OzKids Magazine

Feb 2007

Another year over and another one just begun. What a year 2006 was! With triumphs and tragedies and the worst water shortage and driest season we have ever had. Some of our writers have written of the drought and how to save water. Others have written about our heroes who have lost their lives at war or our heroes who have fought to save our wildlife and environment. It is wonderful when life’s experiences are put down on paper so in years to come we can look back and read what happened at that time.

Some stories are based on some fact with fictitious characters added in. For example, I remember reading a book based on the story of the ‘Titanic’ and the writer put herself in the book as the main character. It gave me an insight into what it would have been like to have been there on the maiden, and unfortunately, only voyage of the great ship. By using some facts from our own lives we can create a story that sends the reader back into that time. You may not realise it now but everything you do and the way in which you do it may be different to the way your parents did things or how your own children will do things in the future. Ask your parents or grandparents what it was like as they were growing up. I am sure you could come up with some interesting facts to write about.

Just remember when sending your entries in, make sure that they are legible. Colourful headings and pictures are fi ne but not where the text is on your work. If we can’t read them then we cannot publish them. When typing please use standard fonts for all entries.

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
