The adventures of the courageous redheaded heroine made popular in Ludwig Bemelmans' classic children's books. The orphaned Madeline, Hatty Jones in her first and only film, must try and save her beloved boarding school from its impending sale by widowed owner, Lord Covington. Backed by sympathetic schoolmistress Miss Clavel and a host of less than angelic fellow boarders, the irascible redhead has her work cut out for her, especially when she is caught up in a bungled kidnapping.

TAX BALANCE The 2016 Australian budget has now been revealed and one of the biggest talking points is planned tax changes. Some people and companies are in line for tax cuts, while other companies will soon be getting taxed more. But if the countrys deficit is growing to 37 billion dollars next year, why arent everyones taxes going up? We take a closer look at relationship between taxes and the economy to find out. IVORY TRADE Authorities in Kenya have been fighting poachers and the illegal wildlife trade for decades. And last week, they took the dramatic step of burning more than 100 tonnes of seized elephant tusks. The aim was to send a message to the world. But some think they may have made a mistake. ** Ivory Trade will be next weeks BtN #AskaReporter topic! ** TEACHER RESOURCES INCLUDED Learning areas: Science / Science as a Human Endeavour / Use and influence of science: Science and technology contribute to finding solutions to a range of contemporary issues; these solutions may impact on other areas of society and involve ethical considerations (Year 7) Humanities and Social Sciences / Knowledge and Understanding / Geography: The importance of environments, including natural vegetation, to animals and people (Year 4) The main characteristics of the continents of Africa and South America and the location of their major countries in relation to Australia (Year 4) SHORT SIGHTED KIDS Over the past 50 years, short-sightedness, or myopia, has increased dramatically. Many researchers have blamed increased screen time for the growing problem. But now, some scientists think its actually our reluctance to go outside as often that is the real cause for concern. TEACHER RESOURCES INCLUDED Learning areas: Science / Science Understanding / Physical sciences: Light from a source forms shadows and can be absorbed, reflected and refracted (Year 5) Science / Science as a Human Endeavour / Use and influence of science: Scientific understandings, discoveries and inventions are used to solve problems that directly affect peoples lives (Years 5 & 6) Science / Science Inquiry Skills / Communicating: Communicate ideas, explanations and processes in a variety of ways, including multi-modal texts (Years 5 & 6) Communicate ideas, findings and solutions to problems using scientific language and representations using digital technologies as appropriate (Years 7 & 8) English / Literacy / Creating Texts: Plan, draft and publish imaginative, informative and persuasive print and multimodal texts, choosing text structures, language features, images and sound appropriate to purpose and audience (Years 5 & 6) REFUGEE CAMP Kids camps usually aim to be a fun experience. But one camp in Norway is anything but fun. It attempts to give attendees a 24 hour glimpse into life as a refugee. But despite being a tough and gruelling event, Norwegian kids have signed up in huge numbers. Find out why next week. KOALA TRACKER To better protect endangered species, scientists often have to do massive surveys to work out how many there are in the wild and where theyre living. But some animals can be pretty tough to track down, like koalas that spend most of their time in the treetops. So one group of Australian researchers has come up with a pretty interesting way to track them down koala tracking dogs.
