Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : August 13 2008
20 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, August 14, 2008 NEWS www.innerwestweekly.com.au BRIEFLY Schools get together STUDENTS from seven high schools in Sydney, including Strathfield Girls, participated in an innovative interschool educational program on Wednesday. Together for Humanity Foundation have successfully delivered the program to schools around Australia, which is designed to promote respect and understanding between students of different ethnic and religious backgrounds at an early age. Email email@example.com Men's Shed in the works STRATHFIELD is closer to having its very own Men's Shed which will provide a workshop for the community including senior citizens and people with disabilities. Strathfield Council identified the vacant workshop at 28 Pomeroy St, Homebush as the most suitable site due to its layout and its ability to house the required machinery needed for a fully functional workshop. The council is proposing to enter into a 12-month licence agreement for use of the sheltered workshop next to the old Homebush Bowling Club. Student exam workshops YEAR 11 students are invited by Alpha Omega Education to attend HSC and free Year 11 preliminary exam workshops at Burwood, presented by expert authors and teachers, from August 15 to 31. Alpha Omega Education conducts free community-based workshops and motivational seminars across NSW to help students prepare for academic milestones and to achieve their full potential in their yearly exams. For details and registration visit www.hscplus.com.au or call 9708 3666. Record year for Salvos THE Salvation Army's Red Shield Appeal has raised a record $71 million this year, despite the difficult economic times. Communications director Major Brad Halse said: ''These funds are desperately needed. With higher interest rates, food costs and petrol prices, many are struggling to make ends meet.'' He said the Salvos found that Australians tended to give more, not less, when they were doing it tough financially. Bathroom cash for kindy ST Andrews Kindergarten in Abbotsford received a $4500 cheque from the State Government to install a new bathroom. Community Services Minister Kevin Greene and Drummoyne MP Angela D'Amore were there to present the cheque to staff and students from the community-based preschool recently. St Andrews Kindergarten works with about 30 children every week aged between three and six to help prepare children for school. Mr Greene said almost $30 million was allocated from DoCS to improve preschool access for children.

Fresh funds help with respite ParaQuad chief executive officer Max Bosotti, MAA's Carmel Donnelly, resident Neville Knight, minister Kristina Keneally, MP Barbara Perry and ParaQuad chairwoman Wendy Potter. ~P0608748 A LIDCOMBE complex that sup- ports people with spinal cord injuries has received $3 million from the State Government. The funding will be used to redevelop Ferguson Lodge, a ParaQuad NSW-managed com- plex providing permanent and short-term respite accommo- dation for people with para- plegia and quadriplegia. Disability Services Minister Kristina Keneally said the latest funding was on top of $2.5 million already allocated by the government. ''The new complex will pro- vide more modern and special- ised accommodation for 24 people with high-care needs and 16 people who are able to live more independently,'' she said. ''Short-term respite beds are also available to people with a spinal cord injury to give them a change from their normal rou- tine or should their carer be unable to care for them.'' The complex has remained almost unchanged since open- ing in 1979 in the grounds of the former Lidcombe Hospital. The NSW Motor Accidents Authority has also committed $5 million to the project.
