"Our childhoods set the tones for our adult lives and those intense experiences are so important to us." John Marsden, ABC May 2015 What does good education look like?


If you don't know John Marsden, you might recognise his bestselling teen fiction series Tomorrow, When the War Began which has been translated and published (1993) all over the world. Turned into a film in 2010, it had a resurgence as a six part ABC series for television this year.

Born in Victoria in 1950, Marsden has written many novels and as an educator, taught full-time for many years. In 2006 he launched his own school, Candlebark, where the numbers are kept small on purpose, in the interest of focussing on a warm and friendly atmosphere and creative lively learning which is purposeful and challenging. There's a long waiting list to get in.

Brought to you by Dumbo Feather, this magazine specialises in conversations with extraordinary people and change-makers who inspire, excite and thrill us with possibilities. It was created to educate and heal and tell stories of people living with passion and purpose. Named after Disney's Dumbo who believed a magic feather gave him the power to fly; the magazine aspires to be the magic feather for readers to have the courage to do what they are truly capable of.

I only received this edition of Weekend Notes this morning, checked the John Marsden presentation and it's already booked out. Feeling disappointed as I would have loved to attend.
