NAPLAN pic.jpg

NAPLAN (the National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy) are tests of basic skills administered to Australian students. NAPLAN data is used to rank each school’s performance against all other schools.  This cartoon illustrates ‘The rating Game’ in the latest Australian Education Union Journal (South Australia Branch). Author Lara Golding argues that NAPLAN is ‘fatally flawed’.

Independence Educational Publishers UK  produce Issues, a series of cross-curricular resource books for 14 -18 year olds. Each book (there are currently 70 in print) has a number of cartoon illustrations by three (Australian!) cartoonists – Don Hatcher, Angelo Madrid and me. These are a few of my cartoons from the latest books covering health, eating disorders, housing, child abuse and money issues.

Preschool amalgamations LR pic.jpg

Cartoon for the article by Emma Lowe in the Australian Education Union Journal (AEU) SA,“Your country preschool needs you”. The South Australian Education Department is ‘amalgamating’ country preschools with junior primary classes as a budget saving. The result is that many preschools cease to exist. “This is not about the delivery of quality early childhood education…Where is the sound pedagogical evidence?”

Artwork for signs at Bowman Park, near Crystal Brook, South Australia. The park is becoming more popular, especially with RV travellers. The signs aim to alert campers to environmental issues: controlling pets, avoiding the spreading weeds, and in particular, discourage the gathering wood for campfires. Trees, logs and fallen branches are habitat for lizards, birds and insects.  Areas in the park are being left bare from the camp fire wood gathering.
