ROOKIE REPORTER - THE LEADERS: After weeks of campaigning, the 2016 federal election is nearly upon us. So now is the perfect time to learn more about some of the political leaders who've been campaigning hard for their parties ahead of the big day. Rookie Reporter Maya joins us for the final time to summarise who these leaders are and what they stand for.

It's called #nobrainnogame and comes hot on the heels of new guidelines from the Australian Medical Association designed to help protect kids from the damaging effects of head knocks. We find out more about this common sporting injury and find out why it's now being taken a lot more seriously. NAIDOC ART: Students at an Islamic school in Melbourne are working on a special art project for NAIDOC week. They're creating a mosaic that tells the story of the shared history between Aboriginal and Muslim people in Australia. We look back in time to learn more about this relationship and how it helped the country develop. TEACHING RESOURCES INCLUDED Learning Areas - History / Knowledge and Understanding: Days and weeks celebrated or commemorated in Australia (including Australia Day, Anzac Day, and National Sorry Day) and the importance of symbols and emblems Year 3 The diversity of Australia's first peoples and the long and continuous connection of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples to Country/Place (land, sea, waterways and skies) Year 4 The reasons people migrated to Australia and the experiences and contributions of a particular migrant group within a colony Year 5 Citizenship Knowledge and Understanding / Citizenship, diversity and identity: How groups, such as religious and cultural groups, express their particular identities; and how this influences their perceptions of others and vice versa Year 7 The Arts / Visual Arts: Explore ideas and artworks from different cultures and times, including artwork by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists, to use as inspiration for their own representations Years 3 & 4 PET THERAPY: For a lot of kids around Australia, exams are just around the corner. It can be a incredibly stressful time, so a school in Canberra has come up with the perr-fect way to help students to relax. Kittens! We take a look at the program and discover some of the other ways animals are used to their two-legged companions through tough times. INDIGENOUS OPERA STARS: Late last year, we visited Broken Hill to meet some Aboriginal kids learning to sing opera. The sessions were run by a group travelling throughout Australia on a mission to find singers to join their Indigenous kids choir. Now, that choir has assembled in Melbourne to perform alongside legendary singer Archie Roach.
