We all want to be happy and there are many books and teachers in the world that try to help people be happier. Therefore, we may think that we’re “doing it wrong.” One of the most difficult things for us to accept is that there is no realm where there’s only happiness and there’s no suffering.

What's changed - - The Australian Curriculum v8.0 Revisions have been made to the previously available Australian Curriculum to make the curriculum easier to manage, particularly for primary schools, to simplify the curriculum’s presentation and to strengthen the focus on literacy.

The bleaching event was due to higher-than-usual water temperatures in 2015 and 2016, caused by an El Niño event and global climate change. And of course…it got hotter
