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 ...

A wave of disbelief is sweeping over the entire Victoria state - where did the 2 week holiday break go? The last couple of weeks have flown past and I hope that you have been able to get what you needed done and are prepared for what is the most challenging term of all - term 3.


This is the term that really sets you up for the end of year exams - some might say it is the premiership quarter of terms! Why? Because it is pivotal to set you up for a strong finish to the school year. Hopefully you have been able to stay on the ball these holidays and get most of your holiday homework completed...if not you will need to work double time to catch up within the first few weeks of this term. If you d...

I've had many emails and questions from students asking the question " how do I prepare for my VCE? " so I decided to create a 16 minute video on the topic. Please leave your questions and comments below.

With VCE students about to go back to school it is an appropriate time for VCE students to examine (or re-examine) their goals not just for their VCE but for this year (the VCE is an important year there is no doubt, but it doesn't mean that it should be the only thing).


With goal setting it is vital to remember this one almighty and all encompassing principle...


“If the ‘why to’ is big enough ‘the how’ to will look after itself”


Why are you going to all the trouble of studying in the first place? Study can be extremely boring. It is much more fun to exercise, watch TV, hang out with our mates etc. If we don’t have a strong and compelling personal reaso...

This has been the most unbelievable year. So much has happened and as we wind up our VCE studies I want to borrow you for just 3-5 minutes in total to answer each of these questions in the comments section below - I would really appreciate it ( as would the class of 2010 who will benefit from this next year and beyond). Thanks for your support.


# 1. What has been challenging for you this year?


For example; finding time to study?, struggling to keep up with work? etc.


# 2. If you had your time over what would you have done differently?


# 3. What other information do you need or want to help you reach your goals for the VCE exams?


3 questions answered in 3-5 minutes. Short, sharp and to the point.

An important step for any VCE student about to undertake their VCE exams is to ensure they know exactly what they can and cannot bring into the exam. Being familiar with the exam instructions and essential resources will help leading up the final preparations so you can keep the stress levels down on the big day. These front covers also shows you the formula sheet that you will have provided to you in certain exams as well.

Hitting the right target

Christian Williams didn’t qualify for the Olympics in archery.“I was nowhere near good enough, didn’t even make it to the trial,” he muses.Not that he’s too concerned.
At one point the 25-year-old Bentleigh resident wasn’t sure he’d make it to June.


At the age of 20 an abnormal resting heart rate was detected, resulting from a defect in the circuitry of his heart.


He developed heart failure and since then has been in and out of hospitals, managing to cheat death.


Wanting to maintain a fit and healthy lifestyle, Williams tried a number of sports, attempting to re...

We finally made it - holidays are upon us and we are free (at least for a little while anyway).


The notion of doing (or even receiving) holiday homework is particularly new for most Year 11 students and probably for some Year 12 students. I've heard the VCE holidays being called "study vacations", "school holiday", "study break" etc...but how do you go about actually tackling it and completing it with the minimum of fuss and stress.


I have written extensively about this topic because so many students struggle to deal effectively with the holiday period. See - VCE school holidays - don't drop the ball and the september school holiday conundrum


Let's face it, you need some R & R (rest and relaxat...
