Another set of three things from the mainstream media about "what went right", rather than "what went wrong".

WA Government grant to kick start irrigation project on Roebuck Plains cattle station by Matt Brann (ABC Rural, Western Australia)

The Nyamba Buru Yawuru organisation (an Indigenous group) has won a $250,000 grant through the WA Government's "Royalties for Regions" program to irrigate land on Roebuck Plains station, near Broome. The irrigated land will be used to grow fodder for cattle, rather than shipping up fodder from Narrogin in the south-west of the state.

Meet the kids who spend their summer holidays learning Latin by Belinda Sommer (Saturday Extra on ABC RN)

The annual Sydney Latin Summer School attracted 230 people this year. The school is open to people aged 13 and over, giving an opportunity to learn and practice the language. While not actually a preparation course for the HSC or VCE, it can give students for either of those courses a bit of a boost.

Toddler reunited with family after being found alone in Melbourne's west by ABC Victoria (uncredited)

"A three-year-old boy found alone in the front yard of a home at Melton, west of Melbourne, late last night has been reunited with his family."

So there's my three for today. If you've found stories in your news feeds which are about "what went right" rather than "what went wrong", why not share a link to them in the comments?
