  1. Hi Chris

    Thank you so much for reconnecting and providing such clear information that gives clear context and direction. It is good to hear your message and I look forward to hearing of your future plans. That logo certainly represents so much of your narrative.

  2. “Good Morning Mr Sarra” has spread your messages of empowerment and it has been worth all of your hard work.
    The independence of the Stronger Smarter Institute will always be crucial to its reach and authenticity.
    I hope this alliance of great educators will keep aiming higher, expecting more and believing in that constant learning you share with so many.

  3. Chris what wild ride are you going to take us on now. Now at Moree so getting closer to Queensland..not sure that is a good thing but what is, is the passion and inspiration I received from my involvement in Stronger Smarter. Tell me more about where you are heading>

  4. Hi Chris,

    I have been following your work for about 18 months now. I am doing my Masters Degree in Indigenous Sector Management, but I am been researching in the area of English Language Learning an ESL teacher.

    I hope to go on to my Ph.D later this year and my thesis will be on helping Indigenous students with their English to help them with the NAPLAN testing.

    I have just finished your book ‘Good Morning, Mr Sarra” and enjoyed all the insights into what you have accomplished. This and your various sites help me feel connected to what you are doing and they are helping me find my direction in this field. I hope one day that my research will bring some benefit to Indigenous students, it’s a dream at the moment, but determined to make it a reality.

    Will keep following all your updates.

  6. Hi Chris

    You & the Stronger Smarter team are inspiring and I hope to work and learn with some of you in the future.

    You may not remember but I tweeted you when I felt discouraged about our education system while on my last prac in May and your encouraging & strong reply really helped. It’s good to know there are teachers and institutions out there trying to make positive change. Thank you.

  7. Hi Chris,
    My Aunty Tory knew your mother Norma and just yesterday was singing your praises to me all about your amazing accomplishment through the “Stronger Smarter Summit” and your book “Good Morning Mr Sarra”! I am the mother of an indigenous year 12 student who with our support has struggled through high school to become a primary school educator. At the start of the week we visited the indigenous support sector at the USQ Toowoomba Campus about her avenues into university. After leaving the USQ and hearing all about and feeling the support from day one I made the comment to my daughter Courtney ” who would have known there is such wonderful support through university for indigenous people? If only there was the same support through high school maybe more indigenous people would actually make it to the university experience”!
    It was when I spoke to my Aunty Tory about how excited and happy we were for Courtney to have a strong support network in uni that my Aunty mentioned your work and book! We are both looking forward to reading “Good Morning Mr Sarra” and look forward to hearing from you in the future 🙂

  8. How great is is to see Stronger Smarter up and running again. Congratulations and all the best. Very proud of you Chris and your team.
