OWADAYS in a lot of big businesses, there are a lot of female staff. But when you get to the higher levels there aren’t that many women. There’s a point at which the women tend to not go any further. I think one problem is that girls want to be perfect in every way before they apply for a job. The boys just sometimes go for it. But if the girls don’t think they can be the best for the company, they don’t even try. The idea of leading a big group of people, having a lot of pressure on you, is scary. But when I went to the Leadership Academy I found it was more about style, how you present yourself and direct a project or a group of people. They taught us how to set SMART goals – that is, specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, time-based goals. I’m not sure what my style is yet. I’d like to see myself as a democratic leader, getting all the information from people before I make a decision. The best advice they gave us was that leadership is not about telling everyone else what to do. It is about listening to what everyone has to say and making a decision about what is morally right and the best for the team. I can’t name any leaders I admire. I just admire the fact that they can motivate people and get something done. As a gymnastics captain at school, I have had to do that a couple of times. There were girls who didn’t think they were suited to the sport; they didn’t think they had the flexibility

Auburn High waits for government green light on name and date HAWTHORN Secondary College will hold a public information night next week about its proposed rebirth as Auburn High School while waiting for the state government to approve the changes. As RL went to print, the school council was still waiting for Educa-

tion Minister Martin Dixon to give the green light to the school’s reopening next year with a new name and new specialist streams in maths, science and languages. The delay is likely to put pressure on the school as it seeks to hire suitably qualified teachers ahead of an

expected year 7 intake of about 100 students, up from about 40 this year. The information night on May 14 will detail the proposed French and Mandarin immersion streams, which might include 20 periods a week during which maths, science and geography are taught in those

languages. The school is looking for teachers f luent in Mandarin and French and has alerted universities. The school council expects most students to come from the Boroondara, Stonnington and Yarra council areas, but some may “be prepared to

travel from the far-flung suburbs to access the study of a bilingual program”. Also likely to be offered are creative arts and a strong sports program, with swimming, cycling and Australian rules football being considered. ALISON BARCLAY

RATEPAYERS face a 4.7 per cent rates increase in the new financial year as Boroondara council tries to manage wage rises and a $14.3 million superannuation bill from the state government. The hefty invoice – caused by an employee super shortfall that came to light last year – will force the council to take out a loan to be repaid at $3.3 million a year over five years. Mayor Jack Wegman said he was glad the property rate increase would not hit 5 per cent, as the council had initially forecast, and the coming rise would be the lowest for a decade. “Despite significant cost rises, we have been able to bring it in at 4.7 per cent,’’ Cr Wegman told last week’s council meeting at which the proposed budget for 2013-14 was tabled. The council will also keep a lid

on capital works costs over the next year, with a predicted $11 million loan reduced to $2 million. The loan will help pay for $61 million in work on major projects, including completing the new Hawthorn Leisure and Aquatic Centre and the revamped Ashburton Library. Community services, renewal works on 45 council buildings, $11 million worth of roads and drains maintenance and $3 million worth of new low-power lighting will be the big-ticket expenses out of the $153.4 million budget, with the overall cost of council services likely to top $93 million. Rates revenue is expected to jump by $6.82 million to $124.18 million. The hike comes as ratepayers face the extra expense of the new fire services levy, which comes into effect on July 1. The draft budget is available for public comment until May 29. Council expects to finalise the budget in June.

Singer leads Spectacular IMOGEN Spendlove recalls being able to sing before she could talk. At just 12 years old, the Balwyn High School student’s performances have attracted more than six million views on YouTube. The rising star is preparing to perform in the 2013 Victorian State Schools Spectacular alongside 3000 students in a production of There’s No Place Like Home. Performing in eight numbers and singing a solo, this will be Imogen’s fourth time as a leading lady in the school showcase. ‘‘It is really good to be in the spectacular and represent my school in this way," she says. "It is not every day I get to stand and sing in front of a thousand people, so it is very exciting." When she is not busy rehearsing for the show, Imogen studies jazz, piano and music therapy at school, as well as the harp.

Residents join forces to protect Canterbury abarclay@mmpgroup.com.au

THIRTY-FIVE years ago, a group of Canterbury residents got together to save historic Maling Road from the wrecker’s ball. Now they’re casting the net wider – the old Maling Road guard and their younger neighbours are joining forces to help protect all of Canterbury. The new Canterbury Residents Action Group (CRAG) will divide

the suburb among zone representatives, who will note development proposals and alert residents. With the support of the police, the group also wants to revamp Canterbury station, with a grand goal of a new two-storey car park, and restore some land to the Canterbury Gardens. Among the residents are historian Frances Barrett, artist Stuart Warmington and his son Tim, owner of Tim’s Bookshop, and Robyn Adams, who led the campaign to save the

1860s mansion Shrublands. One of the original Maling Road defenders, Lorri Buttner, said CRAG would draw in lots of local groups to share information. “We have fought the biggest battle, and now we need to protect what we’ve got,” Ms Buttner said. “CRAG will be an umbrella for all sorts of interesting groups such as Canterbury Historical Society, Friends of Canterbury Station, Neighbourhood Watch, walking groups, traders.

‘‘We’ll have a committee of up to eight people, plus people who choose to be zone representatives. ‘‘If they hear of inappropriate development proposed, they might activate that zone and let all the residents know.’’ CRAG will meet for the first time on May 21, at 7pm, at Camberwell Town Hall council chambers. ‘‘Anybody who is a resident and who wants to protect what is special about Canterbury” is encouraged to attend, Ms Buttner said.

KRISTIAN SCOTT

Green team scores gold A pair of passionate horticulturalists have blossomed in a state government competition, despite having thousands of dollars of plants stolen from their Ashburton garden. Mai Huong Pham and her son Khoa Pham were awarded Best Sustainable Garden in the Victoria in Bloom contest, which recognises the green-fingered talents of public housing tenants. In March, RL reported the pair’s garden had been targeted by thieves who stole mature grass trees worth $800 each in the lead-up to judging for the contest. However, the sanctuary of prehistoric and Asian plants proved a winner, with the mother and son team receiving the award at a ceremony at Melbourne’s Royal Botanic Gardens. ‘‘Everything is good now, we are very happy to have won,’’ Mrs Pham said.

Camberwell building plan voted down BY ALISON BARCLAY abarclay@mmpgroup.com.au

A $10 MILLION Camberwell development hangs in the balance after Boroondara councillors rejected it as too big, too bulky and likely to cause parking problems in a crowded street. The three-storey, 39-flat building proposed for Seymour Grove received 50 objections.

The busy street is home to a childcare centre and a kindergarten. The councillors voted unanimously against the proposal, despite a planning officer’s report in its favour. Tennis courts on the site were until last year owned by the Our Lady of Victories Catholic parish. OLV will soon open an early learning centre nearby on the campus of the former OLV primary school.

“There will be thousands, literally thousands of cars coming to that,” a Seymour Grove resident told the council’s urban planning meeting last month. He and other residents told the council the building would cast their houses into shade and have 13 balconies overlooking their private gardens. “The development to my mind contradicts council’s policy of main-

taining the green, leafy amenity of Boroondara,” he said. “We can really see flats taking off right down Seymour Grove [which will] cease to be a street for families.” A spokeswoman for town planning firm Urbis, representing the developer, said future occupants would not be given street parking permits so would not compete for car spaces, and that the design would minimise overshadowing.

“We believe it is an appropriate design response to the site,” she said. Mayor Jack Wegman said the building would be “dominant” on the single-storey houses nearby. “This will be the first development of its type in the street and it will fundamentally change the character,” he said. The developer has 60 days to lodge an appeal with VCAT.

ARI HATZIS

Swinburne staff bans set to bite BY EDDIE MORTON and BRIDGET FITZGERALD SWINBURNE University staff are no closer to a resolution over a new collective agreement, six months after negotiations began, according to the Victorian National Tertiary Education Union. Frustrations boiled over last month when 150 staff members from the Hawthorn campus voted for a series of bans and 10-minute stoppages on May 14. Talks between the union and Swinburne senior management began in October over a new collective agreement, which expired last June. The union described the old agreement as “flawed”. The union is calling for a 7 per cent annual wage increase, up from 4 per cent, and changes to workloads and increased funding

for professional development programs. “The first ban is on the unfair and inappropriate performance-appraisal system at Swinburne,” union assistant secretary Ryan Hsu said. Swinburne University staff will cease online duties and will not respond to inquiries through the student services portal Swinburne Online on May 14. Mr Hsu said the bans had been chosen to have minimal impact on students. Further action was on the cards if union requests were ignored. Swinburne University vicepresident Andrew Smith said the industrial action could be disruptive, but this month’s bans and stoppages would not affect classes. He said the union claims would have a financial impact of more than $30 million on the university.

Quality time for fighters

OFF TO CAMP: Time out for Brett and Anne Hallam and their children, Isla and Chelsea

ISLA Hallam has had a tough start. The Glen Iris three-year-old was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia when she was 17 months old. She spent two years and four months having treatment, including chemotherapy, and has been admitted to the Royal Children’s Hospital more than 20 times.

Isla’s mother, Anne, said their journey had been made easier by cancer charity Camp Quality, which provided support for her elder daughter Chelsea, 6, through its camps and fun days and offered the family special events. ‘‘I didn’t leave Melbourne for well over 12 months after Isla was diagnosed because I was worried

about being too far from medical treatment,’’ Anne said. ‘‘But Camp Quality has medical staff that can help if you have problems, and last year we went on a family camp to Phillip Island. Camp Quality holds its annual Supper Club fund-raiser on May 16. Details: visit supperclub.org.au.

Residents cross over church loss

■ CORRECTION In the April 22 issue of Boroondara RL, the story about the sale of a nature strip in Balwyn North stated a property owner had built over their title boundary onto a road reserve without a permit. The property owner in fact legally built garden retaining walls on the threemetre embankment with the council’s approval.Boroondara mayor Jack Wegman confirmed the owner had followed correct procedure. RL regrets the error, which was made by the reporter.

■ SPORTING PLAN Boroondara council is considering its next sporting facilities investment policy, which guides how sports dollars are spent in the next five years. Among concerns raised by residents are schools’ increased use of public sports grounds, and the dwindling number of squash courts. Complete a survey at boroondara.vic.gov.au until May 24.

CAMPAIGN: Members of the Kew East Residents Association outside the old Freemasons church in Strathalbyn Street

the

Brow Bar

KEW East residents campaigning to save a former church had their hopes dashed last week when Boroondara council told them it could not afford to buy it. The Kew Masonic Centre in Strathalbyn Street was the subject of a petition signed by 667 residents seeking to have council buy the buildings for use as a community centre. But Boroondara councillors voted unanimously last week to look instead at eventually providing a purpose-built centre at another site. Studley ward councillor Phillip Healey said the council had inspected the church and found it “simply not a viable venture for us’’, especially as the Masons had applied for a permit to demolish the church and build 12 apartments on the site. “There is a contract with a developer,’’ he said. “We have to be real; it does not make financial

sense, it won’t be a terrific outcome and it is not viable.’’ Kew East Residents Association spokesman Brad Miles said residents were heartened by the promise to pursue building a new centre. But he was disappointed with the decision, which he said was made without the councillors seeking a report on the residents’ proposal. “As to funding, there is never enough money – but that is a matter of priorities,” Mr Miles said. “The council found money for a very large centre in Hawthorn and they are building a new one in Ashburton, which already has two community centres. Hopefully Kew East will go to the top of the list one day.” The Masonic Centre is home to fencing and judo clubs and playgroups. Mr Miles said any new centre also needed to include rehearsal space for bands and choirs, and meeting rooms for U3A, which has expressed interest in holding classes in the area.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR ■ A NEW DAWN After reading the moving story of Colin Hamley’s experience as a prisoner of war (‘‘Three and a half years in Hell’’, RL, April 24’), I was motivated to get up early and attend a dawn service for the first time in more than 30 years. I am so grateful that I did – I joined what seemed like a few hundred others at the North Balwyn RSL for a very moving commemoration to our service men and women, past and present. Thank you so much Mr Hamley for sharing your story, which has inspired me to continue to pay my respects on this important day for all Australians. Lisa Wade Brown/ via email ■ BRIDGE TOO FAR? Willsmere Park does have a sensitive environmental area – the billabong (‘‘Council puts brakes on bike path’’, RL, May 1). The bike path route goes around that, as per advice from the comprehensive environmental assessment that was conducted a

few years ago. Willsmere Park is also a dog off-leash area – the most environmentally sensitive parks are dog on-leash. The area where the bridge will meet the park and the path will go is in fact currently infested with weeds such as tradescantia and cape weed. It is in need of replanting of native grasses and other vegetation. Representatives from some lobby groups addressing the council saying ‘‘just kill it, kill the bridge’’ seem to have undue influence in this matter. It would be great if Boroondara council could have a referendum on this matter so that the strong community support for it would surface. When the path is built there, it will generate more interest in the park that will most likely lead to environmental improvements that are sorely needed. The park is an asset for all Boroondara residents – and for the general public in Melbourne, too. Peter Campbell / via website

■ HERE’S CHEERS Three cheers for the councillors who voted to save Willsmere Park (‘‘Council puts brakes on bike path’’, RL, May 1) and a giant brickbat to the three councillors who voted for its destruction – councillors Heinz Kreutz, Coral Ross and Philip Mallis – and caved in to the bicycle lobby. Put the ratepayers of Boroondara first, not the all-powerful bicycle lobby. Greg Thomas / via website

And the winner is... Solway Primary School was named Sustainable School of the Year 2012 at the Boroondara Sustainability Awards ceremony in Camberwell on 24 April. The Ashburton school was one of 11 local schools recognised for embracing environmentally-responsible curriculums, everyday actions and special operations.

■ BRAVE CHOICE It is a brave municipal council that gives the state government a slap in the face on their $18 million commitment a build the bridge in Willsmere Park (‘‘Council puts brakes on bike path’’, RL, May 1). Particularly when that state government is on a knife edge. As a dog owner I look at this park as a playground for dogs. It is big, flat and mown within an inch of its life. Alex / via website

LOOK The boys were in black on BURKE ROAD, Camberwell

LACHIE FULLER Lives: Camberwell. Works: I work at a cinema in the city. What are you doing here today? On the way to work. What are you wearing? Asos pants, Vans shoes, Wrangler jacket. Shirt is from Universal in Melbourne Central. Headphones are AudioTechnica. Bag is Herschel. Personal style: Pretty laid back. It’s a thrown together thing. Style muse: I don’t know. There’s nothing in particular. Music is a big factor. I went to see Tame Impala on Friday night, so maybe alternative rock kind of thing? Anything Triple J plays, I guess.

MATT LIN Lives: Taiwan, but I’ve been living in Kew for six years. Works: Hairdresser. What are you doing here today? Just finished work and heading home. I’ve got a new housemate moving in tomorrow. What are you wearing? The pants are from Zara. The shoes are from Asos. The rest is from Thailand and Taiwan. The bag is from Australia, but it’s quite old. The jacket is from Asos as well. Personal style: I don’t really have a style, I just do what I want. Style muse: I look at some websites to get inspiration for fashion week. Vivienne Westwood. I love her because she is a little bit crazy. All her combinations are quite cool.

Y

ou might have thought hoops were a modern invention, but Egyptian tomb drawings from 1000BC show people playing with them. In 14th century England they were all the rage until doctors blamed them for heart attacks and back problems. Then in 1957, an Aussie children’s wooden hoop inspired the bright plastic hoops California company Wham-O began to manufacture. I hooped as a youngster but spent more time chasing after my hoop than spinning it. This time I am determined to master the swirl. At the hoop dance class we form a human hoop and follow instructor Kirsty Vis as she takes us through a warm-up to stretch and twist. The music is loud and pumping a heavy bassline – perfect for the fast-paced workout. We break into two groups – beginner and intermediate – and Vis splits her time between each group setting us bite-sized tasks to practice. She returns to check our progress often and gives us tips to improve technique.

When the hour is up, I just want to keep spinning. Gyrating in a church hall might be an unusual way to learn a new skill and keep fit – hooping for an hour burns around 700 calories – but I am hooked.

HUMAN RIGHTS ARTS AND FILM FESTIVAL Where: ACMI (Australian Centre for the Moving Image), Federation Square, and other venues When: May 9-23 Details: hraff.org.au

illiam Kamkwamba (pictured) was 14 and freshly out of school because of family poverty when he used scraps to build a windmill that gave electricity to his village in Malawi. He had built more, out of bicycle parts, wires, plastic pipes, bottle caps and other junk, before he caught the attention of local media, bloggers and eventually Brooklynbased filmmaker Ben Nabors. Nabors, 31, spent five years making the independent film William and the Windmill, which he is bringing to Melbourne’s Human Rights Arts And Film Festival after picking up several awards in the US. “That windmill spinning when he was 14 set off a long chain of events,’’ Nabors says of the film that takes the viewer from a poor farming village in Malawi to the US where William speaks at a TED Conference, co-writes the book The

Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, goes on a whirlwind of international book tours, and helps build a school for his village. “But William remains incredibly humble ... He is always looking around and seeing how he can help his village. His heart and his head are in Malawi even though he is now in his third year of environmental studies at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire. “He is very interested in returning to Malawi and continuing his philosophy of applied solutions.’’ The film, funded primarily through private donations and online sites, is one of 20 feature films in the festival that also features two series of shorts – Australian and international – and art exhibitions. Festival director Ella McNeill says Nabors’ film was still in production when she snapped it up for the festival. “This year’s festival is focusing on people who inspire us,’’ she says. “One of the running themes is surprising and challenging viewers about their preconceptions of people and places. William, a poor boy from a poor village, challenges your preconceptions. “He is not chasing fame and all the things that people in the western world value so highly. It

is so grounding. William is given everything but that’s not what makes him, or people, happy.’’ The sixth annual festival, which opens in Melbourne before touring to Sydney, Canberra, Perth, Brisbane and Alice Springs, kicks off with the documentary Alias Ruby Blade and its portrayal of the power of individuals to affect history in East Timor. The opening night screening will be followed by a Q&A with Melbourne-bred Kirsty Sword Gusmao, wife of East Timor Prime Minister Xanana Gusmao; the film’s director Alex Meillier and producer Tanya Meillier. Closing the festival will be In the Shadow of the Sun, which looks at one man’s fight to stop ritual killings of albinos in Tanzania.The film will be followed by a Q&A with director Harry Freeland and protagonist Josephat Torner. “This year we are surprising people with what human rights on film looks like,’’ says McNeill. “With a beautiful children’s film [Zarafa] from French master animators, a radical Filipino shockumentary [Mondomanila], to the Australian premiere of the new work [Walk Away Renee] by Jonathan Caouette, this program will surprise and intrigue you.’’ HARBANT GILL hgill@mmpgroup.com.au

PICK UP TAKEAWAY For a snack, Canterbury Fruit Emporium, a family-run business that’s been in Maling Road for over 40 years. Tony and Miffy are fruit and veg experts – their peaches and nectarines are to die for!

CATCH UP WITH FRIENDS Chez Dre is always a winner. Breakfast and lunch are fantastic

but it’s the to-die-for cakes that are the jewel in its crown. HAVE A BIG NIGHT OUT With two kids and a seven-day business, big nights out are far and few between. But the other night we went out to a place called Captain Melville, a restaurant and bar housed in one of the oldest pubs in Melbourne. BUY A NICE BOTTLE OF WINE Wine like coffee has so many varietals.To take the guesswork out, I go to Nick’s, a family-owned business that has great customer service. I can always rely on their expertise and recommendations. LAND A BARGAIN I buy all my cookware for the cafe and home at Cookware Brands Outlet. It stocks leading cookware brands but at prices that are 50-70 per cent less than retail.

hen it comes to children learning a second language, they can never start too young. As long as they have a passionate teacher, an interest in the second language or culture and can implement the techniques of how language operates, children can easily learn a second language. Education Week, running from May 19 to 25, has a theme of languages, drawing on Melbourne’s multicultural environment where more than 200 languages are spoken and more than 40 per cent of people have a parent who was born overseas. Dr Russell Cross, senior lecturer in language and literacy education at Melbourne Graduate School of Education, says learning a second language improves literacy, brain development, social competence and the way children view other cultures and the world. “It’s a sense of understanding how the world is,” he says.“There is not just one language to understand everything.You can’t separate language from culture. “Once you start to speak another language, you understand different

ways of being and relating. It opens your eyes up to ways of thinking. “There is a sense of achievement learners have when they learn another language and can communicate with that. It can help with self-esteem, a sense of accomplishment and development – it’s not just a mark on a test, it becomes a social skill.” Pina Dunne, languages co-ordinator at St Monica’s College in Epping, says she has found students’ self-esteem and confidence grows from learning to communicate in a second language. In the classroom, she has discovered that children with a second language are better problem solvers. “It is basically that they are learning to code and decode, so they have a number of solutions to a problem rather than just one,” she says. “It gives them a different way of looking at things. In my own experience, students who study a second language will tackle a problem differently from students with one language – that is because they can look at it from a number >>

of different angles.� Selecting a language can be problematic, and Cross says it comes down to how the learner uses the language for themselves and how it is taught. Dunne says that Italian is one of the easiest for native English speakers as the two languages share many cognates – words with a similar sound and meaning. They agree that character languages, such as Chinese and Japanese, are the most difficult. Dunne says:“They have a different system of alphabet and students have to memorise different vocabularies, grammatical structures and tones. Students who are visual learners are more attracted to or find those languages a little bit easier as they learn by the way it looks.� In some classrooms, language education involves content and language integrated learning – methods where subjects are taught through a foreign language. This year, the Victorian government has funded training for 120 teachers to learn this immersion method.

oroondara in autumn is one of your humble correspondent’s favourite places on Earth, and the annual Decent Exposure autumn expedition is a highlight of the year. Here are some of the colourful folks and the glorious foliage I snapped.

CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT Late April in Glenferrie Road. Is Saoirse, 3, considering Albert Camus’ famous line: “Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower” at Canterbury Station? Probably not, but it’s fun to imagine. I saw this beautiful wall outside Hawthorn Plastic Surgery, but the photo needed more. Enter staffers Jennis Nokes, Jodie Farrow and Bridget Laird. Monika Skubisz never leaves home on lovely autumn afternoons without toy poodle-cross, Mina. Hugh, 18 months, contemplates the beauty of an autumn leaf with grandma Bronwyn Peart, in Lorne Parade Reserve, Mont Albert. Mont Albert resident George Ellul might technically be in the autumn of his years, but he has a spring in his step and a summery outlook. Autumn’s a blast for Hawthorn hams Charlie and Milly, both 5. John Fodor is “51 going on 52”, but he’s a five-year-old at heart when the Mont Albert Road leaves change colour.

NOW AND THEN DARTNELL’S PHARMACY, corner Canterbury and Union roads, Surrey Hills

The Child Care Rebate is NOT income tested

T

he Dartnell’s Pharmacy was established in the late 1800s, and used the 18th century practice known as apothecary. The shop was built on high ground on the corner of Canterbury Road, with the shopfront having vitreous tiling, molded metal window framing, leadlights to highlight windows and a marble threshold. Passing through three generations of the Dartnell family, the pharmacy was given an inter-war renovation in the first half of the 19th century, creating a Moderne facade and adding a cast-iron balconette to the corner. Today the pharmacy still has its original gold leaf signage on the windows, and the federation green wrought-iron work on the verandahs. It has preserved a wall-to-wall collection of apothecary, medical and pharmaceutical antiques from the 18th century, including large oval carboys and medical measuring equipment and containers. In December 1998, the pharmacy frontage and part of the collection on display was shattered when a truck ploughed through the front window. New owners, Les Bassin and Stan Sacks, bought the pharmacy in November 2007 and maintain its old-world ambiance. PRISCILLA MOCA

HYPOXI is the revolutionary and natural weight-loss concept that helps target fat in those areas which just won’t budge. Combining a simple 30 minute work-out with gentle vacuum technology, HYPOXI helps your body to tap into stubborn fat stores while you exercise. In just 12 sessions, clients can lose up to 30 centimetres from their problem areas – more than what you would generally see from conventional training. Hailed as the “lunch time body shrinker” by Cosmopolitan magazine, the gentle 30-minute sessions will leave you feeling energized instead of exhausted! It is perfect for those people needing to kick start their weight loss journey or for those who exercise regularly but just cannot shift fat from their problem areas.

Simons says basketball is where she wants to be BY EWEN McRAE emcrae@mmpgroup.com.au SHE may be just at the beginning of her basketball career, but Emily Simons is a name for the future. The 18-year-old former Box Hill Senior Secondary College student was last week awarded a Victorian School Sports Award and will leave for the US later in the year to begin a four-year basketball scholarship. ‘‘From when I was 13 or so I knew I wanted to go to the States and play basketball,’’ Simons says. ‘‘I trained really hard after my exams last year and it all paid off.’’ Kevin Goorjian, her coach for the past three years at Mont Albert’s BHSSC, has seen her grow into an exceptional talent. ‘‘She’s an exciting player, and someone who stood out right from the minute I saw her,’’ he says. ‘‘By the time she reached year 12 she was a very elite player, a fantastic athlete, and she was heavily looked at by talent scouts.’’

At the beginning of 2012, Simons was selected in the School Sport Victoria girls’ team and as an emergency for the Victorian under-20 women’s team. National achievements include playing for the Bulleen Boomers in the Women’s National Basketball League since 2010 and winning gold at the School Sport Australia Championships. She also co-captained the senior school team to a gold medal at the Victorian College Championships. ‘‘It was a real surprise to win that [VSSA], and it means a lot,’’ Simons says. ‘‘I’m really proud of myself.’’ Goorjian says it was on her second school trip to the US in late 2012 that Simons really committed to pursuing her basketball. ‘‘That trip really got her the exposure she needed, and she got a taste of what it’s really like playing in America,’’ he says. ‘‘That’s the time when most people decide to pursue it, and Emily

came back from the States with a few offers and she was able to settle on one of those.’’ Simons accepted a full four-year athletic scholarship to the University of the Pacific in California, beginning in August. Goorjian says she’ll have little trouble adapting to the college basketball scene. ‘‘She can play a few different positions, she’s very athletic and that’s what appeals to talent scouts over there,’’ he says. But between now and August there’s the small matter of another season with the Boomers. ‘‘My game changed when I went there and I wouldn’t be the player I am without them,’’ Simons says. ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ●

ARI HATZIS

Xavs belt Old Scotch POWERHOUSE goalkicking performances from Brendan Goss and Jake Williams led Old Xaverians to their second win of the year at the weekend, overpowering Old Scotch after quarter time. Goss (seven goals) and Williams (six), ran riot as Xavs turned a five-point quarter-time lead into a 12-goal shellacking, 19.15 (129) to 8.8 (56). Despite kicking with the wind in the first quarter, Old Scotch weren’t able to take full advantage, thanks to a great defensive effort from the Xavs. Instead Xavs took a small lead into the first change, before blowing the game open in the second when their turn with the wind came. Xavs slammed through 6.7 to 2.1 for the quarter to take full control of the contest, with Old Scotch clearly missing Lindsay Gilbee in defence. Nine goals to three in the final quarter was the exclamation point for the visitors, as Goss and Williams helped themselves in the percentage-boosting win. Old Xavs co-coach Dom Berry was pleased to see his team start to hit some form. “It comes down to a bit of consistency with personnel, we’re getting guys back every week from injury which always helps us,” Berry said. Elsewhere, a poor third term cost Old Carey a shot at a breakthrough win against Uni Blues. After leading by a goal at half time, the Panthers leaked 7.5 to 3.4 in the third as the Blues held on to win 15.12 (102) to 14.10(94).

■ OLD BOYS WIN AT LAST Old Camberwell broke through for their first win the VAFA Premier C season on the weekend, dominating Banyule all day. Jack Duke kicked eight goals as the home side ran away with the win, 18.14 (122) to 8.8 (56). ■ SURREY LETS IT SLIP Surrey Park fell away after the first quarter to suffer a big loss to South Belgrave in the Eastern Football League’s Division 4 on Saturday. Despite leading by five points at the first break, Surrey Park eventually lost 21.15 (141) to 12.5 (77). ■ SECOND-HALF FADEOUT Glen Iris-based Old Melburnians were eliminated from the FFV’s Knockout Cup at the weekend, going down 2-0 to Clifton Hill after being level at half-time.

UNDER PRESSURE: Balwyn’s Charlie Hendrie gets a kick away as Rowville players close in

Tigers see off new boys BY EWEN McRAE BALWYN’S unbeaten start to the EFL Division 1 season continued at the weekend, with a solid win over newcomers Rowville. Despite dominating the forward entries and creating numerous chances, Balwyn eventually had to be content with a 29-point win, one that should have been far greater. The Tigers triumphed 17.9 (111) to 13.4 (82) at Balwyn Park for a fourth win in four matches. And with Knox losing by 20 points to Lilydale, Balwyn is now the only unbeaten team in the division. Kicking with a stiff breeze in the first term, Balwyn dominated but led by only 17 at quarter time thanks to some wasteful shots on goal. Shane Tregear got his third goal of

MATCH DETAILS BALWYN 17.9 (111) Goals: S. Tregear 4, J. Gobbels 3, L. Barker 3, M. O’Regan 2, B. Turner , R. McMahon, M. Murray , T. Gilchrist , A. Murray. Best: S. Tregear, J. Goldsack, R. Watts, M.

the day early in the second term to extend the lead and the quarter looked to be following a similar pattern to the opener with the ball barely crossing into Rowville’s attacking half. The visitors didn’t score their second goal until the mid-point of the quarter but were able to nail two

late in the term to keep them within 23 points. Three goals in three minutes in the third term might have killed the contest but Rowville hit back with two in the final seconds to leave Tigers coach Dan Donati fuming. Rowville won the final quarter but it was a bridge too far for the visitors and they fell to their second loss. Luke Barker provided the highlight of the day in the final minutes with a screamer in the goal square worthy of any show reel. Despite the result, Donati was far from happy. “If you take away those goals they kicked late in the terms we win by 50 points and you walk away satisfied,” he said. “But at the end of the day we’re 4-0 and at this time of year a five-goal win’s not a bad result.”

Early goals wreck Camberwell’s unbeaten record BELOW-PAR Camberwell fell to a first loss of the Premier League hockey season at the weekend despite a late comeback bid against Waverley. After going down 2-0 early through a combination of poor defence and bad luck, Camberwell managed to halve the margin but went down 2-1. With the two clubs playing for the Bert Batch Cup, Waverley shot out

BRIEFS

of the blocks, taking an early lead through a field goal after just 10 minutes. Camberwell was without Andrew Philpott, who was making his international debut for the Kookaburras against South Korea in Perth, and his absence in the midfield was noticeable. Waverley’s lead was doubled midway through the half, thanks to an own goal off the stick of Camber-

well skipper Hamish Ridland. He mis-trapped a long pass from Waverley and saw the ball lob over the keeper and into the goals. Aaron Kleinschmidt pulled a goal back for the visitors with a superb run and turn on the top of the circle, before nestling the ball into the top corner just before half time. Despite having the better of the chances in the second term, Camberwell couldn’t find an equaliser.

Camberwell coach Andrew Henderson said the loss of Philpott became more important than he’d anticipated. “He’s been playing in this team for six years so it was a bit of an adjustment we didn’t deal with as well as we could’ve,” he said. ‘‘We were second to the ball, we were reactional, and you can create all the chances you like but if you’re not on the ball you don’t get the outcome.”

■ JAMES FINDS FAME Former Balwyn Cricket Club wicketkeeper Keith James was inducted into the Sub District Hall of Fame at the Hatch Medal Awards last week. James claimed 529 dismissals behind the stumps for the Tigers across 26 seasons and 259 games. He also knocked up 7732 runs including six centuries and 52 fifties. ■ CAMBERWELL TOO GOOD Camberwell dominated the opening half of the State League lacrosse clash with MCC on Saturday, to finish comfortable 18-9 winners. ■ SPOTLIGHT ON THIRDS Old Xavs Thirds will host a special night of footy on Friday, when the clash with Collegians will be played under lights. The round five match will be played at Elsternwick’s Sportscover Arena from 6pm, the only night fixture of the season for the grade. ■ YOUNG HEROES WANTED Former Wallabies captain Nathan Sharpe is searching Australia for junior rugby union players who have gone above and beyond for their rugby club or team, with the newly created Nathan Sharpe Medal. The award recognises the effort, dedication and leadership abilities of individual junior players on and off the field. Details: visit samsung.com.au/ rugby.
