Team Summer

Hi,

We are a local WWP family. Our daughter is 15years old and has mild cerebral palsy and is vision impaired (reduced visual field). Summer has achieved some amazing things in her life so far including a recent bronze medal for NSW in the Australian national all schools athletics championships in Adelaide in the u16 girls para long jump. Mucht of Summers Appetite to achieve her dreams is because of the amazing support we have received from the cerebral palsy alliance.

In February, as a family we will support Summer in one of her biggest challenges yet to climb to the top of Mount Kosciuszko. The challenge is an event to raise funds for the Cerebral Palsy Alliance to raise funds for their accessible gym and Fitness Program. The program promotes fitness, strength, and independence for people with cerebral palsy, and funds raised will be used at CPA facilities across Sydney, including their centre at Smalls Rd, Ryde where Summer has received support since she was 4years old.

Summer has set a fundraising goal of $5000 dollars and we would be really appreciative of any support from the Wentworth Point local community. We have brainstormed some ideas for fundraising and I am happy to approach local businesses, but was hoping there might be a contact I can speak with here that could help us with some advise and other suggestions.

More information and Summers team fundraising page can be viewed via the following address https://www.krazykosciklimb.com.au/my-fundraising/1166/summers-krazy-kosci-klimb

Kind Regards,
Team Summer

The Krazy Kosci Klimb is an empowering challenge event for young people living with cerebral palsy or other disability.

WWP Trolley Clean Up

The residents of Wentworth Point have decided to start cleaning up the area from the hundreds of dumped trolleys since council and retailers are failing at finding a solution to this issue. Please join us at 8am on Saturday morning to collect trolleys around your apartment blocks, Hill Rd, bushland and streets and walk them over the bridge back to the Rhodes side. The retailers can then organise their collection from that point.

Malicious Damage is a senseless and often inconvenient and expensive crime for the victim. Below are steps you should take if you become a victim of malicious damage.

1/ PHOTOGRAPH the damage. Whether it is graffiti, an egging incident, or whether they have smashed a window or broken your letterbox. You can keep the photograph for your own records, if your insurance company wishes to see them, or if police contact you at a later stage to look at the damage themselves.

2/ CHECK if there is any CCTV Footage in the area where the damage occurred or if you have any witnesses to the incident such as a neighbour.

3/ CONSIDER if you have any suspects in mind. Has someone previously threatened to slash your tyres for example?

4/ CALL the Police Assistance Line on 131 444 (24/7) to make a report over the phone and obtain an EVENT NUMBER. You will need an event number to make an insurance claim.

You can also now easily and conveniently report instances of MALICIOUS DAMAGE through the NSW Police Force Community Portal at https://portal.police.nsw.gov.au/

Great to see the WP school starting to deliver for our community! It’s been a long time coming!













Our first Kindergarten Orientation session with the children was fantastic. While the children spent time with the teachers, parents listened to an information session from the Cancer Council about packing a Healthy Lunchbox. Afterwards they experienced some of the learning activities their children will be experiencing. They left with lots of ideas to try at home. Looking forward to doing it all again on Wednesday 6 December 9.15 – 10.45.
