the future of Hawthorn Secondary College to make sure the new school is moulded to the needs of Stonnington. Education providers and community members need to attend meetings and be involved in the discussions for Hawthorn. The community must shift their focus to the future of Hawthorn before thinking about adding another high school. We should be looking at

improving what we already have, rather than building another school. Hawthorn Secondary has the potential to be a school of international importance. And with a more holistic approach from Stonnington, Yarra and Boroondara municipalities, we could provide a real alternative to private education.

fear that the Stonnington community is being distracted by a campaign for a new Prahran high school, led by the local member Clem Newton-Brown. Stonnington’s interest in Hawthorn Secondary College runs contrary to Clem Newton-Brown’s agenda. But if the community of Stonnington threw its weight behind Hawthorn, we could have access to an internationally successful education facility sooner rather than later. Hawthorn Secondary’s existing site is first class and state-of-the-art. The only thing letting it down is its facade – nothing a good paint job won’t fix. The Prahran site is not ideal for a new high school and I believe that despite the efforts of the local community, it will not produce a suitable facility for all students. Unlike Hawthorn, the old Swinburne site has no sporting facilities and there is a real possibility that the site could be shared with another institution. It is no secret that other TAFE institutions are looking at the site. That said, the Prahran site would make a great community school location. Community schools cater well for families that have disadvantaged backgrounds. What both Stonnington and parts of Boroondara need is a highaspiration school with a diverse range of subjects. I believe there is space for both a community high school in Prahran and a larger high school in Hawthorn, but the Stonnington council and the community need to step in and declare their interest in

VOX POP WOULD YOU LIKE GREVILLE STREET TO BECOME A PEDESTRIAN MALL? ROBERT ROGERS, South Yarra If they put a new car park in, it would be a good idea. That way people could get out of their car, have a cup of coffee and get in their car and get to where they are going.

TOMMY CHAU, Melbourne No. It seems like it’s a good access way to Queens Way.

LAURA PATON, Richmond Yes, that’s a good idea. It’s pretty congested when the cars try to get through anyway, and it’s a pretty popular walk-through spot. It would be a good thing.

Slowdown bid on a roll MELBOURNE motorists could be slowed to 30km/h in popular pedestrian zones. Stonnington’s Cr Sam Hibbins said Melbourne and Yarra councils had shown support for the reduced speed limit at recent Metropolitan Transport Forum meetings. The forum recommended the lower limit in a submission to the 2013-14 state budget, citing 30km/ h zones as a “longer term goal in areas of high cyclist and pedestrian activity”. Cr Hibbins said Greville Streett, Prahran, was a prime candidate for the limit. “The lower speed limit would help keep kids safe on their walk to school and further encourage people to walk and cycle.” He is also calling for 10km/h shared bicycle and pedestrian zones around the Chapel Street and Greville Street precinct. “I would like to see areas where bicycles and pedestrians have priority over cars,” he said.

Groups unite in Orrong Rd fight

antly inhibit crossing traffic. “We like the idea of a mixed-use thoroughfare,’’ she said. EDDIE MORTON

COMMUNITY groups have united to oppose a high-rise development proposal in what they are calling “a watershed case of great importance to every Victorian’’. The groups are calling for a public show of strength behind Stonnington council when it goes to the Supreme Court to oppose Lend Lease’s plan for Orrong Road. Stonnington is appealing against the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal’s decision to allow Lend Lease’s 590 Orrong Road planning application. Lend Lease wants to build 466 dwellings in 19 buildings up to 13 storeys high. Stonnington refused the application but VCAT overruled it, despite receiving 450 objections. Armadale’s The Orrong Group wants a big turnout at the Supreme Court appeal on April 16 and 17.

Orrong Group spokeswoman Margot Carroll said: “It’s an issue not just for the people who live around the development site or for Stonnington, it is for all Victorian residents involved in planning applications.’’ The Orrong Group wants community objection entrenched in VCAT policy as carrying great weight. In a last ditch attempt at mediation, Stonnington council submitted an amendment to the planning scheme requesting reduction in density to 250 dwellings and height controls of 17 metres. Planning Minister Matthew Guy has until April 24 to consider the planning amendment. A planning department spokesman said: ‘‘[We] are awaiting the outcome of the Supreme Court hearing about the planning permit, set down for 18 April. Once we get the decision we will be in a more informed position to make a recommendation for [amendment] C153.’’

Rating Report, which was introduced last year to help drive improvements in the quality of education and care. The new system also aims to provide families with more information to choose services for their child’s early education. The 84-year-old Mayfield Avenue kindergarten, which caters for up to 65 children, was one of the first in the country to be selected for the

assessment and it exceeded national standards in educational and program practice, children’s health and safety, physical environment, relationships with children, staffing arrangements and partnerships with families and communities. Little St Margaret’s director and educational leader Julia Cornelius said she was delighted with the outcome. ‘‘We were all very pleased and almost surprised that we had

exceeded standards in several areas,’’ she said. ‘‘We have a welcoming and intimate environment, small class sizes and a high teacher-to-student ratio. We pride ourselves on our educational philosophy that play is the work of early childhood.’’ Results of the National Quality Assessment and Rating Report are expected to be published next month.

CHILDREN living in Prahran’s public housing estates are getting their last ride on the Prahran Adventure Playground’s flying fox. Work to improve the playground facilities starts this month, 28 years after it opened. The state government and the City of Stonnington contributed $150,000 each to the $300,000 renovation bill. The project includes a new kitchen, a basketball half court, additional play zones, a hammock, climbing net and toadstool seats. Stonnington council chief executive Warren Roberts said the flying fox would be removed to create play areas. Tahlia and Aydin have used the playground since moving to Prahran five years ago. “We do not want the flying fox to be removed, we just want the playground to be bigger,” Aydin said. The playground is in the Horace Petty Estate, which is earmarked for redevelopment in 2015.

Charles leads the charge in an era of centenarians BY LEXI COTTEE lcottee@mmpgroup.com.au

TON UP: Charles Rennie of Toorak has received his letter from the Queen

THE number of Victorians aged over 100 has rocketed in the past 41 years, according to the latest Australian Bureau of Statistics figures. When ABS began collating figures on centenarians in 1971, just 61 Victorians were aged 100 or more. As of June, 2012, there were 954. As a result, the Australian government is giving increasing recognition to “super-centenarians”, or people who live beyond 110. What was once a rarity is now an increasingly common milestone in Australia, with life expectancy ranked among the highest in the world, according to the United Nations. On March 31, Toorak resident Charles Rennie received a letter from the Queen congratulating him on turning 100. It was one of many official letters recognising the signi-

ficance of the day for the Kew-born centenarian. Last year the ANZ Retired Officers’ Club held an afternoon tea with ANZ chief executive Mike Smith to acknowledge Rennie’s 31 years with the company. In his time at the bank he experienced two bank mergers, the second under his stewardship as managing director of Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Ltd. He’s also lived through both world wars and flew three times on the now retired supersonic jet, the Concorde. Mr Rennie said he was in good health with a happy marriage of 30 years to Joy, 92, and a burgeoning family to thank for keeping him spritely. “Rarely a day in the week goes by where we don’t go out for a coffee,” he said. As for this year, he said he’ll be content spending time with his 10 great-grandchildren.

Drunks ‘abuse’ ambulance system BY BRIDGET FITZGERALD bfitzgerald@mmpgroup.com.au

MANY ambulance call-outs for drunks are an “abuse of resources”, according to a union chief. Ambulance Employees Association Victoria secretary Steve McGhie said paramedics could be held up from other jobs because they had to stay with the intoxicated person until they were safe. “If they are OK and friends and

family are present, they can be left in their care,” he said. “But if they are alone or in imminent danger, then they are taken to the [emergency department].” He said it often wasted paramedics’ time and hospital time. “It’s almost an abuse of these resources – it’s very frustrating.’’ A 2010-11 Ambo Project report by Ambulance Victoria and drug and alcohol group Turning Point found there were 281 alcohol-related

attendances in Stonnington in 2010-11. Another 2011 Turning Point report found alcohol-related call-outs only resulted in a trip to the emergency department about half the time and actual admissions about a third of the time. Paramedic Alex Vella said that from Thursday to Sunday, alcoholrelated call-outs made up 30-40 per cent of his jobs in inner Melbourne. On a recent call-out, Mr Vella was sent to attend to a drunk 18-year-old

instead of an elderly person who had fallen and was unable to get up. He said the problem was with the ambulance dispatch system. “Someone who is not quite conscious – because they are drunk – is classed as an overdose, and a high priority. An elderly person who has had a fall – if they are not really injured – is low priority.” The dispatch system will be a focus of paramedic enterprise bargaining agreement negotiations.

Prahran MLA Clem NewtonBrown has hit back at claims his campaign for a new Prahran high school on the Swinburne University site runs contrary to Hawthorn Secondary College’s future development. Prahran member of the Hawthorn Secondary College school council, Nick Hayward, said Mr Newton-Brown’s campaign was distracting the Stonnington community from the issues facing their closest public education provider. “There is simply not the site for a high-aspiration school at Prahran,’’ Mr Hayward said. “I fear the success of Hawthorn Secondary is running against Clem Newton-Brown’s agenda.” Mr Newton-Brown said he would continue his campaign because: “Stonnington is the only electorate in the state that does not have its own local secondary school”. He also said public transport was a major hurdle for local students. “It is not fair that local families have to send their children outside of our community to access state secondary education options.” Mr Hayward also called on Stonnington council to reconsider a community bus service for students at Prahran’s public housing estates to the Hawthorn campus. “I would like to see Stonnington council commit to students in their area that are already crossing over to Hawthorn Secondary,’’ he said.

Illegal dumping call to arms BY LISA HIGGINSON lhigginson@mmpgroup.com.au

STONNINGTON council is calling for help as it cracks down on illegal rubbish dumping and tries to reduce the estimated $90,000 a year cleanup costs. An online forum has been launched by the council asking for community input to help find ways to tackle the ongoing problem. The council is also considering the introduction of a hotline for residents to report incidents. There were 1707 reports of illegally dumped hard waste in Stonnington during 2012-13. Council chief executive Warren Roberts said there was no acceptable reason for people to dump rubbish. ‘‘Illegal rubbish dumpers know they are doing the wrong thing,

whether it’s tradespeople or home owners who secretly dump their rubbish in car parks or alleys during the night or people who dump their rubbish on the footpath just as they move out,’’ he said. Stonnington residents are provided with two hard waste collections per year – one each in spring and autumn. Those who illegally dump rubbish risk an on the spot fine of $281, while a conviction at court could lead to a fine of up to $5633. However, Mr Roberts said it was difficult to track offenders down. ‘‘The council appeals to residents to be watchful for illegal rubbish dumping,’’ he said. ‘‘If offenders know residents are watching, they are less likely to ... dump their rubbish in our neighbourhoods.’’ To provide feedback , visit stonnington.vic.gov.au/connectwithus

Crossing upgraded

Principals to vote on work bans BY DAN MOSS dmoss@mmpgroup.com.au

SCHOOLS could be crippled by industrial action in May now that principals have won their fight to hold a ballot on further action. The Fair Work Commission gave the go-ahead for the ballot, stating that principals had been seeking to resolve a log of claims that had been discussed at more than 30 meetings with the Education Department since May 2011. The Australian Principals Federation will have the Australian Elect-

oral Commission hold a ballot of its roughly 900 members to gauge their support of 19 work bans. One ban halts participation in National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy testing. Others could mean stopping correspondence with the Education Department unless it affects staff welfare, and stopping other school and principal evaluation. The ballot will occur this month. The Federation’s executive will then decide which of the bans the membership approves. An outcome is expected by May 3. Federation

president Chris Cotching said his message to parents was that this was action they had to take. “We’ve got no alternative but to demonstrate to government that we’re not going to contribute ... to support their objectives if they’re not prepared to provide some reciprocity.” He said the education department would have to find ways to cover any gaps in school management. Principals are seeking roughly a 12.35 per cent wage rise over four years, with a $2500 sign-on payment. They also want six weeks of

sabbatical leave after five years’ service and recognition of extra workloads. Their negotiations and actions are separate to the industrial actions of the Australian Education Union, which has held three strikes in pursuit of a resolution of their Enterprise Bargaining Agreement negotiations. The Commission ruled in favour of the principals as it stated they were seeking to resolve the protracted negotiations. The state government stated in late March it would not comment further on EBA negotiations with the APF and AEU.

Carbon threat to patient care BY LISA HIGGINSON lhigginson@mmpgroup.com.au

MONEY that could be spent on patient care would be needed to pay future carbon tax bills, according to Alfred Health. Latest figures released by Victorian Health Minister David Davis reveal the federal carbon tax had cost Alfred Health $403,000 in extra energy costs in the past six months. The figure comes after the Health Department did a detailed analysis of energy consumption, finding 12 per cent of the Prahran-based organisation’s energy cost was attributable to the carbon tax. Alfred Health spokesman Corey Nassau said services had not been directly affected by the carbon tax in 2012-13, but it was likely they would in future. ‘‘The continued carbon tax on energy can only mean that funds which would otherwise be available for patient care will instead be needed to meet the cost of the tax,’’ Mr Nassau said. Mr Davis said the carbon tax had cost the Victorian public health-care system $6.7 million in the six months to January. ‘‘The Victorian Coalition government wants our hospitals to spend their money on treating extra patients rather than an energy hike,’’ he said. ‘‘The government has a range of initiatives underway to improve energy efficiency and reduce the carbon intensity of the public health-care system.’’

A LONG-awaited project to improve safety around South Yarra Primary School is due to begin this month. The $600,000 state government works will improve the right-turn traffic movements in and out of Pasley Street North at the intersection of Punt Road, which has been the site of numerous accidents. Around 270 primary school children pass the intersection each school day. VicRoads plans to remove the pedestrian-operated signals and install automatic traffic lights. Prahran MLA Clem NewtonBrown said Citywide Service Solutions Pty Ltd had been awarded the contract for the work. ‘‘With the primary school only metres away from the intersection, ensuring the safety of our most vulnerable road users is our highest priority,’’ Mr Newton-Brown said. The project is expected to be completed in June. LISA HIGGINSON

Safety work for dangerous trio

SCOUT’S CORNER To find new bands, a talent scout must follow the beat … which, sometimes, leads straight to the school gates. ‘‘We see who’s in the school music programs,” says Pat, one of 12 young organisers of this weekend’s Live and Local concert showcase in Camberwell. “Some of the best bands start at high school and carry on after they go to uni.” Live and Local features an all-day music stage for bands such as The Cult of Marcus Aurelius (pictured) as well as short films, bicyclemaintenance workshops and interactive art. It will be held at the park outside Camberwell Library, 340 Camberwell Road, from 11am to 4pm on Saturday, April 13.

THREE road-safety projects will be completed this year on highrisk south-eastern junctions. The expanded Safer Roads Infrastructure Program will spend $1 billion over 10 years to reduce the annual road toll to fewer than 200. The program also tackles the rate of serious injuries from road accidents. The Transport Accident Commission-funded VicRoads program was expanded from $650 million last month. At the junction of Waverley and Chadstone roads, the pedestrian crossing will be moved, the right turn lane extended and a right turn arrow installed in May at a cost of $182,000. At Commercial Road’s junctions with St Kilda Road and Punt Road, green bike lanes, signs and paving will be installed by August for $250,000. DAN MOSS

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR ■ GHOST TRAMS ON BOARD Has anyone noticed the increased prevalence of ghost trams in our public transport system? I regularly catch the number one tram around the city. While waiting I keep an eye on the electronic board as it counts down: five minutes to arrival, three minutes, one minute and so on. When the tram arrives the board is meant to note that the tram is due ‘‘now’’. But several times recently the boards have said the tram has arrived – when it clearly hasn’t – and has reset to advise that the tram is five minutes, nine minutes and (on one occasion) even 17 minutes away. I believe there is a parallel, invisible public transport system accessible only to the phantom population of Melbourne, miserable spectres doomed to ride unreliable buses, trains and trams for eternity. I wonder whether they, too, have to use myki. That would be hell, indeed. Doug / via email

■ RECLAIM THE ROAD They say absence makes the heart grow fonder, but when it comes to fewer SUVs on the roads, I’m certainly not missing them. During this school holiday period it is taking me about 20 minutes less than usual to get to work in the morning, and – extra bonus – I can actually see around corners! Usually my route to work is clogged up with Toorak tractors driven by parents dropping kids off at school. I know SUVs might be safer for the driver, but they are a serious vision impediment for drivers of vehicles of normal height, and, I dare say, in most cases an extremely unnecessary purchase. Margaret / via email ■ THANK YOU, VICTORIA Almost 6000 Victorians registered and braved the shave for the Leukaemia Foundation World’s Greatest Shave this year. The support and generosity we received have been exceptional. Every contribution is appreciated.

On behalf of everyone at the Leukaemia Foundation, including patients, their families, our volunteers and staff, we say a very special thank you for their outstanding efforts. We received incredible support from schools, businesses, health professionals, media, celebrities, politicians and individuals. Every year, about 2500 Victorians are expected to be diagnosed with leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma and related blood disorders. Treatment can begin within 24 hours of diagnosis, which can be extremely challenging, especially for regional patients, where many have to relocate to the city for treatment. Almost $3 million has been raised across Victoria and over $15 million nationally. We are on the fast track to reaching our goal of $3.5 million in Victoria – and there is still time to donate.

ODE TO MY SUBURB Award-winning Malvern sculptor KARLEENA MITCHELL reveals her favourite places in the area to… ENJOY A GREAT BREAKFAST Eden Espresso has the best coffee and is a great neighbourhood gathering spot. I have supported the guys here since day one. Barista Jet is the funkiest dude. PICK UP TAKEAWAY Laughing Girl has the best roti in town. It is run by a lovely young couple. GRAB A LAST-MINUTE GIFT Wen and Ware Living has lots of unique gifts and is well priced. It also has friendly, welcoming staff.

SOURCE GOOD INGREDIENTS Larder Provisions and Cafe has the most amazing local products,

including top-end cheeses, the best olives, Spanish spices and even snails. I just tell them what I’m cooking and they will get the ingredients in for me. FIND THE BEST BUTCHER Malvern Continental Butchers has very good quality meat and lots of interesting eastern European meats. BUY A GOOD A BOOK My children were brought up in three different countries – England, New Zealand and Australia – and I never really let them watch television. Instead, they would get money each month and were allowed to buy a book. I am a great supporter of Books in Print as it has well-informed staff who are always happy to get in any books that I want.

JUST MARRIED HARRISON and CHRISTIE HARGER

A

rmadale groom Harrison Harger was still writing his vows in his head as he waited for his bride Christie to walk down the aisle at Whale Bay reserve in Raglan, New Zealand. But he needn’t have worried, he still managed to put a tear in the eye of almost all the female guests! The New Zealand-born couple decided their February 18 wedding would be an intimate affair with just 20 friends and family, who all stayed in town for two days to enjoy a picnic of fish and chips at the wharf the evening before the wedding and a roast meal at a beach house overlooking the water after the beachside ceremony.“We highly recommend a small wedding with no frills and a focus on family,” Christie says.

BABY LOVE

GIYA ZHAO Sanket Shah barely had time to park the car at Cabrini Hospital in Malvern before his wife Cherrie Zhao gave birth to their second daughter, Giya Zhao on February 11, after a 45-minute labour. Born at 8.15am, weighing 3.68 kilograms, Giya is a sister to Ella, 2 – much to her disappointment, as she wanted a baby brother! Sanket and Cherrie chose Giya after the Latin name Gia, which means peaceful.

CLAIRE MINEHAN (right) Lives: Seaford. Works: Beauty therapist. What are you doing here today? Catching up with a friend for coffee. What are you wearing? My jacket is Country Road, my top is from Cue, shoes are Toni Bianco, jeans are Nobody and I’ve got a Mimco bag. Personal style: I don’t tend to follow any trends or anything. I just tend to wear what looks good on me. I like pretty simple colours, I don’t like anything too colourful or crazy. Style muse: It’s pretty pathetic, but I really love Zoe from the tv series Hart of Dixie. I don’t really copy it, I just like what she wears.

Lives: Caulfield. Works: Retired fashion consultant. What are you doing here today? I’m just going to have lunch with a friend and looking around the shops. I love this particular avenue, High Street, it’s just lovely. It has a lovely ambience. What are you wearing? Jumper is Ralph Lauren, the pants are Zara. The cardigan is an Italian label, I’m not really sure. The shoes are... I’m not sure of the label, but they are very comfortable! My handbag is Coach and glasses are Valentino. Personal style: Casual. Very casual, not structured, and nothing matching. Just complementing each other. Style muse: I like the Italians, I like the Europeans, and the way they dress. It is very unstructured. Just colours and styles that complement each other.

The Verdict

Soho Salon, 3/10 Little Chapel Street, Prahran. Details: call 0418 855 182 Cost: $90 per person

Soho Salon offers all manner of beauty treatments, including facials, massage and waxing, but it’s the pamper parties and personal skincare and makeup lessons that are its point of difference. O’Donaghue explains the importance of having hydrated skin as a base for applying makeup, then shows me how to apply a sophisticated look for the eyes, transitioning from day to night. She gives me tips on which brushes to use to apply and then blend shadows, how to apply mascara to make my lashes look fuller and how to steady my hand when applying liner. She demonstrates on one side of my face and I try my hand on the other. Thankfully, O’Donaghue touches up where I’m not yet up to scratch. I feel glamorous without being

As a teenager, I quickly learnt the fine line between glamorous smoky eyes and looking like a clown or, worse, a drag queen. So having mostly avoided anything more than a dash of eyeliner and a lick of mascara for more than a decade, I decide it’s time to learn the art of grown-up makeup. A barefoot Kate O’Donaghue greets me at the door to her elegant Prahran salon. After seven years managing spas in Indonesia, the diminutive hair, makeup and beauty therapist has adopted a no-shoes indoors policy so I slip off my sandals and pad across the floor. Ambient music plays softly as I haul myself onto the high director-style chair and stare into the wide mirror opposite.

self-conscious and knowing where to stop applying shadow on my lid means I will never be caught looking like a drag queen again.

ASSASSINS

song and dance about nine assassins, or would-be assassins, of American presidents is a surefire way to get audiences worked up after the laughter has subsided. That’s the view of Windsor-based actor Matt Holly (pictured right in green), who plays John Hinckley jnr in Academy Award-winner Stephen Sondheim’s blackly comedic Assassins. Hinckley tried to assassinate Ronald Reagan in 1981 to impress actor Jodie Foster during a long obsession with her. The nine assassins include John Wilkes Booth, the actor who shot President Abraham Lincoln in a theatre in 1865, Lee Harvey Oswald, who killed President John F. Kennedy in 1963, and Sarah Jane Moore, who made an attempt to kill President Gerald Ford in 1975. “It’s like taking the camera lens of history and moving it to a different angle to show their inner workings,” Holly says. “You will laugh at some of them,

and sympathise even. Then it hammers home that what these people did was real.” Holly was suitably disturbed when he first saw Assassins in 2010, performed by third-year National Institute of Dramatic Art students. Holly’s credits include a national tour of West Side Story in 2010, the

world premiere of the Cat Stevens show Moonshadow, the Australian premiere of Love Never Dies and a national tour of A Chorus Line. He says Assassins, directed by Tyran Parke, has one of the most talented ensembles he has worked with, including Nadine Garner. The play won five Tony awards

the

Brow Bar Presents Petite Express-Brow

on Broadway in 2004.“These nine people are a product of the same society that created the presidents they want to kill,” Holly says. “Through research it’s very hard to see them as human beings, but through the show we are finding serious comedy and heartfelt moments.

“A common thread is wanting to be heard. What I have noticed is how much of their killing, or attempts to kill, was born out of love, not hate. But it was a misplaced love. “Hinckley has a bizarre fascination with Jodie Foster since she was a child actor. He tries to get her attention, goes to her school, her dorm. Before trying to kill [President Ford] he writes a letter and says ‘I will prove to you my everlasting love with one brave historic act’. “You watch Nadine Garner play Sarah, for example, and you laugh and laugh. She is so funny. “But in the end you remember Sarah tried to kill someone.’’ HARBANT GILL hgill@mmpgoup.com.au

ity of Stonnington’s Teenage Holiday Program was in full swing last Tuesday, with 20 or so 10-15 year olds making the most of Wonderland Fun Park at Docklands.There were dodgem cars, bungee trampolines, roller coasters, walk-on water balls and a fabulous illusion spectacular in Wonderland’s very own Spiegeltent. Man, when I was a kid, I watched TV at Nanna’s. CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT Max, 13, didn’t do much dodging. Say one thing about Teenage Holiday Program leaders Allison Stoddart and Stef Carey; they’re head turners. Not since H.R. Pufnstuf have I been so freaked out by a tree. Thirteenyear-olds Max and Luca, though, were unfazed. Little Kyle, 8, became “Kyle The Incredible” with magician Michael Boyd as puppeteer. For the record, Kyle was a scream. Ilai, 14, and Jonathan, 12, seemed to appreciate this particularly gutchurning ride differently. When Michael Boyd asked kids if they had any questions after this pulling-a-hoop-through-a-levitatingwoman trick, the unanimous response was, “How did you do that?” Unsurprisingly, he didn’t say.

PAT SCALA

Former Bulldogs star kicks on at Old Scotch BY EWEN McRAE emcrae@mmpgroup.com.au FAR from the bright lights and the big stadiums, Lindsay Gilbee has found his way to Old Scotch Football Club for season 2013 and couldn’t be happier about it. The former Western Bulldogs playmaker, who retired from the AFL at the end of an injury-riddled 2012, says he’s looking forward to getting stuck into his first season of amateur football. ‘‘To be honest I’m absolutely loving it down there,’’ Gilbee says. ‘‘I’m looking forward to just getting out and having a kick, being part of the club, and being able to sit down and have a beer after the game, which will be a nice change.’’ As a veteran of 206 AFL games for the Dogs over 11 seasons, Gilbee, 32, attracted interest from cashedup country clubs, as well as fellow amateur club University Blues, but ultimately it was his friendships at Old Scotch which sealed the deal. ‘‘I’ve got a great relationship with [Old Scotch president] Dave McCleary, and also having one of my best mates, Ed Barlow, down there has been fantastic,’’ Gilbee says. Barlow and Gilbee have stayed in

touch since they played together during Barlow’s brief time at the Bulldogs in 2011. Barlow also spent four years with Sydney Swans and will be another valuable onfield asset for Old Scotch. With his body freshened up, Gilbee looks certain to be used as one of the Cardinals’ key midfielders this year, after being trialled in several positions over the past month. ‘‘I took about 31⁄ 2 months off last year, which I really needed cause the body hasn’t had a long break in a long time,’’ he says. ‘‘I think I’ll settle in the midfield, but really whatever’s best for the team.’’ Gilbee says that despite his struggles with injury in his final season, that wasn’t what led to his retirement. ‘‘It was more the mind than the body,’’ Gilbee says. ‘‘Ask any retired player and 80 per cent would say that it’s the mind more than the body that makes the decision. ‘‘Watching the AFL now I don’t miss it one bit. I miss the boys and the club I guess but not the training side of it. That’s when you know you’ve made the right

decision.’’ Gilbee rated his greatest achievement alongside his greatest disappointment, being part of three preliminary final team with the Bulldogs without ever making it to the last Saturday in September. ‘‘Playing finals footy is what it’s all about, and I got to play in 11 finals for three wins, but I guess you play to win premierships and I never got to have a crack at one,’’ he says. It’s that drive that still keeps him going, and what will be such a valuable part of Old Scotch’s chances of repeating last year’s finals appearance. ‘‘You’re a long time retired and I think I can still play for another five or six years. I still love the game,’’ Gilbee says. ‘‘I haven’t won a premiership since juniors, and I understand it’s been a long time since Scotch has won one so it would be great to be a part of their next one.’’ ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ��� ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ●

MATCH REPORT

BRIEFS

Pumped-up Xavs see off Tigers THE start of the VAFA season can’t come soon enough for Old Xaverians after they rounded out their preparations with a comfortable win over EFL premiers Balwyn on Saturday. After an even first half, Xavs split the game open in the third term before running out the game stronger for a 17.10 (112) to 9.13 (67) victory at Toorak Park. Balwyn went into the match significantly depleted and with two players returning from long-term injuries but took the game up to the home side in the early stages. Both sides were clearly in need of the game time as players fumbled their way through the first quarter, but Xavs kicked late goals to take an eight-point lead into the first break. Balwyn’s Shane Tregear, returning 12 weeks after hip surgery, got things rolling for the Tigers with a goal inside the first minute of the second. Tregear also provided one of the highlights of the day with a monstrous, high-flying pack mark at the 10-minute mark, but he failed to convert the goal in what became a common theme for Balwyn. Xavs led by seven points at half time, but blew the game open with five goals to Balwyn’s seven behinds in the third term. The lead ballooned to 47 points in the final term before Balwyn respon-

■ SOCCER SHOCKER South Yarra’s soccer club’s State League 4 season started disastrously on Saturday with a 5-2 loss against Seaford United on Saturday. South Yarra trailled 2-1 at half-time. ■ TOUGH START East Malvern will begin the Southern Football League Division 1 season with an away match against Dingley on Saturday. It’s a tough initiation for East Malvern following their promotion from Division 2 last year, with Dingley finishing fifth in the top grade last season. ■ SCOTCH PREPARES WELL VAFA clubs De La Salle and Old Scotch rounded out their preseasons with a final practice match against each other at Camberwell Sports Ground on Saturday. Scotch opened up an early lead and went on to win by three goals.

UNDER PRESSURE: Old Xavs’ Nick Wynne (on ground) tries to get the ball away in heavy traffic against Balwyn ded, with three goals in three minutes. Old Xaverians co-coach Dom Berry said his side was nearing peak fitness ahead of their Round 1 match against De La Salle at Toorak Park on Saturday. “They’re a tough opposition to have but I thought our run today was outstanding,” Berry said. “We’ve

been working pretty hard on fitness so you’d like to think the work you do in pre-season holds you in good stead in the final phases of games. “We’re always wary of De La Salle. They’ve been a very good opponent for a number of years so we’ll have to prepare accordingly to make sure we get the points.” Conversely, Balwyn coach Dan

Donati conceded his team wasn’t in great form in the lead-up to this weekend’s Round 1 match with East Ringwood at Balwyn Park. “We’re a bit underdone to be honest, and I’m glad we played three practice games because we needed them,” he said. “I reckon we’re about three weeks behind where we were this time last year.”

■ REWARDS FOR SERVICE De La Salle’s John Bolt and Melbourne High School Old Boys FC’s new president, Warren Fall, were awarded Certificates of Merit for service to their clubs at last week’s VAFA season launch. They were among the 10 given out this year. Bolt is entering his 28th year of continuous service to his club and has served many roles on club committees since 1985. He was made a life member in 1997. Fall has served on the committee for 20 years and in 2007 became only the fourth person to be made a Melbourne High School Old Boys Club Hero.

No trophies, but True Blues coach sees silver lining DESPITE missing out on silverware, Prahran coach Andrew Walton is happy with the Premier Cricket season which has just finished. With the club’s top two sides featuring in finals and strong showings across the season from all teams, Walton has high hopes for his current crop of players. ‘‘We’ve been able to build a solid and consistent platform of performance over a number of years now,’’ Walton said. ‘‘The club has finished in the top five of the club championship for three years running, which no other club has been able to do. ‘‘And the Ones and Twos finished

in the top two, which has never happened in the history of the club, so there are plenty of positives.’’ Only three players remain from Prahran’s losing First XI finals side of three years ago, with the new generation of True Blues starting to find their feet at the top level. ‘‘Seeing someone like Nick Morrey come in and make two fifties in his first two innings in the Ones, and then Matt Wilcox cementing a spot, that’s fantastic for our club’s future,’’ Walton said. As well as the young players coming through, Prahran also had three players who produced career-best years in their respective fields.

Bryce McGain led the competition with the ball, snaring 54 victims with his wily leg spin at the outstanding average of 13.50, while opening bowler Rhys Adams bagged 48 wickets. Prahran skipper Sam Coates also had a standout year behind the stumps, breaking the club record for dismissals with 46, well past the previous mark of 34. ‘‘For those three is it wasn’t just one big game, it was a season of consistent performances,’’ Walton said. Injuries to key men Jack Taylor, Stephen Seymour and Will Long cost the club at various times but the Firsts were always a threat to

opposition sides, especially in limited-overs matches. ‘‘The Firsts played in the one-day final and missed the T20 final on run rate, and the Twos missed both limited-overs finals on run rate so we still maintained our standards,’’ Walton said. After a season where the club did not actively recruit players, Walton said there may be a need to look at injecting some fresh faces, so long as they could add to the group. ‘‘I’m not a fan of bringing in players over the top of others, but we’ll certainly see if there’s a need to recruit to improve,’’ he said. - EWEN McRAE
