Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : February 4th 2009
14 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, February 5, 2009 MB NEWS www.innerwestweekly.com.au Music dream's on track SHIREEN KHALIL Roshani Priddis is forging her career after Idol. Picture: PHIL BLATCH ~PP238313 FORMER Australian Idol contestant Roshani Priddis hasn't backed down from her music dream. The diva, who recently signed to William Management, is working on an Idol first with former contestant and good friend Luke Dickens. ''I'm working on a project for Easter like a collection of iconic Australian songs which pay tribute to Aussie singers,'' she said. Without giving away too much, Priddis said one of the songs would be a duet. ''The duet will be a song made famous by two Australian artists and we both grew up listening to them and we want to make the song fresh again, but it's a surprise so you just have to wait and see,'' Priddis said. The Ashfield singer said she got along well with Dickens on the show. ''Idols have never worked together before and it will be great as we are both from the country and I think it will be a good collaboration,'' she said. ''When we jammed it sounded so good and the idea of this Aussie covers album I thought would be a good start to working together.'' Priddis will give a sneak-peak perform- ance of songs that will feature on her debut EP at the Sandringham Hotel in Newton on Thursdays, February 19 and 26, from 8pm. Tickets cost $10. Priddis' long-term dream is to go back to Sri Lanka. ''My dream is to do a documentary on my journey going back to my homeland and possibly with my biological mother and experiencing Sri Lanka as a 21-year-old. I hope to do this in the next couple of years but firstly I want to establish my music career.'' Council OK for MLC's long walk SHIREEN KHALIL BURWOOD Council has agreed to allow MLC School to walk its entire primary school across four streets to a new building. The operation of escorting 284 students to their new campus in Park Rd twice a day started last week and MLC spokeswoman Pam Hatfield said everything had gone according to plan. ''It was fine -- the girls were very excited to get into their new school and they were all under way and settled by 10am,'' Ms Hatfield said. The school was only notified a week before Christmas that the building work wouldn't be com- pleted before the start of term. Cr Christine Donyare was the only councillor to vote against the proposal at last week's meeting. ''I understand that MLC had to deal with a very awkward situ- ation. . .butIdothinkthatMLC could have done more to notify residents in the surrounding streets as well as students' parents of the impact of these arrange- ments,'' she later said. ''While it is important to remem- ber that living near a school does sometimes become inconvenient, it is also important to remember that residents are the ones who have to deal with any traffic, safety and noise impacts.'' Mayor Lesley Furneaux-Cook apologised to residents and said she hoped the underground car park would be finished in the promised four to six weeks. www.napf.com.au DOVER ST. PARRAMATTA RD TEBBUTT ST.
