QUEANBEYAN ART SOCIETY
Life member hangs up her calculator
The Queanbeyan Art Society
treasurer to fill the shoes of
long-standing incumbent Pam
Padovan by April 2015.
The Wanniassa artist began
as a committee member in
1997 and was a volunteer for
many years, most recently
helping to digitalise the
memberships and plan the
upcoming yearly calendar of
As a life member of the
society, Ms Padovan will
continue to contribute and
hang art in the Queanbeyan
gallery but hopes that vacating
her volunteer role would
enable others to give it a go.
"I think you can get stale
when you have people on a
committee for too long," she
"I think new ideas are
always important and it's time
for someone new to take it on."
As a partner in Bungendore
Fine Art, the 69-year-old said
that involvement in the arts
community was a means to
keep engaged and creative.
I truly believe art keeps
people out of hospitals and
doctors rooms,'' she said. We
have new members coming in
all the time.
There is a constant
membership now of 250 --
that's about double what it was
when I first began.''
Helping run the non-profit
art society had been fantastic
and contributed to Canberra
and Queanbeyan, she said.
The membership needs to
make an input and bring their
ideas forward for the next
chapter,'' she said.

ST GREGORY'S PRIMARY
Alexa Burns, Kimberlee Collins,Jesse Robinson-McEvoy, Kobie Verran and Dakota Berry
celebrate 100 days of kindy.
Happy 100 days marked
Beaming grins filled the playground as the
youngest St Gregory's primary students dressed
up to celebrate 100 days of kindy together.
Kindergarten grade teachers had baked
cupcakes for all 109 kindergarten students for
the event, which brought four classes from both
the Lowe St and Macquoid St campuses
"The children joined together and with their
100 cupcakes they made the number 100,"
Acting Assistant Principal Erin Taylor said.
"They also made 100-day hats, drew pictures of
what they might look like at 100 years old and
made wands to make their 100 days brighter."
Counting, such a big part of one's first year
at school, was not missed as students counted
aloud to 100 with parents watching on.
"It's been a tradition at St Gregory's to
celebrate 100 days of learning with the children
for more than a decade," Ms Taylor said.
"It's an important achievement for our
kindergarten children since embarking on their
journey at school at the beginning of the year."
Ms Taylor said the school had seen a rise in
the number of kindergarten enrolments and
planned to consolidate all year one and
kindergarten classes at the Lowe Street campus.
"It will make for a smoother transition
moving from infants to primary."
Study aims to boost police resilience
NSW Police will be the subjects of the first
Australian study into the psychological well-
being of police.
The three-year project by the Australian
Catholic University and University of Western
Sydney will survey NSW police and their family
to help prevent post traumatic stress disorder.
Data from the study of their responses in the
face of adversity is to be used to tailor training
and policy that maximises resilience.
This is about stopping them getting sick
rather than fixing them up when they do. We aim
to help officers become more resilient, assist
those already suffering PTSD to achieve better
mental health outcomes and allow us to better
help officers who have already disengaged,''
NSW Police Force Commissioner Andrew
