Well thank you very much Caroline and Mia, congratulations - congratulations on this wonderful book, ‘Work, Strife, Balance’. You know John Howard used to call this the barbeque stopper issue.
It’s great to be here at Bondi Public, to see all these bright young children - great minds, the nation’s future - dedicated teachers, a charismatic headmaster.
The work you do is so important. You are the healthcare professionals to whom Australians turn in their moments of greatest need. You treat us from the time we’re born, and through every stage of life.
I acknowledge that we are here on the land of the Wurundjeri people whose country extends to the north of the Birrarung, and the Boonwurrung people whose country extends to the south.
So Ken, thank you so much for everything that you do. Mary, thank you for painting this portrait. Thank you for revealing what we all know, that Anna lights Ken up.
Australia will increase its contribution to the NATO-led Resolute Support training mission, in order to help Afghan forces secure their country and fight the global scourge of terrorism.

The Australian Government has agreed to increase the Australian Defence Force train, advise and assist mission in Afghanistan by 30 personnel, from 270 to approximately 300 people.
Thank you very much for your kind introduction. It is wonderful to be here at CEDA and with so many of my parliamentary colleagues.
Cyberspace is the new frontier of espionage. It is the new frontier of warfare. It’s a new frontier of threats to Australian governments, to families and businesses.
