complaints by Frankston firefighters that one of their trucks was 23 years old, male and female members had limited privacy because they had temporary curtains to separate quarters and that a new fire station promised two years ago had not eventuated. Mr Shaw thanked firefighters for their work and said he would not commit to action before reading the report. “I don’t control the purse strings. You know how it is — even at home your wife might control the purse strings. [Emergency Services] Minister [Peter] Ryan has been very proactive about the whole bushfire thing,’’ he said. Pressured by the firefighters about when he would provide a response, Mr Shaw stated: ‘‘I’ve given you the respect of coming out here, now give me the respect of letting me read the report.’’ Last Friday Mr Shaw told the Weekly that claims about response times being impacted by funding cuts were a result of ‘‘typical irresponsible scare mongering by the union’’ and that this year’s CFA budget was the second largest

ever, exceeded only by last year’s budget. ‘‘Frankston is saying they want a new station and new facilities and these are not front-line services. They are not saying they are not able to service the people of Frankston. Clearly, Frankston is not in danger because they haven’t pointed out any life-threatening issues.’’ In response to claims that Frankston volunteers had to wheel their uniforms in from the back shed on a trolley due to a lack of storage space inside the station, Mr Shaw said: ‘‘If that is the case, it’s been happening for years and isn’t a result of budget cuts.’’ Mr Barker said firefighters were disappointed with Mr Shaw’s response. ‘‘We have provided him with examples of actual emergencies and he avoided addressing them. We are disappointed.’’ The CFA spokeswoman said building a new fire station for Frankston was a top priority for the region. The Frankston station would receive five extra career firefighters on Friday.

‘Reverse cuts’: Firefighters from the south-east metropolitan region rally outside Geoff Shaw’s office in Frankston. Picture: Alecia Pinner

G3542640BD-dp23Aug

LOCAL firefighters say government funding cuts are impacting front line services including their ability to quickly access water to put out fires. The Weekly last week spoke to firefighters from the local area, including Frankston, and sighted a CFA internal email confirming that a roll-out of new couplings used to connect water hoses to fire trucks had not been completed by the CFA due to funding pressure. Frankston resident and United Firefighters Union spokesman Geoff Barker said this meant the new coupling hoses often did not fit trucks of neighbouring brigades and all stations didn’t have the adaptors provided by the CFA as a ‘‘Band-Aid solution’’. ‘‘Frankston, Mornington and Patterson River have the Stortz coupling hoses but Mt Martha, Mt Eliza, Langwarrin and Carrum Downs don’t. We shouldn’t have to fiddle around and look for these adaptors,’’ he said. Some stations had trucks with and without the new couplings, another firefighter told the Weekly. ‘‘The hose doesn’t fit the truck and we have no water,’’ he said. A CFA spokeswoman said the couplings roll-out was pre-funded and expected to be completed by 2020, with the south-east region ahead of schedule and expecting completion in 2016. District 8 operations manager Trevor Owen said funding cuts had not affected firefighting capability. ‘‘CFA has instituted a program to update hose couplings across the southern metropolitan region. This phased project has been funded. Adaptors have been issued during the transition,” Mr Owen said. Local career firefighters rallied outside Frankston MP Geoff Shaw’s office last Tuesday week, asking for his support in their call for the state government’s $66 million funding cuts to CFA and MFB to be reversed. Mr Barker delivered a report to Mr Shaw citing examples of how front-line services had been compromised by the cuts. These included

Re: McDonald’s faces fight in Seaford

Food for all

Re: South East Water releases HQ plans

A McDonald’s at this intersection brings the risk of traffic and noise problems and trash ending up at the beach and Kananook Creek. There are two McDonald’s nearby so what possible business can this new McDonald’s claim to capitalise on? In terms of community capital, McDonald’s Frankston is an unsavoury place past 10pm, and McDonald’s on the corner of Ballarto Road and Frankston-Dandenong Road on the border of Seaford is just as bad. The proposed site is an eyesore, but there are better ways to develop it — possibly a hub with cafes and services for beachgoers. Even a licensed premises would be better, a la Mornington at the bottom end of Main Street.

I am writing to thank everyone in our community who took part in our 2012 blanket appeal. This year we received a record 414 blankets and knitted rugs. Our appeal received a great boost and support from Centro Mornington which collected 209 blankets for us together with a quantity of scarves and jumpers. Also as a result of a partnership between Carrum Downs Community Bank, Bendigo Woollen Mills, Janice Bartlett of Needy Stitches and several branches of Bendigo Bank on the Mornington Peninsula, wool was turned by at least 300 knitters into about 150 blankets together with beanies, scarves, mittens and baby clothes.

I can only see benefits for the Frankston community. Go for it!

Re: Baxter’s public toilet inconvenience Not all residents living nearby think having a McDonald’s restaurant on the corner of Seaford Road and Nepean Highway is a bad idea. A large number of residents think any development on that site, which has looked like a tip for the past 10 or more years, is very desirable. Jodi, Nepean Highway resident (via web)

Who said the service station or tennis club or any other private business is there at the behest of every ‘man and his dog’ who wants to use their conveniences that are meant for their clientele? What happened to the free-standing automatic self-cleaning toilet I saw there years ago before Woolworths was built ? Not all of us have short memories.

Great for Frankston — it will be the long-awaited catalyst. Bob Grace (via web)

This is land belonging to the community, yet no public consultation, public sale process or release of sale details has occurred. No community consultation on the future use or building design has taken place. Considering how advanced the development of the design is, [upcoming] information sessions appear to be nothing more than going through the motions. And what planning approval process is being followed? Will local residents and landowners be given their right to voice their opinion on the proposed future use of this public land? Passionate local resident (via web)

Looks great. Along with how the Peninsula Centre is coming along, the South East Water headquarters will be great for Frankston.

Group issues alert on ‘planning abuse’ BY ALECIA PINNER THE Long Island Residents Group is lobbying to have plans for an eight-storey South East Water head office by the Frankston foreshore halted due to a lack of public consultation. Group member and former Kananook Creek Association president Rob Thurley last week released an ‘‘urgent citizens alert’’ about what the group is calling ‘‘South East Watergate’’. The statement said the state government and Frankston Council should ‘‘stop the outrageous abuse of due planning process and the secretive, arrogant and contemptuous treatment of the Frankston community’’. Mr Thurley told the Weekly that the council had become the developer in the process and was setting a dangerous precedent by allowing an extra 15 metres of height to what was usually allowed. Mr Thurley accused the council of secretly making plans with SEW, while discussing plans for a people’s plaza at the site with community groups. Finding out about the ‘‘skyscraper’’ plan-

ned for the water’s edge was like ‘‘having a dream smashed’’. ‘‘We didn’t imagine anything like this would ever happen. This is the most strategic piece of land in Frankston. Jobs for Frankston is not the issue, just put the building where it complies with your own [council’s] planning rules.’’ He said the public verandah would be ‘‘just a forecourt to a shopping centre’’. “If it was your verandah the council would go through all of the risks but in this case they are a developer.’’ SEW held a meeting last Thursday at the Frankston Life Saving Club for residents and stakeholders to view the plans. Project manager Philip Walsh told the Weekly that feedback about the plans had been positive and SEW had negotiated with the council throughout the process. Mr Walsh said the Frankston location would attract more talent than the current office in Dandenong South, which had very little to offer in terms of surrounding food and retail stores. ‘‘I hadn’t spent much time in Frankston and am amazed by what is here, it is very exciting. We

because of the planned extra line to Baxter.’’ A SEW spokeswoman said the cost of the building had not been finalised due to the tender process.

Tributes flow for a ‘wonderful Victorian’ BY LEE OPITZ AUSTRALIA has lost a living treasure following the death of Dame Elisabeth Murdoch. Within hours of last Wednesday’s announcement, news of the Langwarrin centenarian’s passing had spread around the world, highlighting the respect and high esteem in which she was held. Perhaps the closest thing to Australian royalty, the Murdoch matriarch was renowned for her philanthropy, generosity, wit, charm, compassion and hard work. Accolades poured in for the 103-year-old. Flinders MP Greg Hunt said it was a sad day for all Victorians, especially those on the Mornington Peninsula. ‘‘Her loss will be felt keenly by the local community for whom she has been a constant beacon of humanity, generosity and grace,’’ he said. ‘‘At a personal level, Dame Elisabeth was simply a funny, warm and unpretentious member of the local community

She was always unpretentious, charming and caring. She was a beacon of love

and Victoria’s guardian angel. Dame Elisabeth leaves behind an impressive and long-lasting legacy through her tireless philanthropic work and her passion for making the world a better place.’’ Her determination to better the lives of others is best illustrated in her

patronage of more than 100 charities, many on the Mornington Peninsula. She was a generous host of many community events at Cruden Farm, her Langwarrin home of 84 years. Sir Keith Murdoch had bought her the home after their wedding. Peninsula Home Hospice CEO Rachel Bovenizer said the service was privileged to have had Dame Elisabeth as patron. ‘‘We greatly appreciate the generosity that she has shown us over many years. We benefited so much from the astute way that Dame Elisabeth embraced her role as patron,

often demonstrating the warmth and human understanding essential in palliative care.’’ Dunkley MP Bruce Billson said Dame Elisabeth was not only a remarkable woman who fostered optimism and new possibilities, but also an incredibly generous and highly respected local resident. “Dame Elisabeth lived a life of purpose and passion, devoted to her family and dedicated to the many medical, artistic and community endeavours that benefited greatly from her drive and generosity.’’ Frankston mayor Sandra Mayer said the council was deeply saddened at the news. ‘‘Dame Elisabeth generously supported countless communitybased initiatives that could not have survived without her help. On behalf of our community I would like to pass our deepest condolences to the Murdoch family.’’ Students at Elisabeth Murdoch College, known until 2004 as Langwarrin Secondary College, observed a minute’s silence in her honour.

Frankston High School students celebrate finishing the nine-day RACV Great Victorian Bike Ride last Sunday week. There was also an extra reason to celebrate — the students’ enthusiasm, road etiquette and exemplary behaviour resulted in the school being named the best school of all those taking part in the annual event. This year, more than 3000 riders — including 33 students, three teachers and six parents from Frankston High — pedalled the challenging 591-kilometre route from Lakes Entrance to Phillip Island. Despite temperatures ranging from beating heat to freezing cold with rain, the scenery and camaraderie made the adventure well worth the effort, the Frankston contingent said.

Council backflip on residents’ vote BY ALECIA PINNER FRANKSTON residents will no longer have the opportunity to vote on whether capital works projects worth more than $20 million should go ahead. In its first ordinary meeting the new council rescinded a motion passed at the former council’s September meeting requiring a public poll be held to decide on ‘big ticket’ projects, potentially including the controversial Frankston marina and an upgrade to the civic centre. Cr Colin Hampton moved to rescind the motion. He said councillors had been elected by the community to make decisions on their behalf. Cr Brian Cunial agreed, saying the poll could cost up to $340,000. Cr Glenn Aitken was the only person to vote to keep the poll, which was introduced in a motion by retired councillor Kris Bolam. ‘‘I am not a person who is unable to make a decision, however, when a very big money

item does come up that we as a council know will be an encumbrance in terms of rates or changes I want to know what my community thinks,’’ Cr Aitken said. When Cr Aitken asked if councillors were willing to share big decisions with the community, he received applause from the public gallery. Last Friday, Mr Bolam told the Weekly he was disappointed but not overly surprised the council had backflipped on the motion, which was inspired by debate over the Frankston Regional Aquatic Centre. ‘‘I do not subscribe to the view that just because you hold elected office, you don’t reach out to the public on significant projects that could impact upon future generations,’’ Mr Bolam said. ‘‘It is a somewhat arrogant mindset and archaic given a number of Third World countries provide this option even at a local level. ‘‘Already it is clear to me that it is certainly a different dynamic [within the new council],’’ he said.

THE riders may not have been in sleds pulled by reindeer, but there was still plenty of goodwill at this year’s Peninsula Toy Run. Organiser John Smollen said more than 300 bikes travelled from Frankston to Rosebud, with riders bearing cash, toys and packaged food for disadvantaged peninsula families.

The donations will be distributed by the Food for All organisation. ‘‘It was a very big success. It’s a bit of fun every year,’’ Mr Smollen said. There to lend their support were mayors Sandra Mayer (Frankston) and Lynn Bowden (Mornington Peninsula Shire) and St Kilda football club mascot, Trevor ‘Saint’ Kilda. — Sandra Bull

Joyride: Baron Tobias and Rob and Lea Beer distribute Christmas cheer.

Oh, Christmas tree: Bittern resident Rod Eakins won the prize for best dressed bike.

BY ALECIA PINNER A PROTEST against plans for a McDonald’s restaurant in Seaford has gained momentum, with more than 300 people signing an online petition against the move. Helped by a loud social media presence, the Seaford Community Residents Against McDonald’s (SCRAM) group is working to halt the development of a 24-hour restaurant on the corner of Seaford Road and the Nepean Highway. Locals and visitors to Seaford have written letters of support to accompany their signatures on the petition, informing McDonald’s Australia CEO Catriona Noble of their environmental, traffic and health concerns. ‘‘McDonald’s already has a store on the beach in Frankston. There are three stores within a short distance of each other — fresh food and healthy eating habits is what needs to be encouraged, not high salt and sugar processed mass-produced McDonald’s,’’ wrote Carly of Somerville. Bree of Seaford wrote that the development was ‘‘likely to attract unwanted yahoos to the area’’ and pollute the creek and quiet family beach with ‘‘rubbish and late night adven-

— Carly of Somerville tures’’. SCRAM member and Seaford resident Tony Tyrer said the group was determined to ‘‘bitterly oppose the inappropriate development’’. ‘‘We seek to bring this issue to the attention of all three tiers of government. We are angered by the aggressive tactics used by this multinational organisation to steamroll their way through towns, communities and suburbs the world over, leaving a trail of environ-

mental damage and antisocial problems in their wake.’’ Mr Tyrer told the Weekly SCRAM was lobbying higher levels of government in a bid to avoid the planning decision being rejected by the council and then approved by the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal, as was the case in Tecoma in the Dandenong Ranges earlier this year. McDonald’s spokeswoman Skye Oxenham has said the company would work with the council on appropriate designs and consider the area surrounding the site. Ms Oxenham said McDonald’s had engaged expert traffic engineers who had assessed and supported the application and she expected the outlet to open in 2014. The opportunity to lodge objections with the council closed on Monday. A meeting for residents concerned about the plans will be held at the Kananook Tennis Club on the corner of Milne and Kananook avenues, Seaford, at 7.30pm on Thursday. Frankston councillors and Planning Minister Matthew Guy have been invited to attend and guests will include representatives of the well publicised protest group which lobbied against the McDonald’s being built in Tecoma.

INBRIEF Beach contamination high The water quality at some Port Phillip Bay beaches was found to contain high levels of bacteria last week. The Environment Protection Authority’s website reported that bacteria levels at Frankston Life Saving Club beach reached an unacceptable 3100 organisms per 100ml, well above the acceptable level of 150 organisms per 100ml of water. Swimming at beaches with high levels of bacteria can lead to health problems including gastroenteritis, skin or respiratory infections and eye irritations. Beach contamination is caused by rainfall and associated surface run-off to stormwater drains and rivers. High bacterial levels in stormwater run-off and river discharge can also be caused by sewage and septic tank leakages, litter and animal faecal waste entering drains and rivers. The EPA recommends against swimming near stormwater drains, rivers, streams and other outlets into Port Phillip Bay during rain and for 24-48 hours afterwards.

Charge in fatal assault A man has been charged with manslaughter, recklessly threatening serious injury and criminal damage following a fatal assault in Carrum Downs last Thursday week. A 31-yearold Carrum Downs man died in The Alfred

268TC

hospital following the assault on Cadles Road and a 26-year-old man, of no fixed address, was arrested by police and remanded in custody last Sunday week.

House fire investigated Police are investigating a suspicious house fire in O’Gradys Road, Carrum Downs, last Wednesday afternoon. Firefighters attended at 4.30pm and found the brick home fully alight. Ambulance and police officers attended and the fire was under control by 5.10pm. Most of the house was destroyed.

Four times over the limit An unlicensed Frankston driver was caught drink-driving with a blood alcohol level of more than four times the legal limit in Frankston about 11.40am on Friday. Police said they intercepted the driver on the Nepean Highway after receiving a call from the public about erratic driving. The driver, 39, returned a positive blood alcohol reading of .203 per cent. Senior Sergeant Michael Lamb said: ‘‘To have a driver at any time of the day four times over the legal limit is appalling. But to be that impaired and driving at 11.40 in the morning is simply disgraceful.” Senior Sergeant Lamb said the driver would be charged on summons with drink-driving, driving under the influence and unlicensed driving.

achieving excellence, inspiring future lives since 1874

On 16 October 2012, earth moving company Lantrak Projects (Vic) Pty Ltd (“Lantrak”) pleaded guilty in the Frankston Magistrates’ Court to one count of permitting the depositing of industrial waste on an unlicensed site in Bangholme and one count of negligently providing incorrect information to the Environment Protection Authority (“EPA”). The charges were laid by EPA, under sections 27A(2)(a) and 59D(A) of the Environment Protection Act 1970 (“the Act”). The charges alleged that, between November 2009 and 27 January 2011, Lantrak permitted industrial waste to be deposited at Bunurong Memorial Park; and on or about 15 April 2011, in response to an EPA notice requiring certain documents, Lantrak negligently provided incorrect information. Under a contract with Bunurong Memorial Park management (a cemetery trust), Lantrak was supposed to deliver only clean soil to prepare the site for future graves. The industrial waste mixed with in some of the soil consisted of plastic piping, metal, plasterboard, wood, brick, tiles and traces of asbestos. The Court imposed the following penalty in relation to the charges. The Court imposed a conviction and fined the company $50,000 together with $21,425 costs. Under s.67AC of the Act, the Court also ordered publication of this notice in several papers and on Lantrak’s website.

FEATURESTORY

Back into the furnace As the mercury rises, authorities are urging residents and holiday makers in Frankston and on the Mornington Peninsula to do their bit in fighting the summer fire risk. SAMANTHA ROBIN and ALECIA PINNER report. ire Services Commissioner Craig Lapsley is already warning residents and visitors to Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula to be prepared for bushfires this holiday season. ‘‘The Bureau of Meteorology is expecting temperatures in the high 30s and low 40s this summer, with overnight temperatures sometimes only dropping to 20 degrees before rising again,’’ Mr Lapsley says. ‘‘In these temperatures grassland and bushland dry very quickly, including coastal scrub and tea trees, which creates fuel for fires. ‘‘People need to make themselves aware of the local conditions — they can pick up information on fire preparation from visitor information centres or from the CFA website.’’ While it may have felt like a cold winter, October and November were dry. Adding to the potential for a dangerously hot summer, weather and fire risk are returning to long-term established patterns, much like those that preceded the fires which struck in the summer of 1997. The previous winter had been a soggy one. But that didn’t stop the flames roaring through 400 hectares of the Dandenong Ranges and killing three people. Mr Lapsley says in hindsight that particular fire was comparatively small ‘‘but it had a very, very direct path’’. High-risk bushfire areas on the peninsula include Red Hill, Main Ridge, Tuerong, Arthurs Seat, Rosebud, Rye, Blairgowrie, Sorrento and Portsea. He advises day visitors to our region to be mindful of often unfamiliar conditions. ‘‘Someone who lives in the city may not fully understand the dangers associated with bushfires. Simple things like knowing which way is north, understanding where you are and which direction the wind is coming from and knowing the roads in and out are vital. ‘‘On the peninsula, fires are relatively small but they still have the potential to do a lot of damage. The fires can also spread very quickly. In places like Red Hill, the fire might roll rapidly uphill, but even on the southern end of the peninsula it could move quickly through tea tree and coastal scrub. ‘‘People shouldn’t underestimate fire at all. We don’t want to scare people away from the peninsula — we just want them to understand the potential dangers of fires.’’ Mr Lapsley also urges residents to not be complacent and to ensure they have a fire action plan which covers all household members and at what point they would leave their home. One of the simplest things residents could do to protect their property was to clear anything that could fuel a fire. ‘‘There are lots of different

Red alert: Captain Brian Smith beside the button which activates the siren at the Mt Martha fire brigade station. parcels of land. The local council co-ordinates some plans for blocks of land and reserves and also has the ability to order clearances to landowners if they consider a property to be hazardous,’’ Mr Lapsley says. The 10/30 rule, implemented in all but 21 Victorian metropolitan municipalities after the Black Saturday bushfires, allows home owners to clear vegetation around their property for bushfire protection without a planning permit. The rule applies to houses and structures built or approved before September 10, 2009. Clearing for new buildings must be considered through the planning permit process. ‘‘Lots of people still opt not to clear trees around their property, but we have to get that balance of fire safety right. It is not about chopping down every tree, it is about a balance of vegetation and managing fire safety.’’ He says rubbish dumping on vacant blocks creates a huge fire risk which shouldn’t be tolerated. ‘‘Anyone who sees this sort of behaviour should take the time to report it. It is a criminal offence and police will be monitoring this.’’ Mr Lapsley says authorities learnt from the Black Saturday disaster and an array of more reliable warning systems are being introduced. This year, for the first time, Telstra mobile customers in areas threatened by a fire will receive a text message alert. Previously, messages were only sent to users whose billing address was in the affected area. In another initiative, Mt Martha is one of 39 Victorian towns to take part in a pilot program

using sirens to warn communities of danger during the fire season. The state government program involves sirens being used across 13 local government areas to alert communities to any significant emergency or potential danger that could impact on them, such as fire, flooding or severe storms. Mt Martha is the only peninsula town to be included in the pilot, while 28 will be in the fireprone Dandenong Ranges. ‘‘The siren is a way of telling the community to seek further information by going to the CFA website, looking at the conditions outside and being aware there is an emergency in the community,’’ Mr Lapsley explains. Mt Martha residents should expect to be notified about the change in pamphlets to be placed in their letterboxes. Information can also be obtained from the Mt Martha fire brigade. ‘‘There has been lots of commentary in Mt Martha on the use of sirens but we are very confident this is a good trial of another way of warning the community,’’ Mr Lapsley says. ‘‘The siren isn’t the only way of alerting the community, but is one way we can alert people. We learnt from the royal commission that on hot days lots of people close the blinds, put the airconditioner on and shut off from the outside world, so sometimes just taking a look outside and being aware of the conditions can make a difference.’’ Baxter fire brigade captain Angus Mair, who is also the southern metro region fire safety officer, agrees that a fire plan is crucial. ‘‘Around Frank-

ston we’ve got a lot of bushland along creeks and gullies. That’s where the hazard is for residents,’’ Mr Mair says. Locals needed to prepare for fire as the weather was heating up. ‘‘We live in one of the most bushfire-prone areas. Even houses a couple of rows back from the bush can still come under ember attack.’’ Mr Mair suggests installing steel fly screen on windows for radiant heat protection, rather than fibreglass which embers can pass through, checking for gaps in the roof line and ensuring no vegetation is against the house. Other safety tips include cleaning up around the home and not placing plant mulch against timber structures. While firefighters will strive to protect people and property, Mr Lapsley says everyone has a role to play in summer safety. ‘‘The shared responsibility and shared obligation still has to be there. People have to take responsibility for themselves, their actions, their preparedness.’’ The fire danger rating of the day can be accessed at cfa.vic.gov.au and on ABC radio and local community radio. The Victorian Bushfire Information Line can be reached on 1800 240 667 and a FireReady app can be downloaded from the App Store. For updates on fires in your area, download the CFA App, and a brochure on landscaping for bushfire is available on the CFA website. Angus Mair can be contacted on 0407 518 340 for advice on fire prevention and safety at home.

Penbank vice-principal Brenda Karnowski says the school is very fortunate to have a philosophy that was developed in the early years when Penbank was a small community school, and that it was still fundamental to all that is done at the school. ‘‘It values a learning environment where children understand the world around them by exploring and inquiring and where expectations are high, but clear and meet the personal needs of each individual child. ‘‘At Penbank we are committed to using the pedagogy developed by Walker Learning, which draws heavily from international research,’’ Ms Karnowski said. ‘‘It recognises that children require a mix of formal

Ms Karnowski says nothing free or unplanned undertaken at the school and no subject or skill is overlooked or avoided. ‘‘We plan with regard to the new Australian Curriculum Framework and project ahead yearly, by the term and more specifically fortnightly learning intentions,’’ she said. ‘‘Weekly task sheets and individual plans for specific children provide further structures. ‘‘In all, it requires teachers to be involved in continuous thinking and discussion within their teams. Our aim is to provide the best program for children, one that meets their needs in an engaging learning environment.’’

New college meets community needs

Japanese success at McClelland

n what has been a difficult year for the independent education sector, Cornish College has shone as a beacon of excellent independent school education at an affordable price. With its outstanding reputation for sustainable education linked to a highly successful, inquiry-based, concept-driven curriculum, and on a 42-hectare property with a small farm, organic vegetable gardens, an orchard and its own island, this new college offers something unique. The community has shown overwhelming interest in the new college to the extent that the college numbers will increase by 50 per cent in 2013. Added to this, the college’s ICT program (with all children from prep to year 6 having an iPad and all secondary students having a MacBook Air laptop) puts it at the cutting edge of what is sure to be the digital age of education. With the introduction of an innovative approach to its senior

ith the focus of the federal government firmly on Asia and ensuring Australia is ready for the so called ‘Asian Century’, McClelland College is taking its responsibility of preparing young people for the future very seriously. The college has increased its focus on Japanese language and culture and is having some real success. Over recent years the profile of Japanese has been lifted in the school by being integrated into literacy, numeracy and inquiry studies in their years 7 to 8 learning centres. Specialist Japanese teachers work alongside other teachers to ensure the students’ experience of Japanese is meaningful and engaging. The results have shown increased popularity of

school program and its highly regarded International Baccalaureate primary years program, the college continues to attract considerable interest to the point that there are waiting lists at a number of levels. The message is that enrolment applications need to be submitted immediately to have an opportunity for future enrolment.

Japanese electives, success with student results and competition wins. A recent success came from the Frankston Susono Friendship Association Japanese speech competition. McClelland students won five out of a possible six awards in the junior and intermediate secondary sections. In the junior section, Praj Ajjampur won first place, Sabrina Fischer was second and Braden Newbold came third. In the intermediate section, April Sheahan was second and Lachlan Tipping came third. There was also a trophy presented for the winner of the best overall speech on the night, and that was won by year 8 student Praj Ajjampur. Japanese teachers Kathryn Smith and Yoko Mays were justifiably proud.

Creatures live on in scientific artworks BY HAYDN GODONY Museum Victoria touring exhibition, The Art of Science: Remarkable natural history illustrations, has arrived at Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery. The scientific art presentation from the state museum’s seldom-seen collection of artworks and rare books also includes stunning images produced with microscopes, macro-lenses and computers. As exploration and science have expanded our horizons across time and space, the ability to capture the likeness of all creatures, great and not so great, has been a pivotal point in the increasingly complex world of science. Drawings of animals and plants, created before the advent of photography, sometimes remain as the best visual record of life now extinct. Scientific artwork was as important in the 18th century as it is today.

Hawk eye: Red shouldered hawk, from The Birds of America, 1829, hand-coloured aquatint, engraving on paper by John James Audubon.

Whether they fly, swim, crawl, wiggle or walk, we are endlessly fascinated and inspired by creatures. The Art of Science showcases the uncommon beauty produced from 300 years of exacting scientific observation and illustration. These rare books and hand-coloured plates are as translucent and shimmery as the life they depict. The Art of Science is at Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery, Dunns Road, Mornington, from Thursday until February 17. ■ Museum Victoria’s mobile discovery program will be visiting the gallery and The Briars park during the school holidays. Led by a skilled presenter, these sessions enable children to see and handle a collection of mounted specimens. At the gallery: January 22 and 24 at 10am, noon and 2pm.

Peninsula Old Boys had a disastrous first innings against Heatherhill, being bowled out for just 112 off 44 overs. After a top-order collapse the Old Boys were staring down the barrel at 5-20, before John Forrest (39) and Wade Pelzer (25) managed to salvage the innings. Heatherhill finished 3-66. In other matches, Baxter was set to bounce back after last round’s loss by chasing 180 against Mt Martha. Crib Point is in the box seat after bowling out Moorooduc for 131.

Mornington set a tough task for Long Island, making 283. Mt Eliza cleaned out Ballam Park for just 89 and finishing 208 with four wickets in hand. ■ Rosebud’s Danny Helybut suffered a minor heart attack after playing in an MPCA Sub District shield match at Olympic Park on Saturday.

Teamwork bolsters Langy’s attack LANGWARRIN overcame its slow home deck to amass 236 against Seaford in their MPCA District Shield match on Saturday. Langwarrin is undefeated and wants to go into Christmas the same way. Captain-coach Mark Cooper (81) set the tone for Langwarrin forming a fruitful partnership with fellow opener Simon McEvoy (41). ‘‘It was pretty tough going out there, they bowled pretty well,’’ Cooper said. ‘‘We had a pretty good stand in but the ground was pretty slow. ‘‘It was a really team-orientated effort.’’ Langwarrin batted the full 75 overs with its top and middle order standing up against the Seaford attack led by allrounder Chris Cleef. ‘‘Cleef bowled quite well, his off spin

Heat breaks the drought

BY MORGAN COLE SORRENTO is poised to keep its undefeated record after bowling out Rye for 133 on the first day of their MPCA Provincial Shield match on Saturday. The Rye-Sorrento rivalry is always a spirited affair and a new twist was added with former Frankston Heat teammates Darren Groves (Rye) and Nick Jewell (Sorrento) squaring off. Rye chose to bat and was subjected to a fierce Sorrento attack, falling to 6-78 on the way to being bowled out. Sorrento coach Nick Davern was pleased with his bowlers’ performance. ‘‘We just seemed to get wickets at the right time,’’ Davern said. ‘‘We bowled really consistently, Davey Smith and A J [Andrew] King were both really good.’’ Sorrento was unforgiving with the ball, not allowing any big Rye partnerships to form, King and Smith having no trouble in dismissing the Rye batting line-up. Aaron Vernon (26) made a late stand to help boost Rye’s tally before becoming one of Smith’s five scalps for the day. After cleaning out Rye, Sorrento took up the bat facing 12 overs against the Rye bowling line-up headed by Groves. The veteran bowler wasted no time in shaking up Sorrento, taking the wicket of opener Jedd Falck in the first over giving Rye plenty of spark. This was quickly extinguished by Jewell, who was looking very comfortable at the crease, quickly collecting 25 not out before stumps. Sorrento will resume at 1-29 this Saturday.

gave us a bit of trouble,’’ Cooper said. Cooper is optimistic of winning but knows his in-form side will have to work hard to defend its total. ‘‘[Seaford] have some really quality batsmen like Damien Lawrence. ‘‘We just want to get out there and bowl our game.’’ Cooper attributes his team’s success to an improved club culture and a bolstered support network which includes team manager Tim Harper, a former coach at Melbourne and Caulfield cricket clubs. He said the team had come closer together this season and Harper was like having ‘‘another coach’’ for the side. Cooper said his side faced a torrid second half of the season with matches against many of the strongest sides in the competition.

‘‘[Those matches] will let us see where we’re at come finals time.’’ In other District Shield matches, Delacombe Park is primed to overrun Hastings, the Blues being bowled out for 98 in its first innings and Delacombe Park finishing on 1-34 after the first day. Carrum has given Boneo plenty to think about, making 233. Baden Powell has made amends for the previous round’s humiliating loss by setting a 325 target for Main Ridge. Somerville had a pleasing first innings, surviving the full 75 overs against a powerful Pines attack and making 198. Flinders holds all the cards against Frankston YCW after blasting 307 with Nathan Hunt (84) and Tim Clarke (64) leading the way. — Morgan Cole

FRANKSTON Heat finally claimed its first victory in the Premier Cricket Twenty20 competition with a six-wicket win over FitzroyDoncaster on Wednesday night. Heat spearhead Scott Boland was the star with 4-19 as the Lions were bowled out for 78 in trying conditions at AH Butler Oval. In the run chase, the Heat slumped to 3-22 before Sam Wiese (24) and James Miller (22) both scored at better than a run a ball to help their team overrun the total in the 19th over. Heat captain Matt Chasemore, who contributed a measured 18 from 43 deliveries, said his team had gritted the win out despite the pitch throwing up a few demons. “We’ve been close in a lot of games apart from the Ringwood game at Lavington,” he said. “Even on Saturday against Ringwood we took it right to the last ball. “We just didn’t tick the boxes and last night [Wednesday] we did.” Chasemore also threw his weight behind Boland, being given a chance with the Melbourne Stars, where he is a squad member but not on their main list. “He is bowling as well as anyone

at the moment,” he said. “He has just got complete control over the game – I think he got a bit of a wake-up call the other week when Louis Cameron got picked [for Victoria] ahead of him.” Chasemore admitted the Heat needed to lift its performances in the Twenty20 competition in the coming seasons. “We haven’t really focused on it during preseason. We haven’t learnt it and a few of us even sat it out last year to make sure we didn’t get injured. “I guess we will have to focus on it more over the next preseason.” ■ The Heat will need to bowl well when play resumes in the clash with Casey-South Melbourne at A H Butler Oval this Saturday. The Heat batted first and got to 9-219 before declaring to give themselves three overs to bowl against the Swans. But the Swans openers held strong and got to 0-9 at stumps needing 210 runs to get a muchneeded win. Dale Elmi made 83 for the Heat while David Nankervis added 30. Emerging Heat bowler Ben Ashkenazi was last week named in the 13-man squad for Victoria and will play with the Bushrangers in the under-19 national championships in January.

Veteran coach snapped up for mentor role at Sabres BY BRAD McGRATH FORMER Frankston Blues coach Bill Runchey has been swooped on by the Sandringham Sabres. Runchey failed to have his contract at the Blues renewed after coaching the SEABL club for 24 seasons. But the Sabres have recruited the experienced mentor to fill the role of domestic player and coach development manager. Runchey will work closely with players and coaches from the Sandringham Basketball Association. ‘‘We have set a goal to have all our domestic club coaches better educated and certified and we will

be introducing a Sabres coaching licence that will allow for a yearlong calendar of events aimed at continuing to support our domestic coaches,’’ SBA CEO Vince Crivelli said. ‘‘It is an exciting time as people of Bill’s experience and knowledge are not necessarily always engaged at true grassroots levels." Runchey said he was excited about the next chapter in his illustrious coaching career, which includes six SEABL conference championships. ‘‘I’m excited about the prospect, and I look forward to working with the clubs and coaches,’’ he said.
