With the access to the world at our fingertips, we are constantly bombarded with images and stories that seem to paint the young people in our world in a not so glamorous light.

Sunday nights from my childhood had a duel nature to them. Often the culmination of a weekend’s fun activities and the closure of a relaxing day, Sunday night came around far too quickly.

My daughter has just started Prep this year and I am struggling to keep up with the pace of expectation! Australian parents currently rate achieving a respectable work-family balance as their greatest parenting challenge given they work more hours than ever before.

It’s the age-old question. What is the best way to measure success? From our school point of view, should it be the silverware in our cabinets in the music and sport offices? Is it the number of teams we enter competitions? Is it the percentage of students participating in programs? Is it our win/loss ratio? Is it the number of Golds we bring home from Queensland Colleges Music Festival?
