Sept/Oct 2020


Let’s face it, 2020 has been one helluva year, with many families and businesses worrying about making ends meet.

So, dust off your calculator, because this is our Family Finances issue!

We’ve called in the experts from Your First Home Co. to explain the many ways families can buy their first home and grow their financial security through property.

We have tips from Evolve Accounting & Advice on how to set up a family budget without losing your mind in the process. And the clever peeps at Financial Basics share the essential rules to teach your teens about money.

As well as counting the dollars, with so much happening at our local schools recently, we have a bumper Education section. We wander through the idyllic rainforest of Immanuel Lutheran College to check out their Eco Shed and environmental programmes. We visit Unity College to find out about their resident bees, the Co-Op Cafe and their plans for an Urban Farm. We also pop over to Suncoast Christian College to explore their ever-popular bush kindy programme.

Plus, with kids’ activities happily coming out of lockdown (yay!) and the smell of spring in the air, we also have the region’s best family friendly events for September and October. And, as always, the issue is packed with the region’s latest news, reviews and more.
