A group of 14 men from Nildottie, Swan
Reach, Bakara and Walker Flat, under
the name of “Mallee Boys” raised $10,606
from events etc. to raise money for men’s health
They are assisting men with prostate cancer,
testicular cancer, mental health and depression
As well as fundraising, their aim was to raise
awareness of men’s health issues, especially
with country men, who are probably more
likely to not get regular checkups or follow up
It is believed this is partly due to lack of
facilities, distances and time taken to travel,
too busy working to have a checkup, or just the
tough country male attitude of “I dont get sick”
or “I’ll be OK’.
The men enjoyed a bus trip to Murray Bridge
and a lunch cruise on board the Captain Proud
paddle boat. They booked the entire boat, with 70
people attending and raised $2,200 from this day.
They started a Facebook page under ‘Mallee
Boys’ and promoted Movember and their group
The final event was a shave-off dinner in the
Nildottie Hall, with over 130 people attending.
This night raised over $3,500, with silent
auctions, raffles, lucky dips and a live auction
of soft toys also held on the night.
Local hairdresser, Rosanne McConnell from
Galga, shaved off all of the participating men’s
beards and moustaches throughout the night,
adding to the fun.
‘Mallee Boys’ member, Tony Friebel, had
agreed to have his beard and moustache that
he had been growing for 28 years and his 33-year
rats tail cut off if the group could raise $5,000.
This was achieved during the
week before the shave-off, so off it all came on

Last year the Tanunda Liedertafel again
continued with its sponsorship of awards for
the study of the German language and music at
Nuriootpa High School and Faith College in the
Barossa and also an award for German language
studies at the DECD School of Languages in the
The Liedertafel continues to the best of its
ability to encourage respect for the Barossa
tradition, of which the historical use of the German
language has been a part.
Certainly the Barossa Deutsch dialect is now
no longer used and perhaps been forgotten, except
for those with a specific interest in the subject.
However as has been pointed out in The Leader,
ongoing research by the Linguistics Faculty of
the University of Munich and other institutions
continues, which is important in the study of
earlier times and places, not just in the Barossa.
The Liedertafel has a strong interest in the
music tradition of the Barossa as well, the music
award is to encourage students in the discipline.
Indeed there has been over the last months,
an interest shown in the establishment of a
German conversation group in the Barossa under
the guidance of Dr Peter Mickan of the German
Faculty of the University of Adelaide.
There has been regular and interested
attendance, mainly by first language speakers,
from the Barossa and beyond at the “Kaffee
Klatsch” held at the Langmeil Church hall in
Tanunda and it is hoped that this interest will
This year’s awards at Nuriootpa High School
which were presented at the End of Year
Assemblies by Paul Schlüter (Secretary of the
Lidertafel), went to Morgan Leske for Year 11
German and Emilie Hanckel for Year 12 music;
and at Faith College the Year 12 German studies
award was shared by Dinah Swinkel and
Jacqueline Bayah. The Year 12 music award went
to Marlise Slade.
The Community Award at the School of
Languages was presented to Ben Schmidt from
Glenunga International High School by Dr Colin
Reuter (Life member of the Liedertafel), at the
Celebration of Achievement held at Bonython
Hall in November.
All 1,450 students, both primary and secondary,
attend School of Languages’ classes outside of
normal school hours.
Numbers at the school have been steadily
increasing due to the interest in learning
