February CHILD Magazine

GOT EVENT FATIGUE?

In 2016, I know what I don’t want, which is why the February issue of CHILD magazine (out now) addresses a super important issue for all of us: Permission Note Fatigue – the cause and effect on parents of too many school events, volunteer requests, newsletters and notes coming home – and what you and your school can do about it. It’s time to tone down the crazy.

You can read more about the Feb issue here and watch our video of our CHILD Cover Kid Search winner! Ariana was a total stand out for me among the kids who entered our search. I loved her spirit and confidence. I worked with the fun team at Network Ten’s Studio 10 – Sarah, Joe, Ita and Jessica – to cast their favourite votes, as well as the fabulous Robyn from The Carousel. I think it’s one of my favourite covers. I created something that was a little bit The Belles of St Trinians circa 1954, a bit Chrissy Amphlete and maybe even a little ACDC, but really just lots of fun.

I hope your new school year isn’t too overwhelming and you’re finding your feet in February.

NEXT TOP MODEL

This May 2015 cover shoot is undoubtedly one of my favourites as Editor of CHILD.

That day we had two beautiful little ballerinas running around the set belting out lyrics from Frozen’s Let it Go while pirouetting their hearts out. The girls live with Down Syndrome and it’s about time they got a shot at a magazine cover.

The Australian magazine industry’s Publish Awards 2015 agreed as did thousands of social media likers who shared the cover.
