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?”

Craig Greer writes in the latest South Australian Teachers Journal about the lack of special needs funding. ‘It’s an issue that is becoming more critical by the day and, if not addressed with the rollout of needs based funding as recommended by the Gonski Review, has the capacity to severely impact on outcomes in public schools for years to come.’

John Kruger continues chronicling his son Stone’s life, from birth to young boy, in the SA Kids magazine. In this issue he writes about bedtime reading and how he is not as keen as Stone on Dr Seuss’s Green Eggs and Ham.

comic LR page

The South Australian courts have released a comic book to celebrate 20 years of restorative justice for young offenders; read more  here. The comic, written by Marnie Doig and drawn by me, was actually created 20 years ago, at the beginning of the family conference based system.
