As we head towards 2050 and beyond, our society will be faced with many challenges.
Climate change, food security, equality, justice, health and welfare challenges are but a few. Here I share my thoughts and observations about many current and continuing issues. I would be pleased to receive your feedback and I invite you to join me in the conversations.
With the close of one year and the beginning of the new, we often use this time to reflect on what has been; to make resolutions and decide upon changes we hope to make in our lives.
One could argue that our feelings may be skewed at this time of year with the celebrations and happiness that typically accompanies the festive season. However not all families are able to celebrate with happiness at this time.
Bullies don’t just reduce their prey to emotional rubble; their conduct leaves a trail of untold destruction; of broken spirits and of broken dreams for those close to the victim too.
If you are a witness to bullying do you reach out to protect and defend the victim or do you look the other way?Onlookers can be either part of the bullying problem or an important part of the solution to stop bullying.
My sister was recently introduced to junior hockey in an initiation of fire, or rather that should be sleet and gale force winds! She willingly accepted the challenge of being actively involved as a caregiver and supporter during the week long SAPSASA hockey program on the SA Primary School Sports calendar.The carnival was held in metropolitan Adelaide.
I am so blessed to have a sister who was willing and able to perform the highly important and vital role of “hockey mum.” Corinna capably stepped-up during the days my work prevented me being on the sidelines.
