Mayor Karen Redman
The Mayor's Young Women's Leadership Program is a voluntary program that combines
leadership development with a mentor/sponsor relationship to create an unprecedented
forum for exposure to a broad range of local female leaders and, hence, the development of
the participant's leadership skills. The program employs a blended learning methodology
based around peer knowledge-sharing, practical workplace experiences in a variety of
settings and personal refection.

Throughout the six-month program,
learning outcomes are related back
to the day-to-day challenges of each
participant ensuring maximum 'on-
the-job’ applicability. This process is
further enhanced through the mentor/
sponsor relationship. Students enhance
their confdence and capabilities whilst
developing lasting connections with
their peers. Throughout the program,
students generate personal Action
Plans with the support of their mentor/
sponsor. This process assists students
to operationalise learning outcomes
It is envisaged that there will be
opportunities to meet with the Mayor
that will explore career focus to ensure
that participants capitalise on the
program with an optimal understanding
of their own aspirations and strengths
as they relate to realising their potential.
This program is voluntary and will run
for approximately six months.

SIR -- I write to you in my capacity as the
CEO of Royal Life Saving Society -- Austra-
lia, to ask all readers to take the greatest of
care when children are in or around water.
Royal Life Saving's latest campaign, 'Keep
Watch', urges all parents not to be compla-
cent about their child's safety around water.
Our latest research shows that 461 children
under the age of five have died in Australia
over the past 15 years due to drowning.
Of these, half the drownings were in home
pools or spas.
In 100 per cent of child drowning cases in
home swimming pools, active adult supervi-
sion had either lapsed or was entirely absent.
Water is only safe when you are watching.
Distractions, like answering the phone, at-
tending to another child or going inside brief-
ly to grab something, can have absolutely
tragic consequences if a toddler is left unat-
tended near water.
An average of 31 children tragically drown
For every toddler drowning death, approxi-
mately 10 children are admitted to hospital as
a result of non-fatal drowning.
Drowning is preventable.
We ask all readers to follow the four Keep
Watch key actions to prevent toddler drown-
ing: always actively supervise all children
around water, regularly check and maintain
your pool fence and gate, teach children wa-
ter awareness, and learn CPR.
One recent study showed that in 62 per
cent of cases, the child had gained access to
the pool area through a faulty fence or gate
or through a gate that had been deliberately
We stress to readers the importance of reg-
ularly checking and maintaining their pool
fence and gate to ensure it's in working order.
We ask all parents to take every precaution
when it comes to their child's safety around
water. Readers can obtain tips and resources
I wish all readers a happy and safe summer.
CEO, Royal Life Saving Society -- Australia.
SIR -- It appears that our State Government
is paying little heed to the Opposition's plea
to the present Labor electorate to correct its
blindness, which is inadvertently wrecking
Because of our State Government's gro-
tesque lack of priorities, Adelaide is currently
in a shocking state.
Much of the suburban roadworks is lying
for endless months in disrepair in the most
importantly-needed traffic regions.
This means that not only is the blunder of
using inferior material to make water pipes,
causing Adelaide to have the world's worst
record for burst water mains, another such re-
cord is nigh with much of the western suburbs
now unnavigable for any traffic.
At least one-third of South Road can't be
used, except for a very slow route to An-
zac Highway. And this has been so not for
months, but for over a year!
From South Road there are no right turns
into Regency, Torrens, Port and Grange
There are no signposts on South Road for
Henley Beach Road, nor are there any sign-
posts for Port Road on Tapleys Hill Road.
So, for a newcomer, even your satnav
wouldn't work entirely.
Many going to the airport are now going
out of their way via Military Road, in case
there is no right turn from South Road onto
Henley Beach Road.
And not only are our hospitals in a
jam due to the old Royal's non-use, but
Victoria Square is a mess with its structure
facing Grote Street looking like a chicken
That, with the Elder Park Torrens, which
formerly had much charm, but now looking
like a baby's bath-tub, along with their de-
stroying of some of our invaluably precious
old trams, surely our voters will opt for a
better government, instead of the incumbent
variety which apparently has trouble knowing
