Ready-Ed Publications, a Western Australian based company, has built a reputation as publishers of Australian made, high quality, innovative, timesaving materials for teachers of students aged 5-15 years. In recent years, they have moved their focus away from blackline masters and onto text and reference materials for classrooms and libraries as a stepping stone towards the commercial booksellers and parent/teenager market. While this market is essentially a new avenue for Ready-Ed Publications, they hope to bring their knowledge and expertise in publishing student and teacher resources to a new market.

This book has been carefully reviewed by teenagers, teachers and representatives of key authorities, to ensure that content is factual, relevant and accurate. All contact numbers and websites were available at the time of printing.

Survival: Teen Island – The ultimate survival package for 15-18 year olds in Australia.
