OzKids Magazine

August 2006

Since the last issue I have had the opportunity of being invited to the Williamstown Literary Festival on the 13th of May. One of the features of the festival was the book launch of Paul Collins’ Quentarus series. Also enjoying the occasion were other Author Patrons Meredith Costain and Anna Ciddor dressed appropriately with the theme. My children and I couldn’t resist dressing up either.

Hazel Edwards has offered her book ‘Antarctic Dad’, and the opportunity to meet her and the book’s illustrator Kevin Burgemeestre, as a prize for using your artistic flair in drawing or writing. Read more on page 7 and see the review by psychologist Judy Parker.

Also included in this issue is a story sent to us from the Netherlands. These are sent from an Australian student currently living overseas with her family. It just shows how far the Internet can reach and how far your stories and poems can travel.

In Memory of Rob Leonard, Our Founder

It is with great sadness that the Board of Directors, staff, and myself from the Children’s Charity Network must inform you of the passing of our founder, Mr Rob Leonard, following a 14-month battle with Cancer. We pass our condolences to Rob’s friends and family at this terrible time.

Rob was a wonderful, caring man with a passion for service and charity. His vision to influence young Australians through literacy 25 years ago has impacted thousands, who will all be saddened by this news. In honour of Rob, I look forward to growing his vision and continuing to advocate for the value of literacy and arts.

Please take a moment to reflect upon Rob’s impact on you, and remember his uncompromising belief in the power of Art and Writing.

Rob, you will be truly missed but never far away from our thoughts. 

May Rob’s memory be a blessing.

Jason Woods
Children’s Charity Network Board and Community
