Jewel of Denial - School Production

With opening night on Wednesday, students from the Portland Secondary College are busily ironing out the wrinkles ahead of the debut of their latest stage show.Jewel of Denial is an original piece, fully directed and produced by the secondary college’s cast of 30 students from years 7-12.  Set on an ocean liner in 1948, the show revolves around the rumour that there are jewels of immeasurable wealth on board.With a cast of shady character aboard the liner, the ensuing scenes are a series of delightful comedic farces.A highlight of the show is the live vocal routine by the school choir, which will be performing a number of hits from the era, including ‘The Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy’ by The Andrews Sisters.The show will be held at the Portland Arts Centre, on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday (September 7-9) starting at 7.30pm.

Charity Fundraiser recognised with Award

A local community advocate has been recognised for her compassion and determination with the Glenelg Shire Youth Award for May.Georgina Meyrick-Garnier, 16, has been an active member of Relay For Life in Portland for more than 10 years, starting her journey fundraising as a preschooler.  She participated in the first Ankle Biters team, created to show support for Paul Beattie, and has been an active fundraiser in every year they have participated. Georgina even joined another local team to continue raising money for the event when the Ankle Biters could not participate. The quiet achiever works in the background volunteering her time, and though she is not usually one to be in the spotlight, that has changed recently. Eight months ago Georgina shaved her hair and raised $6689.95 for Relay For Life. In the time since she has raised awareness for cancer research and Relay For Life to the youth in the community through newspaper articles and school newsletters, public speaking at school assemblies and having everyday conversations with her peers across the entire shire.While being in the spotlight has often caused Georgina some challenges, she always kept the end goal in mind: raising money for cancer research, and educating and promoting Relay For Life in her local community.The best part of her public campaign comes in the form of positive feedback from a broad range of people in the community, including cancer sufferers and survivors.

• The Glenelg Youth Network aims to recognise the achievements of young people living in our community by offering monthly awards to those aged 12-25 who have demonstrated excellence within their peer group, contributed to the community and/or have been an inspirational role model.Anyone can nominate a young person, all you need to do is fill in the nomination form and submit it by 4pm on the last day of the month.For more information please contact the Glenelg Shire Council’s youth development team.

'Since Tuesday' wins

 

Youth four-piece band Since Tuesday are on cloud nine after winning the FReeZA Push Start regional heats earlier this month.Fresh off their finals appearance at the famous Star Search competition in Geelong, the four-piece acoustic band took out the Battle of the Bands in Hamilton on August 9, competing against nine other entrants from the region.

 

Speaking on behalf of the band, parent Angela Von Tunk said the band is elated with the outcome."It’s a great result for the band," Mrs Von Tunk said."They received some great critiques from the judges on their 20 minute set, which was one original and four covers."They now go onto the regional finals later in the year."She said in addition to a spot in the regional finals, Since Tuesday will headline the Spring Break Music Festival on September 17, a under-18s event run by FReeZA at the Hamilton Performing Arts Centre."It will be a busy day as they have an audition for Moyne’s Got Talent on the same day, so a performance in the morning in Moyne, and a gig later in the day in Hamilton," Mrs Von Tunk said.With two band members currently focused on year 12 exams, the band is keeping a low profile, before a series of shows during the summer break.
