OH WHAT A FEELING ADVENTURER Heather Lawson could be the first deaf-blind person in Australia to go scuba diving. The 54-year-old has also skydived and bungeejumped, climbed rocks and the Sydney Harbour Bridge, flown in a hot air balloon and skied over snow and water. Now she can tick another adrenaline rush off her list, as she dived off Ricketts Point with VicDeaf volunteer Bill Hynes and aide Marie Hunter last week.  REPORT PAGE 5

329 Bay Road,

eaumaris is a beautiful place to live. Its beach and foreshore is rare, being so close to a capital city, so inevitably more people will want to live here. We can’t ‘‘pull up the drawbridge’’ even if we wanted too. The main issue is, are we prepared to lose what attracted us here in the first place – the natural, treed beauty? Beaumaris Conservation Society believes that is worth fighting for and would like residents who feel similarly to join us in the fight. The society has about 200 members, though many are longtime residents and past active involvement. However, more recently there has been an increase in younger members passionate enough about Beaumaris to get involved. I joined in 2002 and in my time, saving the Concourse Green from becoming a car park and a skateboard ramp was pretty big. We have the occasional victory at the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal when our objection to a planning application is upheld. Our most disappointing loss would have to be the Beach Road bay trail extension from Cromer Road to Charman Road, being built now. Eighty-five trees, understorey vegetation and soil have been removed to make way for a concrete road on a section of Bayside’s foreshore – an area unlike any other in that it was virtually in a pristine state without car parks and other human interventions. We believed there was a better way, and won support for it at local, state and federal government levels.

PROFILE RON MORRIS, 66 WHAT I LOVE ABOUT BEAUMARIS: Its beaches and foreshore, remnant heathland reserves and the friendly village feel of my local shopping centre. WHAT I WOULD CHANGE: The apparent desire of developers to build as many apartments as possible, as cheaply as possible, on land for single occupancy.

But VicRoads support was necessary to succeed and that was not forthcoming. Our next potential big fight, which we hope won’t happen, will be the Beaumaris Motor Yacht Squadron marina proposal. We are prepared to fight to

prevent a further significant area of public property being locked up for the recreational pursuits of a small number of people, particularly when it will involve 550 metres of rock wall and an 88-metre-high boat storage facility. Aside from the sheer ugliness of

the result, the deleterious effect on marine ecology and worldrenowned fossil sites would probably be unparalleled at any other marina installation on Port Phillip Bay. We hope the proposal will ‘‘die in the water’’.

Police alert on indecent acts

Basketball cries foul on court hire bfitzgerald@mmpgroup.com.au

THE Southern Basketball Association faces a $100,000 annual bill to hire extra courts as its own facilities struggle to cope with booming player numbers. The association secured a deal last month to lease courts at a new Parkdale sport centre, the fourth facility to be used by the club outside its home courts in Tulip Street, Sandringham. Association chief executive Vince Crivelli said the club had more than outgrown its four-court home stadium. “We need at least double the amount of space,” he said. “We’re already using 10 courts.” Southern Basketball Association competition teams play at Tulip Street, Mentone Grammar, Mentone Girls’ Grammar and Cheltenham Secondary College. The association is made up of 600 domestic teams and 35 Sand-

ringham Sabres representative teams. The Parkdale courts being leased are part of the Parkdale Hub, an $8.175 million arts and sports precinct at Parkdale Secondary College that is managed by Mordialloc Community Centre. Mordialloc Community Centre manager Rebecca Harvison said the association would be allowed a “small degree” of use. Mr Crivelli said basketball suffered from insufficient facilities. “I think we’d shine, though, as the most in participation and the most under-resourced,” he said. The association has been seeking funding for resources from Bayside council for years. Bayside’s director of community services, Kaylene Conrick, said the council was spending $270,000 this year to improve the floor at the Tulip Street facility. Ms Conrick said the council was also working on a ‘‘strategic review of stadium need’’.

NO MORE ROOM: Southern Basketball Association chief Vince Crivelli

POLICE are seeking witnesses following an incident in Highett last week in which a youth exposed himself in front of a teenage girl. It is the third reported case of indecent exposure in the presence of a child in the area in three weeks. Bayside police said there did not seem to be any links between the incidents. In the latest, a girl, 14, was walking her dog along Bluff Road about 11.30am on March 2 when a young man approached her. As he was passing her, he indecently exposed himself to her. The offender is described as being about 16, Caucasian, with a short, solid build and fair hair. He was wearing an orange hooded jumper, blue shorts and runners. Anyone with information should contact Glen Eira Bayside Criminal Investigation Unit on 8530 5100 or Moorabbin Sexual Offences and Child Abuse Investigation Team on 9556 6565. BRIDGET FITZGERALD

VOX POP DO YOU THINK THE MAYOR IS WORTH HIS $69,325 ANNUAL ALLOWANCE? PAUL NORTON, Brighton East I guess he is, yeah. It’s a hard job. It’s not really much for being a mayor.

GLENN BATES, Port Melbourne I would have thought that was fair, if not a bit under remuneration for the mayor position.

FAY SHEPARD, East Brighton I guess so. They are out a lot doing things. Whether what they do is of great importance... the thing is they do dedicate a lot of time to it.

Ratepayer queries councillors’ pay

BY HARBANT GILL

BEN DILGER

BAYSIDE councillors’ allowances should be linked to performance and not paid in advance, a review into councillor and mayoral pay has been told. Brighton resident Kevin Spencer was the only ratepayer requesting to be heard on the issue before a special meeting of councillors on March 6. At their December 18 meeting, councillors voted to pay themselves the proposed maximum annual allowance permitted for a council of Bayside’s size – $69,325 for the mayor and $22,405 for councillors. Councillors are paid monthly in advance and the mayor twice monthly in advance. All municipalities are required to review councillor allowances by June 30. Mr Spencer said that as a longtime resident and ratepayer he was disgusted that citizens were ‘‘being fleeced of their savings and rate money by exorbitant unnecessary costs and spending by the council’’. He suggested a performance review to ascertain whether councillors deserved the payment.

MARCH 13, 2013

THE big break has arrived for Black Rock actor Frederick James Koch, who flew to Los Angeles this week for the premiere of the big-budget A Common Man, in which he is the supporting actor to Hollywood heavyweight Ben Kingsley. Koch will tread the red carpet at the Beverly Hills Hotel alongside Kingsley, his childhood hero, and Ben Cross of Chariots of Fire, to herald the film about an ordinary man who holds a city hostage. In his Hollywood debut, Koch plays a tough cop called Ranjan, who struggles to save the city from the bombs that Kingsley’s character has planted in secret locations. “All this is very surreal,’’ said Koch before leaving Australia. ‘‘My father forced me to watch the film Gandhi as a kid and I thought it was so powerful and that Ben was something to aspire to. ‘‘Now I’m acting with this amazing professional, who needs the absolute minimum to get into character. He’s a great inspiration.’’

Fate had a lot to do with how Koch, 32, a graduate of the Australian Film Television and Radio School, landed the role. He was on holiday in Sri Lanka with his entertainer father, Alston, when they ran into director Chandran Rutnam at a hotel. They ended up having drinks and Koch showed the director his portfolio of short films and commercials, including the short film Silver Bullet, ‘‘something my mates and I put together for Tropfest a few years ago’’. “Three days later, the director phoned and said ‘I can see you playing a role in my film’,’’ Koch said. Koch is also studying scriptwriting. He hopes the film, which was shot in 2011, will do for him what Avatar did for Australian actor Sam Worthington. “I have more of an opportunity now to prove myself in the acting field,’’ he said. “Now is the right time for me. There are a lot of skills you need to build up. If you rise too quickly, you burn out. I’m ready now.’’

SHE WAS SO MUCH MORE IN TUNE WITH A WHOLE LOT OF STUFF GOING ON THAN THE REST OF US

The dive took months of planning and took place because of Mr Letch’s training in disability diving in the US. He and fellow volunteers helped people with paraplegia, quadriplegia and cerebral palsy dive. ‘‘Our Mobi chair, donated by Hampton Rotary, has had quite a workout this summer,’’ Mr Letch said. The elongated tricycle has thick wheels and carries people directly into the water. ‘‘You know you’ve done something right when you look up from the water and see nine empty wheelchairs on the shore – they’re [occupants] all in the water. Now that’s an incredible feeling,’’ he said.

RIDING HIGH Firbank students will forgo lifts to school and take to the streets by bike, scooter, skateboard and foot on March 22 for the seventh national Ride2School day. The Brighton school has participated in Ride2School for the past five years. Firbank sustainability co-ordinator Kerrie Maddern said the day promoted health, fitness and independence, and was good for the environment. More than 140,000students in Australia are expected to take part in the event, which is co-ordinated by Bicycle Network. Details: ride2school.com.au.

ALMOST 50 apartments are planned for the historic Hotel Beaumaris, which will be partially restored to its 1880s grandeur if the project wins approval. Eight more apartments and four townhouses in separate new buildings, 93 basement car spaces, a restaurant with liquor licence and two shops along Beach Road are also proposed for the site. Opened in 1889 as the Great Southern Hotel, it was renamed Hotel Beaumaris in the 1920s. Twenty-seven residents objected to the proposal on grounds of bulk, car parking, overshadowing and traffic issues and noise and pollution during construction. Overshadowing issues were resolved following a meeting between developer SJB Planning, the Bayside council and objectors last November. Council officers have recommended the project go ahead because it would enhance the site’s heritage and provide much-needed housing in a sought-after area. Councillors are expected to vote on the propoosal this week. TERESA MURPHY STEPHEN MCKENZIE

HEATHER Lawson is possibly the first blind-deaf person in Australia to go scuba diving, and one of only a few in the world to have done so. The 54-year-old Frankston adventurer, who was born deaf and gradually lost her sight (as have two of her siblings), has skydived and bungeejumped, climbed rocks and the Sydney Harbour Bridge, flown in a hot air balloon and skied over snow and water. Scuba diving has long been on her bucket list. Last week she spent an hour in the shallow waters of Ricketts Point Marine Sanctuary, thanks to a support team of seven including her Auslan tactile interpreters and local dive instructor Mike Letch, founder of the Disabled Divers Association. Ms Lawson was tethered to a scuba hose, her tank floating separately so she could explore and sign freely. She held starfish, kelp and sea urchins as interpreter Bill Hynes – also deaf, and a qualified diver – described everything to her in water up to three metres deep and 200 metres offshore. Mr Letch said later that Ms Lawson’s perception of her surroundings was incredible to witness. ‘‘She was so much more in tune with a whole lot of stuff going on than the rest of us,’’ he said. ‘‘She’s super switched on, super intelligent. We want her to become a regular next year, now that we know how it can be done.’’ Back on shore, Ms Lawson – her

grin as wide as the harbour bridge she climbed – declared the experience ‘‘amazing’’. ‘‘I wish I was a seal, then I could stay in the water all day,’’ she said. ‘‘I was pretty nervous before going in, but it was incredible. I was so determined to breathe properly and ignore the waves. ‘‘I could feel the rocks and the shells, and tried hard to understand what the fish being described to me was [a leatherjacket]. ‘‘I hope to do it again if the fish like me enough, and Mike and his team don’t mind doing it again.’’

SUPPLIED

Fine line ’tween vandal and saint BY BRIDGET FITZGERALD bfitzgerald@mmpgroup.com.au

SOMETIMES enforcing the law is a matter of interpretation and circumstance. Hack into a tree on public land to improve your bayside view and the council will fine you up to $2000, but prune a hedge that abuts your property, thereby saving the muncipality the trouble, and you’ll get off scot-free. A woman who recently reported what she thought was an act of tree vandalism outside a foreshore property was told by a council officer: “Due to the scale of the task and cost to ratepayers council accepts residents cutting the shrubs where they abut their fence line.’’ The eagle-eyed resident, who wishes to be anonymous, said she saw a man chainsawing foliage outside his beachfront property.

She said there seemed to be one rule for some people and another rule for others when she was told the man was within his rights to clear his fence line. “I do think the laws about cutting council trees need to be made clearer,” she said. “Bayside council heavily promote dobbing in tree vandals.” Bayside council fines of $2000 apply for tree vandalism and up to $130,000 for breaching the vegetation protection overlay for native vegetation. But a provision in a foreshore management plan adopted in 1999 allows bushes grown along fences of beachfront houses to be cut to fence height by residents. The provision states that all plants at a fence line may be pruned, except for tea-tree, she-oak and Banksia trees.

■ PLANNING REPORT Protecting the heritage of the Brighton Town Hall precinct inches closer with the Planning Minister appointing a panel to hear submissions on the issue on March 20 at Bayside council's corporate centre in Sandringham. The council will call a heritage expert as a witness. For details about the hearing, call the urban strategy department on 9599 4444. ■ RATE COUNCIL Bayside council’s performance is under review with the state government’s annual community satisfaction survey. The phone survey randomly selects 400 respondents from each municipality to take part.

PERMITS PERMITTING VCAT For artist Elina Reddy, the trees of Bayside are a daily inspiration. ‘‘They rise up, forming a border between the foreshore and the great expanse of land that follows . . . On their outer skin, they wear arrays of colours that contain their secrets. They are youthful and yet full of wisdom; they speak of other times, of things bigger than us,’’ as she so poetically puts it. An exhibition of her works, Trees of Bayside, will run from March 28 to April 29 at the Artrium, Bayside corporate centre, 76 Royal Avenue, Sandringham.

has overruled the Bayside council and allowed four doublestorey dwellings to be built at 7 Beltane Avenue, Brighton East, to replace a single-storey house. Fourteen residents objected to the proposal.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR real agenda here – more multi-storey blocks of flats? Rob Saunders / Cheltenham

■ LEAF IT ALONE Bayside council is conducting “focus group” meetings about tree controls on Bayside private properties (‘‘Council seeks tree views’’, RL, February 13). Don’t be fooled! The intention is to extend and tighten existing oppressive regulations. The council should manage tree planting and preservation on nature strips, in parks and other public areas. Focus group input is appropriate. The council could promote tree planting and preservation on private property by providing advice on tree size, positioning, root structure, local soil and climate etc. Heavy-handed coercion is unnecessary, unacceptable – and un-Australian! Nearly all Bayside residents plant trees of some sort on their properties. Many remain undisturbed indefinitely. However,

■ NATURAL WONDER A small number of people claim to be concerned about possible fires in Bayside’s remnant wildflower reserves, (‘‘All fired up’’, Letters, RL, February 27). In reality, hardworking volunteers with the council’s help have greatly reduced any fire risk. These wonderful natural areas were there well before development encroached, and are a reminder of the area’s beauty. Residents of Karinya Grove love looking out on the Bay Road Sanctuary (pictured). What’s the

some become inappropriate, unattractive, incongruous, dangerous or a nuisance. The council should have no jurisdiction over what ratepaying homeowners choose to plant, maintain or remove on their own properties. It’s unconscionable! Jack Saunderson / Beaumaris

TWEET OF THE WEEK SPOTTED A LARGE RAT SWIMMING OUTSIDE THE BATHING BOXES AT BRIGHTON BEACH TONIGHT - NOT EXACTLY THE AMBIENCE WE WERE LOOKING FOR.

Sue Hodges @suehodges61 ■ MORE PARKS, NOT LESS There should not be any further clearance of shrubbery for the benefit of sporting interests. The photo on page seven of the Bayside Review Local (‘‘Park upgrade plan divides groups’’, RL, February 20) underscores the point that there is already insufficient low growth in our parks. Any casual observation of bird life in Cheltenham, although it appears to be abundant, will reveal that there is an absence of small birds. This is in part due to a lack of dense, low growth shrubbery to allow protected nesting for the smaller species. Rod Bryant / Cheltenham

WHEN YOU’RE SMILING Author PETE JENSEN traded a top corporate job for a new lease on life

T

he first three questions Pete Jensen asks every morning are: What’s going to be my adventure today? What kindness can I show someone else? What kindness can I show myself? “The third is the hardest one,’’ says the Hampton-based transformational speaker, corporate consultant and author of Lessons in Happiness from the Third World. Jensen spent his childhood travelling from one village to another in South Africa with his Danish missionary parents, and then worked as a high school teacher and later in asset management before moving to Australia 12 years ago. He became a corporate consultant but depression struck while he was working in the “very toxic culture” of a global company. “It’s the big reason why I wrote the book,’’ he says.“I sought help, I had the latest tools but I was stuck like in quicksand,’’ he says.

“I decided to leave everything. I called my sister and said I was taking my car and driving into the desert and never coming back. “What she said to me was the turning point. She said ‘no matter what, you will always have a roof over your head at my house’ and ‘what a great lesson for the kids that you can fail and start again’.” Jensen found out that 25 per cent of Australian adults suffered depression. “I thought about the villages in South Africa, and why it is that the people who have the least in the world are so happy. The answers were: community, purpose and gratitude, which are the key tips in Jensen’s book. “This book is a stocktake for the west,’’ he says.“It’s about family, having a role in the community, rites of passage for young people, respect for the older people as storytellers. “We have lost that in the west.”

Opening gifts After being assessed as both gifted and dyslexic, James Kirby set out to help kids just like him. By BRIDGET FITZGERALD

C

atherine Kirby’s son is bright, articulate and confident. Jake, 14, started in year 9 at Sandringham College this year and loves going to school. His favourite subjects are science and English, he sings and is in the school’s accelerated maths program.When he grows up, he wants to pursue a career in the theatre, possibly as a director; he hasn’t decided yet. But just over a year ago, Jake was failing at school. He was struggling emotionally and his parents and teachers didn’t know why. “I was concerned about his mental health,” says his mother. “He was very close to clinical depression, and not in a good place.” It was at that point that Kirby met Anne Jackson, a tutor and counsellor for students who are gifted with a learning disability. Jackson identified that Jake was one of a very small percentage of the population classified as “twice exceptional” or 2E. Also known as gifted learning disabled (GLD), twice exceptional children are in the top 10 per cent of the population for intelligence, but have some form of learning disability. Jackson says there is no clear-cut definition for what this disability might be, but it can be anything that interferes with “the gifted student’s ability to learn”. She works with a broad range of students who might have autism, Asperger syndrome, dyslexia or audio-visual problems. Some 2E kids have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, or less commonly, a physical disability. Jake is a high functioning, high IQ student, but he suffers from dyslexia, which has inhibited his classroom development. Jake spent six months in intensive counselling with Jackson – Kirby pulled him out of school two days a week to attend the sessions.“He knew that he had this ability, but something was hampering it,” says Kirby. ‘‘With him it was dyslexia.” She says that within those six months, Jake was completely transformed.“He’s just so confident, gorgeous, funny – and from the testing perspective he’s leapt four years. He’s gone from two years behind to two-plus years ahead.”

Kirby says her son’s impressive progress cannot be attributed to “a crash course in maths, English or literature”, but his emotional development through counselling. “It’s just being in a happy place,” she says. It was out of Jake’s success story that Bayside-based teaching and professional development group Kids Like Us was born in January 2012. The group offers counselling, support and information resources for 2E children and is directed by Kirby and Jackson. The concept was developed by Kirby’s three dyslexic and gifted children Jake, Kit and Lalli.

It was Jake who came up with the idea of a comprehensive support group after he sat in on an information session for parents with dyslexic children. “All these mums were sitting there talking about what it was like and the difficulties they were having,” says Jake.“I thought, what we need is some kind of kid-to-kid support.” Kirby says by the time she and Jake arrived home from Jackson’s session, he had worked out a basic outline for Kids Like Us.“He got home and woke up Kit, who in turn woke up Lalli,” she says.“They asked, ‘what can we do?’ and ‘do you think Anne could help us?’.” Kirby and Jackson pulled together a group of about 15 students from age five to 20 whom Jackson had worked with over the years. The group helped devise a structure for Kids Like Us, drawing on their own experiences in the classroom to help create tutoring and counselling programs for ‘‘kids like them’’. The group’s primary focus is to help “twice exceptional” children “understand that they have brilliance and to help them find their passion”. Jackson says that one of the key aims is making sure kids “have the guts” to make a change in their schooling. She suggests students ask their teachers if they can complete a task in a different way that accommodates their learning difficulties.“I work with students so that by year 8 they are able to talk to teachers themselves and explain their needs,’’ she says. Jake says he tends to sit at the front of class so he can

concentrate.“But if I can’t complete something, instead of asking for a note from mum, I’ll go to the teacher myself and ask to change something,” he says.

When it comes to teaching gifted children, there can’t be a “one size fits all” model, says the vice president of the Victorian Association for Gifted and Talented Children, Susan Nikakis. About 10 per cent of the population is believed to be gifted. Definitions of giftedness vary, but in Australia educators generally agree on Quebec psychologist Francoys Gagne’s definition, which identifies giftedness as ‘‘outstanding natural abilities’’ in one or more domain. Gagne’s definition particularly recognises ability outside the academic sphere such as arts, business, and technology. Giftedness is usually seen as an ‘‘untrained ability’’ that is developed into a measurable ‘‘talent’’ through practice. Nikakis is the Catholic Education Office’s representative on a Department of Education and Early Childhood Development working party looking at the education of gifted children in Victoria. An inquiry into gifted education which was published in June last year found that gifted students do not receive the support they need outside their academic work. A survey by the Gifted Support SCOTT MCNAUGHTON

Main picture: Jake Kirby, 14, has turned his life around

Inset: Catherine Kirby (front) runs the group Kids Like Us with Anne Jackson (far left). The group aims to help gifted children who also have learning difficulties

Network, quoted in the inquiry, found that 75 per cent of gifted children have a special needs teacher at their school, but just 28 per cent have a special needs teacher who works with gifted students. Nikakis says there is no precise figure for the percentage of gifted children who also have a learning disability such as autism or dyslexia. US-based gifted education expert Barbara Kerr estimates the figure is about 14 per cent of gifted children. She says many such students have a superior vocabulary, advanced opinion and high levels of creativity. “They sometimes have poor social skills, however they are extremely curious, possess penetrating insight and have a sophisticated sense of humour.” Jackson began working with 2E children when she discovered her son, who was also failing at school, was gifted. ‘‘In the 1990s my eldest son was struggling in school,” Jackson says.“He was threatening suicide – he was so miserable and bored.” She contacted the school’s welfare person who had just been trained under the ‘‘Bright Futures Policy’’ – a gifted education policy that was scrapped in 1999. She conducted an IQ test and found that Jackson’s son ranked in the top 0.5 percentile. “She encouraged the school to accelerate him a year but stated quite openly the staff had no idea what to do with him.” As a teacher, Jackson was not prepared to let her son continue to fall behind, as many gifted children do. She retrained in gifted education to support his needs. “Since then I have completed every possible academic course in gifted that I can,” she says. She is now studying a doctor of education. Kirby and Jackson agree that despite their particular abilities, 2E children need specialised support, just as non-gifted children with dyslexia and autism do. Kirby says it’s not that 2E children have an inability to learn, they just need extra confidence in their own ability to learn and to “cope with the challenging bits”. As a Kids Like Us spokesman, Jake is hoping he can give confidence to other children who are struggling like he was. He no longer finds school daunting. He says if a 600word essay was handed to him a year ago it would have shaken him, but he has been transformed. “I just take it on as a challenge,” he says.

Instead, they can revisit an area they really like at any time,” says Bernadette Mercieca, Xavier College’s religious education teacher and year 9 religious

education co-ordinator. This type of independence has also helped the college’s year 12 religion and society class make use of social learning platform Edmodo to respond to teachers’ comments and complete quizzes on key vocabulary and concepts. “They find it a fun way to learn, especially the kids who would not enjoy writing it down in a book, they get to learn it through a game context,’’ Mercieca says. Games for Change, a socialimpact games organisation producing games to teach students about social and world issues and religion, is also used by the college. “They have role-playing games and last year, they [students] took on the role of a reporter for ways to learn about refugees.They felt they learnt much more from that than from a movie,” says Mercieca.

SCHOOLYARD bullying is nothing new. Taunts, exclusion and unprovoked physical aggression have made young lives miserable for centuries. So why is it such an epidemic in the 21st century? Most children have the potential to be bullied, but perpetrators often target those who are different or perceived as weak, such as a child who wears thick glasses, is overweight, studious or highly intelligent. Evelyn Field, a Melbourne psychologist and author of Bully Blocking, says it involves an abuse of power by a more powerful person or group. Sustained bullying requires the target to react in a vulnerable manner. Field says that unlike normal school ground antics, bullying injures the victim and leaves physical, psychological or emotional scars. If parents are unsure whether their child is being targeted, Field says they should record all suspected incidents to provide a record and identify patterns.They can also discuss with their child why bullies act. Some experts urge victims to walk away, but Field says they should look bullies in the eye and respond. ‘‘Blocking replies” are

PREVIEW he opening night of contemporary dance company Chunky Move’s latest production will mark 247 days since artistic director Anouk van Dijk arrived in Melbourne from her native Netherlands. This period of time serves not only as the title of the piece, but acts as a vehicle for van Dijk to explore the tensions of acclimatising to a different social, political and cultural landscape. A trip to the sacred site of Uluru at age 18 resonated strongly with the choreographer and influenced her concept of space and distance. It has also shaped the direction of her most recent work. 247 Days, opening this week at the Malthouse’s Merlyn Theatre, reunites the team from the award-winning An Act of Now which premiered at Melbourne Festival last year. It’s been a fruitful collaborative process, says company dancer Lauren Langlois. “It’s nice to come back into something and for it to be familiar.

she says. “It’s like a little family, we all get along really well. We have built that dynamic and familiarity with technique and the team.” Although the intimacy is comforting, the process of making the work has at times been challenging for Langlois. During the development phase the dancers were asked to respond to three pages of personal questions compiled by van Dijk, in front of the rest of the company. Without much time to reflect, the dancers exposed personal details about their lives by sharing 247 DAYS awkward Where: Malthouse Theatre, moments and 113 Sturt Street, Southbank raw emotions. When: March 15–23 “I found that Cost: $30-$49 hard at the Details: malthousetheatre.com.au beginning of the process, it was quite revealing talking about myself in a personal way,” says Langlois who is more at ease communicating through

movement. “But it makes [the work] richer and emotionally strong and the audience can relate.” Van Dijk also asked the dancers to bring in four different outfits and invited them to ask friends and family along to be photographed. The group was instructed to spin in circles and jump up and down while a photographer captured unguarded moments – a look on their face or an awkward body position. These photographs were narrowed down to a series of 30 images and van Dijk incorporated the poses and select responses to the questionnaire into the work through movement, physicality, voice and text. Van Dijk is putting the elements that work together. But a few weeks before opening night there is still room to play around, says Langlois.“The way Anouk works we’ll still be playing around until the very end, so it doesn’t get stale.” SARAH MOORE smoore@mmpgroup.com.au

I don’t have children but have several pets who also cost a bit to keep. We often banter as to whether pets or children cost more! I will never forget when he asked me to go to a well-known jewellery retailer in Collins Street to “collect” his wife’s birthday present.

One time he pulled up at a motel a group of us were staying at and he had the roof off. We were congregating in the forecourt and saw Mark pull up but when he went to shut the roof it only half closed, with the soft top pointing to the sky. He had to find a carport to shelter it for the night. We don’t let him forget that. Mark used to visit me often when I had a broken leg. At that time he only had a motor scooter so he would bring soup in the pot in his backpack. The lid would be sealed with duct tape!

MARK (left) Brendan always has a calm air about him but I’d never tell him that. He always seems to be working hard and leaving dinners early because he has to be up for work bright and fresh. We swim together twice a week and I pick him up on the way to the pool.We are competitive and have swim-offs to see who’s the quickest.

We once challenged each other to do two swimming events. One was from Port Melbourne to Williamstown. Brendan freaked out a bit because we had to swim through packs of jellyfish and I ploughed through them. I finished well in front.We then went to Sydney to do a swim in the harbour. I went so hard at the start that I was worn out quickly. Brendan passed me halfway through the swim and finished well in front of me. I was wearing a wetsuit of Brendan’s – it came undone during the swim and I’m sure he rigged it! Brendan collects red wine so my wife and I have him over for dinner and Brendan provides the wine. He thinks I’m accident-prone and doesn’t want me to drive his car. We often joke that we went to the same primary school, live near each other and will end up at the same retirement village.

STEPHEN MCKENZIE

Ormond’s finals return brings positive vibe BY DANIEL PAPROTH dpaproth@mmpgroup.com.au

ORMOND hitting the winning runs against Brighton on March 2 is a moment Mathew Cousins will never forget. Cousins – club secretary and captain of the third XI – had raced down to Brighton Beach Oval to watch the first XI as it tried to chase down Brighton’s total of 7/225. Were they to be successful it would be the first time in more than two decades the firsts qualified for finals. Lower-order batsman Russell Oaten scored the winning runs and Cousins described the scenes as ‘‘absolute pandemonium’’. ‘‘Unfortunately we lost our game [third XI] and it finished early, but nearly the whole third XI got down to Brighton Beach Oval to watch the firsts,’’ Cousins says. ‘‘When Russell Oaten hit those runs it was just absolute pandemonium. I was in the rooms after the game and the club song was

sung with a lot of intent. There were a lot of very loud and proud people in that room.’’ Ormond’s return to the subdistrict finals would not be easy however, with a match against competition heavyweight Melton. Season 1990-91 was the last time Ormond made the finals in the Victorian Sub-District Association, of which it has been a member since 1949-50. It has been a lean two decades for the club. The past four seasons alone have seen it collect the wooden spoon twice. Cousins says the finals berth feels like the dawn of a new era for Ormond. ‘‘I think so. We’ve still got a long way to go but this feels like the first step in rebuilding the club,’’ he says. ‘‘Our goal was to make finals and we have achieved that.’’ The turnaround can be attributed to an inf lux of players, both new and returning. The club recruited former district cricketer Dale Christie as its head coach, which proved a

masterstroke. Christie played at premier clubs Prahran, HawthornMonash University and Richmond before coming to Ormond in the offseason. Cousins says his input has been instrumental. ‘‘He has given the club a lot of leadership,’’ he says. ‘‘We had a longer pre-season than we have had in the past and worked on some programs and plans that Dale wanted to implement right across the board, right down to the fourth XI. ‘‘With Dale coming on board there’s been a real positive vibe around the club and he brought in a new mantra to make it compulsory for guys to stick around on Thursday and Saturday nights.’’ Looking ahead Cousins says making finals was ‘‘a huge boost’’. ‘‘It’s huge, absolutely huge. It’s been unbelievable, really.’’

Drawn game a finals ‘tune-up’ dpaproth@mmpgroup.com.au

ST Kilda will take on Dandenong in the Victorian Premier Cricket quarter finals this weekend after drawing its match with Ringwood and dropping out of the top four. Dandenong jumped from tenth to fourth on the ladder when it beat Richmond outright, and will host the match against the Saints. Ringwood resumed at 9/271 on Saturday and frustrated St Kilda in the first session, adding 28 runs before Michael Topp was bowled for 11. Daniel King remained not out on 26 setting the Saints a target of 300 from reduced overs. St Kilda leggie James Muirhead finished with 4/123 from a marathon 41 overs, while Daniel Mueller, Daniel Babula and Shea Gribben all grabbed two wickets apiece. With 77 overs to face, the Saints had a big chase ahead and were in trouble early at 2/12 when Chris Blake and Tom Moffat were both back in the sheds cheaply. When Graeme Rummans went out the Saints were 3/66, Daniel For-

bes was out leg before for 34 taking them to 4/70. Andrew McGuinness (71) and wicketkeeper Damon Rowan (89) resurrected the innings with a 132-run stand before McGuinness was caught. Rowan shared small partnerships with Muirhead (26) and Mueller (12) but was caught behind trying to lift the run-rate. He scored a four and a six before going out for 89. Topp’s 3/30 was the best for Ringwood as Shea Gribben denied them in the final over despite a big lbw shout. Ringwood skipper Ben Osborne said it was the perfect tune-up for finals. “It was a bit of a nothing result in the end but it was a really good hit-out coming into finals,” he said. ‘‘That was finals cricket that we played the last two weekends, a real grind, real competitive cricket.” Rummans said St Kilda needed to improve this weekend. “We’ve been a little off the past few weeks and haven’t played to our potential,” he said. “What cost us were a few missed chances last week that let them get to 300.”

Royals give enough to stay out of danger zone SANDRINGHAM Royals lost their final match of the baseball Victorian Summer League but will remain in division one. An 8-1 loss to Upwey-Ferntree Gully was an ugly way for the season to finish, but the club president and senior coach were satisfied with the team’s results.

The loss meant Sandringham finished 10th, ahead of Sunshine and Malvern who are in danger of being relegated to division two. President Greg Street said: “There wasn’t a lot of emotion’’ in the last game. ‘‘Being the last game and we couldn’t be relegated, it was a bit of a non-effort.”

■ COUGARS SIGN IMPORT McKinnon Cougars are continuing pre-season training for the 2013 Big V basketball season with Canadian import Kale Harrison. Harrison, a 2.03m tall shooting guard from Wilford Laurier University in Ontario Canada, signed with the club last month.

Senior coach Dan McGrath, who will take a step back and coach the thirds team next season, said it was a disappointing finish but he was happy the club had achieved its goal of staying in division one. “We wanted to finish off with a win but we came out extremely flat,” he said.

“But it has been an extremely successful season. We fast-tracked ourselves back into division one ... our ultimate goal was to stay up, and we did that. “Even though we finished 10th we were only one game out of sixth. The club is in a very healthy position on and off the field.’’

■ THIRDS TEAM READY VAFA Premier B grade club Old Haileybury will field a thirds team in the 2013 season. The team will play at Princes Park in Caulfield. Former player Adam Floyd will coach. The club has also signed Blake Carson and William Mason. ■ STATE’S BEST South Caulfield was crowned Cricket Victoria statewide Twenty20 champion after beating Upwey-Tecoma in the final at the MCG last Sunday. Jordan Clarke was the man of the match as South Caulfield romped to a 26-run victory.
