In week 3 of term 3 the junior and middle primary students were lucky to see two South Australian authors, Mike Dumbleton and Amanda Graham. Students heard about writing techniques and ideas as well as learning how to sketch different characters.
In week 4 middle and upper primary school students listened to Dan McGuiness, a graphic novelist as well as Deborah Abela, Christine Harris and Michael Panckridge from interstate. Each visitor shared information about the writing and creating process and inspired the students to read their books and write or draw their own stories.
To assist with the smooth running of the visits, students applied to be "ambassadors" helping the authors to move around the school and to ensure their visit was enjoyable. They did a great job and are a credit to our school. All authors were highly impressed by their behaviour and support.
Thank you to all the ambassadors, Alex R (room 27), Mia H (room 10), Max J (room 29), Rayyan P (room 27), Taneisha M (room 22), Sam J (room 29), Kayla T, (room 22), Erin M ( room 30), Maddison H ( room 20), Georgia D ( room 30), Imogene J (room 29), Charlotte S (room 8), Ethan M (room 7), Abby Scott (room31), Tayla T (room 24), Samantha M (room11), Jess Freebairn (room 30), Karah G (room9) and Jada R (room 9).
