Women lead the way

New Mayors ready for what’s ahead

ELLIE BUSBY

Our city’s newest leaders say

they’re ready to take on the challenges

that come with the top jobs

in Parramatta and Cumberland.

Elected as the new Lord Mayor for the

City of Parramatta, Labor Councillor

Donna Davis will be only the third woman

in its 160-year-history to lead the city.

Fellow Labor councillor Sameer Pandey

was appointed Deputy Lord Mayor,

becoming the first to be elected from the

Indian subcontinent.

Cr Davis said she is committed to helping

the city evolve by building on the work

that has been done before her.

“I want to make sure that as a Council we

are delivering the best outcomes for our

community, whether they’re in Winston

Hills, Wentworth Point, Epping or Toongabbie,”

Cr Davis said.

Featuring a record-breaking number of

women, Cr Davis said she is excited to lead

such an inclusive council.

“Women make up 50 per cent of our

population, so it’s important that this is

also reflected in the elected representation

at all levels of government,” Cr Davis

said.

“I am passionate about leading our new

chamber of Councillors, which not only

includes a record number of women, but

also represents a diverse range of views,

ages, abilities and experiences.”

Cr Davis paid tribute to all former Lord

Mayors, particularly Councillor Lorraine

Wearne, who was the first female Lord

Mayor at the former Parramatta City

Council from 2000-2001 and 2011-2012,

and Julia Finn, who held the top position

from 2004-2005.

For Cumberland City, Labor Councillor

Lisa Lake replaces Steve Christou as the

new Mayor.

Wanting to create “a council of

substance”, Cr Lake said she is looking to

put a strong focus on improving sports

grounds, libraries, pools, parks and playgrounds,

as well as increasing employment

opportunities for youths.

Fellow Labor representative Kun Huang

joins her as Deputy Mayor.

When it comes to enhancing decision

making in the council, Cr Lake believes

gender equality is of significant importance.

Cumberland Mayor Lisa Lake and Parramatta Lord Mayor Donna Davis.

“It enables women to have an impact

on the decisions and to stand up for local

issues that can sometimes be overlooked

by a male dominated council,” she said.

By providing a woman’s perspective

on planning, development and capital

expenditure, Cr Lake is envisioning “a

little bit of a shift in priorities”.

@troydodds

Twitter claims another scalp

If you ever wanted proof that there’s

something broken in the way we take in

our political news, you only need look at

the reaction to a proposal to allow teens

to drive forklifts last week.

Alan Mascarenhas

@alanmasc

News...............................................1-17

Business...................................18-19

Horoscopes...............................20

It came and went quickly, largely because

the media laughed at it and Twitter

was outraged. The joke quickly became

that Scott Morrison was planning to enlist

primary school kids in the plan.

As Omicron rains down, spare a thought

for the graduating class of 2021. Preparing

for the HSC is stressful at the best of

times.

But doing so while navigating a once-ina-century

pandemic – which, if you live in

Parramatta or Cumberland, meant being

locked down within five kilometres, getting

vaccinated in stadiums and sitting

exams a month late – it became a true

odyssey.

Thousands of students received their

results last week. Perhaps one day, they

will reflect that it was adaptability, resilience

and perseverance they learned in

the HSC more than any subject in the syllabus.

It is understandable we celebrate the

high achievers, as well as local schools

like James Ruse, Baulkham Hills High,

Girraween High, Al-Faisal College, Alpha

Omega Senior College, Our Lady of

Mercy College, Cerdon College and Parramatta

Marist High School, which all

featured in the top 150.

Our local suburbs are full of parents

who are ambitious for their children.

Many move here to be near their preferred

schooling.

Whether that involves the local high

school, selective, independent or devoutly

religious school, decisions about

how to educate one’s child are highly

personal. Families have the right to value

whatever criteria they wish.

But as someone who sat their HSC exams

25 years ago, I’ve come to realise that

life is a bit more complex than labelling

one school as better than another simply

because it sparkles with more names in

the Distinguished Achievers list.

It’s also sheer lunacy to reduce our

achievements and hopes for the future to

a single score.

Completing my HSC seemed like a

huge deal at the time. But a quarter century

later, it has become such a blip that

I’d completely forgotten how my results

arrived. Did we have to ring a hotline?

In the early days of the Internet, did the

Board of Studies somehow manage to set

up an online portal? Did we simply wait

for it to arrive in the mail?

After consulting my similarly forgetful

contemporaries this week, one of them finally

remembered that most of us awoke

early and lined up for our envelope at our

nearest Australia Post distribution centre.

I can’t be sure, but that seems about right.

There’s no doubt that obtaining a high

ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admissions

Rank) gives you options.

Entertainment ...................21-29

Business Directory........30-31

Sport .................................................32

That was never the idea. The plan to

extend forklift licences to teens who are

already allowed to drive cars was worth

exploring. Unfortunately, the finger

pointers never let it get off the ground.

HSC score will never define you

But even the perceived prestige of university

degrees is gradually eroding in

a world of hollowed out campuses and

rapid technological change where people

will need to update their skills multiple

times.

The experience of my circle is that there

were many paths to becoming a doctor,

lawyer, journalist, computer programmer

or vet.

Many ways to start your own business.

No need to abandon your dream just because

you didn’t get the right score.

And as life goes on, perhaps we reflect

on the meaning of success.

A gentle and wise supervisor once encouraged

us to resist comparing ourselves

against others.

People ebb and flow at different stages

of life. One of my friends has a high-powered

job but their partner is seriously ill.

Another got great marks yet chooses to

lead a nomadic lifestyle hiking abroad.

The bloke doing “best” of all (as he frequently

reminds us) is making a small

fortune as a manufacturer – but was no

superstar back at school.

Congratulations, class of 2021. Whether

you were happy or not with your result

last week, I wish you the best in finding a

path that is authentically yours.

Parramatta’s Australia Day concert series cancelled due to COVID-19

ELLIE BUSBY

With COVID numbers increasing

and public health

orders changing, the City of

Parramatta has postponed its Australia

Day ‘Summer Sessions’ concert series.

Originally scheduled to run across today

and tomorrow in the Crescent, Parramatta

Park, the event was set to feature a great

live music line-up of rock royalty including

Jon Stevens and Baby Animals, as well

as Alice Ivy (pictured).

This marks the second consecutive year

that Parramatta’s Australia Day events

have been postponed due to COVID-19

concerns.

“We were looking forward to holding our

summer concert series, but in the interest

of public health and safety we had to make

the difficult decision to postpone it due

to the current COVID situation,” City of

Parramatta Lord Mayor Donna Davis said.

“However, we are already planning for

these concerts to be rescheduled for a later

date, and we are committed to continuing

to support the Australian music and entertainment

industry after what has been an

Alice Ivy was due to perform in Parramatta, but COVID has claimed the concert.

incredibly difficult two years. While the

challenges of COVID have impacted our

events calendar over the past two years, we

have found new ways to celebrate with our

community by presenting online events

and COVID-safe in-person gatherings.”

While outdoor events are allowed to

proceed under the current health orders

and rules, a number of councils have

made the call to cancel their events.

The Australia Day Citizen of the Year

Awards and Lord Mayor’s Citizenship

Ceremony at Rosehill Gardens are set to

go ahead as scheduled, in line with COVID

safety guidelines.

“These events are a great opportunity

to recognise the contributions made by

members of our community and celebrate

the residents who have received their

Australian citizenship,” Cr Davis said.

The NSW Government announced on

Monday, January 17 that organisers of

major events and festivals that have been

cancelled or significantly disrupted by

COVID Public Health Orders can now

expect to be supported by funding through

the Event Saver Fund.

This will allow major event organisers

to pay suppliers, staff and recover other

costs where an event is cancelled or

significantly disrupted as a result of public

health orders.

“As we look to rebound from the effects of

the past two years, this funding will help

support local jobs and ensure major event

organisers can plan with confidence,”

Minister for the Arts Ben Franklin said.

LORD

MAYOR’S

MESSAGE

CR DONNA

DAVIS

On Wednesday 26 January, Council will be hosting

its Australia Day Citizen of the Year Awards and

Lord Mayor’s Citizenship Ceremony at Rosehill

Gardens, in line with COVID guidelines.

The Lord Mayor’s Citizenship Ceremony will see

some of our local residents receive their Australian

Citizenship. These new citizens are from Afghanistan,

Brazil, Colombia, Jordan, Pakistan, the Philippines,

South Korea, the Syrian Arab Republic, the United

Kingdom, and United States.

Welcome

Earlier this month, I had the privilege of being elected

the new Lord Mayor of the City of Parramatta. I am

grateful for this opportunity and thank my colleagues

for placing their trust in me to lead our great City.

While the last few years have been challenging, we

have so much to look forward to this year, with the

completion and opening of our cultural, civic and

community centre – Parramatta Hive (Phive) – and

progress on other major projects around the City.

As the City’s third female Lord Mayor, I’m excited

to lead this inclusive and diverse Council, which

includes a record-breaking number of women. When

I look around the chamber and see councillors from

all walks of life, backgrounds, ages and experiences,

I feel incredibly proud. The diversity in our community

is well represented.

I would like to acknowledge all the former councillors

who have contributed to making Parramatta the

vibrant city it is today. I’m really looking forward to

listening to our community and working alongside

my fellow councillors to continue delivering great

projects and services for the people of Parramatta.

Upcoming Australia Day celebrations

Parramatta is a great place to live and we are glad

they have chosen our city and country to call home.

I look forward to welcoming our newest Australians

and celebrating this momentous occasion with

them on the day.

We will also be presenting our Australia Day Citizen

of the Year Awards. These awards are a great

opportunity to celebrate the contribution made by

members to our community, like Major Ian Carter

(pictured), who was named 2021 Adult Citizen of the

Year for his passionate work as an advocate for

suicide prevention and positive mental health

support in the local community.

Unfortunately, Council has made the difficult

decision to postpone the Summer Sundown concert

on 25 January and the Australia Day concert on

26 January, due to the current COVID-19 situation

and changes to public health orders. Both concerts

were scheduled to take place in The Crescent,

Parramatta Park.

This is disappointing but the health and safety of

our artists, workers and audience members is our

number one priority. New dates for the concerts

will be announced in due course.

People who already have tickets to the Summer

Sundown or Australia Day concerts will automatically

be advised by Moshtix on details of the rescheduled

events or how they may obtain a full refund (including

booking and transaction fees) should they be unable

to attend.

Chancellor to move on

Tributes to Peter Shergold, who will retire from his WSU post at year’s end

NICOLA BARTON

Western Sydney University Chancellor, Peter Shergold.

Western Sydney University

Chancellor, Peter Shergold has

announced he will retire at the

end of this year, after 12 years of service.

Professor Shergold has served as

Chancellor since 2011, continuing a

highly-respected career that has spanned

academia and Australian public life

for over 30 years, including serving as

Secretary of the Department of the Prime

Minister and Cabinet from 2003-2008.

Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor

Barney Glover, thanked Professor Shergold

for his leadership of the University’s

Board of Trustees, and acknowledged the

contributions he has made as Chancellor.

“Professor Shergold’s decades of knowledge

and wealth of experience have been

indispensable as he has strategically

shaped and guided the University through

an incredible period of change, growth

and development for more than a decade.

For this we owe him a debt of gratitude,”

he said.

“He has been one of the strongest and

most passionate advocates for this University,

our students, and the transformational

power of higher education, as well

as for the western Sydney region and its

diverse and vibrant communities.

“Among his many and varied achievements,

is his leadership of the Board to

oversee an ambitious program to leverage

University assets to build new educational

and research infrastructure.

“This program is co-creating cities

across western Sydney in partnership

with industry and government – not only

ensuring the University is a catalyst for

the region’s economic advancement and

social prosperity, but leaving the University

in a robust position to respond to

future challenges.”

In addition to his commitment to

the University, Professor Shergold has

provided a national contribution to policy

development and higher education in a

range of roles.

“On behalf of the Board of Trustees and

the broader University community, I

warmly thank Professor Shergold for his

outstanding service to Western Sydney

University, the sector, and to the western

Sydney region,” Professor Glover said.

“We look forward to working with him

over the next 12 months before his formal

retirement. He leaves a legacy that will be

felt across the University community for

decades to come.”

The Board of Trustees resolved at a meeting

late last year to establish a Chancellor

Nomination Committee to begin the

process of selecting and appointing a new

Chancellor.

The Board of Trustees expects to be able

to advise on the appointment of a new

Chancellor in August.

via Service NSW.

“It is pleasing to see that a variety of

indicators demonstrate that the spread

of COVID is slowing in the community,”

Dr Chant said last Friday.

“I want to thank the community and

acknowledge the actions of everyone in

contributing to that.”

Despite the pleasing news, Dr Chant

confirmed that she expects fatality

numbers to continue to be high in the

coming weeks.

“There is a significant lag in cases

being identified to when we see them

get hospitalised and when we see a small

number flow through, tragically, into

deaths,” she said.

“Therefore in this outbreak… we expect

to see a lag of two to three weeks. Unfortunately

the death numbers will likely

remain high but my message is that we

can turn that around with boosters…

and getting that booster with a real sense

of urgency.”

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Scott

Morrison has confirmed that isolation

periods for confirmed COVID cases

would remain at seven days.

“We’ve considered that again further

today, with medical advice from the

CMO, the Chief Medical Officer, and we

believe the settings are right at seven

days to ensure how we’re managing this

pandemic here in Australia,” Mr Morrison

said last Thursday.

“But that issue will remain under

constant review.”

Cancer Council’s first

Indigenous collaboration

to create a sun

protection collection,

the ‘Journey of

Hope’ by artist Riki Salam, aims

to spark important conversations

around cancer and how this serious

disease impacts First Nations

communities.

“Cancer is not an easy topic to

talk about. With the Journey of

Hope collection, we wanted to

reinforce the importance of this

conversation with both Indigenous

and non-Indigenous peoples and

demonstrate a simple way of getting

involved and supporting First

Nations communities with their

cancer journeys,” Mr Salam said.

The limited edition collection

features 15 beautifully-designed

swimwear pieces including rashies

and paddle suits for all ages

plus bright beach umbrellas and

cabanas to help protect skin from

harmful effects of sun exposure

and to keep Aussie families safe in

the sun.

As well as raising awareness, sales

will help fund Cancer Council’s

prevention and support programs

for Indigenous Australians. For

AUSTRALIA DAY – SPECIAL COVERAGE

Do something unique

Five great ways to celebrate our national day – from waterslides and wake

NICOLA BARTON

Whether it’s a game of cricket,

BBQ or day out with the

family, we all have our ways of

celebrating what makes us Australian on

January 26.

Whilst this year’s events are slightly

more restricted due to COVID-19, there’s

still plenty of things to see and do across

Greater Western Sydney that’s bound to

get you in the Aussie Day spirit, whilst

keeping the whole family entertained.

So grab your esky, zinc and a pair of

thongs for our top five things to do in

western Sydney on Australia Day.

Get up close and personal with our

native wildlife

What better way to celebrate what makes

us Australian than to explore our unique

and magnificent native creatures.

The Sydney Zoo at Bungarribee is a great

day out for families, couples, friends and

the like.

Here you can see a huge range of our

native furry friends like koalas and wallabies

or the not so cuddly such as echidnas,

spiders and reptiles.

Pack a picnic lunch or enjoy the Tiger

Pool Cafe or Lion Deck Cafe.

There’s also loads of exotic animals from

Africa and Asia to see.

If you’re wanting to get a bit more up

close and personal, Featherdale Sydney

Wildlife Park specialises in Australian

native wildlife and birds.

Cables Wake Park is a great place to celebrate Australia Day.

Happy

AUSTRALIA

Sydney Zoo adult tickets are on sale

online-only for $39.99 per adult and $19

for children three to 15-years-old. Featherdale

has specific Australia Day activities

on offer.

Bask in the Aussie sun and slip down

the slides at Raging Waters

It’s the closest thing we’ve got to a beach

6/9 Salisbury Road

Castle Hill

here out west but a day at Prospect’s

Raging Waters is what the summer Aussie

spirit is all about.

Whether you’re looking to laze by the

wave pool and work on your tan or get your

blood pumping on one of their 30 rides,

slides and attractions, there’s sure to be

something for all members of the family.

For the thrill seekers, test out your

Lace up your walking shoes for some

nature’s swimming pools.

Lake Parramatta Reserve, North

Parramatta; Hunts Creek Reserve,

Carlingford; Yarramundi Reserve, Yarramundi;

and Jelly Bean Pools, Glenbrook

are all standouts.

monitored by a lifeguard.

Parks and picnics for those on a budget

There’s plenty of spectacular playgrounds

and water splash parks around

the Greater Sydney region, bound to keep

the kids (and adults) cool and entertained

all day.

And what better way to celebrate

Australia Day than with an Aussie-style

picnic, complete with lamingtons and

sausage sandwiches of course!

Lake Parramatta Reserve.

A new water playground at Dawson-

Damer Park, Oran Park has a number of

water and non-water activities, including

community is what gives us

a sense of belonging. Over

time our ability to socialise

in our free time expands

whilst our community and

neighbourhoods are changing.

COVID-19 has had a

particularly strong influence

on people seeking different

needs from home design

and also their communities.

At Uniting, they realise

that confidence comes

from belonging and sharing

memorable moments with

like-minded people.

That’s why community and

caring are built in at every

Uniting NSW.ACT retirement

village. Moving into the next

phase of your life should be

an exciting occasion. Uniting

believes that everyone

should enjoy the confidence

of belonging.

AQUARIUS

JANUARY 21 TO FEBRUARY 19

The Sun and Saturn are in Aquarius,

and Mercury reverses through your sign

until Wednesday. So it will be a stop/

start kind of week. Your impulsive side

will be switched on one minute, only to

be disrupted or disappointed the next.

Don’t worry if your spontaneous approach

results in messy mistakes along

the way. In the words of French writer

Colette (who was born on January 28,

1873), “You will do foolish things but do

them with enthusiasm.”

HOROSCOPES

BROUGHT TO YOU BY BOHO ASTRO - JOANNE MADELINE MOORE

PISCES

FEBRUARY 20 TO MARCH 20

If you are responsible and well-informed,

then it will pay off further down

the track. But don’t put your head in the

sand and avoid facing problems, Pisces!

With Jupiter transiting through your sign

(which only happens every 12 years)

reach out to inspiring friends and influential

colleagues who are going places,

as you network up a storm. Your motto

is from this week’s birthday great Oprah

Winfrey, “Surround yourself with people

who are going to lift you higher.”

ARIES

MARCH 21 TO APRIL 20

There could be some conflict between

your professional and personal relationships,

as retrograde Venus highlights

your struggle to achieve ongoing balance

at work and home. With Jupiter

journeying through your spirituality

zone, have the confidence to follow your

intuition and listen to the wisdom of

your inner voice. As this week’s birthday

great Mozart declared, “I pay no attention

to anybody’s praise or blame. I simply

follow my own feelings.”

TAURUS

APRIL 21 TO MAY 21

This week looks rather chaotic, as retro

Mercury and retro Venus upset your previous

plans. So expect the unexpected –

especially involving work and/or travel.

It’s time to banish boredom and extend

yourself in challenging new directions.

With adventurous Jupiter and magical

Neptune activating your hopes and

wishes zone, your mantra is from birthday

great Oprah Winfrey, “The biggest

adventure you can ever take is to live the

life of your dreams.”

GEMINI

MAY 22 TO JUNE 21

CANCER

JUNE 22 TO JULY 22

LEO

JULY 23 TO AUGUST 23

VIRGO

AUGUST 24 TO SEPTEMBER 23

From Wednesday onwards, Mercury

(your ruling planet) reverses through

your money, shared resources, trust

and research zone. So slow down and

delay making important financial decisions

until after February 4. Plus check

(and re-check) any information you receive

thoroughly. And avoid blurting out

something inappropriate that unintentionally

hurts other people. Remember

– words are powerful weapons so make

sure you use them wisely.

You’re longing for some peace and

quiet but it won’t happen this week, as

six planets (the Sun, Saturn, fiery Mars,

powerful Pluto, retro Venus and retro

Mercury) complicate personal relationships.

So don’t feel slighted if someone

shocks you, ignores you, or comes on

too strong and is super demanding. Just

take it in your Crab stride! A friend or

lover from the past could also re-enter

your life … but do you really want to

travel down that bumpy road again?

Leos love to be leaders. But this week

you need to ask yourself “Am I are leading

others (with passion and purpose) or

just bossing them around?” If you power

ahead without considering others, then

you’ll just create unnecessary angst.

So strive to accommodate the needs of

those around you. When it comes to a

close friend or work colleague, take the

time to walk a mile in their shoes. Then

you’ll have some understanding of what

they’re going through.

The focus is on improving partnerships

(whether of the romantic, platonic or

business variety) as you manage relationships

with extra tact and diplomacy.

It’s time to envision your dreams for the

future, formulate your goals, and consolidate

any travel plans you have in the

pipeline. But be adaptable Virgo! It’s important

to realise that current situations

are in a state of flux, and the plans you

make now will need to be significantly

altered at a later date.

LIBRA

SEPTEMBER 24 TO OCTOBER 23

SCORPIO

OCTOBER 24 TO NOVEMBER 22

SAGITTARIUS

NOVEMBER 23 TO DECEMBER 21

CAPRICORN

DECEMBER 22 TO JANUARY 20

Librans possess a talent for procrastination,

which is made worse by Mercury

and Venus being retrograde. If you have

a passion that you want to pursue (or a

decision that needs to be made) then

resist being distracted by other people’s

agendas. Decisive action is best taken

from Saturday onwards, when Venus

(your patron planet) finally moves forwards.

As birthday great Oprah Winfrey

observes, “Feel the power that comes

from focusing on what excites you.”

Are you experiencing problems with

a loved one? If you keep doing what

you’re doing, then you’ll just keep getting

what you’re getting! The Sun, Mars,

Saturn, Pluto, retrograde Mercury and

retrograde Venus are all activating your

family zones, so it’s time to make the first

tentative moves towards reconciliation.

Yep … when it comes to difficult relatives

and complicated domestic matters,

the Scorpio lesson for this week is ‘Forgiveness’.

The planets stir up trouble (and agitate

obsessions) in your communication

zone. So someone could unsettle you

by passing on scandalous second-hand

news. If you’re a smart Sagittarian then

you’ll steer clear of garrulous gossip,

especially online. Plus avoid over-reacting

when a frustrated family member

pushes your emotional buttons. With

Mars moving into your money zone on

Monday, be proactive about finding new

ways to boost your bank balance.

You’ve got so many serious responsibilities,

commitments and must-do-tasks

that the last thing you need is a financial

drama. But that’s what you could end

up with, as Saturn and retrograde Mercury

shake up your money zone. Saturn

(your patron planet) encourages you to

be cautious and conservative in the way

you spend cash and communicate with

other people. So – when it comes to finances

and business matters – slow and

steady wins the race this week!

LEGENDS PLAYING

MUSIC OF LEGENDS

EMILY FESZCZUK

“Friends playing music that inspires

them” is how former Powderfinger

guitarist Darren Middleton describes

his latest collaborative project

to Parra News.

Darren, as part of the Australian Rock

Collective (ARC), will present Neil Young’s

hit album ‘Harvest’ live in concert at Sydney

Coliseum to celebrate its 50th anniversary.

Sharing a passion for rock and roll

that spans decades, Darren is joined by

members of legendary Australian bands,

Mark Wilson (Jet), Davey Lane (You Am I)

and Kram (Spiderbait).

“A friend of mine in the sports industry

had asked if I was interested in putting a

group together to play music for the soccer

World Cup in Brazil, and it didn’t take

much arm twisting to get the guys on

board,” Darren said.

“We realised how natural it felt to play

together, so a few years later when all the

bands and albums that we loved were

turning 50 we decided to put some gigs

together.”

Darren said his old band had sparked his

appreciation for Neil Young’s classics.

“When I joined Powderfinger they did

half covers and half original music, but

they focused a bit on Young’s work that got

me into that scene of music,” he said.

“That ‘70s folk rock sound was so cool,

and Neil had this incredible balance of

beauty and real, raw primal energy within

that, which attracted me.”

Presenting the 1972 album ‘Harvest’ in

its entirety, ARC will then perform a selection

of songs from the rock master’s career.

“We have crossed paths with the bands

of these albums we pay homage to and

have had similar experiences, so there

will be a lot of storytelling when we do this

show,” Darren said.

“I am excited but when you haven’t done

something for a while you might doubt

yourself, but we have to trust in our process,

and I know it will be awesome.”

Successful musicians in their own rights,

Darren said fans of both new and old rock

music will enjoy what is on offer.

“If people like our bands they will still

get a sense of our personalities as well because

we do not replicate it note for note,”

he said.

“We treat it like art and make sure our interpretation

still maintains the integrity of

the original work.”

If you’re a music lover, this is the perfect

event to enjoy right here in western Sydney.

‘Harvest Live’ will be on at Sydney Coliseum

Theatre in Rooty Hill on Saturday,

February 19. Tickets are from $66.20. To

book or for more information, call 9851

5912 or visit sydneycoliseum.com.au.

TV NEWS

Clear your schedule because three

huge reality shows are about to go head

to head in the coming weeks. Channel

Seven has confirmed event series ‘The

Voice: Generations’ will premiere on

Monday, January 31. On the same night,

Channel Nine will launch the new series

of ‘Married at First Sight’, while 10 will

drop ‘Australian Survivor: Blood v Water’.

After a lack of quality TV viewing over

summer, I’m looking forward to the next

few weeks in front of the box.

Popular ABC quiz show ‘Hard Quiz’,

hosted by comedian Tom Gleeson, returns

with new episodes on Wednesday,

February 2 at 8pm. Meanwhile, the new

series of ‘Shaun Micallef’s Mad as Hell’

premieres immediately after at 8.30pm.

A cute little show started on the ABC

last weekend called ‘Muster Dogs’. The

four-part series follows five Kelpie puppies

from the same litter on their journey

to become muster dogs. Narrated by Lisa

Miller, the pups are sent to five graziers

around Australia who will each try to get

their pup up to speed in just 12 months.

It airs Sunday nights on the ABC, with

JANUARY 31

THE VOICE: GENERATIONS, SEVEN

STREAMING

MUSTER DOGS, ABC

all episodes also available to stream on

iView.

If you’re looking for love, ‘The Bachelor’

is seeking single men and women to

apply. You must be aged between 23-40

and be available for filming from May to

July. To apply, visit go.mycastingnet.com/

apply/show/TheBachelorAustralia2022.

Meanwhile, recent ‘Bachelorette’ star

Brooke Blurton confirmed she has split

from winner Darvid Garayeli, less than six

weeks after the series finale aired. Tragic!

US firefighter drama ‘Station 19’ has

been renewed for a sixth season in the

US, while ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ will be back

for a whopping 19th season!

Apple TV+ series ‘Morning Wars’ has

been renewed for a third season, while

Netflix juggernaut ‘Emily in Paris’ is sticking

around for at least two more seasons.

Finally, terribly sad news during the

recent summer break with comedic legend

and ‘Full House’ star Bob Saget tragically

passing away in his sleep just hours

after performing a comedy set in Florida.

Like many people my age, I grew up

watching Saget on one of my all-time favourite

shows ‘Full House’. Saget played

Danny Tanner, a widower raising three

daughters in San Francisco. 20 years after

the original ‘Full House’ series ended,

Saget reprised his role in the Netflix series

‘Fuller House’. It was both heart-warming

and heart-breaking seeing the entire cast

attend his funeral last weekend – further

proving just how much he meant to every

single one of them. Bob, thanks for the

laughs… you’ll be missed.

History to be made at CommBank

NATHAN TAYLOR

Some sporting history will be made in

Parramatta next month when new Super

Rugby Pacific franchise, Fijian Drua,

open the 2022 season at CommBank Stadium.

The Round 1 blockbuster against the NSW

Waratahs will take place on Friday, February

18.

Fijian Drua CEO Brian Thorburn said

although it’s an ‘away match’ for his club, both

the Drua and Waratahs recognise the historic

nature of the game in the heart of western

Sydney.

“It will be an honour for the first ever

Swire Shipping (major sponsor) Fijian Drua

matchday 23 players to run out onto the field

on February 18 at CommBank Stadium in

Parramatta, proudly representing Fiji and

Fijians everywhere,” he said.

“The 25-year dream and this incredible journey

we’ve been waiting for will finally become

a reality and it will be a moment to remember

for years to come.”

With the Waratahs set to have a clear advantage

supporter-wise for the opening fixture,

Thorburn is encouraging all Fijians to turn out

for the important clash, and to support his side

when they’re in Australia.

“We’re calling on Fijian fans and rugby

supporters to come in numbers, paint

CommBank Stadium blue and fill it with

the sounds of Fiji,” he said.

“Let’s show the rugby world what it

means for Fiji to have its own team in

Super Rugby.”

In further good news for local supporters,

the Drua have announced that the

highly-anticipated Round 13 match

against fellow debutant and Pacific

vuvale Moana Pasiifika will also be

played in Parramatta on May 14.

“This will undoubtedly be a match for

the ages as the Drua and Moana go head

to head, Thorburn said.

“Friendships and kava will flow after

the match, but it will be fierce action

on the field with high energy and high

impact rugby that Pacific Islanders are

renowned for.

“The boys are chomping at the bit for

this particular match, which will serve

a treat for Fijian, Samoan, Tongan and

other Pacific fans alike.”

Tickets for the upcoming February

18 match against the Waratahs at

CommBank Stadium will be available
