Give our children options. Say no to NAPLAN

I was a Government schooled child who attended a quite a few (four primary and three high schools), in mostly poorer areas. Despite the less than ideal experience, I always felt I had options, and more importantly the space to learn, fail, change, grow and try again. It’s a luxury our kids can not afford in the current schooling system, especially when it comes to NAPLAN. NAPLAN, from my understanding, was introduced by the Gillard...

Sydneymum presents: Screenagers

“As the mother of three kids—two of them teenagers—I’ve noticed that whenever I get together with other parents, the conversation ends up turning to our kids’ screen time…”This was just one of the many testimonials about the documentary Screenagers I can relate to. My kids certainly enjoyed an extended amount of usual screen time these past school holidays and it was not without concern. Even after dog walks, soccer...
