The children are currently learning about ‘Living on the Coast’.

“We are using a talking and thinking box to stimulate children’s thinking and discussion,” said kindergarten director Sally Smith.

“We have created a 3D Mind Map with the children’s ideas and we will use those ideas to work out where to go next.”

Excursions and activities related to the ‘Living on the Coast’ theme are also in the works.

The kindergarten will also focus on sustainability and caring for the world this year.

Many of the activities will relate to how the children can look after the world.

“We are looking forward to a busy and fun year ahead,” Mrs Smith said.

The Robe Kindergarten team and children would also like to thank the anonymous person who bought a winning raffle ticket in the name of the kindergarten at the 2013 Robe Christmas Parade.

The Robe Kindergarten annual meeting will be held at the kindergarten from 7pm on March 12.

The games were keenly contested and some scores were close.

The lucky winner was Colin Pink’s team of Pat Armfield, Mike Reilly and Joy Young on 51 points with Coral Schaefer, John Dowling, Yvonne Smith and Ann Ratsch runners up on 50 points.

Kingston’s biggest summer ever

IT’S officially been Kingston’s biggest summer ever, according to statistics collected by the town’s Visitor Information Outlet.
Nanjing Night Net

Nearly 3000 people made their way through the VIO in December and January, with no signs of slowing down.

Administration and tourism officer Melanie Amezdroz said the numbers of people coming through were the most the VIO had seen.

“It makes you wonder where all these people were going before,” she said.

A popular family activity for local families and visitors was the VIO’s treasure hunt which took children and their parents all over Kingston.

A total of 170 treasure hunt bags left the VIO with plenty of positive feedback coming back in.

“A lot of the parents said it was nice to have something for the kids to do when there wasn’t nice beach weather,” said Ms Amezdroz.

“Any business is welcomed to join the treasure hunt, all they have to do is contact the council office.

“We are happy to have anyone on the hunt.”

Ms Amezdroz said one of the summer highlights at the VIO was Australia Day celebrations.

Locals and visitors from all over enjoyed the free community breakfast as well as the festivities.

“Lots of visitors came in and commented on how great it was that there was a community free breakfast,” she said.

“Visitors commented on how great the public event was.”

Now well into February there seems to be no sign of slowing down, with the VIO still seeing a number of people passing through Kingston.

“It’s interesting to see the amount of people wanting to head to Kangaroo Island or the Great Ocean Road that don’t realise how much is in this stretch,” said Ms Amezdroz. “It’s great that people are starting to stop and make stops of it rather than just passing through.

“The Limestone Coast is starting to get a bigger profile.”

She added that the VIO was a “great” facility for the local community.

“The VIO girls are here to assist community groups,” said Ms Amezdroz.

“The staff are happy to help – an example is we are helping with various tasks for the offshore fishing competition coming up.

“We are here for the community to utilise us, not just here for the tourists.”

The Kingston VIO is happy to promote public events through flyers, its website and on the database.

But the staff can’t promote community events if they don’t know about it.

“Our policy is that we have to be officially notified about an event before we can advertise it,” said Ms Amezdroz.

“If you want it advertised call the council offices.”

The VIO has an annual calendar going with community events on it and is happy to add more to it.

The calendar is also a good way for community groups to check up on what weekends look good for raffles, sales or events.

At the moment the Country Women’s Association are showcasing their talents as part of the VIO’s wall displays.

The displays change monthly and the VIO is happy for any community group or organisation to hang something.

“If a community group would like to do a display just contact us,” said Ms Amezdroz.

“It is a great facility to utilise.”

He has served in that role each year since 2009.

At the annual meeting on Friday at the Naracoorte Town Hall, Kingston mayor Evan Flint was also re-elected as SELGA vice-president.

Mayor Vickery thanked the delegates for renewing their confidence in his leadership.

“SELGA plays an important role in development of the region, and we look forward to continuing and building upon the good work the organisation has done in the past,” he said.

“The cooperative model of councils working together regionally is more important than ever.”

SELGA represents the interests of the seven constituent councils in the Limestone Coast region at a State and national level. It also has a coordinating role, facilitating cooperation between its members for mutual benefit.

“SELGA is currently reviewing its strategic direction to ensure that the association continues to be a highly effective advocate for the region on priority issues,” Mr Vickery said.

“There is significant strength in local councils coming together to act for the benefit of the SE region.”

SELGA is active in driving regional development through involvement in many local community and semi-government organisations.

Delegates to these external bodies were also elected at Friday’s SELGA annual meeting.
