Hello and Welcome to My Website!

I decided to set up this site as a communication opportunity for myself and most importantly – you – the people of Frome. I hope you enjoy exploring this site as much as my staff and I did when putting it together. I appreciate feedback, and would love to hear from you as to the information you would like made available on the site.

The Frome Electorate and Regional South Australia is very important to me. Engaging with the community is essential to ensure that I have a clear understanding of issues faced by the people of Frome.


Youth Parliament – Regional Scholarships

Youth Parliament provides a unique forum for young people aged 15-24 to express their views, become advocates for their community and learn about South Australia’s parliamentary system.
The program is managed by the YMCA South Australia (SA) and supported by the Government of South Australia through the Department for Communities and Social Inclusion.
Now in its 22nd year, Youth Parliament has supported over 1,000 young leaders to learn about the SA Parliamentary system, voting procedures, parliamentary etiquette, public speaking, leadership and bill development in a professional, supportive and exciting environment.

Regional scholarships are available again this year to support the costs of:
• travel to and from Adelaide and accommodation for the training weekend in May 2017
• travel to and from Adelaide for the residential week in July 2017.
visit YMCA SA or contact Alana James at YMCA SA on 8200 2514 or email

Important dates for Youth Parliament 2017:
• Participant applications close: Sunday 12 March 2017
• Training weekend: May 2017
• Parliament residential week: July 2017


National Ride2School Day

Friday March 17 2017 is National Ride2School Day!
National Ride2School Day is the perfect opportunity for Australian students and school communities to embrace a healthier start and to try walking and riding to school for themselves.

National Ride2School Day is the flagship event for the Ride2School program and Bicycle Network. With more than 2,000 schools and 350,000 students taking part each year, it’s a day for celebration.
Over the past 40 years the number of children who are physically active everyday has significantly dropped. Today, levels of physical activity are at an all-time low. In the 1970s, eight out of ten students rode or walked to school. That number has dropped to just two out of ten. Sadly, Australian kids are now spending up to 16 hours of their day in front of a screen.

National Ride2School Day is the perfect opportunity for every school community to ditch the car and embrace a healthier start to the day by riding and walking to school.
Don’t forget that National Ride2School Day is more just a day, it can be done everyday.
