Budding young inventor

A Tecoma primary student has won the opportunity to make her own invention a reality after taking out the top prize in ClickView Aussie Student Invention award. 11-year-old Daisy Taylor from Tecoma Primary School invented a wearable flotation device designed with non-verbal autistic children in mind. The T-shirt – called the Sea Tee - features a flotation device and a sensor that allows children to play and swim safely; even if they can’t communicate they are tired. Daisy said while her cousin Tim helped inspire the idea, she wanted to help people with her invention.

Game on for Casey

Since the 2010 Federal election the Greens have won over 10 per cent of the primary vote in four successive elections in the Casey electorate. Jenny Game is hoping to build upon that foundation when long term Liberal MP Tony Smith retires from politics and leaves a vacuum to be filled. After winning 10.93 per cent of the primary vote at the 2019 federal election, the musician and academic has decided to again run as the Greens candidate for Casey.
