'Since Tuesday' wins

 

Youth four-piece band Since Tuesday are on cloud nine after winning the FReeZA Push Start regional heats earlier this month.Fresh off their finals appearance at the famous Star Search competition in Geelong, the four-piece acoustic band took out the Battle of the Bands in Hamilton on August 9, competing against nine other entrants from the region.

 

Speaking on behalf of the band, parent Angela Von Tunk said the band is elated with the outcome."It’s a great result for the band," Mrs Von Tunk said."They received some great critiques from the judges on their 20 minute set, which was one original and four covers."They now go onto the regional finals later in the year."She said in addition to a spot in the regional finals, Since Tuesday will headline the Spring Break Music Festival on September 17, a under-18s event run by FReeZA at the Hamilton Performing Arts Centre."It will be a busy day as they have an audition for Moyne’s Got Talent on the same day, so a performance in the morning in Moyne, and a gig later in the day in Hamilton," Mrs Von Tunk said.With two band members currently focused on year 12 exams, the band is keeping a low profile, before a series of shows during the summer break.

Student Leaders clean up Portland beach

 

A group of 20 teenagers spent about six hours on Sunday cleaning up a section of beach at Discovery Bay near Bridgewater Lakes.The clean-up was initiated by three year 12 students from Portland Secondary College - Margy Doherty, Shae Smith and Claire Charman.Margy said the clean-up was organised because the beach was littered with rubbish."It’s our favourite beach, we go there on a regular basis and it was just becoming disgusting … beaches in Portland are kept tidier than this, so we decided to do something about it and 20 of our friends turned up to help," she said."We ended up with a trailer load of rubbish, mainly plastic bottles, some toothbrushes – items which have been thrown overboard from boats."The people at the Portland tip waived the fees for us when they heard what we had done, so that was really appreciated."Margy said another clean-up would be organised at the beach in the future."We’re hoping to get more people involved next time," she said.

Past Student, new fisheries officer for Portland

Fisheries Victoria has a new officer in Portland.Portland resident John Melis-Walsh, is one of nine newly-trained officers to be appointed across the state.He has lived in Portland all his life, aside from a year in South Australia when he was aged six and his time at Deakin University’s Warrnambool campus where he graduated with a Bachelor of Marine Biology.Mr Melis-Walsh said his interest in fisheries and the environment began as a result of his parents’ involvement in numerous conservation groups, getting him out in the field on weekends as early as he can remember."Portland is a beautiful coastline and I’m excited to be based here and looking forward to a long career with fisheries," he said.Fisheries education and enforcement director Ian Parks said the new officers have had 10 week’s training that covered everything from small boat handling to testifying in court."The training has been a comprehensive program to get the officers ready for their role as education and enforcement authorised officers for Fisheries Victoria."The nine new officers join an experienced state-wide team who are the vital front line in our efforts to ensure the sustainability of Victoria’s fish stocks."Mr Parks said the recruitment program began in August last year when 315 applications were received and the shortlisted applicants went through a competitive recruitment process involving psychometric testing, first round telephone interviews, face to face interviews and a scenario based assessment centre.
