There is one universal element that all people have to master in their life - and that is time.


Time is the great equaliser. We each have 168 hours per week with which to use our time and some people are able to achieve an extraordinary amount in that time, others not so much. Given that we all have this finite resource doesn't it make sense to try and figure out the best way to utilise your time? I have written many articles surrounding time mastery including the 8 principles of time principles and balancing priorities in the VCE and I'm passionate about finding strategies that help me to balance work, family, friends, business and health/fitness. It's never easy but it is so important for y...

DV: Time taken to escape the puzzle box, hence how long it took th...

be tired, grumpy, irritable, tearful or upset most of the time

Kudos to Louise Roberts from Trinity for sharing her VCE English Prezi on the context "Whose Reality."


A prezi is a cool little presentation tool that anyone can use and is a different way to present information, particularly using multi-media. It is non-linear in presentation format so you can zoom and pan to focus on different aspects. Just hit the play button at the base of the prezi to get started. Enjoy!

Kurt Fearnley is an inspiration. Someone you can look at, learn from and draw strength from. To walk Kokoda requires peak physical conditioning, mental strength and a fundamental desire to take your life to the edge.


Yet for Kurt, walking Kokoda was never an option. You see Kurt was born with spina bifida - a condition which causes damage to the spine and spinal cord. Kurt couldn't walk Kokoda so he decided to crawl Kokoda. Yes, you heard me correctly. Crawl!


Kurt's a person who has never let his disability get in the way of him living his life. In fact, he lives much more of his life than most people I know. He is a world champion athlete, a fundraising legend (he was raising money ...
