5 Minutes with Juan Carlos Loyola OAM Director of Doveton Special Soccer School The Doveton Special Soccer School was started in 1993 by Endeavour Hills resident, Mr Juan Carlos Loyola (Carlos) and gives young people with a disability an opportunity to learn to play soccer – and join a wonderful community. A former international level player and coach, whom, after arriving in Australia in 1977, and working with people with disabilities, identified the need for sport for disabled children. Not deterred, despite having limited English skills, with his wife Christina, he set up the club and it has gone on to have an enormous impact on the south east Melbourne community, helping hundreds of local children and their families. “Players with disabilities don't play for money or fame, they play for personal achievement and love of the sport. When you start working with these people, you fall in love with them, the satisfaction just to see the happiness and the smiles in the players, this is the reward. I feel my duty is to keep going in this community.” Carlos tries hard to give the players every possible opportunity – ensuring soccer is a space where players are not being limited by, or feel judged by the challenges of their disabilities. The club plays interstate games as well as many games in regional Victoria. 100% volunteer run, the club has regular recreational trips to different locations, and recently returned from China. The school also has a proud history of success in sport - with 19 of its players in the past 7 years representing Australia across the world. “I'm more aware now of the necessity of sport for all these people. We are not prepared in sport, in accommodation, in work, in transport. All these four things, they are the strong issues that people with a disability face at the moment.” Carlos has received many awards and accolades over the years including the City of Greater Dandenong's non-citizen of the year in 1999 and City of Casey's volunteer of the year in 2001. Most notably, he received a Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) in the 2009 Australia Day honours, and a nomination for Australian of the Year in 2014. Please contact Carlos for further information – for prospective players, and if you can offer funding or assistance: Email: soccercoach2@hotmail.com - Phone: 0414 393 700 Home ground address: 29 Brindley Street, Dandenong South

5 Minutes with Glory Kids Childcare This month, we met with Sandra, owner, director and lead educator of Glory Kids Childcare and Kindergarten, Narre Warren. Tucked away amongst the Narre Warren Village, Glory Kids, runs a comprehensive educational program; including science, drama, art and music. They first opened the doors in 2011, and since then has provided first class early education in a safe, nurturing space for hundreds of local children. “We recognize that the values and opinions of families and the wider community are important and believe by working together we will encourage children to understand, respect and care for themselves and the environment as well as be accepting of cultural diversity in our community. We aim to support the family unit and work in partnership based on respect.� The boutique centre has 8 dedicated staff and prides itself on its inclusive, multi-cultural program. There are 4 indoor spaces, each providing age specific care and education, and a huge shared outdoor space. Fresh, nutritious meals are provided (prepared onsite). Nappies are provided too! This beautiful centre is definitely worth considering for all families who are looking for a boutique, caring service, with a focus of dual educational and inclusion. Being so close to Narre Warren train station and shops, it is ideal for commuting parents, and those that work near (or drive past) Fountain Gate Shopping Centre. To arrange your personalised tour, contact Sandra/Shirley on 8774 0605. 4 Rebound Court, Narre Warren - 7:00am – 6:30pm, Monday to Friday
