ORGANISATIONS from across
Phillip Island banded together
to support the Handstands for
Hayden event at Newhaven Col-
lege on Sunday, raising funds for
Rhyll’s Hayden Marshall, who
was left paralysed after a tram-
poline accident in September.
After 194 days, Hayden re-
turned home on Thursday in
time for the event and his trade-
mark smile warmed the hearts of
those in attendance.
The Pierce Brothers wowed the
audience on stage during the af-
ternoon, while a sea of kids and
parents joined the handstand
record attempt in the afternoon.
Hayden took to the stage to
thank his family, friends and the
community for their generosity
and all of the support he has re-
ceived since his accident.
He will now spend two weeks
on the Gold Coast for intensive
therapy as part of his ongoing re-

PHILLIP Island Nature Parks
is one of the cornerstone organi-
sations of Bass Coast Shire.
Their philosophy of conserva-
tion and providing lasting and
educational experiences makes
a valuable and significant contri-
bution our community.
I would like to congratulate
them on their recent milestone,
celebrating their 20th birthday.
In the past 20 years, they have
welcomed over 15.5 million visi-
tors and at the same time done
an amazing job to look after and
nurture our coastline, flora and
It makes me immensely proud
and excited to see what the next
20 years will bring.
Another historical event was
recognised recently in Sale, at
the unveiling of a memorial stat-

The bronze statue portrays a
glowing mother looking down
at her newborn, and commem-
orates the 2013 National Par-
liamentary apology to mothers
who, during the 1950s to 1970s,
were separated from their ba-
bies at birth and forced to give
them up for adoption.
The sculpture is a fine example
of public art intended to move
us, educate us and remind us.
It is small and beautiful, yet
has a very powerful message.
It was a poignant ceremony
and although the statue lies out-
side of Bass Coast, I wanted to
acknowledge the suffering and
heartbreak these women en-
dured across the country.
To finish on a more upbeat
note, I must share the delightful
time I had during recent ques-
tion and answers sessions at
San Remo and Wonthaggi North
I was thrilled to meet with
some of our bright and inquisi-
tive Grade 3 to 6 students.
Although I had prepared some
information and notes, you can
never be prepared for the wit
and imagination of young peo-
ple, and there were certainly a
few questions which took me by
surprise – “How old are you?”
being just one of them! It was
lovely to be asked things I don’t
usually hear in my day-to-day
activities as Mayor.
Handstanding for Hayden
Hayden took to the stage to thank his family, friends and
the community for their generosity and all of the support he
has received since his accident.
Hayden Marshall and his family were surrounded
by friends at Handstands for Hayden. Here they
caught up with the Taylor family from Cowes.
Lauren, Darren, Danny and Bronny were just some of the Newhaven
College staff and community volunteers who helped to make the day a
Melbourne duo The Pierce Brothers entertained the
crowd at Handstands for Hayden.
Hayden and Rebecca Wilson from the YMCA turned the crowd upside down for Hayden’s
Warren and Patika Reed had a ball on the Billy carts that
were supplied by one of many Scout groups who organised
The Cowes CWA’s Devonshire tea team were kept busy at Hand-
stands for Hayden on Sunday.
Amara Pittorino, Vivienne Rose-Vance and Mackenzie Marr were amongst the crowd at
Handstands for Hayden.
