Young Journalist Award Intermediate Honourable Mention: Red

19 Aug 2015 | Ricky Xerri

Red’s story starts when he moves to Australia at the age of 7. When he moved he feared he wouldn't fit in because everything was so different; the culture, the people and the way every day things were done.


Young Journalist Award Junior Honourable Mention: The Woman behind the Community

19 Aug 2015 | Anne Nguyen

I sat there, crying, drenching my shirt in tears but as I walk out of the toilet; it started again. ‘Loser!’ ‘Weirdo!’ ‘Nerd!’ The whole class was laughing. This is Rosette Chidiac, a former victim of bullying. Now a youth minister at Holy Trinity Parish, her life turned around as soon as she stood up for herself and chose to be God’s hands and feet to the local youth community.

Confirmation: Discovering God for yourself

What Gallipoli means to me

29 Jan 2015 | James Manoussakis

The Gallipoli Centenary is an opportunity for young people to reflect on the last 100 years and remember what the soldiers endured for their comrades and for the freedom of our nation. With the death of Alec Campbell, the last living Anzac, in May 2002, the responsibility of maintaining the legacy and the spirit of the Anzacs now rests with my generation.


Peace in the playground

29 Jan 2015 | Nanette Mangoba

How do we cope when we become the target of a bully? As teenagers, it’s common to get hooked onto trying to fit in. We can do some pretty crazy things to be in the ‘popular’ group. Although it’s great to feel so loved by many others, we should try to be an individual, remain true to our self and should not feel compelled to do something we don’t want to do.

29 Jan 2015 | Brenna Dempsey

Here in Australia, refugees who arrive without authorisation are subjected to detention, and those who come by boat are sent to overseas processing centres and told they will never be allowed to settle in Australia.
