Helen Reddy (YG 1958)

Congratulations to Fiona Eagger (YG 1979), Producer of the film, “Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears”, released on Thursday 26 February 2020.

In her debut cinematic adventure, join detective-extraordinaire, the Hon. Miss Phryne Fisher, as she embarks on a globe-trotting romp of mystery and mayhem across the exotic 1920s deserts of the Negev, glamorous manor-house ballrooms, and the darkened back alleys of London. After freeing a young Bedouin girl, Shirin Abbas, from her unjust imprisonment in Jerusalem, Miss Fisher begins to unravel a wartime mystery concerning a priceless jewel, an ancient curse and the truth behind the suspicious disappearance of Shirin’s forgotten tribe.

Are you stuck inside and in need of some fun? Are you unable to travel the exotic lands of adventure to take in Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears in cinemas? If so, don’t fret. You’re not alone, and we’ve got just the thing! We are excited to announce “Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears” is now available here for premium digital download.

Lorrae Mynard (YG 1997)

A special shout out and thank you to Lorrae Mynard (YG 1997) who has collaborated with OT Australia to create a free resource available to our Tintern and wider communities: Normal life has been disrupted: Managing the disruption caused by COVID-19.

The guide discusses aspects of daily life — things that you probably always took for granted and now are having to re-think. An occupational therapy framework is used to consider how productivity, leisure, self-care, your space, routine and roles may be impacted and to present suggestions and examples of how to adapt and manage the disruptions. This has been designed to help everyday people adapt to the changes. The link and/or pdf guide may be shared freely. There is also a poster that health professionals can use to promote the guide to consumers. Guide: https://bit.ly/2Ulksxz Poster: https://bit.ly/2xVuUEu. Lorrae has worked in a range of adult mental health services in Australia, Canada and the UK and is currently a Lead Occupational Therapist at Forensicare and a PhD candidate with Monash University, with a research focus on occupational formulation.
