This week is anti-poverty week and across the nation, events are being held to highlight the huge issues disadvantage can cause in our community. Most of us love a hit of beach cricket in summer. And the kids of far north Western Australia are no exception. So an Aussie foundation is now using a beach cricket tournament to encourage kids to make it to school each day. These days, transporting essential supplies like food, mail or building materials can be done by road, rail, sea or air. But back in Australia's early days, many of those options just weren't possible, so paddle steam boats were used. Plus, teacher resources for our stories on Antarctic Future and Cat Ban.
