And now, having spent 25 years in the classroom, having visited literally thousands of Australian schools, as one of the country's most successful authors, John Marsden intends to realise a dream. On this 485-hectare property, less than an hour from Melbourne, he's planning his perfect school. It's time, he says, to put his money where his mouth is.

JOHN MARSDEN: One of the first things a school should pay attention to is the physical environment, whether it's in the city or the country, that beauty is important and we should value it and we should surround young people around it so that they grow up in that atmosphere of beauty. What I want is a school full of surprises, a school that's innovative and flexible at the same time as we do maintain that academic standard. I want a school that's got a sense of humour. I want a school where we say "yes" to things instead of "no".

It seems like most schools have a banner fluttering from the flagpole with the word "no" written on it. In creating a school, I want the perfect school. I know I won't get it but I must always aspire to it.

John Marsden is a popular Australian children's author who's also spent a lot of time working with and teaching young people. And now he want to open his own, perfect school.John Marsden is at the Glen Waverley Secondary College doing what he does best - filling kids' heads with ideas. For years, John Marsden has been arguing that Australia's schools, be they state or private, are full of rigid structures and overbearing rules, cumbersome frameworks which hinder learning.

JOHN MARSDEN: The idea of engaging with intellectual and challenging topics and ideas and questions is good. If we start from those principles, then it becomes much easier to get a sense of how a school should function. You start to realise that there shouldn't be a kind of enmity between adults and young people. It should be the opposite. There should be a wonderful alliance, where we're all moving creatively towards understanding things in as profound a way as possible.
