Osteoporosis is largely preventable. Targeted health interventions now could drastically curb the incidence of osteoporosis and fracture morbidity, which currently stands at a fracture every eight minutes and increasing.

The statistics with arthritis are equally concerning. I would like to thank all of those who organised the event on Sunday. It was truly enjoyable. I hope that they raised a lot of money to support what is a great organisation here in our community—Arthritis ACT.

Trinity Christian school

MR COE (Ginninderra) (4.36): I would like to acknowledge the students and staff of Trinity Christian school in Wanniassa who were responsible for the production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat last week. The show ran for a few days this month and was very well attended. I thought it was a superb production and did justice to the magnificent work by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice.

I would like to commend the staff and the students for the sacrifice they made in terms of their time to put on the production—for a very happy crowd and a crowd that was extremely impressed not only with the enthusiasm and commitment of the students but also the actual quality of the production.

I would also like to take this opportunity to welcome the new principal of Trinity Christian school, Mr Andrew Clayton, to the role. He takes over from Carl Palmer and he takes on a school which has a wonderful reputation for a very warm and welcoming environment and an ethos which values education in the classroom but also in terms of values and all-round personal development.

I would like to acknowledge the musical director, Alison Evans, the director, Wayne Dudgeon, and the following cast members: Brendan DeMeillon, Harriet Drane, Carly Wilson, Daniel D’Abrera, Daniel Kneebone, Brendan Wright, Natasha Muir, Ros Grosse, Nathan DeMeillon, Sophie Hewitt, Elizabeth Plowman, Rachel Knill, Natalie Chynoweth, Robert Shiells, Brooke Winslade, Bec Mackney, Emma Tollis, Elizabeth Smiles, Keiran Howell, Bridie Adams, Angela Voce, Madeleine Winnett, Saffron Dudgeon, Sarah Straczek, Rachel Tollis, Laura Higgins, Georgia Fowler, Kate Woollard and Mary Hill.

The ensemble included Faith Ajaye, Megan Brinkley, Beau Campbell, Aiden Edwards, Mitchell France, Isaac Goodwin, Caitlin Hockley, Georgia Hockley, Jessica Landford, Claire Le Couteur, Emma Marris, Emily McKinnon, Natasha Muir, Jonathan Pears, Kristy Richardson, Alecia Ronnfeldt, Stephanie Ronnfelt, Olivia Viertel, Brendan Wright and Kate-E Yeow.

The junior Joseph choir included Sarah Balfour, Brooke Bellwood, Nari Berman, Emma Burne, Tameeka Chalmers, Kymberley Chan, Elizabeth Doyle, Samantha Eiser, Claire Falls, Emily Hall, Liana Hall, Emma Hartley, Maddie Hockley, Ben Holland, Asher Ingram, Rachel Jerks, Hannah Jeston, Paige Jurgens, Gabi Kaizik, Brooke Kobold, Teresa Laing, Chelsea Newman, Claire Nicholls, Annaliese Pears, Sophie Pearson, Sienna Pitt, Eliza Robertson, Elly Schell, Kiera Taylor, Sara Tollis, Olivia Uebergang and Tia van Bockel.
