Janelle Menzies


Janelle is a local farmer and photographer who has in recent years expanded her horizons by exploring the delights of acrylic painting. 


Farming landscape


While new to the art scene she is enjoying the challenge of attempting new subjects and is excited at the prospect of exploring other mediums such as Watercolours, Inks and Oils in the near future.

Janelle has previously exhibited at The Thousand Paces in Bowral, Wingecarribee Foyer Gallery and the Southern Highlands Art Studio Trail in the Glenquarry Hall.


Janelle's Story


"I was born in Bowral and have spent most of my life living and
working in the Southern Highlands.


I spent much of my childhood playing in the bush, either in the small pocket of rainforest on my Grandparents property at Robertson or the bushland surrounding my childhood home at the base of “The Gib” (Mt Gibralter) in Mittagong. 


I married a dairy farmer and moved to Glenquarry where my husband, our four children and I have been working to protect and restore areas of remnant vegetation on our property to ensure we play our part in the conservation of endangered ecological communities in the Wingecarribee shire.


My photography work has evolved as a result of my lifelong love of the natural environment.


I enjoy sharing the beauty of the landscape which can be easily overlooked when we don’t take the time to stop and appreciate the beauty of the environment that surrounds us.


More recently I have been introduced to the wonderful experience of painting which in many ways requires a very different mindset to photography. Photography is still a favourite activity but I have found a passion for the challenge of creating an image of my own making and look forward to developing my painting skills and exploring the many mediums available."

Mayoral Cabinet 


Wingecarribee Shire Council’s Family Day Care


In 1983, Amanda Larkin, a community worker, prepared a community profile of the Wingecarribee Shire where it was identified there was a need for a child care service in the Shire which catered to families requiring longer hours than the existing preschools in the area accommodated for. Subsequently Wingecarribee Shire Council made a successful approach to the Federal Government for funding and application for Council to operate as the “sponsor” of the scheme. The Scheme was established in 6 May 1985 when Council signed an agreement with the Commonwealth Government. Anne McMillan was appointed as Co-ordinator. Initially each family day care “mother”, now known as Educator was able to cater for a maximum of 7 children per day (including their own) with 4 of those being able to be under preschool age.


Mayoral Cabinet


The Scheme was initially housed in a very small office behind the “old Library” in Bowral and operated from there until 1992 when they moved to a Council owned house in Argyle St. Moss Vale. Theses premises allowed not only office and administration facilities but the Scheme Playsession was also conducted there.


On 14 June 2003 the East Bowral Community Centre on the corner of Boardman Rd and Rowland Rd was officially opened. The Children’s Services Office was relocated to a purpose built facility, offering administration space, interview room, playroom, playground space and suitable storage for the Service Toy Library.


Belonging
Becoming

For 32 years Wingecarribee Family Day Care has provided high quality Home Based Education and Care, priding ourselves on being the only locally based Coordination Unit, which offers professional support to the Educators operating under our Scheme. We believe it takes “ a community to raise a child and a shared vision to provide and environment which is rich with opportunities for children to grow and develop to their individual potential” – Children’s Services Philosophy 2022.
