It’s not a new fire levy, it’s a fairer fire levy. On 1 July 2013, as recommended by the Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission, the Victorian Government is replacing the old fire services levy with a fairer system. Rather than being added to insurance premiums, the levy will now be collected with council rates. This means all property owners contribute a fair share to the Country Fire Authority or the Metropolitan Fire Brigade. The levy is a fixed charge of $100 for residential properties and $200 for non-residential properties, plus a variable charge based on the property’s capital improved value. All funds will go towards supporting Victoria’s fire services. GST and stamp duty charged on the old levy have been removed and, for the first time, eligible pensioners and veterans will receive a $50 concession. These reforms will save households and business around $100 million a year. F•S•A/DPC0018

W

e’ve all been there. On the computer, important things to do, important things to write and then a pop-up or banner appears. OK then, we’ll click that. A survey? Well, OK. A competition? Sure. Miss Universe? Why not! When the call came to follow up on Olivia Wells’ casual online application, made precisely as above, it was a shock. “I was actually planning essays for my year 12 end-of-year exams. We were in the nitty-gritty phase and I was off with the fairies for a bit on Facebook and just clicked a few pop-up ads,” Wells says. Soon after, the fairies were in touch and they had an offer that was too fun for the 19-year-old to resist. “I didn’t expect to be contacted after that, but they called and said, ‘We’d like to have you in the preliminary’, and then after the preliminary it was, ‘You’re through to the state final’. And then in the state final there were 30

stunning Victorian girls, and they popped me through to the national final, and I couldn’t believe it.” Wells is a scholar, an athlete and now, with the click of a mouse, a model. A successful one, so far. But a word or two of warning: don’t get attached to the idea and don’t mix up the order. It’s only for a year, regardless of whether she’s crowned Miss Universe or not. “The 29 other girls that entered Miss Universe entered it because they wanted to further their modelling career or TV presenting career. I was the odd one out in the fact that that never was my motivation to enter. “I’ve never wanted to be on Postcards or anything when I was younger. I’ve always wanted to be a doctor. It’s almost embarrassing to admit that this started with just a laugh and no dream of becoming Miss Universe.” The game started getting real, though, when she realised in the lead-up to the national finals she could connect the two outcomes; her dream to be a doctor and the potential to use the increasing exposure “as a platform” to talk about the causes she will later address on the ground in Third World countries. She could put the “role” in front of model. “It’s the way of the world that, with a bit of cash and a name behind you, you can do so much more. While I would’ve done as much as I could as little old me without any of this extra media platform, it does help. You look at what celebrities can do and how much difference they can make just because they have a bit of a name. “I’m going to continue tutoring children from refugee and migrant backgrounds, and continue going overseas and doing volunteer medical work over there. While I would’ve done that anyway, having Miss Universe Australia in front of my name certainly helps.” Wells’ lifelong goal to study and practise medicine has made the beauty pageant experience less stressful. “I felt I was a lot more relaxed throughout some of the lead-up days and rehearsals than some of the other girls. I certainly had so much fun, purely because I wasn’t thinking about winning. “I said to my dad the day before I went into the competition, ‘It doesn’t matter if I win or not because in 10 years’ time I’m still going to be a doctor’. I still want to work in Third World countries. I’ve always wanted to be a doctor. Why would that change now?” Wells’ mature world view is explained by a family environment where the children were “encouraged to have an opinion and openly discuss things”. “For the dads out there, talk to your daughters

about issues,” Wells says. “Let them have opinions. It might surprise you. I used to love when my dad drove me to school (at Loreto Mandeville Hall) and we’d have this 45 minutes or hour sitting in traffic and we’d listen to talkback radio and discuss things.” It’s hard to say which is more powerful in Wells’ armoury of strong first impressions; her beauty or her hard-edged determination. The second has the effect of galvanising the first into something more like a diamond than a softly calling siren. You become aware in Wells’ presence that pretty young girls in photo shoots are rarely, if ever, this self aware. And never this steely. Sleepovers and talk of Ryan Gosling is brushed off like dirt from the shoulder. If Wells has an obsession, it’s with owls, and it apparently dates back to “way before they were trendy”. She eagerly flicks through a gallery of owl photos on her phone to prove her point. It’s legit. Lots of owls. Despite the cuteness of the exercise, it doesn’t appear to be an act. When Wells was on Channel Seven a few days before our interview, she “didn’t even know who Chris Smith was” (chisel-jawed Myer model) and yet was deeply star-struck by the presence of maths boffin and legendary comedian Adam Spencer. “I managed to say to Adam that I loved his Book of Numbers.” The experience of fame on any level is pretty fresh to Wells, who is “still enjoying the novelty of being glammed up”. Far from an awkward subject in front of the lens, she has the range of a pro, changing expression with each click of the camera with alarming ease. Comely, to coy, to casual selfie to high-fashion cold, there is a confidence to her movements, but also a sense that she is treating this as she would a sporting contest: seriously and with total command of the muscles in her body and her face. On the topic of preparedness Wells says that, with the world title up for grabs, it must start now. “I didn’t do any form of preparation leading up to the national pageant. None whatsoever,” she says. “I was just myself. At the moment we’re just about to start the real preparation. It’ll be diet, exercise, hair, skin, nails, walking, talking, everything has to be perfect.” The self-discipline part is easy for Wells. Less enjoyable is the side of fame she can’t control: the haters. Since coming to prominence she has felt the unexpected sting of mean tongues, excoriating her, mostly online – the coward’s refuge – for being “too big to model”. “People are knocking me at the moment for my weight,” she says, but with strength. “It’s not a nice feeling and I’ve had a bit of a cry about it, but you’ve just got to step forward and be like, ‘No; I’m not going to let that happen’. Whatever you do, there are always going

to be people who don’t like you whether you’re in the public eye or not. You’ve got to be true to yourself and say, forget it, there are plenty of people that love me for who I am, and let the haters hate. “Every woman is critical of herself. Every woman looks in the mirror and there’s always something that we say, ‘I don’t like that’. Standing with 29 other girls, I was the biggest there and there were times when I thought, ‘Her legs are great’ or ‘Does she have that bulgy bit on the side of her hips that I do?’ It’s really difficult not to subconsciously compare yourself backstage, and judge yourself. I think that was the hardest thing for me to overcome. “The important thing I want to get across to young girls is it’s OK to not like certain bits, but you’ve got to be able to stand up and say, ‘I actually really like this about me’, or ‘My legs might not be great, but I love my tummy’, or ‘I’ve got great arms’. “Our bodies are incredible things. To just think about our bodies as these wonderful artworks, it’s more than just something to look at. It’s something that has these incredible functions, and can do all these amazing things. I don’t think we quite appreciate that enough to be honest.” Well-said, Olivia Wells, though you do get used to this, especially when a little bit of reverse snobbery is detected in a question. I had asked if she felt an ideological disconnect from the other beauty pageant competitors who have been less prepared to make a stand on this, or any other issue facing young women. Wells had said that the bitchiness she anticipated from other girls in the competition never happened. They were “pretty much all really sweet” and she had a “huge amount of respect” for them as people. A lot of respect? Is that the right word, when their world views and value systems differ so starkly from hers? What happened next is what the younger generation call getting “owned”. “Of course I have respect for them,” she says with raised eyebrows. “Just because they have different values to me doesn’t mean they deserve any less respect than I would give to a surgeon or a lawyer – or a journalist. “We all have different purposes, different attributes and attitudes in life. Whether you want to be a model, a hairdresser, or a neurosurgeon, or stay at home and look after some kids, we all deserve respect. That’s something I really pride myself on, that my parents instilled in me. “The world needs doctors, lawyers, models, hairdressers, and we all contribute to society in different ways. I can tell you now if there were no hair and make-up artists or baristas or mums that wanted to stay at home and raise kids, our society wouldn’t function. “For me and for my destiny, it’s medicine. I went in and spoke to university today and they asked if I would like to drop back and do a science degree and postgraduate medicine? I said, ‘No way’. When this year finishes, I’m going straight back to my medicine degree. I’ve wanted that for 19 years of my life. For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted that, and this has been on the scene for a couple of weeks.” \ amcutchen@theweeklyreview.com.au » Olivia Wells will compete in the 62nd Miss Universe Pageant at Crocus City Hall in Moscow on November 9.

O

n the doorstep of The Town Mouse, a newish arrival to the burgeoning off-Lygon strip in Carlton, a flagstone beckons passersby. “Come in for good times,” it promises. No false advertising here. Inside, the restaurant is compact and tiled and looks like a bar, but The Town Mouse can be almost anything you want it to be. Bar. Restaurant. Pre-theatre snack. Post-cinema nightcap this is and nibbles. Sunday lunch. Special occasion habitslap-up feast. forming I can imagine doing all of the above here, food and never being disappointed. The space was most recently home to French fine diner Embrasse, where I remember sitting in hushed surrounds and marvelling at the produce and precision involved in Nicolas Poelart’s culinary art. But it was never what you’d call fun. The Town Mouse takes itself much less seriously. The floor crew are here to show you a good time and go out of their way to do so. Sly jokes, disarming honesty, winning wine service and the ability to make all feel welcome are just a few of their talents. Unfortunately they can’t do much about the shrieking noise levels from the diabolical combo of tiled walls and terrazzo floors. Bring an ear trumpet if you have one handy. You may need it on a full-house Friday night. Central to the good times is a wine list compiled by talented sommelier Lachlan Barber. He has cherry(grape-?) picked plenty of fascinating drops from around the globe – often biodynamic or wild ferment or otherwise avant-garde. There’s an Alsatian white with the unpronounceable name of Mittnacht Gyotaku, a blend of riesling, Not so funny: gewürtztraminer, pinot gris and pinot blanc that goes Heirloom kales down like nectar. And I love the sound of Patrick (DArriAn Sullivan’s Breakfast Wine but it seems a little early, TrAynor) even for me. Dave Verheul’s cooking is the other key ingredient. It would make even the most jaded diner sit up and pay attention. Here’s a man whose idea of a bar snack is a mini profiterole stuffed with creamy-sour goat’s cheese, showered in caraway salt and thyme, and plonked on a drizzle of their own rooftop honey. Parts of the concept might be familiar but it feels completely original. Likewise the “heirloom kales”, a dish that sounds hilarious when described in full by staff but one mouthful is enough to wipe the smile off your face. It’s a plate of deep-fried cabbage leaves sitting on three types of kale and some “sprouted” rye and red quinoa. “We activate it ourselves,” the waitress says, Online Only coming over all Pete Evans. » Ben Thomas’ There’s also an egg in the mix, poached at precisely weekly wine 62.5 degrees, and the lot is spumed with a foam made selections from Comté cheese, the king of gruyère.

makes everything taste spectacular; eyes pop open with pleasure. Verheul’s school prawns are up there with the city’s best. Here they’re dusted in semolina and deep fried to the point where their shells become pleasantly chewy crusts. They’re doused in sesame salt and arranged around a central pool of garlic and saffron rouille. We clean the plate with our wet fingers. (On a subsequent visit I’m urging my date to have the kale – “you’ll love that” – and ordering the school prawns without a moment’s hesitation. This is habit-forming food.) Nothing I’ve eaten here is bad but some plates are not as good. Under the menu’s “raw” section, the shaved calamari formed into rosettes and teamed with blobs of oyster cream, dill and fermented apple juice is fragrant but not my thing. The cream seems a bit split, perhaps from the acid of the apple. Triangles of crisp, semolina-caked beef cheek are a tad too crisp, the meat inside too dry, but they’re saved by a white soy cream and a gutsy, gorgeous paste of black garlic.

The 12-hour lamb makes a lavish Sunday lunch. It costs $62 for 900 grams of fat-crusted shoulder that’s been slow cooked in a water bath with thyme, garlic, bay leaves, olive oil and lemon juice (I hope you’re taking notes) and then pan-roasted for another 25 minutes to give it a healthy glow and get the juices flowing. It’s served with a healthy side of charred cos and lemon zest, and an unhealthy side of tahini. A plate of roasted red cabbage stuffed with prunes and apple and drenched in melted parmesan, tips the scales to pure gluttony. If the roast and cabbage doesn’t do you in, the ricotta doughnuts just might. The size of chicken nuggets, they’re coated in sugar and cinnamon, stuffed with gooey ricotta, fried to a deep tan and then arranged on a mandarin cream fragrant with fennel. It’s pretty obvious why The Town Mouse has received only glowing critical reviews since opening in March. Add one more voice to that approving chorus. \ khill@theweeklyreview.com.au TO reaD MOre reviews

A

s a philosophy teacher, Lenny Robinson-McCarthy and her students grapple with life’s big questions on a daily basis. Who are we? Why are we here? What is right and what is wrong? But this deep thinker is certainly not immune to the less philosophical questions faced by all parents, such as, “How do you find time to teach, write books and care for a four-year-old?”. “You never feel like you’re doing any job well enough,” Robinson-McCarthy concedes during a rare break in the grand old 19th century former orphanage that is now part of Preshil, The Margaret Lyttle Memorial School. “At three o’clock yesterday afternoon I was talking about Nietzsche’s book The Genealogy of Morality. At six o’clock I was cutting gingerbread out on my table at home. At 7.30 I was listening to a reader. At 9pm I was reading Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood.” Not that she’s complaining. Robinson-McCarthy, who grew up on a Gippsland dairy farm, loves every minute of her crazy-busy life. “When I think about it, my life is really rich and wonderful,” she says, eating the breakfast she won’t have time for if she doesn’t get to it now. “I feel that my life is meaningful, and that’s all you can ever ask.” Robinson-McCarthy’s journey from a 50-hectare dairy farm six kilometres outside Leongatha to respected creative writer and one of Victoria’s premier VCE philosophy authorities has been fascinating but not without a few road humps. Philosophy was the last thing on her mind growing up with brothers Lance, now 38, and Lincoln, 32. Their father, Ian, left school at 12 and mother, Gwen, at 14. Both developed their own special talents, but there was no intellectual or political chat around the dinner table. Instead Robinson-McCarthy, now 39, enjoyed the freedom of a farm, read every book she could find and made her own fun, which she believes helped her develop as a creative writer. “I adored the freedom of it, of being able to just roam paddocks,” she says. “I really love nature and I feel at peace in the country. I think it was a place where I could be a child longer than I perhaps could have been if I’d grown up in the city. We made a lot of imaginary worlds and things like that. When I became a teenager, I found it a lot more limiting.” Robinson-McCarthy attended Leongatha primary and high schools, walking a kilometre to the bus stop each morning. She was relatively rebellious at high school but made friends with the principal’s daughter and learnt about the possibilities of university. While her parents were happy for her to leave school and marry a farmer, Robinson-McCarthy’s late year 12 co-ordinator, Bob Crouch, and other teachers believed in her and offered encouragement. Also a dancer, Robinson-McCarthy studied arts at Monash University and majored in fiction writing and literature. For the first year she lived with her maternal grandmother, Mary O’Brien, who was full of encouragement. University was challenging after being a big fish in a small pond. But the determined young student thrived on the intellectual challenge and was captivated by women’s studies. She also wrote short stories and her work has appeared in publications such as Overland and Best Australian Essays 2012. After graduating, Robinson-McCarthy wanted to write full time and waited tables to make ends meet. At 24, she met husband Greg McCarthy, who was a café customer and worked in production at nearby Mushroom Records. He is now a carpenter. 20 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ AUGUST 14, 2013

A good question Education \ This teacher has a philosophical approach to life, writes Cheryl CritChley They moved to Sydney so McCarthy could work for Sony, but eight weeks before Robinson-McCarthy was due to start a master of teaching at the University of Sydney he had a life-threatening motorbike accident. Facing lengthy rehabilitation, they returned to Melbourne and Robinson-McCarthy completed a diploma of education at the University of Melbourne. Before then, she had flirted with teaching, applying several times before pulling out. “Each time I got the acceptance letter I went, ‘No I’m not cut out to be a teacher, I’m not the right personality, it’s not going to suit me’,” she says. For once, this confident and intelligent young woman was wrong. Robinson-McCarthy loved her teaching rounds and knew immediately that she could do it. She had a natural affinity for working in front of a class and relished the challenge of engaging teenagers. After applying for a literature teaching job at Preshil, she won the job but was instead asked to teach the new VCE philosophy subject, which started in 2001. Despite brushing up on the subject over summer, that first year was “incredibly difficult” because teachers largely drove the course. But Robinson-McCarthy took the bull by the horns, developing an engaging and vigorous program while studying for her honours. She also spent six years on a PhD exploring literary philosophy at Deakin University. “It was the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life,” she says. “I never knew if I was the most brilliant person that ever walked the face of the earth or if I was going to fail.” Never one to slow down, Robinson McCarthy discovered she was pregnant with Ruby Rose, now four, as she finished the PhD. She went straight into writing a small history book on 19th century Melbourne brothel owner Caroline Hodgson, known as Madame Brussels. “The whole nine months of my pregnancy I wrote Madame Brussels and in fact I wrote the last chapter in labour,” she says. “It was due and I was determined to finish that book before I gave birth. “I had 12 hours. I was at home for most of it. My editor and I were talking on the phone and I just remember the last phone call having contractions and having to stop and go, ‘Sorry, this is the last bit that you’re going to get, I can’t keep writing,’ and hung up.” Robinson-McCarthy took a year off after having Ruby Rose, who now attends Preshil’s early learning centre. She continued to write, publishing a year 11 philosophy text with Anna Symes in 2010, Philosophy:

alumni Anton Gerner Professor Susan Sawyer Louise Davidson Dr Ben Cleveland » P22

a student text for VCE units 1 & 2. They are updating it and planning a year-12 version. VCE philosophy wasn’t introduced until 2001, but Robinson-McCarthy, who also teaches postgraduate writing at Deakin University and works in philosophy assessment and curriculum development with the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority, believes it helps to prepare students for life. Philosophy fits well with Preshil’s aim to produce independent thinkers. It is a deliberately small school founded by Margaret Jane Ruth Lyttle in the 1930s and run by her niece, also Margaret Lyttle, for 50 years. Both were passionate advocates of progressive education. Pondering life’s big questions is natural for teenagers, particularly those encouraged to think for themselves. But how do you interest them in the likes of Socrates, Plato, Descartes and Nietzsche? Robinson-McCarthy insists it is not hard if you create a framework and keep the questions basic. “Philosophy shouldn’t be a dry subject,” she explains. “Questions like, ‘What is right?’ and ‘What is wrong?’ and ‘What is the nature of reality?’ and ‘How should we live our lives?’ and ‘Is pleasure important in life?’; all of these … are fascinating questions. “In other subjects … you start from your opinion and then you find ways to defend your opinion. In philosophy we look at the evidence and from there we form an opinion. “I sometimes say to students in philosophy, ‘You might find that the best answer is actually not the one you agree with’, and actually being able to recognise that is the beginnings of students doing philosophy.” Preshil students have embraced the challenge, with half of last year’s year 12 class scoring over 40. It has also produced two Premier’s Prize-winners in the subject. “Philosophy should be compulsory in my opinion … it teaches young people or teaches anybody how to think, and knowing how to think is so important for how we live our lives personally,” Robinson-McCarthy says. “It allows us to clearly look at the information that we are given in different parts of our lives. “There’s nothing more exciting than when a group of students walk out of your classroom and they’re still talking about it when they walk out. They’re still debating and they’re questioning and you can see that they’re on fire with the question, agreeing or disagreeing or just trying to work it out in their heads and that’s when I know I’m teaching really well.” \ ccritchley@theweeklyreview.com.au

Education \ timbertop has been changing lives for 60 years, writes chEryl critchlEy

onward & upward W

hen Geelong Grammar School’s Timbertop facility opened 60 years ago, perched on an isolated mountaintop, it was Australia’s first year-long off-campus learning program. It attracted children of the rich and famous, including Prince Charles, and paved the way for many innovative middle-years school programs. The life-changing experience in Victoria’s high country has been enjoyed by many famous Australians and has even inspired popular songs and books. Writer John Marsden was a Timbertop English teacher when he developed his first book, So Much To Tell You. His popular Tomorrow series of seven young adult novels about an invasion of Australia by a foreign power have themes echoing the Timbertop experience, such as the bush setting, resourceful and resilient teenagers, isolation and lack of communication. Two-time Booker Prize-winner Peter Carey spent 1958 on the mountain. Prince Charles attended in 1966. The seed for Timbertop was sown in 1951 by Geelong Grammar headmaster Dr (later Sir) James Darling, who summonsed maths teacher Hugh Montgomery and told him to “buy me a mountain”. While times and technology have changed and the school is now co-ed, the basic philosophy has not. Darling believed that “moral and intellectual courage comes only from experience”. He later wrote that education “must be closely concerned with the development of self-confidence, and that this comes from the learning of competence in practical ways, and from the growth of self-reliance and independence”. “The theory of Timbertop was … that adolescent boys could better develop by themselves, out of the usual school machine. Placed in a different and less-clement environment, they should undertake responsibility for themselves and be given the challenges of something like a man’s life under conditions that they had to conquer. But the first

principle was … of self-reliance and the challenge to live up to this responsibility.” Opened in 1953, the campus was initially for year 10 students. Girls joined boys when the school went co-ed in the 1970s. All year 9 students now do the program. Today more than 220 students live at the isolated 325-hectare campus, which is nestled in the rugged foothills of the Great Dividing Range between Mansfield and Mount Buller. Students live and work with 14 other students and staff in spartan units, maintaining them and learning a range of practical skills such as creating chore rosters. If they want heating and hot water they must find fuel for wood-fired heaters and boilers. They have newspapers, regular mail and movies but no TV or regular access to phone or email. Mobile phones are banned. Core subjects and electives are still important, but students also camp away from their units for 50-55 nights and join outdoor activities such as hiking, skiing, canoeing, rafting and rogaining. A running program culminates in the 28-kilometre Timbertop Marathon. Students can also undertake the Duke of

Edinburgh award and enjoy music, reading, horse riding, Nordic skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking, fly fishing, self-defence, golf, rock climbing, board games, baking, jewellery making, leatherwork, woodwork, fine dining, cooking, football scarf knitting, ceramics and drama. Head of Timbertop Roger Herbert says its students learn to cope with adversity. “Through the experiential out-of-door program and the explicit teaching program, students build upon their resilience so that they are in a better position to flourish in their life,” he says.  “We prioritise highly the value of good intrapersonal relationships, a strong sense of community and the dignity of hard work away from the distractions of the modern world, as we always have. “The smell of eucalypts, the pink setting sun on the surrounding hills and the beautiful blue sky is ever present. What has changed is the physical structures in this special isolated valley. The buildings have faded and have changed colour only to be rebuilt and Outdoor updated. It is different but really the same.” activities: Other past Timbertop students include the Timbertop first Australian to climb Mount Everest, Tim began life Macartney-Snape, Geelong footballer Sam Newman, with a simple singer-songwriter Missy Higgins and Paralympic concept. alpine skier Cam Rahles-Rahbula, who wore out (Supplied) seven sets of crutches and 150 rubber stoppers during his year.

n Victoria, religious diversity education is primarily offered in faith-based schools. Many Catholic, Jewish and Muslim schools run interfaith programs, and some community organisations also provide educational initiatives to all schools. Since the 1990s, special religious instruction has been available to students, with volunteers of varying faiths offering an overview of many religions. Deakin University sociology lecturer and Religion, Ethics and Education Network of Australia representative Dr Anna Halafoff says there is an opportunity to introduce religion and beliefs education in Victorian schools. She believes a program similar to those offered in Quebec, which include ethics and diverse religion education – catering for religious and non-religious world views – would be beneficial. “These types of programs can encourage students to explore and respect other religions and cultures through learning about other religions,” Halafoff says. “These programs have been studied and do have a beneficial effect, in terms of increasing inter-religious understanding and respect. “In the new national curriculum in Australia, there are many opportunities to teach about diverse religion and world views, and there is also an appreciation of the importance of learning about a religion and spirituality.” Australian and New Zealand Association

ictorian scholars and educators have found that there’s a need for a non-religious ethics education to be included in the school curriculum. Dr Anna Halafoff, a representative of Religion, Ethics and Education Network of Australia (REENA) and a lecturer in sociology at Deakin University, says there has been a shift in people’s attitudes. “Since the 1970s, we have become increasingly multifaith and religiously diverse, but also the percentage of people who are identifying as not having a religious affiliation is steadily growing,” she says. Understanding this need, Ivanhoe Grammar School offers life matters and beliefs and ethics education as part of its religion and humanities classes. Its aim is to provide students with an understanding of where they fit in the world and to learn a positive view of themselves. The school’s director of well-being, Judy Hewett, says: “We think it’s important for students to understand their own spirituality in the context of where they are living and how they are living and how that affects the way they live. “We’ve taken the most important parts of religion, values and faith and incorporated it into ethics and character strengths.” The Anglican school began beliefs and ethics education five years ago and offers the subject to students in years 7 to 9. In year 7, students begin with their beliefs, then progress to the Christian views of Jesus and Bible study. Using films and discussion in

year 8, students learn about character traits and then move to world views, including Aboriginal Dreamtime and Babylonians’ and Christians’ opposing views. In year 9, in-depth study explores Islam’s history and Islam today, ethical theories, and different beliefs on death and dying. In each year level, they also learn meditation and mindfulness, and visit places of worship. Hewett says the students are engaged in the curriculum. “Because it’s not exam-driven, we can afford to spend longer on things that they are absorbed by and we have flexibility with it, and parents welcome it,” she says. At Eltham College of Education, this kind of

education incorporates philosophical and explorative elements as well as community-minded activities. As an independent school, the college teaches well-being as well as world religions from a phenomenal perspective, created and taught by a multidisciplinary team of teachers known as learning advisers. In years 3 and 4 the beliefs learning takes a philosophical approach, and it develops to a community-action program in the later years. In year 7, students complete a culture and identity project on the books, rituals, demographics and tenures of Islam, Hinduism, Christianity, Buddhism and Judaism.\ aallan@theweeklyreview.com.au

Parade College

A WORLD OF OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOUNG MEN Parade is the oldest Edmund Rice school in Australia, dating back 142 years, so we have a pretty good handle on what makes boys tick. We’re proud of our history and the many traditions we still uphold today and meld them with current best practice for educating boys. We have educational options for all boys, no matter where their interests lie. For boys intending on tertiary studies, our range of academic subjects numbers more than 40. Our Bunjil Park sports facility – comprising

soccer pitch, running track, six tennis courts and long jump pit – is nothing short of amazing. Our arts department proudly calls triple Grammy winner Wally deBacker, aka Gotye, a former protege and our trade training centre is paradise for boys intending on trade careers. Book in for one of our fortnightly family tours (dates on the website) and get a feel for how the College operates on a normal school day. Parade really does offer a world of opportunities for young men. www.parade.vic.edu.au

REAL ESTATE IS OUR WORLD OFF-MARKET SALES:

By combining local knowledge, experience and exceptional negotiation skills, hockingstuart’s inner north team consistently achieves outstanding results. No two properties are the same. As seasoned campaigners, we know how to identify and leverage the unique characteristics of each home to deliver the best possible result for our vendors. While many properties require a comprehensive marketing campaign to draw in the crowds, others may be suited to a more discrete, no-fuss approach. In addition to the recent results illustrated, we have successfully negotiated many sales ‘off market’, without so much as a photograph to assist in the sale. With a track record built on diligent work and an intimate understanding of the market and those searching within it, the team at hockingstuart is proven to be one of the most accomplished agencies in the inner north. If you’re thinking of selling, or would just like a current appraisal of your property’s value, call your local hockingstuart office today.

COLLINS SIMMS INNER CITY UPDATE Even the most optimistic followers of the Melbourne real estate market did not predict property prices to continue to track upwards for the ďŹ rst half of this calendar year in most sections of the market. Yes, we have historically low interest rates but we also have an economy that is hardly growing and robust. We say, some sections of the market, because the Melbourne real estate market is made up of many different types of markets and each of those markets can be performing very differently from other sections. The house market in the inner city can be divided into three sections, below $1,000,000, $1,000,000 to $1,500,000 and over $1,500,000. For example this year in the inner city we have regularly seen strong competitive auctions in the lower and middle sections of the market and good results but less competitive auctions in the upper section. Therefore different strategies are required for different properties. The apartment market is different again, the strongly competitive auctions seem to be reserved for those that offer Stephen Whitelaw, something special whether that be location, style or design appeal. As always supply and demand impacts on the sale prices of all Director sections of the market. Strong results are often easier to achieve in the quieter winter months as we are currently experiencing. What is installed for us for the remainder of the year? We are predicting the present market to continue through to Christmas. How a person intending to sell gets the best result from the market comes down to receiving good advice and careful planning. Select a selling agent who will put time into your campaign and treat the sale as if it was their own. Collins Simms has been assisting people sell inner city real estate since 1980.

We felt that there was a need for a property management company to offer clients a level of service similar to what is expected in sales. We are pleased to report that this new venture has been enthusiastically received by the market and is growing strongly. The rental market is solid but price sensitive. A well presented property offered at the correct market rental will have no trouble attracting potential tenants.
