A Ginnie & Pinney Update

It’s been too long!

Firstly, I want to thank you for your patience and for those who have recently, or not so recently subscribed! And, of course, a big shout out to our Queensland teachers!

Since my last blog in October, writing a new blog has been on my mind. I am not sure why it has taken so long. Perhaps two bouts of Covid, a very elderly parent’s passing and numerous responsibilities have kept me away from this.

Hopes Dashed 🙁

Some of you may have seen on social media that TV producer, Gillian Carr from Moody Street Animation had optioned Ginnie & Pinney for a TV series. Sadly the ABC has rejected the concept which left Winnie and I (and Gillian) more than disappointed.

Audio Book released through the ABC

On a brighter note the ABC have published Ginnie & Pinney audio books available from Booktopia and other platforms. Audible is offering it for free for the next 30 days which is great for encouraging children’s listening!


Online Professional Development Module

So despite the ABC rejection and true to the emotional theme of resilience we are moving forward with our next resource, an online PD module to augment the Ginnie & Pinney materials as many of you have asked for. Dr Tessa Weadman, from the School of Education at La Trobe University has written four modules and last week we filmed her and a number of enthusiastic children at La Trobe Children’s Community Centre. We are planning for this to go live early next year if not sooner! Watch our socials for the announcement.

So back to my previous October’s blog which focused on fine and gross motor skills I will plan to do another blog in the next week or so with more ideas on this topic.

Have a great week.

Until next time.
