Tony’s sessions were highly informative and stimulating for the students! He has a calm manner that reassures and encourages students to think and write as potential journalists. The students were engaged with the subject matter which were current significant issues presented in the Australian and world –wide media. At the conclusion of the session, junior students asked me to please have these sessions next year so that they could attend.
