Jschool 2007


I arrived on Thursday 16 August around 7.40pm. I was really looking forward to my internship at the Cairns Post and to go up north. I planned my trip in detail and I got a cheap flight ticket – so cheap that my luggage didn’t arrive. There I was, standing with a bag full of(…)

Back in the Class Room

Its been ages since i spent the day in the class room and even though i didn’t get in till the end of Desleys class the day wore me out. Teeline left my brain numb! The last few weeks I’ve been busy with broadcast training working Sky News and spending time with the sports crew(…)


Week two is half over and I have to say, they use way to many commas here. It is kind of like a comma addiction. They are randomly plunked down in sentences on a whim and used somewhat erradically. Half the time there is a comma before and in a list and half the time(…)


Hello everyone. How are you all? Hope you are all well. Robyn. It sounds like you’re having fun over in your home country, with your pets and grandma! And i’m glad to hear the wedding went well. Jo. I hope everything is all going well for you and the children are better? How is the(…)

Week one down

Today wrapped up my first week and I have to say, my experience here was a lot more relaxed than Joe’s! Today we all went home around 3:30 – 4 as we got the paper out around 1:30 and then, since its a lobg weekend and the paper doesn’t run unitl Tuesday afternoon, we all(…)


Hey guys, Good to hear you’re all going well in the internships. How’s the coast Jo I was supposed to go back this weekend but I have more pressing matters at hand. You mustve had a wild internship there with the storms and the floods and that young bloke getting sliced in the face. It’s(…)

Day three going well

First off, Jo, I really hope Louis (sp?) is ok. That’s scary. Secondly, Jo, how do you do it? I’m worn out trying to get up in the morning, walk the dog, feed the horses, work all day, get home (1/2 hour drive each way) feed the horses, feed the dog, cook for Grandma, walk(…)

Well hi everyone

Okay so wow I thought I posted a few weeks ago – but obviously it didn’t actually ‘post’ – I’m sure you’ve all experienced that. So first I’d like to ask everyone if they remember John saying REALLY early on to check the spelling of people’s names carefully? Well how many of you noticed he(…)

Life gets in the way

Good morning all Thank heavens for a family friendly news room. My Big boy has had an asthma event and a meltdown in the absence of his mum. I’m returning to Brisbane tonight to sort the whanau (family) out. Returning to the Daily on Monday was so much better than the first week. Just being(…)


ah-ha, finally in after the system decided not to reject me after some awkward attempts to enter! How is everyone, your blogs are interesting to read. Anyway this is my second post, so i have a fair bit to say, here i go…. Last week was so much fun, got a front page story which(…)


ps means read after the other post but since it gets posted chronologically…you’ll get this first…one of my co-workers at the Whitehorse Star is from Toronto, studied at UQ in Brisbane, knows Desley and has heard of John and is now working in Whitehorse. That is a really freaky coincedence if you ask me. Anyway,(…)
