SATURDAY morning saw a peaceful
walk and talk in Gawler between Nick
Xenophon and Islamic Society of
South Australia president Dr Waleed
The two high-profile leaders were
discussing current events and the issues
surrounding religion and race conflicts that
have been occurring worldwide.
This is a big deal for our little town,
Gawler; hopefully, more talks and friendly
walks will take place in the future.
THE Gawler Cup was held on Sunday,
the day was warm and windy but
everyone who attended and were
involved had a great day.
Rose Ampt won the Fashions on the
Field and she progresses to the Fashion at
the Races state final, and to, hopefully, win
a nice, new Alfa Romeo.
SHEA-OAK Log's Georgi Mollet
competed in a statewide cheerleading
competition held in Adelaide last Sunday.
Georgi, aged 11, trains with the
Nailsworth-based Adelaide All Stars
On the weekend, Georgi and her team
came third in the 'pom' routine and also
third in the 'cheer' routine.
Recycle, reduce, reuse
THE Gawler Community Gallery's latest
exhibition features and promotes the use
of recycled and found materials.
Works on display have been made out of
various materials, including denim, wood,
metal, nuts and bolts and some even put
together to make sculptures.
A featured piece is by Steve Oatway and
is a metal sculpture that took out a prize at
the exhibition's opening.
The Gawler Community Gallery is at
the Gawler train station, Twenty Third
Street, and is open Thursday until Sunday
Car park mural
DO yourself a favour and brighten your
day by heading to the top of the multi-
storey car park near Woolworths.
Once there, you'll see murals with bright
groovy colours and even some local faces
painted on the mural.
Robet Surprise Designs is responsible for
one of the murals, aptly titled 'Gawler',
which is mainly purple with red and
Young local band Brutha N I, made up
of brothers Scott and Jake Rathman, are
featured, so too is Kim Wright, from the
Gawler Children's Centre, a fitting tribute
for all her hard work around town.

doing some digging to find a miss-
ing time capsule from 1985 before its
50th anniversary celebrations later this
The only information on the the time
capsule's location is that it is situated "near
the oval", and organisers are seeking help
to pinpoint it.
A time capsule burried in 1995 has been
located and items from that will be on
display at celebrations.
Current students have also been busy
preparing material for a new time capsule
to commemorate the event.
Celebrations will take place over two
days on October 24 and 25 and will
feature a range of activities, including a
birthday cake presentation.
Entertainment will be provided
through the current school choir, a dance
performance and the SA Police School
Tours of both the original school (now
Immanuel Lutheran School) and the
current school will also be available and
there will be a tree-planting session for
both old and young students.
Anyone with information about the time
capsule's location can contact the school
