n this age of Netflix bingeing and VPNs, Imonth Play School’s 50th birthday celebrations this have given me a warm, fuzzy feeling.
When my now-teenage kids were little, I loved tuning in to see that Big Ted and the square window had barely changed since I sat on my own mum’s knee to watch. The show is a shared, comforting thread that connects my own distant childhood with my kids’ brave new world of YouTube and Pokemon Go. Now I like to imagine a time when my kids might watch Play School with their children. Bring on the diamond jubilee! In a funny way Play School has much in common with that other stalwart of Aussie TV, Neighbours, which celebrated 30 years on air last year. Both have kept us tuning in over the decades with a winning mix of feel-good vibe and a revolving door of famous faces. Now, following the lead of Kylie, Jason and Delta, radio star Fifi Box is set to move into Ramsay Street. Read this week’s cover story to find out more about the star behind the voice. ●

ifi Box’s smile enters the room first, bathing all in her path in sunny warmth. It’s the same infectious grin that can be detected in the vivacious blonde’s voice curling around the ears of listeners to make her one of Australia’s most-loved radio talents. These days there’s no underestimating the “Fifi factor”. Whether it’s working with her Fox breakfast co-host Dave Thornton and sidekick Brendan Fevola to chase down Melbourne’s established FM slot leader Eddie McGuire, adding some extra pop to Channel Ten’s The Project, or the unauthorised use of her face and name to sell women’s magazines, the girl from Wonga Park is an undeniably hot commodity. Now she’s set to extend her fan base internationally by joining the cast of Neighbours in a guest role that will see her on air from September into 2017. Fifi will play Brooke Butler, the wayward mother of Xanthe Canning (Lilly Van der Meer) and estranged girlfriend of Gary Canning (Damien Richardson) – “an opportunistic, flighty and dubious woman who relies on her looks to get by”. Add to Fifi’s mounting professional success the immense joy her now-three-year-old daughter Beatrix “Trixie” Belle has brought to her life and it’s small wonder she’s beaming. “I feel like I am in this incredible sweet spot in my life,” the 39-year-old says. “I am just strapped in for the ride and, honestly, who knows where this could go?” It started on Melbourne’s north-east fringe when solicitor Alan Box and wife Pauline welcomed their third child and only daughter. Very early on it became clear that Fiona, as she was christened but seldom called, had a mind of her own and was quite capable of turning others to it. “We used to holiday on Phillip Island in the caravan park,” says Pauline, better known as Pearl. “One day, a whole group of two or three families went down to the beach and were just walking along and Fifi decided she wanted to be carried. When no one would [carry her] she just lay down on the beach with her head buried face down in

the sand. We all kept walking thinking she would come running after us, but she didn’t budge. We hid behind some rocks to see what she would do and she still didn’t budge. So we went back and she got carried. She would have been only three at the time.” Fifi attended Tintern Grammar – then a girls-only school – where she excelled at English, drama and debating and was school captain at junior, middle and senior levels. She and her brothers Cameron (now an actor) and Kiernan (Augie March keyboardist) were drawn to the dramatic and creative fields early on. “Talk about destiny,” Pauline says with a laugh. “When she was nine or 10 Fifi and her brothers used to set up these studio situations where they would parody programs like the Today show. She would be Liz Hayes sitting there with big hair and shoulder pads, while one brother would be the male host and the other would do the weather.” Fifteen years later her daughter would find herself in a morning show’s TV studio in real life as a bubbly weather presenter and later entertainment reporter for Seven’s Sunrise. But first Fifi had to find her feet. “I was so insulated through my school life – very safe and protected,” she says. “I had spent my whole life going through school with the same 80 girls. And then at uni, no one cared. But you can’t carry around your school captain badge forever and I was like, ‘Oh no, I have to prove myself’. That was a difficult period.” Enrolling first in an arts degree at the University of Melbourne and then switching after six months to performing arts at Monash, Fifi finally settled into a Certificate in Commercial Radio at Swinburne in Hawthorn. Her first jobs were with regional stations 3TR Traralgon, 2MC/ROXFM Port Macquarie and then, edging closer to her goal of Melbourne, 3GG Warragul. All the while Fifi was sending out demo tapes and phoning program directors in Melbourne, to no avail. Becoming increasingly disillusioned, she decided to go overseas and see what London held for her.

hankfully Triple M in Sydney called and invited her to join them … for free. She packed up her purple Ford Festiva named Violet and headed north to become co-host of a national 10pm to midnight show about sex and relationships called Secret Men’s Business. “I worked for free for three months until they finally started paying me $150 a week. When they let Secret Men’s Business go after six months, I went back to doing mid-dawns, weekend shifts and started doing some work producing the breakfast show. “Fifteen years ago I was getting Amanda Keller and Mikey Robins breakfast every morning. I was a runner going to get their food – the most junior producer you could get on a breakfast show,” she says. When the breakfast show team invited female listeners to try to help end the drought by following an ancient Tibetan custom of tending the fields naked to bring on rain, it was Fifi who was dispatched to Parramatta Oval to orchestrate proceedings. Standing on stage in her ceremonial robe, there was only one possible response as 180 naked women starting chanting “get it off!”, she stripped off to join them. The drought didn’t end then, but there was a silver lining for Fifi who, a few months later, found herself filling in for Amanda Keller. She was such a success that, in 2003, she became part of a new syndicated drive
r Fifi as Brooks e Butle on Neighbour show The The Shebang Shebang with Marty Sheargold and Byron Cooke. “Signing that three-year contract, I thought, ‘Wow! This is everything I ever wanted’,” Fifi recalls. When it expired she signed on again – for a six-figure sum that made her one of the highest-paid women in radio. She was not yet 30. Fifi’s star was ascending on television too, and she was wowing audiences on Dancing With The Stars (2007) only to be pipped by Kate Ceberano in the grand final. She was equally impressive on the ratings hit Thank God You’re Here Here and, in 2008, well before her contract with Southern Cross Austereo was up, she was headhunted by Seven’s Sunrise to Sunrise Sunrise to become weather presenter. Fifi’s radio bosses eventually agreed to let her out of her contract if she kept doing a radio show. “So I did The Fifi Box Show every The Fifi Box Show Saturday morning for two years as well as working ridiculous hours at Sunrise,” she says. “I really did and always have given my career everything. “I had a couple of relationships in my 20s but that was never my primary focus. When Sunrise came Sunrise came up I was in a Sunrise relationship and my boyfriend at the time said, ‘We have been in a long-distance relationship for three years. If you take that job I am never going to see you’. I remember at the time going, ‘Aawww, oh well, I’m off’.” But there was one person who would succeed in getting Fifi to settle down, from the moment of her arrival on April 5, 2013. “Since Trixie came along I have really

“I thought I gave radio a shot, but no one wanted me,” she says. “I started working as a nanny. I was basically cleaning the family’s house and doing the ironing and I remember standing there thinking, ‘Maybe it’s not that bad. Get back in the ring Fifi’. I realised doors will shut in my face and people won’t give me jobs, but it is not personal. You wake up the next day and the sky doesn’t fall.” She returned to Melbourne after almost a year with a “dogged determination I was going to make something happen”. But not before she endured a few months working in the Australian Tax Office’s help centre. It was 2000 – the year the GST was introduced – and there may still be people waiting for Fifi’s explanation of Business Activity Statements (BAS). “I was so out of my depth that if someone asked me a question I didn’t understand – which was most of them – I would just disconnect the headset.”
created a home,” Fifi says. “Prior to her I was taking short-term leases. She locked me in. Being a mum has just been the biggest revelation for me. Everything before Trixie just felt black and white … she brought the technicolour, like that scene in The Wizard of Oz.” Fifi, who had been co-hosting the Today Network slot Fifi & Fifi & Jules Jules before going on maternity leave, had laid down some rules for herself before returning to air to host Fox FM breakfast in January 2014. The show is her “dream job”, but no longer her most important one. “I grew up listening to Grubby Grubby & Dee Dee Dee [Peter Stubbs and Diane Dunleavy], Tracy & Matt [Tracy Bartram and Matt Tilley], and Fox FM breakfast was the shift I could only dream about. I used to think if I got to be a Black Thunder [promotional vehicle] driver giving away icy cold cans of Coke I’d be happy,” Fifi says with a laugh. “But I always wanted to be a mum and when I became one, I stopped and reflected on what is really important in life. I’m not going to be, in five or 10 years, going ‘Please play with mummy’, ‘Gosh I wish I had put that phone away’. I get up at 4.15am and most days I am home by 11am or midday. When I walk away from work, she [Trixie] gets everything. “For a career-driven woman to want to be a great mum is a hard one to navigate unless we are really committed and strong to those rules. But I remember the time my mum spent with me and that is what I want
“Everything before Trixie just felt black & white … she brought the technicolour” for Trixie. My aim and my goal now, above any career goal, is to be a really present and focused mum.” And she’s determined to do it on her own terms. In spite of the increasingly wild women’s magazine headlines implying everything from more babies to beach weddings, it was not until her daughter’s third birthday that Fifi even confirmed the identity of Trixie’s father, when she posted a picture of former Ironman Grant Kenny playing peek-a-boo with the toddler on Instagram. “People who listen to me on the breakfast show know I am often telling them what is going on or personal things that are happening. I am happy to share as long as I am not doing it to someone else’s agenda and I am not going to engage with fictional made-up things,” she says. “If you were speaking to me as a 25-year-old, I was a little deer in headlights. I would be, like, ‘Why did you say that about me? I must fight to defend my name’. It’s the old adage; you can get upset and angry and have all that angst or you can be happy and enjoy. I would much rather shut my front door and play with my daughter, bake cupcakes, jump on the trampoline and be light and free.” ● email@example.com » Tune in to Fifi & Dave with Fev on Fox FM from 6-9am weekdays. fox.com.au/shows/fifi-dave

GRACE UNDER FIRE MYKE BARTLETT TALKS TO ACTOR & ACTIVIST SUSAN SARANDON
ctor, activist, model, Academy Award winner, grandmother, sex symbol. Try encapsulating Susan Sarandon in a sentence and you’ll end up with something faintly incongruous. With a career spanning four decades, the 69-year-old continues to defy conventions. While many screen actresses struggle to find parts her side of 50, Susan’s CV remains as lively as ever, with appearances in no fewer than five films this year alone. On top of that, she has recently been appointed a L’Oreal ambassador and made a rather buxom appearance in a Marc Jacobs campaign. Try a Google search for “ageing gracefully”, chances are you’ll end up with her picture. Down the phone from her New York office, ahead of her visit to Melbourne next month, Susan confesses she doesn’t feel she has any advice on that front. “I don’t feel very graceful; I feel like I’m just stumbling around,” she says. “I think it’s very hard for women in this business, because you’re scrutinised so strongly and you’re on a screen that’s so huge. If you see yourself up there looking horrible and you’re trying to get work, I
understand the temptation to do something drastic.” We’re speaking in a week when the press have had knives out for Meg Ryan, with reports claiming she had been left “unrecognisable” following an alleged bout of plastic surgery. The stories highlighted Hollywood’s double standard towards older women – one that requires them to be forever beautiful but viciously derides their attempts to be so. “I’ve no problem with people nipping and tucking and doing whatever they want but when it changes your face, that terrifies me,” Susan says. “The reason I haven’t done a lot of this stuff is I’m terrified by what I’ve seen. It changes you to look like some manifestation of fear, an impersonation of yourself. You don’t want to erase all of your experience.” Susan credits her staying power with a willingness to embrace that experience and play unglamorous roles other women might have resisted. “I’ve always thought of myself as a character actor, so it hasn’t been a huge transition for me. But a lot of the women I started out with, and I’ve been on this trip

since I was 20, have fallen away, for sure. There’s an amazing amount of ageism and sexism in the business. If you look at a script, there are a lot of places where women could play roles that just by habit and laziness and lack of imagination are cast as men.” Closer to home, Tina Arena and Noni Hazlehurst have recently called out the male-dominated entertainment industry for shutting out older women. This inequity is likely to be one of many hot topics raised during Susan’s Melbourne appearances as part of the La Dolce Italia festival, which celebrates Italian
Davis as highway robbers, has become something of a feminist classic. That it was never intended as such says a lot about ongoing inequality on the big screen. “When we made it, we were Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid except with trucks, you know? We didn’t realise how guarded that territory was by white, heterosexual men,’’ Susan says. “If you talk to Geena Davis, she’ll tell you not that much has changed. There haven’t been that many films like that. We thought there’d be so many because it was such a huge hit.”
“You don’t want to erase all of your experience” culture in Melbourne. In support of the Bully Zero Australia Foundation, Susan will grace an intimate lunch and evening session at the Regent Theatre, where she will engage the audience in frank and spontaneous discussion about films and pretty much anything else. “I usually prefer, no matter what the venue, to have a dialogue rather than speaking at people,” Susan says. “It gives me an opportunity to hear what people are thinking, what they’re curious about and what’s going on in worlds that I don’t travel in that often. That’s the nice thing about my job. I get to be exposed to so many different things and people and times that other people don’t get a chance to stumble into.” One film she will be talking about is the trailblazing Thelma and Louise, which this year celebrates its silver anniversary. The film, which stars Susan and Geena
Sticking with that theme, Susan’s next project will be another female double act. She’ll play Bette Davis to Jessica Lang’s Joan Crawford in Feud, an eight-part TV series about the rivalry between the two screen legends. While the show is looking backwards, Susan is keeping her gaze firmly on the present. “We’re asking the question, has the industry and its attitude to women changed that much? In the midst of it, you have these two women who could have taken on the world far more effectively had they teamed up rather then spending their time fighting each other.” ● firstname.lastname@example.org » An Evening With Susan Sarandon Regent Theatre, August 7, $165-$975 » ladolceitalia.com.au

Ask the wine guy Australian chardonnays Q Which are of the flinty chablis style? Chablis winemaker Louis Moreau A once told me chablis should be three things: “It should be fresh, it should be
crispy and it should be fruity.” Chablis has a fairly cold climate to grow grapes. Its wines, to me, are defined by acidity and a flinty, mineral character. Look to Australia’s cooler climates, maritime or inland with elevation. The Yarra Valley and Mornington Peninsula are good places to start. These wines aren’t trying to be chablis, but they are fresh, crispy and fruity, with more than a little je ne sais quoi. ● GOT A QUESTION EMAIL \
THE VINE W H AT T O D R I N K W I T H B E N T H O M A S
Singlefile Chardonnay 2014 (Great Southern) $30; 14.1% From Denmark, 4½ hours’ drive south of Perth. It’s complex and pretty delightful, with aromas of stonefruit, citrus, almond meal and flint. In the mouth there’s white nectarine, grapefruit and spice, plus texture and a racy mineral line of acid. It’s one of those wines that are so easy to drink you almost miss their complexity. ● Enjoy with \ Fish pie
Eldridge Estate Wendy Chardonnay 2014 (Mornington Peninsula) $50; 13% A tribute to Eldridge founder Wendy Lloyd. This is one of the most accomplished chardonnays I’ve tried in a while. There’s complexity in spades, with stonefruit, citrus, spice and a flinty aroma. Grapefruit and lemon make an appearance on the palate – and chalky mineral acid. ● Enjoy with \ Ripe, creamy Brie de Meaux
Voyager Estate Chardonnay 2012 (Margaret River) $45; 13% Here’s a chardonnay that really leaves an impression. It starts with a lovely bouquet of zesty citrus, flint and stonefruit. There’s a touch of spice, too. Then there’s the creamy texture and an incredible intensity to the lemon, peach and vanilla flavours. For all its intensity, this is neatly balanced and focused. ● Enjoy with \ Snails with garlic and parsley butter
BARGAIN BUY Vasse Felix Filius Chardonnay 2014 (Margaret River) $27; 12.5% When this pops up on wine lists as a cheaper option, I go for it. This is unoaked and its aromas are pure, with blossom, lemon, white nectarine and flint. It’s got the punch you expect from Margaret River chardonnay, with milky, chalky texture and citrus zest flavours. ● Enjoy with \ Fish cakes

magine a “bowl of onions”, crescent-shaped slices of the Spanish variety, roast turnip broth, mustard seeds … I know, I couldn’t have either. Equally, a dessert of “pear custard”, with golden syrup jelly and shards of black Manjimup truffle cut so thick that they taste somehow like chocolate, cleverly enhanced by a smattering of cacao nibs. We’ve seen Ides grow from two years of pop-ups serving interesting food to interested industry types, to the softly lit and equally softly furnished space that it is now; music to the ears of anyone for whom noise is a factor. Speaking of music, settling in for a degustation is a bit like listening to an album, cover to cover, headphones on, going exactly where the artist wants to take you. Our artist in question is Peter Gunn, previously of Attica, and it’s clear he compiles his weekly fixed-price six-course menu with this “album” in mind. It’s not a one-man show, mind you; shattering the fourth wall of chef-diner, plates are presented and cleared by those who prepare them. Flavours are defined – a compilation of tastes, dish by dish: sweet, salty, sour, bitter, savoury. This is cooking that resonates. ● email@example.com

BRUNCH \ I was charmed by THE GLASS DEN, a sprawling cafe in the old gatehouse at Pentridge. MARKET LANE (Prahran Market) is great for coffee and croissant. HANNAH in Balaclava has great coffee, good tunes and weekend specials. Ripponlea’s MISS RUBEN has ace baked eggs.
minestrone with buttered leeks, which I make in my Thermomix in 20 minutes. Otherwise, even busy restaurants are quiet early in the evening – a good option for eating with the kids. I love SUPERMAXI for pizza, HOUSE OF HOI AN for Vietnamese and MANKOUSHE for Middle Eastern.
A DATE \ TRATTORIA EMILIA is perfect for cosy winter dates. PHILIPPE ticks all the date-night boxes; French food in a CBD basement is the definition of romance. Some dates work better in boisterous venues such as hip Japanese MR MIYAGI or SUPERNORMAL, where seats at the bar with a view of the kitchen offer heaps of talking points.
TO SEE & BE SEEN \ N \ I’m not big on being seen but I love a champagne or three at BAR DI STASIO and admiring the absolute artistry of the waiters.
QUIET DINNER \ HOME is always good! My favourite winter meal is a
DRINKING \ The Pooey Nappy (aka a dirty babycino), which I’m determined to make a thing. Think “short mac” but topped up with micro-foam. Try it out on your favourite bearded barista and let me know what you think. ● LISTENING TO \ The Splendid Table with Lynne Rossetto Kasper (American Public Media), the podcast equivalent of a foodie feast. It’s been going for ages, so there’s plenty of back catalogue to get through and every episode guarantees at least one “Eureka!” moment. ●
A FANCY DINNER \ VUE DE MONDE is great: there’s an authentic connection between their gardens at BURNHAM BEECHES and the food served 55 floors up in the Rialto. PRESS CLUB is exuberant, and also ESP where Scott Pickett uses classic technique to create expressive modern dishes. ●
THE DRINK RINK \ The house-blend coffee is smooth and balanced. Matcha lattes are a favourite, along with teas and cold-pressed juices.
CAULIFLOWER PANNA COTTA
THE CROWD \ The locals love having a piece of the city around the corner, and come by for brunch or to grab coffee and a doughnut to take away.

films on offer this year. While local films are often met with a lukewarm reception at the multiplex, Michelle says MIFF audiences tend to be more welcoming. “The Australian films are often the first films to sell out. Joe Cinque’s Consolation, based on the Helen Garner book, sold out in two hours.” There’s an inevitable focus on the future of film, but this year’s program is also looking to the past. A Jerry Lewis retrospective will screen all 12 films directed by the now 90-year-old comedian, while the Gaining Ground stream revisits women directors working in New York during the 1970s and ’80s. This latter season is particularly close to Michelle’s heart. “I’ve been wanting to do something around women directors for ages, but it’s such a vast playground. So I thought about what era I really love and I wanted to draw attention to unheralded directors. What’s really interesting is that these directors didn’t go on to be household names. They had trouble making films after this, which I think is really sad.” ● firstname.lastname@example.org

GIVE IT A GO JEMIM AH CLEGG SINGS HER HEART OUT
The reality We start at the very beginning (which is a very good place to start), with scales. Now I won’t pretend I’m super-new to this, as I’ve done some musical theatre, so I settle into my “la, la, las” just fine. Well, sort of. I start out singing with the sopranos and then find that my vocal chords aren’t quite what they used to be, so I move down to the altos. Our conductor Kym Dillon is energetic and engaging. He humorously explains what each section should be singing – at times jumping around behind the keyboard, playing The Addams Family theme – while giving us the notes we need to keep on track. We sing three songs, including The Longest Time and I Can See Clearly Now Now. Each has three- and four-part harmonies, but they’re not hard to pick up.
The pay-off Singing with people who come from all walks of life, who are enthusiastic and aren’t judging you if you sing the wrong note or get the words muddled. The pain factor I forgot what a good workout singing can be for your diaphragm. Who should do it? Everyone. It’s about getting together with others and letting yourself go for a bit.

Keeping the balance
here are many reasons people choose to think about their health at this time of year – particularly with events such as Dry July under way. Giving up alcohol can have many health benefits, including for the unsung heroes of the body – the kidneys.
What they say … A N A S TA S I A C H R Y S O S T O M O U NEPHROLOGIST (KIDNEY SPECIALIST) \ EPWORT PWOR H RICHMOND PWORT What our kidneys do
The kidneys play a major role in maintaining general health and well-being by helping to look after our blood, blood pressure and bone health. They’ve got a big job to do, because our kidneys clean about 200 litres of blood every day. Their main job is to make urine from the excess fluid and waste products in the blood but kidneys are also responsible for controlling fluid balance and play a critical role in maintaining blood pressure. In fact, high blood pressure can be one of the first indicators of kidney problems and it also can cause kidney damage or chronic kidney disease, which can lead to the need for dialysis. Another important role of the kidneys is preventing anaemia because the kidneys help send signals to our bone marrow to make red blood cells. Kidneys also play a role in keeping our bones healthy, mainly by activating vitamin D to help with bone density.

particularly people with diabetes, follow a low-salt, low-fat diet and maintain a healthy body weight. Having your cholesterol levels and related checks is important for both heart and kidney health. Being well-hydrated is important so, if you are thirsty, drink water (preferably). When having an alcoholic drink it’s good to remember that any more than two standard drinks a day increases your chance of having high blood pressure. Drinking too much alcohol can also damage the liver and this in turn adds to the kidneys’ job. Excess alcohol can also cause inflammation of the kidney filters. In extreme cases, where there is liver damage from drinking too much alcohol, the kidneys can shut down completely. Signs that something is wrong

cent of kidney function is lost. One of the important indicators of kidney damage is when albumin (protein) is leaking into the urine. This can be picked up in a test by your doctor. Damage to the kidneys puts vital organs at risk and also raises the risk of heart attack or a stroke. ●
If you do need treatment for kidney disease this can include having dialysis (also known as haemodialysis). Dialysis acts like an external kidney and patients are put on a restricted food and fluid diet to assist in the treatment. Most patients will usually see an improvement in their condition within a couple of weeks with the combination of treatment and this special diet. Epworth Richmond will soon launch a new program that allows patients to have dialysis treatment overnight, enabling them to keep working while they feel well enough to do so. ● MELISSA HEAGNEY email@example.com » epworth.org.au/Our-Services/Nephrology/Pages/ homepage.aspx

SCHOOL’S OUT WITH JENNY DE NARDIS
Jenny De Nardis wears many different hats at St Catherine’s School in Toorak. Not only does she, as physical education head, encourage students to be active, she also challenges them in the classroom to use technology in creative ways. special promotion
Who inspired you to become a teacher? Several of my primary school teachers inspired me to teach. My year 3 teacher in Townsville had a unique way of helping us learn fractions by chopping up fruit. Another teacher in Brisbane introduced me to gymnastics and it became a big part of my life. I competed in rhythmic gymnastics at a state and national level until the age of 25 and I became a very passionate rhythmic gymnastics coach, which led me to realising my love of teaching children and my decision to become a primary school teacher.
What was your very first day of teaching like? My first job was actually as a specialist music teacher in the western suburbs of Melbourne with a government school. At that time, teachers were plentiful so getting a job in Melbourne was difficult. So I was feeling considerably fortunate yet apprehensive, considering I was physical education-trained with very little music background; it was quite nerve-wracking. The music room was a small closed-in room at the back of the library, which was also not ideal because of the noise we made in the library!
“it is so rewarding to iNtroduce new tEchnologies … & see how quickly they engage”
As well as my role in physical education I also teach year 5. I am always looking for new ideas to enhance student learning. A chance meeting and discussion with a colleague introduced me to several ideas and, in conjunction with my fellow year 5 teaching colleague, Genius Hour was launched at St Catherine’s. Inspired by search engine giant Google, our Genius Hour allows students to explore their own passions and encourages creativity in the classroom. Coding, augmented reality and virtual reality apps are forms of technology I have introduced. We also make movies using photos of the various happenings of the school day. These are always a highlight during school assembly. It is so rewarding to introduce new technologies to my students and see how quickly they engage, interact and work their way through them. Imagination, creative thinking and problem solving are some of the skills our children need to take on this ever-evolving journey of education.
What do you enjoy most about your job? I enjoy the relationships that are built with my students, families and school staff. Helping students achieve and inspiring them to learn and to try new skills and sports is a major highlight for me as well as witnessing the students stretch themselves and go 22 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ JULY 27, 2016

Attending St Catherine’s has ensured she highly values giving back to the community. So much so that Emma is planning a trip to Africa in 2017 to provide medical assistance in remote communities. ●

Film director and producer
Fran Derham had no idea what she wanted to do after school. Initially it was acting, but her mum wisely pointed out that actors are more often unemployed than not. Her favourite subjects at school were art, drama and psychology, so she studied a bachelor of arts, majoring in psychology and art history at the University of Melbourne, and a bachelor of communications, majoring in creative advertising, at RMIT. It wasn’t until making surf documentary First Love that Fran found her true passion was filmmaking. Since then she has become a director and producer in her own right and started production company Cos We Can with her best friend. Her dream is to one day win an Oscar. ●

After practising as a lawyer at Herbert Smith Freehills for four years, Betty moved into investment banking, working as an associate at Lazard, one of the world’s pre-eminent financial advisory and asset-management firms. Betty says the first-class education she received at St Catherine’s provided her with an excellent foundation for her career in law and finance. ●

sluggish off the mark and up long hills, but that’s nothing you can’t deal with. There is audible rear parking assist, but I wondered about paying for a centre dash screen when a reversing camera and navigation are optional (and the touch screen can be frustratingly difficult to use). The real world fuel economy is nothing brilliant going by our experience, otherwise there’s nothing to upset anyone here. Except for the spare wheel. It’s not just skinny and speed-limited to 80 km/h; you have to inflate it with the supplied compressor before you can use it. This is not something you would ever want to have to do, so keep your roadside assist paid up. You can access Pandora by pairing your phone with the car – a nice touch. ●

Daewoo in Korea and, while this helps keep prices down, the Cruze doesn’t have the same quality feel of, say, a Mazda 3 from Japan or even a Hyundai or Kia, also from Korea. If you can live with this and an engine that works hard for everything it achieves then the price is definitely right. The five-speed manual starts at $19,990, the auto is just $1000 more. The cheapest Mazda 3 auto is $26,000. It’s a bit slow off the mark but winds up OK and cruises comfortably at the legal limit with enough in reserve for overtaking. You feel the bumps and jumps in the road but the ride is acceptable. The handling can get a bit loose and vague when pushed but if you want to drive fast you won’t buy one of these. It’s a car for people who aren’t into cars, who just want to go from A to B. ●
Far from exciting but it does everything you want and it’s very good value. ●
rom its honey-timbered floors to the Turkish bathroom, there are the sturdy footings of a story in Hannie Rayson’s Fitzroy home. “The thing about this house is that it has always been owned by women who have been here for long periods of time,” the acclaimed playwright, screenwriter and author, best known for the classic Hotel Sorrento, reveals. Built at the turn of last century – a time when it would have been unusual for women to own property in their own right – the cottage “embraced” Hannie when she first stepped across the threshold some 20 years ago. Down to sprigs of fresh mint tucked in a glass on the kitchen window, the vibe is inviting and decor naturally artful. “Sometimes I think because I don’t take enough care that maybe it looks a bit studenty, especially when I was learning my lines for Hello, Beautiful! [the stage play based on her 2015 memoir of the same name] and had pieces of paper stuck around the walls,” Hannie says. “I just want people to come here and feel relaxed, happy and have a good time.” ● SARAH HARRIS firstname.lastname@example.org

hey say one man’s trash is another man’s treasure and with the increasing popularity of “upcycling” it couldn’t be more true. Wood-care brand Feast Watson is once again hosting the Re-Love Project, a campaign showcasing the talents of seven Australian designers as they upcycle for a cause, transforming a worn piece of furniture into a stunning statement piece. From August 25 until September 4, design lovers will have the chance to bid on the items via eBay, with all proceeds donated to Salvos stores. We asked Feast Watson designer Aimee Tarulli to give us her top five tips on upcycling projects.
THE RIGHT PIECE
When choosing a pre-loved piece of furniture, look for something with a really solid foundation. Make sure it’s in a reasonable condition.
Bassinet is finished in Feast Watson Liming White and Feast Watson Clear Varnish (Matt Finish) as part of the Feast Watson Re-Love Project Basket from Norsu Interiors Heart Light, $99, from Hello Little Birdie Rosette from Skinny Wolf
P R E PA R A T I O N
Invest enough time in the prep work. The right amount of elbow grease early on will ensure the best possible end result.

Do some research online on the best method to apply your product – for example liming white looks best when it’s rubbed off afterwards rather than applied with a paintbrush and left to dry.

GAME, SET, MATCH 15 BARR BARRY STREET, KEW, 3101
aptains of industry and professionals – even the odd restaurateur and sportsman – have long called Kew’s Barry Street precinct home. They are drawn to its leafy streets and the high concentration of large late-Victorian and Federation houses. This part of Kew, up the hill and near the river, is quietly dignified and set apart from the rest of the suburb. It is rarely flashy. These aren’t just big houses on big blocks. They often take advantage of the area’s topography. Rohese, at 15 Barry Street, is a case in point. It occupies an elevated position on a corner of Holroyd Street. Originally it was much bigger, with a north-south tennis court, but it still occupies about 1330 square metres of prime Kew real estate. The tennis court, which was sold for a new home site some years ago, represents an important part of Rohese’s history. Dame Nellie Melba’s favourite sister, Isabella, was one of the home’s most famous owners. Isabella’s son Gerald Patterson learned to play on the tennis court. He went on to become a tennis great, winning Wimbledon in 1919 and 1922, as well as representing Australia in Davis Cup. History apart, Rohese shows how Victorian houses can be reworked and renovated for today’s 21st-century family. Its period features – marble mantelpieces and surrounds, cornices and four-panelled internal doors – remain, but the end result is contemporary luxury. A terrific integration of indoor living and outdoor entertaining creates terraces or decks that can be used depending on the weather or the time of day. The entry from the northern side of the property is up the original bluestone steps and into the hall. Inside, hardwood floors have replaced the original Baltic pine. Interiors are mainly white and grey, with touches of charcoal in feature walls. Contemporary grey carpet is used judiciously on the staircase and in the bedrooms but polished floors gleam in the high-traffic areas. The staircase is a design statement in timber and wrought iron. The formal lounge, which connects to the dining room,
EDITORIAL SUBMISSIONS PROPERTY EDITOR \ MARIA HARRIS firstname.lastname@example.org M \ 0409 009 766
is off the entry hall. A deep charcoal-coloured feature wall contrasts with the white of the dining room. A curved bay opens with french doors to a deck to add an informal air to the dining room. Still at the front of the house, the informal living room – now with a gas open fireplace – extends to the kitchen and meals area. The kitchen opens through wide folding doors to an east-facing deck that offers a private sun trap from morning until early afternoon. The sizeable stone island bench is matched by a bench along one wall with marble-tiled splashback. The kitchen resembles a Miele display suite. It has an oven, steam oven, convection oven/ microwave and plate warmer, with fridge and freezer at each end of this “oven wall”. The cooktop has a barbecue hot plate, wok burner, two induction hotplates and a massive quasi-commercial rangehood. The carpeted staircase arrives at a split landing that is lit by a large overhead light covered in black sheer fabric. All five bedrooms are upstairs. At the front is the main bedroom, with a luxurious en suite, fitted walk-in wardrobe and views to the hills in the distance. Two other spacious bedrooms each have a feature wall with edgy designer cityscapes. The images are only stickers so can be easily removed. There are two more smaller bedrooms. All are served by a second marble bathroom on this floor. As well as a magnificent landscaped garden with towering trees and a swimming pool and cabana, the house has a separate rumpus room or home gym with its own en suite. The clever use of space outside also includes a separate studio apartment with a vast open-plan living room and bedroom, Miele kitchen and en suite. All this with Kew Junction five minutes down the road, the Yarra River parklands an easy walk away and some of Melbourne’s best schools close by. Living in Kew doesn’t get much better than this. Except perhaps with a tennis court. ● MARIA HARRIS email@example.com

TOORAK \ 50 HOPETOUN ROAD This grand neo-Georgian house was built in 1934, as Toorak’s 19th-century mansions were being subdivided or demolished to make way for a new wave of redevelopment. Sound familiar? The house is still remarkably intact. The central entrance, shielded by a semi-circular balcony and topped by a Palladian window arrangement, leads into a panelled hall with a graceful return staircase. Three classically proportioned rooms – drawing, sitting and dining – open, through sliding doors, to make a spectacular entertaining space. The original kitchen and butler’s pantry have been modified during the years and the only major change has been the addition of a rumpus room that faces a north garden and a heated pool. A north-south tennis court is across the rear of the large site. The second storey is grouped around a spacious upper landing. The unusual main bedroom, with its own hall, occupies the northern half of the upper floor. A second bathroom serves three more bedrooms. All upper rooms command wide city views. The original staff quarters (with two bedrooms) have survived. This space could easily be adapted to cater for our growing acceptance of variations of the one house/one family idea. ● NEIL CLEREHAN

In a cul-de-sac behind Genazzano College, this modern two-storey Glenville house was built in 2008 and features a bold, contemporary design. It has Scandinavian-style floorboards along the length of its hall. There’s a double garage and carpeted study near the entry, while the remainder of the ground floor is comprised of living spaces centred on the main courtyard and pool. The front living and dining rooms are partially zoned and carpeted. There’s an open fireplace in the living room. Further back, the layout is more casual, with the hall’s timber floors extending to the kitchen, meals and a second living space. The kitchen has stainless-steel appliances, Caesarstone benches and a service window to a second courtyard with barbecue. The five bedrooms are upstairs, along with a retreat and central bathroom. Each bedroom has a built-in wardrobe and ceiling fan. The main has a spacious en suite, walk-in wardrobe and sweeping views taking in the CBD and surrounding neighbourhood. ● JULIAN HEALEY

TOORAK \ 1 ROSS STREET The address near Toorak village is exclusive and what lies behind the high fence in the crook of one-way Ross Street’s elbow is one of a kind. Renowned antiques dealer Graham Geddes has lived in what he describes as his concrete bunker since the 1990s, soon after it was built. Now he’s cleared out his vast private collection to downsize. “You had to walk sideways to get in,” he says. Geddes’ favourite space is the European-inspired open-plan living/dining area, where “we eat, play guitar, play chess, discuss”. Its elegant terrazzo flooring, with sub-floor heating, continues past sliding doors into the kitchen. Preceding the living zone is a lap pool with jet stream in the Paul Bangay courtyard. At the rear are french doors to a Julian Ronchi-designed travertine terrace. A curving timber staircase connects three levels plus roof access. The glazed apex acts as a light well. On the first level, a parquetry-floored open study separates the main bedroom, overlooking the pool, from two bedrooms with art deco-inspired en suites. The basement has a four-car garage, home theatre room, large laundry and bathroom. High-level security, a dumb waiter, bespoke fixtures, open fireplace and wax-finished walls and ceilings lift liveability and ambience. “It’s not over-pretentious but has lots of style and class,” Geddes says. ● JACQUI HAMMERTON

This renovated and extended bungalow was built in 1910, about the time architecture in Melbourne’s suburbs began departing from Edwardian designs. Its vintage aside, the house has well and truly entered the modern era. It has downlighting throughout, two modern bathrooms and a contemporary kitchen, ducted heating and open-plan living spaces. The immaculate facade shows off weatherboards, leadlight and a verandah with traditional Californian bungalow pillars. The pillars are replicated on the adjoining carport. The double-door entry is into a wide central hall. At the front, three bedrooms have built-in wardrobes. The main has the added features of an open fireplace and Caesarstone en suite. A combined laundry and bathroom serves the rest of the house. Beyond this is an open-plan zone, taking in the dining and living areas and a U-shaped Caesarstone kitchen. This space is bathed in light from windows on three sides, and reverse-cycle air-conditioning keeps it cool. ● JULIAN HEALEY

HAWTHORN EAST \ 63 LEURA GROVE Fasham Johnson houses are a fascinating paradox. Their extreme privacy can make them appear bland; this house, built in 1991, preserves its mystery with only one slender window to the street. Step in, and the flow, the light and the rooms’ orientation towards courtyards and the north-facing garden make this a place to love, or at least admire, at first sight. The brick, single-storey house has a tapering floor plan with two communal zones and three bedrooms with a good degree of separation. At the front, cosy adjoining living and dining rooms share a brick open fireplace, a cathedral ceiling and a beautiful view into the fernery that is a highlight of this unusual house. Down the corridor, the casual area opens with the bright, carpeted family room and its garden view. Next to it are the study nook and the tiled meals area, with french doors to the covered, crazy-paved patio. The updated kitchen has Bosch and Miele appliances and speckled stone benchtops; you can walk through to the laundry. The main bedroom is towards the front, with windows to a leafy courtyard. The large semi-en suite has a shower and powder room. In the rear wing, two more double bedrooms share the white main bathroom.

In a heritage-listed pocket of Malvern, this single-storey weatherboard house initally reveals little of what lies behind its Federation facade. The leadlight-bedecked front door opens to a traditional floor plan, with bedrooms flanking a central hallway. On the right, the main bedroom has a sophisticated look, with sheer
curtains, soft carpet and its original fireplace. The walk-in wardrobe has slick black joinery and the en suite has large grey tiles. On the threshold of the rear extension are the family bathroom and laundry. Beautifully renovated, they have large-format limestone tiles and hardwood window frames. There’s a double vanity. The rear extension is a contemporary

flat-roofed space that contains the family, living, meals and kitchen area. Its main feature is a freestanding, near-full-height joinery unit, which serves many purposes: it visually separates the kitchen from the dining room, and it also contains a food preparation area, storage unit and fireplace. At the back of the extension, a dramatically long island bench is functional and efficient.
It extends through to the exterior for barbecue entertaining. The southern boundary wall is made up of floor-to-ceiling windows, allowing light to penetrate the south-facing interior while simultaneously providing a wide view of the garden. Even more light is introduced to this area through a large skylight. ● FRANCESCA CARTER
