Education has been in the press again this week as the PISA testing results of Australia have come under question in a comparison with other OCED countries. However, the PISA figures of the nation are averages and averages can mask the achievements at both ends of the spectrum. Read more

The problem I have as Chaplain is that as soon as I say that word, ‘God’, people hearing it are off in about 200 different directions, some warm, some negative, some hopeful, some dismissive. People are imagining a God who they feel has dealt them fate indiscriminately, or a God who they consider is exclusive, judgemental or rejecting. Read more

From time to time we are presented with challenging situations where we receive challenging feedback. Feedback that makes us stiffen up, want to defend ourselves or justify our actions, and sometimes even make excuses for why we acted or did things the way we did. At times it is even common place to look for others to blame, maybe justifiably but not constructively. Read more

Many of us have been watching the excavations and ground works at the site of our new Innovation and Inquiry Hub with great interest.
