Mark Potter 2015-09-21 14.13.08 (2)

Principal, Mark Potter has a lot to celebrate with the Berhampore School Centenary on the calendar next month. Although the school has experienced many changes over it’s 100 years , it seems to sustain an inclusive culture for all abilities, is one of the most culturally diverse schools in the region and has a healthy allocation of refugee families. Yet the kids are known for being “happy” and the school seems to form the heart of the Berhampore community.

Tony Chappell IMG_5391Toby Chappell, is the founder of the charity Skate For Hope. After skateboarding saved him from suicide, he believes that skateboarding can also save the lives of others. So while skateboarding from Cape Reinga to Bluff from November 2015 to January 2016 he will be visiting schools, churches, skate parks and youth centers to tell his story and encourage others to stand their ground and take action against mental health issues. He is an incredible young man, who is having amazing things happen to him after deciding to put as much effort into living instead of into dying.
