ommunity policing is like preventative medicine. We can provide information about what is going on in the area and give advice about how to prevent yourself from becoming a victim. A classic example of community policing is when we are doing our car park rounds. At Christmas time we try to stress to people not to leave valuables in their cars but we go out to the car park [and there’s a] laptop on seat, windows down, doors unlocked. We leave a courtesy note on their windscreen telling them it saves police hours if people secure their cars. Neighbourhood Watch started in the early 1980s, and Boroondara has 13 active groups. We are all unofficially part of Neighbourhood Watch. It is looking out for each other and reporting suspicious behaviour. I do want volunteers. If there is a trend of burglaries in an area, I’d like an email list of half a dozen people whom I can just ask: Can you do a letterbox drop to warn people? Another thing we do is education days at schools. At Kew Primary recently I got the Neighbourhood Watch people to engrave the kids’ bikes. We had retired people and a couple of stay-at-home mums helping us. Neighbourhood Watch actually bought us a camera that we use to monitor building sites. We would love thieves to know we have a camera that will catch them. One thing we would like to start is EyeWatch, which is like a police Facebook page. It will not be a vehicle for reporting crimes – 000 is for that. It’s more an information

page. For instance, I read about a robbery in which the woman’s handbag was stolen while she was in a store’s fitting room. She had to get a locksmith to let her into her house, and later she had a call saying ‘‘We are from the store and we’ve found your handbag, can you come

and pick it up?’’ She went back to get it, but the store owners said they hadn’t called her. While she was out, the thieves – who had her bag, her keys and her address – went to her home and cleaned her out. If that happens to you, and you have a call like that, ring the store back.

Police suspect serial attacker after assault BY TERESA MURPHY tmurphy@mmpgroup.com.au

AN EASTERN suburbs serial sex attacker has struck for possibly the ninth time, with the past four attacks in Boroondara. Police believe the same man is involved in eight attacks on young women in Melbourne’s east in the past four months and may be linked to the latest attack in Camberwell. The most recent victim was a

27-year-old Hawthorn woman who on Thursday, November 29, got off a train at Camberwell station and started walking home along Burke Road about 10.30pm. When she reached the Leura Grove intersection she was approached from behind and indecently assaulted. The man fled along Leura Grove after she screamed. Only four days earlier, on Sunday, November 25, a 27-year-old Camberwell woman was assaulted in Can-

terbury. The woman was walking east along Riversdale Road, after crossing over Willow Grove, just after 9pm. After she was grabbed from behind and indecently assaulted, the woman dropped to the ground. The offender then ran off west along Riversdale Road and right into Willow Grove, before continuing north. On December 2, Melbourne sexual crimes detectives set up a caravan in Riversdale Road, Canter-

bury, appealing for information. The last attack was reported to Boroondara detectives on December 4. The first eight victims have told police the offender appears to be Asian, aged in his 20s, has a slim build and is about 178 centimetres tall. However, the latest victim said he was about 172 centimetres tall, of muscular build, with black spiky hair and olive skin and aged in his

mid-20s. He was wearing a dark T-shirt and shorts. Police said the attacker remains silent so it is not known if he has an accent. The offender appears to target women once they have left public transport and are walking along residential streets. The last two attacks were the first on a major roads. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or visit crimestoppers.vic.gov.au.

THAT friendly lollipop lady or lad at your school crossing could be the devil in disguise. Boroondara council is so desperate for crossing supervisors it has resorted to drafting parking officers into duty on school days. The council’s latest quarterly report grumbles about the diversion of its bombers: ‘‘Backfilling of school crossing supervisors on crossings that could not be replaced through the use of existing or agency staff required parking and local laws officers to man school crossings instead of undertaking proactive patrols.’’ The good news for bad drivers is that the officers are not allowed to issue tickets while guarding crossings – children’s safety was first, city planning director John Luppino said.

With 108 crossings but just 69 supervisors, the council wants to boost the ranks to 105 and is offering $18.44 an hour to reliable people available for 45-minute shifts on school days. Julianne de Silva, who guards Valley Parade crossing in Glen Iris, said the jobs were hard to fill because of the short yet strict hours. ‘‘Even for students it would not necessarily work, because lecture schedules might require them to be in lectures at 8am,’’ the former university administrator said. Is she ever tempted to dob in wayward drivers, even though she is not a moonlighting parking officer? ‘‘All we can do is alert the drivers that they are parked illegally and that they do risk a fine,’’ she said. ‘‘The supervisors in front of schools have the lion’s share of difficulties. They constantly face ... people dropping their children off right across the crossing.’’

Roll honour for father, son Two former Boroondara residents, father and son Bill and Lin Onus, are the latest additions to the Victorian Indigenous Honour Roll. Bill Onus began his career as a shearer and rigger, and appeared in several films. In 1952, he founded Aboriginal Enterprises in Upwey, and in the 1950s and ’60s was prominent in the campaign for Aboriginal citizenship and civil rights. He died in 1968. Lin, of Wiradjuri descent, grew up in Deepdene, became a motor mechanic then taught himself how to paint, becoming noted for his portrayals of ancestral country and indigenous artists such as Archie Roach. He died in 1996. At a sale of Onus’ work in Melbourne in 2003, paintings sold for more than $50,000.

Knockback for refugee group BY ALISON BARCLAY abarclay@mmpgroup.com.au

THE migrant services group that planned to house asylum seekers in Hawthorn was refused a chance to speak with residents about the plan, its spokesman says. AMES spokesman Adam Baxter said the group offered to attend a residents’ meeting called soon after the plan to house up to 100 asylum seekers at a former retirement village became public. ‘‘There was a general concern that we had not consulted (with the community). But we started that process and we got overrun by the level of objections,’’ Mr Baxter said. ‘‘We were advised there was a local residents’ meeting. We rang these residents and asked if we could come and respond to their concerns and we were advised we were not welcome. We were blamed for not consulting, but, when

we tried to, we were told no. It was a little disturbing for us.’’ AMES had planned to use a Manningtree Road building owned by the Uniting Church as transitional housing for asylum seekers granted bridging visas on Christmas Island. RL understands about 30 residents signed a petition objecting to the plan on the grounds of safety and threat to property values. But 14 others called AMES and offered to volunteer at the centre. Mr Baxter said the asylum seekers would be housed in North Melbourne and Maidstone. ‘‘The local communities there tend to be welcoming. We’ve had no issues in terms of noise or complaints about behaviour,’’ he said. ‘‘We would like to re-engage with the good people of Hawthorn, give them more information, and make them aware these are genuinely lovely people who are just trying to make a better life for themselves.’’

Who do you call?

WEED BUSTERS: Tim Wright, Kondwani Phiri and Anthony Kennedy are among more than 120 volunteers who overhaul gardens

LEAFY may be Boroondara’s favourite adjective but, when nature runs riot, this is the team to call. The end of the drought has brought a crop of unexpected Edens, sometimes to the despair of elderly or disabled owners. The Rotary Club of North Balwyn got its gloves on, and now more than 120 volunteers head out every week to slash, thrash and tend a growing list of overgrown gardens. Among the volunteers are students working towards their Duke of Edinburgh awards. ‘‘The Camberwell Grammar team is like a demolition crew. They turn up in a bus and go through it like locusts,’’ chuckled the club’s community director, Rowan McClean, who started the project last year. ‘‘We’ve just done Camcare’s community garden and put in six beds so they can grow vegies.’’ The latest volunteers to join are from disability services Eastern Disability Access Resources and Burke And Beyond.

VOX POP WOULD YOU BE HAPPY FOR ASYLUM SEEKERS TO STAY IN COMMUNITY HOUSING IN BOROONDARA? CHARLOTTE SANTALL, 21, Hawthorn Absolutely. There’s such a concentration of refugees in other areas, so it would be a good addition to the community to have different cultures here.

MADELEINE ROVIN, 20, Hawthorn Of course. And it’s better for their mental health to be living in a community than to be isolated behind bars.

SARA D’AMAROSIO, 20, Kew Yes, why not? Plus it’s much cheaper for them to be living in the community than to be locked up.

Report recommends statewide library BY ALISON BARCLAY abarclay@mmpgroup.com.au

LIBRARY lovers should be able to use one card to borrow from any public library in Victoria, a new state government report says. A single online portal would give access to e-books and digital troves of photos, newspapers and heritage material, and a swift inter-library courier service would source and

fetch a book from anywhere in the state. These ideas were offered in the Tomorrow’s Library report, released on December 3, calling for a borderless network called the Victorian Library. The system could collectively save councils and government about $900,000 a year over 10 years, the report claimed. ‘‘(The Victorian Library) recog-

nises that the digital shift fundamentally changes how people think about public libraries,’’ it said. The Ministerial Advisory Council on Public Libraries is doing a twoyear review of library services, to be completed by late next year. The report found that among the demands on Victoria’s libraries were requests for more books in languages other than English, more computers, tablets and e-readers for

public use, longer opening hours and 24-hour online access. Boroondara’s library services manager Anne Holmes, told the advisory council that Boroondara residents were the state’s most active library users per capita, borrowing 2.6 million items in 2010-11. ‘‘Today’s library user expects much more space – to study, to meet people, to use mobile devices – and this needs to be balanced with the

fact that our libraries are landlocked, existing facilities,’’ Ms Holmes said. She warned the state government against shifting the cost of improvements on to councils. ‘‘Local governments provide more than 80 per cent of the funding for this important community service,’’ she said. ‘‘Cost-shifting has occurred for years, dating back to the 1970s when funding was 50/50 between state and local governments.’’

SCOTT MCNAUGHTON

BY TERESA MURPHY tmurphy@mmpgroup.com.au

DRUG offences in Boroondara more than doubled and vehicle theft soared by almost 60 per cent in the past year. The latest crime data for the municipality, for the year to September 30, shows drug offences rose from 129 to 292. The 124 per cent increase reflects a statewide problem. Vehicle theft rose 58 per cent (from 140 offences to 221), and theft from vehicles rose from 1112 to 1210 offences (a 9 per cent increase). Kew and Hawthorn — and, increasingly, Glen Iris — were the hot spots for vehicle crimes. Acting Inspector Joe Connor said Boroondara detectives were focusing on repeat offenders and he hoped arrests were imminent. He

urged vehicle owners to make it harder for would-be thieves. ‘‘We have seen far too many vehicles stolen with either their keys left in the ignition or on the console,’’ he said. The figures also showed a 41 per cent rise in commercial burglaries – from 270 to 382 offences. Chemists and cafes were key targets. Residential burglaries were down 9 per cent, from 810 to 737, largely due to arrests of repeat offenders, Inspector Connor said. Road accidents dropped, with just one fatality (from two last year) and 436 injuries (down from 462 accidents). Assault statistics were stable, with extra patrols and a brawler van on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday nights. ‘‘We have adopted a zerotolerance approach to unruly and anti-social behaviour,’’ Inspector Connor said.

WARNING: Thefts from vehicles have risen 9 per cent

Bike-only lanes up to speed GLENFERRIE Road’s bicycleonly lanes are closer to reality, with Boroondara council chasing a $130,000 state government grant to install textured green lanes on the busy Hawthorn strip. As part of this final step in the process, the council has also asked for $210,000 to install green lanes along Mont Albert Road, Canterbury. Drivers are not allowed to use bike lanes for more than 50 metres and only where necessary to pass a vehicle turning right, to enter or leave a side street, another traffic lane or parking space, or where stopping or parking is allowed, according to VicRoads. Shared cycle/pedestrian paths are also on the drawing board for Gordon Barnard Reserve and the wetlands in Burke Road South Reserve. ALISON BARCLAY

If Boroondara coppers look different next year, there will be a sartorial reason. Victoria Police will introduce new uniforms in May, the first significant change in 30 years. Out will go the light-blue, short-sleeved shirts, to be replaced by a dark-blue variety with optional long sleeves. And, after a long wait, female officers will have shirt pockets.

HAWTHORN Thieves are entering pharmacies during trading hours and stealing perfume, makeup and skincare products. The latest target was Chemist Warehouse in Glenferrie Road, Hawthorn, on Wednesday, December 5. Store owners and staff are urged to be vigilant and to call 000 immediately if they see suspicious behaviour.

SURREY HILLS Twenty-two cars in Surrey Hills had their tyres slashed during the early hours of December 2. The cars were parked in Windsor Crescent and Charles Street. The vandals struck between midnight and 8am. Anyone with information should contact the Whitehorse CIU on 8892 3200.

GLEN IRIS Boroondara police are teaming up with Neighbourhood Watch to alert residents about a disturbing rise in theft of and from vehicles in Glen Iris. Throughout Boroondara, 221 vehicles were stolen during the year to September 30, up from 140 – a 58 per cent increase. Theft from vehicles rose 9 per cent to 1210 offences.

Como aid bid as mansion bleeds BY EDDIE MORTON emorton@mmpgroup.com.au

THE National Trust of Australia (Victoria) has called for community support after revelations that South Yarra’s Como House is in dire financial straits. According to National Trust Victoria chief executive Martin Purslow, Como House has been haemorrhaging up to $250,000 each year, with an additional $1 million needed for urgent repairs. Como House’s existing planning permit has been in place since 1991. Additional restrictions were placed

on the mansion last year after residents complained about noise to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal. “The mansion used to attract about 160,000 visitors per year before planning controls changed its very nature in the early 1990s,” Mr Purslow said. ‘‘Without the income from events, there is not enough revenue to operate the property.” Como House is allowed just four day and four evening events of 60 or more people each year, with only two of the evening events allowed amplified music. The financial

impact of the restrictions has led to up to 12 wedding inquiries a week being turned away, Mr Purslow said. But despite the losses and the fact the Como estate sits on potentially lucrative land, Mr Purslow said the trust would consider selling only “in more pressing circumstances”. “We are not looking at selling the land off to the highest bidder and we are not in the business of running an all-night venue with booming loud music,’’ he said. ‘‘We are looking for sustainable and long-term solutions by changing our dated planning controls.’’ Consultation with council, state

government and residents in recent months showed there was overwhelming support for the house, but Mr Purslow said further community action always helped. Mr Purslow’s calls have been supported by the Toorak Village Residents Action Group. Group president Eddie Young said Como House was invaluable to the community and the group would support any campaign to lessen restrictions on the mansion. ‘‘The Toorak Village Residents Action Group would back any action to reduce controls on Como House if it meant its survival.”

Parking erased for safer cycling TEAGAN GLENANE

BY BRIDGET FITZGERALD bfitzgerald@mmpgroup.com.au

A CAMPAIGN to improve a Beach Road black spot for cyclists has been successful – 10 on-road parking spaces will be removed within days. The spaces are near a curve in Beach Road, Brighton, at the end of Normanby Street, in front of the Middle Brighton Baths. The Beach Road Cyclist group has been calling for the removal of all on-road parking for a decade. A report by the group in 2003 called for parking to be banned on both sides of the road “at all times” or at peak cycling periods. But the group has focused its campaign on the Brighton Baths section since professional cyclist John Cornish died there in July last year. Mr Cornish was riding with a friend from Black Rock to Brighton when he collided with a van. Beach Road Cyclist spokesman Marcel Lema said the spot was a hazard for all road users.

VICTORY SPIN: Councillor Felicity Frederico and Beach Road Cyclist group’s Marcel Lema at the black spot It was identified in the Beach Road Corridor Strategy as a ‘‘multiple crash location’’ with a high rate of cycling injuries occurring when

cars turned into the baths. The Beach Road Corridor Strategy is an accident data report, compiled by Bayside and Kingston councils and

VicRoads in 2011. There were eight crashes, of which four were serious or fatal, outside Brighton Baths between 2005 and 2009.

Greens take tips from Obama’s winning strategy BY CHRIS HINGSTON chingston@mmpgroup.com.au

THE Greens will take cues from US President Barack Obama’s successful re-election campaign. The party is banking on a peoplepowered campaign to re-elect federal Melbourne MHR Adam Bandt on a majority of primary votes. Mr 8 BOROONDARA REVIEW LOCAL

>>

Bandt last month launched his reelection campaign for the 2013 poll. In 2010, the campaign to win Melbourne was hard fought. Mr Bandt won 36.2 per cent of the primary vote, behind Labor’s 38.1 per cent. The Greens relied on Liberal Party preferences to secure victory. Liberal and Labor party members have f lagged the possibility of

DECEMBER 12, 2012

preferencing against the Greens next year. If that happens, Mr Bandt would need to win on first preference votes. The party estimates this would require a 4-8 per cent swing. During the byelection for the state seat of Melbourne this year, Greens candidate Cathy Oke picked up 36.52 per cent of the primary vote. Her bid was seen as a test for

Mr Bandt’s re-election hopes. Mr Bandt said volunteers would be enlisted to convince the Melbourne community to vote for the Greens at the next election. He said the goal was to claim the seat outright on primary votes, which would require convincing thousands of people to vote Green for the first time.

CLIMATE change advocates are calling for more agriculture projects to be included in Stonnington Council’s open space strategy. Councillors voted unanimously last month for a long-term strategy after it was revealed Stonnington ranked second lowest for open space in metropolitan Melbourne. Open space occupies just 6.7 per cent of Stonnington compared with 15 per cent each for City of Yarra, Melbourne and Port Phillip, according to the Victorian Environmental Assessment Council. While sporting and recreation clubs came out beneficiaries of the council’s plan, “nontraditional opportunities” were also identified as ways to make Stonnington greener. Sustainability in Stonnington founder Penelope Milstein said innovative ideas, community gardens and urban agriculture projects should also be investigated. “This is a golden opportunity to catch up to other inner city municipalities such as Port Phillip and Yarra. Rooftops and oddly shaped green patches around dense areas would make perfect locations for these kinds of projects. They are very cheap to create and maintain,” she said. “I understand Stonnington’s lack of land. We have become a haven for developers and left nothing for the natural world.” Mayor Matthew Koce campaigned for more open space during the elections and recently requested an investigation into sinking Prahran’s Cato Street car park to make way for parkland.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR ■ APARTMENT GRIDLOCK The 45 multi-residential projects between Hawthorn and Camberwell railway stations and nearby areas (‘‘Reach for the sky before sun goes down’’, RL, November 21) raise the prospect of increased motor vehicle traffic and gridlock on already very busy roads. Many of the new projects will occupy sites where relatively few vehicles have been registered previously. This includes the Brilliant Hawthorn apartment project in Lilydale Grove, within a few metres of the Auburn railway station that is to have on-site parking for 91 cars. The number of passenger motor vehicles registered by residents in the Hawthorn and Camberwell postcodes – now totalling more than 16,800 – is likely to increase substantially to cater for the estimated 7000 people forecast to occupy the planned multiresidential projects. It makes sense that more intense residential development should be concentrated in areas that have

one block away but in the direct line with The Alfred – the place where stupid cyclists like the ones I’ve described will end up one day as this situation is an accident waiting to happen. By the way, many of the cyclists I’ve seen close up are middle-aged ... surely they can read the very obvious ‘‘Do not enter’’ signs displayed at the corner of Leopold Street and Toorak Road.

good access to public transport. However, it is failing under the current policies of the Victorian government and the City of Boroondara. These policies allow further overburdening of the road network by residential developments, which should be far less car-intensive than is permitted. Housing affordability is also reduced as each on-site car park costs about $50,000 to build, which adds to the sale price of each apartment. Ian Hundley / via email

■ CYCLISTS GET IT WRONG This afternoon I read, with great interest, Ken Anderson’s story and his campaign to improve cyclists’ safety (‘‘Riding the gauntlet’’, RL, December 5). I’d like Ken to come to where I live, Leopold Street, South Yarra, and witness the many cyclists who continually ignore the fact the street is one way and cycle in the wrong direction.

■ MILKY WAY I love milk bars (‘‘Sweet memories’’, RL, November 28). I remember in the late ’60s and ’70s buying Sunny Boys and firecrackers when I was growing up in Keon Park. Twenty cents could buy you the world then. Some of these milk bars had the PMG red phone boxes outside; there were no mobile phones or computers, just old-fashioned cash registers. Let’s not forget the local fish ’n’ chip shop as well. A simpler happier time, that’s how I see it. Robert Aquilina / via website

eeding electricity back into the grid may sound like a new concept, but the former Prahran council was doing it a century ago. In 1907 the council built a refuse incinerator at its tip in Surrey Road, South Yarra, and from 1909 the power generated by burning rubbish was partly converted to electricity. This was sold to the Melbourne Electric Supply Company, earning the council £650 a year. The destructor, as the incinerator was known, was an undertaking for Prahran council, which sent its surveyor to the UK, Europe and the US to inspect 35 installations. A new incinerator was built in 1965. The municipal destructor then became a solidwaste transfer station. In 2006, Stonnington council sold half the

Cats at The Lost Dogs’ Home can be adopted for $95 (kittens $170), are desexed, vaccinated, microchipped and wormed. Please note, Bilbo may have been adopted since going to press, but there are many more cats like him in need of a home.

BRANCHING OUT

North Balwyn’s VIV BENJAMIN is changing the planet as CEO of the Oaktree Foundation

T

eenagers fresh out of high school are usually worried about things such as getting into university or finding cash for the Big Day Out, but not Viv Benjamin. In 2007, as a teenager and as national director of the Oaktree Foundation’s Make Poverty History Zero Seven Road Trip, her major concern was – and still is – ending global poverty. The road trip has become a regular event held in federal election years to bring young people across the country together so that they may collectively voice to major political figures their opposition to extreme poverty. At the 2007 event, Kevin Rudd heard their call and historically committed his future government to an increase in foreign aid from 0.35% to 0.5% of national income by 2015. Five years later, 24-yearold Benjamin is CEO of the Camberwell-based Oaktree Foundation. It’s the latest in an impressive list of achievements, including founding fair trade lobby

group End Child Slavery, sitting on the core decision-making group of the Make Poverty History coalition, and national advocate of TEAR Australia, overseeing numerous campaigns on global poverty, indigenous equality, refugees and asylum seekers, and climate change. The Oaktree Foundation, which Benjamin describes as “a pretty incredible organisation to be part of”, is run by passionate volunteers between the ages of 16 and 26. It began as a garage start-up in 2003 with 30 people and now has a volunteer base of more than 350 people. As a child, Benjamin spent her summers in the Philippines, where her mother was born. She recalls the moment she decided to change the world for the better. “When I was a child in the Philippines, at about nine years old, I saw a little girl who was about the same age as me living in extreme poverty,” she says. “That was a really key moment of realisation for me that neither of us

deserved the chance circumstances that we were born into and that I could do something to change that.” The next road trip is in March, when more than 1000 young people will depart capital cities nationwide, speaking to everyday people and attending events before travelling to Canberra and then Sydney for a final celebration. The road trip is primarily aimed at young people but Benjamin says anyone can be involved in Oaktree’s work.“I encourage everyone to participate in campaigns like Live Below The Line.” Benjamin strongly believes that young people should use their resources for good. “I would really like to see Boroondara’s young people, given that I think we have some of the highest concentrations of private schools in the world, to look beyond Boroondara and have a global perspective.” Details: visit theoaktree.org.

Many are women in their 20s and 30s who want to lose weight and get fit; others are football and basketball players, professional athletes, and teenagers trying to get into sports teams. One-off individual sessions are $65, but some clients may need a couple of sessions and packages can be arranged.

elbourne Zoo has come a long way since the bad old days of tiny concrete cages and elephant rides.These days the animals are housed in pens approximating their natural habitat, with enrichment programs, closely monitored diets and every other effort made to ensure their emotional and physical well-being. One thing that hasn’t altered over the years is the perception that visiting the zoo is for kids and families – but Melbourne Zoo is out to change this with the launch of I, Animal, an interactive multi-media tour just for adults. A collaboration with contemporary performance ensemble The Border Project, the tour takes place at night and offers four different themes, all designed to give audiences an experience unlike any other they have had at the zoo. Participants don earphones to plug into an iPod-like personal device called the ‘‘Zoe’’ which allows them to explore the zoo via a part-audio, part-interactive screen tour. Created by Art Processors, the team responsible for the ‘O’ device I, ANIMAL used at the Where: Melbourne Zoo, Museum of Old Elliott Avenue, Parkville. and New Art in When: daily from 6.30pm Hobart, the Zoe Details and bookings: visit relates interesting zoo.org.au/melbourne/ animal facts and whats-on/i-animal entertaining and challenging episodes from the zoo’s 150-year history, inviting people to reflect

on their own lives in comparison with those of the animals.There is also some audience participation in the form of acting out animal behaviour, which draws on The Border Project’s performance roots and their experience creating I Am Not An Animal, a temporary installation performance at Adelaide Zoo in March this year. “The challenge this time was to create a similar immersive experience, but robust enough to stand the test of time,” says Dan Koerner, who was the director of I, Animal along with Sam Haren at The Border Project. “Each of the four loops that the audience can follow has a particular narrative around how we identify ourselves as humans.” Although I, Animal is aimed squarely at adults, much of the experience is engineered to get participants into something of a childlike state. “We really wanted to design an experience for the audience that gave them space, away from the rat race to stop and reflect on who they are, what has happened in their lives and where they are going,” says Koerner.“To get into this headspace we felt it was important for the audience to contrast their life now as adults to what they thought would happen when they were kids.” While some of the tales in I, Animal amuse – did you know the zoo conducted an official search for a bunyip in 1890 and even readied

an enclosure to house one? – Zoe also delves into deeper topics like death, fear and love and poses some philosophical questions about our origins and future. In this way, the tour takes its participants to visit various animals, as well as a unique personal journey inward. “We felt that it was important for audience members to reflect not just on their own personal experience as human beings but on the human race as a whole,” says Koerner.“This directly concerns our evolution as a species and what might come next for us. Where have we come from as human beings? What distinguishes us from the animals we share the planet with and what might come next for us as a species?” They’re not exactly the kind of questions that might arise if you were taking the kids to see the lions – but that’s the whole point, says Koerner, who hopes the experience will inspire a less traditional demographic to visit and view animals in a new light. “We sincerely hope that I, Animal audiences come away feeling uplifted and that their perceptions of themselves, their place in their animal kingdom and their experience of the Melbourne Zoo have shifted in some way,” he says. “Above all, though, we hope visitors recognise the fragility of life on earth – particularly those we share this planet with.” LEEYONG SOO lsoo@mmpgroup.com.au

aybe it’s the appeal of creating an alter-ego, but uni students love a fancy dress

party. Engineering students and Kew housemates Daniel Labib and Aidan Lister take the fun a step further with their business kigu.me, importing adult onesies from Japan and Korea. The pair discovered adult onesies (which the Japanese call kigurumi) while on a working and snowboarding trip to Niseko, Japan. They saw kids wearing them on the slopes, then stumbled on a rack of adult sizes in a variety store and snapped them up. Back in Australia, their uni mates couldn’t get enough of the loosefitting animal and character suits, and a business idea was born.

But their first shipment of 50 sold in a week, and now they have two locations and six employees to keep up with demand. “It’s just clothing that is funny,” Labib says.“Sometimes a costume can be really uncomfortable, but these are so versatile you can do anything in them.” Labib’s mates have made videos of themselves wearing the suits while skate boarding, wake boarding and even rock climbing. The business was on its feet quickly, and straight away it started its Community Tuesdays, donating money or onesies to a different charity every week. Past recipients include White Ribbon Day, Camp Quality, Epilepsy Australia and the Heart Foundation. “We wanted to share some of our success,” Labib says.“We

CELEBRATING SCHOOL SUCCESS

A REVIEW LOCAL ADVERTISING PROMOTION

LIFE BEHIND THE LENS Blake Borcich is a year 12 student at Xavier College. In 2009, when a young Blake showed his Xavier teacher John Murphy a collection of short films he had made over the school holiday breaks, it suggested an up-and-coming talent. Almost four years later and with five short films to his credit, four of which have garnered 15 state and national awards at film festivals, one could rightly surmise Blake’s talent was nourished and refined through his media studies at Xavier. Blake just loves getting behind the lens. His folio of work lies well beyond the expectations of secondary school practitioners. In truth, Blake’s most recent production, Resistance, is technically of a standard consistent with final year university film production. Resistance (Blake’s VCE Media SAT),

PRESHIL’S FOUNDER HONOURED involved a technical crew of 27 and a cast of three under the direction of this 17-yearold filmmaker. Resistance won Best Drama at the national 2012 Bond University Film and Television Awards and earned Blake a three-year scholarship at the Bond University Film School. It was through his study of media at Xavier College that Blake Borcich was first able to refine and develop his filmmaking expertise. Details: visit xavier.vic.edu.au.

On November 20 this year, Preshil celebrated Margaret E. Lyttle’s 100th birthday. Margaret was the principal for 50 years until her retirement in 1994, and is acknowledged globally as a pioneer of progressive education. She is, by any measure, an extraordinary leader who has had a significant influence on the development of educational practice and pedagogy worldwide. To honour her achievements, Preshil celebrated with a morning of music, stories and the traditional giant cake decorated with green icing, flowers, a golden eagle and our motto,“Courage’’. Margaret is a passionate and indomitable woman who built Australia’s first and foremost progressive school on principles that were well ahead of their time and increasingly accepted today as best practice. Through generations of Preshil students – many of

whom have gone on to be leaders in fields as diverse as law, art, sport, music and science – and through the international impact of her example, Margaret’s influence continues to be felt today and remains at the heart of the Preshil community. The Margaret E. Lyttle Foundation will host an Ode to Margaret public concert on Sunday, February 24, 2013, at the Melbourne Recital Centre, featuring high-profile musical alumni and guest artists, to pay tribute to Margaret’s love of music and performance. Details: visit preshil.vic.edu.au.

Zahava Elenberg’s journey started at Preshil. Zahava’s love of architecture and entrepreneurial spirit were nurtured at Preshil. Our students take a pro-active role in their education. They gain the confidence to believe anything is possible. That’s what makes Preshil unique. A child’s potential is theirs to discover: we help them find it.

LAURISTON’S YOUNG CITIZEN OF THE YEAR

BIG AUSTRALIA GIVES ANJALI A BIG WIN

To say that 2012 has been a busy year for Lauriston Girls’ School co-captain Georgina Davies is an understatement. In addition to successfully completing her International Baccalaureate Diploma, Georgie spent a lot of time volunteering at Inclusion Melbourne, a non-profit disability service provider which supports people with intellectual disabilities. Inclusion Melbourne was so impressed with Georgie’s efforts they nominated her for the City of Stonnington 2012 Young Citizen of the Year Award. Georgie received the award from City of Stonnington Mayor John Chandler in mid-August. Georgie is particularly passionate about the issues surrounding mental illness:“I want there to be an increase in awareness at both a local and national level in regards to mental health and the little things people can do to help out others.” Georgie believes involvement in the local community is important for all.“I would like to see more young people engaging with the community they are part of, whether it is through a non-profit organisation or simply speaking up on issues.”

Ruyton Girls’ School year 12 student, Anjali Bethune, won the prestigious John Button Essay Writing Competition, announced at the Melbourne Writers’ Festival this year. Her essay, Increased immigration will benefit Australia’s future, discussed the positive elements of a ‘‘big Australia’’ and revisited the asylum-seeker debate. As the daughter of a Sri Lankan immigrant, Anjali was able to bring passion and conviction to her writing. Her essay was well-argued and coherent, using expressive and compelling language. Anjali said: ‘‘To win this prize was a great honour, as I believe Australian politics and policy are amongst the most important things in which the youth of this country need to become involved. Many of us will soon be on the electoral roll, and I think it is imperative that we all take advantage of our democratic right to free speech, which many in this world are not fortunate enough to have.’’ Ruyton offers many opportunities for students to excel within the curriculum

Georgie’s leadership skills have also earned her a Collegiate Scholarship at Bond University for 2013. Collegiate scholarships are awarded to students studying at schools recognised for their outstanding Leadership Programs. Details: visit lauriston.vic.edu.au..

BEHIND THE COUNTER After many years in hospitality, including running Espresso 224 café in Camberwell, Nick Angelopoulos decided to “flip the script” and opened 1st Product almost three years ago. Confident and laid-back, Angelopoulos loves the fact that his small store isn’t easy to find. “It becomes like a secret club in a way and people tell people and that’s how it works; that’s something Melbourne really prides itself on.”

A great range of streetwear brands made locally and from overseas. T-shirts by Only, Huf and The Hundreds hang alongside those by Melbourne designers Grand Scheme and Ruler.There are also hats, Danish headphones, Italian

WHO’S VISITING 1st Product hasn’t pigeonholed itself to the younger market; 40 and 50-something guys are just as happy here as high school and uni students. Angelopoulos uses the store’s Facebook page to update customers on new stock. JOANNE SIM

sunglasses and, at the back, New Balance sneakers, Sperry boat shoes and Skills hats. Angelopoulos says streetwear has diversified since its beginnings as an offshoot of skateboarder, hip hop and surf cultures.“It has taken a little bit from everywhere and has almost matured a lot over the years,” he says.“A lot of companies who do printed T-shirts are now dabbling into cut and sew shirts.”

T

he biennial Camberwell South Primary School Christmas Fair was a roaring success on December 1, right down to the engine of the RAAF Roulette that popped by for an acrobatic display. There were thrilling rides, plus gourmet food, not-so-gourmet food, a Lego exhibition, a sideshow alley and thousands of people enjoying them all. Long live the school fete!

CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT When at a school fair, little Alicia never forgets to floss. Dentists look away! The fair doesn’t want for foot traffic, just foot traffic lights. Parker, 11, enjoys the big slide. Asked why he spends the afternoon in a Dunker for Hire cage, Michael Burgess says: “I’m just a loudmouthed parent.’’ While Jessica and Gemma have hair to match their flavoured ices, fellow seven-year-old Lily lets the flavoured ice speak for itself. Three in a Rowe family: mum Catrina, bubbly Lucy, 5, and dad Trevor.

or Raymond Tan and Loretta Lo the most memorable moment of their September 23 wedding day was when they said their vows at Montsalvat in Eltham in front of their family, friends and their dog. The couple then had their reception at The Gables in East Malvern, which they chose for its old-world charm and the intimate atmosphere of the ballroom.“We could see our dearest and nearest feeling comfortable and at home at the Gables, and that was exactly how we wanted our reception to feel,” Loretta says. “Everyone just kicked back and relaxed and laughed the whole night.” Loretta was also particularly impressed with Always and Forever

CAMILLE ELIZABETH BURNS Camille Elizabeth Burns was born on November 16 at 9.32am at Cabrini Hospital in Malvern, weighing 3.736 kilograms. Camille is the third child for Brighton parents Sally and Shane Burns and sister to Isabel, 4 and Violet, 19 months (who was also born at Cabrini). “Isabel is very excited and comes in for cuddles, while Violet still doesn’t really understand,” Sally says. While they chose the name Camille just because they liked it, Elizabeth is Shane’s mother’s middle name.

Dear Santa,

I have been very good this year. Especially at my first year of school – Prep. Would you please bring me a trampoline, Smiggle and a pool?

Could I please have a Cars Lightning McQueen camera for Christmas? Also a remote control car (different to Tom’s), and a new water bottle and lunchbox for Kindergarten next year. I’ve been a really good boy this year. Have a safe flight.

I have been very good all throughout the year. This is a list of stuff I would like for Christmas: Lego Ninjago Ultra Sonic Raider, Lego Star Wars Rogue Shadow and Lego Ninjago Samurai Mech. Lots of love, Hugo

Beattie gets a taste of life on the big stage BY EWEN McRAE emcrae@mmpgroup.com.au SHE’S played more international sport than most 15 year olds but Hawthorn East’s Beattie Goad is keeping her feet firmly on the ground. The junior soccer star has just returned from the Philippines, where she helped the Australian under-15 women’s team qualify for next year’s Asian under-16 women’s championships. It was Beattie’s second tour representing Australia, after being part of the under-13 squad for a visit to Vietnam two years ago. ‘‘That [Vietnam] was a really crazy experience,’’ Goad said. ‘‘It was weird to think I was so young and already living what I’d been dreaming of doing. It was really nerve-wracking but it was also really fun. ‘‘This second time was different, more competitive but I still had the same sort of exhilarating fun.’’

Australia won all three games they played in the Philippines, beating Thailand 5-1, Myanmar 5-0 and the host country 8-1. Goad played the second half against Thailand and the full match against the Philippines. ‘‘I thought I played really well against Thailand. I just really wanted to get out on that pitch and do well,’’ she said. ‘‘And the third game was just really fun. It wasn’t that hard so we were able to just have fun as a team.’’ While winning the games was a highlight, Goad said just representing her country was a special reward. ‘‘The first time we all stood together on the pitch to sing the national anthem was pretty amazing,’’ she said. Goad, an attacking midfielder or winger, has progressed steadily through club football since she was five, and is now part of an Australian Institute of Sport training squad. She’ll remain part of the AIS squad

in the lead up to the Asian Cup, which will be held in China in November 2013. ‘‘There’s a squad of about 30 to 35 of us [at the AIS], and the squad for the Asian cup is about 23 so we just keep on trialling and, hopefully, I make the cut,’’ Goad said. Goad has been boarding at Lauriston Girls’ School this year so she has taken a step back from club football, but she’s hopeful of continuing her football education soon. ‘‘Next year I’m hoping to play for the National Training Centre and also getting to train with the Melbourne Victory girls,’’ Goad said. ‘‘I’ve trained with them a couple of times so I hope I made a good impression.’’ ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ●

ARI HATZIS

Magpies call on bowlers again CAMBERWELL’S bowlers will again have to defend a small total on the second day of the Premier Cricket match with Footscray Edgewater. After being sent in at Merv Hughes Oval on Saturday, the Magpies failed to capitalise on a good start and were bowled out for 174. Footscray made 0/21 by the close. Alex Stanley and Marcus Berryman did what few Camberwell openers have been able to manage this year and built a solid partnership to lay the foundations for the middle order. But when Stanley fell for 27 with the score on 44, it sparked an alltoo-familiar collapse which saw the the Magpies lose 5/25. MEANWHILE, inspired bowling spells by James Pearson and Jack McNamara ripped the heart out of Hawthorn-Monash Uni’s middle order to give the Magpies a first T20 win of the season. Camberwell bowled the hosts out for 110 before completing a successful chase for the loss of two

wickets. Spinner James Bett removing the Hawks’ dangerous David Alleyne (8) early before Jake Marnie (23) and Will Tavare (20) threatened to take the game away from the Magpies. But Pearson caught and bowled Tavare and McNamara had new batsman Daniel O’Shea stumped and also removed Marnie. Pearson finished with 4-17, while McNamara bagged 3-18. In reply, Camberwell’s muchmaligned batsmen stood up, building on a strong 48-run opening stand between Marcus Berryman (17) and skipper Simon Hill (57 no). The chase was completed with seven balls to spare. Hill played a beautifully paced innings of 57 off 55 balls, and was well supported at the end by Tom Russ who made 28. Young reserved special praise for Pearson. ‘‘He was sensational,’’ he said. EWEN McRAE

BIG HIT: Camberwell opener Marcus Berryman takes a huge swing in his innings of 17 in the T20 win over Hawthorn-Monash University

Koonung falls short in chase KOONUNG Heights left too much to too few and fell 30 runs short of the target set by St David’s in the Wilson Shield cricket clash on Saturday. After bowling out St David’s for 242 the previous week, only four Koonung batsmen reached double figures in a total of 213. The hosts lost Jarryd Barry (4) early before a 34-run stand between skipper James Fenner (14) and Ben Styles (34) got them back on track. When Fenner fell and new batsman David Blashki made a duck, the innings fell apart. Simon Rashleigh made a stylish 53 but wickets continued to fall at the other end. Bill Karametos smashed five boundaries and three sixes in his 65, but when he fell with the score on 204 the home side’s fate was sealed. The loss leaves Koonung Heights with just one win in the opening five rounds and facing fourth-placed Blackburn North in the final game before Christmas.

MATCH REPORT

BRIEFS

Middle order frustrates Balwyn BALWYN will face a difficult chase on Saturday after failing to contain Noble Park’s middle order in the Sub District clash at Balwyn Park at the weekend. Mevan Fernando hit a sparkling 105 to guide the visitors to 252 as Balwyn took wickets early and late but struggled through the middle overs of a hot and windy day. The day started well for Balwyn, with Michael Tuohey trapping Darren Seccull in front on the first ball of the game to get the home side off to the perfect start. Another wicket to Tuohey and then a run out gave Balwyn complete control of the game at 3/25, but from there Noble Park started to rebuild. Doyne Pereira made just nine but shared in a crucial 54-run stand with Fernando. Then followed a 113-run partnership between Fernando and Noble Park skipper Marasinghe Perera. When Perera fell to Clint Keenon for 69 to have the visitors 5/194, Noble Park still looked set for a big total. But Balwyn dug deep in the final hour to slow the scoring rate. Tuohey got Balwyn another run out, and then Keenon dismissed Fernando soon after he reached his triple figures. Some late hitting from Rizan Mawzoon was all that stopped

■ SURREY THRILLS Surrey Hills scored an amazing victory in the ECA Dunstan Shield clash with East Doncaster on Saturday. Chasing 342, Surrey Hills passed the target in the second last over. Arosha Perera (107) and skipper Daniel Lear (86) did the bulk of the damage, as Surrey Hills made 5/354 from 79 overs. ■ TIGERS START AT HOME Balwyn kicks off its Eastern Football League premiership defence with a round one meeting with East Ringwood in 2013. The Tigers will be at home for the match on April 13.

HOWZAT? Balwyn wicketkeeper Alex Tsesmelis appeals without luck for LBW against Noble Park’s Doyne Pereira Balwyn running through the visitors as the rest of the tail offered little resistance. Keenon finished with 3-78, while Tuohey picked up two late wickets to end the day with 4-50. Balwyn captain Ben Hanley said the game was evenly poised. “It was a good wicket so they probably could have got more than

250,’’ he said. ‘‘It’s one of those scores where the bowlers are always in the game but if you bat well you should be able to score three runs an over to make 250.” AN unbeaten 128 from Ben Cookson put Kew in a dominant position after the first day of its away match against Ivanhoe on Saturday.

Cookson capitalised on an opening stand of 89 from Steven Baldwin (33) and Daniel Gledhill (72) to guide his side to 311 by the close. Ben Waterman (43) was the only other Kew player to reach double figures but with Cookson in blistering form it didn’t matter as Kew looks to get a stuttering season back on track.

Demons feel the heat as Malvern roasts pitchers MALVERN’S hitters took full advantage of some wayward Melbourne pitching to hand out another hiding in Vic Summer League women’s baseball on Saturday. On a hot and windy day that wasn’t conducive to good pitching, Melbourne’s youngsters struggled again and Malvern put them to the sword with an 18-0 victory. As they’ve done a lot recently, Malvern started the game with Ash Da Silva on the mound. While she was a bit off early, giving up a couple of walks, she was still able to get two strikeouts to keep scores level. Rachel Limburg started on the

■ RICKARBY FIGHTS BACK Tom Rickarby responded to being dropped from Camberwell’s First XI in the best possible way with a composed 75 in the Premier Cricket second XI match against Footscray Edgewater on Saturday. All Camberwell’s batsmen got starts as they made use of the fast Camberwell outfield to post 6/339 from the 90 overs.

mound for Melbourne and also began well, thanks to some good fielding that ran out two Malvern batters with the score still at 0-0. And while Da Silva was again able to keep a clean sheet in the second, the same couldn’t be said for Limburg. She gave up several walks before handing over to Charmaine Neate mid inning as Malvern plated six runners to take control. Melbourne did get two runners on base in the third but couldn’t bring them home as Malvern’s ground fielding and strong pitching strangled the visitors. Neate pitched the third innings

but couldn’t keep the runs down as Malvern ran rampant, plating the maximum seven to take a 13-0 lead into the fourth. Da Silva then handed over pitching duties to Clare Whittam, who pitched the final two innings for the home side, maintaining the clean sheet in a dominant display of speed and curve balls. Melbourne changed pitchers again in the fourth with Liz Vargiu taking to the mound, but the result was the same with Malvern getting another five home to complete the rout. Melbourne coach Randall Vavra said he was pleased his team was

able to keep it tight early but, ultimately, his players weren’t up to Malvern’s standard. “Again, it was the walks that were the problem,’’ he said. ‘‘You can’t give up that many and expect to win unless you’re getting them back, which we weren’t.” Malvern coach Ursula Howard said her players were feeling good about their form as they sit in third place nearing the halfway point of the season. “We have a lot of pitching depth and a lot of versatility in a few positions so it’s looking to come together pretty well,” she said.

■ ASHBY GETS A NUMBER Balwyn North’s Jason Ashby will wear number 14 when his AFL career with Essendon begins next year. The number was vacated by Sam Lonergan, who was delisted by the Bombers at the end of October after 79 games. ■ YOUNG DEMONS PICKED A number of Melbourne Baseball Club junior players were selected for Victoria last week, ahead of January’s national championships. Alexander Barling and Harvey Edmanson made the under-14 squad, Joseph Hoevener and Justin Limburg made under-16, and Daniel Beattie, Thomas Shiels and Jack Scheffer were selected for the under-18s. ■ BISBY FOR EAGLES Louisa Bisby will coach Boroondara Eagles soccer club in the womens State League 2 in 2013. Bisby plays for Melbourne Victory and is the reigning women’s premier league MVP. ■ HITTING THE HEIGHTS Kew Heights and MCC split the rinks in their division one bowls match on the weekend but Kew took the win 14-95 to 4-66. It was Kew Heights’ fourth win of the season.
