I attended the Ballarat High School awards night tonight. It was great to see kids from a fantastic state s condors school pick up awards for their academic,sport and artistic achievements for 2014.

Taliban militants rampaged through the army-run school in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa's capital of Pakistan and killed at least 130 people, most of them children, in one of the bloodiest attacks in recent Pakistan history.
