A Buddhist monk got an errand from his teacher: to meditate for exactly 45 minutes. He has no watch; instead he is given two inscent sticks, and he is told that each of those sticks would completely burn in 1 hour. The sticks are not identical, and they burn with variant yet unknown rates (they are hand-made). So he has these two inscents and some matches: can he arrange for exactly 45 minutes of meditation?

Today at Sandringham College, we were lucky enough to receive a visit from Minister Dixon, the Minister for Education.
Minister Dixon was taken into a formal meeting in the Conference Room with Howard Kelly, (Independent Consultant), Allen McAuliffe, (College Principal), Heath McMillin, Suzanne Reinhardt, and Chris Martin, (Campus Principals), our local MP Murray Thompson, as well as members of the College Council, and representatives of the teaching staff.
The meeting was well received by all parties, and various discussions on the future of Sandringham College were put forward by Howard Kelly.
What was clear was the positive environment surrounding the College and the want to provide the best choice for Public Education in the area.
