Binnacle were honoured to have Rupert McCall address our 2015 'Turning Good into Great' VET in Schools Brisbane conference. Rupert regaled the audience with stories of his journey - from being asked to recite the poem 'A Bush Christening' for homework in grade 4 to responding to a request from the New York Fire Department to recite his work 'A Firefighter's Dream' on the 10th anniversary of 9/11. As a good friend of Binnacle, Rupert kindly stayed behind to answer a few questions about his journey to becoming - what many proclaim - the poet of our generation.
