Each year, Australia Day WA celebrates the achievement of West Australian citizens at an award ceremony for Australians of the Year.

 

These people inspire us all and challenge us to make our own contribution to creating a better Australia.

 

This year the four Western Australia Award recipients were Professor Lyn Beazley AO FTSE (Australian of the Year); Graham Mabury OAM CitWA (Senior Australian of the Year); Drisana Levitzke-Gray (Young Australian of the Year) and Stacy Dunbar (Australia's Local Hero).

 

On May 4 the four WA Australians of the Year will set out on a three day Tour of Honour of Karratha and Broome, talking to school children at local high schools; and presenting at free public forums where the general public can meet them; hear their stories and ask them about their lives and what makes them so inspirational.

The event is organised by Australia Day WA in partnership with major supporter Woodside. 

On Australia Day eve, these four role models represented WA at The Australian of the Year Awards at Parliament House in Canberra where The Prime Minister, The Hon Tony Abbott MP, awarded Drisana Levitzke-Gray the national title of Young Australian of the Year.

 

Australia Day WA would like to acknowledge the State Government program, Count Me In which provides Ms Levitzke-Gray with interpreter services and major sponsor The Commonwealth Bank of Australia.

 

The following are the four who will be on tour.

 

Australian of the Year – Professor Lyn Beazley AO FTSE

For Professor Lyn Beazley, science has been a lifelong passion.  Over 30 years in the field of neuroscience, Lyn changed clinical practice in the treatment of infants at risk.  As Chief Scientist of Western Australia, Lyn has demonstrated that science is not just a theoretical exercise, but a practical one too.

 

Senior Australian of the Year – Graham Mabury OAM CitWA

As the host of Radio 6PR's popular Nightline program for 33 years, Graham Mabury was a light in the darkness for hundreds of thousands of radio listeners in Perth.  A pastor with the Mt Pleasant Baptist Church, a patron of many charities and an advocate for social justice, Graham established Lifeline WA in 1986, providing hope for thousands of people in need.

 

Young Australian of the Year – Drisana Levitzke-Gray

The fifth generation in her family to be born deaf, Drisana Levitzke-Gray,  is the embodiment of the concept of 'deaf gain', not 'hearing loss', inspiring the deaf community, encouraging others to accept diversity and promoting a positive image of deafness which says loudly and proudly: "it is OK to be deaf".

 

Australia's Local Hero – Stacy Dunbar

In January 2013, Stacy Dunbar's precious eight-month-old son, Nate, was killed after a drunk driver crashed through his bedroom. In the awful aftermath of the accident, Stacy launched the Pledge for Nate campaign and helped reduce the rate of drink driving offences in WA to its lowest level in 60 years. 

 

The Australian of the Year Awards is a program of the National Australia Day Council.

 

Nominations are now open for the Western Australian of the Year Awards 2016 at www.ausdaywa.com.au

Carnarfin Fishers share in $25,000 of Prizes

THE annual Carnarfin fishing competition in Carnarvon has again been a great success.
    
Organised by the local Lions club, Carnarfin is an event that gets great support from the local community, as well as visiting anglers. This year there were over 250 registrations.
    
The fishing was excellent, with fish weighed in for every category on the first four days. The daily weigh-ins were a social highlight, with a terrific atmosphere as people gathered to see who was in line to share in more than $25,000 worth of prizes.
    
Although no records were broken, some great fish were caught and the overall winner was Dave Rudge, for a 7.75kg coral trout. Some of the better catches included a 19.75kg spanish mackerel for Warren Davies, a 10.35kg red emperor boated by Daniel Plichcinsi and a 14.55kg cobia for Danny Clement.
    
An off-the-water highlight was celebrity chef Matt Moran cooking up a feast of a pink snapper he caught for the 16 category winners. 

Also an impressive $1750 was raised for cancer research by auctioning off a crocodile tooth, donated by Eryk and Michael Matusik.

Recfishwest Northern Tour Ticking all Boxes

Recfishwest Woodside fishing clinicRecfishwest Woodside Northern Community Tour

RECFISHWEST'S Woodside annual northern community tour has again been a tremendous success, with hundreds of kids in the northern half of the state having an absolute ball, over five weeks of family fishing fun.

Just about all the free clinics, saw a lot of fish caught by youngsters, with the Exmouth, Karratha, Port Hedland and Broome clinics all proving particularly successful. Kids learned all about recreational fishing, including the importance of the "Fish today for tomorrow" message, from some of WA's best anglers.

The Broome community clinic was also attended by WA Fisheries Minister Ken Baston, and representatives of major sponsor, Woodside. Minister Baston has strong links to the North-West, having spent several years living at Quobba Station, just north of Carnarvon, as a youngster.  The northern tour is also supported by Healthway, which promotes its SunSmart message.​

In addition to teaching the basics of safe and ethical angling to children and youth, the program combines mentoring and positive life skills with conservation and education in a powerful and adaptable package. For photos of what the kids are catching, check out our Facebook page here
The clinics promote fishing as a healthy outdoor family activity.

​Woodside recently took part in the Ningaloo Whaleshark Festival over 23-25 May in Exmouth.

The action-packed weekend kicked off on the Friday night with Exmouth Cultural Arts Centre's (ECAC) Exhibald Portraiture Exhibition and the Festival Gala Opening held at the Ningaloo Novotel Resort.

Saturday saw Woodside at the local Talangee Oval, where we shared information about our Woodside-operated facilities in the deep waters off North West Cape, as well as answered questions from festival goers.

The day opened with ECAC leading the very colourful ‘One World’ float parade.  Attendees enjoyed an assortment of marquee displays, kids circus workshops and live entertainment.

Party goers kicked on at Graces Tavern to support a variety of music acts.

Sunday’s Whaleshark Festival Sundowner brought the weekend to a close. Families flocked to the Exmouth Yacht Club to wind down to live music, kids entertainment and a fire extravaganza finale.

The Woodside-sponsored Ricochet Circus drew a crowd with the talented ‘Scooby’ performing circus tricks with the local kids from the weekend’s workshops.

Check out the Ningaloo Whaleshark Festival’s website to find out more: http://www.ningaloowhalesharkfestival.com/

Woodside is proud to be a partner of the Ningaloo Whaleshark Festival.

​Welcome to Canvas, Woodside's new community networking forum.

We have developed the Canvas initiative to help us be a little more human, and a little less corporate in the way we engage and communicate.

Specifically, Canvas is:
◦A social place where our staff, partners and local communities can connect, talk and share.
◦A private forum that will help us to get to know each other better.
◦A place to have authentic conversations about Woodside's social investment activities and the difference we make through working together.

Through Canvas, we aim to bring you along on our social investment journey and enable you to discuss the prospects and challenges that affect communities everywhere. Canvas provides opportunities for chatting through: blogs, discussion forums, stories and case studies, and news and events.

Enjoy!!
