Merit for Madeline
NURIOOTPA High School's
Madeline Hegarty has been
recognised as one of the state's
top achievers, named as one
of only 27 year 12 students to
receive a 2016 Governor of South
The highly acclaimed award
recognises excellence in year 12
SACE subjects, and in the qualities
young people need for community
life, citizenship and work.
Madeline, of Greenock, said
she was surprised to learn of the
award, along with her high ATAR
score of 97.5, announced shortly
"I opened my year 12 results, then,
literally, 45 minutes later I got a
phone call from the SACE chief
executive," she said.
"It was a huge surprise -- I was
over the moon.
"It was a really amazing morning."
Madeline was one of five
Nuriootpa High School year 12
students to receive four As for
her subjects in 2016, receiving
Merits and a perfect 20 score for
both Psychology and her Research
Her Research Project discussed
humanitarian initiatives and their
role in creating sustainable change
in a developing country -- a topic
the 18-year-old wants to pursue for
"I learned from a young age that I
really want to work with people,
and especially people that are
disadvantaged, compared to the
life that I've been lucky enough to
live," Madeline said.
"...My goal would be to work
with a not-for-profit organisation,
like Raw Impact or even World
Madeline has applied to study for a
Bachelor of Intercultural Studies at
Tabor College, starting mid-year,
but is also looking forward to a
four-month stint in Cambodia, with
Raw Impact, from March.
Last year she received an
Honourable Award in the 2016
Children's Week Minister for
Education and Child Development
Awards, the Lions Club of the
Barossa Valley Coulthard Prize
for all-round academic success,
and the overall Student Citizenship
Award for South Australia.
"Going through year 12, I just told
myself, I really wanted to enjoy it,
to not just be stressed and bogged
down with work and let that get to
me," Madeline said.
"So I made sure, even when I
had assignments and tests at the
same time, to just take it step by
step and to focus on one thing at a
time and to not let the big picture
"And I made sure to keep balance
-- I wouldn't get home every night
and spend four hours straight doing
homework; I balanced that with
sport or with work and family and

"Respondents also said the water lane,
which runs parallel to Adelaide Road
-- between Sixth and Seventh streets
-- is a real haven for loitering and
According to the survey, 32 per cent of
business owners said improvements to
CCTV would reduce vandalism, while
21.5 per cent claim it would improve
property security and a further 19 per
cent said it would reduce violence.
"I think most of the responses were
valid. There's definitely security
issues within the CBD of Gawler and
surrounds," Mrs Brougham said.
"There's a lot of loitering happening at
certain times of the day, and there's a
few groups of people who are loitering
and causing issues.
"We've had issues with people
creating a nuisance in businesses, and
on the weekend, with police being
called to respond to those issues."
Last last year, Gawler Council denied
claims its closed circuit television
(CCTV) cameras along Murray Street
were non-operational, after clothing
store Forever Lee Gawler failed to
identify thieves who broke in and stole
clothing stock from the store.
Mrs Brougham said Gawler business
staff and customers need to feel safe
where they work.
"We need to have a central business
district that people feel safe to come to
for work and shopping," she said.
"Anything that we can do that's going
to be monitored, so that we can have a
quick response when there is an issue,

Madeline Hegarty in Adelaide, on receiving news of her Governorʼs
GAWLER'S recent measles
outbreak has prompted the State
Government to introduce proposed
new laws that would give childcare
centres the right to turn away
In a statement to The Bunyip, Health
Minister Jack Snelling said the
outbreak in Gawler played a role in
cementing his decision to push ahead
with the new legislation, which is
expected to be introduced into State
Parliament early next year.
The sixth locally acquired measles
case in Gawler was confirmed in
November, bringing the total of
confirmed cases in South Australia
to 11 reported cases of measles,
compared with four last year.
"It's pretty alarming when you consider
the amount of cases we had in SA,
compared to 2015," Mr Snelling said.
"The outbreak in Gawler certainly
played a role in cementing my
decision to push ahead with this type
"At the absolute minimum the
changes will make it very clear that
childcare centres and kindys have the
legal right to turn away children who
Gawler Mayor Karen Redman supported
the move, claiming local vaccination
rates are above the national average.
"Any improvements in vaccination
rates and measures to encourage
people to vaccinate their children is a
good thing in my view," she said.
