5973 6424 or email: THE seal as he greeted early Sunday morning users of the boardwalk at Hastings, left and below; in the shallows after taking a dive from the bridge, right, before finding there was enough water in the channel with the incoming tide to head back to the more familiar surrounds of Western Port. Pictures: Frank Henke and David Chalke.

Seal’s time out for boardwalk IT seems a boardwalk at Hastings is just as convenient for flippers as feet, if the appearance of a seal of Sunday is any guide. The male New Zealand long nose fur seal was spotted at 7.30am by Katrina Chalke who was jogging to Pelican Pantry for breakfast. As she tried to cross the first bridge after the Babbington Reserve the seal made it clear “with a roar and a flash of his “rather uninviting yellow coloured teeth” that he’d made a claim to a section of boardwalk. A phone call to her husband saw the message about the new master of boardwalk relayed to the marine response unit based at Melbourne Zoo

in Parkville. The unit arrived about 90 minutes later, while the Chalkes were kept busy diverting people and dogs away from the seal. “The marine response experts thought that he was probably the same animal that had been seen around Blind Bight recently, so they called a wildlife carer from there who was familiar with the seal and he confirmed that it was the same animal,” Mr Chalke said. “The concern was that the seal was exhibiting unusual behaviour that he might be injured or ill. “While the best course of action was being debated the seal took matters into his own hands and dived off the boardwalk into Kings Creek, but in-

stead of heading downstream towards Western Port he went in the opposite direction, heading under Marine Parade towards the footy ground. “Only a stalwart effort by one of the marine response unit team prevented the seal from entering the culverts where he would certainly have been trapped.” Mr Chalke described the scene as “reminiscent of Humphrey Bogart in the African Queen”, with the seal detouring into the mangroves before finding deeper water in the creek before “rolling, diving and porpoising happily on his way downstream and off towards the bay”. Fran Henke was also on the board-

walk where a vet from Tyabb and the marine rescue team members were discussing “the strength of knockout drops that would allow the seal to recover quickly on reaching the sea”. “But the seal had other ideas. He lumbered up the boardwalk to the bridge, squished through the railings, flopping on to the muddy tidal bank of Kings Creek,” Mrs Henke said. “The seal floundered through shallows, over mangrove shoots, then running out of water realised his error and turned, lumbering with some swimming as the tide came in, the way he came. “We were concerned he might try to get back up on the deck, so vet

with darts ready, marine rescue unit guys, nets and pet pack at hand, ran back. They had a wetsuit if needed to recover the seal in the wetlands.” The Chalkes made it to their home at Tyabb five hours after the seal had been spotted. “Our boots were thick with mangrove mud, but we felt that we had done our good deed for the day,” Mr Chalke said. And Mrs Henke? She rode her scooter home “hoping the seal made it as the team headed to St Kilda where two cormorants had been found covered in oil. Sunday mornings are never dull”. Keith Platt

Access all areas

The liveability of the peninsula, and the physical and mental wellbeing of those who call it home, rely upon cultural and social connection, access to major services, employment and education. We’re currently inviting feedback on three initiatives that aim to foster connectivity, diversity and mobility for our entire community. Our new Reconciliation Action Plan seeks to cultivate trust and respect between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and non-Indigenous Australians by promoting an understanding of the diverse cultural history of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community and the cultural heritage values of the Bunurong/Boon Wurrung people. Our Draft Road Improvement Strategy aims to raise the standard of the Shire’s local road network to meet increasing mobility needs and ensure the safety of all road users, just as our Draft Pedestrian Access Strategy aims to enhance pedestrian movement by improving the integration and safety of the Shire’s path network. Supporting individuals in the pursuit to realise their aspirations and enjoy a healthy life is vital to making our region a great place to live. We encourage you to have your say online so that ours is a community in which all feel safe, cared for and included.

We’re happy to announce another milestone for Rosebud Aquatic Centre following the appointment of Peddle Thorp Architects as principal consultant. With extensive experience creating world-class sports and aquatic centres, the firm will deliver a refined, environmentally sensitive and value for money facility for the whole peninsula to enjoy. Join us at Rosebud Memorial Hall from 5.30–7.30pm on Monday 28 May for a drop-in session to provide feedback on design plans and help us ensure the centre accommodates the needs of everyone in our community.

We enjoyed a wonderful celebration of kindness and camaraderie at the Pay It Forward Day Family Festival in April, a great partnership between community groups and Council held at Mornington Park Primary School in the name of fostering strong community spirit. We’re marking another step towards creating an all accessible peninsula, with construction works for the Octavia Street Changing Places toilet facility expected to be completed in June. This will be the first fully accessible toilet facility in the township and increase opportunities for inclusion and participation, ensuring people with disabilities have equal access to services and facilities.

We recently celebrated the opening of the Dorothy Houghton Walkway, a 270m path between Camerons Bight Beach and Sullivan Bay, named in honour of the first female Councillor for the Shire of Flinders. Committed to the preservation of public land and instrumental in the state government’s purchase of land along Sorrento foreshore, including Sullivan Bay, we’re proud to commemorate Mrs. Houghton’s efforts and hope to continue in her example.

We recently adopted the Short Stay Rental Accommodation Local Law to tackle problems of anti-social behaviour, noise disruptions, car parking congestion and poor rubbish disposal reported due to short stay accommodation in residential areas. The first of its kind in the state, the law addresses the potential impacts upon the local community by establishing a Code of Conduct that sets expectations of short stay rental accommodation properties and implements a Registration System to identify property owners and ensure they designate a person to respond to neighbour complaints and concerns.

benefit to residents of the Mornington Peninsula, at an unacceptable cost,” the shire states in its advocacy paper. It goes on to say that Hastings has been identified as a major activity centre and the “Port of Hastings industrial precinct as being of state significance”. Hastings — connected by rail to Stony Point — “is a far more appropriate destination for electric rail than Baxter”. The shire says Hastings has the capacity for population and industrial growth and there is “ample land” around its railway station to stable and maintain trains. “Given the significant impact any changes to the current Stony Point service would have on Mornington Peninsula communities, it is imperative that the Mornington Peninsula Shire council be recognised as a stakeholder and engaged with accordingly in discussions on electrification of any part of the service going forward,” the advocacy paper states. When asked by The News if the shire had been involved in any discussions with MPs or their representatives, the mayor Cr Bryan Payne said: “Council looks forward to working positively with both levels of government to ensure Mornington Peninsula Shire and the community is kept informed throughout the process. This will help ensure the benefits and impacts that this rail project should bring to the peninsula community will be strategically and carefully worked through in a timely manner.”






MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire wants Hastings, not Baxter, to be the end of the line when it comes to an electrified railway. The Labor state government has started a study to assess the cost benefits of electrifying the line from Frankston to Baxter with $3 million from the federal Coalition government. However, Mornington Peninsula Shire says Baxter – which lies within its municipal boundary – is not suitable for an electric train terminus. The shire, which feels it has been left out of the planning to electrify the line, says it is “imperative” that it be included in any future discussions. Federal Treasurer Scott Morrison joined fellow Liberal MPs Greg Hunt (Flinders) and Chris Crewther (Dunkley) in Frankston on Friday 11 May to spruik the latest federal budget (“Big bucks for rail but timing means everything” The News 15/5/18). Mr Morrison said the rail line extension had long been an important local project. While the budget includes a pledge to spend $225 million to electrify the rail line to Baxter, Mr Crewther said the total cost had been put at $500$800 million, so state funding will also be needed. Labor candidate for Dunkley Peta Murphy branded the funding “a hoax”, saying the full $225 million is not “actually in the budget”. Neither Mr Crewther or Mr Hunt

mentioned electorate boundary changes proposed by the Australian Electoral Commission while in Frankston (“Electoral ground moves for MPs The News 10/4/18). If the AEC’s proposal is adopted, Mr Crewther’s Dunkley electorate would lose Baxter and Mornington, which would then be added to Mr Hunt’s Flinders electorate. Meanwhile, Mornington Peninsula councillors are wondering why they have not been consulted about major transport changes proposed for a township within their shire. The shire’s polite approach to the state and federal governments - contained in an “advocacy paper” - belies the real position which sees some councillors seeing red over being left out of talks. Cr David Gill is a bit more forthright: “In my view is that this distant project is just electioneering for the [electorally] close Frankston area federal seat and if they were serious the shire would have been consulted.” He said the current federal budget should be “carefully scrutinised to see what will be in future budgets and in how many years time”. The shire says moving train stabling and maintenance and car parking “down the line” to Baxter “appears to be primarily to free up land in Frankston for development”. Making land available at Baxter would require “pushing out the Urban Growth Boundary and encroaching on the Mornington Peninsula Green Wedge”. “Electrification would offer minimal

GAS tankers will be a common sight in Western Port if AGL gets approvals to process imported liquified natural gas at Crib Point. Picture: Gary Sissons

MP urges ‘feedback’ for gas terminal FLINDERS MP Greg Hunt is urging “the community” to participate in the “feedback process” established by power supplier AGL which wants to moor a floating gas terminal at Crib Point. Work has started on preparing the existing jetty at Crib Point for the more than 300 metre long floating storage regasification unit (FSRU) although no government approvals have yet been given. The Port of Hastings Development Authority says it is undertaking “remediation works” on the jetty which are expected to be completed in January 2019. “[Sylvia] Simons was informed that Greg understands AGL are still completing their feasibility study to identify the risks associated with the

project and that Greg encourages the community to engage in AGL’s feedback process via Jay Gleeson of AGL,” his local media advisor Mathew Langdon told The News after it reported that Ms Simons was still awaiting a reply (“Jetty gets ready for gas” 15/5/18). The response from Mr Hunt’s office was made after the deadline for that edition of The News. Ms Simons, of Crib Point, said she regarded Mr Hunt’s reply as containing “the standard responses and advised AGL still has some requirements to provide and no approvals have been granted at this stage either by government or council”. In her original email to Mr Hunt Ms Simons said she was “extremely concerned” and “appalled at the possibil-

ity of the destruction of our area”. “We are a [internationally recognised] Ramsar area and supposedly environmentally protected. Looking at the information that has been gathered [about AGL’s plans] it would seem this is not so,” Ms Simons stated. “Apart from our wildlife, flora and fauna there would appear to be an extreme risk to the community from possible malfunction or a freak of nature that could cause an explosion, decimating the area, in the worst case scenario. “Notwithstanding this we are also a bushfire prone area. Our clean air could also be affected along with our quiet neighbourhood.” Ms Simons is still awaiting replies from several state Labor MPs about the gas terminal. Keith Platt

Electorate change objections mount Neil Walker MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire council has lodged objections to boundary changes to the Dunkley electorate that would see Mornington and the northern part of Baxter move into the Flinders electorate. Shire mayor Cr Bryan Payne wrote to the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) on 4 May to voice concerns about proposed electorate boundary changes to both Dunkley and Flinders. “In particular, we are concerned about the separation of Mt Eliza from the neighbouring township of Mornington,” Cr Payne stated in a letter to the AEC. “Mt Eliza benefits from being part of the same federal electorate as the township of Mornington, which is a major activity centre for Mt Eliza residents”. The News reported last week that federal Dunkley Liberal MP Chris Crewther urged community groups and individuals to object to the boundary changes (“MP against electorate changes”, The News 15/5/18). ABC elections analyst Antony Green has calculated Dunkley, won with a 1.4 per cent slim majority by Mr Crewther at the 2016 federal election, would be winnable for Labor with a margin of 1.3 per cent based on votes cast in 2016. Mr Green initially estimated a 0.9 per cent margin for Labor before revising the possible margin to 1.3 per cent. The Age reported Ukraine’s ambassador to Australia, Dr Mykola Kulinich, submitted an objection to the Dunkley boundary change stating: “UkraineAustralian relations can only be strengthened further by Mornington remaining within the Dunkley electorate”.

“I believe that the Ukrainian community in Dunkley will be disadvantaged by separating Mornington from the electorate, where many reside,” Dr Kulinich wrote in an email to the AEC. “One example is the ever-growing Blue Bay Cheese that has businesses in both Mornington and Frankston. This is a successful Ukrainian-Australian owned business. “They and their many mainly Ukrainian-Australian employees should not have to deal with two members of parliament, particularly given they deal with many immigration and employment related matters on a regular basis.” The seat of Flinders has been held by Liberal MP and federal Health Minister Greg Hunt since 2001 and was retained with an 11.8 per cent majority in 2016. If the boundary changes are implemented Carrum Downs, Sandhurst and Skye in Dunkley’s north will switch to the Isaacs electorate held by federal Labor MP Mark Dreyfus. The AEC received 32 objections to the planned Dunkley boundary changes and 35 against changes to the Flinders electorate footprint. Some objectors made submissions against changes to both electorates as part of their sole objection. Mornington & District Historical Society, the University of Third Age in Mornington, Mornington Little Athletics Centre, Beleura Junior Football Club, Baxter Residents and Traders Progress Action Committee (BRATPAC), Blue Bay Cheese, SAI Home and Community Care and the Frankston Dolphins Football Netball Club were organisations that made objections to the AEC about electorate changes. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull visited Seaford Hotel last Tuesday evening (15 May) for a “Politics in the Pub” event in the marginal seat of Dunkley.

Dead livestock: David Sims and the calf be believes was killed by eagles (Picture: Yanni) and, inset, a wedge-tailed eagle soars over Moorooduc last week (Picture: Gary Sissons)

Farmer says eagles killed calf MOOROODUC farmer David Sims believes eagles killed a new-born calf overnight at his Derril Road property, Thursday 17 May. He said he saw the eagles on the carcase as he drove into the paddock next morning looking for its mother and watched as they flew off into trees when he approached. He said flesh had been torn from the calf’s mouth and ear. Mr Sims, who runs 30 cattle on his 32 hectare property, said it appeared the calf had been born alive and then been killed because the thin tissue

on its feet had worn after it had walked around. He said its mother would have tried to protect it from danger. He said he had lost calves previously. The eagles stayed near the property most of the morning. BirdLife Mornington Peninsula president Max Burrows said he thought a calf would be too big for an eagle to tackle. “It is more likely to have been killed by a fox or wild dog,” he said. Eagles in Victoria are fully protected under the Wildlife Act 1975. Penalties apply.

Samaritans rally to pensioner’s plight Stephen Taylor GOOD Samaritans have rallied to help a pensioner who feared becoming homeless because of rising rents and limited housing stock. First, a reader offered him a suitable place to live rent-free and now the wheel has turned even further for Larry (surname withheld), who has been given a job by a former colleague doing what he does best: fixing sewing machines. Larry, who told his story to The News in February (“Pensioner feels the brunt in house hunt” 5/2/18), says his life has now turned around. “I am so grateful to all,” he said last week from the cottage on the 12-hectare property he helps look after in lieu of rent. “l was a victim of the 1989-90 depression during which I lost my investments, house and marriage. “At the age of 70 and after being retired for four years I looked for a long term permanent rental. With the previous four properties being sold from underneath me and fearing the same thing would happen again, I sought something more long term. “With the help of The News I was put in contact with some very kind people who offered me a small self-contained two bedroom apartment at the rear of the property in exchange for some minor farm work.” In the late 1980s, one of Larry’s duties as Victorian/Tasmanian state manager of Singer Sewing Machine Company was to hire staff. This led to a young Mark Foster being put on as an apprentice sewing machine mechanic. “When Singer and I parted ways, Mark stayed on to complete his apprenticeship and he would

call on my company until its demise. We had not seen each other since 1989-90,” Larry said. “Recently, and by sheer coincidence, we met up again. Mark has grown into a very humble and mature man with his own business [Sewfix Sewing Machine Repairs] in Seaford.” The two men rekindled their friendship and struck up an arrangement: Larry – the former boss – now works part-time for Mark the former apprentice. “He allows me to not only come and go when I want but also tinker with old sewing machines,” Larry said. “This not only keeps my mind and body active but it also makes me feel useful once again. “Sometimes I go with him for a pick-up or delivery of machines. It is like swings and roundabouts: he now tells me to sweep floors and clean the toilets.” Hearing of Larry’s plight in February, the Council to Homeless Persons said the state government should finance social housing projects through stamp duty revenues. “The number of people being evicted into homelessness has more than doubled over five years as rents rise,” CEO Jenny Smith said. Figures from the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare show that, last financial year, 43,751 people presented at Victorian homelessness services due to eviction, she said. The council says the increase from 17,930 five years ago is due to rising rents. Ms Smith said homelessness was also being driven by population growth, federal government housing taxation settings, and an absence of a national affordable housing plan. “Australia increasingly views housing as a commodity rather than the shelter we all need.”

Parking fines withdrawn FINES issued to five motorists in Booker Avenue, Mornington, last week have been withdrawn by Mornington Peninsula Shire. Motorist David Tucker and other staff from the nearby Peninsula Grange retirement village, presumed they had parked legally before work on Tuesday 8 May. But, when they came out at lunchtime, No Stopping signs had been installed and local laws officers – unaware that the signs had only just gone up – had booked them. (“Shire turns deaf ear on fines” The News 15/5/18). The unhappy motorists were advised they would have to appeal to the council if they wanted leniency

as this was the “official and only process to have an infringement withdrawn immediately”. Mr Tucker, who had slammed the parking infringements as “totally unreasonable”, said he received a letter after the article appeared to say the council had “reviewed the circumstances [and that] the infringement notice has been withdrawn”. The shire’s environment protection manager John Rankine said the new No Stopping zone in Booker Avenue “came about as a result of complaints from the community regarding traffic congestion”.

GUEST speaker at the June meeting of the Mornington Peninsula Family History Society Carol Rosenhain will discuss the life and work of James Malcolm Lean, MBE, who she wrote about in The Man Who Held the Nation’s Grief. The book tells the story of the man who had the unenviable task of writing letters of condolence to the parents of Australian soldiers killed in WWI. Formed almost 40 years ago, in 1979, society has compiled an extensive library and resource centre in the Frankston South Recreation Centre, 55 Towerhill Road, Frankston. New members are able to attend a free beginners’ class. Other classes cover various topics to do with family history, including a DNA class. Resources include books, journals, microfiche and microfilm, plus computers with access to Ancestry, Findmypast and the British newspaper archive. President Lynne Emblin said the society’s computers held local, interstate and overseas records. The local history index gave researchers access library records relating to early settlers in Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula area. History books published by members include Naming Frankston Streets - The People and Their Stories, Echoes From The Front - Frankston's Avenue of Honour, Langwarrin Settlers and Soldiers and 100 Years In Skye 1850-1950. The library opens at 11.30am Saturdays for research with the a guest speaker at 1.30pm on the first Saturday in February, April, June, August, October and December,. The talks are followed by afternoon tea. Other opening times are 10.30am-2.30pm Tuesday and Thursday, and 2-5pm Sundays. Yearly membership is $45 single, $70 family, or $10 a day.

Pre-loved books PRE-LOVED books are on sale at Mornington Peninsula Shire library branches to celebrate Library and Information Week. Libraries at Hastings, Mornington, Rosebud and Somerville will offer a wide selection of pre-loved books until Saturday 26 May. Proceeds from the book sales will go to the Cancer Council. The focus is on raising the profile of libraries and information service professionals in Australia. They will take the opportunity to showcase their resources, facilities, events, contacts and services through different programs and events to the community.

‘Deserter’ cleared with full military honours THE Merricks North family of a WWI soldier who went missing in Cairo and was labelled a deserter by the army in Egypt in 1916 is overjoyed that his reputation has been restored. Minister for Defence Personnel and Veterans Affairs Darren Chester confirmed prior to Anzac Day that Private Edward ‘Ned’ Attfield, who disappeared in Egypt and who had previously been incorrectly recorded as an illegal absentee, had in fact been strangled and his unidentified body buried in the Old Cairo War Cemetery. No one linked him with the unidentified body at the time and it was the

Army’s acceptance last year – that he was that person – that proved his case. Confirmation of the error led to the 5th Battalion AIF veteran being posthumously honoured at the Balnarring and District Anzac Day service on 25 April. “This represents the culmination of a great deal of effort from researchers, family and agencies from around the world,” Mr Chester said. “It is a wonderful occasion to rectify the record on a true hero of Gallipoli on Anzac Day 2018.” RAN Commander and Officer-inCharge Matthew Keogh, who was in charge of the Balnarring and District Anzac Day service, said the presentation was a “huge honour for us at Bal-

narring”. Private Attfield’s great-niece Beverley Warren was presented with newly struck medals and an official death certificate – honours denied to the family causing much grief 102 years ago. At the same time, in Egypt, the Australian Ambassador Neil Hawkins unveiled a new headstone on Private Attfield’s grave presented by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. On it, the family chose to include the inscription: “I once was lost, but now am found” to honour the soldier who had previously served twice at Gallipoli. Private Attfield did not seem the type to desert. His great-great niece


Gayle Cowan said he had tried seven times to enlist and had been wounded twice and suffered dysentery before returning to his unit at the front. In trying to prove his case, she said the mystified family showed the army letters he had written home only days before he disappeared which portrayed him, at 24, as a disciplined soldier with property in South Yarra who gave no hint of deserting. The official condemnation of his illegal absence had hit the family hard, she said: Family members received no medals, family pension or otherwise, and could not attend Anzac Day commemorations because they felt “out of place”. The family had no sense of closure

as a body, officially, had not been found and he was presumed to be on the run. Probate on his will was not granted until 10 years later and his father was said to have died of a “broken heart”. “They didn’t talk of his supposed desertion because they did not believe it,” Ms Cowan said. It was not until August 2017 that the army’s identification board accepted evidence from Unrecovered War Casualties—Army and concluded that there was sufficient evidence to confirm that the body in the grave was that of Private Attfield. “Thankfully, there’s been a happy ending – even after 102 years,” Ms Cowan said.

Cole said the Mornington Peninsula’s “unique environment - pristine waters, clean air, rich soil and diverse micro-climate – nurtures an abundance of fine produce, which encourages my clarity of purpose to achieve my dreams, and inspires my vision and creativity, to stretch the boundaries of my craft”. Cole said he had set his sights on being a chef when he was 10. His career is a “lifestyle choice and a passion that lies deep Within” approached with the philosophy that

Celebrating the Arts at Wallaroo THE students of Wallaroo Primary School will celebrate this year’s Education Week with an emphasis on ‘Celebrating the arts’. It is a great way to celebrate our students’ successes in the arts and to continue to build their confidence and passion in this creative area. Student engagement in the arts can help improve educational outcomes by boosting motivation and creativity, building leadership skills, cooperation and collaboration as well as forging friendships and a sense of belonging. To promote the arts,

our students participate in two music lessons and an art lesson each week. Minister for Education James Merlino recently said, “In education, as in life, the arts provide an important balance. We know kids thrive intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically when studying the arts.” Accordingly, Wallaroo Primary School recognises the broad need to construct a school curriculum that is stimulating and engaging for students of all ages and stages of their intellectual and emotional development.

Our teachers encourage a teamapproach to learning, especially in the visual arts where hands-on experiences can combine with relevant emotional and intellectual learning stages, critical reasoning and problem solving. Wallaroo Primary School has many fun activities planned throughout the week. This includes the continuation of the mosaic tiling of our ‘Friendship Couches’ displayed at the front of our school. Our second project includes the completion of our values action figures sculptures,

inspired by the Commonwealth games. These figures will be displayed in our gardens on totem poles and will feature handprints of our students and their families Finally, we invite all our families to attend our Mara! Music Incursion, which will take place on Friday 25th May from 1:50pm – 3:00pm. Wallaroo Primary School implements a School Wide Positive Behaviour Support Framework, which focuses on aligning our school values, Be Safe, Be Your Best and Be Respectful, with explicit teaching

of behaviours and expectations. Our values sit at the forefront of all our teaching and are embedded within our arts program. Prep Enrolment We have opened the enrolment process for 2019 prep students. If you are looking to enrol your child and would like more information about what we can offer your child or a tour of our grounds and facilities, please contact us on 5979 2654.

Devilbend Ambassadors

As part of our drug and health education this term we are having the Life Education mobile learning centre visit our school. Life Education has been visiting our school for many years and is always a highlight of the children’s year, and helps to facilitate the development of the life skills in students to prevent and minimise the harm of drug misuse. Lessons are always age appropriate and the children cover a wide range of drug and health related topics, ranging from the human body and how it works, healthy eating and nutrition, medicines and drugs, bullying, resilience and social skills Healthy Harold, the much loved Life Education giraffe mascot is always a much anticipated element of the Life Education visit. The sessions are always fun, interactive and really extend and develop the children’s understanding of the topics covered. We also further these topics in class both prior to and after the Life Education visit with the student workbook.

Mad About Science As part of our Science curriculum, we have organised a special Science incursion for our school. We have the Mad About Science team organised to visit and work with our students. Our Foundation to Grade 6 students will be working on a program called Chemistry Chaos, which will extend their understandings in this area of Science.

Children are taught about road and bike safety while riding as well as gaining confidence, with many coming

Circus OZ The focus for Education Week 2018 is Performing Arts. As part of Tyabb Railway Station Primary School’s celebration of Education Week, we have been extremely fortunate to secure a visit from Circus Oz. In the workshop, students will be able to learn and participate in a number of circus tricks and performances. Manipulation skills such as juggling and hula hoops; balancing skills such as tight wire and rola bola; aerial skills as well as floor skills such as tumbling and acro-balance. We are looking forward to this fabulous opportunity and we may discover many hidden talents!

Gymnastics Our Sporting Schools Program this term will see our Foundation to Grade 3 students participating in a 4 week gymnastics program held at Mornington Gymnastics The gymnastics program ensures children can experience a wide range of movement activities We will be using beams, trampolines, climbing frames, foam pit, bars, soft floors and large trampolines. The program will be very active and fun. It enhances co-ordination, agility, body awareness and balance, develops positive and confident body movement including the ability to land safely, enhances creativity and builds selfconfidence for sport and life, creates healthy minds and bodies for now and later life and contributes to their general health and fitness.

The Flying Bookworm Company To further develop and encourage our interest in reading and Performing Arts, our Foundation and Year 1 students will be having a visit from the Flying Bookworm Theatre Company. The performers will act out 3 of our favourite children’s stories. This live theatrical performance is full of energy laughs and builds upon children’s literacy skills. We have invited Tyabb Preschool to join us in being a part of this fun activity.

In 2017 we established the Devilbend Ambassador Program in affiliation with the Devilbend Foundation Inc. Students apply to be ambassadors and the four chosen students attend Devilbend Natural Features Reserve twice each term. Students participate in activities including Clean Up Australia Day, collecting and identifying macro invertebrates, birdwatching and participating in the Frog Census – recording frog calls and identifying which species they’ve recorded. Tyabb Railway Station Primary School would like to thank the Devilbend Foundation Inc. for their assistance in setting up and supporting this initiative.

98.7 Radio Show Each Monday RPP FM run a radio show between 11.00am and 12.00 noon called Kids Hour. Our school secured a position on RPP’s roster in 2017. We host the show six times a year. Each show gives three of our senior students the opportunity to co-host the show with Geordie, one of our staff members discussing all the great things we do at Tyabb Railway Station Primary School. We thank RPP FM for giving our students this great opportunity.

STEM Program In 2017 we made the decision to purchase two 3D printers for our growing STEM lab. Using a 3D printer ignites the imagination of students as they can use design software to create toys/objects/decorations/jewellery (there is no limit really!) and watch their designs come to life! The senior grades have already taken part in facilitating the printing of a 3D dragon, a fidget spinner and some Christmas decorations to hang on the school office Christmas tree. Through use of our 3D printers we are able to engage the children in topics such as engineering design, computer aided drafting and 3D modelling. This ensures that at Tyabb Railway Station Primary School our students are being prepared for the jobs of the future!

DAVEYS BAY DELIGHT IN AN ENCHANTING GARDEN SETTING PRIVATELY set in a tightly held enclave near Daveys Bay, this John Lockwood designed home was built by Fasham Homes in 1998. An extension, also designed by John Lockwood, was added in 2005 to create a study and an upstairs room with deck. From the end of a quiet court you enter the property through eye-catching, hand crafted, granite stone pillars that flank an aggregate paved driveway framed on each side by Golden Elms. Ultimately emerging in an expansive parking bay in front of a double garage, the driveway weaves past low-profile dry rock walls, an ornamental pond and a splendid array of Manchurian pear trees and english box hedges. A tiled pathway leads to the welcoming front foor and wide formal entry, where to the right is a bedroom with built-in robe and a home office that both share the main bathroom with sunken spa bath and twin vanity. The light-filled central living zone features Italian tiles and incorporates a comfortable lounge that enjoys a gas log-effect heater, a spacious dining area adjoins the kitchen and a lovely casual meals space affords a fantastic outlook to the magnificent gardens. The kitchen features granite bench tops, there is plenty of storage space and a range of quality appliances include a rangehood, stainless-steel dishwasher and an electric oven with gas and electric hot plates. A short hallway leads through to a second bedroom and a cosy sitting area with the master bedroom featuring his and hers walkin wardrobes and a large ensuite with spa bath. A versatile upstairs recreation room has excellent views and the wide deck has a retractable shade awning. The glorious full-length patio has a splendid northerly aspect and the view down through the trees is sensational. Full use has been made of the splendid 2864 square metre block with several outbuildings - a detatched double garage with workshop, power and loft is brilliant - and five large rain water tanks ably serve the gardens and lawns which infuse this wonderful property with indescribable beauty and a magical secret garden ambience.n

Dromana College offers a range of Visual Arts subjects to students in their senior years of schooling. VCE Media, Studio Arts and Visual Communication have all achieved outstanding VCE results.

STEAM at Hastings Primary School A welcoming learning community where all are valued

INSPIRING our students to explore and develop their independence as learners, has been fundamental in developing and implementing our STEAM curriculum at Hastings Primary School. An integrated approach in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM) not only provides students with opportunities to practise vital communication skills, but ‘switches them on’ to learning within purposeful and real life contexts. With fantastic resources and access to current technologies, the students at Hastings Primary School have a range of exciting opportunities to enhance their learning; through the use of Coding devices and programs, BeeBots, Probots and Lego Robotics applications, integrated with classroom laptops and touch screen devices, providing the vital ‘hands on’ inquiry approach Our senior students have been fully immersed in the STEAM program, inspiring them to become curious and creative thinkers. They have become more confident when taking risks and now see ‘failing’ as part of the improvement stage of their learning process, building both resilience and persistence skills into their developmental journey. Developing further skills in Robotics, through our close links with Western Port Secondary

College, during a five-week program, the Year five students are encouraged to collaborate, cooperate and communicate, in order to solve problems. Currently working on the design and production of a periscope, students are encouraged to use their knowledge of angles and light refraction to make their own 3D prototype During a recent experience of Light and Colour investigations one student commented on their love of learning new and exciting things in a fun and visual way, as it helped them to make sense of the world they live in. With future jobs requiring skills and knowledge in the ever changing world of Science and Technology, Hastings Primary School is building firm foundations for student success and opening the eyes of young future industry leaders, through our inspiring and engaging STEAM curriculum. During Education Week, on Thursday 24th May, Hastings P.S. will be holding a STEAM EXPO, between 9:00am and 10:30am, in all classrooms from Foundation – Year 6. Visitors are welcome to come along and see our exciting science and technology learning on display, with our Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea to follow at 10:45pm.

Mornington soldiers make ultimate sacrifice Compiled by Brodie Cowburn IN the 401st casualty list published on Monday appears the name of a Peninsula soldier who has made the supreme sacrifice - Private H. S. Clarke, of Mornington. In the same list, Corporal W. J. Stewart, of Carrum, is reported wounded. *** MRS John Holley of Heath Rise nursery, Mornington Junction has just received word from the Defence Records that her 4th son, Private John Holley, of 8th Batallion has been killed in action in France. Deceased enlisted early in 1916 and has been in most of the principal engagements since that time. Colonel Hawker has forwarded a letter of sympathy to the family of the deceased. Private Holley was well known in the Mornington Junction district and is a fine type of an Australian. He will be much missed by his sorrowing relatives. *** THE man Biggs, who was recently arrested in Frankston by Constable E. C. Ryan, and charged with assaulting a woman and a little girl, and who was remanded for medical observation, has been declared insane, and is now an inmate of an asylum. *** MR. S. M. Bruce, the new member for Flinders, recently elected to fill the vacancy created by the retirement of the Chief Justice, Sir William Irvine, took his seat in the House of Representatives, on Wednesday. He was accompanied to the table by Sir Robert Best (V.) and Mr. Sampson (V.) to take the oath, and was greeted by Ministerialists with cheers. *** A PAINFUL accident befell Mr James Wells, wood merchant, of Frankston, on Monday last. Mr Wells was feeding large logs to a circular saw, and owing to the wood being damp and muddy through the recent rains, one of the largest logs slipped and fell on to Mr Wells’ left hand, which was then resting on another log. As a result the finger was burst open, the nail torn away, and the bone splintered. The injured hand is being treated by Dr Atkinson, who has hopes of saving the mutilated finger. *** A PROCLAMATION issued by the State Executive last week makes it an offence for fishermen to dig for worms and other bait within 30 feet of the foreshore. The new law, which will become portion in the port regulations, provides in effect that no person shall damage or in any way interfere with the foreshore or any sheeting, stone aprons, groynes, breakwater, or other works constructed for the protection and

preservation of the foreshore of Port Phillip, and no persons shall search for worms or bait or make any excavation within 30ft. of the foreshore. A reward of £2 is offered for information that will lead to the conviction of offenders of the law. *** A PUBLIC meeting was held in the Frankston Mechanics Institute on Friday evening last, called by Cr W. J. Oates for the purpose of getting an expression of opinion from the residents along the Melbourne Road as to the suitability of that road being used as an Honor Avenue in honor of the boys who had enlisted from Frankston and district. After considerable discussion it was unanimously agreed to adhere to the original plan of having the Avenue on the Melbourne Road, and it was decided to recommend to the committee that a neat fence be erected instead of tree guards as at first intended. *** AS the status of the Frankston Police Station has been raised, Senior Constable Bray has been placed in charge. Pending his transfer to Mortlake as constable in charge of that station, Constable E. C. Ryan, who was formerly in charge at Frankston, will remain here as mounted trooper. During his term of service in Frankston, Constable Ryan has not only performed the onerous duties of police constable conscientiously and well, but he also been a worthy citizen and took an active interest in affairs likely to benefit the town. By his ready advice and practical sympathy he made many friends and though they are pleased his transfer to Mortlake means promotion they feel that they are losing an officer and citizen whose place it will be hard to fill. *** A SOCIAL will be given by the members of the “Know it all” club in the Langwarrin Recreation hall, on Thursday next, May 30th. A good programme will be provided, and a record house is expected. *** ATTENTION is directed to the advertisement appearing in another column of Mr A. C. Hauland, of Chelsea, who has a large stock of building materials, timber, tanks, etc, which he is prepared to supply at Melbourne prices. *** CR. J. Dobson-Hesp, J.P., Hon. Secretary of the Hobart branch of the Overseas club, and well known in newspaper circles in Southern Tasmania, together with Mrs DobsonHesp, paid a flying visit to the district, and spent the week end at Frankston. *** ACTING under instructions from Mr Max Kippe, Messrs Brody and Mason will conduct a clearing sale on the premises, Cem-

etery road, Hastings, today, when horses, cattle, vehicles, farm implements etc, will be offered. *** ADVOCATES and opponents of the proposal to sever Carrum Downs from Cranbourne shire and annex it to Frankston shire argued their cause at a deputation to the Minister of Public Works on Tuesday. The petitioners for the severance contended that Seaford and Carrum stations, which were in Frankston shire, were the natural outlets for produce from Carrum Downs, and much nearer their farms than Cranbourne or Dandenong stations. Frankston shire was willing to take in Carrum Downs, but would not improve the roads to Seaford and Carrum stations for the benefit of the petitioners unless the annexation was brought about. Carrum shire protested against the proposal on the ground that the petitioners represented neither a majority in acreage nor valuation in Carrum Downs. Mr Robinson promised to reflect on the matter and advise the petitioners in due course of his decision. *** DEATH has again visited the town, and widespread regret is felt at the death of Mrs Harry Shepherd who passed away on Tuesday morning. Mrs Shepherd had been suffering from heart trouble for some months. She was the daughter of Mr and Mrs E. Sage, of Somerville, and she leaves a husband and three young children to mourn their loss. The funeral took place on Wednesday afternoon, at the Frankston cemetery and was largely attended. Great sympathy is expressed for her bereaved relatives. *** MR Thos. S. Biggs, son of Mr Biggs, of Somerville, has enlisted, and gone into camp. *** THE annual meeting in connection with the Gymnastic Club was held on Monday last, and it was decided to continue with the exercises again this winter. There are a fair number of lads in the district who are all under the eligible age who will, no doubt avail themselves of the oppportunity of this class of physical training, which is also a very interesting pass time for the winter evenings. One or of two of the lads proclaim themselves real acrobats, and no doubt later on the members will provide some splendid items for the local concerts. *** BROOCH - LOST in Frankston Train, between Hawksburn and Toorak, Diamond Sapphire Brooch Ring Canter bury 128. - Good Reward. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 25 May 1918

Skipping the Light Fantastic By Stuart McCullough I WAS never any good at it. Whether it was the pressure or the fact I never, ever practiced is hard to say. But every time it was my turn, I succeeded only in messing things up. Swiftly eliminated, I had to watch as everyone else continued on and wait for the next round at which point I would mess up a second time. It was a shame – I was always doing my very best. It’s just that my best was a long way short of below average. Skipping rope was something that happened over lunch in primary school. The rope was so long, it needed two people to operate it. It would turn and people would line up before, one at a time, running into the middle, jumping over the rope and running over to the other side. The more proficient students might add a little flair by spinning around, clicking their heels or knitting a small jumper mid-jump. I, however, was always just hanging on for grim life. It can’t just have been me. Granted, my limbs were so chronically uncoordinated that they refused to speak to each other, and my sense of timing was a source of on-going embarrassment for my swatch, but there were surely other factors at play. For starters, my sneakers were probably holding me back. My sneakers were hopeless for sneaking and not much better for walking, with velcro instead of laces. My trousers weren’t much use either – brown corduroy that rubbed when I walked, making a ‘vfffft’ sound every time I took a step.

It would happen in the quadrangle. It strikes me as odd, now, that so many parts of primary schools are named after shapes. The quadrangle. The oval. It lacks imagination, I think. At our school, the quadrangle was made of asphalt and brutally unforgiving. It was not somewhere you’d want to fall over, which made it even stranger that this was where we were expected to undertake all kinds

of sporting activities. As if grazed knees were some of kind of KPI. Back then, I doubt there was ever a week that went by when my knees weren’t grazed. Skipping rope was an activity that demanded a lot of real estate. Inevitably, other activities made way to accommodate the rope jumpers and this goes some way to explaining why so many people ultimately joined in.

At first, the rope would turn slowly. It was one of those activities where the intensity is ratcheted up the more it goes on. But it always started gently in the expectation that those playing could easily get across. And it was for most people. But I wasn’t most people. I’d over-think it. Rather than rely on raw animal instinct, I would become hypnotized by the rhythm of the rope. My head would bob up and down as I stared, trying to intimidate it and desperately hoping it might surrender first. It never did. One of the features of skipping rope was how long you waited before venturing out to the middle. Mostly kids would follow each other in quick succession. I, however, would wait for a perfect moment that would seemingly never arrive. Whether I was waiting for the wind to die down or the tides to come in, I’m not sure. I suspect I was trying to defer failure, even if for a moment. The rope would keep turning and I would stand ready to run into the middle. After a few of my fellow students encouraged me by telling me to ‘hurry up’, I picked my moment. After standing as still as a statue for several interminable minutes, I now launched myself across the quadrangle at a frightening speed. Vfft, vfft, vfft, vfft! – my cords would generate not only sound but heat also. So much so that I wouldn’t have been surprised had smoke started to emerge. Having reached the middle, my sneakers would propel me upwards as I leapt for glory.

I’d open my eyes to find my feet firmly on the ground and the rope lying lifeless in front of me. I had failed to get through and was now eliminated. I then had to suffer the ignominy of watching everyone else as they got through with ease. Only as others fell foul of the rope could I expect to have some company. The rope would get faster and faster until, eventually, there was only one person left standing. The were other variations. These included the use of two skipping ropes at once in a technique known as ‘double dutch’. It was aptly named for I might as well have been wearing clogs, such was the depth of my ineptitude. The fact I couldn’t speak the language probably didn’t help. It was like trying to weave your way through a gigantic cake beater. I was lucky if I even got anywhere near the middle before one or both skipping ropes bounced off the side of my leg. Lunch breaks at work are never used to skip rope, despite the fact that the car park would be ideal. I do, however, have a skipping rope. It’s shorter than the ones back in primary school – enough for one person at a time. Weirdly, I skip a couple of times a week. Maybe I’m better at it now than I was then. I certainly wear cords less often and it’s been ages since my shoes had Velcro. Having perfected my technique in the years since, the only thing left to do is seek a rematch. I’d better hop to it.

MPNFL Sharks outclassed in tough interleague battle INTERLEAGUE

By Brodie Cowburn WITH regular MPNFL football put on hold for the week, the 2018 AFL Community Championships brought together the best and brightest from the league to take on the Northern Football Netball League at Preston City Oval this Saturday. The men’s interleague competition, being played a little closer to home than the AFL’s match in Shanghai played at the same time, saw the MPNFL and NFNL face off in a third vs. fourth place clash, with the winner set to take on top ranked Eastern Football League in 2019 for the right to be recognised as the number one Victorian competition. The MPNFL Sharks side were led by captain Warwick Miller of the Mornington Football Club, and were coached by former Mornington coach Chris Holcombe. The Sharks were set to face a tough challenge from their NFNL opponents, who had named a strong defensive lineup that could cause MPNFL a lot of problems. The match began in good conditions, with no rain or wind interrupting the game. Within five minutes, it was the MPNFL who had landed the first blow, with Sam Fox kicking his set shot from 50 metres truly to open an early lead within five minutes. The first quarter fight back from NFNL was incredibly sloppy, and although they had the run of play for the majority of the quarter, they could only manage seven straight behinds and no goals up to quarter time. In the meantime, MPNFL looked clinical, with Billy Quigley and Luke Hewitt scoring majors before the first break, the latter being an easy end to end goal that resembled more of a training drill than a competitive interleague match. At the quarter time break, MPNFL held a comfortable 3.3 (21) to 0.7 (7) lead. After the first break, the NFNL finally kicked their first goal through Patrick Fitzgerald, before quickly scoring another to bring the margin down to one point. A much improved and significantly more motivated NFNL side kicked continued to kick on, establishing a ten point

Picture: Andrew Hurst lead before Luke Hewitt again kicked truly to bring his MPNFL side back into it. With the hosts having blitzed the second quarter with six more scoring shots than MPNFL, the Sharks could count themselves lucky to have only been one goal behind at half time. After the main break, things went from bad to worse for the MPNFL men, with NFNL’s Patrick Fitzgerald kicking his second and third goal for the game within the first 15 minutes of play. Despite struggling to keep up with their opponents after quarter time, MPNFL still went into the threequarter time break with a sliver of

hope, only trailing by 13 points, with the score being 5.7 (37) to 6.14 (50) After the final break, the NFNL found another gear and blew the MPNFL Sharks out of the water. A big mark from Patrick Fitzgerald, who was among the best players on the day, and a goal within two minutes set the tone, as NFNL went on to score seven unanswered goal and put MPNFL to the sword. Having only scored two goals since the first quarter, the MPNFL had been toothless. In a moment that summed up the afternoon, NFNL’s Reid Brandt capitalised on a shocking turnover from

a simple MPNFL kick out to make certain that MPNFL would not come back, slotting home coolly from 25 metres out and putting his side comfortably ahead. The MPNFL players were not on the same wavelength, and were outclassed easily by NFNL. The match came alive at the death with NFNL’s Ryan Stone hit by MPNFL’s Michael Debenham behind the play with 10 minutes remaining, sparking a melee between both sides late in the game. As the two sides brawled, play on was called and Jordan Perry hammered home another goal for NFNL.

MPNFL could do little to stem the flow, and the final score reflected an incredibly disappointing performance by the Sharks, with the game finishing 7.7 (49) to 12.17 (89) MPNFL’s Lachie Batten was awarded the best on ground medal for his side, and Chris Holcombe addressed the result with grace. “Northern really put us to the sword in that last quarter, they were really fantastic today, so congratulations. We got run over in the end and lacked skills by foot, but we’ll come back harder,” he said in his post match presentation.

Mornington and Seaford women star in historic representative game WOMEN’S INTERLEAGUE

By Brodie Cowburn AN historic match took place as the curtain raiser match at Preston City Oval on Saturday, as the Women’s Northern Football Netball League and the South Eastern Women’s Football League both played their first ever matches of representative interleague football. The first ever SEWF League side featured representatives from Mornington in Emily Rylance, Riley Cridland, Vicki Sanford, and Georgia Speedy. Jess Johnston, Jess Adams, and Sarah Astone were selected from Seaford. The side, led by Cranbourne’s Emily Wallace, struggled early, conceding within two minutes as NFNL’s Ashleigh Bayes made her mark by scoring the league’s first goal in representative football with a scrappy effort from the goal square. The SEWF League side struggled in the first quarter, with the NFNL women consistently rebounding every time SEWF tried to clear their defensive lines. After a difficult start, Chloe Hunt eventually stood tall to kick SEWF’s first for the game just before quarter time. After the first break Hunt

used strong hands again to take a mark and put away her second of the match. Hunt’s second quarter effort was the only goal for the quarter, and both teams found themselves neck and neck at half time with the scores 2.4 (16) to 1.6 (12). As the second half began, SEWF’s Olivia Aing continued to prove a massive influence on the game through the midfield, driving her side forward and creating dangerous opportunities for the forwards. Early in the second half it was SEWF that had the upper hand, with Sarah Astone taking a spectacular one handed grab and converting easily to put her side 10 points ahead of their NFNL opponents. Despite their positive start, NFNL hit back with two goals through Tara Chetcuti and Cassie Hurst, which put their side in front for the first time since the two minute mark of the first quarter. Hurst’s goal, which gave her side the advantage, just barely scraped through past outreached fingers on the goal line. At three-quarter time, it was set up for a thrilling finish, with nothing separating either side at the final break.

As the final quarter got underway, Chloe Hunt again struck for SEWF, scoring her third to put her side ahead with an easy finish from the goal square. With time ticking away, controversy struck after Seaford’s Jess Adams was caught holding the ball after a heavy tackle, in which she was left groggy after hitting her head into the ground. The resulting free kick saw Cassie Hurst put NFNL level with just eight minutes to play. As time wound down, NFNL were relentless in attack, but SEWF’s lose player in defence consistently intercepted and rebounded to eliminate the danger. Olivia Aing was manic in the dying moments, diving to get the ball off of the ground, but still the two sides remained deadlocked as time ticked down. In the closing seconds, controversy again struck with the last kick of the game. A long ball forward to a one on one contest inside the NFNL forward fifty saw SEWF’s Riley Cridland and NFNL’s Linda Thorp both get hands on the ball, with neither letting go as they appeared to mark simultaneously. The umpire made the call that Cridland had got first hands on the football, and paid the mark to the defender.

WIth that decision, there was no time left for any more action in regulation time, with the final siren sounding with scores equal at 4.6 (30) to 4.6 (30). With the game now set to go to two extra time periods of five minutes, SEWF would have to compete a woman down with Adams ruled out for the remainder of the game. After a frantic, scrappy, and scoreless first half of extra time, it was Chloe Hunt who again stood tall to take a huge mark in the second period of time on. While she could only score a behind, it didn’t matter, as her point was the final score of the game. With SEWF locking down the ball expertly to kill off any chance of an NFNL attack, the siren sounded and finally the South Eastern Women’s Football League side secured the history making win, 4.6 (30) to 4.7 (31). Olivia Aing was named the best on ground for the day, and coach Megan Snart commended her women on a gutsy performance. “Both team fought hard and it was very competitive over four quarters. Both leagues were represented well and it was a great spectacle,” she said in her post match presentation. Western Port News 22 May 2018

Paterson resigns, king Kuol rules SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie PENINSULA Strikers’ senior coach Jamie Paterson resigned last Wednesday morning and assistant coach Lenny Greenan has been appointed in a caretaker capacity. Paterson’s decision took the State 2 South-East club by surprise but president Trevor Johnston is hopeful that a decision on who will take charge of the senior squad till the end of the season will be made in the next fortnight. “We are actively looking at candidates and we will exhaust every avenue to find someone who can hit the ground running and take on a rebuilding phase for the club,” Johnston said. “We want someone who has good contacts and who can bring some players in and we’ll see how things pan out in the next week or two.” On Saturday Strikers lost 5-0 to Doveton at Waratah Reserve. Former Dandenong Thunder keeper Nathan Prince made his last appearance for Strikers and was deputising for Ash Kupre who was getting married. Oscar Knight made his debut for the Centenary Park outfit and the former Caulfield Cobras winger could be joined by two more signings this week. Langwarrin’s impressive NPL2 campaign continued with a 3-1 home win over Melbourne City on Saturday after a stunning second-half display by John Kuol. The former Dandenong Thunder and Morwell Pegasus striker terrorised the young City defence with pace and guile and his two goals proved decisive. Both sides went into the contest undermanned with Langy missing suspended Andy McLean and injured trio Luke Burgess, Liam Baxter and Boris Ovcin. City had seven players unavailable due to PFA rules enforcing a four-week period of annual leave. Langy’s makeshift striker Mat Luak opened the scoring in the 26th minute when he pounced on a defensive blunder, dummied a defender then struck a low shot across City keeper Daniel Smith and into the far corner. Less than two minutes later the visitors hit back when Yusuf Ahmed got clear and nudged the ball home with the Langy defence in disarray. In the 43rd minute, City should have taken the lead after a mazy run from Luke Duzel but his shot was blocked. The second half was barely a minute old when Kuol pounced on a poor defensive header to expertly volley past Smith to make it 2-1.

Celebration time: Langwarrin striker John Kuol head over heels after his successful penalty conversion. Picture: John Punshon Langy was the team creating chances now and it took a fine reaction save from Smith to deny a Sam Klepac header. Kuol should have finished in the 62nd minute from a long ball downfield by keeper Robbie Acs which was headed on over the City defence by Paul Speed but Kuol skied his attempt when well positioned. In the 75th minute, a Callum Goulding chip to the right of the area was headed back across goal by Klepac and Andy McIntyre’s header was spectacularly tipped over by Smith. The contest was effectively put out of City’s reach in the 83rd minute. Kuol made a stunning run down the left surging into the area before being brought down and referee Lazaros Pantelidis pointed to the spot and sent off defender Delibor Markovic. Kuol competently tucked away his penalty attempt and that was that. Langy reaches the halfway point of a 28-game NPL season after it hosts Brunswick City next weekend and another three points would place it in a strong position to achieve its aim of consolidating its status in the elite competition. Langy’s under-20s won 2-0 with goals to Nick Simmons and Tuach Ter, a recent acquisition from Springvale White Eagles. In State 1 South-East news an injury-time strike from Wayne Gordon

allowed Mornington to continue its climb up the table with a hard-fought 1-0 home win over Warragul United on Saturday. Defender Jack Truelove took a quick free-kick launching a long ball over a static Warragul defence and Gordon made no mistake in a dramatic finale. Mornington’s English import Sam Reeves has joined Casey Comets while Scottish import Alexander White has signed for Doveton. Frankston Pines lost 1-0 away to Mooroolbark in Saturday night’s State 2 South-East clash with Maxim Solovyev deciding the issue in the second half. State 3 South-East outfit Skye United continued its push for top spot with an important 2-0 home win over fellow title contender Bayside Argonauts on Saturday. Skye’s star striker Caleb Nicholes was out with a neck injury and the pivotal moment in the contest came in the 62nd minute when Bayside defender Max Murray was sent off for a foul on Skye striker Mitch Blake. Chris Driver saw the resultant freekick hit the wall, but the ball fell to Daniel Attard who finished well into the bottom right from just inside the box. It was all one-way traffic after that and Blake put the icing on the cake in the 80th minute as he broke through


into a one-on-one and made no mistake. Fellow State 3 South-East outfit Seaford was thumped 7-0 by BoroondaraCarey Eagles last weekend and has now leaked 35 goals in eight games with the added burden of a minus 29 goal difference. Baxter farewelled club stalwart Werner John in style by hammering Harrisfield Hurricanes 5-1 at Baxter Park in Saturday’s State 4 South fixture. John is relocating to South Australia and is a much-loved figure at the club. Baxter led 1-0 at half-time after a long throw by Jake Kidder was headed home by Stuart Mckenzie in the 34th minute. Two minutes into the second half a stunning long-range strike from Liam Kilner made it 2-0 and in the 66th minute former Baxter player Edin Ali was red carded after a reckless lunge inside the area at Ben Meiklem who had to be stretchered off. Owen Kilner converted the resultant penalty to make it 3-0. Alan Lipsett made it 4-0 in the 82nd minute when he finished Matt Morgan’s through ball and two minutes later Travis Ernsdoerfer made it 5-0 thanks to Kidder’s through ball. Harrisfield’s sole response came from Michael Romas in the 88th minute. Baxter under-10s coach Billy McLeod is taking his squad to Canberra in

Previous participating teams have hailed from Australia, USA, England, Denmark, Italy, Russia, Georgia, South Africa, South Korea, Chinese Taipei, Malaysia, Philippines, India, Indonesia, East Timor, Fiji and New Zealand. In State 5 South news a stunning second-half display earned Somerville Eagles a 6-2 away win over Endeavour Hills Fire. Kamil Gajownik put the home team ahead in the 11th minute but the Eagles levelled straight away when playercoach Dave Greening forced a good save from Fire keeper Stuart Tolmie only for the rebound to strike a defender and go in. Endeavour restored the lead in the 28th minute thanks to a superb longrange strike by Kenny Huggett but Louis Griffiths equalised two minutes before the interval with an instinctive header from a Greening cross. Eagles captain Joel Wade succumbed to injury and was replaced at half-time but the second half was all about Greening as the ace predator ran riot and ended up with four goals. The pick of the bunch was his third, a 25-metre screamer after good work by Matt Curd. It was a record fourth straight win for Somerville and leaves the side level with Rowville at the top of the table. In NPLW news local consortium Southern United lost 10-0 away to Alamein on Sunday.

Peninsula surfers take on national champs By Ben Triandafillou THE WOMEN’S Peninsula Surfriders have recorded the club’s best finish in their first attempt at the Sailor Jerry Surftag Australian Championships on Friday 27 April. After taking out the qualifiers at Rye Back Beach last month, the women headed to the national championships for their first time at Duranbah Beach on the Gold Coast and finished up in seventh position. Peninsula Surfriders club president Lachy McDonald said they unfortunately headed up to the nationals not at full strength but couldn’t be happier with the end result. “To be competing at the nationals is something that we are quite proud of so we went up there even though we weren’t at full strength,” he said. “We only had two of the girls from the qualifiers travel up there but a few past club members who were up on the Gold Coast filled in which was great to see. “It definitely would have helped that they were experienced in those conditions.” This year’s women’s competition was the first time that it had a “true national women’s final” as it previously used to only have Queensland and New South Wales competing. It couldn’t have gotten underway in better conditions though as McDonald said it was the “best they’ve ever had” for the championships. The men also sent a team up to the nationals after qualifying in second position with Ron Gorringe making an appearance in the over-30s role as McDonald had to stay back due to work commitments. While the men finished in 22nd position on the ladder, McDonald said it was an achievement in itself to make it to the nationals and get a team together to compete. Snapper Rocks (96.46) finished 18.45 point clear of second-placed Elouera (78.01) to take out the men’s division. While D’Bah Boardriders (67.16) won their fourth straight Sailor Jerry Surftag Australian title in the women’s division and in doing so have become the most successful team in Surftag history. Peninsula Surfriders are set to run their second aggregate surfing competition in the coming weeks with Supergroms re-commencing after the Easter break. Crystal clear: Peninsula Surfriders club champion Adam Morris competes at national championships in perfect conditions. Picture: Supplied

The annual char-

ity day has now raised more than $455,000 for the charity over the last four decades. The Rosebud Country Club will hold one more charity event in the next month, the Mermet MND (Motor Neurone Disease) Cup – Suominen & Hodges Trophy, to acknowledge two of their golfing members Rauno Suominen and Rob Hodges who are unfortunately fighting the disease. The event will be open to all golf members at the club as well as visitors on Saturday 9 June.
