This incredible woman - State Member for Mount Ommaney Jess Pugh MP - has just gifted copies of FLY to her local high schools Corinda State High School and Centenary State High School.

We are so grateful for such progressive and supportive leaders like Jess.

We have had a few people reaching out letting us know that FLY is hard to get copies of at the moment from bookstores and even through Booktopia!! It seems we aren't alone in this and measures have been put in place by Penguin to get more stock out to retailers asap!

If you are ...chasing copies of FLY the best bet right now is: Dymocks, who have stock ready to ship! (link below)

Let's hope this issue resolves quickly and in time to ensure high school graduates also don't miss out on a copy!

Bookstores facing supply chain crisis ahead of Christmas rush

Australia's independent bookstores are facing a critical supply crunch heading into their busiest period, with smaller booksellers worried they will...

Dr William Sultmann AM (Dip T, B Ed St, BA, Dip Psych, Grad Cert Theol M Ed St, M Ed Lead, PhD (UQ), PhD (ACU), MAPS, ACTA, FACE, FILM) was an incredible source of support during the creation phase of FLY.

He is a Deputy Dean, Associate Professor, teacher, psychologist, practical ...theologian and leader with senior executive and governance roles in education, health and welfare sectors across Government and Catholic sectors, and just down right one of the nicest humans you'd ever hope to meet.

I will never forget his kindness and support, as well as these impactful words he shared about FLY. 🙏🙏🙏

Back in September we shared a post about Applications for the Australian Secondary Principals' Association / ASIC Moneysmart funding for financial literacy projects being open.

Funding was worth up to $5,000 for each project.
They were looking for creative project ideas that:
... • teach students how to budget and plan
• integrate financial literacy across the whole school
• incorporate cross sector collaboration
• boost parents' understanding of good money management
• include the local community.

The very inspiring and progressive school St Teresa’s Catholic College based on the Sunshine Coast has just secured this funding, with copies of F.L.Y Handbook for students forming part of their funded project.

We want to say a huge congratulations to St Teresa’s, and any other schools who took advantage of this funding to help better develop financial literacy skills of their students.

We all know it’s needed and important, and these big brave actions are an incredible step in the right direction.

The most incredible thing happened!

An amazing teacher at a NSW high school bulk ordered a copy of FLY for each of their graduating students!

This has been a dream come true and the exact intent and vision we had for FLY.

With the principal of each high school ...throughout Australia responsible for the interpretation of the curriculum and decision on what resources the school will use, it is ultimately in the hands of each school to take advantage of this comprehensive and life changing resource for their students.

... and hopefully more will follow suit soon! 🙏🤞🤞🤞

If you want this great tool for your high school students too then please do share the word. It's impossible for us to reach them all (especially during covid times) but your introduction to FLY might be just what it takes to see this valuable resource in the hands of your high school students!
