Book Number: 51900
Brolga Publishing 2008 8vo softcover 282pp very good. Index. Illustrated with in-text b&w photo's. This is the story of a long-established school nestled from colonial times on a small site on the peninsula between the Pacific Ocean and the Sydney Harbour – a seeming demi-paradise for children to grow up in. The school itself, however, was often challenged by overcrowding and serious lack of resources. Many children came from families of humble means and impoverished circumstances. Teachers were often presented with difficult challenges and pressures in cramped conditions during wartime, peacetime, depression and prosperity. And yet an all-conquering vibrant spirit seemed to prevail. From the beginning of the 20th century onwards, the school became a potent nursery for sporting champions, scholars, and future Australian identities and leaders, including many Olympic swimmers and several national rugby stars as well as accomplished businesswomen, academics, journalists, artists and prominent professionals. The famous included the war hero Roden Cutler, the international swimmers and surfers Andrew "Boy" Charlton, Ernest Henry, Max Riddington, and Noel "Tiger" Ryan, and rugby greats like Rob Heming, Rex Mossop, Charlie Eastes and others. And then there was the poet Bruce Beaver and the philosopher John Passmore.

The Plug-In Drug: Television, Computers, and Family Life
Book Number: 48268
Penguin 2002 8vo softcover 352pp index, b/w illus. very good. Editorial ReviewsnFrom Library JournalnAfter 25 years, Winn (Children Without Childhood) has completely revised and updated her landmark study of the influence of television on children and family life by incorporating findings based on recent research and investigating the impact of the home computer, the VCR, and the video game terminal. She has also shifted the focus from the TV programs children watch to the negative effects of television on children's play, imagination, and school achievement. Although Winn pinpoints many key shortcomings of television, this study is not argumentative; Winn instead aims to stress the quality of family life without television, to show educators and parents how to control the medium, and to offer practical suggestions on how to improve family life not dependent on television. This refreshingly candid and inviting study is highly recommended for both public and academic libraries. Leroy Hommerding, Fort Myers Beach P.L. Dist., FLnCopyright 2002 Cahners Business Information, Inc. Product DescriptionnHow does the passive act of watching television and other electronic media-regardless of their content-affect a developing child's relationship to the real world? Focusing on this crucial question, Marie Winn takes a compelling look at television's impact on children and the family. Winn's classic study has been extensively updated to address the new media landscape, including new sections on: computers, video games, the VCR, the V-Chip and other control devices, TV programming for babies, television and physical health, and gaining control of your TV.
