Obituary - Dr Brian Trainor (Feb 24th 1948 - July 12th 2013) Following a two-and-half-year journey with cancer, Brian Trainor passed peacefully into the arms of Christ, surrounded by his family. At his funeral he was described as ‘a man who lived at peace with his God and with his neighbour’. Many staff and students from Tabor Adelaide will remember Brian for his lyrical Irish brogue, his sharp intellect, his love of learning and teaching, his faith in Christ and his positive representation of the Roman Catholic tradition. Joining the faculty of Tabor in January of 2004, Brian taught in the areas of philosophy and sociology, initiated and ran the Philosophy Club and contributed to the development and life of the Humanities programs and faculty as well as Tabor as a whole. In short he was part of the collage of what makes an institution like Tabor a community of interest, learning and spiritual renewal. Although Brian’s love of life, family and vocation was fierce he chose to embrace his condition as part of the spiritual journey. On the very day we heard the news of Brian’s passing we also received a package in the mail, essays that Brian had graded just two weeks prior. His latest publication, Christ, Society and the State (ATF Press) recently received a highly appreciative review in the journal, Zadok Perspectives. To the end, Brian continued to live out his academic vocation and we honestly never heard him complain. Brian, we thank you for your many gifts and the contribution of your personality and way of being amongst us. You are sorely missed and fondly remembered. To Marie and the extended family that she and Brian nurtured we extend our sympathy and prayers as they grieve for a much loved husband, father, grandfather and friend.
03 | Liberamenté. “freely, with liberty” Congratulations Jonty Czuckwicki Tabor Adelaide teamed up with Me. Magazine to give one lucky writer, blogger or poetic peep a chance to have their written piece published in Me. Mag and lunch with award winning author Rosanne Hawke. Jonty Czuckwicki a writer from Glenunga International High School was announced the winner of the competition, ‘Write with Me’, for his piece ‘Devils Crossroad’. Jonty entered the competition as he ‘saw an opportunity that he needed to jump on.’ At 16 years of age, Jonty is a co-author and freelance journalist. He became inspired to be a writer after reading many books. He said, “The more you do something the more interesting that road gets. The amount of books I was reading, and how engaged I was in the field of literacy inspired me to do it myself.” Upon visiting Tabor, Jonty described his experience as ‘absolutely heart warming, welcoming and an amazing place’. From his meeting with Rosanne Hawke, ‘he learnt a lot about writing, the industry and making tough, quick decisions’. He was given step by step advice tailored to him, and advised as to what he needs to do to become a successful author. In addition, Rosanne provided invaluable industry knowledge on publishing and creativity. Jonty likes to write stories that everyone will enjoy. He would like to see his books published in book stores and available online. His dream is to own a publishing house that combines an audio visual experience. We at Tabor Adelaide congratulate Jonty Czuckwicki on winning this wonderful opportunity and wish him all the best with his future endeavours.
