That moment when an idea you pitched to your partner is recognised with a $6.9 million grant to the partner to expand the work.  That moment is unreal!  +Katrina Falkner  who would have thought that phone call would lead to this?  Love the work you and your team have done.

Australian students from rural, remote, disadvantaged and Indigenous schools stand to benefit from a $6.9 million Turnbull Government initiative to improve digital technologies training for teachers.

You're a forward thinker, Sally! Even when the Digital Tech curriculum endorsement was up in the air, you pushed on!

Great brunch. Delicious poached eggs

Great until the wedding descended on the resort. There was no warning when we booked that they would be having a giant party so it turned from a quiet, relaxed holiday to backpacker Sairee beach. Not impressed that they only informed us on the day. The rooms are stacked right on top of the restaurant so the noise travels straight up and you can't avoid it. This is the most expensive place to stay on the island, and the food & beverage are very very expensive for what you get/compared to the rest of the island. Considering what we spent on diving & our stay I'm very disappointed. Make sure you get it in writing that there will be no weddings or parties if you are going here for peace and quiet.

Fantastic food. The 'strange flavour white cut chicken' is to die for. The best surprise dish on the menu. Cocktails are great too.

Despite being a "5 star" hotel there are several things lacking in experience. The hotel is great in decor and amenities, but is flawed in how it operates with regards to business travelers and events. The noise from a function at the floating restaurant (onsite and owned by the hotel) went on until well after 1.30am in the morning. Despite complaints they did nothing because they took a booking until that time. If they aren't going to double glaze the windows then they shouldn't be able to hold events with loud music running until after mid-night - it compromises the guest experience. Will NEVER stay here again.

Great breakfast before grocery shopping. The poached eggs with goat feta and mushroom was fantastic. Shame its inside but don't overlook it as the food is great. The staff are super friendly also.

Great experience with the dive instructors, however the shop administration and owner lets it down. They are incredibly helpful while getting you to sign up for a course, but loose interest after they have your money. We've had a series of incorrect dates provided and had to clarify things umpteen times with them. Today was the last straw. Giving me an incorrect wetsuit size meant 5 hours of sitting in the car while others dived. While they did refund my money there was no apology from the owner who was manning the store. Apparently it's my fault for being a woman (and hard to fit) and not buying my own. My bad for thinking booking the correct suit 2 weeks in advance and paying for it guaranteed service. Will not use the shop again.
