A SUCCESSFUL fundraiser was held
at the Rhyll hall recently, for the Ne -
whaven College World Challenge 2016
expedition to Mongolia later this year,
with some great entertainment provid-
ed by students from the school.
Imogen Price, who is a talented sing-
er and guitarist, sang a number of her
And the band, known as Parallel
Parking, comprising local and extreme -
ly talented musicians and singers, was
a great hit with the crowd present.
Funds from the highly successful
evening will go toward the World Chal-
lenge student-led expedition to Mon-
Overseas community projects are a
major focus of the expeditions, with
teams from World Challenge globally
working on over 275 project sites in
developing countries every year.
The World Challenge experience sees
the learning process begin long before
students step foot on a plane, as the
program has them engaged in planning
their team’s itinerary and raising funds
for their overseas expedition months
in advance, as well as planning the aid
project they will be involved in.
HORROR at the Seaside Garden Home for Boys in
April 1996: Journalist and playwright, Joe Fairhurst,
began searching for the truth into the killings of two
little boys at Newhaven, Phillip Island.
Twenty years later his search continues through a
quagmire of greed, politics and a justice system that
tragically cut short at least two lives and left thou-
sands of other boys and girls mentally and physically
scarred for life.
Joe has uncovered numerous truths along the way
and feels close to fitting together the final pieces in this
jigsaw of horror.
He is looking forward to April 13 when he meets and
discusses this search for the truth at the next meeting
of the Phillip Island and District Historical Society.
Since daylight saving will have ended by then, the
meeting will be held at 2.30pm in the Heritage Cen-
tre meeting room, 89 Thompson Ave Cowes. All are

A world challenge worth singing about
Kevin Wagner, Gerald Jeffery and Donald Dixon (pictured) go back a very long
way, having been to Cowes Primary School together in the 1940’s.
The trio all celebrated their 80th birthdays recently.
PHILLIP Islanders and good friends
Kevin Wagner, Donald Dixon and Gerald
Jeffery celebrated their 80th birthdays
within two weeks of each other recently.
The three men have known each other
since they attended Cowes and Ventnor
Primary Schools, many long years ago.
Kevin and Gerald attended the Cowes
Primary School in the early 1940s, when
it was just two rooms situated on the site
of the present Cowes Cultural Centre.
Donald went to Ventnor Primary, but
competed against Kevin and Gerald at
The trio later played footy together with
the Phillip Island Football Club, winning
premierships with the 1962 and 1964
Gerald was born on Churchill Island,
and has lived on Churchill and Phillip Is-
lands for all of his life until recently, when
he retired to live at Korumburra.
Don grew up on Ventnor on a farm, and
has farmed a Ventnor dairy property for
all of his life, retiring from dairying last
Kevin Wagner arrived in Cowes with his
family in 1945, and was the well-known
local butcher on the corner of Chapel
Street and Thompson Avenue for all of
his working life, until his retirement.
These days, he can often be found on
the bowling greens.
Kevin celebrated his birthday at the
bowls club. ‘Don’s Party’ took place at
the football club, and Gerald celebrated
at Churchill Island, which his parents
farmed when he was young.
