tips and tricks on Writers’ Week!

Our Year 7 classes enthusiastically shared a session with guest author Tristan Bancks on Monday. Tristan, in Adelaide for Writers’ Week, talked with our students about his books and his journey as a writer. There were tips and tricks, examples and extracts from books, together with funny stories that engaged and amused everyone! The Year 7’s had some excellent questions for Tristan, and they took advantage of his skills and experiences as an author to develop their own understanding of how a book is created. Tristan’s books are very popular in our library, and we were lucky enough to get a sneak peak at his new book due to be released in August. It was a wonderful opportunity for our students to feel encouraged and inspired as readers and writers through Tristan’s outstanding presentation to us.

WELCOME TO COUNTRY

Our Year 2 students loved sharing the book ‘Welcome to Country’, by Aunty Joy Murphy and Lisa Kennedy in their library session last week. Inspired by the story to appreciate and treasure beauty in the world around us, the students enjoyed creating artwork using natural materials from our country.
