Wanaaring Public School will receive funding to offer a preschool program by distance education.
Nanjing Night Net

NSW Minister for Early Childhood Education Leslie Williams has announced funding of $8800 for Wanaaring Public School to hire a school learning support officer who will act as a playgroup leader.

“The benefits of receiving an early childhood education are well known, and those children who have received this education have a strong start for their school years,” she said.

“I know the community has wanted a preschool program for some time, but have been unable to because the funding has not been available.

“I am pleased the NSW government has been able to find this funding because I know how much the extra support means to the community.” Member for Barwon Kevin Humphries said the funding for the preschool program for Wanaaring Public School was in addition to the support the NSW government was providing schools in rural and remote areas.

“The distance preschool program at Wanaaring Public School provides an invaluable service to children and their parents in some of the most remote parts of NSW,” he said.

“I am proud to be part of a government that supports students in the bush.”

TweetFacebookCURIOUS children were captivated as the secrets behind making paper planes were unveiled in a workshop with paper plane champion Dylan Parker.

Mr Parker, who is depicted in the film Paper Planes as Dylan Webber, led 50 Newcastle East Public School students through the theory of avionics on Friday before unveiling a range of simple designs to practise.

The school grounds were soon filled with hundreds of paper planes as the children mimicked Mr Parker’s designs.

‘‘Kids are so surprised that they can use a piece of paper and create something that can fly,’’ he said.

‘‘Some of the most amazing paper planes are the simple ones.’’

The workshop was part of the school’s focus to help students engage with science and address the declining interest in physics and chemistry in years 11 and 12.

Principal John Beach said the school had a strong science program that ‘‘made science relevant’’ and a range of activities would take place next week to mark National Science Week.

‘‘They had fun and the tips Dylan gave them to improve the flight of their planes were practical,’’ Mr Beach said.

Dylan and his business partner James Norton are touring schools across the country as The Paper Pilots to show children how to build paper planes.

VIDEO: CYMS’ strength will come from support

SEVEN DECADES OF HISTORY: Orange CYMS will bring up a massive milestone today, and (front, left) Toby Westcott, Kyran Bubb, Tim Mortimer, Hugh Gibson, (back, left) Ray Agland, John Sullivan, Mark Jasprizza, Tony Ford, Gavin Westcott, Mick Thornhill and Bill Kelly are looking forward to being part of it.

WHEN Bathurst St Pat’s run out on to Wade Park for today’s final round Group 10 blockbuster against Orange CYMS, they won’t just be taking on the 17 players wearing green and gold.

No, they’ll also be tackling 70 years of history.

The green and golds will celebrate seven decades as a club this weekend, with a massive crowd – from players in the club’s under 6 side through to old boys, most who have travelled big distances – expected to flock to the ground in a giant show of support for CYMS on a historic day.

And with question marks surrounding the fitness of player-coach Mick Sullivan, skipper Ben McAlpine and lock Tim Mortimer leading into the clash, there’s no better time for the support to be at its most vocal.

“I know a lot of the boys have been really looking forward to this day,” Sullivan said, the green and golds gunning for an 11th premier league title across 70 years this season.

“The guys really enjoy getting out there and playing in front of so many old boys and certainly the celebration afterward will be a lot better after a win.”

St Pat’s have been one of the form sides of the premiership over the last two months, reviving their premiership defence mid-way through the 2015 season and head into today’s clash with a six-game winning streak under their belt.

CYMS, on the other hand, have skidded somewhat since clinching the minor premiership.

Coming off a 22-20, last-minute loss to Mudgee last weekend is far from ideal, but Sullivan is confident the two-point defeat won’t dent his side’s claims at a run during this year’s finals series – and that essentially starts today against St Pat’s.

“I don’t think we lose any momentum out of it,” he said.

“They started like a rocket but our defence was outstanding and it was probably me who let them get some easy points when I threw that intercept.

“Like I said, I think we played pretty well and our effort was there.

“We won’t lose that in the space of a week.”

After this weekend’s final round, CYMS will enjoy the week off before hosting the major semi-final at Wade Park on August 30.

For St Pat’s, their future in the 2015 competition will be sudden death and Sullivan is predicting Kurt Hancock’s men to be near their best for today’s huge match.

“They’ll be desperate to get some momentum out of this clash,” he said.

CYMS play St Pat’s from 2.30pm.

Today’s fixtures begin with a CYMS junior clash from 9am at Wade Park.

ORANGE CYMS: 1 Tim Bassmann, 2 Wayne Collet, 3 Robbie Mortimer, 4 Ben McAlpine, 5 Semisi Katoa, 6 Matt Rose, 7 Michael Sullivan, 8 Cam Jones, 9 Sam Hill, 10 Simon Osborne, 11 Trent Rose, 12 Riley Law, 13 Kyran Bubb; 14 Scott Sullivan, 15 Logan Pocklington.

Coach gives Blue Jays a new goal to aim for

Nanjing Night Net

That goal has been achieved but now there’s a new target – winning the title.

The Blue Jays travel to Orange today to take on Ex-Services in an elimination minor semi-final and coach Craig Johnston has no doubt his side has what it takes to keep their season alive.

“I know there’s three or four players who won’t be back next year so this is our best opportunity to put ourselves forward,” he said.

“It’s great to see we’re the first Dubbo team, men or women, to make the semis and I really believe we can go all the way.

“We’ve got nothing to lose so we’re going to go out there, give it everything and see what happens.”

The Blue Jays finished the regular season fifth while Ex-Services was fourth, giving them home ground advantage.

Rather than any player’s influence on that match, Johnston believes it will be Orange’s home ground which will be the biggest hurdle between the Blue Jays and the next round.

“I think in the top five there’s not much between any of the sides and each side is capable of beating each other on the day,” he said.

“It changes a bit because their surface there is so different to everywhere else, if anything that will be the biggest factor.

“Bathurst, Lithgow and Dubbo have the water surfaces but Orange and Parkes have the hybrid so you’ve got to be switched on the whole time, the water surface is a bit more forgiving.”

The Blue Jays have been dealt a blow with star youngster Emma Corcoran away on representative duty but Exxies are in the same boat with Maddie Smith away also.

The makeup of the opposition may have been something which affected the young Blue Jays earlier in the season but Johnston has seen his side mature over the course of the season.

“The mentality has changed,” he said.

“At the start of the year the girls were worried about teams that were going to beat us but now we’re focused on our own game.”

The Blue Jays meet Ex-Services at 1.10pm today at the Orange Hockey Complex.

Local school program enabling young cricketers to become Thunder buddies

Nanjing Night Net

SCHOOL children across the Dubbo region will again have the chance to get closer than ever to their favourite Sydney Thunder players as part of the Thunder Local Hero Program.

The program gives Dubbo schools the opportunity to adopt a Sydney Thunder player for the summer and be part of the Thunder Nation for BBL05 starting in term 4.

The Local Hero concept is open to primary schools across NSW and the ACT and is a free initiative which aims to engage school children in stages 3 and 4.

Primary and secondary schools can register for the program, which has allowed 40,000 students to directly talk to their Local Hero through email, Skype and letters.

Captain Michael Hussey, along with Shane Watson, Usman Khawaja, Gurinder Sandhu, Pat Cummins, Aiden Blizzard and their Sydney Thunder team-mates, will be adopted by schools as part of the program.

Star Sydney Thunder batsman Aiden Blizzard visited the BBL04 winners Burrabadine Christian School this week and said the program provides a great opportunity for the players to give back to the club’s youngest supporters.

“Giving back to the community is something I’m very passionate about,” said Blizzard.

“I grew up in the country so the access I had to elite-level cricketers was quite minimal, so to be able to go out there and see these kids, I can just imagine if I was in their shoes it would’ve made my day.”

The big-hitting Thunder batsman says the Thunder Local Hero Program provides a humbling experience for his team.

“Getting to grassroots and getting out to the community is something I’ve really enjoyed in the past and something that blew me away going to the primary school this week,” said Blizzard

Lions have one last dig to end the season

THE Dubbo Lions will run out on to Pioneer Park for the final time this season today with mixed emotions.
Nanjing Night Net

On one hand, they have been delighted with their debut season in Premier League Hockey, recording three wins and four draws up to this point.

But their is also a hint of disappointment in the camp after a run of four successive losses saw them drop out of the top four and finals contention.

“We’re looking to end a relatively successful season on a high so we’re looking forward to it,” captain Matt Waters said in the lead up to today’s match with Bathurst City.

“I’d like to finish off by showing the local fans that we should have made the top four because of the way we play.

“A win would be ideal but we just want to click and look as good as we know we can.”

Bathurst City make the trek to Dubbo for the final round hopeful of finally breaking through for their first win of 2015.

They also had points deducted early in the season meaning they enter today’s match on -4 but Waters insists they can’t be taken lightly.

“We’ve got a bit of confidence but from all reports they’ve improved a lot over the course of the season so we go into the match with a bit of trepidation,” he said.

While still going out to claim victory today Waters said his side will be keen to relax on the field and put on a show for the Lions supporters.

“Everyone is definitely going out to have a bit of fun,” he said.

“While it doesn’t count towards finals we’re still taking it as a game we want to win.”

Waters said his side will be the same as recent weeks, still missing a few key players, but with 15 players expected to attend he said everyone will get a run.

The skipper added he was hopeful a big crowd would be on hand to see the Lions run around for one last time this season.

The action between Dubbo and Bathurst City gets under way at 3.30pm at Pioneer Park today.

Dining out ‘must wait’

THE installation of Langtree Avenue’s outdoor dining spaces has again been pushed back pending liquor licensing and council planning approval.
Nanjing Night Net

A parklet design for outdoor dining similar to the Langtree Avenue proposal.

Three popular “Feast Street” establishments – Dom’s, Mildura Brewery and Pizza Cafe at the Grand – last year applied to convert car parking spaces to dining spaces as part of a three-year trial by Mildura Rural City Council.

Announcing the plan almost a year ago, Deputy Mayor John Arnold said the street could be serving up alfresco dining on the “parklet” decking constructions by summer.

In December, he pushed the deadline to winter.

Traders in March estimated the parklets could be up and running by July, but now say they are again expecting a summer opening.

“Because the parklets are going to be made off-site, it’s a case of one minute they won’t be there, and the next minute they will,” Pizza Cafe owner Joseph Carrazzasaid.

“We would like them to be ready by spring, but we definitely want them to be here for summer.”

All three traders will need their liquor ­licences extended to encompass the outdoor dining spaces, which also requires the council to approve a planning permit.

While Dr Rob Zielinski will lead the trials, Stephen Millard will manage the team.

He relocated from Sydney where he was at the coalface of cancer trials at St George Hospital.

“The trials to be run here are the opportunity to put Orange on the map,” Mr Millard said.

Working alongside him will be newly-appointed clinical trials nurse Kerry Lenton, who has 30 years on nursing experience and several years in data management.

“I am really passionate about how we can better improve patient rates for trials in hospitals,” she said.

Also on the team is clinical trials co-ordinator Alison Coote, who was appointed by the Orange Health Service last year.

Mr Millard said he was thrilled to move to Orange to start the major trial work.

“I have been working on trials for a range of cancers and the wonderful thing about trials is that people are presented with new opportunities to try different medications,” he said.

“My aim is to offer these trials to patients as an alternative to having to go to Sydney.”

Legal saga continuesThis is so sad, and not right.

Bev N Peter DugganMy father lost his life to cancer (adenoid carcinoma ) two and a half years ago.

It was exactly 12 months and two days after his diagnosis that he passed away.

About five months into his treatment, that was never going to fix it, he said to myself and a nurse, when he had to decide on more treatment, “if I were a dog, you would put me to sleep, I wish I were a dog”.

I wish that he had the choice to go when he wanted to.

Sunderland stunning, but lead still elusive

A THIRD stage win from five starts wasn’t enough to lift Western Australian Scott Sunderland into the general classification lead as the Tour of the Great South Coast hit Victoria.
Nanjing Night Net

Sunderland backed up his victories in stages two and three–both in South Australia–by outsprinting his rivals to winstage five, a 92.9-kilometre road race from Heywood to Casterton on Friday.

COLOUR AND LIFE: The Tour of the Great South Coast field pedals along the roads of Portland during stage four on Friday. Picture: Con Chronis

The Budget Forklifts star held out Patrick Bevin (Avanti) and German Raphael Freienstein (Charter Mason).

The result continued an unlucky run forBevin, who has a trio of runner-up effortsandhas finished no lower than fourth but is yet to crack a win.

Earlier on Friday, KiwiBrad Evans (Pat’s Veg) took the honours in stage four, a 40km criterium around the Portland waterfront. He edged out Freienstein and another Charter Mason rider, Daniel Fitter.

The tworesults combined to lift Freienstein to the top of the general classification standings. He has a two-second advantage on Bevin with three stages to go.

Budget Forklifts team director Shaun McCarthy said he was rapt with how Sunderland, a London Olympian with hopes of representing Australia in the teams’ pursuit at Rio next year, had fared.

“Scott is from a track sprint background, he’s in a transition period to road cycling. We’re pretty happy with how he’s tracking,” he said.

“Today in paticular showed how far he’s come from last year. He raced a few National Road Series races last year and any time it went over any sort of incline, he was in difficulty.

“Today he seemed to get through no problem and was able to finish it off at the end.”

McCarthy said Budget Forklifts was working in tandem with Cycling Australia track endurance coach Tim Decker to get Sunderland to the Olympics.

“We were able to tie in what they wanted to do and what we wanted to do,” he said.“It’s been a good partnership between us and Cycling Australia and the guys personally, they’ve done a fantastic job.”

He believed the time bonuses for winning stages did not need increasing, despite the dominant riderbeing 31 seconds off the pace.

“If they want to fall in line with the way European racing runs, you can’t have 30 seconds up for grabs in a 36km crit. You could be on bunch time every day and finish the tour a minute down,” he said.

Freienstein, whohails from Kaiserslautern,is visiting Australia for the fifth time. He is hoping to improve on his best tour finish, third in 2014.

“We have some great young riders like Sam Crome, Ben Hill and Daniel Fitter in our team, so we will see what happens over the next two days,” he said.

The Tour of the Great South Coast continues on Saturday with a 40kmcriterium at Koroit and a 104.3km road race from Koroit to Peterborough, via the Great Ocean Road.

The National Road Series event wraps up with a 50km criterium at Port Fairy.
