Molly Pearson is a young Biology teacher with two passions in her life: a strong commitment to protecting wildlife; and a desire to encourage the children in her classes to feel the same enthusiasm for Nature. When her class decide they would like to restore the school’s neglected and vandalised nature corner her hopes are raised and challenged at the same time. The hurdles that she meets along the way will include bullied and bullying pupils, as well as the expected ones of finance and willing manpower. But leaping those fences does not prepare the ambitious Molly for a dramatic fire and the confusion of a new passion in her life, in the form of Oliver Shrimpton. Will he become that significant someone, or is he just another obstacle for her to overcome? G J Griffiths' latest novel, in the So What! series of stories, is still based firmly around the events that take place within the "walls" of Birch Green High School. It follows some of the trials and tribulations of Molly Pearson, a previous novice teacher who was mentored by Robert Jeffrey - the main character from the first book. Molly's efforts to spread the important message, about protecting wildlife and the natural environment, reflect something that has always been important to the author. For that reason some of the proceeds from the sales of this book will be donated to wildlife charities. Although this book is an exciting novel telling the story of schoolchildren who want to protect garden wildlife, it also contains several chapters towards the end with plenty of helpful information for lovers of nature, and who want to take a fresh look at making their garden a wildlife garden.

So What! Stories or Whatever! is a collection of stories about the people who are found in a contemporary High School in England; tales that will make the reader laugh, cry, think deeply or differently, and maybe even be inspired or impressed. It generally follows the early and subsequent career of Robert Jeffrey, as he attempts to prove to himself that he can motivate the children he teaches to want to learn about Science – and maybe become scientists one day. All through the book we are made aware of the joys and disappointments experienced by pupils and their teachers. The book tends to concentrate in the latter part on an unpleasant boy Kyle, who is a bully, and his effect on two other boys, Adam and Nigel Shantra. Unknown to Mr Jeffrey he also affects the way his teaching job changes at the exact time that Robert really feels he has become a “good teacher”. The three paths of Nigel, Kyle and Robert Jeffrey converge several years later, in the concluding chapters, to provide an unexpected twist to the tale. Waterloo Road or Grange Hill meets Gervase Phinn? – well, maybe! Whether you love this book or hate it you will discover that the stories about its individuals will stay in your memory for a long time. With over twenty years teaching experience behind him, G J Griffiths has brought to the reader some of the stories about the children he taught, in this amusing and often poignant book. Parents, teachers, pupils and students will all recognise the characters and their tales. With the ever-present controversy about changing the education system this is a timely illustration of what is to be found in the classrooms of the contemporary High School.

The characters in this collection of five short stories by renowned poet Barry Spacks are poets, screen-writers, painters, musicians, and actors struggling with the conflicts between their demanding muses and their desires–carnal and professional. Spiritual cravings tug at them as well, and deliverance sometimes comes from unlikely bodhisattvas. Written with verve and wit, the stories are enlightening as well as entertaining.

CHRISTIANS FOR CHRIST is a collection of personal spiritual musings . Each small section is essentially Independent. The text may be absorbed from cover to cover or by simply dipping in and out of separate sections. Within the text various entries refer to - JESUS CHRIST MARY THE MOTHER OF JESUS ST. MARCELLIN CHAMPAGNAT ST. MARY MACKILLOP CHRISTIAN EDUCATION OF YOUTH THE CHURCH INSTITUTION CHRISTIAN APPROACH TO LIFE and CHRISTIAN UNITY . These sections are not independently documented. The thinking behind this and the lack of punctuation is to me a reflection of the nature of personal spirituality which is very much a living organism constantly growing and always multi-faceted and integrated with the complexities of the Christian individual living life here on earth along with the very many other Christians. I hope this part of my own spiritual journey documented with the strong influence of the Holy Spirit is helpful to readers particularly with respect to our personal relationship with Jesus Christ. This is dedicated to my mother Elisabeth who passed away January 25 2012. Jim Timmermans Cert. Ed. Dip. Tch. Grad. Dip. R.Ed. M.Ed. (JCU). Jan. 2012. Brisbane. QLD.
