All the teachers in the collective have been marking like champions through the month, cleaning up their courses. I will be reporting back on all the teaching and learning from the PCC in June, but I wanted to report some radio work this month.

Debbie Hindley, our resident sporting expert, appeared on radio through the month offering commentary on the role of 'celebrity' in the behaviour of male footballers, whether it be their behaviour with women, alcohol, cars or drugs. Debbie has demonstrated a long term interest in this topic, and I am sure it will develop into a self standing piece for her in the next few months. However Debbie is continuing her commitment to not only scholarship, but the dissemination of that scholarship. Thank you Debbie for the work that you do.

Also, as this is our radio month, it is important to remind our PCC members about Leanne McRae's fortnightly radio appearances on RTR-FM discussing popular culture. Many members have already appeared on the show, including Debbie. Through Leanne's commitment and effort, it is an opportunity to discuss and think about the most important popular culture in a public forum. It is an incredibly important service.

Right — in this month of frantic work — I wish you a restful June.
