The Kanyana Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre has it’s annual Open Day on Sunday 6th of May from 10am to 4pm. The event will feature a range of stalls and free children’s activities, so come along and help raise much-needed funds for the sick, injured, orphaned and displaced wildlife. The RoleystoneKarragullen branch of the Bendigo Bank celebrated its 5th Birthday on the 31st of March at the local shopping centre on Jarrah Road. On the whole, it was a most enjoyable occasion, and everyone at the Bendigo is looking forward to their next milestone celebration. See inside this issue for some great pictures of the day. The hills are alive with the sound of music, and Roleystone’s very own man of music is to thank for it. Joel Sheard has a much loved past time with violins, which he has taken a step further by conducting open workshops in violinmaking. Read the full story on page 14 and 15. The Roleystone Community College will soon be on

the big screen for all to see. The College recently was selected along with 3 other schools to have the Greenfingers team from Guru Productions come and create a sustainable garden for them. The show will be aired on Sunday 22nd and Sunday 29th of April on Channel 7, between 5:30pm and 6:00pm. A team of students and teachers recently visited Tass1 Trees Nursery, to find out more, check out the great story and photographs on page 16 and 17. The change of seasons has also brought a change of sports for many Roleystone residents. Now is the time to put on your club colours and shout out for your local teams. Look inside page 18 of this month’s Valley Reporter for the Roleystone Senior Football Club’s 2012 fixtures. There are nine Cross Park home games, so come along and enjoy! This month’s issue also contains a Tales from a Traveller story, see page 23 for “Delights of Da Lat”. Don’t forget, if you have a holiday experience you’d like to share, good or bad,

My Easter Offering – Resurrection Flower Ever since coming to Roleystone back in 1956, during late March and early April, I have gazed in wonder at the beautiful flowers that spring up in clumps and rows along the roads, streets and highway. After many scorching summer days, the Sol King (the Sun) seems to lose his power, and

the flowers unexpectedly begin to slowly regenerate from the dry, hardened ground. The long stems sprout forth into beautiful bursts of white, pink or red blossoms that live for about a month before returning to their earthy crypts to await another resurrection day. The Easter Lily, officially known as Amaryllis Belladonna, can generally be seen in the older parts of the community, so it must have been a flower cherished and appreciated by the pioneers. When I see them flowering, I know our battle with Sol is over for a while, and that Easter is on its way. To me, it is a symbol of the crucifixion and the resurrection. Benjamin Seabrook, Roleystone. I am writing to express my dismay at the actions of certain people who, on the early morning of April 12th, hit a large grey kangaroo on Peet Road. I understand that these animals can sometimes come out of nowhere, and I cannot fault anyone for hitting a kangaroo, but if you do, at least have the decency to pull the carcass off the road. This large dead kangaroo was left in the middle of the lane, presenting a hazard to all road users. It’s unlikely that the road was busy at the time you hit the kangaroo, so there is really no excuse for not stopping and doing the right thing. I have seen this sort of lack of care on several occasions around Roleystone, sometimes with people’s pet (mostly cats), which is even more disappointing to see. Rob Kidd, Roleystone.

On behalf of the Leukaemia Foundation in WA, I would like to thank your readers who participated in and supported the World’s Greatest Shave 2012. Tens of thousands of brave Aussies signed up to shave or colour their hair to help lessen the impact of blood cancer by taking part in this year’s campaign. As the Foundation receives no ongoing government funding, funds raised for the World’s Greatest Shave will help meet the increasing demand for our support services which sees one Australian diagnosed with a blood cancer or a related blood disorder every 46 minutes. Sadly, every two hours, someone loses their life to blood cancer. Each year, the Foundation supports thousands of people and their families by providing free services including: information, emotional support, transport and accommodation for regional families required to relocate closer to city hospitals. We also invest millions of dollars each year into vital research to improve treatments and find cures for blood cancer. This year, we set our biggest fundraising target at $1.9 million. Thanks to all of our supporters, we have now raised a recordbreaking amount in WA and have achieved our goal. Donations can still be made at For the 11,500 Australians projected to be diagnosed with blood cancer or a related blood disorder this year, your readers’ support of the World’s Greatest Shave will make all the difference. On behalf of all the patients and families in Western Australia who will be helped as a direct result of you supporting the World’s Greatest Shave, Thank You. Carolyn Turner, General Manager Leukaemia Foundation WA.

Armadale resident recognised at annual Disability Support Worker Awards “Disability support workers have an enormous impact on the lives of the people they care for, their families and our community and it is important to recognise these positive effects.” Dr Chalmers said the awards were a chance to praise the steadfast efforts of disability support workers and their vital role in changing people’s attitudes about disability. He also acknowledged their efforts under sometimes challenging and difficult circumstances. It takes a person with a strong commitment to human rights and social justice to take on this role. The Disability Support Worker Awards highlight how their work is appreciated by so many and why their skills set is so valued. “This is the heart of the Count Me In: Disability Future Directions vision that believes in creating a fair go for everyone in society, including people with disability.”

Armadale resident Katie Trinder has been recognised at the 2012 Disability Support Worker Awards as an up-and-coming leader in the disability sector. Announced at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre in March, the annual event - now in its fourth year - is hosted by National Disability Services WA in partnership with the Disability Services Commission. A finalist for the Emerging Leader Award (sponsored by Ansvar Insurance), Ms Trinder was acknowledged for her role as a support worker for Nulsen. “Katie has shown great creativity in meeting the needs of individuals while forging strong and supportive bonds with families and carers,” Commission Director General Dr Ron Chalmers said. “She does her best to use every situation as an opportunity for people to learn and practice new skills and experience enjoyment and success. “By creating twoway communication books for one family, they were given reassurance about the quality of their son’s life and allowed them to have a greater connection with their son and the workers who support him.” NDS WA State Manager Terry Simpson said his organisation was proud to host and celebrate the annual Disability Support Worker Awards. The awards recognise the outstanding achievements and contributions made by disability support workers in furthering the quality of life and inclusion of people with disability in Western Australia. One in five West Australians has a disability and almost a third of this group require some form of personal assistance.

The Kalamunda Chamber of Commerce is proud to be present the Bickley Harvest Festival on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th May. This community-based festival is a showcase of the picturesque Bickley Valley and is proudly supported by the Shire of Kalamunda and the Eastern Metropolitan Regional Council. The Bickley Harvest Festival is held annually on the first weekend in May. The festival presents visitors with a glorious taste of the Bickley Valley including many fine wines, cider, food, arts and crafts, entertainment as well as a myriad of autumn colours throughout the picturesque valley. During the festival, artistic talent will be on show from the local arts and crafts groups to boutique owner operated wineries, offering tastings from their hand crafted wines that employ the same methods of cool climate production as the Margaret River region. Meals will be available at many venues as

well as locally grown organic fruit and vegetables, free range eggs, devonshire teas, organic chocolates and other local produce. Many of the participating venues feature entertainment such as live music. Last year’s event attracted crowds of approximately 2,500 predominately from across the Perth metropolitan region. Visitors are encouraged to pick up a Harvest Festival Map and visit participating venues across the weekend. The big change for 2012 is the reintroduction of a Bus Service. Visitors will be able to park and ride, allowing easier access to more venues and reducing parking issues. Guests at the launch event were presented with a range of wines from the contributing venues, complimented with matched canapés. Highlights included a presentation of native animals from Kanyana Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre and presentations by selected winemakers.

The following constitutes a list of beverages presented for tasting at the Harvest Festival Launch on 14 April, at Core Cider House; · Core Cider House - Apple & Pear Cider · Carldenn - Sparkling · Due Jolly - Chardonnay · Fairbrossen - Rose · Hainault - Rose · Ashely Estate - Pinot Noir · Myattsfield - Mourvedre · Aldersyde Vineyard - Shiraz For more information on the Bickley Harvest Festival or a copy of the map go to: www.

Teaching Excellence Award At Good Shepherd School this year the whole community is working hard to include the value of excellence in every aspect of all that we do. In fact, the school mission statement has been adapted to highlight the quality, ‘Excellence in Learning through Faith, Love and Laughter’. One of the teachers, Mrs Diana Newman has lived up to this expectation by being awarded the Catholic Education Award of Excellence. Specifically, the award is for excellence in her work in the Bidjara Project. The project was started in 2011 and formalised the educational use of the school’s unique environment and animals. Students in the project enjoy the experience of working in the ‘outdoor classroom” by engaging in activities such as the growing of vegetables, caring for the chickens and goats, and cooking seasonal vegetables. The project provides an opportunity to further develop literacy, numeracy, technology and social skills while creating friendship and leadership opportunities. Easter Egg Raffle Good Shepherd has a wonderful tradition of an Easter Egg Raffle. The Parent Group collect eggs for weeks that are kindly donated by the parents. This year a large basket of the eggs were donated to Centrecare for children who would otherwise not receive any eggs. On a special day after the whole school walked the story of Jesus through the Stations of The Cross, the raffle prizes were drawn. Lots of happy children were winners of many Easter Egg prizes.

Muddy Bear Hunt As part of their exploration of the text We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen, the Kindergarten students at Good Shepherd Catholic Primary School Kelmscott went on a messy, muddy bear hunt. With the help of Kerry Logan from Nature Play Solutions, students were able to experience first hand playing in the ‘thick oozy mud’. Good Shepherd Catholic When interviewed about his experience Ashton said “My favourite part was rolling in the mud because I Primary School Arbuthnot St Kelmscott love getting dirty. It felt nice and oozy.” Joe answered “I throwed the mud at people and they throwed it back at me. They all made me into a muddy snowman. It felt squishy and like ice-cream.” Enrolments for kindergarten 2013 will be held in May, please contact the school office for further information, 9495 1622.

Get Up Close & Personal at Kanyana Open Day

The Roleystone branch of the Bendigo Bank celebrated its 5th Birthday on the 31st of March at the local shopping centre on Jarrah Road, and thanks to everyone who joined in, it was a great event. The free samples of locally made birthday cake drew in the crowd like bees to flowers, but they stayed for the wonderful friendly atmosphere and a chance to get in the raffle. The winner of the competition, which involved guessing how much money was in the Bendigo Piggy Box, was Jack Rigby. Congratulations Jack! It was a great opportunity for Branch Manager Tony Jacobs and other bank staff to socialise with their loyal customers and neighbours, as well as a great time for the Bendigo Piggy to make an appearance. Thanks to local artist Wendy Van der Laan, who offered free face painting, the next generation of savers in the area were instantly recognisable. On the whole, it was a most enjoyable occasion, and everyone at the Bendigo is looking forward to our next milestone celebration.

Give Your Old Car a New Lease on Life Firefighters are on the lookout for the community’s old unwanted cars to assist in vital road crash rescue training Last year, highly skilled Fire and Rescue Service and Volunteer Fire and Rescue Service firefighters attended 200 major road crashes that required rescue or extraction. There is a higher demand for donated cars at the FESA Training Centre this year, because there are more firefighter training courses scheduled. FESA Applied Training Officer Ian Joseph said the practical experience of training on real cars was vital. “Simulating road crashes using unwanted cars is essential for practical training, skill retention and ensuring any impact on patient injuries is minimised,” Mr Joseph said. “We teach techniques to gain entry to trapped vehicle occupants, such as removing the roof or doors, gaining access to the engine compartment or boot, removing glass from doors and windscreens while maintaining the structural integrity of the vehicle. “This year we’re running three Trainee Firefighting Schools, three Station Officer Development courses and a Skills Enhancement Program and all of these programs require vehicles for training. “If you have an unwanted car sitting in your driveway or taking up space in your backyard call us and we’ll gladly take it away for free,” he said.

Do you have a desire to make the violin you play, then local Joel Sheard, one of only 3 or 4 violin makers in WA may be your answer

• Friendly, personalised service • All types of plumbing & gas maintenance • Specialising in drain cleaning • Gas room heaters installed & serviced

Joel Sheard, a 29 year old living in Roleystone, is by all means a man of music. He has played the violin since Year 5, currently performs Ian 0409 297 939 with the Classic Sounds Orchestra, and shares his passion for music Ph/Fax 9390 1940 with his family of pianists, guitarists and singers. He even owns a violin which may well be over 170 years old! In his spare time, Joel has been working on developing an exciting new gadget for violin makers, which magnetically measures the thickness of a violin’s body. A prototype of the device, which he calls his !nstrumenTool magnetic caliper, was shown to general approval at a violin makers’ conference in Victoria, as well as on the ABC’s New Inventors Show.

violin lessons to eager students, and providing instrument repair services, Joel is currently holding unique violin-making sessions in his humble workshop in the hills. According to Joel, there is no formal place in Australia where violin-making can be studied, and there are only about 3 or 4 violin makers in Western Australia. Since most violin makers prefer not to share secrets of the trade with those they consider amateurs, Joel’s open workshops are very unique. Joel’s journey to his unusual profession began whilst he was doing Christian missionary work in Kenya, in January 2007, when he was suddenly struck ill by an unidentified sickness. While recovering, Joel kept himself occupied by attempting to repair his violin. Despite his first try being “dodgy”, he continued improving his skills by asking for advice from professional makers and repairers. Over five years later, Joel has made three violins from scratch, is in the process of completing a fourth,and has helped teach others to make many more. He is even planning to make his first cello! His talent for producing individual instruments from blocks of wood has garnered much interest from the people he now shares his knowledge with. Joel admits that the process has frustrating stages, such as the difficult task of properly positioning the soundpost, a small piece of wood which greatly affects how a violin sounds in the end. Also, mastering the various techniques necessary for each different hand

tool takes practice, and on some occasions, a little blood has been spilled. However, he also says that the rewarding feeling experienced as a violin is strung up and played for the first time is unlike anything else. “Even though I now sell the violins I make, I get to feel the privilege of a maker, the satisfaction of accomplishing something”, Joel said. “The sounds and tonal quality of a violin will dramatically change in the first few months of playing, and it’s very fascinating to see how the sound matures as the instrument is exposed to new and different frequencies”. In order to ensure that the instruments’ bodies can withstand the power of musical frequencies and string tension, Joel sources and provides his students with the traditional woods used for violins and violas, spruce and maple, which are known for their acoustic qualities as well as structural strength. He has also had the opportunity to use a rarer King William pine wood, which he plans to use for his upcoming cello project. Joel currently hosts full day-long classes on some Saturdays, and is willing to make more spaces and

sessions available if interest demands it. Joel has high hopes for expanding his workshop and number of students, and is also looking to take someone on as an apprentice. For learners, the process of fashioning your own violin or viola will require a considerable amount of time, effort and commitment. If you attend a day-long session once every month, you could be holding your completed instrument in about 2 years’ time. Each daylong session costs $80, and (depending on the student’s needs) material costs could cost around $400 to $500, so think carefully on if you’re up to the challenge. Whether you play the violin, viola, or just have a passion for woodwork, learning how to make your very own instrument from scratch is a very rewarding experience to consider. The Roleystone School of Violin Making can be found on instrumentool. com. Photographs and article courtesy of Elise Kelly.

children were treated to a sweet and sour taste extravaganza. Under the guidance of the horticulturist the children tasted raw sugar straight from the sugar cane which was grown on the property. They also got to taste native local bush fruit called Finger Lime and an African bush fruit called Miracle Fruit, which changes sour flavours into sweet. Mr Tassone shared interesting tips and background for growing plants. Tod Johnston and the crew were delighted with the students’ manners and overall behaviour. Their personal knowledge about topics discussed also impressed them, especially Jason Rustandi’s resolve when making statements in front of the camera. (right) Tod Johnston at Tass1 Trees.

Two more out of control parties and a drug lab discovery in Armadale recently has prompted renewed calls for a 24hour manned Armadale police station by Canning MHR Don Randall. Mr Randall said it was further proof more needed to be done in the area to combat crime and antisocial behaviour. “The petition for a round-the-clock manned police station now has almost 10,000 signatures,” he said. “The petition was initiated by a local resident/ and the number of signatures to this petition highlight that residents do want this. “My office is contacted on a daily basis about crime/hooning and antisocial behaviour in the Armadale and surrounding areas. “Residents deserve to have action on this, to feel safe in their homes, walking down the street or catching the train. To get these issues under control would give the whole area a real boost,” Mr Randall said if the petition was successful in the State Parliament, he understood it could take some time before the station was operational 24/7, and therefore had asked the Barnett Government to bolster police numbers in the area in the meantime. He hoped more police would be in the Armadale area by the end of April.

roleystone scouts proud owners of two new marquees

The Roleystone Scouts have become proud owners of two new marquees with inbuilt LED lights, thanks to the City of Armadale Community Grants program. Scout leader Jo Meuli said “We had such great feedback from the community about our ‘Movie Under the Stars’ night that we’d like to do more events like this. The new marquees will make organising our night time fundraising events so much easier for our volunteers. They will also provide much-needed shelter and shade during our daytime scouting activities. We would like to thank the City of Armadale for their generous contribution.”

Call Simon on 9397 6313 The South East Asia Youth Baseball-Softball Tournament (SEAYBST) is an annual competition hosted among baseball and softball clubs from Perth, Manila, Jakarta, Singapore and Bangkok. These tournaments are very much a friendship series, with some players and families from past tournaments returning year after year, creating new great memories. The level of game is constantly being risen with displays of players’ skills being exceeded and sportsmanship shown. Over the weekend, all teams managed to play 6 games in total, including a Consolation Final and Championship Final. The Perth All-Stars were very successful throughout the tournament and managed to clinch all three age-group championships in both baseball and softball, keeping the overall title home safe in Perth. Congratulations to the two Roleystone boys Trent McDonnell and Aaron Newland on their teams success. A big thank must go to the many sponsors who make the tournament successful by coming on board, as well as to the team of volunteers, umpires and score-keepers. Another big thank you goes to each of the Country Directors who have taken on the daunting task of organising your teams and families. Last of all, (but never least) thank you to all the players, coaches and managers of the teams. Without you, this tournament would not be the success it has been since 1986. See you all again in Singapore for the 2013 Tournament. And remember: S : Sportsmanship E : Enjoyment A : Appreciate Y : Youth B : Befriend S : Support T : Teamwork

Car Wash and Sausage Sizzle for Social and Development Projects

The YMCA and Shire of Kalamunda would like to inform the community and its valued customers that Kalamunda Water Park will be closed for the off season period from Sunday 1st April until November 2012. Shire President Donald McKechnie said, “The summer of 2011/12 saw the much anticipated re-opening of the community’s beloved Kalamunda Water Park (formerly Kalamunda Wet ‘n’ Wild). I would like to thank all of the local residents and loyal patrons from further a field flocked to come and enjoy the refreshed facility over the summer.” “I also look forward to all the new programs and initiatives YMCA is planning for the 2012/2013 season.” With over 3 million dollars spent on major refurbishment and the YMCA taking over management of the centre, Kalamunda Water Park’s first summer since the redevelopment was one of sun, fun, community development and social responsibility. The future is looking bright. The first year of operation has been an exciting period for the YMCA. Key highlights have included the introduction of the YMCA’s ‘Aqua Safe’ learn to swim program along with an expansion on programs and services offered from the facility. On March 11th the YMCA hosted its first ever national fundraising event, the ‘YMCA Swimathon’. Funds generated from the event went towards supporting YMCA’s benevolent programs. Over $100,000 was raised nationally. Kalamunda Water Park was the highest fundraising centre across Australia raising over $10,000 towards YMCA Perth’s Big Brothers, Big Sister’s Program. The success of Kalamunda Water Park was largely attributed to individual fundraising efforts of Michael Hanlin ($5,344), the Mullings family ($2,000), the Giolitto family ($855) and the Hasset family ($628). Many thanks needs to be given to all those who got involved and made this a great event while supporting a great cause. This year Australia Day came alive at Kalamunda Water Park with its first Australia Day Party held in balmy 40 degree temperatures. This was an action packed family fun day with Aqua inflatables, entertainment and various novelty events to keep both the big and little kids happy. There was some serious competitors in the pie eating competition and a record breaking 47m throw was achieved in the thong throwing competition. Asides from the highly renowned waterslides, the entertainment on the day helped to ensure that a memorable Australia Day was had by all in attendance. The YMCA’s believes in delivering programs to help build strong people, strong families and strong communities. If you have any suggestions on programs or services you would like to see operated from Kalamunda Water Park in the future, then please leave your feedback on facebook or go to YMCA staff and management would like to thank the local community for their continued support and look forward to seeing you all again in November 2012 when Kalamunda Water Park re-opens for the 2012/13 summer pool season.

Do you have a dirty car that needs cleaning? If so, then the Roleystone Shopping Centre is the place to be between 10am and 2pm on Saturday April 21st. The crew from Roleystone Community Church will be cleaning windscreens for a dollar, and washing whole cars for as little as five dollars. Even if your car doesn’t need washing, you’re welcome to enjoy a freshly cooked sausage for lunch. Funds raised will support development and outreach projects in Mexico, Romania, the Middle East and a Youth Program in Perth. Much of this work is being done by people with strong Roleystone connections such as Rob Chapman, who is growing coffee on rooftops in Mexico and Matt Fricker, who is Coffee trees growing on former Roleystoner, Rob Chapman’s training youth leaders.

The Management and staff would like to acknowledge Amy Foyster as the winner of the Roleystone Supa IGA and Cadbury Easter Raffle. congratulations amy!

“We live in music. Great music nourishes us in ways we don’t even realise. It inspires us, relaxes us, energises us; in short, it heals us and keeps us well. The universe is a tonal symphony of many sounds interacting and vibrating together. Music is the pulse of the energy that vibrates and courses in and through everything.” Amrita Cottrell, Music Therapist. “Music without words means leaving behind the mind. And leaving behind the mind is meditation. Meditation returns you to the source. And the source of all is sound.” - Kabir. “The overtones produced by the crystal singing bowls have resonant and healing properties unlike anything we have encountered. The bowls emit tones that resonate with the human voice, sounds that permeate our systems, resonating with our essence, so that

inner chaos, conflict and dissonance are transformed into harmony.” - Mitchell Gaynor, MD, The Healing Power of Sound. Sound nutrition sessions are about rediscovering the connection to self, others and the planet. They are about re-energising and/or relaxing the body, as well as becoming aware of the space you are in when your mind switches off. They are about healing and being present with what is. All of this is achieved by drum circle activities, group toning, and immersion in sacred sound vibrations from crystal singing bowls, gongs, wind chimes and native American flutes. Take the time out for yourself to connect, relax, and revitalise with other like-minded people. Find out for yourself how quality sound experiences affect your body, mind and spirit. Anyone can do

Delights of Da Lat

by Marjorie Vincenti

Da Lat, capital of the Lam Dong province, is a small city situated in the central highlands of Vietnam, between Saigon and Nha Trang. Like much of Vietnam, Da Lat was colonised by French explorers and settlers during the 1890’s, giving the popular tourist location a very French flavour. Many houses still have a more European style, and are very beautiful. Night markets are held every night in the central area, and every Saturday and Sunday night, the area is declared a “walking town”, with no cars of motorbikes allowed. I had the opportunity to live as a local, going to market every morning to buy food for the day. I was honoured to be invited to many homes for dinner to eat traditional food. Da Lat is a very lucrative export industry centre, as well as one of Vietnam’s flower capitals.

McFarleane House Learning Centre is situated at Germon Homestead, 27 Wheatley Street, Gosnells. Nearly forty years ago, our volunteers began teaching and assisting people from all walks and stages of life to learn, perfect and continue their unique and individual passions. We are still accomplishing this today, but we need to let the public know that we are here as a service to our community. Most of the time we do our own projects such as sewing, knitting, embroidery, card making, and crocheting etc. We also have workshops on Friday afternoons where you can all learn to do/make a new project, or just spend some time having a chat with coffee and cake. Our courses are run by volunteer tutors who are there to help and encourage you to pursue new projects. What we offer is both positive for the mind and body, so we invite you all to come along and have a chat to our volunteers and see if we can be of assistance to you. We have a table at McFarleane House with “home made” goodies produced by our groups that you can purchase.

Anzac Day 25 April 2012 The Kelmscott-Roleystone Branch of the RSL invites members of the public, as well as all current and ex-service personnel, to attend the dawn service at Rushton Park on River Road, Kelmscott. The service, which will begin promptly at 6am, will take place at the Cenotaph on the corner of Orlando Street and River Road Kelmscott. A second service will be conducted at the Kelmscott Hall, starting at 3pm and concluding at approximately 4pm. For more information, ring 9495 4838 during business hours.

In short, to a degree it already is……….. Most of the activity described within the ‘$500 Billion’ number is related to WA and is already putting us in a state based enviable number one position of having the highest population / economic / employment and retail growth. It is also interesting to note that of the $500 billion mining boom, only 20% has been spent – we are yet to see the ‘bulk of the mining boom’ hit!!! Due to the demand over the next 18 months for tens of thousands of workers for the likes of BHP, FMG and RIO - we are looking forward to a steady increase in residential property activity as an increasing percentage of these workers will continue to buy in our hills market place.

OPEN COMMUNICATION IS CRITICAL IN BUILDING A STRONG & UNDERSTANDING COMMUNITY Communication is a critical component in all walks of life, both at a personal level and on a broader community scale. People want and have a need to understand why decisions that may impact on their lifestyles or their amenity are being put forward. People have a right to understand the background to decisions being proposed and the opportunity to ask questions and express their opinions before the key decisions are made. For key decisions that impact on sections of a community to be made without any communication is, in my opinion, a sign of a lack of respect from The netball season is almost upon us and there are a number of important reminders for Roleystone Netball Club parents and players. • Please pay your registration fees now.

Former Roleystone Theatre performer gets sweet role in Austen classic Former Roleystone Theatre performer Carmen Miles is taking to the stage this May in a timeless love story from one of the most widely-read writers of all time. Directed by Vanessa Jensen at Melville Theatre, Jane Austen’s Emma follows a beautiful and clever young woman who prides herself on her matchmaking ability – but while she’s preoccupied with romance, she’s clueless to her own feelings of love. When Emma takes on a young friend as her latest project, her well-intentioned efforts misfire, leading to a whirlwind of complications. Miles plays Jane Fairfax, a character she describes as sweet,

talented and gentle. “She is a young relation of a poor but well-liked family in Emma’s town but is fated to become a governess because she has so little money,” she said. “Jane irritates Emma and is somewhat disliked by her – but not for any greater reason than the fact Jane is reserved and her talent and work ethic make Emma jealous. “It’s very different from most of the roles I have played over the years because I’m often cast as nasty, powerful women like Blanche Ingram in Jane Eyre or the Baroness in The Sound of Music. “Poor, mild-mannered Jane is the complete opposite of that. “It’s a refreshing change but it means I have to do a lot more experimentation with my voice and body than I would usually do because it’s so unlike what I have done before.” Performing from age 16, Miles has appeared in numerous musicals with Roleystone Theatre and several plays at the Old Mill, Melville, Phoenix, KADS and Harbour Theatres including Great Expectations, Jane Eyre, Jekyll and Hyde and Sherlock Holmes and the First English Gentleman. Last year, she won the Peter Kemeny Encouragement Award at Dramafest, the annual state drama festival, for her role in Edgar Allan Poe’s The Tell-Tale Heart. Miles has also been a character performer at Florida’s Walt Disney World, as part of Disney’s International College program providing work experience for international students – not bad for a neuroscience and genetics graduate who works as a research assistant for a vaccine development company headed by Nobel laureate Barry Marshall. A lover of period plays, she confessed her attraction to Emma was the chance to dress up and research the fashions and ways people used to live. Director Vanessa Jensen has adapted the script for stage herself, based on the original 1815 novel. “I am a Jane Austen fan, and have been for years,” she said. “I directed Pride and Prejudice at Melville Theatre and wanted to direct Emma next – but I struggled to find a version of Emma I liked. “They were all modernised and changed and the Did you know for as little as lyrical beauty of Austen’s words were often lost * with the propriety and manners hidden. per month “I asked myself what I was looking for and the The Valley Reporter can promote your answer was ‘the novel on the stage’, so I set out business in the best possible way! to dramatise it.
