5 Apr 2015 - Daylight Saving Time Ends
When local daylight time is about to reach
Sunday, 5 April 2015, 3:00:00 AM
clocks are turned backward 1 hour to
Sunday, 5 April 2015, 2:00:00 AM
local standard time instead
Sunrise and sunset will be about 1 hour earlier on 5 Apr 2015 than the
day before. There will be more light in the morning.
Change Your Clock, Change Your Smoke Alarm Battery!
At the end of daylight saving in each year, change your smoke alarm
battery with a long life battery when you change your clock. House
fires occur more frequently during the winter months, and making sure
you go in to winter with a working smoke alarm makes good sense.
If you have a hard-wired smoke alarm, these still have a battery as a
back up and the battery needs to be changed as well.
Find the Your Home Fire Safety brochure in the Fire Safety page of the
Smoke alarms don't last forever
Smoke alarms have a lifespan of about 10 years. After that, you should
Most smoke alarms have a use-by date printed on them. If your alarm is
still beeping after you have changed its battery, it should be replaced
with a photo-electric model.
Old smoke alarms can be safely thrown out with household rubbish.
Scotland Island Kindy News
Hi from Scotland Island and Offshore Children’s
Kindy has been blessed with some great donations this year,
A Massive thank you to
John Morgan for his generous donation, we were able to buy a
very cool light box along with amazing equipment to go with it, . the
Light Box has been an amazing learning tool, extending many interests
in a variety of ways. We used it to light up our tadpoles as we studied
them and have bought many other resources. The transparent coloured
blocks develop our understanding of mixing primary colour in to
secondary colours, it is a daily resource we use that the children are
drawn to throughout the day. We also bought some frog specimens to
study, as we are currently watching some tadpoles grow in to frogs, and
some grate fine motor and craft supplies.
Another huge thanks goes
to the Cardiff family for their train track and train donations
they are used every day and the children love them. We have even given
Tuesday morning the nick name, Train Track Tuesday, where the whole
group and some parents get right in to making the “biggest bestest”
train track. Train Tracks are a great way for the children (and Adults)
to extend their problem solving skills, matching the track up, with the
correct pieces, making them go the right way, even crossing other
tracks can be quiet tricky. It is always a great social and active part
of our construction corner.
THANK YOU BOTH, SO MUCH!!
The Kindy is in need of timber.
Mainly 4x4s and ply, anything over 1 meter in length, If you have any
leftover timber that is just sitting there, we could put it to good use
making shelving for our outdoor equipment.
We are also after outdoor house paint, preferably white and or grey to
give our cubby house a modern look.
Pick up can be arranged but drop off at the kindy would be Amazing.
We are using the Timber on Sunday the
12th April for our
All working bees
There is heaps to do in
the garden, painting and some construction.
Please email the kindy, or call or text Bec with any donations you
If your children are growing out of their books or we would love them
to add to our library. Being a community run service we depend a lot on
toy and resource donations. If you are planning to pass on or even sell
your better condition books and toys, we may be interested and would
love to know about it.
Items we are looking for
- Plastic toy kitchen
- Old kitchen equipment, even spoons are great to
extend their dramatic play.
- Even A4 and or A3 scrap Paper
- Architect Paper is awesome!!
- Cardboard boxes
Kindy News, Our Program.
We have had such a great year so far, we have some new staff members,
(all studying or qualified). Our Numbers are building and we have such
a great time with the children. So far this year we have been focusing
on many of the children’s interests the predominant projects would be,
- Learning about our Island, Boats- Types and there
purpose, Sinking floating, and our adventures getting an home or
to the mainland
- Colours, not just the basic, learning about all the
colours and shades and what happens when we mix them
- Indigenous Australians- after the children made some
observations about the dream time story, ‘how the birds got their
colour’ (the colours they use, and how they might paint) we explored
indigenous art, and dream time stories
- Our native birds- we have been studying the many
birds that come to visit, drawing them, researching them, and observing
them when they come to visit, often when we eat afternoon tea. Its
great, not many services have that
- Cooking- Making bread from scratch, discovering sweet
and savoury and our senses
- Tadpoles-we have watched about 20 small tadpoles grow
into frogs, it has been the best fun and we are all learning. Did you
know that when a tadpole grows his legs he needs to breathe air with
his newly formed lungs?? We have researched our frog species and
discovered that we have the Striped mash frog, native to our area. We
have realised the fully grown frogs into a protected pond we made for
our frog friends.
We are lucky to have booked in Henny Penny Eggs to come to our service.
The Eggs arrive April 20th, with an incubator. We watch the baby chick
hatch and care for the chicks studying them as they grow. It is a great
learning opportunity for the children and can lead to many more
learning interests, the more likely, animals that lay eggs, caring for
‘almost helpless’ chicks, Easter theme, Cycles of life, types of Eggs,
feathers birds, Flight and so much more.
Feel free to pop in with your children (before 9 or after 3:30) to see
the chicks and what we are learning.
All the chicks will be up for adoption if you are thinking of buying
chickens. I believe they can be sexed before you commit..
We are always wanting community involvement, if you have any experience
or profession that you could pass on to our growing minds we would love
to hear from you.
Committee Members Needed
The Scotland Island kindy is part of the fabric of the off-shore
community and has been in operation through thick and thin for over 25
It is currently undergoing an exciting phase of re-development with a
new Director, new staff, a new committee and some inspiring and fresh
ideas to help bring it into the future. The kindy is a community
concern and relies heavily on strong cooperation from the local
The Kindy’s Management Committee is currently in need of some more
members. You don’t have to have children attending the kindy to be on
the Committee, in fact not having children there would make you a
valuable and unbiased Committee Member.
Do you have a particular skill that could be of use to the kindy? Are
you a retired educator with a myriad of valuable information and
knowledge that would benefit the kindy? Perhaps you have a life skill
or an occupational skill which may be advantageous to the kindy.
Committee meetings are held monthly and typically last for 2 hours.
Please contact the Director Rebecca Tringham to express your interest

Scotland Island 2015
Against Yamba Development
30 MARCH 2015
Pittwater offshore residents unite against
billionaire's planned resort
More than 70 Scotland Island residents gathered on the beach on the
weekend at the iconic Yamba Estate to protest against a highly
controversial commercial development on Scotland Island.
The proposal claims to be a new dwelling but closer inspection clearly
demonstrates its integration with the existing property at Yamba. The
resulting 14 bedroom resort, corporate retreat or training facility, as
it has been variously described, is to be used for short-term stays by
“This is not a family home, this is not residential. It is a commercial
development and clearly does not meet Council’s E3 zoning guidelines,’
said Scotland Island resident and Yamba neighbour Chris Goold. “These
guidelines include a requirement to provide for low density,
residential development in keeping with the land form and not visually
prominent. It does none of these.”
With more than 15 formal letters of objection already lodged with the
Pittwater Council, and another 35 to be delivered, yesterday’s protest
of leading community members sends a clear message to Council members
that this development application is completely unacceptable and should
not be allowed to proceed.
“Scotland Island is an Environmental Management Zone with only
residential accommodation allowed. This building is termed variously as
a resort, corporate retreat and training facility and will be occupied
by different people all the time that will come for short stays and go.
They will not care about or be a part of the community, ” said
Western foreshore resident, Jennifer Knox who addressed the group.
“Apart from residential status, local residents are particularly
concerned about the size, bulk, scale and design. The towering
three-storey frontage, dwarfs the turn of the century Yamba homestead.
The new building will have floor space more than 750 square metres, is
not sympathetic to the landform, not low density and definitely would
be visually prominent across Pittwater. The building is too large for
the site but they are asking for exemption based on architectural
Ms Knox also confirmed many residents’ concerns about the wastewater
and wastewater management plan.
“How will this site possibly deal with the waste water of so many
visitors?” Not only is the Wastewater management Report based on
a variety of optimistic assumptions, its main dispersal site is a 25
metre long trench that approaches within 10 metres of the
foreshore. Foreshore soils are not suitable for absorption and
leakage of effluent into Pittwater is highly likely.
“The residence is subject to a development application that is being
processed by Council under delegated authority. It is a clever
application that is set up in the guise of a single dwelling however
very clearly is a commercial development. The residents are urging
council to not just assess the DA in terms of point by point compliance
and variation, but to look at the big picture here. It has the
potential of another Currawong-like reaction and, if approved, it sets
a very disturbing precedence for all of Pittwater,” Ms Knox said.

Yamba Picnic thank you..
Thank you for your enthusiastic attendance at the Yamba picnic on
Sunday to demonstrate you're strong objection to the current
It was great to see you all take time to attend from busy schedules.
Over 70 people attended which is a great turnout for a small community.
Being the closest neighbours who are spear-heading this campaign, we
much appreciate your support to protect this special place we all live
in. We need to stop any commercial style of development that
would have a detrimental effect on all of us, if this development is
approved in its current form or similar.
We will continue to keep you informed and assure you, we are working
hard to stop this unsuitable commercial development in our unique

$1000 for the Reading Room project in the village of Soibada, East
Pittwater Council’s General Manager praised the library for the
fundraising initiative, saying it benefited the community of Soibada by
providing access to books, which are in very short supply.
“Once the Reading Room is established, it will provide a repository for
the books which will be purchased in the appropriate language (Tetun
and Portugese). These books will be cared for by a member of
staff – who will open the room at specified hours, allowing access from
villagers of all ages.
“Pittwater Council is pleased to part of the Reading Room initiative”
added Mr Ferguson.
The movie nights, scheduled between now and June celebrate the life and
work of Robin Williams.

Retirement Gap Year - Adapting to Retirement
by Dr. Frances Black
Book Launch Invitation
This is a baby-boomer
book, a non-fiction, memoir involving a journey which resulted in
unexpected personal growth and helped the author adapt to retirement.
Dr Frances Black's "retirement gap year" was in a sense, a gift from
her 29-year-old son, who decided buy a yacht in Germany and sail it
back home to Australia. Not as keen as her husband for extended sailing
time on their son's yacht, she formulated a plan to live in Spain and
learn Spanish. As problems surfaced, she found she had to abandon her
well-laid plans and find new ones. She discovered her unusual journey
helped her gain new skills, which she hopes will help her adapt to her
new phase in life. The book is based on a blog she kept during this
She is a retired general practitioner, who has written extensively for
both the medical and lay media.
