    Garage sale for Vanuatu relief on Saturday


    2019 - 06.21

    A student at the Pango Centre School library in Vanuatu before it was ruined by Cyclone Pam.CLEVELAND District State High school is organising a Monster Garage Sale on Saturday, May 16 to raise money for Vanuatu relief efforts.

    The fundraising event will be held in the Smith Street Community Hall and locals are encouraged to donate items for the sale.

    The school has close ties with Pango Village, a town close to Port Vila, and money raised will fund Cleveland High’s Vanuatu Library Project.

    Deputy principal Robyn Przewloka said her school had formed a strong bond with Pango Centre School for the past 10 years by helping build libraries and classrooms.

    “In addition to supporting our sister school community, our staff and students have built a kindergarten and resourced a number of kindergartens and school libraries in the area,” she said.

    She said that after the devastation of the cyclone, the school had been fundraising to help the people of Pango Village.

    “Our immediate concern is food and repairs to the school and kindergarten,” she said.

    The school’s chaplain, Neale Collier, was currently in Vanuatu and had arranged rebuilding with the funds raised so far.

    “He has also bought beans, cabbage, sweet potato, yams and roasted peanuts and has been delivering those items to families throughout the village,” she said.

    Mr Collier said now that immediate concerns of repairs and food relief were being relieved, it was time to concentrate on replacing the libraries that were lost in the cyclone.

    “A lack of literacy in the Pacific Islands is a major problem and Vanuatu is considered one of the worst,” he said.

    “Vanuatu has dedicated teachers, but poor teaching and learning resources.”

    He said the school dispatched a team to build libraries in three remote schools in Espiritu Santo in 2014.

    “The books have resulted in an immediate improvement in literacy, more enthusiasm for reading among children and resources for teachers,” he said.

    Items can be dropped off at Smith Street community hall on Friday, May 15 from 10am to 7pm, but larger items can be picked up by a volunteer.

    For more information or to have an item picked up, contact the school on 3824 9222 with your name, address and a brief description of the items to pick up.

    Nanjing Night Net

    The Red Shield doorknock campaign for 2015 aims to raise $74 million to aid its community works.

    The appeal was launched by Governor General Sir Peter Cosgrove on Friday at Rooty Hill RSL Club.

    Volunteers will come knocking on the weekend of May 30-31.

    Eat outside smoke-free

    Western Sydney Local Health District has reminded the community that all commercial outdoor dining areas in NSW will be smoke-free from July 6, under the Smoke-free Environment Act 2000.

    It means staff and patrons of hotels, clubs, restaurants and cafes will be able to work and dine outdoors without being exposed to harmful second-hand tobacco smoke.

    The health service is working with businesses to help them get ready for smoke-free outdoor dining.

    The legislation applies to all ignited smoking products, including cigarettes, cigars, pipes and water pipes.

    Chance to win Hi-5 visit

    Crime forum a success

    Greenway MP Michelle Rowland has thanked Quakers Hill police, the NRMA, Glenwood Community Association and Glenwood Community EyeWatch for taking part in a community crime prevention forum in Glenwood, attended by more than 60 residents.

    “Quakers Hill police was able to put things into perspective for local residents and confirmed crime was not spiking in the local area,” Ms Rowland said.

    “But the police stressed the importance of reporting crime when it occurs and in making sure residents knew the right number to call.

    “Triple-0 is for emergencies, the Police Assistance Line is for issues that aren’t urgent and the local area command can be called for all other issues.

    “Quakers Hill police also stressed the importance of locking doors and garages as a lot of break-ins are unforced.”

    Centre helps women

    The West Connect Domestic Violence Services support group — which funds the Jessie Street Centre in Rooty Hill — received a $2000 donation last week.

    The money was raised at the recent Coral McLean Awards, an annual event organised by Chifley federal MP Ed Husic.

    “The Jessie Street Centre assists local women through crisis accommodation, community outreach support and referrals to women with or without children,” Mr Husic said.

    “Not only does it give women a safe haven, but the centre offers a safe place to plan new lives.

    “It’s important to continue contributing to Jessie Street and ensure they are able to keep providing these vital services in our local area.”

    Call the 24-hour Domestic Violence Line on 1800 656 463 if you need support.

    Festival a fun day for families


    2019 - 06.21

    It’s back: Last year’s Riverstone Festival street parade. Picture: Helen NezdropaTHE final touches are being added to parade floats and final rehearsals are under way for the annual Riverstone Festival on Saturday.
    Nanjing Night Net

    “The festival is a promotion for Riverstone as well as a good, fun day,” festival committee president Phyllis McAlpine said.

    There will be performances on the main stage, rides, antique vehicles, an art show and the famous street parade at 11am.

    Entertainment includes performances by local singers, dance groups and school choirs.

    For those who enjoying shopping, there will jewellery, clothing and other stalls.

    Food choices range from German burgers and gozleme to poffertjes and the humble sausage sizzle.

    Mrs McAlpine said the festival began in 2000 to support the Riverstone Chamber of Commerce as part of Awakening 2000, an initiative for churches to spread the word of the Gospel.

    It had no parade and only 56 stalls.

    This year’s festival has more than 100 stalls.

    “The people of Riverstone feel like they own it,” she said.

    Organisers are hoping not to have a repeat of the 2003 festival, which had to be called off due to bad weather.

    Affordable homes plan for southern Sydney


    2019 - 05.21

    Helping with affordable housing: George Bakopoulos and Agnes Yi from St George Community Housing with site sub-foreman Lee Henderson at the Sutherland site. Picture: Jane DysonACCESS to affordable housing is such a major problem that it is have an effect on the rest of Australia’s social rankings.
    Nanjing Night Net

    The latest report from the respected Social Progress Index showed Australia was the 10th most socially advanced nation in the world but 19th for shelter and 51st for housing affordability.

    In Sutherland Shire — where million-dollar homes are the norm in some areas — the problem of affordable housing shows no sign of abating.

    Affordable housing is for workers on a low income who may not be eligible for social housing but are struggling to find a home in the private rental market.

    St George Community Housing has recognised the problem and has begun its first affordable housing development project.

    The 42-unit development site in Belmont Street, Sutherland, was chosen for its proximity to public transport.

    The rent on the units will be set at market price with eligible tenants paying 75 per cent and St George Community Housing paying 25 per cent, said spokeswoman Agnes Yi.

    Potential clients had to have an income of less than $45,000 to be eligible.

    “Sydney house prices are so high,” she said.

    From July 2013 to June 2014 the organisation received about 25 applications for affordable housing a month, with the amount jumping to 42 a month now.

    Ms Yi said that number was likely to increase again once the units reached their completion date.

    “Lots of working families are applying,” she said.

    Despite the 46 objections from neighbours, Ms Yi said Sutherland Shire Council had been supportive of the plan.

    Tour de Rocks 2015


    2019 - 05.21

    On the morning of April 9, 18 very enthusiastic Guyra bike riders headed out from Armidale on the three day Tour de Rocks annual bike ride. They were accompanied by six great support personnel.
    Nanjing Night Net

    The first day’s ride was amazing with morning tea stop at Wollomombi school and then up the mountains to Raspberry Flat where a great lunch was waiting.

    Then it was all downhill to the junction where the riders found their tents and bedding all prepared by the great support team.

    That night we were all entertained to the wee hours of the morning by the local cattle rummaging through our campsite.

    The next morning we were all eager to get on the bikes and start pedalling again. This was another beautiful day’s riding with lunch at Bellbrook and then onto Willarwarrin Showgrounds for the night.

    Entertainment here was supplied by the local band at the local pub across the road – a great experience.

    The next day it was an early start so we could get into South West Rocks by lunchtime.

    A highlight of the last day was Michael Kirk being awarded the GOOSE Jersey, for his attempt at trying to wipe out our whole team whilst we were riding in peleton on a busy road.

    The Guyra support team were also acknowledged for their outstanding work in helping with meals.

    In the week before the ride, members of the Tour de Rocks Board and Guyra team members Dave Mills and Jayden Gaddes visited Ben Lomond, Black Mountain and Bald Blair Schools to deliver the message of Be Fit, Be Healthy and have fun.

    The ride this year attracted 320 registrations, with 47% coming from Armidale. The ride was extremely well organized and everyone had a wonderful time.

    The money raised by this great event goes toward the objectives of the ride, which are to:

    -Raise funds for cancer research.

    -Increase the level of awareness in relation to cancer prevention through education and awareness programs, including healthy living programs, training programs and nutritional information.

    -Assist where we can through community programs to ease the burden for those engaged in the battle against cancer.

    The Guyra Tour de Rocks team would like to thank everyone who donated and helped them fundraise for this great event.

    Boston turn it on under lights


    2019 - 05.21

    WET WEATHER: Boston secured a massive win over Tasman’s during the seasons first Saturday night fixture at Ravendale.Port Lincoln football
    Nanjing Night Net

    Boston 21-22 def Tasman 4-5

    AT home by a log fire watching footy may have been a good place to be on a wet winter Saturday night but there was plenty of action at Ravendale on Saturday night.

    It was a dour, tight first quarter, and every supporter believed that under the windy and wet conditions this game would be a gigantic struggle.

    The Roosters kicked three of the four first quarter goals through Ben Daniels, Sam Clements and Dale Scharfe to the southern end, which was favoured by a two to three goal wind.

    Boston, through good work by ruckman Christian Dorward and running half back Michael Paech, hit the target of Tyler Franklin, who delivered lace out to the ever alert Dale Gericke to kick their first point of the game.

    While the Roosters were best on the scoreboard with 3-2 the Tigers showed plenty of tenacity in the hard ball contest in the conditions but wasted golden opportunities on goal by kicking another three points to go with a Dylan Dunn goal, the first of his six for the game.

    With the wind the Tigers showed the Roosters how it should be done by kicking eight unanswered goals, and with every one of those the Tiger supporters showed good voice.

    Christian Dorward dominated in the ruck while midfielder Ben Hurrell showed how to win either the loose or hard ball and bring the runners into the game.

    He was backed up by Jaykob Gooder, James Lakin, the all game toughness of Sunny Singh and Jarrad Christian, and of course the magician Malcolm Miller

    Dylan Dunn and the classy Dale Gericke went on to kick 13 of the of the Tigers’ 21 goals to the Roosters’ one loan goal through Ben Daniels over the last three quarters.

    From the start of the second quarter to the end of the third the Roosters could manage only two points, which truly amplified the authority the Tigers had over the Roosters.

    While Tasman listed eight under 21 players, don’t think for one moment that those numbers should take anything away from the Tigers who had six under 21 players – Harry Carslake, Jaykob Gooder, James Lakin, Jordan Mills, Jake Nicholls and Coen Taylor – who all played with tenacity when called.

    Tasman’s one loan goal by Ben Daniels had their supporters second guessing as to what went wrong with only one goal kicked in 84 minutes of play.

    The reality of this contest was all about the highlights of the game by the Tigers, but one must mention the effort of the Roosters’ Craig Reincke up the back. If not for his all game effort the Tigers may have kicked 30 goals.

    Rhys Kelsh in ruck never stopped giving and Luke Orbons’ back half clearances at times helped to stem the constant forward momentum.

    The Tigers kicked four, third quarter goals with two of the biggest goals for many a day when Dunn bombed back to back goals 60 metres out, and James Lakin and Aaron Castley joined the goal kicking list with one each.

    The Tiger supporters were rejoicing and shouted out they wanted more, even though their team led by 56 points, but the players obliged with another eight-goal quarter.

    The unselfish talent of Malcolm Miller was on show as he kicked two goals to finish with four, but was always looking for a player in a better position to finish off, and is credited with four assists.

    Dylan ”The Bomb’ Dunn unloaded another long shot and kicked six for the game.

    Then to top it off Sunny Singh, another Tiger favourite, took a contested mark outside the 50 and was urged on by the supporters to have a shot on goal; he obliged and the ball went straight over the goal umpire’s head and the Tiger chorus of cheers lifted once again.

    The Tiger supporters still wanted more and Harry Carslake, who had the best of his opposite number on the day, had pushed down to mark just outside the 50. The supporters and his team-mates told him to go for it and the ball sailed over the goal umpire’s head for the Tigers to kick their 21st goal.

    Schools celebrate


    2019 - 05.21

    Kyneton Primary students, Ruby, Tom, Tyson, Claire, Jayla and Hayden, hit the playground with Federal Bendigo MP, Lisa Chesters, and State Macedon MP, Mary-Anne Thomas, last Friday as the pair spruiked about the education funds in the State Budget.
    Nanjing Night Net

    Schools are celebrating the State Budget in Kyneton, Gisborne and Castlemaine in what is a “budget for families” according to Macedon MP, Mary-Anne Thomas.

    The Kyneton Primary School rebuild has its $8 million. This plus the $3.5 million given by the former State Government will fund the entire relocation, Ms Thomas said.

    There’s $5 million for Kyneton Secondary College trade and training facilities, and New Gisborne Primary School will receive a $500,000 art room upgrade to replace a building destroyed by fire in 2011.

    Castlemaine Secondary College is allocated an extra $2.5 million for its stage two upgrade and its engineering, chemistry and physics wing.

    Other initiatives set to impact the region include a mental health allocation of $24.9 million, a Climate Change Action Package valued at $12.1 million, $57.9 million for family violence actions, and $13.6 million for ambulance services.

    Funds are also secured for locally specific projects including the solar farm at Woodend’s Black Forest Timber Mill, the Calder Highway interchange at Ravenswood, and the Castlemaine Health elective surgery expansion.

    Nationals MP for Northern Victoria, Damian Drum, said locally the budget’s weight was in existing projects.

    “People of Kyneton and Castlemaine should be worried at the lack of new initiatives reflected in this budget. There is very little in the way of new ideas or plans,” he said.

    Find more detail on how the budget affects you in the Macedon Ranges and Mount Alexander in the current editions of theMacedon Ranges Guardianand theCastlemaine Mail.
