Gemma Sisia makes ‘boundless energy’ look like an understatement! Not only does she run the school, plan and manage the building program, run her own household with two young boys, and fund raise, but she has also found the time and energy to write a book about it all. She’s a genuine force of nature!
‘St Jude’s’ will be published by Pan Macmillan in April 2007. Aussies should look out for Gemma’s whirlwind book launch tour in April, and everyone can get more info about the book here.
I am sure that the growing network of supporters will be delighted to get hold of the book and learn some of the more obscure details of Gemma’s life story. Growing up as the only girl with seven older brothers would fill a book all by itself!
Here is the provisional schedule.

We are working on a get together in Sydney on 5 May for school supporters. I’ll keep you updated with details as they get firmed up. It will be so exciting to meet some of the many people who have made the School of St Jude the success that it is.
