CHILDCARE SHOWS CARE AND RESPECT

A southside early childhood centre
was swept in a sea of blue last week
to raise awareness of a cancer that
has touched the close-knit
Bonython s Stepping Stones
Child Care celebrated a blue-
themed day on Thursday, July 3 to
raise money and awareness of
ovarian cancer, which recently
claimed the life of a colleague and
friend who had worked at the
centre for more than a decade.
Educators and pupils donned
their best blue attire -- the colour
symbolising the cause -- and dived
into a number of blue-themed
activities including painting, play
doh and slime as part of the
fundraiser. Blue cupcakes and
yoghurt kept tummies full while
aqua balloons enhanced the
excitement throughout the centre.
Aside from collecting gold coin
donations, Oorama Education has
donated $2000 to Ovarian Cancer
Bonython centre director Louise
Doolin said the event was in
memory of chef Sam Barratt, who
had cooked at the centre for more
than 10 years.
She knew every child off by
heart, every dietary requirement
and anything they liked and didn t
like, she said.
It was very sad, very sudden
and I guess for most of us, we were
very unaware what the symptoms
of ovarian cancer were. I guess
that s another reason we should
have today -- to get the message
out. Mrs Doolin said educators
and pupils had an age-appropriate
chat about people becoming sick.
Despite the sad news the day was
full of smiles and generosity --
much like Ms Barratt. Although
it s a sad occasion, a reflective
occasion, it s also quite a happy
occasion for the children, Mrs
Doolin said. They love dressing
up -- many of them think it s their

New pavilion plan boost for Tuggeranong sporting clubs
Fund-raising and functions will
have a permanent home at Green-
way Oval thanks to a new pavilion.
The $232,500 facility will
replace a canvas marquee currently
located near the grandstand.
Tuggeranong Hawks and
Tuggeranong Gridiron are
expected to have access to the
finished building by March next
year, after using temporary facilit-
ies for more than five years.
The simple design for the one-
storey pavilion -- consisting of a
96-square-metre viewing and func-
tion room, a 25-square-metre meet-
ing room, a kitchenette and internal
toilets -- is outlined in a develop-
ment application lodged with the
ACT Planning and Land Authority.
Sportsgrounds, Maintenance and
Improvements manager Brian
Ashcroft said the existing structure
"The canvas structure has poor
weather-proofing, no power or
water, and was only ever seen as a
stop gap measure," he said.
Mr Ashcroft said the new facility
would accommodate up to 100
Minister for Sport Andrew Barr
said it was a pre-election commit-
ment and designed in consultation
