Prize-winning stories

A few weeks ago the newspaper I work for won six awards at this years’ Australian Catholic Press Association conference. Three of them were for stories I wrote last year, which was nice.

In December I visited Forbes, Parkes and Condobolin in central west New South Wales and met kids, parents, teachers, and priests who were raving about how their new primary religious education curriculum was making school more fun, and even changing people’s lives. It was the brainchild of education leader Gerard O’Shea. See the whole story here and here.

I covered the introduction of laws in Victoria that some legal experts are still warning is the biggest instance of state overreach into citizen’s lives that they have seen in this country.

And I had a great conversation with Jonathan Roumie, who plays Jesus Christ in the stunningly successful independent show, The Chosen.

Now if anyone knows of competitions I can enter to win prizes for the best 10-minute dinners, most indefatigable reading aloud voice, or healthiest urban micro-garden, let me know and my life will be complete!
