Editorial

YOUR Region. YOUR Magazine. YOUR Valley Reporter.

It’s nice to see so many contributions from the Roleystone and surrounding community, proving that it truly is YOUR Region, YOUR Magazine and YOUR Valley Reporter. I hope you all enjoy reading the many stories in this edition. Perth recently held a Defence Force Air Show like no other and I’m sure the traffic congestion that came with it has all been forgotten. One Roleystone resident managed to be amongst the action and has written a recollection from the day turn to page 4. Finally, there is someone that understands that we need to put the ‘business’ back into small business. Shadow Minister for Small Business, Competition Policy and Consumer Affairs, Bruce Billson, recently attended a business breakfast at Roley’s on the Ridge to discuss how he would like to boost small business in outermetropolitan areas, such as those found in the electorate of Canning. Read what other initiatives he would like implement on page 6. Kalani Grant, not content with excelling at the usual girlie sports, has landed some big hits in the boxing world

and read the full story on page 7. The Valley Reporter would like to take this opportunity to wish her well in her future endeavours. Kelmscott Senior High School alumnus Gillian Shilling is starring in a world premiere production from Hollywood writer and director David Stevens. Directed by Mark DeFriest at the Old Mill Theatre, The Beast and The Beauty re-works the classic tale of magic and enchantment and sets it in the Australian outback of the late 1880s. Get your tickets now! Go to page 10 for booking details. Bedfordale’s Rachel Carr, aka Aye Candy, is showcasing the best of vintage glamour by entering herself in the Miss Pinup Australia competition. Valley Reporter readers have the chance to vote for Rachel’s Aye Candy on the WA page of the www. misspinupaustralia.com.au website. Read how a bit of harmless fun has changed a young man’s life forever on page 16.

The VALLEY Reporter considers its “Inbox Letters to the Editor” section to be a very important public forum. We make every effort to publish all letters, with those from persons in our readership area taking precedence. All letters to the editor must contain the writers full name, home address and daytime telephone number so the editor may contact the writer if there is a question or concern. For The VALLEY Reporter’s “Inbox Letters to the Editor” full list of guidelines go to; www.thevalleyreporter.com.au/letters.

I just wanted to thank you very much for publishing the beautiful touching story of “Goodbye Jana, from Mr Jones”. It was so incredibly heart-warming as was Dr Judith Congrene’s tribute to her beloved Amy. Dr Judith Congrene assisted my golden retriever with his passing (at my home) in 2009. This service was greatly appreciated as it avoided the very stressful return drive to the veterinary clinic and allowed my beloved Monty to pass peacefully in surroundings familiar to him. I have shared the article of Jana’s passing with many of my dog lover friends where I work and it has moved many to tears - even though heart-warming as well. I was thinking how wonderful if would be if there was a regular section in the Reporter devoted to our beloved pets (particularly given all the negative stories about dogs that have been published in the local publications recently). For those about to part with an aged or sick pet, stories like Judith’s (preparing to say goodbye) and the

one from Mike and Cyn Shord (picturing the beautiful Mr Jones saying goodbye) could be very helpful to people who are facing this forthcoming painful journey. Others wishing to share those final moments may find that it could be helpful to those having just lost a pet or those feeling the need to have a peaceful and pain free passing of their beloved companion, who in most cases is regarded as an important member of their family - hence the profound grief that can be experienced by devoted owners at this time. Cheryl Marshall. I wanted to express my thanks to some local good Samaritans who provided assistance after an incident following the recent storms that resulted in my car becoming flooded. A lot of rainwater was running off Migrant Park onto Brookton Highway and I was forced to brake suddenly due to the driver in front of me. Unfortunately I stalled the car, ended up down an embankment and the car suddenly filled with water. It has since been written off due to water damage. I would like to sincerely thank the man who stopped to check I was ok and the lady who called the tow truck driver. Verna Splatt, Roleystone Community College. The new land managers of all of Araluen Botanic Park are the Department of Environment, who have some great plans including a fantastic upgrade of the entrance area and initiatives such as encouraging the public to get to know the magnificent bushland within the park. They have already upgraded the lighting, seating and other areas within the park. I have been advised they will be releasing a more detailed explanation of their plans for the park in the near future, which I am sure you will all be very impressed with. (Note that the Araluen Botanic Park Board manages under contract the area within the park that does not contain the majority of the bushland.) A letter in our other local magazine more or less indicating there would be no real tulip celebrations this year at Araluen could not be further from the truth. In fact there have been many thousands of tulips planted by fantastic volunteers. There obviously will be a wonderful tulip display in springtime, similar to that run over the past two years. Have no doubt thousands of people will come down the valley to see the tulips. It is a ritual for many people and they will have the benefit of a well planned and magical experience. Pat Hart.

Is anyone else concerned about the war going on in Chevin Road? No, I am not talking about an invasion from aliens or terrorists, it’s those pesky cockatoos. These magnificent birds have lived in harmony with all the locals in this area until recently, but now they are not wanted. Why do people who do not like any form of wildlife come and live in Roleystone? I happen to want these birds around and do not appreciate being forced to listen to a gas operated explosive device designed to frighten birds away. Where do you want them to go? For those people who do not have an appreciation for local native wildlife and who want to continue being destructive, why not focus on the feral pigs, rabbits, cats, foxes, toads, foreign bees, or European wasps? Can I please put up a device around my property that makes a big noise every time a cat comes into my place to look for bandicoots, or when I have to breathe in toxic, foul-smelling smoke? When Mother Nature comes knocking, big bangs will not save you, nor will your rifles or big bucks. Our Premier “Colin the Conquerer” sets a very bad example to the people of Western Australia, as he is someone who will blow up, dig up, or put anything in jeopardy for the almighty dollar. Please Roleystone residents, show some respect and love towards our wildlife. If we can welcome horses, dogs, cats, sheep, cows and chickens, why not native animals? They are losing so much of their habitat and they need some help. Thank you to those people who devote their time to saving wildlife. Lorraine Wallis, Roleystone.

Amazing air show Roleystone resident Adam Quartermaine attended the Defence Force Air Show at RAAF Base, Pearce, at the end of May. Here are his impressions from the day: It’s not very often that civilians get the chance to see inside RAAF aircraft so the Air Show was a great opportunity to do this. The largest aircraft on display was the C17 Globemaster, used for transporting helicopters, tanks, jet fighters and other infantry vehicles. It can carry up to 134 troops. Last year Globemasters were used to air lift supplies to areas affected by flooding caused by cyclone Yasi. It was really amazing to see the inside of the C17 Globemaster and gain an understanding of the sheer size of the plane. It can carry around 72,500kg. I met the pilot and asked him how good the visibility was from the cockpit. He told me that having extra windows near your feet was good, especially as the plane was often flown at low altitudes. He also said it was funny seeing the look on the cows’ faces as he

be active go paddling Canoeing Western Australia offers a full experience of paddle sports, aiming to engage people that love being around water and love being fit and active. Paddling is one of the fastest growing sports in WA and is quickly becoming a popular alternative to traditional weightbearing activities; the perfect choice for those suffering lower limb injuries as it is a low-impact activity. Paddlesports offers many styles of activity in various local clubs in WA that are suited

flew low over paddocks! Later in the afternoon the second Cl7 on the base did a display flight. For such a large plane it looked surprisingly graceful. It flew very low overhead and although it has a cruising speed of 800kph and has four turbo fans, it managed to run on two, allowing it to pass very slowly for the display. Another thing I found interesting was its ability to pull up in a short distance on landing. Australia has currently got 5 C17 Globemasters, with a sixth on its way. At the Air Show I would say this was one of the most impressive aircraft on display. Other military air craft at the show included the F/A-18 A/B Classic Hornet, F/A-18 F Super Hornet, C-130 Hercules, CL-604 Challenger, Wedgetail AEW&C, KC30A Multi Role Tanker Transport, AP-3C Orion, PC-9/A, Hawk 127, The Roulettes (comprising seven PC-9/A aircraft), RAAF Balloon and Navy Seahawk. Adam Quartermaine, Roleystone. Ref: www.airforce.gov.au/index.aspx. to individuals’ preferences: from canoe polo to ocean paddling, slalom to sprint racing. Canoeing Western Australia is proudly supporting Guppy Paddling which is a program for kids aged 7-12 (primary school) to get started in a kayak as an afterschool alternative to other mainstream sports. Western Australia boasts the fastest men and women canoe-kayak paddlers in the country, with Olympic medallists often amongst the groups on the rivers of Perth. If you want to get fit and be close to the natural environment whilst interacting in a community of active and inspirational individuals from ages 8-80 years, then paddling is for you.

At the request of Canning MHR Don Randall, the Shadow Minister for Small Business, Competition Policy and Consumer Affairs, Bruce Billson, visited Roleystone to talk with local small business people. The meeting took place over a business breakfast at the scenic Roley’s on the Ridge last Thursday, June 7. Mr Randall said the Shadow Minister brought a wealth of knowledge to the forum. “Bruce has a Masters Degree in Business Leadership and has worked in local, state and federal government for many years, in both advisory and ministerial roles,” Mr Randall said. “He is also a family business owner himself and focuses on how to boost small business in outer-metropolitan areas, such as those found in my electorate of Canning.” Mr Billson outlined at least a dozen initiatives the Coalition would implement to “put the business back into small business”. The measures included rescinding the carbon tax, improving small business access to Commonwealth contracts, cutting $1 billion of red-tape costs, making sure there

was a Small Business Minister in Cabinet, and giving small business a say in taxation. “The Board of Taxation has no-one from small business on it – yet the tax office has an impact on all our small businesses everywhere,” Mr Billson said. He also discussed how the carbon tax was lowering consumer confidence, and that a small business loan was 14 times more likely to default than a housing loan. “It (carbon tax) is 18 times the size of the European model – and Europe’s got 22 times the number of people to pay for it. That works out at $1 per European. Ours is $400 per Australian,” he said. “Right now, so unsettled are Australian families and businesses, they are saving – they are doing what the Government should be doing. It’s called economic cocooning. “Small businesses are in every community. We’ve got to make sure they’ve got half a chance.” Bruce Billson MHR (centre) discusses local small business practices with Roleystone IGA owner Ross Anile (left) and Illawarra Orchards owner Tom Price (right).

The Western Australian Environment Awards acknowledge, reward and recognise the businesses, government agencies, community groups and individuals who make a valuable contribution to protecting and conserving the State’s natural environment. The Awards program has been very successful during the past decade in providing recognition to those organisations, community groups and individuals who are setting new benchmarks in environmental care and conservation. In 2011, the awards attracted entries from individuals and community groups with small, local initiatives through to government departments, small business and large corporations. Entries were received from as far north as Kununurra to Esperance on the State’s south-coast. Individuals, community groups, corporate/ business and government (State and local) can choose to highlight their environmental

initiatives through the following categories in 2012; Corporate Business Leading by Example, Government Leading by Example, Small Business Leading by Example, Biodiversity Conservation, Bush, Land and Waterways, Resource and Waste Management, Environmental Education and Communication, Sustainability, Rivers, Estuaries and Wetland Environments, Community Achievement – Regional and Metropolitan. The 2012 awards will open for nominations on June 5 and close in late July. All judging will occur in August/ September and finalists will be announced in late September early October. Judging is conducted by recognised industry experts in each of the category fields along with sponsors. Award winners will be announced at a presentation dinner to be held on 9 November 2012.

Roleystone Matriarch Scores another Milestone

Local Grandmother and Great Grandmother, Marjorie Gibbons was very excited to celebrate her youngest grandson’s 50th game milestone with the Roleystone Junior Football club recently. Luca Sallur is the youngest of Marjorie’s 8 grandsons, and she has been there over many years to see all the boys run through a lot of banners, celebrating 50, 100 and 150 games and been there to watch all the footy action on the field. She has lost count of how many games she has seen. Hundreds no doubt!

Marjorie is a sporting granny as she has also watched most of her 4 granddaughters netball and basketball games at the Ray Owen centre in Lesmurdie. She has been cheering and supporting the girls for as long as she can remember! Weekends are very busy, as she has to make time to get to Subi, or the couch, to watch her beloved Eagles notch up another win. With Will Carrigan in the Y13’s, Luca in the Y12’s for the Tigers, and Sophie Sallur playing basketball with the Roleystone Basketball Club, there will be plenty more banners and games to celebrate.

Want to start walking? Local resident Pam Bailey is interested in establishing a Roleystone walking group. Pam’s goal is to be active while making some new friends who live in the area. “I’m not expecting people to be super fit or walk a marathon, just come along for a comfortable walk for about 45 minutes to an hour, with like-minded people,” she said. People of all ages are welcome. Register your interest by contacting Pam Bailey on 0409 989 260 or email bayls@aapt.net.au.

Cancer fight – get behind the Stone family You may have seen recent media reports of a Perth toddler suffering from a rare cancer being taken to the US for specialised treatment expected to cost his family about $250,000. Two-year-old Jayden Stone is the son of Roleystone-born and raised Danny Chambers now Danny Stone - and his wife Leisl. Little Jayden is extremely sick with an aggressive cancer known as atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumour. Tragically, very little is known about the disease. It affects three in a million children in the US and sufferers have just a 10 per cent chance of survival. The Stone family, including brother Luke and sister Layla, have been in Chicago for several weeks now, with Jayden undergoing proton beam radiation therapy – this treatment is not available in Australia, but is believed to target cancerous tissue more precisely than standard radiation therapy and reduce adverse effects, especially in children. Mum Leisl has been writing a daily blog, revealing the emotional and exhausting battle both Jayden and his family have been enduring. Roleystone resident Darryl Kipping contacted The Valley Reporter about the Stone family’s plight and urged the local community to “get behind them”. You can do that by reading Leisl’s blog at www. jaydenstonesjourney.blogspot.com.au or by making a donation: Bank: NAB. BSB: 086426. Acct No: 489274217. Acct Name: Stone.

Kanyana Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre hospital manager Margaret Robinson said it was crucial that authorities knew about the state of the bandicoot population. She said there had been examples in the past where numbers of a native species, such as the woylie, had declined dramatically. Anyone who sees one of the animals should call 9442 1203.

Bushcare and Environmental Working Group and Custodians, the following information has been received from The Department of Environment and Conservation who are conducting a survey based on bandicoot numbers in Perth. WA’s main environmental agency has launched a survey to track the number of bandicoots living in Perth amid questions over whether the city’s growth is reducing their population. The Department of Environment and Conservation is staging the survey in conjunction with World Wildlife FundAustralia as part of moves to protect the marsupial. DEC Swan region ecologist Geoff Barrett said bandicoots, or quendas, had once been prevalent across many parts of Australia but their numbers were thought to be rapidly declining. Cats were an acute threat to the animals, while urban encroachment was also a significant problem. WWF species conservation manager Katherine Howard said the survey would compare

Kelmscott Senior High School alumnus Gillian Shilling is starring in a world premiere from Hollywood writer and director David Stevens this June. Best known for The Sum of Us, A Town Like Alice and Breaker Morant, Stevens’ new work is described as a “love story reinvented”. Directed by Mark DeFriest at the Old Mill Theatre, The Beast and The Beauty re-works the classic tale of magic and enchantment and sets it in the Australian outback of the late 1880s. The so-called beast is Tom, a man of the land who was horribly disfigured in a bushfire as a baby. Shilling plays Irene, who runs the local town’s general store with her husband. “Irene loves and respects her husband, and the decisions he makes, especially when he helped save Tom as a baby,” she said. “She can be quite prudish but has a soft spot for Tom and makes allowances for many of his vices.” First performing with Roleystone Theatre seven years ago in the pantomime Mother Goose, Shilling has also appeared in Tea House of the August Moon, Alice in Wonderland and Class of 77, also working on several short films, commercials and corporate videos. “I loved the script for The Beast and The Beauty and was keen to audition for Irene,” she said. “It’s been a while since I’ve been in a play and wanted to do justice to a smaller role.

“I was also keen to work with the director Mark DeFriest.” DeFriest is a veteran of more than 800 hours of television drama in the US and Australia with credits including Cop Shop, The Sullivans, Prisoner, The Flying Doctors, Chances, Ocean Girl, Ship To Shore, Streetsmartz and the Doctor Who spin-off K-9, among many others. “The Beast and Beauty removes the mythical aspects from the original tale,” DeFriest said. “It ponders the question: if the beast always remains the beast, will love still conquer all? “This is a story of an Aussie bloke, trying to make a go of it, despite what the nightmare of bushfire has done to him. “The main character, Tom, grows up isolated on the family station he inherited – until a new housekeeper grows to understand him, unlike her predecessors.” Playwright David Stevens said Australia had few fables and fairy stories but he always wanted to write one. “I started to think of the legend of Beauty and The Beast but without the transformation,” he said. “It’s always seemed odd that Belle falls in love with the beast but he is transformed into the world’s most handsome man. My attitude is ‘Who’s this drongo, where’s my beast?’ “I wondered how the legend could be changed to Australia and it wasn’t a big jump from there to bushfire.” The Beast and The Beauty plays at 8pm, June 22, 23, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, July 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, 11, 12, 13 and 14 with 2pm matinees July 1 and 8.

As school holidays approach in July, families may be considering some time away from home, which may require putting their pets into kennels or catteries for boarding. It is amazing how quickly the year passes and it’s easy to forget to maintain the vaccination boosters which are required before a pet can be admitted to boarding facilities. Some veterinary clinics also need vaccination certificates to show that patients to be admitted to hospital have been fully vaccinated before they are accepted. Having pets vaccinated at home is an easy process, with minimal disruption to the pet’s normal routine and more convenience for the owner, especially for people who don’t drive, have numerous pets to have vaccinated, or ones that suffer from travel sickness. Parents with young children are particularly

grateful that they don’t need to take the children and their pets along to the vet clinic. For cats and dogs, a multiple vaccination which covers five diseases in one injection is recommended. A thorough health check of the animal is done prior to the vaccination and this is useful to maintain a good level of veterinary care before problems develop. A vaccination consultation is also a valuable time to review current medications and their effectiveness, or to discuss concerns about preventative health such as de-worming and flea treatments. If you would like an appointment for your pet in the comfort of your own home, please call or text Dr Judith Congrene from Pet Assist 332 Home Vet Services on 0433 2137 28.

A new project named “Canning Pools” is being undertaken by the Swan River Trust in partnership with the Armadale Gosnells Landcare Group and SERCUL. The aim of this long term project is to “identify and protect critical habitat pools to secure freshwater fauna in the Canning River for the future”. This project will be completed in stages, with the first section being

undertaken from the Canning Dam wall down to where Stony Brook enters the Canning. The initial study is to build an understanding of the physical and biophysical attributes of the pools in order to prioritise them and their sustainability. The next step is to develop management strategies for each of the priority Canning River pools. Pat Hart.

ROLEYSTONE SENIORS HOUSING COMMITTEE TO CONTINUE The Roleystone Seniors Housing Committee will continue to exist until the seniors housing development in Robin Road is completed. The committee at its last meeting agreed it was important to maintain its role during the various stages the site has to go through before any development occurs. The committee wishes to acknowledge and thank Kelvin Oliver, a town planner and local resident, who has been part of our committee and has given freely of his time, knowledge and experience. Kelvin will continue in this role for us.

We would also like to acknowledge committee member Trudi Hodges, CEO of Dale Cottages, who assisted us greatly with our questionnaire. A special thanks also to our local member, Tony Simpson, who assisted us with printing and mail-outs of the questionnaire. We will continue to keep the community informed, but everyone needs to understand that the process involved will be a lengthy one. The best thing though is that we have got through the first stage and we are on our way. Pat Hart, Chair.

Roleystone Community College Aiming High With a wonderful bushland setting, engaging specialist programs and guidance from its forward-thinking Council, Roleystone Community College is fast establishing itself as the school of choice in the Perth Hills. The Valley Reporter recently attended the College’s Open Night Expo to see some of the outstanding projects and activities underway. The Expo followed another memorable College event, the Grow Project’s Food Revolution Day. Sean Hamilton, chairperson of the RCC Council, described the College as the envy of other regional community schools. “Roleystone Community College is moving forward in a purposeful, strategic and collaborative manner,” Dr Hamilton said. “We are successfully attracting students with our specialist programs in Indonesian studies, Film and Television, sustainable waterwise garden and DEC Bush Rangers. “However, for the College to expand beyond Year 10, the RCC Council is

very aware that the school has not only got to have the core number of required students, but also the full support of the community. “I would encourage anyone living in our region to visit the College and see first-hand what it has to offer students.” The vision of Roleystone Community College, according to its school ethos, is to “build a college that is guided by research, study, values, discipline, innovation and excellence. “Our purpose is to ensure that we have a distinctive institution where students want to learn and are encouraged to develop their special talents and career goals. “It is a College where students can build their character and selfdiscipline so that they can contribute to their school community and wider society.” RCC is an integral part of the Roleystone community and surrounding areas. It is aiming for success, innovation and excellence in every sense.

At the recent RCC Open Night Expo Aquaponics WA representative Maurice Van Aurich was on hand in the sustainable waterwise garden along with Helen Cotter and Ed Blaker to talk about growing your own fish and vegetables at home. Maurice briefly explained to a small group of parents the many benefits of aquaponics: • Reduced water use. only about 10% of the water required for traditional gardening or aquaculture; • Reduced or only soft/natural chemical use; • Little or no pests when set up in a controlled environment; • No back breaking digging in messy, dirty soil; • No soil borne diseases and virtually no weeds; • Can produce fish and plants all year round. With the overwhelming popularity of the sustainable garden, I’m sure further talks like this will be organised in the future, so watch this space.

Rachel says: “With classic curves and the confidence to use them I’m excited, thrilled and proud to be part of Miss Pinup. I’m inspired by Bettie Page and classic bomber art of WW2 ; I love to belly dance and go-go and I’m also into burlesque, Steampunk and alternative fashion - especially if it sparkles or laces up.” The Miss Pinup Australia winners won’t be decided until 2013, which gives readers plenty of time to vote for Rachel’s Aye Candy on the WA page of the www. misspinupaustralia.com.au website.

Dad-to-be Jake Howe turns 21 It was the kind of 21st birthday Jake Howe never expected to have. Released from Shenton Park rehabilitation centre for the June 4 celebration, wheelchair-bound Jake spent the day quietly in Roleystone with his family, girlfriend Jessica Morgan and a few friends. Only a few months ago the lively young carpenter was looking forward to buying a new home with Jessica, who is pregnant with their first child. Then his life changed in an instant. Wrestling with a mate on the Barrack Street jetty after a party in March, Jake’s body flipped and he landed on his head. The shocking result of a bit of high-spirited fun was a broken bone in Jake’s neck that crushed his spinal cord and left him paralysed from the armpits down. Mum Carol Howe paid tribute to her son, saying he was “remarkable – a lot of the time he has kept us going, not the other way around. “I would do anything to turn time back, it is has been hard for all of us.” Jake will be a fulltime resident at the rehabilitation centre until late July or early August, just prior to the birth of his child. Carol Howe said the recent removal of a collar

from Jake’s neck would allow him to do far more active physiotherapy and hopefully advance his recovery. “He has made some progress, but he is still numb from the armpits down and although he has some wrist movement there is no hand dexterity yet.” Jake’s employer, Des Milne from Grand Carpentry, has organised a large fundraising event to be held at Gloucester Park on Saturday July 14, with about 700 people expected to attend. And unlike his low-key 21st birthday, there will be a big party in Roleystone when Jake finally comes home.

Dear Parents/Caregivers, Through the funding that we have received under the Language Hub program, we are able to offer an exciting opportunity for a select group of students from Armadale Primary School, Kingsley Primary School and Roleystone Community College to attend an academic extension course in Indonesian for 2012. This opportunity is funded by the National Asian Language and Studies in Schools Program. Selected students from Year 6, along with Year 6 and 7 students from the other schools, will be involved in a broad range of extended learning activities in Indonesian language and culture throughout the year. They will be using technologies such as iPods and laptops in many activities, especially to communicate with other students in Australia and Indonesia, using the Indonesian language. The class size will be limited to a maximum of 18, enabling these students to gain confidence in conversing in Indonesian. Students will need to be motivated learners with a good work ethic and an interest in language learning. A variety of topics will be covered throughout the year, and a term planner will be provided at the commencement of each new term. Students, parents and schools principals will receive a formal assessment at the end of each semester. The classes will be held from 8:40am to 10:15am each Monday morning at Roleystone Community College. Please take some time to discuss this opportunity with your child and his/her teachers. If you would like any further information, or would like to make your expression of interest, please contact me at Roleystone Community College on 9391 6222 or at karenwishart@education.wa.edu.au. Yours faithfully, Karen Wishart, RCC Language Teacher (Indonesian). www.roleystonecc.education.wa.edu.au.

A few fast facts about Roleystone Community College’s Founding Principal, Peter Thatcher: Born in the Melbourne suburb of Collingwood, Peter grew up with his three brothers playing plenty of sport. His father was the District Superintendent of the Melbourne Metropolitan Fire Brigade for 45 years and young Peter and his mates were “always in trouble” playing with the water, hoses and sliding down the fireman’s pole! After attending Melbourne Boys High School, Peter completed a Bachelor of Business (Marketing/Finance) at Monash University and later, a Bachelor of Education (Physical Education) at Edith Cowan University and a Masters Degree in Education at the University of Western Australia. With a self-confessed love of all sports, competition and coaching, Peter has represented both Victoria and Western Australia at junior and/or senior level in Australian Rules football, kayaking, rowing, cross-country running and boxing.

Library budget boost paves way for more guide dogs • State Government commits more than $2million to Association for the Blind • Three-year funding supports improved access to library texts The Association for the Blind of Western Australia can now spend more on guide dogs, after a State Government pledge of more than $2million to the association’s library program. The 2012-13 State Budget commitment will provide the association’s accessible information unit with $698,000 a year Helen Morton for three years, to produce texts in accessible formats. Minister for Mental Health; Disability Services Minister Helen Morton made the Disability Services announcement at a recent guide dog graduation ceremony. “The accessible information service allows people to search an online catalogue of more than 60,000 book titles and download or request texts,” Mrs Morton said. “The digital books can be played on any mainstream MP3 player, including iPods, mobile phones and personal digital assistants. For people without access to the internet, texts are supplied on special re-usable USB cartridges via mail.” The service also provides accessible format conversion (to digital, audio and Braille) to individuals, Government, businesses, educational institutions and the community. “Its potential for social benefit has been recognised through a 2011 Premier’s Social Innovation Grant, which is helping the Association for the Blind develop an online accessible format conversion tool,” the Minister said.

Bargains aplenty at City’s Drop ’n’ Shop

9497 1596

Bikes and lawn mowers? Plastic containers and toys? Corrugated metal and tools? The City of Armadale’s Drop ‘n’ Shop Reuse Centre has all of these second-hand items at cheap prices – and you can help the environment too! The City is committed to recycling as much discarded material as possible and by the Drop ‘n’ Shop (located at the Armadale Landfill and Recycling Facility in Hopkinson Road, Hilbert) turns unwanted household articles into bargain buys for the general public. The way it works is simple: At no cost, City of Armadale residents can bring a wide range of unwanted goods to the shop, including furniture, kitchenware, garden items, bric-a-brac, building materials, equipment, tools, bikes, toys, books and clothing. The goods are sorted; some are cleaned and repaired, or valueadded, then they are sold at inexpensive prices. “The Drop ‘n’ Shop is fantastic news for handymen and women, shoppers looking for a bargain and people interested in sustainable, environmentally-friendly recycling practices,” said Armadale Mayor Henry Zelones. “When members of the community snap up a great buy at our Drop ‘n’ Shop they are preventing waste being turned into landfill. “Some materials like corrugated sheeting, for making raised garden

beds, can be bought for a fraction of the price when new. “There are lots of plastic toys at the shop that cannot be recycled, but they can easily be reused, so that’s good news for parents. “I urge any community member who hasn’t been out to the Drop ‘n’ Shop to visit in the near future and grab a bargain” said Mayor Zelones. The only items not accepted at the Drop ‘n’ Shop are tyres, mattresses, computers and carpet. Funds generated from Drop ‘n’ Shop sales go towards the running of the centre and for community programs encouraging recycling and sustainable living. The centre, in conjunction with the Switch Your Thinking! Team, is currently running a Young Reinventors competition, in which students use Drop ‘n’ Shop items to create great “re-inventions”. The Drop ‘n’ Shop is open Thursday 10am – 2pm, Friday and Saturday 8.30am - 4pm and Sunday 8.30am – 4pm. Contact 9399 6462. Armadale Landfill & Recycling Facility is on Hopkinson Road, Hilbert (formerly Brookdale).


roleystone SENIOR football club Percentage – boosting win

For All Aspects Of Plumbing and Gas Contact Andy

Roleystone’s recent massive victory over the Cockburn Cobras, 31.19 (205) to 10.11 (71), in the first encounter between the two clubs at Cross 31 19 205 Park had supporters asking if this in fact was a record score by the 10 11 71 club. Bob Stevens, who over the life of the Tigers has maintained a data base on various facts involving the club, was quick to let Tigers fans know that the score sits in sixth place behind the team’s highest-ever score of 40.24 recorded on 2nd June 2007. On that Saturday afternoon, the game was contested at Hillcrest Oval, the home of the Bayswater club, which was restricted to 6.02 (38) by the rampaging Tigers. At Cross Park, the Cobras struggled to hold Roleystone’s Brendon Abbott, who registered 11 goals from various positions in the forward half. The 11 goals was also a long way short of the goal-kicking record for the Tigers, which sits at 17 and was kicked by current club President Jason Hammond against Murdoch back in the late 1990’s. To be fair to the Cobras, they were without a number of key players on the day and the Tigers were able to produce some of their best football for season 2012. In the matches ahead the Tigers will be fighting to qualify for a finals berth with a number of other teams, so all percentage-boosting wins will go a long way to deciding positions on the premiership ladder by the end of the season.

DEMAND and supply still moving in the RIGHT DIRECTION

STOCK NUMBERS REDUCING Stock numbers of listings for sale in the Perth Metro area are still reducing with total stock now down to 12,896 (from record highs of 18,023 in April 2011). Of the 12,896, only 61% is established homes which is a historically low portion of total listings for sale.

Fraser Williams...

Unprecedented sales in Roleystone

These lower stock levels of established homes will ultimately increase the percentage of sales transactions and improve the marketplace as supply and demand levels move closer to parity. The recent further 0.25% RBA interest rate reduction will continue to support this favourable trend. INTEREST RATE REVOLUTION There are 2.5 million households in Australia with variable interest rate loans. The recent cash rate reductions have reduced variable loan repayments by an average of $140.00 per month per household – that equates to an extra $350 million per month that is either being paid into variable loans to reduce debt levels or being spent in the economy.

Why compromise, it’s your call... 0439 092 248 9397 6300 Fraser Williams - Property

giant chess set

Good Shepherd Catholic Primary School students have been using the School’s new giant chess set. Students have been bringing the giant chess set out every lunch time to play with it and once lunch time is over the school’s prefects pack it away. Because all of the students have been playing with it, their problem solving skills are developing and because of this we will be having a chess tournament. Students will be able sign up for the tournament which will be run by the Year Six Library Leadership team. The library group will run the tournament, letting each student that signed up play a game and maybe win the tournament! Pictured: Quinton, Hannah and Patrick Year Six students.

Service at its Best

11 Wygonda Rd, Roleystone (United Service Station) Eddie Worsnop Servicing Roleystone Since 1999

The last two weeks at Good Shepherd Catholic Primary School have been a time of great celebration. The students in Year Six received the sacrament of Confirmation on Sunday, 27th May. They were blessed by receiving the gifts of the Holy Spirit into their lives. Year Four made their First Holy Communion on Sunday, 10 June and for the first time they shared the bread and wine of Jesus Christ. The students and their teachers have been preparing for these important occasions at school and the families of the students are thanked for supporting and guiding the students through these important milestones. The celebrations of the Sacraments are supported by the whole school community at Good Shepherd. Students in Years Four, Five and Six willingly shared their time on the two occasions to come along and sing in the choirs at the Masses. The choirs were supported by two past students. Emma Oorschot (Head Girl 2008) performed as a vocal soloist and Georgia Wells (Head Girl 2010) performed as a Flute soloist. Having our past students come along and share their talents helped to make the occasions very special and highlighted the warm sense of community that is unique to Good Shepherd. The students shared a special cake together at school as part of the sacramental celebration.

Roleystone Karate’s Awesome Foursome Make State Team

Given the consistent success of Roleystone’s Kofukan Karate students at local novice and major state tournaments, it was only a matter of time before they achieved recognition at an elite level. After competing in the AKF State Karate Championships on Sunday 20th May, four of Kofukan’s best have been selected for the WA State Team to compete at the Australian National Championships in Melbourne this August. Kaitlin Brindley, Brooke Williams, Gabby Purser and Cameron Carling have all been training extremely hard and have earned the opportunity to represent WA. Congratulations are also due to Roleystone’s Kate McWalter, who competed at the State Karate Championships as well. She picked up first place in the Female Veteran kumite with an inspiring display of skill and courage. (Kate chose not to nominate for the WA State Team selection due to an impending luxury holiday!!) Sensei Darren considers that the team’s well deserved selection is testament to their skill, ability and dedication to the sport of karate. He says of the crew, ‘They are a fantastic bunch and you couldn’t ask for better role models for junior and senior students alike. I am very honoured to be able to call them my students’. The whole club, both Nationally and Internationally, is behind our very own Awesome Foursome. Good luck guys!!

advertorial

Radio dog fence – how it works How can a radio signal keep a dog safe, protect gardens and allow you to have a fence that looks great, but won’t let your dog through to create havoc in the neighbourhood? Sometimes traditional fencing may not be enough to stop a determined and sneaky dog. What is the Radio Dog Fence difference? This kind of barrier is created using a ‘radio wire’ that runs around the area you want the dog to either be enclosed in or kept away from. The wire is actually the aerial from the radio transmitter. The transmitter lives inside a shed or garage and is powered from a normal power point via a small transformer. When the aerial/wire comes back to the transmitter the radio signal has nowhere to go and it has to expand outwards. So, by turning up the range control on the transmitter, you are putting out more radio signal to keep the dog further away from the fence. The special radio collar the dog wears gives the dog a ‘correction’ in the form of a static pulse if it goes too close to the fence or gateway. This stimulation from the collar is the deterrent to the dog, but it has to be the dog’s decision to stay away after it is trained to achieve success using this kind of system! Be aware that Radio Dog Fences can cause interference with radio signals inside your house and can also be interfered with by other radio signals. This can mean the dog could either escape or receive ‘false corrections’ from stray radio signals. Each property and dog is different so look for reliability and flexibility in a radio dog fence (including surge protection for the transmitter and a warranty). Colin Seal from The Dog Line has over 10 years experience in helping people with dog problems. The Dog Line can be contacted on 1300 THE DOG (1300 843 364). http://www.thedogline.com.au.

Much Ado About Nothing July 20th, 21st, 25th, 27th, 28th at 8pm Joy abounds in Messina as Don Pedro, the Prince of Aragon, celebrates victory over his bastard brother. Amidst the celebrations those around the prince have a number of tricky situations to navigate. There are two pairs of lovers, Benedick and Beatrice; Claudio and Hero. Benedick and Beatrice are engaged in a very “merry” war, they both talk a mile a minute and proclaim their scorn for love, marriage and each other. In contrast, Claudio and Hero are sweet young people who are rendered

Director: Paul Treasure

practically speechless by their love for each other. Questions abound in this comedic romp: Will the young soldier, Claudio, marry the Governor’s daughter? Will Beatrice and Benedick overcome their quick wit and even quicker tongues to realise that they are perfect for each other? And what terrible mischief is Don John planning?
