Australian of the Year Awards – Be Great and Nominate

One nomination is all it takes. I am a very proud recipient of an Australian of the Year Award, Local Hero, and all it took was one nomination.

If you know someone who is making a real difference in your life or in this country, jump online and nominate them for an Australian of the Year Award.

Nominations close on 6th August, so there is still time.

This is a great opportunity for everyone to acknowledge and give praise to someone they look up to and respect.

The Awards program relies on the public to submit nominations for people deserving of recognition, so have your say on who should be considered for the 2018

  • Australian of the Year,
  • Senior Australian of the Year,
  • Young Australian of the Year and
  • Australia’s Local Hero.

It only takes one nomination for someone to be in the running for the Awards, but a nomination must be formally submitted (it makes absolutely no difference if there are multiple nominations for a person – it only takes one nomination).

If you need assistance in submitting your nomination, call 1300 655 193

Working with children

Changes to the Working with Children Act 2005
Increased protection for our kids is something I am always supportive of. Here is an update regarding Working With Children Checks…

The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse made several recommendations aimed at strengthening the protection children receive through Working with Children Checks.

The amendments to the Working with Children Act 2005 (the Act)which come into effect on 1 August 2017, are the government’s response to implementing these recommendations.

Tracky dack comfort to help sick kids | The Courier

Who doesn’t want to wear comfy tracky dacks all day? In May you have an excuse – tracky dacks support sick kids.

About 80 children and staff from Ballarat North Early Learning Centre donned their comfy tracksuit pants yesterday to support Tracky Dack Day for children’s charity TLC for Kids.

For a gold coin donation they spent the day in comfort knowing the money would go toward helping provide distraction boxes for children in hospitals throughout Australia, or supporting families of sick children.
