Growth

This has been a week where I’ve been in meetings seemingly non-stop. I can’t find anything really compelling to share with you about those meetings, but two non-meeting events from the last week really stand out.

Living toward a sustainable world is a challenge; it inconveniences us from what we are used to; it means we have to grow and change. Not just our actions, but in our disposition and our ideas.

His second daughter is enrolled at Loreto Normanhurst, forming part of a family and generational change that is aimed to bridge the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians, one that the College has been committed to over the last 20 plus years.
