Dear Editor,


Firstly, thankyou so much for forwarding the first issue of Doryanthes - also for including my letter to the Editor. The articles are very interesting and it is very apparent that you have put a lot of work into the cover page and layout. I was surprised to see an old teacher of mine mentioned in the Woronora Weir story - Mrs Margaret Simpson.


I caught up with her at Lilli Pilli Primary School's 50th Anniversary last year and was able to tell her how her teaching and enthusiasm had remained with me - and my class only joined hers for music and sport!

S


ince my last contact with you in June things have escalated re the Deletion of Port Hacking. The contacts you gave me with the Sutherland Shire Historical Society helped publicise the issue and Dawn, Angela and Jim have been extremely helpful. A group photograph next to the Port Hacking milestone (near Caringbah Pub) in the St George & Sutherland Leader, gave some other locals the courage to make contact with me regarding the issue. Since I was the first to put my 'face & name' to the project, I seem to be the unofficial co-ordinator. Initially I was just

contacting people and verifying and adding to the information which I had. Many said they would write to Council and the Geographical Names Board but although I gave them the addresses they just did not get around to writing.

The correspondence we received from GNB indicated that they would be liaising further with Council regarding several names and that they had sought comments from Council. The replies from Sutherland Shire Council advise us to make submissions to the GNB - as they are the governing body responsible for assigning locality/suburb names. One Port Hacking resident was told that a decision would be made when the Board met with Council at their meeting in September. Acting on that information, we realised time was an issue. A letterbox drop and doorknock was decided upon for a group submission.


A

double sided, one page letter was distributed - giving a condensed history of Port Hacking, quoting parish maps and noting the Declaration as a Village by Govt Gazette in 1933 and Declaration as a Suburb in 1973.


It is hard to door knock but some of us are having excellent results. One senior lady has not only walked the streets, she has made contact with a member of the Fellowship of First Fleeters - this group will be making a submission to the GNB.

On Thursday 21st August, a 'new recruitment' wanting to attend 'the meeting', phoned Council and spoke to Stephen Heapey. He knew nothing, Council is in caretaker mode and there is no meeting in September with GNB.

So what I am hoping you as a member of the GNB can help answer is:

Who do the GNB meet with?

Where do GNB meet? Can the public attend?

When do they meet ie monthly, yearly? How do you become a member of GNB?


When was the suburb/locality of Lilli Pilli first declared/gazetted? When was the suburb/locality of Dolan’s Bay first declared/gazetted?


Old Parish maps dating back to 1840 show Port Hacking as the area south of Burraneer Bay Road, stretching from Woolooware Road in the east to Yowie Bay in the west. Thomas Holt held a land grant in the Village of Port Hacking and Patrick bought land in vacinity of the bay named after him in 1856. If Port Hacking came first it seems wrong that it is the very location which has recently been deleted.

Thanks,

Mindy

Editorial


Australia is a country where science, history and the arts are neglected.  Here we favour sport, rather than the fruits of the mind. We run; we swim; we play ball games.


We don't get excited about ideas and we would prefer to ignore problems like global warming.   We rely on the export of wool, wheat, coal and minerals–what we can pluck from our increasingly parched soil – for our prosperity, rarely on invention or cultural exports.


When we reflect on the past (and when we are not using the word 'history' to suggest 'finished' or 'useless') it is with self-satisfaction, mythology and reference to feats of arms : Gallipoli, Kakoda and Long Tan.  


We don't want to be challenged, disturbed or wear 'black armbands'.   When it comes to competing with innovators, we would rather count sporting medals. Here, when we use words like 'intellectual', 'scholarly', 'academic' or 'technical', it is frequently in a pejorative sense.  


Yet there are other countries that live largely on their wits - small countries with virtually no natural resources beyond their people and strategic location: Denmark, Japan, Mauritius, the Netherlands and Singapore, to name a few.  


These are countries that rely almost entirely on technology, innovation and trade to survive. Sport is not the principal subject of public discourse or the benchmark for achievement.  


In this time of economic uncertainty and climate change, we need to learn from HISTORY (our own and that of others) and reassess some of our fundamental assumptions about the future.  If demand for our wool, wheat and minerals slows, if the oceans rise and the reefs die, will we still look to Olympic medals as a measure of our success?
