What Went Right - 31 DEC 2016
Final day of the year, and here's three stories about "what went right" (as opposed to "what went wrong") from the mainstream media that I read.
Perth Modern takes out third consecutive Beazley Medal by Emily Piesse (ABC Western Australia)
An article about the winners of the top awards for academic achievement in the WA Certificate of Education this year. I was somewhat pleased to note the winner of the Beasley Medal for Vocational Education and Training was won by a student from Esperance Senior High School - nice to see the country being represented in these awards.
Simple pleasures can help, not hinder people to reach daily goals, research finds by Emma Wynne (720 ABC Perth, ABC Radio Western Australia)
Researchers at Melbourne University have evidence to support what a lot of people are learning independently - taking a bit of time out in between chores to do things which make you happy helps you to stick to the task of reaching your goals.
Early Indigenous folk songs collated, promoted by Mission Songs project by Nance Haxton (AM, ABC Radio)
An article about the Mission Songs project, curated by singer Jessie Lloyd, which collects songs from Aboriginal communities which were removed to missions starting in the 19th century.
So there's my three for the day. If you've found any stories about "what went right" in your news feeds, why not share them in the comments?
