School’s out for year 12s
by Stephanie Gropler
Loxton High School year 12
students will be able to breathe a
sigh of relief, with the last exam
taking place today.
Musicianship students will sit their exam
this afternoon, while most exams took
place last week, signalling the end of the
2014 subject testing period.
Loxton High School senior pathways
co-ordinator Michael Zdanowicz said the
students should be proud of their efforts
throughout the year.
“The general impression I have got is
that the students have been very happy
with the exams themselves, but also their
own performance in the exams,” he said.
“They are a very strong cohort and we
are certainly expecting some nice news.”
Year 12 students will now await their
results, which are expected to be released
on Thursday, December 18.
Mr Zdanowicz said there was a wide
range of university and TAFE courses,
along with apprenticeships that students
had applied for this year.
Year 12 student Kelsey Jachmann said
she was thankful exams were over and was
looking forward to her next few weeks of
“I will probably just relax, work, get
some money and get ready to go to
Adelaide,” she said.
Despite nerves prior to the exam, Kelsey
enjoyed her final year 12 assessment.
“I thought the physical education exam
was good, I liked it,” she said.
The main round of university offers will
take place on Thursday, January 15.

Mighty River Run
arrives in Loxton
The Loxton riverfront was awash with 39
boats yesterday and Monday, as the West
End Mighty River Run arrived in town.
The annual event, which is held to recognise the
fundraising efforts by crews for Novita Children’s
Services, arrived in Loxton on Monday afternoon
and crews enjoyed dinner at the Loxton Historical
Village before departing yesterday morning.
Novita Children’s Services general manager for
strategic relationships and fundraising Richard
Bithell said over $350,000 had been raised so far.
“Most of these crews have been fundraising over
the last three to five months, but this trip isn’t about
fundraising,” he said.
“This is about the reward, but it is also really
important that we recognise the work that we do in
regional South Australia.”
In the past seven years, the West End Mighty River
Run has raised more than $750,000 and Mr Bithell
said it was a “fantastic result”, as this year tipped the
fundraising mark over $1 million.
Mr Bithell said the crews “thoroughly enjoyed”
their time in Loxton.
“We have people staying in cabins (at the Loxton
Riverfront Holiday Park), along with people staying
in town, so we are trying to use the local regional
services wherever we can.”
Novita is South Australia’s largest children’s ser-
vices organisation, providing child development,
rehabilitation, and disability services to more than
2000 South Australian children and young people
living with a disability or other special needs.
The river run departed Renmark on Monday,
and will depart Waikerie this morning, arriving in
The 39 Mighty River Run crews are expected to
arrive in Murray Bridge by Friday.
Over 39 boats and their crews descended on the Loxton riverfront on Monday, as the West End
Mighty River Run made its way from Renmark to Murray Bridge.

Council pay rise
Loxton Waikerie councillors and mayors
will earn 13 per cent more than they did four
years ago, thanks to a pay boost in effect
after the recent local government elections.
Elected members are paid according to how their
council is ranked in six groups judged by the South
Australian Remuneration Tribunal.
Loxton Waikerie Council, along with Berri Barmera,
is ranked in ‘group three’, while Renmark Paringa is
rated a ‘group four’ council.
Following a tribunal review this year, councillors at
Loxton Waikerie and Berri Barmera Councils will be
entitled to $12,800 annually, while Renmark Paringa
elected members will receive $9100.
Loxton Waikerie mayor Leon Stasinowsky and
Berri Barmera’s Peter Hunt will receive $51,200,
while Renmark Paringa’s Neil Martinson will earn
This is an increase from $45,200 and $32,000
In 2010, Loxton Waikerie councillors received
$11,300 each year, while Renmark Paringa’s earned
Since 2010, annual increases have been added onto
that base allowance in accordance with rises in the
Consumer Price Index.
