GETTING MORE KIDS IN WERRIBEE READY BEFORE SCHOOL

The Andrews Labor Government has launched a new campaign to highlight the importance of reading to children in the years before they start school as part of the annual Premiers’ Reading Challenge for the Early Years. Sharing books with your kids from the day they are born is a simple way to boost their literacy and numeracy skills, and improve their school results and future job prospects. Research shows that regular reading with young children from birth has a direct impact on their performance at school and cognitive skills later in life. The theme of this year’s Premiers’ Reading Challenge for the Early Years is ‘Share a Book Today’, in recognition of the positive impact simply sitting with a young child and opening a book can have. The Challenge encourages families and early childhood centres to help children who have not yet started school to experience 40 books before September. This year it will be accompanied by a digital campaign promoting the benefits that books have for young kids, including interviews with authors, ideas on great books to share and other helpful resources to help families with young kids. More than 8,000 children and families participated in last year’s Premiers’ Reading Challenge for the Early Years, reading more than 265,800 books. Member for Werribee Tim Pallas is encouraging parents to register pre-school children for the Premiers’ Reading Challenge for the Early Years online or at their childcare service. The 2017 Challenge closes 8 September, with over 2000 books on the early years booklist: www.education.vic.gov.au/about/events/prc/Pages/booklist.aspx Quotes attributable to Member for Werribee Tim Pallas “Sharing books with children is one of the most powerful things we can do to help build a child’s love of literature and reading.” “We want more Werribee families reading to their kids more often because we know how beneficial it is.” Quotes attributable to Minister for Families and Children Jenny Mikakos “We’re launching a new campaign as part of the Premiers’ Reading Challenge for the Early Years – so every parent knows the benefits of reading to their kids from day one.”

Werribee schools encouraged to enter sustainability awards

  Member for Werribee Tim Pallas is encouraging local schools to enter the 2017 ResourceSmart Schools Awards. “Run by Sustainability Victoria, the ResourceSmart Schools Awards recognise the great sustainability work being done by Victorian schools,” Mr Pallas said. “Schools are contributing to the long-term fight against climate change by undertaking activities in energy and waste reduction that will make them and local communities better.” There are 16 award categories. Each is designed to recognise a specific sustainable action. The categories for 2017 are: Biodiversity Energy Waste Water Community Leadership Teacher of the Year Student Action Team of the Year.   Two new categories include Leadership School of the Year and School of the Decade to celebrate the awards’ tenth anniversary. Last year Werribee Primary School were finalists in the awards for “Energy Primary School of the Year”. “It’s important to recognise the efforts of innovative school communities that play an active role in environmental improvements and climate change action,” Mr Pallas said. “Reducing energy consumption and the amount of waste we produce that goes to landfill are essential if we’re to reduce the impact of climate change.” “We want schools to work with the broader community and encourage everyone to recycle and buy from sustainable sources. Together we can make a difference.” The ResourceSmart Schools Awards will be announced in October. The awards are part of ResourceSmart Schools, an award-winning Victorian Government program that assists schools to embed sustainability in everything they do by minimising waste, saving energy and water, promoting biodiversity and taking action on climate change.

NEW WAYS TO SUPPORT VICTIMS OF FAMILY VIOLENCE IN WERRIBEE

The Andrews Labor Government is trialling new ways to provide intensive therapeutic support to women, children and their families experiencing family violence in Western Melbourne. Member for Werribee announced the Government is investing $2,216,278 to trial innovative ways to provide support to families as they recover from the trauma of family violence including in Western Melbourne. The Victorian Aboriginal Child Care Agency (VACCA)’s demonstration projects locate Culture, Connection and Healing as central to working with Aboriginal men, women, children and families impacted by family violence.  VACCA’s multi-site, multi-intervention approach includes one on one counselling for women, children and men impacted by family violence, therapeutic cultural healing groups with women, children and men, group behaviour change programs with adolescent offenders and therapeutic interventions with women in prison. Through the projects and in partnership with La Trobe University, MDAS, Elizabeth Morgan House, VAHS and in collaboration with Quantum, VACCA is further developing an evidence-informed basis for localised, culturally therapeutic responses while developing Aboriginal-informed approaches, resources and models. $22.87 million will go towards 26 projects across Victoria – four that specifically target Aboriginal people. The pilot projects will move away from a traditional model of crisis response to focusing on providing a therapeutic response for as long as survivors of family violence need. These new pilot projects support recommendations from the Royal Commission into Family Violence to prioritise funding for therapeutic interventions. The Labor Government is implementing all 227 of the Royal Commission’s recommendations. A record $1.9 billion package of measures to end family violence in Victoria was announced in the Victorian Budget 2017-18. This funding will be used to establish 17 support and safety hubs across the state, deliver after-hours crisis support, counselling and therapy for victims of family violence, and develop a 10-year industry plan. The Labor Government also recently announced the creation of Family Safety Victoria, the state’s first ever agency solely dedicated to delivering family violence reform. Quote attributable to Minister for Families and Children Jenny Mikakos “We are shifting the focus from a crisis response to one that allows women, children and families experiencing family violence to access therapeutic support for as long as they need it.” Quotes attributable to Member for Werribee Tim Pallas “We know the devastating impact family violence has on Western Melbourne – these pilot projects are an opportunity for us to keep learning about the impacts and to respond better.” “We are also delivering services that protect and support Aboriginal families from the impacts of family violence.”

TEN NEW PEAK TRAINS EVERY WEEK FOR THE WERRIBEE LINE

E The Andrews Labor Government will add 10 new Werribee line train services in the peak, every week – to get people in Melbourne’s west home safer and sooner. The extra services will be introduced as part of a new metropolitan train timetable, which will start on 27 August. A new morning peak service will run from Werribee to the city each weekday, and a new evening peak service will run from the city back to Werribee. The 10 new Werribee peak services build on the 10 new peak services added in 2015, and this year’s budget funded eight new off-peak services which will start next year. Direct city services for Altona Loop passengers will be fully restored in the August timetable, with the remaining 37 daily services that currently stop at Newport extended to and from the city. The change fulfils the Labor Government election commitment to fully restore the direct city services for Altona Loop passengers the former Liberal Government took away. The timetable change will also add 10 new peak services to the Craigieburn and Sunbury lines, and trains on the Hurstbridge line will be extended to provide more peak hour trains to more people in Melbourne’s north. The new train timetables will be available in July from ptv.vic.gov.au. Quotes attributable to Member for Werribee Tim Pallas “This is a big win for Werribee – with more trains, more often in the peak, when they are needed most.” “It’s part of our record investment in better public transport, to get people in Wyndham and across Victoria home safer and sooner.”
