I was privileged to give at talk at St Kevins primary school recently and the Northern District Times has done a lovely news piece on the day. I take my hat off to the insightful teaching at Brett Salakis who encourages his young students to problem-solve and to think about what might be issues of the future. I was there talking about Antarctica and climate change as one of the threats facing this huge continent, and indeed the whole planet. The children were really enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. I came away feeling that there really is hope we can solve the weighty issues facing us all. St Kevins appears ready for the challenge.
