Growing Up in Australia: The Longitudinal Study of Australian Children turned ten this year! We would like to thank everyone who has answered our questions over the years. Without your participation the study would not be the success it is today. At Growing Up in Australia we really appreciate the time you have taken out of your busy lives to be part of this study. We have loved seeing how you have grown and changed over the last ten years and hope you will continue to share your story with us in the years to come!
Have you seen the YouTube clip celebrating ten years of Growing Up in Australia?
To get a picture of what it is really like to grow up in Australia we need to talk to a variety of Australian teenagers. We can NEVER replace you! Because this is a longitudinal study it is important that we talk to the same people every time we visit. Researchers are very interested in looking at how people change and grow over many years. Your story is unique.

These sweet cookie jar mixes make perfect gifts for family and friends and are fun and easy to make.
Layer each ingredient into the jar in the order above. Make sure you pack each ingredient down firmly so everything will fit into the jar. Pop on the lid and make sure it's on tight.
On a piece of card board, write out the following list of extra ingredients and cooking instructions. Attach the cardboard to the top of the jar with a piece of ribbon.
Pre heat the oven to a moderate heat (160°C -180°C) and grease your baking tray with some oil or butter.
In a large bowl, mix together the butter, vanilla extract and the egg. Add in the contents of the jar and stir until all the ingredients are mixed together.
Using a teaspoon, spoon your cookie mixture onto your greased baking tray. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
Place on a rack to cool, then pop them back in the jar.
