PHOTOS: MARTIN HUNTER Student leaders do the hard yards • By Sophie Cornish SHIRLEY Intermediate School student leaders painted their pools for ‘serve the school day’ last week. The idea to paint the pools came from the leaders who wanted to give back to the school and also save money. The job ended up taking two days with both the main pool and a smaller pool needing a paint job. Shirley Intermediate principal Geoff Siave is proud of his student’s efforts. “They’re finding the hardest part is keeping themselves a little bit clean,” he said. Student leader Ben Cox said the students may paint the playground next. They were allowed to listen to music while painting and were provided lunch by the school.

Blair Hughes, of Paper Plus, has identified two people he wants to trespass from his store and is currently in the process of completing the paper work to do so. Once a person has received a blanket trespass, it applies to all stores signed up to the programme. But publicity about the blanket trespass could be deterring shoplifters. Mr Hughes said shoplifting incidents had dropped off recently. “I haven’t had to tackle anyone recently . . . (shoplifting) certainly hasn’t risen too much lately,” he said. An issue with trespassing people is identification. Usually a shoplifter will run before any action can be taken. So a trespass notice can only be issued if they are identified or if they return. Documentation needs to be filled out to make the trespass formal and enforceable if it went to court. •Turn to page 6 Adopt Me! The ideal pet, No feeding, no vet bills And no dirt box!!
