Best of luck to everyone beginning their HSC today! Let’s hope all of that study has paid off. It’s interesting to see yet another cohort of young people move into that post-school phase of their lives. . So many wonderful opportunities await and we hope to stay in contact with the hundreds of young people who have been involved in BYDS’ projects over the years… they roll on and on.
It did seem like summer was coming, but something happened and I am wearing layers again, the magnolia below came and went, but native plants are blooming and you can feel the new life blasting greenly, gently into the world.
BYDS are now geographically a part of Canterbury Bankstown City Council; the largest LGA in NSW, more people than Tasmania they say. What opportunities might exist in that for BYDS? A re-brand? 20,000 + young people to work with? I think it might be a good time to think a little outside the standard box. It might get interesting over the next few months.
