Trade built on relationships

26 May 2015 | Yazmine Lomax

Amy Cook, a Year 12 student at Padua College on the Mornington Peninsula, travelled to East Timor with a group of fellow students in 2014 as part of the school’s biannual immersion experience and relief mission. 


Playlist: Fair play

26 May 2015 | Monique Pueblos

This edition’s movie list is all about fair play. 


Confirmation: Discovering God for yourself

22 Mar 2015 | Various

Confirmation is our chance to make our own choice to follow God. It’s where we receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit and become fully part of the Catholic community. We asked some of our young writers to look back on their confirmation, and what it meant for them


What Gallipoli means to me

29 Jan 2015 | James Manoussakis

The Gallipoli Centenary is an opportunity for young people to reflect on the last 100 years and remember what the soldiers endured for their comrades and for the freedom of our nation. With the death of Alec Campbell, the last living Anzac, in May 2002, the responsibility of maintaining the legacy and the spirit of the Anzacs now rests with my generation.


Peace in the playground

29 Jan 2015 | Nanette Mangoba

How do we cope when we become the target of a bully? As teenagers, it’s common to get hooked onto trying to fit in. We can do some pretty crazy things to be in the ‘popular’ group. Although it’s great to feel so loved by many others, we should try to be an individual, remain true to our self and should not feel compelled to do something we don’t want to do.


Lives set adrift

29 Jan 2015 | Brenna Dempsey

Here in Australia, refugees who arrive without authorisation are subjected to detention, and those who come by boat are sent to overseas processing centres and told they will never be allowed to settle in Australia. We asked one of our young writers, Brenna Dempsey, to speak to some people who work with refugees to see if she could find out some of their stories.


The Expendables of the Bible

26 Oct 2014 | Various

Just because the world has forgotten us, it doesn’t mean that God has. Who are the Bible’s biggest hopeless cases, and how did they find faith? We asked some of our young writers to go digging.


A Christmas wishlist

26 Oct 2014 | Yazmine Lomax

Dear Santa, here are some gifts I’d really love to wake up to on Christmas morning.


Young Journalist Award Intermediate Winner: Wheels in motion

26 Jul 2014 | Audrey Moore

It's a typical Monday morning at Our Lady of the Angels' School in Wavell Heights in Brisbane's north. Children are arriving and teachers are busily getting ready for the day. Handballs bounce playfully around the courtyard and sounds of teachers bustling about their classrooms fill the air. It's 8:10am and Kate Chellingworth is also busily preparing for the day ahead. But Kate is no ordinary school teacher. Kate is in a wheelchair.

26 Jul 2014 | Sophie Quoyle

Before moving to Australia at age four, my grandma Stefanie Moyle, travelled across the world with her family. They moved from one refugee camp to another after WWII ended and then finally set out for Australia, hoping for 'a completely different life'.
