“Based on a true story, 'No Hopers' shows a glimpse into the education system and its lack of being able to deal adequately with victims–both staff and students, despite the support from various agencies such as FACS. The plot revolves around two such victims.”

• “Back in 1998 Margaret Harold Roberts and Wendy Danforth launched Going Bonkers (ISSN 1067-1366) magazine from Palm Beach, Florida. The magazine was a wonderful collection of self-help, health and humor topics. Margaret and Wendy had hard time making a go from the self-help and funny magazine, so they changed it to a dog humor magazine. That did not work too.”–Going Bonkers?

• “The performance season was dedicated to the late Wendy Danforth, a dedicated staff member who lost her courageous battle with cancer last year. Two of her 2006 Year 12 Drama students, Sian Kerr-Pilling and Jack Fleming, generously donated their time not only to do Front of House for this year’s class, but also to be part of a dedication to Wendy at the start of the production each night. Wendy’s spirit was represented by sunflowers that were placed in Susan’s garden to the tune of Eva Cassidy’s version of Sting’s ‘Fields of Gold’ (one of her favourite songs, which was played at her funeral), making Wendy a living part of the Drama production. Wendy, may you forever walk carefree through beautiful fields of gold… Anita Baltutis, Drama.”–http://www.eynesbury.sa.edu.au/college/uploads/File/Newsletters/Newsletters%202007/July%202007%20Newsletter%20without%20photos.pdf, accessed March 20, 2008.
