Nanjing Night Net

Minister for Early Childhood Education Leslie Williams and Pru Goward Member for Goulburn visited Yass Little Learners last Monday to discuss funding for the delivery of preschool programs for four and five-year-old children in the year before school.

Ms Goward said the focus is on universal access to early childhood education and supports participation in quality preschool programs within long day care services.

“As a result of this announcement Yass Little Learners will receive up to $3,600 in additional funding to deliver its preschool program,” Ms Goward said.

“Yass Little Learners is a fantastic centre and Director Jess Grundy has made a significant investment in Yass to provide opportunities to local working families to give their kids a great start to their education.”

As part of the $24 million grants program, all long day care services with four or five year olds will be eligible for a minimum payment of $300 per child, rising to a payment of $450 for children enrolled for 600 hours.

Four or five year olds from Aboriginal backgrounds or enrolled in services in disadvantaged areas will be eligible for a minimum payment of $450 per child, increasing to $675 for those enrolled for 600 hours.

Mrs Williams said all children should have the same access to a quality early childhood education, regardless of the type of service they attend.

“Yass Little Learners will be able to use the additional funding to purchase resources, develop a preschool program based on the Early Years Learning Framework and to broaden staff capability, including upgrading qualifications,” Mrs Williams said.

Tigers keep improved Rams at bay

Jayden Brown passes from the base of a scrum during Canowindra’s match against Manildra on May 15. Brown was one of Canowindra’s best at the weekend.First grade was an up and down affair against a vastly improved Condobolin team compared to what they have fielded the last few years.

Canowindra seem to like playing harder than needed and love defending, constantly giving away easy possession and piggy backing penalties to the opposition.

The boys have several areas to improve on, after the 28-22 win, most importantly maintaining their intensity for the full 80 minute as they prepare for the local derby against Cargo next week.

On a side note, with captain-coach Matt Frazer out with a leg injury, it was good to see his brother Pete take to the field.

He gave us some steel in the middle when we needed it most.

And given he hasn’t played league for seven years, there was also promising signs from Todd Wyburn as well.

Once match fit, both Pete and Todd will be handy additions to the team and club.

As I stated earlier, next Sunday we have the local derby against Cargo with the game day sponsored by Canowindra Real Estate.

Be sure to get down to Tom Clyburn Oval to get behind and vocal to support our ladies and men.

Both games should provide some great local sporting entertainment.

On Sunday the Tigers scored after ten minutes with a try to Kurt Richardson from some classy work from Brydon Hughes and Matt Mclean on the blind side which was converted to lead 6-0.

Condobolin Rams were testing the Tigers defence with their offloads and could of scored only they dropped the ball and the Tigers to their credit were able to capitalise and they run in three more tries to lead 20-6 at the break.

Canowindra lost their urgency in defence and we’re going through the motions and let Condobolin back into the game.

The only bright point was the only second half was a try to Kurt Richardson from great work from all players sending the ball from one side of the field to the other and a great pass from Stanley Torato for Kurt to score.

Two penalty goals put the Tigers clear but Condobolin ran in late tries to close the gap but the clock was in favour of the Tigers to hold on to a narrow win which should have been more comfortable.

Captain coach Frazer wasn’t happy with the second half and will work on that at training to prepare for the next game.

First grade players’ player- Jayden Brown and Brydon Hughes, 3 points Aaron Earsman, 2 points Jayden Brown, 1 point Dave Doran and Pete Frazer.

Meanwhile Canowindra lost 16-4 at in round seven of the Woodbridge Cup league tag competition.

The Tigers performed strong and will take plenty of confidence away with them.

There is a bit of old rivalry between the two sides and it was a close game up until half time.

Unlucky girls, we need to reset and get ready for next week.

League tag players’ player- Brittany Whatman, 3 points Emma Duke, 2 points Jess Coker, 1 point Alicia Earsman.

Healthy battle looms

FRESH FACE: Christian Kunde has been chosen as the Labor candidate to take on incumbent and federal Health Minister Sussan Ley in the seat of Farrer. Photo: Fairfax.HEALTH will be the centrepiece of the Farrer election battle after Albury trainee doctor Christian Kunde was confirmed as the Labor candidate on Monday.

The Farrer electorate now includes Leeton.

“As a married man with a young family I want a future that is brighter for inland cities like Albury, Griffith and Deniliquin, not one that echoes the haves and have-nots of Malcolm Turnbull’s world,” he said.

The 30-year-old father of two is a trainee doctor at Albury hospital where Greens candidate Dr Amanda Cohn also works and the seat is held by health minister, Sussan Ley, with a margin of more than 20 per cent.

Mr Kunde said he had first-hand experience of the Coalition government’s health agenda and was particularly concerned about mental health services in the electorate.

“I’ve worked in the front line of our health services and I know firsthand the effect that Ms Ley’s government’s policies are having and will continue to have,” hesaid.

“Our health system is under attack and I want to be the one to defend that.

“Communities in our electorate should have the same access to those in Sydney and Melbourne.

Currently in Hay there is no access to psychological services and residents there have to travel to Griffith or Albury to access those services.

“The Coalition assault on Medicare has already started and Ms Ley has shownherself unwilling and unable to defend public health.”

Ms Ley said the NSW local health networks might have positions vacant, but some services were a state responsibility and some were federal.

Mr Kunde accused the government of having policies that would “drag us to an American-style health system”.

“I’m standing for Labor because we are committed to a strong and equitable public health care system,” he said.

Mr Kunde stood for the Bullet Train Party at the 2013 federal election on the Central Coast and remains a strong supporter of fast rail.

“This has the potential to transform the economy of inland cities,” he said.Mr Kunde also supported Labor’s border protection policy.

The Labor party is the last of the major parties to announce a candidate.
