Kidpreneur Market

Posted by: Money School

Kidpreneur Market

Cost: $5050

Kidpreneur Project - To provide a local market twice a year exclusively for kidpreneurs (school age students running their own business) to sell their wares and services.

Our independent financial education business Money School delivers financial literacy training and an in-class kidpreneur program called Maker Kids Club. Through this, we meet kids making and selling amazing things such as natural lip balm, affirmation cards, jewellery and seedlings.

Being a kidpreneur provides invaluable lessons for them about working and money. We want kidpreneurs to get a thorough experience of running their own business and a market would aid that. It will also help the parents who support them: no more hunting for markets to join and worrying about their fees. We (Money School) see our role as facilitators - coordinating hall hire, advertising, insurance and the like so we can provide a safe and inclusive environment while the kidpreneurs focus on launching their businesses.

Palmyra Together Community Newsletter

Posted by: Palmyra Together

Palmyra Together Community Newsletter

Cost: $10000

In May 2009, Palmyra community groups were invited to participate in a community ‘Bus Tour’ of Palmyra. Local community assets were highlighted throughout the tour including parks, community groups, churches and schools. Feedback was sought about what could be done to enhance and build community spirit in Palmyra.

In response to this feedback, the Palmyra Together community newsletter was formed. Since then the newsletter has proven itself to be a valuable and much loved community asset. The publication, production and distribution of the Palmyra Together newsletter is dependent upon financial support through sponsorship, from community minded businesses, which is a greatly valued contribution. However in order to authentically reflect and celebrate the value of our local Palmyra community, through community driven stories, we need funding beyond that which is primarily consumer driven.

We therefore humbling request support of our community through the City of Melville's Project Robin Hood.

Bateman Primary School Nature Based Adventure Playground

Bateman Primary School Nature Based Adventure Playground

Cost: $19500

Bateman Primary School with support from the Bateman Primary School P & C would like to create a nature based adventure playground for children attending Bateman Primary School and the wider community to enjoy. The playground will be positioned on the eastern edge of the school, directly adjacent to the shared public oval (Bill Ellison Reserve) and is accessable at all times to the public. It will be located under some existing shade structures amongst mature trees, providing a great opportunity for a nature based playground that will incorporate planting of additional native plants to enhance the schools existing fauna habitat.

We propose to include a nature elements such as sand, rocks, sticks, branches and mulching, as well as timber logs and plants for the children to explore and create with, amongst a combination of traditional climbing elements which could include forts, ropes, climbing frames, rope spiders and the like. There are two existing concrete tunnels and small forts which we intent to retain and refurbish that will also form part of the playground.

This playground will encourage the children to create, explore and play in a more natural environment, assisting to develop their imagination and creativity and will be an asset to the wider Bateman community.

All Saints' College Community Running Club

Cost: $19068

The All Saints’ College Running Club is open for any person aged under 18 – irrespective of where they go to school. Its aim is to help young people in our areas live a healthier lifestyle by improving the cardiovascular fitness of the community. Alongside professional instruction on the science of running, with introduction to method and technique, participants are also shown the synergies between exercise and nutrition so both elements can be enhanced to create a healthier, happier community member. Alongside this initiative is the broader goal of creating a more connected community. As we see with cycling and rowing clubs, running has the potential to create a sense of belonging which is important for mental, as well as physical, health.

Microbats and Minimising the Mozzie Menace in Melville

Posted by: The Rotary Club of Attadale

Microbats and Minimising the Mozzie Menace in Melville

Cost: $16654

Not many people have heard of microbats but there are almost seventy species of these intriguing, little mammals native to Australia. Most are threatened or endangered, especially in the metropolitan areas where urbanization robs them of their homes in the hollows of trees. We can help them to build their population back up closer to their natural levels by providing them with suitable roosting boxes where they can breed. With the help of Project Robin Hood and the Bicton Men’s Shed, we plan to provide 100 subsidized microbat roosting boxes to householders in the City of Melville and another 50 free to schools and community groups.

These little critters eat 40 to 50 percent of their own bodyweight in insect pests every night, including mosquitoes and fruit fly.

Some incredible maths:

100 boxes x 40 microbats = 4,000 extra microbats, each eating 40% of their bodyweight every night.

That’s 4,000 x 34.4g = 137.6 kg. In a year that will be 365 x 137.6kg = 50,224kg or just over 50 tonnes.

Eating over 50 tonnes of insect pests a year must be a huge community benefit!

Apart from helping to save threatened and endangered microbats and potentially killing tonnes of insect pests the major part of our project is to offer quality educational packages to our schools and information to the public about microbats and mosquitoes via fliers, displays and a purpose-built web site.

Be warned! Do not confuse our delightful, sophisticated, little microbats with the well-known and highly visible megabats that can gather in huge numbers and be a nuisance with their noise and smell. Learning about native microbats is absolutely fascinating! And when you get to know them you will just love them.Vote 1 Microbats.

Attadale Nature Play Space

Attadale Nature Play Space

Cost: $20000

Most of us have fond memories of childhood days spent making mud pies and stick forts. Life was simple and fun. Help us make sure your children have this opportunity too through the creation of a new nature play space on the grounds of the Attadale Primary School. With limited nature based play facilities in the Attadale/Alfred Cove/Bicton area this project will bring these communities together to help create an adventureland for all to enjoy. Fundraising and planning for this project is being driven by a strong community team (lead by the Attadale Primary School P&C).


The play areas will use natural materials such as ropes, rock and wood to encourage creative play and interaction. We would use the Robinhood grant to help works on the early stages of development of a nature play space flowing down the slope next to the school oval. This area is unfenced and easily accessible by anyone in the community outside of school hours - allowing the benefits of nature play to be shared by all in the community and creating a hub for friendships to be formed across the area. Get on board to help us make this amazing project happen. With research showing the importance of play for kids and the value of nature in reducing stress levels in little ones this is a great opportunity to create a local hub of happiness. “Of all the paths you take in life make sure a few of them are dirt”.

Palmyra Primary School Nature Play Tree Deck

Palmyra Primary School Nature Play Tree Deck

Cost: $9820

PALMYRA TREE DECK

Our dynamic school is situated right in the heart of Palmyra. With over 500 students and home to the extremely popular Palmyra Farmer’s Markets, the school is not only a place of learning but also the hub of the community.

A group of teachers, the school gardener and community members are working together to create an inspiring nature play area to replace our tired and extremely well used early childhood playground. This area is used each school day by well over 100 children and is also a very popular meeting place for our community after school and on the weekends.

Staff and community members have pooled their wonderful ideas and a talented school parent has drawn up an amazing concept plan. This plan was presented to the community at a nature play afternoon, where parents and children were invited to comment and add further input.

It was decided that the focal point of this area will be a deck area and upper platform which will wraps around a beautiful Peppermint tree. The deck will provide a space to play, learn and congregate, the platform, just under the tree’s canopy will be a play area with possibilities only limited by the children’s imagination.

A Place to Connect and Reflect - A Labyrinth journey to the centre of one's recovery

Posted by: Connect Groups Support Groups Association WA Inc.

A Place to Connect and Reflect - A Labyrinth journey to the centre of one's recovery

Cost: $19980

A labyrinth is not a maze. A labyrinth is designed to allow the walker to become calm and free the mind so that life’s problems can be thought through. Labyrinths have a long and rich history and can be dated back to at least 4000 BC. It has a single, winding path which takes the walker to a central space. The walker does not have to make decisions about where to walk; it is a matter of simply following the path into the centre and following it back out again. Labyrinth-walking is something that is designed so that you do not think about the route you are following. One path leads to the centre and one path leads out again. The basic premise is that moving in a non-thinking activity will free the mind hopefully to lead to a state of calmness, meditation and possibly enlightenment.

The intent is to build the Labyrinth within the City of Melville with its precise location being determined in consultation with the council and the local community. The design of the Labyrinth will be non-denominational; will address disability access and will respect the traditional owners of the land who retain this land as sacred. It will incorporate benches so that community groups can meet there and utilise the labyrinth. Materials will be designed and installed to facilitate full compliance with accessibility standards and in conjunction with the cities maintenance team. Plant species will be locally endemic, low water use and low maintenance. Both plants and materials will be placed to ensure accepted principles are considered.

Happy Birthday Attadale Netball Club (Troy Park Netball Court Upgrade)

Cost: $20000

At Attadale Netball Club, we are currently the main users of the netball courts at Troy Park over the winter season, and in the lead up to the 50th anniversary of the formation of the club in 2018, we want to share the love! Sadly for everyone in the community, the courts have deteriorated over the years from all of our 300+ players training so hard week in, week out! We would therefore like to help by offering our team and resources to initiate a project to upgrade the courts so that we can share our favourite home ground with the community, and continue to train locally.

The courts are a perfect place to come on the weekend to hone your netball skills, practice shooting basketball hoops, ride your scooter away from the dangerous roads and car parks, or hop skip and jump your way through a good ol’ fashioned hopscotch game! If Robin Hood could help us out with $20,000 this would be enough that we would be able to resurface the two oldest of the courts that are currently close to crumbling away.

Help us to improve your local facilities, and make the courts shiny and new again!

Talkable

Posted by: Talkable Speech Pathology and Baby Generation Childcare

Talkable

Cost: $8800

Did you know that 1 in 5 toddlers will be late to talk? A child’s vocabulary, and the language learning environment that is provided in the first three years of life, are strong predictors of their later success at school. Even though we know that helping children in the first three years of life is the most effective time to combat language delay, this critical period for intervention can be missed as children often wait on long waiting lists to receive public speech pathology services. Many parents simply cannot afford to access private speech pathology.

The Solution : Our project is a partnership between local child care centres, Talkable speech pathology and students from Murdoch University. The project will provide FREE education and support to families and early childhood educators through a group program and mobile app that provides expert advice and guides participants through how to implement a rich language learning environment at home.

The program will consist of:

- 3x 2hour group workshops (at weeks 1, 5 and 10 of the program)

- Weekly video tutorials provided via a mobile application

- Weekly online support via group chat sessions

Who is this program for?

- Parents who are expecting a child or have a child under the age of 3 years.

- Grandparents who care for a child under the age of 3 years.

- Early childhood educators who work with young children 0 to 3 years.

Bushfood and Native Spieces Community Corridor

Cost: $10000

Imagine a neighbourhood where the local school and community work together to create a community verge that attracts local natives such as birds and lizards as well as growing bush tucker to eat. Can Mount Pleasant Primary School inspire people to re-vegetate the verges and in doing so create a sustainable future by building close relationships with the community and nature? The community Bushfood Corridor will be located on the council side of the school fence running along the entire length of Gunbower between the intersections of St Michael’s Terrace and Henley Street, allowing community access at all times. On the days when students are accessing the bush corridor for busy bees, weeding, new plantings and monitoring growth, we will advertise this through our newsletter, website and a local letter drop to foster greater involvement from the parents and members of the public in the neighbouring community.

This project endeavours to teach both young and old how to plant a native and bush tucker garden whilst also creating a community spirit. There will be community talks, planting mature trees, tube stock and propagating plants from seedlings and learning how to grow edible food with less resources whilst revitalising the neighbourhood. This project has strong links to the WA Curriculum and cross priorities such Indigenous Studies and Sustainability ensuring that tomorrow’s generation can making lasting changes to our daily practices to build a resilient community.

We wish to publish a book written by members of the Royal Australian Air Force Association on the history of the Aviation Heritage Museum of Western Australia that is located in the City of Melville. We would like to produce 1000 copies of the book to disseminate to the public at large.

The book chronicles the people of vision that organised and initiated the collection of historical aircraft, aviation artefacts, and the construction of the Museum's buildings. It also tells the story of the Museum's Curators that have help build one of the best aviation museums in Australia. The book has over one hundred, copyright free, one of a kind, historical pictures of the aviation items collected, the construction of the museum buildings on the Bull Creek Estate and the people that made it happen. The book will be a benefit to the wider community by helping them to understand and remember the struggles and challenges of starting a local Museum from nothing and the joy and satisfaction of building a very successful museum in the city of Melville.

McCoy and Hulme Court Community Space

McCoy and Hulme Court Community Space

Cost: $15000

We would like to activate the under utilised grassed area along the McCoy St/Hume Cout verge by making it a welcoming space for residents, staff and customers who frequent the area. Our project is to install a bike rack and seating along the verge from the McCoy St entry of Hulme Court to the driveway into the McCoy St business collective. We want to encourage a healthier, outdoor lifestyle by allowing the community an opportunity to engage with their environment. We imagine people will cycle to work, to get theirmorning coffee or attend their local xtend barre class. The design concept is sculptural and artistic to generate interest and create a 'talking point' for locals to connect over. It will be eye catching in order to slow traffic as it travels down McCoy St. The installation of a bike rack and seating will develop into a 'community hub' and meeting place - staff from surrounding businesses will eat lunchthere, parents whose children frequent the facilities in the area will sit outside and connect with nature, and residents will sit with their fur babies! We have engaged local businesses to work on the project. The design is bespoke and pays homage to the light industrial area and local public artwork already on display in McCoy St. As founder of Creative Communities International, David Engwicht said, "We rely on the intelligence of one or two public planners rather than the magic and creativity that each individual can brin to the public realm." We want to inject creativitiy into our immediate area to inspire others to care for it, use it and most of all, ENJOY IT!

The Karoonda 'Parkfit' Exercise Equipment

Cost: $22000

With the emphasis on a healthy and active lifestyle, we would like to have some Multi-station Fitness Equipment installed near the current childrens playground. With the recent upgrade of the Karoonda Reserve clubrooms and facilities, this beautiful park is looking better than ever! Surrounded by gum trees, Karoonda Reserve is a very popular park currently used daily by families, dogs and their owners, fitness fanatics, picnicers, kids in the playground or sporting on the grass, as well as the four sporting clubs.

With the Karoonda Reserve located between Booragoon, Brantwood, Ardross and Mount Pleasant, this installation could benefit anyone from the local community and is suitable for children, the elderly, hardcore sports women & men, casual working out, or just the "something to do while you wait for your child to finish training" kind of user.

I have recently contacted Forpark Australia, a WA family owned company, and found out all the equipment is made and assembled locally. Melville Council is currently a client of Forpark Australia and would be aware of the quality of the product, including the 25 year warranty and ease of maintenance.

Brentwood Booragoon Football Club have agreed to be responsible for any ongoing maintenance as there are members of the club who are qualified in the industry. In conclusion, this Robin Hood III Project ": The Karoonda "Parkfit" Equipment Project offers anyone and everyone in our community the opportunity to get fitter and more flexible, healthier and stronger for free.

A Community Gazebo on Applecross Foreshore

Cost: $20000

It’s no secret that Applecross’ foreshore one of the best in Perth – plenty of open space, a stunning backdrop and a vibrant hub of independent cafes and shops just a stone’s throw away. Incredible as it is, we think it’s missing something, and that’s a focal point.

Applecross Rotary is hoping to secure funds from this round of Robin Hood funding to create a gazebo structure on the grassed area near the iconic Applecross Jetty. This gazebo – our community’s gazebo – could serve as a place for small gatherings, weddings, birthday parties, meetup groups, even perhaps a regular yoga class once it’s built. And of course, it will be a place where dog walkers, cyclists and visitors to the area can shelter out of the sun and enjoy the natural beauty that’s in abundance.

Perhaps most important is the fact that Applecross Rotary doesn’t want to just build the structure for the community, we want to get the community involved too! We’re looking to, where possible, include activities such as mosaic workshops for young and older residents to introduce more colourful and interesting feature on the floor; and running foreshore busy bees where we can reward participants with a Rotary-funded sausage sizzle. We’re pretty sure people like the idea of a gazebo– we surveyed more than 150 people, and almost everyone was in favour of something that would bring some extra shade to this much-loved foreshore area.

If successful we intend to supplement the funds from the City of Melville with our own fundraising efforts to ensure this gazebo is worthy of its stunning riverfront location.

We value your consideration – should you require more information before placing your vote, or want to get involved at any stage, please email feedback@applecrossrotary.org.

Totem Nation - The Concept.

The City of Melville Citizenship Ceremony on Australia Day (26th January) has for many years been conducted alongside the Lions Club of Bull Creek’s Australia Day Breakfast in a local park which remains the focus of community activities throughout the year. This event celebrates the diverse and successful community that Bull Creek has become. In order to celebrate our unique community spirit and cultural diversity, the Bull Creek Lions Club is proposing a TOTEM NATION project. This will see the enhancement of the existing park gardens with seven, specially designed totem poles representing the seven regions of the globe that our community has migrated from and made Bull Creek their home. The seven regions are: AUSTRALIA, OCEANIA, ASIA, AFRICA, EUROPE, NORTH AMERICA and SOUTH AMERICA. The totems will be designed to represent the people, culture and symbols of those religious and various artists from our community will participate in the design competition. The result will be a permanent reminder of the wonderful and positive contribution that migrants have made, and continue to make, in our community. Bull Creek Lions will work with the City of Melville and the community to select a suitable tranquil and accessible location to display this TOTEM NATION project.

This community building activity will see students of Ardross Primary and community members work together with a local artist to bring to life a bright colourful mural featuring our local sea life and animals. It will be a great opportunity for students and community members to participate in workshops and learn new skills, giving them an opportunity to express themselves through art, the pride in seeing their work on display and learn more about our local environment and animals. Our school P&C is committed to making Ardross and our local community a great place to live, we hope the mural will be a great asset to the community and continue to inspire the students and the community to love and protect our local environment.
