With the end of Term 4 fast approaching, most students are looking forward to Christmas and summer holidays!

I have really enjoyed the last couple of weeks visiting some of my residents and hearing their wonderful stories.
Warren and Joan Dorling recently celebrated their 60th Wedding Anniversary. Having lived in Warradale since their wedding day, I loved hearing about how they started dating and stayed together over the last 60 years.Read more

If you haven't had an opportunity to use the new Oaklands Railway Station recently, I encourage everyone to pop down, have a look and catch a train (or two!). The Station looks fantastic, it is bright and airy and is a first class addition to our community.
The landscaping works are also progressing well with a range of native trees, shrubs and ground covers planted along all four access points to the station.Read more

Each year I have the honour of presenting Community Recognition Awards to deserving people in our community whose work tends to go under the radar. These people work tirelessly to improve and serve our local area but are often not formally recognised. It is often the lesser known efforts that make the biggest difference to the lives of others. Knowing this, I established these Community Recognition Awards to seek out those people and acknowledge how much their work is appreciated.Read more
