News

There are so many wonderful books coming out this month but one we urge teachers to pay particular attention to is Stand Strong by Nick Vujicic, the inspiring author of the bestselling Life Without Limits. Offering insights and strategies to help young people overcome personal problems, feelings of poor self esteem, bullying and failure, Stand Strong is, quite simply, a book that teachers everywhere should read. And on a very different front we have new books from two much-loved authors, Barry Jonsberg (Pandora Jones: Admission) and Garth Nix (Missing, Presumed Evil: Troubletwisters 4).
