A LOCAL primary school was
entranced by the imaginative
tales of well-known author Phil
Cummings last week.
Renmark North students have
spent the school year reading Mr
Cummings’ books and welcomed
the accomplished writer with open
arms last Tuesday.
Mr Cummings shared the real-
life stories behind some of his
illustrated children’s books to an
engaged and attentive year 2/3
He also shared writing tips and
showcased some of the illustra-
tions found in his books through a
The school’s interest in Mr
Cummings’ work is part of a
push to encourage its students to
increase their time spent reading.
Mr Cummings, a Dad’s
Read literacy ambassador, also
held a workshop for parents on
Wednesday night to discuss the
importance of a father’s role in
reading to their children.

Two drug drivers were
busted in the Riverland over the
long weekend, and about 100
motorists were handed expiation
notices across the Murray Mallee
Local Service Area (LSA).
Murray Mallee LSA super-
intendent James Blandford said
he was disappointed with some
motorists’ behaviour over the
“We ended up with no casual-
ties or serious injury crashes, but
unfortunately it’s sad that there
is always this minority that can’t
seem to do the right thing,” he
“As much as we talk about
road safety, we are continually
disappointed by some drivers
who forget their responsibilities
when they get behind the wheel.”
SA Police patrols focused on
the fatal five – speeding, drug
and drink driving, seatbelts non-
compliance, inattentive driving
and vulnerable road users – over
the long weekend.
“We were lucky this weekend
that we didn’t have anything hor-
rible happen,” he said.
“However, the very fact that
there are people that can’t obey
the simple rules means that eve-
rybody has to be hyper vigilant
and conscious when they are
driving due to those people who
make mistakes or are reckless
and stupid behind the wheel.
“Road safety is not going away
until we end up with nobody
injured or killed on our roads.”
One death was recorded on
South Australian roads over the
long weekend when a 61-year-
old man was killed in Balaklava
after his vehicle hit a parked car.
