The Right Amount of Crazy. St Philip's College & Griffiths House, Alice Springs - 75 Years

$75.00

The Territory is the frontier of Australia and Alice Springs is the uncrowned capital of the Outback, made a reality by the pioneering characters dedicated to its survival.

 

It is a place of adventure and the unusual, and it’s fortunate that individuals and governments have seen the purpose in supporting settlement, education and development in such a remote location.

 

Nevertheless it does take more than “a little bit of crazy” to settle there, survive and make things happen: it takes ‘The Right Amount Of Crazy’.

 

This history of St Philip’s College and Griffiths House is a story about people dedicated to providing education for Outback children. It is a book about pioneering, determination, risk taking and characters such as Rev Harry Griffiths, Rev Dr Fred McKay and Chris Tudor playing on a remote stage, who indeed generated ‘The Right Amount of Crazy’—for without this and without them it would never have happened.
