File pic.Walcha Central School is supporting ‘Mental Health Month’ which is celebrated every year in NSW during the month of October. The aim is to encourage all of us, whether we have experienced mental illness or not, to learn and understand the importance of looking after our mental health and wellbeing.

According to the World Health Organisation; “mental health is the state of wellbeing in which every person can cope with the normal stresses of life, work productively and contribute to their community” (WHO, 2014). The message is simple and very important: We should all learn about mental health, know about our thoughts and feelings and take action to improve our mental wellbeing.

We all have our own way of seeing ourselves, the world and other people. No matter how hard it can be, it is important to listen to different views. It can motivate us to learn more about our mental health and explain misunderstandings that can stop us from seeking help.

Sometimes our biggest priority will be getting some help for things that are causing us problems or for changes in the way we are feeling and thinking. Often a good first step is having a chat to a local doctor who can refer you to someone who can help.

At Walcha Central School we have a passion for sharing knowledge and we want to do this by connecting socially during a range of activities including laughter yoga,a mental health forum anda colour run on October 13.We would like to invite you to come and join us in the fun so pleasecontact the school for more details.

Colour run nomination forms can be collected fromthe Walcha Council, Walcha Information Centre or Walcha Central School.The cost per participant is a gold coin donation.

Tackling cyber bullies

ANTI-BULLYING: Cyber safety expert Susan McLean knows firsthand how scary the online world can be for parents and children.

Susan McLean’s no-nonsense approach to cyber bullying is keeping our kids safer in the online world.

The cyber safety expert was in Launceston on Wednesday to speak with parents and students about how to navigate websites, social media and apps.

Ms McLean worked for several years as a police officer and through her work, has seen the horrors that unfold online each day.

She said parents today hadsafety in the real world grasped, such as teaching their childrennot to speakto strangers or not to leave the front door open, but it was a different story online.

“The same parent or child who has a grasp on real-life safety goes totally the opposite online,” Ms McLean said.

“You might engage with someone you don’t know online, so if a stranger came to your door wouldn’t let them in but you do online.”

She said that while kids might be tech-savvy, they did not appreciate the risks they faced.

MsMcLean said that whileTasmania was oncea safe place from the rest of the world due to its remoteness, that was not the case anymore.

“The whole world is now in Launceston through the internet,” she said.

“All the amazing people you can connect with are here, but all the not so amazing people that physically couldn’t get to Launceston because it’s a long way away can come into your child’s world through the internet.”

With social media sites growing by the day, students are faced with making decisions never thought about before.

“The main issue is cyber bullying –being harassed and humiliated and abused online or having photos that you might have shared in trust re-posted,” Ms McLean said.

Ms McLean’s message to parents is simple –be the parent.

“You are not your child’s best friend, you are their parent and you need to make those parental decisions,” she said.

“If a site has an age restriction, obey it, it’s there for your benefit and it is the site saying young people can’t come there.

“Use the security setting the sites offer you –Facebook, Instagram and Twitter have security settings but they don’t help if you don’t use them.”

Ms McLean said parents should block unfriendly users, copy the information and report them to the site.

Darley Football Club has been left with a significant void to fill following the departure of 2015 Henderson medallist and star player Steve Kennedy.

Kennedy will return to his junior club Altona, where he played in its 2012 one-point grand final victory,after three seasons with the Devils.

The classy midfielder won Darley’s best and fairest medal the past two seasons as well as beingnamed in the Ballarat Football League’s team of the year in both years.

Darley football manager Craig Baker said it was a “huge loss” for the club but understood the ever-present temptation to return to his home club.

“We understand. It was a very hard decision for him but he weighed it all upand he just lent towards playing with his mates and that’s something he’s wanted to do for a while,” Baker said.

“He’s really well liked and respected around the club and he’ll be a huge loss.”

Despite the disappointment, the club will quickly turn its attention to replacing the elusive onballer.

While Baker concedes trying to replace a player of Kennedy’s calibre is a tough ask,the club will begin searching for players to add to its midfield rotationduring the off-season.

“You can’t dwell on these things and we’re going to have to try and get someone to replace him.”

After winning the 2015 premiership, Darley were hit hard by injury and never got its season fully back on track after losing its first four matches, qualifying for the finals in sixth positionalbeit four games behind fifth.

It was eventually knocked out by Sunbury in the elimination final.

“We dropped off last year, but we had a lot of injuries. Touch wood all those players will be back this year. They’re 15 of the main players that played in our premiership team.

“We don’t think it’ll take a lot of players for us to rebound.”

Kennedy played 17 matches in 2016 and was named among the best on 11 occasions.

The untimely departure deals former Carlton star and new Darley coach Heath Scotland an early blow.

The 200-game AFLplayer and former Darley junior will have the challenge of returning the Devils to the top of the Ballarat Football League ladder.

Scotland returns to Darley Park after two years with Doncaster in the Eastern Football League, having joined the Sharks after retiring from Carlton in 2014.

Scotland fills the vacancy left by Jarrod Edwards, who coached the Devils for three years – taking them to their first BFL premiership in 2015.
