Weerama Festival 2013 MARCH 23 - 24

A Wyndham Weekly Special Promotion

Mayor’s Message 2013 Weerama Festival On behalf of Wyndham City, I would like to welcome you all to the 2013 Weerama Festival. Now running for more than 30 years, the festival has a proud tradition and is embraced by the community. This year’s Weerama Festival features an exciting line-up of activities for people of all ages. From the famous Street Parade and live music to the Multicultural Fiesta and Environment Expo – there’s something for everyone. Among the other highlights will be an outdoor pool party, Children’s Funfest at Chirnside Park and of course, the fireworks spectacular. Weerama is part of a great season of events in Wyndham, including the Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt and Family Picnic at Werribee Park, Wyndham Relay for Life and the Wyndham Pet Expo. I would like to congratulate the organising committee for their hard work in organising this year’s Festival.

The streets are alive… with the sounds of Wyndham Now in its 35th year, the Weerama Festival is all about staging a huge celebration of just what makes “Wyndham Alive” – this year’s exciting theme. The festival gives the City of Wyndham the chance to celebrate its town and people in a vibrant display of colour, activities and flat-out fun.

The iconic Riverwalk street parade once again comes down Watton Street at 11am on Sunday. It showcases Wyndham’s community groups, businesses, multicultural groups and emergency vehicles – and Fireman Sam makes a special appearance.

I encourage all residents to head down to this year’s Weerama and enjoy this wonderful community event.

This year, there are events to suit everyone. Wonderland Children’s Funfest offers free activities and rides, the Werribee outdoor pool has free entry to a pool party and classic cars are on show at Wyndham Park in the hope of raising money for the Royal Children’s Hospital.

Sunday remains abuzz with Watton Street lined with activities and events. This year, the Multicultural Fiesta joins the festival, bringing delicious food, dance and crafts to festival visitors. Three stages deliver something for everyone, from multicultural acts and Town Crier Championships to the W Factor youth talent contest and a show-stopping performance by Daryl Braithwaite.

Kind Regards, Cr Heather Marcus Wyndham Mayor

Saturday’s packed line-up culminates in shows in the main street, with performances by the Australian Rhianna & Gaga Tribute Show and the razzle-dazzle of fireworks in Wyndham Park.

See for yourselves just how alive Wyndham is – and don’t forget to invite friends and family from out of town so they can see why Wyndham residents are so proud of their community.

Ferry good idea: study positive

INSIDE wyndhamweekly.com.au pointcookweekly.com.au

16

BY NICK TOSCANO RESIDENTS and lobby groups have welcomed the prospect of a commuter ferry to the CBD, after a 10-month feasibility study came back with positive results. According to the $300,000 study, which Planning Minister Matthew Guy launched last May, a trip between Werribee South and the Docklands on a large catamaran could take 50 minutes. But the opposition yesterday slammed the idea as ‘‘half-baked’’ and accused the government of having no real plan to implement it. The preliminary Ernst & Young report found privately run services could work on a route between Portarlington and Docklands, with stops at Werribee South, Altona and Williamstown. It stated that rapid growth in Wyndham and the need to counter West Gate Freeway congestion had caused a ‘‘pressing need’’ to explore all transport options. A viable service could take between 50 and 65 minutes from Werribee South and about 80 minutes from Portarlington. “If Melbourne is to grow sustainably we need to examine all aspects of commuter movement to keep our city liveable,” Mr Guy (pictured) said. The ferry could potentially have access to wi-fi and a canteen. A final report and cost analysis won’t be handed down until July. A 2008 study that examined a similar ferry route listed choppy conditions, low patronage, cost blowouts and the need for heavy government subsidy as the biggest obstacles. Altona Labor MP Jill Hennessy said the money being funnelled into ferry planning would be better spent on a second river crossing, arterial roadworks and expanded bus services to better connect with trains. Opposition treasury spokesman Tim Pallas said a bay ferry should not be taxpayer-funded as it would carry a negligible number of commuters compared to the 220,000 cars predicted to use the West Gate by 2020. He suspected the government would relegate the project to the private sector and try to take credit. Mr Guy said a discussion paper gauging potential demand for a ferry service found between a third and a quarter of the resident workforce in Point Cook, Altona and Williamstown commuted to the

CBD, ‘‘confirming a large potential catchment for a future service’’. Point Cook resident Alice Osborne said a bay ferry could be a boost for western suburbs commuters, providing an alternative to crowded trains and choked roads. Although she is waiting on the finer details, including the ticketing system to be used, Ms Osborne believed a ferry service would be heavily patronised by residents. ‘‘I’d rather sit on a ferry for 50 minutes than be stuck on Point Cook Road.’’ Western suburbs lobby group LeadWest said a third transport option was a welcome addition for Wyndham’s growth corridor. ‘‘I think it’s an interesting proposal, and if the numbers stack up I wish them well,’’ chief executive Anton Mayer said.

A ferry link from Docklands to Werribee South will bolster tourism in Wyndham, the government says. Along with relieving road congestion, Planning Minister Matthew Guy said a ferry service would draw people to Point Cook’s coastal areas and take in the ‘‘delights’’ of the Werribee Open Range Zoo, Werribee Park Mansion and the RAAF museum. Mayor Heather Marcus said Wyndham had a number of ‘‘untapped’’ attractions. ‘‘Everybody knows we have a fantastic tourism precinct,’’ Cr Marcus said. ‘‘Whatever we can do to open up this city without further congesting our roads would be embraced by the council.’’ — Nick Toscano

Kinders fall behind national benchmark BY NICK TOSCANO CHILDREN enrolled at Wyndham’s council-run kindergartens are falling behind a new national benchmark of 15 hours of preschool each week. Three months out from a June deadline, when Victorian kinders must provide 15-hour programs for all four-year-olds, figures show fewer than a third of children at Wyndham Council’s kinders are attending more than 10.75 hours a week. Council chief executive Kerry Thompson said 676 out of 2157 preschoolers were enrolled in 15-hour programs. She said the financial pressure of coping with the region’s rapidly growing population was the main reason for the low rate. ‘‘Despite receiving some funding from

developers and the state government for community infrastructure, council contributes the majority of the cost, often several million dollars, towards the construction of every new kindergarten within the municipality.’’ She expected the council would be able to offer 15 hours of kindergarten at all council-run kinder groups by next year. This comes after new Australian Bureau of Statistics data revealed Victoria had the lowest proportion of children enrolled for 15 hours or more, at 33.5 per cent, of every other state and territory. In NSW, 60 per cent of preschoolers were enrolled for 15 hours or more, 91 per cent in Tasmania and 84 per cent in South Australia. The Municipal Association of Victoria last

year said Wyndham would be among the most disadvantaged under the new federal benchmark because of a lack of state funding to build more rooms and employ more staff. Point Cook mum Kylie Kennett, whose son attended Featherbrook kindergarten 12 hours a week last year, questioned the need to increase hours for four-year-olds. ‘‘For a child who’s four it tends to get a bit late if they finished at 5pm, and it makes it harder for parents in the morning, especially if they have another child to drop off at school,’’ she said. ‘‘I’m more focused on the quality of time they spend there rather than the length of time.’’ The federal government has committed $210 million to help Victorian kindergartens provide extra hours. Despite the low provision of

15-hour programs, Early Childhood Development Minister Wendy Lovell said Productivity Commission figures showed Victoria had the highest kinder enrolment rate in Australia. She said the government had been working to ensure 90 per cent of kinders could deliver 15 hours by next year. Kindergarten Parents Victoria said strong three-year-old kinder programs and high attendance rates meant staff and infrastructure was under more strain than other states.

Children ‘distressed’ by childcare turnover

Childcare challenge: Claire Sutton says low wages are contributing to high staff turnover.

Picture: Darren Howe

ing Centre director Claire Sutton has worked in childcare for 15 years. She said while wages had improved slightly since she started in the industry, they did not reflect the type of work she did. ‘‘A lot of people think we are just babysitters but we are more than that, we are educators. We spend a lot of time educating children and work long hours but we are not recognised. ‘‘Great staff are leaving the industry because the wages are better elsewhere and other jobs have less stressful conditions.’’ Ms Sutton said the federal government and wider community needed to recognise the work done by childcare workers and provide the industry with professional wages. The government has said it is up to independent tribunals to determine pay rates. — Laura Little

WYNDHAM childcare workers have warned that poor wages and working conditions are impacting on children. Childcare employees around the country have mounted a campaign for better wages to put an end to the sector’s high staff turnover. Early childhood education union United Voice says a third of childcare workers leave their jobs every year because of low wages. State secretary Jess Walsh said children found it distressing when carers were changed. ‘‘Ninety per cent of a child’s brain development occurs under the age of five. Research shows that early childhood is the most crucial time in the education of our kids, and that they need to forge bonds with their educators in order to get the best start in life.’’ Point Cook Goodstart Early Learn-

that construction, twice. It’s a tribute to everyone at the school. I’m very lucky to be the one who gets to declare this new multipurpose room open.’’ Pupils had knitted a dark-blue woollen curtain covering the plaque the PM unveiled. Principal Helen Watson said the ‘‘senseless’’ arson had left the school community devastated. Without more government funding, she said, another $3 million would have been very difficult for any school to raise. Western Metropolitan Liberal MP Andrew Elsbury criticised Ms Gillard for her five-day campaign in western Sydney this month, saying that clawing back popularity points had become her priority. ‘‘If she’s going to go out to the western part of Sydney and splash some cash, what about what she calls her own backyard?’’

INVESTIGATIONS continue into the stabbing death of a Werribee man in Fitzroy. The man, 21, died after being stabbed multiple times on Sunday morning. His name has not been released. He was discovered in Johnston Street by a council worker about 5am. He collapsed soon after and died before an ambulance arrived. Police arrested and charged a Sydenham man, 21, on Monday after stopping a vehicle in which he was travelling in Joy Street, Brooklyn, about 12.50am. The man was charged with one count of affray and bailed to appear at Melbourne Magistrates Court next week. Two Brooklyn men, 21 and 30, were also arrested but released without charge. Police said the vehicle was undergoing forensic testing. Detectives arrested another man, a 29-yearold from Brunswick West, on Sunday afternoon. He was interviewed and released without charge. Police said four women went to Melbourne North police station yesterday morning and were helping police. On Sunday, Detective Sergeant Allan Birch said the investigation had been hampered due to the early mystery around the man’s identity. “We don’t know who was involved and we don’t know exactly how the injuries were inflicted. Because of that our investigation is extremely wide.” Detective Birch said police hoped anyone who may have been in the area about 5am on Sunday would come forward. ‘‘Having regard to its almost inner city location, I would think there would have been people moving about, about 5am [Sunday] morning, and that they would come forward and help us solve what actually happened.” — Laura Little Information to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000

DURING a day of new leadership whispers, a week of vicious electioneering and a month of sliding opinion polls, Prime Minister Julia Gillard beamed with pride. On Friday, Manorvale Primary School’s new multipurpose hall, bankrolled by federal government stimulus money, was officially opened. It’s second time lucky for the Werribee school, after its first $3 million hall was razed by an arsonist three years ago. Ms Gillard sat with a bouquet of pink roses in her lap, gazing over the hall jammed with pupils, parents and teachers. Here, in her political heartland where she won the Lalor electorate with a comfortable 64 per cent of the 2010 vote, the crowd’s adoration was in stark contrast to a grim outlook for Labor

nationally. According to the latest Nielsen poll, the two-party preferred split has the government at 44 per cent and the opposition 56 per cent – a 6 per cent swing to the Coalition from the 50-50 result in 2010 and a landslide victory if carried through to election day on September 14. Ms Gillard said she wouldn’t flinch in the face of continuing speculation. ‘‘I’ll just keep getting on with it and dealing with the issues that actually matter and all of this kind of side commentary can do whatever it does. ‘‘When I was education minister during the grim days of the global financial crisis, we needed to support education in our nation. We funded new buildings at 9500 schools across the country; 57 were in the Lalor electorate. ‘‘Here at Manorvale, you had to do a really brave thing and face all the work, all

Householders take shine to solar energy BY NICK TOSCANO MORE Wyndham residents are choosing to harness the power of the sun, as new figures show the region had the state’s highest number of rooftop solar panels installed last year. A total of 7767 solar panels were installed in Wyndham households in the 12 months to January, according to the federal government’s Clean Energy Regulator. Postcode 3030 – spanning Werribee, Werribee South, Point Cook and Derrimut – had 3488 solar panels installed. It was followed by postcode 3029 – Hoppers Crossing, Tarneit and Truganina – with 3098 installations. Sustainable Energy Association chief adviser Ray Wills said residents in outer suburbs might have a reputation for preferring SUVs and expansive houses, but they were also among the highest purchasers of solar panels. ‘‘People who have installed solar panels for any reason do consider their energy use more closely. The latest crop is doing so because it makes economic sense to generate electricity from a solar panel,’’ he said.

Nathan Jenkinson, of Saltwater Coast developer FKP, said it was a positive sign that Wyndham had the highest solar panel uptake. He said sustainable energy was becoming a bigger focus for architects and homebuilders. ‘‘We actively encourage residents to adopt sustainable features like solar to complement mandatory installations of solar hot water systems and rainwater tanks,’’ he said. Point Cook resident Helen D’Angelo had eight solar panels installed in 2012 in the hope of trimming her family’s power bills. ‘‘We’ve been seeing that power’s going up and, with six people under our roof we were worried we would really chew up some energy,’’ she said. Western Region Environment Centre director Harry van Moorst said the figures showed Wyndham residents were concerned about climate change. He criticised the federal government for phasing out its solar credits scheme subsidy in January. The state government’s failure to act on cutting coal-fired power plant dependency was also ‘‘undermining the effort a lot of people and families are making to install solar panels and do something about climate change’’.

Lucky escape as car ploughs into house BY LAURA LITTLE POLICE are pleading for drivers to pay more attention on the road after a car crashed into the front of a Hoppers Crossing house. The owners of the house on Hogans Road had left their living room to check on dinner only minutes before the car crashed through the window about 4.20pm last Thursday. Police said the decision had prevented them from being seriously injured or killed. Werribee’s Sergeant Chris Marsh said the car crashed into the house after its driver lost control. He said the Hoppers Crossing man, 36, had been travelling east on the inside lane on Hogans Road when his car drifted to the left and hit a gutter five times, causing him to lose control of the vehicle. The car then veered right, between two other vehicles, clipped a tree and went over the centre median strip into two lanes of oncoming traffic. Sergeant Marsh said the car then hit a tree,

moving it seven metres, before ploughing through the front window of the house. The driver was taken to the Royal Melbourne Hospital with a suspected broken ankle. His passenger, a Hoppers Crossing man, 41, was taken to The Alfred hospital with head injuries. Sergeant Marsh said police were yet to interview the driver but believed speed and either drugs or alcohol had contributed to the crash. ‘‘It is absolutely amazing to us that he didn’t collide with westbound traffic on Hogans Road. ‘‘Witnesses said he was travelling at excessive speed. ‘‘It is a warning to other drivers that this is unnecessary. We are very fortunate that no one was injured or killed.’’ He urged drivers to take more care on the road. ‘‘We are asking people to be aware of other drivers around them.’’

A WERRIBEE woman has been convicted for helping her boyfriend escape prison last December. Corina Harris, 44, last Wednesday pleaded guilty to a charge of aiding and abetting Christopher John Clarke, 29, whose escape from Langi Kal Kal prison sparked a two-day police manhunt west of Melbourne. Uniformed officers with tracking dogs were sent scouring the area surrounding Ballarat. Werribee Magistrates Court heard that Harris had made a prior booking of a hotel room along the Western Highway before she picked up her fugitive boyfriend in her car between midnight and 2am on December 27. Police said the pair stayed at the hotel and went to Harris’ house in Werribee for supplies the following day before driving to Colac where police intercepted them. Colac police found portable coolers packed with food and drinks in the car. Clarke, who was jailed for burglary and theft, was previously due for parole in June

Harris’ defence counsel, Tony Hannebery, argued it was a snap decision to help her boyfriend escape, adding that she had no criminal history. ‘‘The heart has ruled the head and has brought her to court on a very serious charge,’’ he said. But Magistrate Luisa Bazzani said the hotel room booking showed it was clear the escape had been planned. She said aiding and abetting a prisoner was a serious charge. ‘‘Helping a prisoner escape from custody calls for a jail term, whether it’s her debut into the criminal justice system or not. It brings the whole system to its knees,’’ she said. Harris was sentenced to three months imprisonment, but the term was wholly suspended. She is still in a relationship with Clarke. Langi Kal Kal Prison is an unfenced, minimum-security working farm for Ararat prison inmates with low-security ratings, including those nearing the end of their sentence.

BY LAURA LITTLE VICTORIA University hopes it will be given a share of the $200 million in funding the state government is returning to TAFEs. The government cut $290 million from TAFE funding last year, causing Victoria University to scrap about 80 courses, slash 100 jobs and increase fees. As reported by the Weekly, VU dropped courses in animal studies and events and tourism from its Werribee campus. Courses in boat building, sports and fitness, hospitality, business and financial services were also axed at other campuses. Premier Denis Napthine last week announced the government would hand back $200 million over four years to the state’s TAFEs to ‘‘support innovation and structural reform’’. Dr Napthine said the funding would ensure the financial viability of TAFEs. VU deputy vice-chancellor Professor

More than 120 volunteers will help Point Cook CFA in its bid to break last year’s record fundraising total of $21,300 for the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal. Helped by State Emergency Service, Rotary and other volunteers, fireys will start rattling tins on Thursday, March 28 at Sanctuary Lakes and Point Cook town centre, asking residents to open their wallets and hearts for the hospital. A doorknocking drive begins at 8.30am on March 29. Point Cook CFA spokeswoman Brooke Simon said the brigade had received a groundswell of community support, with Carranballac College lending two buses and businesses donating vouchers and goods, including a hand-made wooden fire truck toy box, for an online auction. Others would volunteer at a family fun day. More details: facebook.com/Point Cook GoodFridayAppeal

Anne Jones said it was vital Melbourne’s west received a share of the funding. She said the money would help VU adjust to changes caused by last year’s funding cuts. She was also hopeful the money could be used to develop the university’s community integrated learning hubs in Altona and Sunbury and further plans for a trades academy in Melbourne. But the Australian Education Union’s Victorian Branch said the $200 million was not enough to reverse the damage caused by the funding withdrawal. Branch vice-president Greg Barclay estimated VU had lost $32 million in funding last year. He said a share in $50 million per year over four years would not allow VU to reduce student fees or reinstate teachers who had lost their jobs. “This re-injection of funding will not alleviate the cost of education for students, nor will it see the reinstatement of the 2000 teachers who lost their jobs across the state.’’

Food van to feed homeless HOMELESS youth will have access to fresh and nutritious food following the launch of a food van in Wyndham. Open Family Australia began operating a food van in the municipality last week as part of its Nutrition, Outreach, Support and Health (NOSH) program. The program has been running in western Sydney since 2009. Wyndham was chosen as the first Victorian location for the van after Open Family noticed an increase in homeless youths in the area. Spokeswoman Melinda Octigan said the organisation had been providing outreach services to homeless youths in Wyndham since 2007 through the Hoppers Crossing Youth Resource Centre. ‘‘One of the problems in Wyndham is there is not a lot of emergency housing. We have people coming to the youth resource centre who are living in squats so there is certainly a need for the program,’’ she said. The van will visit areas where homeless youth and young people who are

Outreach: Nosh co-ordinator Paula Hearden will provide homeless youth with fresh food. unemployed or not attending school are known to gather – such as shopping centres, parks and train stations – two or three days a week. The launch of the Wyndham program coincided with the release of an Australian Research Alliance for Children and Youth report card on the well-being of

the nation’s young people. The report found 62.9 per cent of youth were homeless, up from 56 per cent in 2006. Less than half had sought help from support services such as Open Family. Less than 5 per cent ate the recommended daily intake of vegetables, while 56 per cent consumed enough fruit.

WORKERS at a Laverton distribution centre for Coles are celebrating after winning a pay rise and shift loading without industrial action. As exclusively reported by the Weekly last month, warehouse workers threatened to strike after learning they were among the lowest paid in Melbourne. Packers and forklift drivers at the Polar Fresh Coles Laverton Distribution Centre had been receiving a base rate of $23.81 an hour — $6.35 less than those doing similar work for Woolworths in Broadmeadows and $5.37 below IGA cold store workers in Laverton. They were also going without shift loadings and being paid less than their Coles counterparts in the east, who received up to $28.72 an hour and full shift penalties. National Union of Workers organiser Matt Toner said

that after the Weekly story, the company made an offer which workers overwhelmingly accepted. Workers will receive a 4.5 per cent increase in the first year, followed by 4 per cent rises in the second and third years. The increases will bring the base rate of pay up to $24.88 an hour the first year and $26.91 in the third year. ‘‘The outcome delivered on the shift loading claim, which was to compensate people for the unsocial hours they were working,’’ Mr Toner said. ‘‘We didn’t get pay parity with other sites, but we did significantly improve upon and catch up to other industries’ rates of pay. ‘‘A worker on afternoon shift will be — including wage increases — about $14,500 better off; night shift is about $11,300 [better off].’’ — Goya Dmytryshchak

ripped through her jeans. And it wasn’t the first time; cuts and scrapes are among the hazards of macropod rescues. “Their claws can rip through anything,” O’Connor says. The Point Cook rescue was just one in a busy day of wildlife rescues. On that day, Wildlife Victoria received almost 300 calls to attend distressed, disorientated and injured fauna. Increasingly displaced by the city’s sprawl, the native wildlife is tearing at suburbia, trying to find sanctuary. “People are always surprised to hear the majority of our calls come from suburban Melbourne,” Wildlife Victoria relationship manager Amy Amato says. In past year, Wildlife Victoria received more than 3500 calls to help injured native birds, mammals and reptiles across Melbourne’s west and north-western suburbs.

The eastern grey kangaroo accounted for almost half of the 744 incidents in Macedon Ranges and also dominated callouts in Brimbank, Hume, Melton and Moorabool. Ringtail possums topped the list of animals requiring rescue in Moonee Valley, Maribyrnong and Hobsons Bay. Creatures great and small were hit by vehicles, chased by dogs, attacked by cats, became entangled in fences, were trapped in buildings, or were the victims of deliberate cruelty by people. “It is happening more and more,” Amato says of the grim toll. ‘‘We have a darter, someone who actually tranquillisers the ’roos, and we have doubled the amount of callouts to him because

tuart Law was working at the desk of his Point Cook home when the wallaby bounded past the desk and down the tiled hall. “It was surreal. I just sat there for a second and thought, did I just see that?” he said. “Then I heard it. It had run into the laundry and was frantically trying to get out.” Shutting the door to contain the stressed animal, Law rang a vet and then, on their advice, Wildlife Victoria. Within 15 minutes two experienced rescuers were on the doorstep. “They gave it a tranquilliser because it was very, very stressed,” Law says. “They waited for it to calm, bagged it and took it away.” The animal was released unharmed back into the bush, but rescuer Kym O’Connor was not so lucky. She suffered a deep gash to her thigh where the frightened, scrabbling animal had

it’s just crazy out there. We think it has to do with the development that is going on around the fringe and the lack of planning. The habitat is just getting decimated. “The developers have no plans for wildlife corridors for these animals to be able to move through into areas where they are safer, so they get pushed out on to roads and then they get disoriented and move closer and closer into town.” Just how much wildlife exists in longestablished inner urban areas is underscored by Wildlife Victoria statistics which show more rescues in Moonee Valley than in rapidly growing Melton and Moorabool local government areas combined. Moonee Valley council is among the most proactive environmentally. It has created more than 30 hectares for conservation in the past four years. It is home to more than 100 fauna species and 170 native flora species. These range from the nationally significant powerful owl and the greyheaded flying fox to the iconic platypus in the Maribyrnong and swamp wallabies on the river flats as close to the city as Essendon. Within the next month, the council is due to turn the first sod on a $460,000 project to restore the natural stormwater course – sent underground in the concrete craze of the 1960s – through the river red gums in Napier Park. One of only two stands of river red gums surviving in Melbourne, the Napier Park trees and the associated grassy woodlands foster an entire ecosystem, from the microbats, possums, cockatoos and lorikeets to the lizards and insects living in the leaf litter. Council environment co-ordinator Sheridan Blunt says scarcely 20 per cent of the mammals that existed at the time of European settlement survive in the inner suburbs. She says biodiversity is gradually increasing as environmental awareness grows. “It has been very interesting how you manage a natural environment in a non-natural situation and that is the essence of urban ecology I guess,” she says. “The more obvious biodiversity is still out in our rural areas, but to be honest that is being changed so rapidly through urbanisation, and also through farming techniques, that some of these species are finding more of a refuge in urban areas in some instances. “It’s not black and white any more.” Naturalist and award-winning children’s author Peter Macinnes says the key to conservation is “passing the light” from one generation to the next. “There are a huge number of things living right out there in the suburban backyard,” he says. “One of the tricks I like showing to young kids is to open an umbrella, turn it upside down, grab a branch and shake it into the umbrella. “There is always a complete ecosytem there, all sorts of stuff falls off and who knows who might catch the bug.” I To report sick, injured or orphaned wildlife phone 1300 094 535.

Big is an understatement Embrace the space with five bedrooms, each with its own ensuite and walk-in robes, writes Mark Bunker his one-year-old, Porter Davis-built house has been cleverly designed across two levels. Living areas begin on the ground floor with an open study off the entry. A hallway with hardwood floorboards flows through to a carpeted lounge room with decorative cornices and ceiling bulkhead. Double doors open to the main bedroom, which has a parent’s retreat and twin walk-in wardrobes. Its en suite also impresses with dual vessel-style basins, a spa and rain showerhead. The kitchen will impress the family chef with its Blanco 900mm cooker, dishwasher,

T

self-closing drawers and cupboards, an island bench topped with Caesarstone, and dual sinks with an industrial-style mixer tap. What’s more there’s a butler’s pantry with cooktop. Guests needn’t have to traipse up the stairs to access the bathroom, with a powder room located on the ground floor. Two sets of bi-fold doors from the light-filled family-meals area open out to the paved outdoor entertainment area, designed for alfresco-style dining. A carpeted theatre room is wired for surround sound and a projector, and there’s also Foxtel connectivity.

The remaining four bedrooms — all with walk-in wardrobes and en suites with single basins and stone benchtops — are upstairs. Two en suites have polished floor tiles and one bedroom has access to a balcony. A plush carpeted rumpus room provides plenty of space for a game of snooker. It too has Foxtel connectivity. The backyard is a blank canvas with plenty of space for a pool and room to park more than one boat and caravan. The house in Werribee River estate is just a stone’s throw from the river.

Good parenting, by mouse click BY CAROLE LEVY n a world where 22 per cent of parents in Australia admit they have no control over their young children’s and teens’ online activities, the issue of protection from cyber bullying is of major concern. This is especially alarming as 78 per cent of parents claim to control their children’s computer use, yet just one in three has internet filtering in place. Craig Kennedy, owner of Point Cook and Moonee Ponds Telstra stores, believes BigPond Security can help monitor children’s online behaviour. ‘‘Cyber bullying is a scary prospect for both children and parents,’’ he says. ‘‘According to 2008 Microsoft/Galaxy research, 31 per cent of 14 to 17 year olds have experienced cyber bullying — that’s a daunting statistic. ‘‘So what can parents do to ensure their child’s online safety? Firstly, they need to communicate with their kids and get involved and familiar with technology.’’ Telstra Safe Social is a BigPond Security feature that alerts parents when: ■ The conversation on a child’s account ‘turns nasty’, which can indicate cyber bullying ■ Words being used in their child’s feed indicate something of concern might happen ■ The photos or videos they are watching might be unsuitable ■ They add new friends, especially those ‘out of their network’ or potentially age-inappropriate Parental Control, Mr Kennedy says, is another BigPond Security feature that can give parents further peace of mind. ‘‘There are easy-to-understand protection policies tailored to ensure young kids and teens are accessing websites suitable for their age. It allows them to connect only when parents think it’s suitable.’’ Parents are encouraged to report cyber bullying to their child’s school and to their internet service provider.

Online security: BigPond has features to keep kids cyber safe. Anti-phishing is another BigPond Security feature that parents may find helpful. ‘‘Children can unknowingly place themselves in risky situations by posting personal information online. Once it’s done, it can be very difficult to remove. ‘‘This can include their name or address, photos, a mobile phone number, school name

March 20, 2013

and details of friends and family.’’ Parents are welcome to call into either store to discuss their cyber needs and concerns. Welltrained staff can offer advice about products and explain their applications and associated costs. Visit the new government website cybersmart.gov.au for excellent information on keeping children safe online.

Wyndham’s Alive this weekend as the annual Weerama Festival occurs again. The annual festival gives our community the chance to get together to enjoy live music, multicultural performances, craft stalls, carnival rides and more! Saturday sees many family orientated events such as a Children’s Funfest at Chirnside Park, a Scavenger Hunt commencing at Iramoo Community Centre from 9am and a Pool Party at the Werribee Outdoor Pool. Werribee CBD comes alive on Sunday for the Riverwalk Street Parade at 11am and performances by multicultural groups from 12pm at Station Place. On Sunday come along for amongst other things the craft market and rides. Check out ‘Weerama 2013’ on Facebook for more information. - Cr Adele Hegedich

WYNDHAM

The Wyndham Multi-Cultural Fiesta will be held on Sunday March 24th in Station Place and this is an event not to be missed. The committee lead by Kathy Brunton have been planning and working hard all year to make sure we will see a wonderland of colour, culture, crafts, fine foods and lots of workshops for children through to all age groups. The entertainment on the stage will be brilliant featuring many different cultural groups from many nations and you may be able to join in and learn to dance as well. I have the honour of opening the festival at 1.00pm so please come down and join with us and have a wonderful day. Look forward to seeing you Sunday. - Heather

Details of the he latest GT3 have just been revealed, together with the information that it’s coming to Australia later in the year. Though the new 911 GT3 is based on the latest 911 Carrera, there have been major changes to the engine, transmission and dynamics that almost make it a separate model.

engine that for the first time has direct petrol injection. It provides up to 350kW (475hp in ‘real’ performance car terms). It has titanium connecting rods and forged pistons to let it rev all the way to 9000 rpm. Porsche 911 GT3 comes standard with a new seven-speed PDK automated-manual doubleclutch gearbox with ultra-fast sequential shifting. It features shorter gear ratios than the standard 911, resulting in acceleration from zero to 100km/h in just 3.5 seconds. It gets to 200 in less than 12 seconds. In the right conditions this hot new Porsche 911 GT3 can reach 315km/h. For the first time, the PDK transmission allows the driver to leave the gear shifts entirely to the adaptive transmission control. It comes with two switching strategies: Sport and Race Track. The use of active rear-wheel steering for the first time on the new 911 GT3 gives excellent handling precision and a high level of lateral dynamics. Depending on road speed, the system steers in the opposite or the same direction as the front wheels, to improve agility and stability. Porsche GT3 also has an electronically

At the rear axle, larger braking discs with a 380mm diameter are used, the ventilation holes of the discs have been redesigned, and cooling is improved by way of additional brake cooling ducts on the rear axle.

Plenty to satisfy an automotive ‘Oliver’ Derek Ogden and Ewan Kennedy road test the Audi A6 limited edition s if the Audi A6 allroad quattro were not special enough, the German automobile manufacturer has brought out a limited edition for those automotive Oliver Twists who ask for more. The third generation of the Avant (that’s Audispeak for station wagon) has just dropped in Down Under, and with only 150 cars — replete with the latest features — on offer, it’s odds-on to have buyers digging deep for the $117,900-plus to park one in the garage. Highlights include four-zone airconditioning, electric opening and closing tailgate, 20-inch five-parallel spoke alloy wheels, heated front seats and a choice of four metallic paint colours. At almost five metres long and two metres wide, the Audi A6 allroad quattro has an imposing on-road presence. Xenon lights, including daytime running lights, are standard, with the option of LED headlamps featuring an automatic dipping function. On the downside, from the rear the vehicle has a dated look.

appear to be competing with each other for attention, while the rear view from the driver’s seat is severely limited. Legroom front and back is expansive and shoulder space up front benefits from the seats being 20 millimetres further apart. The luggage area is impressively versatile with room for 595 litres of kit. With the back seats folded away, this is increased to 1680 litres. A range of roof racks is on offer, and modifications to body components and engine management mean the A6 allroad quattro can tow up to 21⁄2 tonnes. The wagon will hit 100km/h in 6.6 seconds from rest — 180kW of power and 580Nm of torque from the 3.0-litre turbo-diesel V6 see to that. Over an easy cruise on the motorway, the A6 allroad quattro Limited Edition went through a frugal 5.9 litres of fuel per 100 kilometres, which is impressive for a big car with a high-power engine. Around town, it hovered around eight litres per 100 kilometres, still impressively low.

Imposing: Only a few Australians will get the chance to enjoy the Audi A6 allroad quattro limited edition.

Coursing along in a Corsa HE recent emergence of Opel in the Australian car market makes for interesting times for small-car buyers. The car once sold here as the Holden Barina is back, this time carrying its original name of Opel Corsa. Opel, a division of General Motors since the 1930s, hopes to gain an image that’s European, thereby pushing itself further upmarket than the Asian-produced small cars.

Falcons, Imperials set for thriller BY LANCE JENKINSON A THRILLING climax is on the cards in the Williamstown and District Cricket Association’s marathon sixday A1 turf grand final between Wyndhamvale Falcons and Williamstown Imperials. ‘‘We’ve lost a day and a half to the weather and we’re still going to get a result,’’ Imperials batsman Daniel Slattery enthused. Last weekend saw both sides land significant blows. There were only a relatively small amount of overs bowled, but enough to see the game tighten considerably. The Falcons landed the first punch, securing a lead of 85 on first innings with players of both sides doffing their caps to Falcons import Andrew Ford, who made 112 of his side’s 244, ably supported by Lee Veal (62). The Imperials encountered too many speed humps in their first dig, being all out for 159, but the Falcons’ stronghold on the game loosened

slightly on a damp fourth day. They slumped to 4-29 with danger men Ford and Lance Macdougall back in the pavilion before Andrew Mundey and Adam Moscatiello went to work to steady the ship. The Falcons have their noses in front with a 168-run lead. Having led on first innings, they do not have to force the issue. ‘‘Our goal is to bat as long as we can,’’ Falcons all-rounder Ryan Radford said. ‘‘We’ll try and make it as hard as possible. Any lead over 230 or 240, we’ll be confident of defending it. You back yourself in no matter what the situation.’’ The Imperials want six wickets and want them fast. Slattery is confident of the quality in his side batting to chase down any total with plenty of time still remaining in the game. ‘‘It’s in the balance. There’s still two full days, so there’s enough time. We’ve batted well all year so we’re happy to go out and chase whatever they set us.’’

Looking for gaps: Lance Macdougall plays through mid-off for Wyndhamvale.

Changed Hoppers continue pre-season form HOPPERS Crossing made it five straight Football Federation Victoria pre-season victories with a 2-1 win over new boys Point Cook at Grange Reserve on Saturday. The Reds have had to deploy a vastly different line-up to the one that claimed the last premiership in the now defunct provisional league 2 northwest. There will also be a lot of changes to the make-up of the side when it takes to the field in the state league 4 west season opener next month. Coach Joey Vella said the side was tracking well in the absence of a number of first team regulars.

But results are not the be all, end all, and that includes their FFV state knockout cup run, which enters the third round on Saturday when Balmoral arrives at Hogans Road. ‘‘This part of the year, you’re still treating it as practice games,’’ Vella said. ‘‘It’s all about match fitness and you’re not going to risk anyone who is not 100 per cent. Having said that, once you’re out on the park, you want to win.’’ The Reds are still up in the air as to what their starting XI will look like for round one. Three championship-winning players, brothers Drew and Brett Gilmore and Tom Orndahl, will not be there. Drew is undecided about his football future but the travel from Geelong is believed to have taken

He could make a surprise return. The Reds have no shortage of willing takers for the vacant positions. Their side has largely been based around youth in practice matches and several are staking a claim. The club has brought in Brian Chesson from higher division Werribee City and Dandenong. The seasoned campaigner adds much-needed experience in the middle of the park and his quality distribution will prove invaluable in a promotion year.

WERRIBEE Tigers have finalised their leadership group for the Victorian Football League season. Club games record holder Robbie Castello will return for a second term as captain. ‘‘Robbie did not put a foot wrong last year and is thriving with the role,” Tigers coach Scott West said. Liston Trophy winner Ben Ross will be the new vice-captain with forward Ben Warren the deputy vice-captain. The wider leadership group will include new recruits Kris Pendlebury and Jarred Moore, along with established players Nathan Laracy, Sam Wormald and Jake Wilson. The Tigers were beaten by five points in their last pre-season hit out against Coburg on Sunday. Their first match of the home-and-away rounds will be against Port Melbourne at Avalon Airport Oval on March 3.

WEST B1 GRAND FINAL

WERRIBEE Centrals started the Victorian Turf Cricket Association west B1 grand final in a white hot fashion and had St Andrews backed into a corner at 7-31 in a touch over 22 overs on Saturday at Laverton Park. ‘‘To have a side 7-31 on a road, you couldn’t hope for any more,’’ Centurions opening batsman Chris Duffin said. ‘‘The first day panned out perfectly. Our fielding was phenomenal, Sammy [Crea] was bowling unbelievable and they couldn’t work Aaron [Edrich] out at all.’’ Then the rain came and the Saints were let off the hook by a downpour that stopped play. They had a chance to regroup, start the second day afresh and build a score of 90 — nothing flash, but better than the projected score when they were earlier 8-32. The Centurions began to make errors in the field that were evident in their final-round clash with Point Cook and, perhaps understandably, complacency set in.

Werribee Centrals 6-131 (MW Nankervis 47 J Lions 40no; M Dorricott 2-29 TR Cullum 2-32) v St Andrews 90 (TR Cullum 35no; S Crea 6-30 AK Edrich 2-18 P Crea 2-23)

‘‘It was a completely different story from the first day,’’ Duffin admitted. ‘‘We played really well on Saturday and were really ruthless. Coming back the next day, I’m not sure if the guys were a bit complacent, but we let ourselves down in the field and are very disappointed with that.’’ The Centurions are still in a match-winning position. To roll a side for 90 when it has elected to bat is the stuff of dreams. Crea, one of the most talented young players in the competition, brought his best to the table with 6-30 off 18 overs and Edrich strangled the life out of the Saints with 2-18 off 18 overs, including eight maidens. The Centurions made a hesitant start to be 2-3. That brought Duffin and Mark Nankervis to the

crease and they were less than certain against a new ball. ‘‘It took me 24 balls to get off the mark and Mark was one off about 30,’’ Duffin said. ‘‘We just had to knuckle down and we did that. The longer we were out there, the better.’’ Duffin (18) took the score along to 49 before he was trapped lbw. Nankervis (47) kicked along but was removed before the first innings target was reached. Jared Lions played a significant role in the middle order, surviving to stumps on 40 and moving the score along to 6-131, a lead of 41. The Centurions still have plenty of batting to come. ‘‘We’ll go out there and try to bat as long as we can to make it hard for them,’’ Duffin said. ‘‘We’re feeling confident with where we’re at at the moment, but it’s a grand final and anything can happen.’’ With 160 overs left in the game, the Centurions can dictate the flow, having sewn up a first innings lead. The third and fourth days will determine the premiers this weekend.

but the Boomers steadied for a 66-58 win and showed the young Devils that playing a half of basketball will not suffice in this league. ‘‘We’re very disappointed to lose,’’ Devils coach Paul Jones said. ‘‘It’s one that we have let go. I just hope that one doesn’t come back to bite us at the end of the year.’’ The Devils got off to a flyer with a scorching 14-0 run in the second period to lead by 16 with 1.28 on the clock before half-time. The 88 seconds that followed, an

eternity at this level, saw the Devils go from a position of power to give the Boomers all the momentum at halftime. ‘‘The disappointing part was Bulleen only had three points in the period up until then,’’ Jones said. ‘‘They scored eight points in the last 90 seconds. We left the door open for them.’’ The second half saw the Boomers run away with the game. Their import, Corey Standerfer, had a big say in proceedings with 22

points, nine rebounds, five assists and two blocks. Josh Oswald was the pick of the Devils with 12 points and six rebound, Muka Silver was busy with seven points and nine rebound and Simon Bradbury reeled in nine boards. The Devils dearly missed young star Jordan Hughes, who was unavailable for personal reasons but will be back for the Devils’ home opener against the Waverley Falcons on Saturday night.

SANCTUARY Lakes is holding up the ladder after one weekend of the Golf Victoria men’s division 1 pennant. The Lakes went down six matches to one against last year’s runner-up Commonwealth in a one-sided season opener at the Southern Golf Club on Sunday. Brent O’Donaghue was the Lakes only victor, defeating Commonwealth captain Matt Hinkley. In the colts division 1, Sanctuary Lakes made a much better start, downing Kingswood three matches to two. Lakes captain Ben Lowe got off to a winning start, along with teammates Nathan Kungl and Paulo Riccardi.

Devils leave door open for Boomers’ victory FACING a newly promoted side first up is a dangerous proposition. New boys Werribee Devils had anticipated their arrival to the top-flight men’s basketball championship from the moment they finished division 1 as minor premiers last season. They arrived at the Templestowe Leisure Centre on Sunday ready and raring to go and created more than a fair share of headaches for the Bulleen Boomers. For a moment, it appeared as though an upset could be on the cards,

WERRIBEE Devils have made a winning start under new coach Lloyd Klaman. The one-time coach of the Canberra Cannons in the National Basketball League, Klaman boosted the women’s division 2 squad with the recruitment of a number of experienced players to create a more balanced team. One of those new faces, Lisa Troyahn, was the cornerstone of Sunday’s stunning 60-54 road win over Keilor Thunder at the Keilor Basketball Stadium. Troyahn, who has championshiplevel experience with the Hume City Broncos, posted 19 points and eight rebounds, and got to the charity stripe 11 times, in a stellar performance. The Devils bossed the opening half to take a 36-21 lead into the half-time break. Morgan Owen got busy with 11 points and six rebounds. Olivia Klaman (seven points), Georgia Tauschke (six points, eight rebounds and four assists) and captain Emma Coyne (four rebounds and five assists) were valuable contributors. The Devils’ hold on the game became shaky in the second half, but they managed to hold on for a memorable six-point win. They stay on the road this weekend to face Casey Cavaliers at the Cranbourne Basketball Stadium on Saturday night.

Tigers will make sure final’s a ripper BY LANCE JENKINSON WERRIBEE and the Victorian SubDistrict Cricket Association first XI grand final in the same sentence – it sure has a nice ring to it. The Tigers have made it happen for the first time since 1995-96, after 17 years in the wilderness. This is a super-impressive Tigers outfit that has defied the weight of history in an incredible summer. The players who will take to the field against Melton at MacPherson Park in the season-decider on Saturday and Sunday you just know will do the city of Wyndham proud. They have shown resilience all summer, to go with their skill and class. The finals series has thrown several curve balls the Tigers’ way, but the players have remained focused and simply got on with the job. They have a proud and passionate president in Ivo Havard, a strong coaching panel consisting of Havard, Jeff Dean and David Dodemaide, and quality on-field leaders in Shaun Dean and Tim O’Brien, who set the right examples for their team. It’s a set-up that was bound to bring

a flag, they did so over arch rivals Melton and did it on the road. ‘‘Hopefully history is on our side,’’

captain Shaun Dean said with a chuckle. ‘‘It could be a bit of an omen for us.’’

Melton, the minor premiers, and Werribee, who finished second, have been far and away the best two sides in the south-west group this season. So it’s fitting that these two great western rivals will play off for the holy grail. Whenever these two towns go at it on the sporting field, it is fierce and the bragging rights last a lifetime. It will be no different this weekend. ‘‘There’s a bit of a rivalry,’’ Dean said. ‘‘There’s a lot of history between the two clubs. ‘‘A lot of Melton people know a lot of Werribee people, so there should be a fair crowd there.’’ The last time the two sides met was at Chirnside Park in October. The Tigers prevailed in a one-day game by eight wickets and will gain a lot of confidence from that. But Melton has proved its credentials time and again in this competition. It holds the No.1 finals ranking for a reason and has the local knowledge of hosting the grand final. This is a genuine toss-of-the-coin affair. It promises to be a ripper.

March 20, 2013

THE Werribee Tigers are proving indestructible. No matter what obstacles have been thrown their way, they’ve dusted themselves off and got on with the task. The Tigers have been a dominant force this Victorian Sub-District Cricket Association south-west group first XI finals series and won their way through to a grand final date with Melton. They poleaxed the Kingston Saints by a massive 260 runs in the qualifying final and slaughtered Elsternwick by nine wickets in Saturday’s semi-final. The most pressing tasks would appear to be those away from the field of battle. ‘‘There’s been a lot going on off the field, that’s for sure,’’ Tigers captain Shaun Dean told the Weekly. ‘‘We’ve put it all aside and came out and played some clinical cricket. It shows the character of the team. ‘‘We’re not letting it affect our cricket. That’s been spot on.’’ The Tigers have had to deal with a long list of issues. In the opening week

SCOREBOARD Semi-final Werribee 1-100 (MJ Dean 51no) d Elsternwick 97 (HE Nurse 29 J Purton 3-25 T O’Brien 2-4) First XI grand final Werribee Tigers v Melton Lions Saturday and Sunday, at MacPherson Park, Melton

of the finals, the players had to roll their own pitch due to a strike by Wyndham Council workers. ‘‘Myself and three other guys had to prepare the wicket for a final,’’ Dean said. ‘‘What other club in Australia has had to do that?’’ Nature has played its part in the frustration too – record high temperatures one weekend followed by a cold snap last weekend. The rain led to frustration about the VSDCA playing rules, which state if a game does not reach the two-hour mark on day one, it reverts to a onedayer on the second day. The Tigers, who worked so hard to finish second, felt their advantage diminished by playing a limited-overs game.

‘‘We only got an hour and 31 minutes in on Saturday,’’ Dean said. ‘‘Yesterday’s result was null and void and today it was white balls and coloured clothing, a totally different game. ‘‘It’s ridiculous for the competition to have a rule like that. You might as well make it a one-day competition if you’re going to do that stuff in the finals.’’ To frustrate Dean further, he won the toss on Saturday, but the umpires ordered another on Sunday, which he lost. That was not where the drama ended. Veteran David Wolfe suffered a slight knee injury, and 12th man Adam Duxson was called up at the last minute to open the batting. At least the semi-final was fairly straightforward for the Tigers. They bowled out Elsternwick for 97 in 36.3 overs with Matthew Thomson putting on a bowling master class with 1-12 off seven and Jake Purton, who missed the start because of work, taking 3-25. The Tigers reached the target one down in the 22nd over with Matthew Dean top-scoring with 51 not out.

Weerama Festival 2013 Howzat for an Aussie music icon? MARCH 23 - 24

Famous in the music industry as lead singer of “Sherbet”, Daryl Braithwaite has carved out a place in Australian music history, achieving phenomenal success since starting out in 1969. Between 1971 and 1978, Sherbet released 15 albums and 30 singles, many reaching national top 40. Best known among them include ‘Child’s Play’, ‘Slipstream’, ‘Cassandra’, ‘Life’, ‘Summer Love’ and, of course,‘Howzat’ which also had chart success in England and the US. Taking the lead role in the stage production ‘Tommy’, Daryl was also crowned King of Pop (similar to Australian Music Awards) in 1975, 1976 and 1977. Sherbet was named Best Australian Group every year between 1973 and 1978. Following his farewell tour in 1983, Daryl and wife Sarah Taylor built their new home in Mount Macedon where his son Oscar was born in 1986. Daryl hit the heights again in 1989, releasing his album ‘Edge’ which became the highest selling CD in Sony Music Australia’s history. A single off his ‘Rise’ album, ‘The Horses’, was the 1991 AMA’s song of the year. Throughout his career, Daryl’s unique and emotive voice has captured a time and place integral to the Australian psyche. Don’t miss this icon of Aussie music when he performs at 4pm on Sunday on the YPA Main Stage.
