Waste transfer ban
Most Penrith councillors have voted against the transfer of waste from Hunters Hill to the SITA facility at Kemps Creek but have refused to support a rally at the Joan Sutherland Centre.
A packed public gallery of more than 150 residents watched councillors in a fiery debate.
St Clair resident Izabella Paruit addressed the meeting on behalf of Western Sydney Residents against Radioactive Dumping.
Nine councillors supported the motion to oppose the transfer of any waste.
Find Easter bunnies
St Marys Town Management needs your help on March 23.
Some bunnies will escape from the office and you will be needed to round them up. Many bunnies will be hiding up and down Queen Street as part of the St Marys Easter Egg Hunt.
Kids can dress up and search for the bunnies hiding out in their favourite Queen Street businesses.
The bunnies will be rewarding the kids who find them.
There will also be free entertainment, face painting, dancers and musicians.
Children must be younger than 18, in an Easter costume and under supervision.
Get computer savvy
A new computer hub at St Marys will help seniors become familiar with technology.
Hedi Roggeveen started computer classes run by University of Third Age (U3A) in Penrith a year ago and has never looked back.
She encourages anyone wary of computers to sign up for the classes at St Marys Senior Citizens Centre.
U3A Nepean-Blue Mountains will expand its training for anyone over age 50.
Taste of high school
Year 6 pupils from Emerton, Dawson, Lethbridge Park, Blackett, Mount Druitt, and Medang public schools have joined activities at Chifley College Mount Druitt campus.
Teacher Kerry Doyle said it was good for pupils to get a feel for high school between Chifley College and our schools.
"Days like this provide a chance to quieten any anxieties that students may have and also motivate them to look forward to attending high school," she said.
Mount Druitt campus is forging relationships with local primary school students.
