t’s one of life’s great ironies that my Ishows addiction to recipe books and TV cooking means I have very little time to actually

cook. I’ve been known to spend an entire Saturday afternoon salivating over the latest Yotam Ottolenghi tome or binge-watching Shane Delia’s Spice Journey on catch-up TV, only to find it’s 7pm, the kids are hungry and we need to phone out for Thai. Things are only likely to get worse now that season eight of MasterChef has kicked off. The gold standard of all TV cooking shows, MasterChef’s winning mix of drool-worthy MasterChef’ dishes, high-stakes drama and relatable contestants has long been like crystal meth to we food-porn addicts. But now they’ve upped the ante, bringing in as guest judge one of the world’s most compellingly fascinating women, global food superstar, Nigella Lawson. I’ll be glued to the couch. If, like me, you can’t wait till the Nigella episodes go to air later this month, read our revealing interview inside. ●

PETER WILMOTH meets the domestic goddess

L

et’s clear this up from the start: Nigella Lawson chafes at her image as a sex symbol. Sitting with the woman they call the Domestic Goddess in a Melbourne hotel room, I can see a flicker of annoyance on her face when I bring up the sex symbol thing. Maybe it’s because she’s been asked about it so many times before. She’s certainly sensitive about the whole topic. Still, as artless as she might consider the description, I’m not going to avoid the issue. We all know all TV food shows have a shtick: Jamie Oliver is a cheeky chap; Rick Stein is a genial dag; Poh is a warm and giggling enthusiast; Heston is the scientist; Nigella is sexy. That’s the shorthand. Good on all of them, because viewers have bought into these brands – big time. But that’s not how the woman herself sees it. When I mention her past comments that she is the least salacious person she knows, she’s quick to agree. “I know,” she says. “People project on to you. When people say I’m doing innuendo, I haven’t got a clue why they think that. I know that it isn’t intended that way. “I am quite an intimate person and quite intense, but I am not coquettish. But I also do know that sometimes when I’m feeling a bit shy or awkward or embarrassed, sometimes it comes across as a sort of coyness.” She thinks it might be how she phrases things. “I’m not trying to be like a home economics teacher, not that I could be. I’m not talking down to people. I’m using the sort of language in the way that I would describe the food.” Anyway, she doesn’t like the whole sex symbol thing. “I’m not comfortable with it. I’m at an age where it feels quite amusing but …” A tiny shrug. “I don’t complain about it. There are a lot of things that feed into what makes us respond to someone on TV. This image you’re talking about is the glamour of TV itself and that isn’t necessarily to do with me.” Nigella, 56, is a blue-chip star, triple A-list, whatever you want to call it. People are fascinated by her. When I mentioned to friends that I was going to interview Nigella, their reaction was somewhere between envy and amazement. Being granted some one-on-one face-time with the Domestic Goddess is, clearly, no small achievement. Up close she’s welcoming but seems slightly awkward about doing an interview. It’s as though she is a bit bemused at the notion of celebrity, dismissive of the mythologising of the famous. It’s a disarming quality. She strikes me as someone who would be a great, laid-back lunch companion. She’s wearing all black: trousers and top and cardigan. It’s just us today (oh, all right, except for a publicist hovering in the corner). Nigella speaks in that charming, upper-crust Hugh Grant style, smart and confident enough to um and ah and take one’s time to gather one’s thoughts and make one’s point. It’s all very English and very conversational, as though she’s just ruminating over a long lunch, which is indeed what she loves to do. Her speech and poise reflect her privileged start in life (her father Nigel Lawson is a peer of the realm and was Britain’s chancellor of the exchequer) but you could hardly say she has had an easy life. She lost her mother and her first husband, Sunday Times columnist John Diamond, to cancer, both in their 40s, and her beloved sister Thomasina died of breast cancer in her early 30s. Then in 2013 Nigella made international headlines when she was photographed with her second husband, 6 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ MAY 11, 2016

Charles Saatchi, with his hand around her throat. The couple soon ended their 10-year marriage. Later that year Nigella was embroiled in an ugly court case involving two former assistants, who accused her of using cocaine. While I’ve been advised by Nigella’s minders not to ask about personal matters, I do inquire whether work has been a solace during the tough times. She pauses for a moment. “Work is necessary because without work you don’t pay the bills. But yes, of course, work is important and it gives a structure. “But I don’t know that I look for solace in life. Yes I’ve had tough times. Everyone does, but I’ve also got a lot to be very grateful for. But I would say simply that human beings look for purpose in life and I enjoy what I do, and I also enjoy cooking because I’ve got friends coming round.” I mention that through all her difficulties, she has shown remarkable resilience. “I realised when I was quite young that human beings are much more resilient than they think they are. On the whole, most human beings would rather not find that out.”

N

igella started her career as a newspaper book reviewer and restaurant critic and moved into freelance journalism and then cookbooks which, she says, have become a version of an autobiography. “When I look at my books, the recipes are to me like a diary or a photograph album. They are so much part of what I’d been cooking at that stage of my life. “In my first book I’ve got a chapter on weaning and feeding infants and toddlers. Another has a section on teen feasts. When I discovered baking I wrote a book about that. I write about what I’m cooking at the time … might be how old my children are, or a sudden enthusiasm I get.” She didn’t plan to move into television and make cooking shows,

the medium that made her a worldwide superstar: “I’m not a planner,” she says. Did she envisage a life like this? “No, not remotely. I thought I’d stay a journalist. Earlier than that I thought I’d be an academic. I’m not a performer and I’m not really driven to do things publicly. But the thing is – maybe this comes from being a journalist – I have a desire to communicate.” The demands of TV were different to writing. “I like writing. I get very absorbed, like the feeling I get when I cook. Once I’m in it I like communicating my enthusiasm and my ideas. When I do TV that moment before the director says ‘action!’ is the worst. It’s terrifying but exciting as well. In a way I make it easy for myself because I’m not scripted so I do that, like filling the empty page.” There’s no doubting Nigella, now worth an estimated ₤15 million ($28.5 million), has created an extraordinary global brand. She’s the untrained “home” cook, moving stylishly around the kitchen (her own for a while), not adhering slavishly to the recipe and gently showing us what to do in that famously mellifluous sing-song voice that could melt a block of dark chocolate at five paces. It was, of course, TV gold. Why the popularity? “It’s very hard to look at yourself from the outside,” she says. “How I view myself is very much from a different [perspective]. There is something about television where people project things on to you, which aren’t necessarily to do with the person they’re projecting things on to. There’s this strange intimacy of television because you’re coming into people’s homes. “I think people can see that I am being me. Television gives a slightly glamorised version … but I’m not trying to be someone I’m not. And I cook in the same ways that people at home cook. Every now and again someone will say, ‘Someone should teach her knife skills’. Well you don’t need knife skills to cook your family’s supper. It doesn’t matter if you take a bit longer and it’s a bit clumsy.” She’s about keeping it real – not easy when you’re uber-glamorous and a worldwide star. “TV is in one sense completely artificial; my programs are half an hour and yet there I am cooking five things that would go on for four hours or whatever. “Your hair’s done, your make-up’s on, the lighting’s meant to make you look better than you do, and so on. But even if it’s artificial, it’s also quite a good phoniness detector. On the whole I don’t think TV works if people are not [themselves].” She has been on the quest to keep it real from the

NIGELLA EFFECT

beginning. “When I did the first series I did it at home because I didn’t really want to do TV, so I said, ‘Well, if I can do it in my own home and not be scripted, I’ll do it’. That gave it a straightforwardness and intimacy that was different from being behind a counter with a fixed camera just doing the recipes.” I ask how international recognition sits with her – when she wanders down to the shops does she sometimes wish that people weren’t looking at her? “I walk to the shops very easily. Maybe being short-sighted is also useful. “Generally speaking if someone wants to come up and say, ‘I love the recipes’ or ‘I love your shows’ that’s a nice thing. I’m grateful. I do think writing or talking about food is a form of communication and people want to communicate back, and I understand that.” Nigella was in Melbourne to film a series of episodes of MasterChef MasterChef, which will air later this month, featuring the Domestic Goddess as a guest judge. I ask whether she is a fan of the food-as-reality-TV format? “The difficulty with a lot of chef-led cooking is that as much as it can be inspiring it can be quite intimidating because it’s difficult. So it’s good to have all sorts of food on TV. It’s a way of understanding the world. How people cook and what they cook is a very intimate part of where they come from. It’s so difficult to separate the food that we eat from the people we are.” When she was in town, there was little time for leisure. But she says she did enjoy dining at George Calombaris’ Press Club, as well as Andrew McConnell’s Cutler & Co. Our famous Aussie beaches weren’t a drawcard, though. “I am not a beach person. If I were here on holidays I’d be going round and eating more. I love to see the sky and the sea but I don’t like to be on the beach.” Our time is up. I finish by asking when she’s at her happiest. “I’m quite fortunate in that I really love company but I also like being by myself and being lazy as well,” she says. “Pottering in the kitchen and lying on the sofa reading.” For a global superstar, she seems to like the same sort of things as the rest of us. ● pwilmoth@theweeklyreview.com.au » Nigella will appear as guest judge on MasterChef in five episodes from May 22-26 on Channel Ten.

Ask the wine guy do I often smell capsicum in Q Why sav blanc? There’s a compound called A methoxypyrazine that’s responsible for the vegetal aromas you’re smelling

in your sav. These aromas range from asparagus to tomato leaf, to capsicum and gooseberries, and they’re found in sauvignon blanc and its child, cabernet sauvignon. These green, herbaceous characters are more often found in sauvignon grown in cooler climates – think Marlborough in New Zealand – and lose their intensity as the grapes ripen. ● GOT A QUESTION EMAIL \

Dominique Portet Sauvignon Blanc 2015 (Yarra Valley) $28; 13.5%

One of three Dog Point barrel-series wines, fermented in oak barrels. It’s sav blanc the way I like it. There’s always a red capsicum aroma in Section 94 and it’s here, along with yellow fruits, tomato leaf and citrus. There’s also a smoky element. Textural and rich in the mouth, there’s vibrancy, grip and a floral perfume in the mouth. ●

Here’s a white that needs a decant. It opens up a little reductive – that’s polite for a sulphur smell – but that blows off with a decant. Waiting to burst out are bright and floral aromas of yellow fruits, capsicum, citrus and spice. It’s textural and bright, with layers of personality and length. There’s energy, grip and a mineral line to the finish. ●

The grapes were grown on close-planted sauvignon blanc vines before being fermented in 600-litre barrels. Subtle and elegant, with herbal and tropical notes, it’s bright and fresh, complex and intense. Driving lemon and grapefruit, plus lemongrass flavours are seamless. The combination of flavour, texture and a light grip give this a real presence. ●

ur perceptions of “pub grub” are often driven by the British model – stodge and stout with a side of brown. However, had Vasco da Gama just hurried up his tuchus a little more, our pub scene would be more like the taparias on the Mediterranean coastline. Enter: Mount Erica Hotel. Or, more specifically, its conquistadors via MoVida Next Door, chef Sunny Gilbert and restaurant manager Ross Murray. They’ve overhauled the menu, curated a fresh wine list and introduced live music and food-truck Sundays. You can bring the family (chicken pincho skewers are perfect for fussy eaters), the entire office, or sit by the fire with a glass of Pedro Ximenez. Kick things off with classic conservas such as tuna belly and mussels, or tapas like white anchovy on a big potato chip with freeze-dried tomato, and crumbed artichokes with aioli and lemon (a triumph). The pick of the mains is Aylesbury duck – all crispy skin and fall-apart flesh. The specials comprise whatever Sunny scores from the fishmonger. My favourite, grilled cuttlefish with squid ink, plus parsley and garlic sauce, is mouth-party kinda eating. Finish with creme a la cassonade and you’ll coast home in a custardy haze. ● aliceinframes@theweeklyreview.com.au

THEATRE BOY OUT OF THE COUNTRY Hawthorn Arts Centre and Larrikin Ensemble Theatre present this funny, fast-paced play that tells a story of land, family and belonging. A family property, worthless for generations, is suddenly rezoned to become part of a regional housing estate. At the same time, Hunter (Martin Blum) returns after a seven-year absence. Award-winning poet and playwright Felix Nobis has created a play that explores where an old Australia meets a new Australia and where new technologies have the potential of uncovering old secrets.

THE MAN OF MODE

THE MAN OF MODE Dark, sexy, and acid-tongued, this comedy of manners returns to the stage. A fresh translation with a modern twist, The Man of Mode proves that people don’t change, no matter how many generations might pass. Based on a play from the 1670s and set in Restoration London, The Man of Mode follows a cast of lovers and losers, and serves up the perennial battle of the sexes with wit, elegance, and comedy. This classic comedy highlights the staying power of this kind of satire – not only do audiences still love to laugh at it, actors and writers also still love to play with it. ■ May 18-29, Tuesday-Saturday 8pm, May 28 3pm, May 29 6pm.

THE SOUND OF MUSIC Get out your lederhosen, MUSICAL the Von Trapps are in town. This big-hearted musical, immortalised on film by Julie Andrews and co, has been given a 21st-century spruce-up and arrives off the back of a record-breaking run at London’s Palladium. The Australian production sees Cameron Daddo return to the stage as Captain Von Trapp, opposite rising star Amy Lehpamer as the irrepressibly chipper Maria. Legendary musical star Marina Prior joins them as the devious Baroness Schraeder. ■ Regent Theatre, opens May 13, $89.90-$140.90, soundofmusictour.com.au

The Fighter by Arnold Zable \ Text Publishing, $27.99 textpublishing.com.au

Best known as a novelist, Melbourne’s Arnold Zable turns his flair for creating colourful characters towards a real-world example. His biography of Henry Nissen (boxer, dock worker and tireless do-gooder) is a true story that reads like wonderful fiction, ducking and weaving between past and present to create a moving portrait of one of our city’s most remarkable men. In doing so, Arnold delicately directs us to the parts of Melbourne we often try not to notice. ●

WATCH

David Bowie famously described Bob Dylan’s voice as “sand and glue”. Paul Dempsey has a similar grit to his throaty roar, which finds a new power in his second solo LP. Opener The True Sea is a staggering and seductive seven minutes, setting the tone for an eclectic road movie of a record. The GPS is set for Springsteen-esque Americana, but detours make for a rich album. ●

SARAH MURPHY Sarah Murphy is the founder of bespoke bath, beauty and home brand Murphy and Daughters. She started making her products in her own home with the help of her daughters Posy and Lola. “The basic premise was to try and make everything as naturally as possible, as sustainably as possible,” Sarah says. She lives in South Yarra and still makes most of her products from her home.

I love South Yarra

Where do you go for a great cup of coffee? I’d go to the Pound cafe off Oxford Street. I love the two guys that run it and they make a fantastic coffee and it’s incredibly consistent – they make the perfect cup of coffee. For a fantastic meal? Thirty-Eight Chairs. It’s absolutely weeny and tiny, the food is incredibly authentically Italian. It’s almost feels like you’re in Italy because it’s down a little laneway. To buy the perfect gift? Of course I’d shop online at Murphy and

Daughters! Otherwise I love Leonard Joel Auction House because it is a trove of treasures and there’s only one of each. Just going to look is fun even if you don’t need anything. But if you are looking for a really special wedding gift for example, you can find really unique gifts, say a pair of old heavy silver serving spoons or a perfect Robur teapot. To pamper yourself? I’d get my hair done at Mr Spry over in Armadale. They’re my go-to, they’re the best hairdressers in Melbourne. To get some exercise? I got to One Hot Yoga, that’s my favourite place. I go between the really hot room and the slightly hot room. It only takes an hour but you feel incredibly stretched and relaxed at the end of it. For some fresh produce? Definitely Prahran Market. My favourite stall is the Damian Pike mushroom stall – all the vegetables are so great and he’s gorgeous. ● JEMIMAH CLEGG

NICA CIRCUS ARTS

The varying activities and new tricks make circus arts an exciting way of exercising.

The promise As well as offering a Bachelor of Circus Arts course, the National Institute of Circus Arts also offers short courses for beginners that run in groups after work hours. Classes focus on activities such as juggling, handstands, trapeze, tumbling and trampolining.

The pain factor The nature of circus means there will always be a level of risk involved. That being said, NICA is a very controlled environment and I felt most at ease thanks to John’s professionalism and experience. Who should try it? Sick of your Pilates class? Feel like reigniting your gymnastics skills or looking for a fun way to exercise? Circus arts is certainly different and is aimed at all ages, body types, skills and fitness levels.

The reality My first thought: this isn’t really a beginners’ class. Upon being asked to forward roll across a room full of people who looked like experts, I considered bolting out the door. After some encouragement from my instructor John, I discovered that I could do it – even cartwheels and handstands! With the support of John and the group, I found myself perched horizontally above the ground as well as standing atop a human pyramid. By building trust relationships with classmates, you feel more comfortable to push the boundaries.

The bill At $440 a term; a single come and try class costs $40.

WOULD I DO IT AGAIN?

(JULIAN MEEHAN)

The pay-off That was a serious workout. I found myself using muscles that have been in hibernation for a long time. During the class, however, you hardly think about the physical exertion because you’re so focused on the task at hand.

n the past, school bullies were those stereotypical kids in the playground; students who were bigger than most and had a gang of friends to help them get their way. This stereotype now seems outdated because with the invention of new technology a new type of bully has emerged. They don’t need the strength of their muscles and popularity – these bullies just need a smartphone and an internet connection to harass via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat. It’s a phenomenon known as social media bullying or cyber bullying.

online space and mitigate cyber bullying. He says young children and teenagers need guidance online, just as they do in real life, when it comes to social interaction. As such, parents and other adults should be encouraging children to be good global citizens and respectful with their interactions. “Teaching and guiding kids in social connections in real life and really distinguishing between what’s a healthy relationship and what’s an unhealthy relationship really helps the kids mitigate cyber bullying. “If a child has not learned real-life connection, then the online connection is all that they have. “When bullying happens within that space – it’s always going to happen because they’re children – having that resilience can help them.” “That doesn’t mean that bullying is OK but that first line of defence is to identify that ‘this is bullying’ and ‘who can I talk to’.” He says keeping children connected to social media also helps. “Some parents want to cut their kids off with the social connection – that’s kind of throwing the baby out with the bath water, because not only are the cyber bullies on their social space, so are their friends – their social support network.”

what does bullying on social media involve?

Students receiving nasty, threatening or hurtful messages through social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter; Sending photos and/or videos of the student to others to embarrass them; Spreading rumours through social networking sites (or text messages); People setting up fake profiles pretending to be a particular student – including posting messages or status updates.

Tips for parents

Why does it happen?

According to social media and technology expert and University of Melbourne associate professor Shanton Chang, cyber bullying happens simply because children are children. Bullying is not a new behaviour, even if bullying through social media is relatively new. Real life helps dealing with bullies online

Shanton says equipping children to deal with “real-life” friendships and interactions helps them to negotiate the

Shanton says parents often ask him if they should be friends with their kids’ friends on Facebook. He tells them: “Well, you could but you need to understand that when your kids are playing in a soccer field on a Saturday morning, you are not on the pitch. “You can watch the game but they need to play and discuss any issues with you after. You have to have those conversations offline.” ●

Connecting school communities M

elbourne schools are embracing the digital world like never before and social media is playing a key role in their strategies to connect and grow their school communities. Students are being educated about online behaviour and being good global citizens online – and about how valuable having a positive and professional social media presence is once they reach the VCE. Firbank Grammar’s director of digital learning, Paul Mears, says the school teaches students about digital citizenship and appropriate online behaviour from prep through to year 10 as part of the curriculum. He says the social media environment is constantly changing, with research showing fewer teenage students using Facebook and more using short-messaging social media environments such as Snapchat (where photos, videos and drawings can be posted and shared with friends but disappear after 10 seconds). These systems offer a more closed kind

educators embrace the risks & rewards of online platforms of social interaction than traditional social media platforms such as Facebook or Twitter. “More recently students are beginning to set up their online presence in a really positive and professional way,” Paul says. “They’re taking a LinkedIn-style approach to their online presence and social media use … because, once they’re 18, students are on the job market as professionals. “In some courses, universities are looking at other selection criteria apart from ATAR and a student’s online professional presence can assist this process. Universities like Deakin are being very innovative in their approach to this.” Similarly at Xavier College, social media is part of the curriculum and eLearning

co-ordinators – based at each of the school’s three campuses – are teaching young students how to be responsible citizens online. Xavier’s year 6 students are registered for the Alannah and Madeline Foundation’s eSmart Digital Licence, which aims to keep children safe from online bullying and teach them about social media’s risks and rewards.

students to be smart users of any digital device. Subjects include learning about protecting privacy, communicating safely and respectfully online and dealing with unwanted contact from strangers. The college also invites guest speakers along to talk to students about digital safety. Recently, Xavier has introduced a student working group that has teamed with the marketing department to promote the school and learn how to effectively use social media. While students are learning via social media in schools, so are the teachers. Educators at MLC in Kew are using social media as a way to connect and learn from other teachers. The school’s director of staff learning and research, Rowena Dudgeon, says teaching staff are encouraged to connect with other educators via social media as part of MLC’s Professional Growth Model. “Social media is a big part of staff learning,” Rowena says. “Staff are really responsible for going out and connecting with amazing educators through Twitter – and LinkedIn is really good for networking. “We’re particularly encouraging that this year, to get teachers connecting to educators globally and outside of Kew,” she says. Marcellin College in Bulleen has learnt the value of social media. The school is the most followed secondary college in Australia on Twitter, with more than 350,000 followers. Deputy principal Adriano Di Prato

says social media has enabled the school to connect to its entire community – students, staff, parents, business partners, Old Collegians and their families – in an “unprecedented” way. “Social media platforms like Twitter and LinkedIn allow us to shape and share our college’s remarkable story, highlighting the everyday successes and hard work of our students and staff,” Adriano says. “[It’s] the best way to connect with people, express ourselves, enabling all in our community to discover what’s happening,” he says. “Parents in particular love to connect to what their son is learning and experiencing on a daily basis. They feel part of their son’s learning journey. It becomes a positive two-way conversation.” Adriano says he advises schools to embrace the power and reach of social media. “School communities need to employ policies and practices that enable access to social media platforms for learning and communication, while understanding the associated risks and challenges. School leaders need to also consider how social media platforms can be used to attract prospective staff. “And, finally, it’s important to remember that engagement has to be earned. Schools need to invest time and resources in building their social media presence and ensure that what they post is an honest and true reflection of their learning community.” ● melissa.heagney@theweeklyreview.com.au

Share enough P

arents have wanted to share their children’s special moments with family and friends since time immemorial (or at least since people started painting on cave walls). What has changed, especially in the past decade or so, is the way parents are sharing these proud achievements. Photos and certificates used to be brought out at family gatherings. More recently, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter have become the norm for sharing personal moments with friends and followers. It’s a trend called “sharenting”. With the rise of sharenting has come a host of issues for parents to grapple with. One is when mums and dads share embarrassing childhood photos or posts without their children’s consent. Then there are more sinister problems caused by sharing on social media – unscrupulous people can easily track down and befriend children online or, worse, share those photos on so-called “dark” websites. University of Melbourne social media

and technology expert, associate professor Shanton Chang, says posting photos of children on Facebook or other social media is like posting a billboard. “People love to post photos of their babies and their children online without putting on the privacy settings,” he says. “That’s like putting photos of your kids on your fence in front of your house and just inviting people to have a look.” He says once photos are posted, even with privacy settings, parents have no control over where the pictures end up. “Even if they think it’s just family and friends [they’re sharing with], it’s really not because there’s always someone who is an oversharer and has no privacy settings,” he says. Shanton says children might not be concerned now, but those cutely embarrassing baby and toddler photos can have an impact in the future – including when prospective employers search the internet looking at a potential staff member’s online presence.

(ISTOCK)

Avoid the pitfalls of being an oversharer

“I have a joke now that people are taking so many photos of their babies and toddlers that this will be the stuff of nightmares when their children turn 21,” he says. It’s an issue even Google chief executive Eric Schmidt has weighed into, warning that children will have to change their names in the future to escape their cyber pasts. But it’s not all bad news. While there are these important issues for mums and dads to consider, there are also positive reasons to share parenting experiences via social media. These include building or being part of a worldwide community of parents who can share tips, gathering information on raising

children and gaining emotional support from family or friends who might not be close by. A Pew Research Centre study published in the US last year found the majority of parents surveyed used social media for support. “The value parents find in social media echoes what we’ve found in a broader population – it’s an effective way to share information and connect with others,” study co-author and Pew research associate Maeve Duggan says. Australian parenting websites also recommend families, including single parents, use social media as a support. ● melissa.heagney@theweeklyreview.com.au » raisingchildren.net.au/articles/single_ parents_help_and_support.html

APPY & SOCIAL MINDS 1

Use social media privacy settings. Also lso pay attention to privacy policies of sites and apps; they are always different.

2

Think twice about your social media posts. Bear in mind that information online is there forever. What you post now can have ramifications in the future.

3

As a good rule of thumb, don’t share posts about other people’s kids (unless they’re happy for you to do so).

4

Keep information on social media general. The internet is a great source of tips and advice but, if you’re asking for advice, make sure your child or children can’t be identified. ●

Tips for parents

nxiety, depression and eating disorders are just some of the mental health issues Melbourne students sometimes have to deal with. Students will often seek support and information online or from social media. It’s something the Young and Well Co-operative Research Centre knows a lot about. YAWCRC, based in Abbotsford, explores and researches the role of the digital world and technology in the lives of young people. It looks at how social media and apps can be used to offer support and promote mental health and well-being to students. YAWCRC chief executive, associate professor Jane Burns, says the organisation’s research shows that 99 per cent of young people are online daily. “Technologies allow us to reach out and engage with young people in a space where they actually are, and where they feel comfortable; making it easier for them to overcome many of the barriers to seeking help or information,” she says. Jane says 75 per cent of people who develop a mental illness do so before the age of 25 and the YAWCRC team is often asked by concerned parents and students themselves how to identify the signs and symptoms of mental health issues. The centre connects parents

and young people to information from groups such as Headspace or Kids Helpline. “It’s really tough to know as a parent and as a young person … whether it’s normal or not,” Jane says. YAWCRC also connects researchers with people aged 12-25 in its Youth Brains Trust. They are looking at ways to use technology to deal with issues such as cyber bullying and mental health and well-being. Such partnerships have prompted the creation of apps and games that, for example, encourage young people to get enough sleep and exercise to improve mental health (an app called Recharge) and to meditate to reduce anxiety (ReachOut). “It’s not about being an online or offline offering, but about offering 24/7 wraparound care and support,” Jane says.

She says the move into the teenage years brings challenges for parents and students. “A carer or parent is no longer as relevant as a student’s peers in adolescence … they get great support from their peers.” She says parents need to encourage their children to seek out information on mental health and well-being. This can be as simple as putting magnets from Headspace or Kids Helpline on the fridge. “Young men often don’t want to talk but having the conversation can start that process of help-seeking,” she says. “Mental health issues can affect anyone. The earlier you seek help, the more likely you are to get well and continue in school or university studies.” ● melissa.heagney@theweeklyreview.com.au » youngandwellcrc.org.au

Social in the media

young people need guidance to avoid bad decisions about what they post

I

f popular culture has taught tweens and teenagers anything, it’s that both fame and infamy can be found via social media. Pop star Justin Bieber is a case in point. Justin was made famous after his singing talent was discovered on YouTube in 2007. Recently, he has courted controversy for some of his “bad boy” behaviour on social media, including naked photos and allegedly smoking marijuana while on tour. While it may seem the domain of celebrities to deal with such publicity via the media, the bad behaviour of students in Melbourne, via a video, photo or social media post, is also becoming headline news – nationally and around the world. Student fights filmed on smartphones, or Instagram photos during schoolies week, are

he first thing that strikes you about Oslo Davis’s lounge is that the painting is hung rather low on the wall for a – wow, is that a Drysdale? Move a little closer and you discover a Banksy has been added to the scene in the cartoonist and illustrator’s own tongue-in-cheek take on The Cricketers. As you might expect from Oslo, an Age reader favourite for the wry observational wit of his Overheard series and pithy cartoons,

there’s no place for pretension in the Footscray weatherboard he shares with his Japanese wife Mika and their two daughters. “I like that Footscray is away from the art world and galleries. The communities and cultures are what interest us,’’ he says. “When it comes to decoration, everything I have, at least in my studio or on the walls, is put there to inspire me or to aspire to.” ● SARAH HARRIS sharris@theweeklyreview.com.au

PLU TO

This work was part of a series I did called Improvements on Australian Art, where I chose four artworks and tried to modernise them. In this one Banksy helped put a new spin on Russell Drysdale.

ELEPHANT My grandfather Jack was in World War II and brought this elephant back from Borneo. I have a suspicion the tusks are ivory, which is very wrong. With something of that age, from that area, it could well be.

(SCOTT McNAUGHTON)

Our Australian terrier, Pluto, is a great dog and very Wookie-like. He is very obedient, protective and very toilet-trained.

CARTO ON & ART BO OKS Sometimes when I get stuck for ideas I flick through books by some of my heroes and hopefully their magic will rub off on me. When it comes to joke cartoons, my favourites are probably The New Yorker cartoonists, especially Michael Maslin and the late Saul Steinberg.

CAMERA NINE-METRE BOOK This book called The Line is by one of my idols, Saul Steinberg. It is a landscape that plays with the idea of a line that goes for nine metres. Using that continuous line he creates different scenes and perspectives.

My grandmother Britt owned this old box Brownie pre-World War II. I take a lot of photos and like cameras, especially the family connection of this one.

CONNECTED & LUXURIOUS LIVING There’s an old saying in real estate and it is “location, location, location”. It would be hard to find a better one than at Longhouse in Hawthorn. The new apartment development is close to schools – everything from early learning centres to leading primary and secondary schools and Swinburne University – as well as being close to the best shopping, cafes, pubs, nightclubs and restaurants.

NUGGET OF WELSH GOLD 16 PEMBROKE STREET, SURREY HILLS, 3127

S

urrey Hills is a pearl of the east. It is 11 kilometres from the city and epitomises Melbourne’s leafy suburbs. The suburb opened up when the railway line came through in the 1880s and settlers gave its streets very British names that reminded them of the old country. There’s Durham, Empress, Kingston, Balmoral and Leopold, Windsor and Albert. Then there’s Pembroke, named after the historic centre in west Wales. This charming Victorian house in Pembroke Street is one of the oldest in the area, built c1890. It sits atop the hill in a street lined with period brick and weatherboard houses. It offers period style and modernity on more than 400 square metres of land. The back garden, with its canopy of oak trees, landscaping, deck, gazebo and water feature, is a real stunner and made for families who want to spread their wings and enjoy year-round indoor-outdoor living. The polychrome brick facade with pretty lace-trimmed verandah is classic Victorian. Two chimneys protrude above the slate roofline. The typical Victorian floor plan has a central arched hall with four rooms ranged off it. They are all bedrooms, each with an open fireplace, but they could easily be reconfigured as three bedrooms and a study if required. The main bedroom at the front has a wall of custom-built wardrobes and an impressive original open fireplace, which adds character to a house warmed by hydronic heating. Loads of original period details, from the ruby- and sapphire-coloured glass framing the front door to ceiling roses and cornices, show a respect for the house’s past. Original Baltic pine floorboards feature throughout. The bathroom, renovated a year ago and close to all bedrooms, includes a frameless glass shower, separate bath and stone benchtop. It is in today’s favoured palette of greys and white. “It is such a pretty house,” the vendor says. “I love walking

into that hall every time I open the front door. It’s got so much character.” The original bluestone step, which would once have led to an old lean-to and a jumble of small rooms, has been retained to mark the transition from the old part of the house to the renovated living area. The end of the hall marks the beginning of the family hub. An older renovation, it features an open-plan kitchen with blue-painted cabinets, a stainless-steel oven and white-tiled splashback. An island bench separates the cooking zone from the living area. Past the kitchen, the dining area has another open fireplace that burns real wood, flanked by two timber-framed windows that open out to the deck. A bank of bifold doors on the northern side of the dining area opens the interior to the deck. Built-in seating near the kitchen and dining area is a bonus and the entire deck, which wraps around the house, provides huge opportunity for outdoor living and dining. This is where the vendor and her family spend time soaking up the sun, relaxing with a morning coffee or enjoying a barbecue. Much thought has gone into designing the outdoor space. The designer deck is large enough to host a party, while watching children play in the back garden. Stepping down from the deck onto a wide path, the focus is on the gazebo at the back of the garden. Along the way, there are two sections of artificial lawn (grass won’t grow under the trees), plenty of play space and the water feature set in a stone wall. The solid, timber-roofed gazebo under the tree canopy is another space to relax and unwind. However, it also encourages one to reflect on what you get in Surrey Hills: a period house close to schools, parks and public transport for significantly less than a similar package in more celebrated suburbs a few kilometres west. ● MARIA HARRIS property@theweeklyreview.com.au

GLEN IRIS \ 16 VALENCY ROAD If there is a quintessential Glen Iris family home, this could be it. Maen Gwyn was built to last as a solid-brick Edwardian beauty in 1916, and its sympathetic renovation is equally timeless and classic. The house is centrally positioned on its 779-square-metre block, allowing for a front lawn, liquidambar and double carport behind secure gates; a wide side garden to the east; and, at the back, a pocket lawn and generous timber deck that wraps around three sides of the family room. Period features abound inside spacious rooms with high ceilings and timber floors. The sitting room and 6.6-metre-long dining room each have a box bay window seat under gorgeous leadlight window panes. The main bedroom sits between its en suite and a sunroom/study. There’s a second bedroom beside the modern bathroom, and two attic-style bedrooms plus a play room upstairs. The open-plan extension – comprising Smeg kitchen (newly remodelled), butler’s pantry and meals/living areas – echoes the ambience of the original, in pared-back style. Pairs of windows, french doors and sliding glass doors invite the garden greenery inside. The buyers will benefit from the recent removal of Burke Road’s boom gates, easing traffic and delivering a new Gardiner station. There are schools, parks and shops within walking distance. ● JACQUI HAMMERTON

Portsea residents wanting a city pied-a-terre are the potential market supplied by this townhouse, and city workers and downsizers will like it, too. Built in 2001, the two-storey property is the northerly one of seven in a Nicholas Day design. Its rendered, Georgian-style facade has full-length windows to the small front garden, and Tasmanian oak floorboards and white plantation shutters enhance the space inside. The ground floor opens with a large bedroom or study. The side hall runs past a powder room and a concealed laundry to the living and dining area, spacious and sunny with sliding doors to the west-facing courtyard. The timber kitchen has Smeg gas appliances and black granite and stainless-steel benchtops. Upstairs are two carpeted double bedrooms with built-in wardrobes and the bathroom. There’s a car space plus store room in the basement garage. Park Road’s ivy-clad tranquillity makes it an attractive hideaway. ● ALISON BARCLAY

SOUTH YARRA \ 29 NICHOLSON STREET This new two-level house cleverly meets the challenges of inner-suburban living. Its long front room with glass front wall can be a sitting room, a home office or a garage. Half of the ground floor is taken up by a north-facing living area with high ceilings. Flooring is American oak, and windows have dramatic black steel frames. The kitchen, with a marble central island bench, has fine cabinetry, integrated appliances and a rare separation of food preparation and dishwashing. A carefully landscaped garden and timber terrace or deck allow for sunny sitting and dining. An easy staircase leads up to three double bedrooms; two have balconies with distant and local views. The main bedroom has an entire wall of wardrobes. Its en suite contains a double vanity, shower and separate lavatory. The second bathroom offers two basins, a bath, shower, separate lavatory and neatly concealed cupboard laundry, but its most intriguing feature is its glass floor that transmits light from a skylight above to the kitchen below. Hydronic panels throughout, air-conditioning in the upper floor, and a gas log fire ensure year-round comfort. This area of South Yarra is rapidly being redeveloped. It has good public and private schools and proximity to Toorak Road and Chapel Street. Its tree-lined streets offer a quiet environment. ● NEIL CLEREHAN

With a clean design, contemporary interior and sensible floor plan, this two-storey family house smartly throws bedrooms and living spaces into the mix on both levels. The interior begins with glossy tiles in the central hall extending to the rear living spaces. The remote-controlled double garage has internal access and sits opposite a large carpeted bedroom. Heading towards the rear, the hall branches to a powder room, laundry and study, before opening to an open-plan family room, dining room and kitchen. Here, pendant and down lights, the glossy tiling, Caesarstone benches, stainless-steel appliances and large windows project a luxurious tone. Outside, a covered deck precedes a fenced yard. The remaining four bedrooms are upstairs. Carpeted throughout, the first floor is also home to a large rumpus room. Each of the three smaller bedrooms feature built-in wardrobes, while the main bedroom at the back has twin walk-in wardrobes, a spa en suite and a covered private balcony with views over Connor Street Reserve. ● JULIAN HEALEY
