, and out of 4 local free community newspapers The Valley Reporter is the only publication we receive. Whilst currently living in Kelmscott, we still use many services in the Roleystone area, and I try to do as much shopping as I can to support local business. I am sure the businesses in Roleystone appreciate people coming up the hill to do business or to support people in the area.

C E N T R E

Thank you once again to The Valley Reporter and local tradies in Roleystone for your continued excellence. Name and address supplied.

Is there anyone out there who knows anything about wasps? I have a wasp nest outside my kitchen window that I assumed was made by the usual small black and yellow wasps we see around. Just recently I noticed a large wasp, light orange all over, that appeared to be trying to get into the nest. I got the impression it was a ‘rogue wasp’ endeavouring to get to the young inside, which it did not succeed in doing, since the entrance hole to the nest was too small for it. I’ve never seen a wasp this size or colour before. Any knowledgeable advisors? Yours sincerely, Shirley Dercksen, Roleystone.

A year on from the Kelmscott/ Roleystone bush fires, I want to let the families who lost their homes know that you are not forgotten. I too, was evacuated on that day and could have lost my home, but I was one of the lucky ones. I thought about all the things I would have missed the most and family photos were on the top of my list. I remember feeling truly helpless at the time, wishing I could do more to help the families who were not as fortunate as mine, and now I can! I want to help you fill those family photo albums again. A few photographers and I have decided to chip in and help the families who have lost their homes. We are offering you a photo session, paired with a disk of photos at NO COST. If you lost your home in the fires or have friends or family members who have, please contact me Custom timber doors and windows P: (08) 9397 9838 M: 0413 148 460 E: enquiries@habitatwatimber.com.au W: habitatwatimber.com.au

Please give details such as family names and a contact number or email. All that we ask is that nominations and applications be genuine, since we don’t want families to miss out because of someone being untruthful. I am sure everyone understands.

Canning MHR Don Randall and Darling Range MLA Tony Simpson recently paid an unexpected visit to local, unsung, bushfires hero, Leonida Martin. Mr Randall said Ms Martin was remembered because she offered coffee and tea from her Kelmscott home to bushfire evacuees in February last year. Mr Randall and Mr Simpson observed Ms Martin on the night of the fires and were humbled by the way her simple actions provided comfort to those who had fled their homes. Mr Randall presented a community service award to Ms Martin during the visit. The last line of the certificate read: “A year on, you are not forgotten.”

Canning MHR Don Randall and Darling Range MLA Tony Simpson share a cuppa with unsung hero, Leonida Martin.

“Between Ms Martin and Glenn Woods and Rob Jonas-Green from the IGA at Kelmscott Plaza, evacuees were able to get a hot drink, water and a sausage sizzle - all thanks to their generosity and kindness. The IGA also provided fruit for evacuees,” Mr Randall said. He said Ms Martin was one of many bushfires heroes in addition to other local residents, fire‐ fighters, police, SES workers, ambulance officers and aid organisations such as the Salvos and Red Cross. “I still have constituents contact me with issues stemming from the fires, including insurance problems and concerns about correct burn-offs,” Mr Randall said. “Houses may be re-built, and trees may have grown back, but the event will never leave the minds of those involved, including me.” Mr Randall said he had a limited number of FESA bushfire survival guides in his office and would happily mail them to people who would like one.


Roleystone resident Danni Close is taking the famed story of a 15th century French peasant girl and mixing it Danni Close, third from left (crouching) is appearing in the Australian up with the smooth premiere of Virgin Warrior with Jayde Clark, Gilbert Hewett, Crystal grooves of the ’80s Suche, Melissa Kiiveri, Gary Ienco and Anthony Dillon. this March. The unlikely pairing is all part of the Australian premiere of rock opera Virgin Warrior at Phoenix Theatre, written by Zig Byfield and Peter Perchard. Directed by Jane Sherwood, it follows the story of 14-year-old Joan of Arc through song as she leaves home and demands an army from a nobleman, repeatedly defeating the English enemy. But at age 20 she is found guilty of heresy by the French church and burned alive. First staged in 1986, Virgin Warrior uses a mix of strong dramatic songs ranging from haunting ballads to striking rock and choral anthems. Close plays one of the voices persuading Joan of Arc to go on her epic journey and an inquisitor who decides her fate after she is captured by the English. With a love of theatre from a young age, Close won the dux award for theatre at high school and went on to study sound for performance at the WA Academy of Performing Arts.

When the opportunity came up to go riding and support a great cause, Rainbow Riding School was there. A record crew of ten (including two diehard Roley riders) went along to the twilight Mega Fun Show Day organised by Kelmscott Pony Club, in support of Multiple Sclerosis on Saturday 21st January. The event was an unofficial dressage and showjumping day, which gave riders the opportunity to practice their eventing skills, check out the new grounds of Kelmscott Pony Club in Oldbury (which they now share with Peel Pony Club) and most of all, to have fun. All of the riders competed in 2–3 rounds, up against a total of 65 competitors on the day across 109 jumping rounds and 63 dressage tests. Sashes were awarded to sixth place, with the dressage winners scoring bonus earrings. Highlights of the day included Aviv’s speedy turns on Denny, Bradley and Janae impressing in their first ever show jump competition, and the chance to see Chief Instructor

Anita Moor in action. Proving she is our glorious leader for good reason, Anita pulled first place in the giddy 90cm round on reliable Chantilly. To cap off a great day, Rainbow Dad Terry Woods won second place in the raffle, picking up a Bendigo Bank account and accommodation. The event raised almost $2,500 for the MS Society of Western Australia and helped to raise awareness about this debilitating condition. Thanks are due to event organisers Dianne Ould, Gail Ware and Carole Indriolo, and also to Michelle Telford and all of the Kelmscott Pony Club crew for their brilliant work on a hot day and for making us all feel so welcome. Rainbow Riding School’s regular school term lessons are now back in full swing: call Chief Instructor Anita Moor on 043 8687 666 to check class availability. See you in the saddle! Karen Fouweather.

Preparing to Let Go (Continued) by Dr Judith Congrene Wow, I have been absolutely amazed by the incredible response from people who read my article from last month’s issue about preparing to let my beautiful dog Amy go from this life. Fortunately, she is still with me, and I feel very blessed to have had this extra time with her. I am very grateful to the Editor of Pet Assist 332 Home Vet Services The Valley Reporter for her genuine interest and understanding of the situation I was Compassionate convenient care of your pet at home sharing in that article. The response I have received shows that many people have faced the same dilemma where they have had to make that hard decision, and it is a Dr Judith M Congrene BSc BVMS grief that is close to their hearts. Veterinary Surgeon Whilst I was visiting the Roleystone Shopping Centre, a man recognised me from the drjcongrene@westnet.com.au cover photograph of Amy and I, and offered his condolences about my dog. I thought I had adequately explained in the article that Amy had decided it wasn’t time to go and that she was still with me, and when I asked him about that, he told me he hadn’t Excellent service, reasonable prices vaccinations, microchipping, routine health checks, treatment been able to finish the article because he was crying too much. It is truly amazing just of common problems including arthritis, allergies, abscesses, how close to the surface our emotions about animals can be, and how easily a trigger compassionate euthanasia of pets at home can bring them forth. A lady from South Perth emailed me to share that her aunt had sent the article to her, and she was clearly still struggling with the loss of her beloved Dalmatian Heidi, who had been put to sleep before Christmas. In her email she sent me a photo and some of the poems she had written about her companion Heidi, which made me think how touching it is that complete strangers can so willingly share their loss with others. Having to say goodbye to a much loved family member of the furry kind is often expressed more readily than we are able to do so for human family. A riding friend from Kondinin asked me to send a copy of The Valley Reporter out to her so that she could read the article. She also has a lovely old Staffy dog that is in “Heaven’s Waiting Room” who she has brought to Perth for me to treat. She knows that I understand and empathise with the difficulty of knowing when it is the right time, which is a very emotional decision to make, one that pet owners need a fair amount of support to get through that process. My personal experience as a vet is that often the best help I can give to a pet is to help their owner prepare to let them go.

Local Roleystone artist Felicia Lowe is holding her 3rd solo exhibition “daydreaming” at the recently opened gallery at the Zigzag Cultural Centre located in the heart of Kalamunda. This contemporary gallery covers some 90m2, complete with striking jarrah floors and specific track lighting, providing an ideal setting to showcase Felicia’s unique and wonderful acrylic and pastel artworks. Felicia has always been fascinated by colour, light and form, and has pursued her passion for this in her artwork over the past 20 years. Since relocating from Kalgoorlie to the Roleystone area some 6 years ago, Felicia’s focus has been to develop a wider and more diverse art practice, and this will be evident whilst viewing the Daydreaming exhibition.

You will be taken upon a journey through the local landscape together with the movement of the daylight, being drawn to look upon delightful scenes that we see each day yet mostly overlook. Through her artwork Felicia subtly reminds the viewers to observe the simple pleasures and joys that surround them everyday. The “Daydreaming” exhibition opens on March 23rd and continues to April 18th 2012 at the Zigzag Cultural Centre at 50 Railway Road, Kalamunda. Entry is free, and opening hours are 9am to 5pm on weekdays, and 10am to 4pm on weekends. Felicia will be in attendance on most days, with several workshops scheduled during the exhibition. Further information can be found on Felicia’s website - www.artfulflowe.com.

Storytelling Takes on a New Dimension in Bear and Bairn

www.alloutblinds.com

Bear and Bairn is a boy-meets-girl love story with a twist, the odd complication and some resolutions. The twist - he can talk and his girl can’t (you see, she’s a baby and he’s a bear). Not only that, he’s a teddy bear who’s supposed to be English but looks Scottish. He is also meant to work on a farm, but he sees no sign of a farm, and his wee bonnie Scottish lass takes ages to arrive. Bear is a talented story teller who tells his tale through words and pictures, the internet and the World Wide Web. His first

book, Bear and Bairn has its own website (www.bearandbairn.com), a home page, links to the characters, email addresses, related sites and editorial information. Interested? I’m glad. We’ve enjoyed bringing Bear and Bairn this far. Thanks to Fiona’s and Jayne’s talents (FN Grafix; Creative Web Design and Hosting) we can share the first Bear and Bairn for free. If you are still interested, be on the lookout for Bear and Bairn’s ‘Our Words And Pictures Story’ website www. ourpictorialstorybook.com


Most people think that lawn mowers have one purpose and one purpose only, but Craig Alford has found another use for it that could very well make a huge difference to a lot of lives. From March 11th to March 16th of this year, Craig, along with Fremantle Dockers player Aaron Sandilands, will be taking a 6 day roadtrip from Perth to Kalgoorlie on a Hustler Lawn Mower! Sponsored by Armadale Mower World and Powerup Lawncare Products, the “Rotary Ride for a Reason”, will cover a distance of approximately 670km in less than a week, a unique endeavour which Craig believes has never before been done in Western Australia. With an average of just under 120km per day, this lawn mower ride was driven by, in Craig’s own words, “madness”, but is aimed at raising both awareness and money for Rotary Club projects and the WA charity Wheels for Hope. On the long road to Kalgoorlie, Craig plans to stop and participate in various events to raise even more money, such as sausage sizzles and BBQ’s, visits Dockers Legend Aaron Sandilands will be joining to rotary clubs and Craig on the ride to Kalgoorlie. Photograph courtesy men’s sheds, and of http://www.mowerworld.com.au/rfar.htm. maybe he’ll even mow a few lawns for people. Throughout the journey Craig will keep fans of his trip up to date through social media, including TV coverage. If you’d like to see for yourself, go to the website http://www.mowerworld.com.au/ rfar.htm, where you can view the video about his impending trip. Craig hopes to one day push the limits even further by taking the Hustler mower on a 1400km trip around Australia. The Valley Reporter wishes him the best of luck in both of these endeavours.

The Darling Range Wildlife Shelter received over $2,000 as an unexpected donation from Café on the Dam in December 2011. The unforeseen (but very much welcomed) funds were used to purchase specialised intensive care units for immature and debilitated wildlife in need of a constant warm environment. The units have already been occupied by orphaned furless bandicoot joeys, which not only require around the clock feeding, but also an environment similar in warmth and humidity to their mothers’ pouches. The Shelter is a volunteer only and notfor-profit wildlife rehabilitation centre which rehabilitates Australian native wildlife in need. Over 100 members

To celebrate the opening of AQWA’s new Turtle Pool the AQWA Foundation and Grill’d Healthy Burgers Hillarys are teaming up for the turtles this February. The AQWA Foundation is a non-profit organisation established by AQWA to increase awareness, understanding and appreciation of WA’s oceans by funding important marine endeavours, such as the rehabilitation of sick and injured marine life. To add your support all it takes is a visit to AQWA to see the turtles currently in our care at the new Turtle Pool, or by grabbing a bite at Grill’d and voting for the AQWA Foundation! With every meal purchased at Grill’d this February customers will receive a token to vote for their favourite local cause - the cause with the most tokens at the end of the month will receive a donation from Grill’d. So head down to Grill’d Hillarys and have a bite for the turtles! FACT – Turtles don’t have any teeth! They use their tough beak and crushing plates to chow down on tricky food like jellyfish... probably not as tasty as a Grill’d burger.

Sri Chinmoy (1931-2007) was well known as a spiritual teacher, but was also a prolific artist, poet, author, sportsman and musician. All his activities were dedicated to the noble cause of world peace. He composed over 21,000 songs, published over 1300 books and performed over 800 free peace concerts around the world, at venues such as Carnegie Hall, Royal Albert Hall and our very own Sydney Opera House. As a child in India, Sri Chinmoy learnt to meditate up to eight hours a day, a skill he applied when painting, drawing, and composing songs or poems. He chose birds as his main artistic focus and painted over 16 million of them in his lifetime. “The bird,” he said, “knows no boundaries. It is a messenger of peace and freedom, born in the garden of the soul and taking flight in the heart”. He called his art “Jharna-

Kala”, which in his native tongue means Fountain Art, a name that accurately describes the creative capacity he feels we all have within. Sri Chinmoy’s art has been exhibited at Parliament House, Canberra, at the Carrousel du Louve in Paris, the United Nations Headquarters in New York and the Commonwealth Institute in London. The Exhibition at Genesis will be a special selection of quality framed prints chosen for the occasion.

Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning the Kalamunda Water Park will open its doors three hours earlier - much to the delight of early risers. The Water Park will now be opening from 6am three times a week from February 1 until the summer season comes to an end on March 31. “There was a demand in the community for extended operating hours to cater for early morning swimmers and we thought it was a great idea, which we have taken on board,” said YMCA Recreations Office Manager Travis Doye. “We hope that the new opening hours give people a chance to come down and have a dip before work or school and an extra opportunity to dedicate some time to staying healthy through exercise.” The Kalamunda Water Park, formerly Kalamunda Wet’n’Wild, re-opened last month after $2.1 million worth of upgrades were made to the facility, including the re-turfing of grassed areas, landscaping, improvements to the main pool filtration and chlorination

system and a tiered grandstand with shading. Kalamunda Water Park is a multi-purpose aquatic facility owned by the Shire of Kalamunda and professionally managed by the YMCA of Perth. Shire President Donald McKechnie congratulated YMCA on their sound management of the park to date, saying, “I believe that the morning swim times are a very significant indication of the YMCA’s willingness to listen to and be a part of our community.” The YMCA is a not-for-profit organisation with over 150 years of experience working with children, young people and families. YMCA delivers programs and services to help build strong people, strong families and strong communities across WA. The organisation relies on a strong business model where missiondriven revenue generating activities such as childcare, facility management, accommodation and training, support a suite of youth and community programs, all of which can be viewed at www.ymcaperth.org.au. The Kalamunda Water Park is one of four WA locations where Australia’s biggest swim, the YMCA Swimathon, will take place on Sunday March 11. The event is the YMCA’s first national fundraiser and aims to raise $1 million and secure a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Armadale’s unique Youth Activity Area (YAA) has been in the making for more than a decade. After much research, design and anticipation the community space will be officially opened on Friday 17 February at 3.30pm. The YAA is a state-of-the-art community space and the only of its kind in Western Australia. International designers Convic Designs, in consultation with local young people, have created a space which incorporates features including viewing areas, multimedia screens, seating and an innovative, versatile sculptural steel surface. Hon. Terry Waldron will be in attendance as well as MC’s - Nathan, Nat & Shaun from Nova. There will be freestyle demostrations, music and a free sausage sizzle until 5.30pm. Armadale Mayor Henry Zelones said the one-of-a-kind project has been on the Council’s wish list for several years and it has been encouraging to see young people already using the park. “The space will act as a recreational hub for local youth and will also be of interest to park users. “The area’s unique multimedia feature allows users to watch themselves on large screens. The ‘real-time’ projection on screens allows users to view themselves doing tricks on their skateboards, BMX bikes and scooters. “The modern “street real” and digital elements are notable features of the park. The City is looking forward to utilising the YAA for future community and youth specific events” said Cr Zelones. The space is open to all members of the local and surrounding community. The Youth Activity Area is part of the City of Armadale’s 15 year plan for the development of important facilities in the district.

Log on, to plug in Blood donors can now save lives more easily by making an appointment to give blood online. The Australian Red Cross Blood Service is today launching online bookings for plasma and platelet donations. Previously, donors could only book a whole blood donation and would have to call the Blood Service’s contact centre to book for platelet or plasma donations. Blood Service spokesman Shaun Inguanzo said people could visit donateblood.com.au, or use their mobile phones to visit m.donateblood.com.au to make an appointment. “One in three of us will need blood in our lifetime yet only one in 30 actually give,” he said.

“We’ve now made it easier for donors to book or re-book online from either their computer or mobile phone. “Every donation you make save three lives, and by giving plasma and platelets you can donate more frequently, saving more lives more often.” Mr Inguanzo said Australia needed 27,000 blood donations every week. “For just an hour of your time, you can help save the lives of burns victims, road trauma patients, unborn babies and people undergoing emergency surgery,” he said. To donate visit donateblood.com.au or call 13 14 95.

Funky fashion from Peachy the ReStyle caravan, original music and an interactive art space are just some of the major attractions confirmed for Armadale’s exciting Evolution@Jull Street festival on Sunday April 22. Aiming to be WA’s biggest and most spectacular National Youth Week celebration, Evolution@Jull Street will showcase the talent, inspiration and enthusiasm of young people aged 12-25 through fashion, art and music. Taking centre stage in Armadale’s revitalised and bustling city centre, the all-day event will stretch from Armadale train station, through the Jull Street Mall to the Memorial Park amphitheatre.

Ms Bergmeier and fellow professionals from All Of The Above will help young people redesign vintage clothing sourced from the Kelmscott Drug ARM WA op-shop at special workshops in February.

City of Armadale Ward Review by Caroline Wielinga Local Governments are required to review their Ward systems every eight years, and the City of Armadale’s are now due for a review. The City currently has 7 Wards (Jarrah, River, Neerigen, Palomino, Minnawarra, Heron and Lake) with 2 Councillors in each (see http://www.armadale. wa.gov..au/Home/Your_ Council/Councillors). Each Councillor should represent roughly the same number of residents, but due to the rapid urban expansion in the west around Forrestdale, this is not the case. As a result, at the least a review would be aiming to redraw the Ward boundaries and hence even up the numbers per Ward a bit.

There is likely to be another adjustment, however, as the State Government would prefer for there to be less Councillors per Local Government, with a goal between 6 and 9. The Council may try to retain 14 or so Councillors, or reduce their numbers to 9 or less. If a significantly lower amount of Councillors is the chosen option, there will probably be significant Ward boundary changes, or as was the case for Gosnells, a removal of the Wards altogether. There may also be Wards with different numbers of Councillors in each, depending on their size. Wards are roughly established to have residents with similar demographics/needs etc. In any event, it appears likely that the Hills region of the City of Armadale will have less Councillors representing it soon.

Total Listings Moving Towards Equilibrium of 12,000

Fraser Williams...

The amount of listings on the market in the Perth Metro area is going down!! You will notice that the number of listings peaked at 18,023 in April 2011 and has since dropped by 4,250 in January 2012 which equates to a 23.6% reduction in stock levels in the past 9 months.

in Roleystone than any other Sales Representative from any other company! (From 1.7.11, Source: REIWA)

The listing reduction has come about through a number of reasons including reduction of interest rates (costs less to borrow), increased housing affordability (you have to borrow less) and increasing rents (you may as well take the plunge and purchase a property instead of paying high rent). There has also been a modest increase in house prices as ‘upgraders’ are back in the marketplace – this is evident in the Southern Hills with good interest in homes between the $500,000 and $700,000 price bracket. First Home Buyers are busy as well; they currently form 29% of all sales. At this point in time, 2012 is looking like a very positive year in real estate.

safari 2012 gaining speed The 2012 Australasian Safari is quickly gaining speed, with planning for this year’s event already firmly underway. Road crews have already locked down the first few legs of the race, with the course set to take a different direction to previous years. Discussions are being held in a number of Western Australian towns to find new locations for 2012. The course aims to stay in the mid west coast area, covering the Murchison and Gascoyne regions. There are some stunning stages planned that will showcase Western Australia’s diverse terrain, and provide a great challenge for competitors. Expressions of interest are open now, with less then two months to go for

discounted entries. We’ve already received interest from around Australia, as well as internationally from South Africa and Europe. A new addition to the 2012 event is the Safari Challenge, a great way to experience the thrill of the race first hand. It will allow road-registered 4WD’s to enter the competition elements of the Safari without the need for a competition vehicle. Also new for 2012 will be the inclusion of UTV’s and Side by Sides. More

details can be found in the Pre Event Guide, available to download online from www.australiansafari.com.au. For any assistance or additional information please contact the Australasian Safari office on 9445 2645 or email info@australasiansafari.com.au.

Are you a Mum in Roleystone? Then check out the “Roleystone Mothers Rock” group on Facebook What was once just a handful of school mums invited to the Roleystone Country Club for a few Friday night drinks has now become a group boasting over 160 members! The Facebook page is a wonderful networking tool in an open forum setting for Roleystone mothers with children of all ages to spread information on local events (including sports), some of the mother’s business ventures, and of course updates on when the next girls night out is! The last girls night out was Friday 3rd of February at the Country Club, and had about 40 mothers in attendance. At each event the mothers hold a raffle to raise money for a different charity, the most recent of which resulted in $90 raised for Childhood Cancer Research. Other events planned include big family picnics at the local park, Christmas in July, which they just might let the husbands come to this time! “The main idea was for us Mums to keep each other posted on information and events within the community that affect us or interest us as mothers, and to also inform everyone about when the girls nights out are planned!” said Caren Dorman, administrator of the group. “It’s basically all us Mums having a bit of fun” added Emma Milanese. In addition to joining the group on Facebook, (or if you aren’t using Facebook) you can also join the email list! Just send an email with your name, advising you wish to join the list to roleymumsrock@hotmail.com and you will be added! While you won’t get all the forum information, you will still be advised of any upcoming events.

if exotic diseases such as footand-mouth disease (FMD) were accidently introduced to Australia. An outbreak of FMD in England in 2001 cost their economy equivalent to $16 billion dollars (in 2001 figures) and involved over 2000 cases and 10 million sheep and cattle were destroyed. An outbreak of similar magnitude in Australia would cause enormous damage to our economy, impact heavily on communities and farmers, and have significant consequences to our environment. What FeralPigScan provides: • A website on feral pigs providing useful information on feral pigs, their impacts, control techniques and where to go for assistance; • A mapping tool to help anyone map feral pigs, the damage (or problems) they cause, and areas where control is being undertaken; • A facility for landholders, landcare or community groups, local government, research groups or education institutions to access resources, connect with others, and find out about available funding support; • Joining FeralPigScan is easy.

FeralPigScan is a new project that anyone can participate in. It is part of a citizen science project through the Invasive Animals CRC and provides a free web-based mapping tool to assist farmers, community groups, and individuals with the management of feral pigs and their impacts anywhere throughout Australia. Recent rainfall in many regions is expected to allow feral pig populations to increase and landholders, community groups and researchers are worried their numbers will boom in coming years. That is why we need to gather up-to-date information about where feral pig populations are located, so they can be controlled to prevent the damage they can cause. Feral pigs are estimated to cause $106.5 million damage each year to primary production, our environment and social values (estimated in 2004 dollars). They are also listed as a key threatening process for biodiversity, meaning they are a major threat to our native flora, fauna and ecosystems. Farmers face major problems with feral pigs each year as they damage crops, fences, water points, and spread livestock disease. Feral pigs threaten our food security and also pose a significant risk

The Leukaemia Foundation is calling on Australians to ‘be brave and shave’ during this year’s World’s Greatest Shave, to help raise $15 million for blood cancer research and support. The Leukaemia Foundation’s biggest fundraiser is back from 15-17 March, and thousands of people will get sponsored to shave or colour their hair to raise funds to help people with leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma and related blood disorders. Each week, approximately 17 West Australians are expected to be diagnosed with leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma. “Blood cancers are devastating. Treatment can begin within 24 hours and continue for years. It’s especially tough for the regional families who need to relocate to the city for treatment,” said Carolyn Turner, General Manager for the Leukaemia Foundation in WA. The money raised from the World’s Greatest Shave funds free services to support patients and their families, including information, emotional care, transport to and from treatment and accommodation for regional West Australians required to move closer to city hospitals. “Money raised also funds vital blood

cancer research. It will surprise many to learn that blood cancer is Australia’s biggest cancer killer after lung cancer, claiming a life every two hours,” she said. The Leukaemia Foundation is the only national not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the care and cure of patients and families living with blood cancer and related blood disorders. It receives no ongoing government funding and relies on support from the community and corporate sector. “We are aiming to raise $1.9 million in WA and we need people of all ages and walks of life to take part at home, work or school. Happening again this year is our Mining Challenge and in schools across the country is ‘Crazy Hair Day 4 Kids’. It is great fun for a great cause,” said Carolyn. New this year and launching this week, is the World’s Greatest Shave “Chinface Yourself” app on Facebook. The app allows users to upload their own photo and create a ‘Chincharacter’, similar to those seen in the distinctive World’s Greatest Shave ads. Sign up early and give yourself the best chance of reaching your fundraising goal at worldsgreatestshave. com or 1800 500 088.

From the Principal On behalf of the Executive and staff I would like to formally welcome all families both new and existing to our College for 2012. There has been an enormous amount of work completed by a dedicated and committed group of parents and staff that has enabled us to reach this most important moment – week one of the Roleystone Community College journey. The community information and tour sessions were extremely well supported with over 600 individuals attending – generating much interest. As an outcome we have pleasingly secured far more enrolments then anticipated which has taken our College commencement numbers to over 700 students. Community representatives, Penny Walmsley, Kylie Arotis and Stacey Lochmuller have led, in recent weeks, a large group of ‘mums and dads’ who collectively have generated over ‘350 volunteer hours.’ This enabled a highly successful and strategic ‘Uniform Shop’ process to roll out seamlessly and ensure our students have been dressed so smartly. To all the uniform volunteers, once again I thank you for your hard work in what was extremely hot and uncomfortable conditions.

Indy Hamilton has been made Head Girl of Roleystone Community College for 2012. Indy said “As the first Head Girl of Roleystone Community College, I am looking forward to connecting with the younger children in activities and welcoming students to our fantastic new and improved College. I will be joined by 8 other students who are House Captains. As the Head Girl of RCC my role

Our Staff faculty for 2012 is rich in both experience and talent, complimented by youth and an unbridled enthusiasm for the year ahead. Families over the next few weeks should avail themselves of the opportunities to meet with their appropriate teachers during ‘classroom information’ sessions to occur over the first few weeks of term. I did advise at the ‘Information Sessions’ that the first set of College assemblies will occur in Week 5 where we will celebrate and present the Student Leadership Cohort for 2012 with their badges. At this time, I would like to congratulate Indy Hamilton on her appointment to the position of Head Girl and wish her every success in her role. She will be ably assisted by a suite of ‘to be elected’ Student Leaders from Years 5 – 10. In addition, our Deans of House will be initiating a selection process to identify our ‘House Captains’ for this year. In closing, I would like to wish staff, students and families a most enjoyable and successful Roleystone Community College experience and thanks once again to those families who have featured so strongly these past two years in terms of support and encouragement. Sincerely, Peter Thatcher.

will also require me to represent the College in Community forums when required by the Principal, Mr. Peter Thatcher”. Congratulations Indy!

Roleystone Theatre is preparing for their 2012 program with the WA premiere of David Mamet’s comedy “Boston Marriage”, which is currently in rehearsal. Under the direction of Lesmurdie resident Eliot McCann, “Boston Marriage” follows the story of Anna and Claire, two 'women of fashion' who live together on the fringes of upper class society in early 20th century America. Anna (Cicely Binford) has just become the mistress of a wealthy man, from whom she has received an enormous emerald and an income to match. Claire (Lisa Skrypichaiko), meanwhile, is infatuated with a respectable young lady and wants to enlist the jealous Anna's help for an assignation. As the two women exchange barbs and take turns tormenting Anna's hapless maid (Amy Russotti), Claire's young inamorata suddenly appears, triggering a crisis that put both the valuable emerald and the women's futures at risk. The acclaimed playwright David Mamet is best known for the Pulitzer Prize winning drama “Glengarry Glen Ross”, and his screenplays for “Wag The Dog” and “State and Main”. A sharp and fast paced comedy reminiscent of Oscar Wilde, Roleystone Theatre’s production of “Boston Marriage” plays April 13, 14, 18, 20 and 21 at 8pm. Bookings can be made on 9397 5370 or at tickets@roleystonetheatre.com.au.

“The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society Production of Macbeth” Kwinana Theatre Workshop is becoming the venue for one of the most disastrous evening's entertainment in many years. The ladies of the Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society are putting on their annual production, and this year it is a certain Shakespeare play that is well known for things going wrong... and boy, do they go wrong! Written by David MacGillivray and Walter Zerlin, Jr. this uproarious comedy play within a play, directed by Paul Treasure introduces the housing estate ladies and their producer, Plummer, and stage manager Henry. Their startlingly original production of Macbeth should get them to the Welwyn Garden City Finals, but with the carefully mascara’d eye of adjudicator George Peach, events conspire against them. Set in a village hall in a small country town somewhere in the south of England, the lovely ladies from Farndale do to Shakespeare’s Macbeth what Macbeth does to Scotland! The Farndale society are renowned for their legendary stage mishaps and audiences will again be keen as mustard to live their best performance, no matter what the play. In best comedic style as the play dictates, their dedication and enthusiasm is not matched by their ability. If anything possibly can go wrong it most probably will and generally does! Director, Paul Treasure explains that this play is a hilarious parody of one of Shakespeare's most notorious play. “The play was first performed for the Edinburgh Comedy Festival, where it won first prize.

Since then has been performed all over the world, and spawned a number of sequels, where the Farndale ladies take on everything from Noel Coward through to Science Fiction and even Gilbert and Sullivan. While the play uses the Scottish Play as its basis, it doesn't require a knowledge of the Shakespeare to enjoy its humour”. "In recent years I have been mainly directing big musicals, like Shout! and Charlotte's Web at Mandurah Performing Arts Centre, and thought that one of the Farndale plays would be a nice antidote to all the stress that comes from these mammoth ventures. It is good just getting back to roots again, and working with some of my favourite actors." 11 performances only (including two Sunday matinees) Featuring: Don Lee, Kharlee Hamel, Peter Carr, Rachael Hayter, Mel Sklenars, Penny Ramsell, Pamela Brown, Claire Ashcroft, Mark Thompson. Performance Dates: Feb 16, 17, 18, 19*, 23, 24, 25, 26*, March 1, 2, 3 Time: All shows commence at 8pm, *except Sunday Feb 19 & 26 at 2pm Doors open 30 minutes prior to curtain Venue: Koorliny Arts Centre, Sulphur Rd, Kwinana Tickets: Full $20, Conc $17 Bookings: Koorliny Arts Centre phone: 9467 7118 Book online - www. koorliny.com.au.


A Great Community Night Out Last Saturday, our beautiful bush setting at the Karragullen oval was the venue for the Roleystone Scouts first ever Movies Under the Stars event. As the big rig picture screen from Rural Cinemas was being set up, the first of 200 families, grandparents and kids started to arrive, bearing picnics, chairs and beanbags to settle in for a fantastic community night. Everyone enjoyed the locally made Roleystone high anti-smoking short film “No Reason”, as well as the inspiring 2013 promo for the Scout jamboree, which showed as they chowed down on a gourmet sausage sizzle with home made chutneys and sauces. In true Roleystone fashion, things didn’t go quite to plan and contingency plans had to be made. First, the antique toilets (which seriously need an upgrade) had the gentlemen easing the bushland drought, and the women finding their way in the dark... that is until the Casurina truck rolled This community group is proudly supported by Theinto Valleytown Reporterwith all the spotlights, headlights, pretty lights, beepers and whistles you could imagine. During the feature film, Pixars “Up”, the retic came on and the kangaroos came out, but luckily none were close enough to upset the nights proceedings. All in all, it was a great community night out and successful fundraiser, which had many people asking when the next one would be held. A big thanks must go to our many sponsors, in particular the Roleystone Cricket club, who kindly helped out with a double booking on the oval. Also, thanks to Cr Grant Nixon who did a bit of council wrangling on our behalf. Let’s do it again! Denise Hardie, Roleystone Scouts Fundraising Committee.

10 reasons to shop local … things to let your customers know

Local shops sell a wide variety of great products at affordable prices. You’d be surprised by the range of products and gifts available at your local stores. Shopping local saves you money. Out-of-town shops have done a great job convincing us that sole trading = expensive, but the evidence doesn’t back this up at all. If you consider how much it costs your wallet (and your watch) to travel to shops further away, plus parking, and the fees to transport larger items home, the overall cost is much higher. Shopping locally retains our communities. People don’t like losing shops and services in small towns and villages, but often neglect to show this in how they spend their money. Shops will only survive if customers spend locally, so if you want to keep your vibrant town centre, where people can socialise as well as shop, make sure you shop locally. Shopping local retains our uniqueness – no clone towns allowed! Many town centres across the country can start looking the same, what with certain recurring franchises and multinationals. Independent shops create distinctive shopping experiences, and keep traditional local products in stock. They respond more quickly to the needs of local customers, providing products to meet the changing population’s needs. They can also be more innovative! Shopping local saves the environment. We are all aware of CO2 emissions and the impact we have on our environment. Local shops, which stock a high percentage of local sourced goods and products do not require long car and bus journeys to get to, meaning that shopping local helps reduce your carbon footprint. Shopping local creates jobs. Shops in our town centres and villages generate local employment and self employment for people, who in turn spend their money in the local economy. Over half a million people are employed in retail in our rural towns and villages. Local independent shops invest more in our community. Sole traders and independent stores are proportionally more generous in their support for local charities, carnivals, schools and community events. Supporting local shops means a financial return for our community. Local shops are for everyone! Even the elderly, the very young, or those without access to transport can get to their local shops easily. Keeping your shops open by buying locally helps the whole community. Local shops value you more. Evidence shows people receive better customer care and service in local shops, where their individual needs can be catered to. Traders often survive solely by their reputation and repeat business - so shopping local means that you get a higher standard of service. Shopping local saves services. Private, voluntary and public sector services cluster around shops. The loss of the high street often corresponds to a reduction in these services. As shops disappear, so do hairdressers, vets, dentists etc. SO… shop smart, shop local
