Last month, qualified Bosun Andy Laurie from Leeuwin Ocean Adventure Foundation was able to experience life at sea onboard another tall ship, the SV Tenacious, on a voyage in New Zealand.

The tall ship was designed and built specifically to be fully accessible for persons with disabilities. She was launched on 1st September 2000 from Southampton, England.

Andy found himself onboard the vessel in June through the Woodside Crew Exchange Program.

Leeuwin CEO Carol Shannon speaks about the opportunity available to her crew in the program.

"Through generous funding by Woodside, up to three crew exchanges are offered to outstanding Leeuwin Crew or Volunteer Crew for an experience onboard another vessel each year," said Ms Shannon.

"Crew exchanges are an incredibly powerful way of providing training and career development, broadening individual skill sets and providing opportunities to operate under different operating conditions."

Andy comments on what an amazing experience the exchange was.

"What a great ship to see operate and what a great bunch of people to meet along the way. Wellington to Auckland was great sailing," he said.

Tenacious includes special design features not seen on other ships including wheelchair lifts, a speaking compass and a joystick to enable people with limited dexterity to helm the ship.

"The trainee crew are a mix of physical abilities, including those in wheelchairs. It can be sailed and handled from deck so as to include everyone regardless of their physical abilities," he said.

Andy was part of regular watch rotations, but was also able to spend time with the Tenacious Bosun and viewed it's more modern rigging technology.

"I found the vessel, being larger than Leeuwin, interesting to observe its manoeuvring characteristics, sail handling and adult program."

The Crew Exchange is part of a larger program sponsored by Woodside to encourage WA youth to join the marine or maritime industry. Voyage scholarships, the Woodside Cadet Program and offshore Career Development are all part of the Leeuwin Marine Career Pathway.

The Leeuwin Foundation is an award winning provider of personal development and leadership programs that provides key life skills for young people aged 14-25 that they will take into their studies, careers and community.

Since 1986, the Leeuwin has provided exciting and life-changing programs to more than 40,000 young people across Australia.

The voyages aim to challenge and inspire young people to realise their personal potential and make a positive contribution to the wider community.

Earlier this month, a Leeuwin representative attended the Broome Career Expo held onsite at Broome Senior High School to promote and allocate the Woodside Marine Career Scholarships to local youth.

As part of the three year sponsorship agreement, 60 Woodside Scholarships are available to young people aged 14-25 who live in the Broome, Roebourne, Karratha, Exmouth or Perth Metropolitan area and who are interested in a career in the marine environment or the maritime industry. Participants are able to board the STS Leeuwin II for a week-long adventure of a lifetime.

Leeuwin School Relations Coordinator Rachel Le Moignan commented on the regional visit.

“We love to annually visit the Kimberley region, and the Broome Career Expo was the perfect time to reach the schools in the area,” said Rachel.

“The atmosphere was wonderful, and the students were keen to engage, ask questions and overall showed such an interest in our Youth Leadership program.”

800 students were expected to attend the exhibition on the day, with students from several local high schools in attendance.

“The Leeuwin offered a draw in which students interested in a marine career could express their interest to win one of five Woodside Marine Career Scholarships. Winners will be announced this week and we can’t wait to welcome them on board a voyage later this year,” said Rachel.

While in town, the Leeuwin representative visited the Navy Cadets, Shire of Broome and North Regional TAFE. The Foundation help to continue their relationships in the region and build on new projects in 2018.

The Leeuwin Foundation is an award winning provider of personal development and leadership programs that provide key life skills for young people aged 14-25 that they will take into their studies, careers and community.

Since 1986, the Leeuwin has provided exciting and life-changing programs to more than 40,000 young people from across Australia.

The voyages aim to challenge and inspire young people to realise their personal potential and make a positive contribution to the wider community.

Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company is proud to present Richard Frankland’s classic, Conversations With The Dead.

Frankland’s story is an immensely important one… (he) clearly understands the systemic nature of the problem, the futility of scapegoating individuals. The Age

This is an extraordinary play…life reflected back in full colour. Realtime
 
In the 50th Anniversary year of the 1967 referendum we are proud to bring to life this seminal play that reflects on an issue that requires a re-examination of just how far (or not) the treatment of Aboriginal people in custody has come since the Royal Commission.
Best described as a play with songs, Conversations With The Dead revisits the tragedy of Jack, a young ambitious Koori, whose role is to look into the lives of the dead and the process, policy and attitudes that killed them.
 
Fusing together multiple time frames, a transformative set, a live sound scape, calculated stage movement and dialogue delivered with precision by a strong cast in order to explore Jack’s inner conflict and the personal struggles he faces.
 
Written by Richard Frankland MA, directed by James Taylor with musical direction by Wayne Freer, this raw and powerful play pulls no punches and asks the question:
How far have we come in the treatment of Aboriginal people in custody since the 1992 Royal Commission?
 
Suitable for audiences aged 15+
Dates: 18 May – 27 May 2017
Venue: Subiaco Arts Centre, 180 Hamersley Road SUBIACO WA 6008

The Karratha Clontarf Academy recently took 37 boys (Years 7-9) on their annual Term 1 camp to Broome. The boys joined with other Clontarf Academies from Broome, Derby, Fitzroy Crossing, Halls Creek and Kununurra to take part in the Clontarf West Kimberley Shield Football Carnival. This was the first time Karratha has taken two teams to the carnival and was the biggest camp in the Academy’s history.

Along with competing in the West Kimberley Shield, the boys participated in a variety of activities as part of a reward for their commitment to school in Term 1.  Such activities included a tabloid sports evening, volunteering at Bran Nue Day (aged care facility), a visit to the crocodile park, dinner at a local Broome restaurant and morning tea with Melissa Price MP, Federal Member for Durack. The boys showed great maturity and leadership in all activities, in particular at the morning tea where seven boys presented to Melissa on what they get up to each day in their Academy.

Please click on the link below to view Melissa discussing the visit in Federal Parliament last week:

Callum Tromp.jpg 

The STS Leeuwin II's 2016 – 2017 season kicked off recently with voyages down to Bunbury and back earlier this month.

Palmyra resident, Callum Tromp (16) was one of six trainees onboard who were awarded a Woodside Marine Career Scholarship and joined the ship's first voyage of the season.

Throughout the week-long youth development program, the youth learnt key life skills such as leadership, teamwork and communication alongside thirty nine other trainees.

The Woodside Marine Scholarships are still available to any youths aged 14-25 interested in a career in the marine environment or maritime industry and reside in Karratha, Exmouth, Broome, Roebourne or Perth Metro region.

Sixteen year old trainee Callum Tromp has a strong ambition to be a Ship's Pilot and his sail on the STS Leeuwin II was a great starting point.

Callum describes his career aspirations.

"This voyage was the start of my career towards becoming Captain of cruise or cargo ship," Callum says.

He talks about his future after receiving the Woodside Scholarship and extends thanks to them having helped him on his way to achieving his goals.

"I'll be sure to let Woodside know how my journey is going. I'm sure one day I'll contact them saying that I have completed my Master 1," he says.  

Claudia Jones (17) from Gooseberry Hill also received a Woodside Scholarship to join the voyage returning to Fremantle and explains her positive experience.

"Woodside have allowed me to experience something that pushed me to my limits and allowed me to step outside of my comfort zone," says Claudia.

For many years a voyage on the Leeuwin has been the catalyst for young people to pursue a career on the ocean. 

CEO Carol Shannon describes the application process.

"To apply, all you have to do is describe your marine career aspiration, it could be anything from a role in the fishing industry, a marine chef, water police, marine law or marine architect," says Carol.

During the week at sea youth are involved in all operations of sailing the ship from doing night watches, taking the helm, setting sails and climbing the 35 metre main mast.

Scholarships are still available and cover $1500 of the voyage fare, leaving $600 to be covered by the applicant or local community.

The Leeuwin has three Youth Explorer voyages left for 2016. The 1614 Geraldton to Fremantle voyage, the 1615 End of Year voyage and the 1617 School Holiday voyage. For more information or to apply call (08) 9430 4105.

Fifteen year old North Beach local William Kent experienced the voyage of a lifetime onboard the STS Leeuwin II after receiving a Woodside Marine Scholarship recently.​

The Woodside Scholarships are allocated to ambitious youth aged 14-25 with an interest in starting a career in a marine environment or maritime industry, just like Will.
 
Will describes himself as having a passion for the ocean and plans to come back as soon as he can and learn more about a marine career.

"With my passion for maritime and my hopes for a career within the industry, I was lucky enough to gain a scholarship through Woodside," Will said.

"The thought of being on the Leeuwin excites me and I hope to one day return as a crew member or possibly even Captain."

During his time onboard the tall ship, Will built upon his work-ready skills (including leadership, teamwork and communication) during night watches, made new friends and climbed to the top of the 33 metre mast to read the secret message.

The Leeuwin Ocean Adventure Foundation's Chief Executive Officer, Carol Shannon said "For many years a voyage on the Leeuwin has been the catalyst for young people to pursue a career on the ocean. For young people who have these aspirations it can be very hard to find the funds to study for the necessary qualifications."

As a Year 10 student at Newman College, Will aims to become a Marine Engineer once he finishes.

"The Leeuwin experience encouraged me to follow a career in the maritime industry by showing me first-hand what it is like to be out on the ocean and having a life at sea," said Will.​

The Leeuwin Ocean Adventure Foundation has been named as a finalist for the WA Industry Collaboration Award, sponsored by the Department of Training and Workforce Development.

Anne-Marie Archer CEO at the Leeuwin comments on what this means to the Foundation.

“The Leeuwin Foundation is proud to be named as a finalist for the WA Training Awards. It has taken years of hard work by a number of marine industry partners and education providers to introduce our Marine Careers Pathway Program, which supports young people keen to pursue a career in the marine industry,” said Ms Archer.

“In light of the program's success, Woodside have generously funded scholarships for young people who are interested in a marine career to experience first-hand what is like to go to sea on a working ship.”

“We couldn’t be happier that we are able to offer youth without any seafaring experience to come onboard the STS Leeuwin II. As a trainee we are able to empower them, with self-determination and relevant interest in a marine career, to become a professional seafarer through assistance in gaining relevant qualifications.”

Recognition in this area will help to raise awareness for the program, and ensure the Leeuwin Foundation are able to continue to offer this assistance for many years to come.

“There has been considerable work put into the development of Marine Career Pathway Program to ensure it can run seamlessly within our award winning Youth Development Program which means they really do get the best of both worlds!" said Ms Archer.

Once youth have experienced a maiden voyage, they can return as a volunteer to continue their experience and personal development. For those interested in a career at sea, they are able to build on their sea time and gain experience which is an amazing foundation for future careers.

Through Woodside's partnership with Earth Science Western Australia (ESWA), I was recently given the opportunity to volunteer at the LNG18 Students Forum in April 2016.

At the forum I presented to the students, helped to facilitate interactive activities and escorted the students through a tour of the exhibition hall and to LNG18 speaker sessions, developing my professional leadership and speaking skills. It was wonderful to have the opportunity to support the students in learning about our industry and to see them delve into the process and science behind the LNG market, from production to customer use.

ESWA also generously organised for a work experience student from Esperance, who I was hosting that week at the Woodside office, to attend the Students Forum. The experience left the student motivated and inspired to continue to pursue career opportunities in the Oil and Gas sector.

I am so grateful for the opportunity that was provided through ESWA to pass on my knowledge and inspire the next generation of students aspiring to enter our industry at the Chevron hosted LNG18 student form. A big thank you to Jo Watkins from ESWA.

So far this year Scitech has hosted two GT events; Astronaut in March, and Earth Explorers in May.​

Both events were very successful, helped by the hands-on enthusiasm of graduate volunteers from Woodside. At the Earth Explorers event we had ten incredible graduates who gave up their time to inspire students.

Their main role on the night, other than acting as volcanoes in the main challenge, was to answer questions about what a career in STEM actually looks like; what does a petroleum engineer do? What will the future of resources processing be? If I'm creative and good at maths, what kind of job can I have?

There were lots of inspiring conversations on the night, which all add up to encouraging Western Australia's next generation to look at STEM differently - by thinking critically about issues and applying creative, innovative solutions, we can secure the social and economic future of our state.

Scitech GT, supported by Woodside, supports gifted and talented students with an interest in STEM as they transition from PEAC programs in to thigh school. We welcomed 95 year 6 students and their parents to the program at the second event in May, and they will stay in the program until the end of year 8.

If you are a graduate and want to volunteer at the next event, contact James Gosling or Danielle Bejr to find out more.

A drug developed by Woodside Professor Ruth Ganss and her team from the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research could be used to repair blood vessel defects and allow for more targeted and effective drug delivery.

Professor Ruth GanssCurrent anti-cancer treatments like chemotherapy and immunotherapy, which harness a person’s own killer immune cells, can struggle to enter a tumour because the blood vessels that fuel it become malformed.

Tumours require a lot of nutrients, so surrounding blood vessels are redirected towards the cancer and ultimately develop abnormalities.

While investigating this problem Professor Ganss and her team in the Perkins Vascular Biology and Stromal Targeting Laboratory found that smooth muscle cells that line blood vessels to give them shape and help them pump blood, often break down in tumours.

Once the smooth muscle cells break down, the blood vessel becomes leaky, reducing blood flow and preventing chemotherapy and immune cells travelling into the tumour.

Professor Ganss said the new drug developed in her laboratory worked by repairing the smooth muscle cells and returning normal blood flow to the vessels, allowing other anti-cancer drugs to reach the tumours core.
